Has anyone played the demo for the soon to be released First Person Shooter PREY.

If not then i would highly recommend it. I just downloaded it and it has pulled a Far Cry, it has completely redefined the genre.

Very very impressed.

Away downloading it now and we'll see if I agree with you.

Impressed too, my GF5700 only rendered things at the lowest settings, but gameplay was interesting and different, especially the gravity/view aspect change aspects. Must get myself a 6600GT sometime.

I have a 6600gt and i turned the resolution to 1280x1024 and set the settings to maximum (not advanced settings) and it played like a dream, no lag whatsoever.

I dont want to spoil the demo for you all i will say is rotating room.


Its a must in my opinion.

Well I've completed it now. It was very good I must admit but its not in the same league as Far Cry was when it came out. I think after seeing the demo I would buy it and that for me is high praise.

It scored 86 in pc zone review.

Just read a review of the game they say its a must for Halo fans,
But a clan member said he didnt like it at all not least because there are no good bullet hoses in the game (I trust his judgement on this)

Is that based on the demo????

You only get a few of the weapons in the demo..there may well be a good "bullet hose" in the full game.

As for me it's a definite buy.....the disorientating wall walking and spirit mode puzzle solving make it more than a bit different from the rest of the DOOM3 engined games and fps games I've played.

Will be downloading and playing it tomorrow,

Im not saying it as good as far cry just that it has given the FPS genre a whole new twist, just like far cry did.

Far cry is second in my own personal best ever game chart.
