Prey Xbox One, PS4, PC This clas­sic alien ad­ven­ture is a joy to play – and lives up to the hype cre­ated by an ex­pen­sive mar­ket­ing bud­get.

The orig­i­nal 2006 Prey was a unique spir­i­tual story where a Chero­kee de­scen­dant was ab­ducted from his lo­cal boozer by aliens.

Its pre­de­ces­sor is much more of a run-and-gun shoot-em-up set in an im­mer­sive, vi­brant world that lay­ers in both shooter and RPG el­e­ments.

Play­ers can craft their own play style based on game­play choices while ab­sorb­ing alien abil­i­ties and unique skills.

As mankind’s last hope, fend off the alien in­fes­ta­tion armed with the tools found on the sta­tion, your wits, weapons, and mind-bend­ing abil­i­ties.

You must stop the Typhon threat from de­stroy­ing hu­man­ity – should these crea­tures reach Earth, life as you know it will end.

The main draw­back is the lack of any mul­ti­player op­tion – for that rea­son alone it can’t get full marks.
