Default PREY is FREAKY

After downloading the demo, I purchased PREY and I have not regretted my purchase (although it was over 60 dollars).

This game has great eyecandy, trippy weapons, crazy gravity inverting stuff and puzzle/portal things and shuttles with guns and tractor beams....... I ain't even done the game yet..... (so dont ruin it for me......:nono: )

It has very good voice acting in it too: you actually empathize with the character that you're supposed to be - and laugh at what he says when under extreme duress!!!

I'm really diggin it and highly recommend it if you like the good old "Earth getting taken over by Aliens and you save the human race", type of thing.

The only thing I didn't like was the high price, but generally, if it's a good game, I ususally get many many hours of play out of the single player. I stretch my games out too, because I'm not really one to play for 6 hour marathons - ususally around an hour or so then on to something else - sometimes it can take months to get through a game.

I usually have a few games on the go, as well, so I can mix it up if I get stuck on a level or something.

But Yea, PREY IS FREAKY

Could have bought it off of Steam on the cheap, they have it for 19.95 U.S. I've already beat it and yeah, it's a great game.
