Thumbs up Prey is "Worth Your While"
Gaming news site ign.com is running a story now entitled, "The Games of Summer 2006". In it, they talk about how most games are released towards the end of the year and hardly anything is released during the summer months. The focus here is how 2006 is not like the norm and there are a lot of good games for the Xbox 360 coming out. They even go so far as to say "Generally, however, summer is the kiss of death for games. We're happy to say that between now and the end of August a handful of original, worthwhile Xbox 360 games will hit retail stands."

Of course Prey is in this article; here's what they had to say about Prey:

"Human Head has taken a game that started eight years ago (the first tech demo was shown in 1995), was put on the back burner, and was then reignited and made something genuinely awesome. That's one hell of a story in itself. But the real story is how beautiful the game looks and how well it plays on the Doom 3 engine. Starting with the initial story based around alien abduction and Native American mythology, gamers soon learn they haven't just been brought onto a space ship. They've been transported to an organic, living alien universe, replete with portals, anti-gravity gameplay, and spiritual weapons. The game runs smoothly in both single- and multi-player modes (the latter of which we witnessed at E3), and the mixture of high tech alien and low-tech Native American weapons gives the game a real unique spin. The demos we played enabled eight people in multiplayer, and we'll find out more if that's the final number or not. Still, this should give your summer a real boost."

Head on over to IGN to check out the full article and see what else you can play when you're done with Prey.

Re: Prey is "Worth Your While"
I read that last night. It really is the only worthwhile game this summer on PC, everything else is rehashes of RTS games.

P.S.- There's a PC list and Xbox 360 list on IGN, Prey is on both.

I didn't realize that - it's not the same list, is it?

Nope, different games for each, Prey is the only one I think that made both lists.

Prey seems to hit the sweet spot with its release, competition-wise.

Re: Prey is "Worth Your While"
Can I just say, THANK YOU to Human Head, 3D Realms, and Venom for bringing out a kick-ass game in the Summer!

Especially for the Xbox 360, which doesn't have a huge catalog of existing games to choose from. I hope your efforts are rewarded by ravenous shooter fans and quality-new-release-starved gamers on both platforms.
