Ah, cool. Didn't see the thread until now, but it's kinda small, and some people could have missed the initial drop.

Can't wait for impressions. :)

Sorry for my language, but...

Prey Invasion just SUCKS.

The graphics are so primitive that I cannot look on the screen, the sound is the worst I could imagine in a game, the control system was made by idiots.

Im honest and I just tell what I think.

Im the first in German AppStore who wrote about this game.

My review is still Number 1 there.

I became my money back from AppStore, because this game is an insult for iPhone gamers. Games like this shall not be in the AppStore.

I am fan of FPS games and I was waiting for Prey. But this is not Prey. This is bullshit.

Its my opinion.

"This is Prey. This is bullshit." - fixed ;)

How can people think this could be worth more than a nickel? The original Prey was one of the weakest FPS games in the last 10 years. It was boring, it was relatively ugly, it was uninspired and the multiplayer was even worse...

How could this be any better?

lol reviews are pretty much opposing to each other... looks like IGN got some "power ups" to boost score :D

I felt Prey sucked as well. Was boring and graphics were not that great.(aka pretty bad) The controls were bad and the story was uninteresting. I didn't refund in hope to get better games as they had a good idea but was poorly executed. Unfortunately, I was wrong. They never updated it and Duke Nukem has bad controls as well, though I heard they will be fixed in an update.

The controls weren't optimal for sure, but this game gets too bad a rap here. I enjoyed it...my biggest complaint was the length. It was WAY too short. It needed to be at least twice the length.

i haven't played the iphone one yet(i'll bite for a dollar), but the original prey was one of the better single player fps i've played in the last decade. i don't know what computer you were playing it on, but the graphics were fantastic for its time, and i find it funny that you find the gravity pad mind-funk spirit walking native american badass killer in space game to be uninspired, but whatever. i had a lot more fun with it than doom 3 to say the least.

Wholeheartedly agree. I also liked it better than Quake 4, which came out around the same time.

just played it for a while... same control scheme as Duke Nukem, but at least Digital Controls are responsive and game is playable, you can switch off auto center - there are NO problems like they are in Duke 3D (check this video http://youtube.com/watch?v=iURAvQ1hA8c ) - still you can find better control schemes out there in other games, but you wont be tortured while playing Prey

going to play more, will post info later

my bad, I meant analog... digital are "breakneck" but they works good in both games... I prefer analog ones and I had problems with them as shown on that video

The analog controls in prey are less glicthy than duke nukem. just cut of the strafe.

But the complaints about the graphics I don't get at all. Sure the enemy character graphics aren't all that great looking, but the stage/background art is pretty stellar. It's actually probably the best looking FPS on the platform so far. It ain't Cube...but unlike Cube it actually runs at a good framerate so all around it's better looking and running. Probably Hill Billy looks a tad bit better...but Hill Billy plays in smaller rooms/levels than this game. And nobody better bring up DOOM Resurrection. That's a rail shooter, not an FPS, so comparisons wouldn't be fair. Prey Invasion's graphics kinda remind me of Moon or Metroid Prime: Hunters on the DS...only a tad bit cleaner.

Doom Resurrectio has waaay better graphics! (Yes, I read all of your post!)

And you should learn what FPS means!
First Person Shooter!
It doesen't say anything about being on rails!

I haven't played the iPhone version either but prey for the 360 was a great game and I'm eagerly waiting for prey 2.

Don't get that guy started or else he'll come back with a 2000 word manifesto including charts and graphs over why a game is or isn't a FPS. I agree that D:R has highly superior graphics. After the update, I believe it's the best game in the app store rails or no rails.

I don't think the controls are bad at all, but the game is very boring. The locations and paths, the enemies, all boring.

I flipped the three switches to show the girl out the window and got in game messages about the bridge.

Where is the darn thing??? Help please!

Ok. Worked it out and finished the game. Two to three hrs total but a good bit of that was just figuring out what to do next. If you are hurting for an fps you could do worse esp $.99. I will replay this since I like easier games.

it was not worth the $2.99, free for 99cents is what it should of been the whole time

I finished the game once and somehow got the severed hand to open the door near the end of the game. I have no idea how I got the hand and now cannot find/get it on my second run through.

Anyone know?

Sorry to resurrect a super old thread, but this game was recently removed from the US App Store...I was planning on buying it, which I now cannot do....Does anybody know why the game was removed?
