5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a gimmick., 15 Jan. 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prey (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I love shooters but can be exasperated,especially by PC ones,by their over reliance on being able to save anywhere,so when there's a difficult bit you're usually left looking at save/load screens for an eternity which seriously disrupts the game,there are a few exceptions-Half Life 2,Deus Ex and a few others but something like Doom 3,Daikatana and Evolva,had you constantly reloading as you were jumped on or surprised by some hitherto unseen enemy.
Prey gets round this with the Death walk,you die,you go all astral and shoot some wraiths to replenish your energies and are returned anew to the spot you died,in effect you are immortal,negative points?,NO!,it means you can be bothered,I gave up on The likes of Doom 3,Farcry ages ago as I was getting miffed at being killed or dying just because of some 'niggles'.
Still just halfway through,but I can see finishing this a few times,unlike Doom 3 which I will endeavour to finish but can't see replaying at all.
I've now finished it twice,once on each difficulty and still can't find any faults,on the harder difficulty there are no health packs/stations and the first bit until you get the Deathwalk can be tricky,your health does regenerate slightly each time though so it takes longer but it's not impossible,great game.
