Prey Review Score Roundup

So far, the sci-fi shooter has received generally positive scores.

Almost one week has gone by since the release of Prey, Bethesda’s atmospheric sci-fi shooter. That hasn’t stopped those who are especially keen from beating the game within 20 minutes. Bethesda’s policy of retaining review copies of games until release means a few of the reviews below are still in progress – but there are more than enough numbers to work with. Prey is a re-imagined version of the 2006 shooter developed by Arkane, and so far, the reviews seem generally positive. On Metacritic, Prey is averaging a score of 78 amongst critics (PC). This result is slightly lower than the original, which achieved a score of 83, but since only 15 publications have submitted critiques for the re-imagined Prey its metascore is likely to change.

Prey made its debut on the UK charts in second place, just behind Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Here at Gameranx, we thought it was an intelligent sci-fi thriller. But what’s everyone else saying?

Prey is out now via Steam, the PlayStation Store, and the Microsoft Store. If you’re playing through it and are feeling stuck, check out these tips courtesy of Bethesda. Does it run better on PS4, Xbox One or PC? Let us know what you thought about Prey down below.
