I grabbed Tacoma yesterday because it looked interesting. Still trying to figure out what to do/how to do it without resorting to game guides. I like these types of games. I loved 'Observation' which is in a similar vein I guess. Mystery on a space station.

Prey is half off on Steam. Definitely worth $15. Starts off a little slow, but man it gets really good after the first section. Make sure you have great speakers or a headset for it.

I played through it 3 times. It's one of the best scifi shooters I've ever played.


It's just a dang shame it was a commercial flop.

I've played all of the Serious Sam games in cooperative mode. They are a ton of fun!

Agreed. One of my favorite games in recent memory. Just replayed it the third time a month or two ago.

A lot of people didn't like it took about 5 hours to get really good, they also didn't like that the game required a beast of a machine for about 3 months before it was optimized.

I found the respawning enemies a chore, since the loot doesn't respawn and sooner or later I ran out of ammo on the higher difficulties. Only did the first large area of the game before calling it quits.

Also didn't like that the enemies were just dark blobs that were about as generic as they come.

Limited ammo is part of the challenge. Prey and System Shock games challenge your intelligence and require forethought and planning to succeed. One of the best features of these types of games is you can truly mess yourself up so badly you can't win the game by making poor decisions. They are not for the faint of heart, but reward those who use their intellect.

What has ammo saving to do with intellect? Especially in Prey, since you can just use your tyfon skills or run past the enemies to ignore the problem.

It's poor game design, since the respawnable enemies keep dropping stuff so you're just grinding like an RPG, but without the sense of progress.

I'm sorry you don't understand what I wrote. I feel as if Prey is not the game or you. Maybe Pokemon would be better. At least there you'll have clear, visible progress in the vast library of Pokemons you collect.

Some of us regard System Shock/Ultima Underworld style games among the best genre of games ever made. You either "get" them or you don't. They aren't for everyone, but they are among the most rewarding experiences you can have gaming.

It doesnt have Aim Down Sight... I didnt finish it. Just got tired of the gunplay. Was a cool concept though and I enjoyed the atmosphere! But not enough to carry through. I took the escape shuttle when I found it and then uninstalled the game. I loved the opening though!

I loved it, the story was great, the tension kept me engaged, never used typhon skills, just enjoyed it all and the sound and big monstor was great.

LOL! I'm not sure if your post would fall under a "negative" or "positive" review category. Rotten Tomatoes would be confused for sure. biggrin

Well stated. I'd say the Paradox strategy games are also perfectly described by what you wrote.
