Prey Human Head Studios / 3D Realms / 2K Games 2006

Prey was initially developed back in 1996-98 by 3D Realms but never came to completion (sort of like Duke Nukem Forever hehe). Now they have brought in Human Head Studios to develop the original's ideas and build it on an enhanced Doom 3 engine, the most impressive 3D engine used in a released game. The game tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere. His life changes when an otherworldly crisis forces him to awaken spiritual powers from his long-forgotten birthright such as the ability to "spirit walk," or leave his corporeal body behind and use his spirit to bypass barriers. Abducted along with his people to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, he sets out to save himself and his girlfriend and eventually his planet. He also discovers that the alien vessel does some pretty funky things with gravity, and there are sections of the vessel where you can walk on walls and ceilings, and even reverse gravity with the flick of a switch. Portal technology adds a new dimension to gameplay, allowing enemies to appear out of thin air and create new and completely original puzzles and gameplay styles. The highly organic, living environment itself can attack Tommy. It has a deep, emotional story of love and sacrifice. Tommy also has a sidekick, a spiritual hawk that can help him fight enemies and decipher the alien language of the living ship. Prey will support up to eight players in multiplayer. While you'll mostly battle it out on foot, you'll also find a small number of vehicular combat levels, such as an outer space battle. You will find plenty of exotic, organic weapons, many taken off of the corpses of your alien enemies. For instance, you can recover one opponent's "arm" and discover that it's an autocannon with an alternate concussive-blast fire mode. Or you'll discover little alien spiders that can serve as grenades if you tear their legs off (or you can make them stick to walls if you only tear off one leg).
