An ornate and clever if slightly under-cooked System Shock successor, which makes the most of a truly magnificent space station setting.

It's let down by lacklustre combat and some annoying enemy design, but Prey is still a compelling, beautiful immersive sim.

It fails itself when it tells you what to do, but you have plenty of opportunities not to listen to it and have a great time in the process.
