Mooncrash is an enormous paddling pool compared to Prey's Olympic swimming pool. There's none of the depth, but it's a heck of a good time to splash around in.

All in all, Prey: Mooncrash makes Prey better. It isn't a conventional addition to the game by any means, but it does more than enough to keep us coming back for more. It's well worth a download if you own Prey, and a great reason to check out the game if you haven't already.

If you own a copy of Prey and want a reason to go back to it, pick up Mooncrash without a moment's hesitation; it's absolutely essential. And if you've not yet played Prey there's never been a better time to jump in.

The experience that can be found in Mooncrash is just as exciting as what is in Prey. At times it feels as though it could be even better due to the lack of an official story; it feels as though the trials and tribulations that come with each attempt make for amazing stories themselves. The best part is that even though there are five characters and five escapes, the variations of how to guide each of them to successful escapes are seemingly unlimited. The only downsides are the excessive loading times and a fairly lengthy commitment to get all the character progressions rolling. Story expansions are fun for most titles but this completely separate rogue-like experience is a refreshing way to revisit the Prey universe and is a justifiable purchase for all survival simulation fans.

Arkane Studios offers a very well crafted roguelite experiment, although repetitive on long distance, with some small but forgivable weakness.

Mooncrash does not need big novelties to be surprising. In fact, at the level of game mechanics what it does is divide Prey's to show differentiated game styles. Randomness plays in favor of this expansion, completely recommended for those who enjoy the original game.

There's no doubt, Mooncrash is a must play for anyone who enjoyed Prey. But it's also a must play for any fan of roguelike games. The RPG aspects, the procedural content, the mystery of the story... it's all so on point that it's hard to knock for anything but the similar faults of the original game. Prey: Mooncrash is, simply put, the best stab at a roguelike a Triple-A studio has ever tried, and it's proof that there's room to expand on the format.

Bethesda could have written Prey off with no further support, or released a DLC that just did more of the same, but it didn't. Prey: Mooncrash is an excellent expansion to a great game and adds enough of a twist to feel fresh and exciting.

If at first you don't succeed and find yourself horribly mauled to death by a lunar landshark, try try again. Prey: Mooncrash takes the core elements of Prey and tweaks them to provide a new and immersive experience that offers a fresh new spin on Arkane Studio's fantastic game of spacebound paranoia.

If you have enjoyed your time with Prey, don’t let the random elements deter you from buying this expansion. This is basically the best thing for a downloadable content that the developers could have done with Prey’s gameplay and it is worth its asking price if you want more of the same.

Rather than just making more game, Arkane made a different game within their game, and done to an excellent degree. Making the game into a AAA roguelike is daring, bold, and pays off incredibly well. Mooncrash is a wildly different game than what you find its main mode, and this is to the game's benefit, as Mooncrash exemplifies what makes the combat so good. There's a story to tell here, and while I wish there was bit more exposition, Prey - Mooncrash excels at what it sets out to do. R. Yu ready?

Mooncrash is the AAA roguelike you never knew you wanted. It takes several of the best things about Prey and breathes new life into them. It might not be more of the story of M.Yu, but there is still enough mystery to keep the horror themes alive as you try to crack the perfect run through the moon base.

So in general we can say to be in front of a very nice DLC, which, although I do not expand the content at the plot level, still manages to please a lot. The most interesting part is the feeling that gives us: it seems to be constantly under pressure in a place full of challenges and enemies. We will never have a moment of respite, never a second of breath, we will always be breathless on the neck and this is the maximum. The level design is studied ad hoc, the enemies are difficult to face, as well as the challenge in its entirety. We will never be bored, because the developers have also thought about this, introducing the procedure that serves to always keep up the level of challenge. In addition to this, the varied number of characters and abilities will always help to face the challenge in a different way. In short, another wonderful work by the studio that proves once again able to achieve an excellent title in terms of gamplay but also technical. We strongly advise you to keep an eye on this DLC!

If you're looking to enjoy more of what Prey already was, then I think there's a lot to like with Mooncrash. The core systems and mechanics of Prey are still readily found in Mooncrash and as such make for a lot of fun, challenging objectives to overcome. For me, it was an experience that lost steam the longer I played, but I can't deny how much I enjoyed its initial opening hour.
