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.

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.

Silly load times aside, Prey: ooncrash is a great DLC addition to Prey that both compliments the main game and does something new with its best features.

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?

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 are yearn for a new Prey experience, Mooncrash will do it for you but considering the price of the package, I'd say playing the first game and waiting for a sale is your best course of action.

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 are a lot of people who will get a kick out of Prey: Mooncrash, and we respect this - and we realise and like that it's a different type of challenge to the main game. However, we loved Prey and Mooncrash just left us cold.

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.

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!

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

Prey: Mooncrash is easily one of the best pieces of content for any game this generation and if you’ve somehow not played Prey yet, there has never been a better time to start.

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.

Mooncrash is a DLC focused on the combat and survival aspect of Prey. In spite of the fact that these were not the best aspects of the game, Arkane Studios manages to offer something fresh and innovative that works so well.

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.
