    @Phattso

    All I can really say is it plays really well, and is deeply silly.

    It is the video game equivalent of an 80's Jackie Chan movie. The story isn't great, the acting isn't great, it isn't as funny as it thinks it is - but Jackie vs Benny the Jet, 10 / 10.

    Just did another couple of hours. Just exploration - visiting ?s on the map, a couple of Arks. Quite like it. Haven't even gone to meet the first main plot NPC yet.

    From what I've played it comes across as a game that respects your time and makes me feel like a badass from the off.

    I would recommend doing the first quest for John Marshall (?) at Gunbarrel.

    I spent a bit more time earlier with it but itís just not entirely clicking, I still think it can change with some more abilities etc. It doesnít seem all that easy on hard and maybe thatís removing some of the ďfunĒ

    I've just done the first few areas on the map and the mission at gunbarrel and it's not really clicking for me either. On the Xbox One X it really doesn't look great and so many effects and animations look last-gen ( like a blade stuck in someone in an early cut scene with a badly aligned fountain of blood clipping through him).

    The shooting is ok but not as satisfying as Doom and the menus and quests and everything all lack that polish that Doom did so well. I think maybe my expectations were just too high after Wolfenstein and Doom, maybe this will grow on me when I unlock more skills.

    I find the shooting in this to be very satisfying.

    Double jumping over a fully armoured enemy, knocking his helmet clean off with one shotgun blast, then finishing him off with a blast to his exposed melon before hitting the ground never gets old.

    Only fights I find myself cheesing are the ones against the Authority towers. Finding a wall high enough to shoot over, but somehow high enough to block its barrage against me!

    I feel they added the "red ring of death" (you'll know what I mean!) attack as a counter for this kind of technique, but hey, it still gets the job done until I unlock the rocket launcher hehe.

    I've been to the cinema twice this week. Both films had a rage 2 trailer. Who ever made the trailers did an incredible job. I did enjoy the combat but those trailers make it look incredible!!

    Indeed although it actually made me want to okay doom instead. :). Even though I must have beaten doom three times minimum.

    HAH. I'm on the Collector's Edition (digital), so I got the BFG early. Doing one of those optional polygon-triggering mini-bosses early in the game (still not met the first main-plot NPC). Had already fought one and killed it slowly in a fairly nail-biting battle. Decided to try the BFG on the second.

    1-shot kill.

    That is how a BFG should be.

    Big. Fucking. Gun.

    I have unlocked the ejector seat for the Phoenix, but I have not unlocked the hover ability.

    This has proven to be a bad choice on my part.

    Rocket launcher is pretty cool. As is the ground stomp.

    @Rogueywon thing I find annoying with the bfg is that it always defaults to the next swap weapon. This has caused a few deaths due to breaking my flow and having to faff with the manual switching. Possibly less of an issue on pc with number switching I guess.

    Textures really are pants on the x, no idea how they fair on pc, it needs higher res ones for sure. Surely they could have been better on the enhanced consoles.

    @ChiefGB Textures are ok on PC, but no more than that. As per my earlier post, while Prey is not a bad looking game, it isn't even close to being on a par with the likes of Metro Exodus or Far Cry New Dawn.

    They are a bit low res, it's an odd one. Still think there should be a 4k 30fps option.

    @Frogofdoom Doh, twice this week I've made that mistake. All these games with four letter names confusing my simple little mind.

    Just wait until Fuck and Twat come out in 2020.

    I hate the travel between locations in this. No idea why but I really dislike the vehicles.

    The first car you're given for a race may be the worst handling vehicle I've used in a game.

    It's as if the concept of a car was entirely alien to the person developing it.

    Oh Iím coming up to that part, have to say it is quite addictive in its own little way. Just a pleasant distraction for a bit.
    Yeah the handling of that vehicle was a little crap really, managed to win still though, just. If you miss a corner you get wiped the fuck out.

    Sound mix is all over the fucking place too, especially in towns. Everything nattering over itself and canít hear the person right in front of you.

    Driving does feel like something to just pad the game out rather than being a necessity. It is also dog turd that the boost doesn't even feel like you're going much faster. They just use the sound and the vehicle drag to give the impression.

    I assume if you can upgrade the boost there is a difference in speed?!?!

    Dunno, I am finding the vehicle combat for less engaging than.......dare I say it.....mad max.......

    I canít be arsed most of the time when something drives by me to engage (although that may get better with more weapons etc) nothing like the thunderpoon so far though.

    Ok so Iíve finally had some time to stick into this on a session and itís managed to keep me playing all day so that can only be a good thing. Not going to trouble anyone goty list though I donít think, but itís decent.

    They really dropped the ball with the story but some of the npc interactions are hilarious and unnerving at the same time.

    Anyone else come across Dirk Viscus and Benedict Bumfluff having an argument in Wellspring? lol

    Also feels really dirty in the MB studios!!

    Yeah I can honestly say it's my least favourite open world game for traversal. Thankfully the meat and taters shooting is great so it's not a deal breaker.

    The gunplay is fantastic in this it's just a shame they had to shoehorn it into an open world. It would be a lot better if it was a more linear, consise experience like Doom. In fact if id had made the whole thing that would have been preferable.
