So i went to my local GameStop today and saw Prey for $4.00 i figured it was a steal but im not sure...

Do you guys believe it was a steal or a waste of money?

For a measley $4 it is a steal on a global scale, I highly recommend you pick it up if it is that cheap. All you need is two playthroughs and a boosting partner. :)

$4 for any 360 game is a steal.

$4 for any 360 game is a steal.

Very true.

On topic: I too, got this game for practically nothing. So I, of course picked it up. After reading the reviews and stuff for the game, it looks like a steal to me.

This game is okay, it's has some crazy puzzles and decent graphics for a old 360 game. I was able to find the collecters edition for $10 (in 2008), if you can get it under that it's a great deal.

LoL, I got this game for 3.99CDN just this past weekend
Gameplay is alright, story was unique too, graphics are kind of lacking a bit, but c'mon, this was one of the first games to come out on the 360 and for four bucks, this game is definitely a steal :)

I just played through it again on Cherokee difficulty, not really that bad considering you can't really die. Took only 2 days.... funny thing, after the credits rolled and the game ended, right before the achievement unlocked...... FROZE! Had to do the last level/boss again, which really wasn't too hard.

Overall great game - $4 is a steal

I just picked it up a few days ago for the same price. Playing through it so far, I think the money was well spent. I don't mind the graphics and a good shooter is hard to find a lot of times.

A nice game for 4 bucks...just hate having to play through twice.

Very easy achievements.

If only I had payed $4 for it. =P I payed $20 for it like a year ago. It was worth it still though. I still have yet to return for the second playthrough though. I'm really looking forward to Prey 2 as well!

I've just brought this game today for a steal at 2.

Got back and went on it straight away, but these Arcade machines are annoying me >.< I have the Rune master and Video Poker (Luckily with my load of triples) but i can't for the life of me get $250 on Blackjack! lol

This game is very boring and repeatative. I borrowed it from a friend, and had a hard time finishing it. I can't imagine playing it a second time through. But for $4 any game is good, even if you only play it once.

I thought it was a good single player experience, couldn't find anyone to play the multiplayer with :P

$4 for any 360 game is a steal.

I disagree. Sneak King is $1. I would punch you in the face if you offered me $1000 to play that garbage again.

This game is awsome and 4$. Pick it up while you can. But you have to find boosting partners.

I bought this the other day for only 29 SEK (~3EUR/4USD).
Looking forward to another 1000gs for that price.

Will be in need for a boosting partner when time comes, so drop me a message anytime you'd like. GT = svenberg

I would gladly play Sneak King for $1000.

Defiantly a steal. Gamestop is having some nice deals right about now. Just got back from there and got Prey($3.99). Forza 2+Marvel:UA Bundle($7.99). And a Lego Indiana Jones+Kung Fu Panda bundle($7.99) for 20 bucks+tax. For once in my life I actually got a good deal at Gamestop. 5 games. 20 bucks.

A friend of mine sent me a copy because I was having bad bouts of vertigo and he thought it'd be funny for me to play it at that time. That was nearly a year ago and I hadn't touched it. I just put it in a few days ago and I can honestly say that I've payed full price for games that weren't nearly as good as this one is.
I'm just a mediocre gamer but I'm having a BLAST with this one.

Also, it would have been nice to know that there was no chieve for playing Slots before I spent 1hr on it...just saying.

This game is worth roundabouts $40 as far as I'm concerned. I had a lot of fun playing it and it was actually pretty innovative at parts. $4 is a complete steal.

I got this one for like $3 on ebay. Blew through it in like 3 days and then recruited my brother to help pimp out the other achievements. I'm not ashamed of this one at all - i've played worse games.

Nothing to be ashamed of...it not like this is My Horse and Me or Hanah Montana.

This game was alot of fun. It was an easy game but not 'kiddie game' easy. Even the multiplayer wasn't too bad. I paid 3 dollars for it, but even if I had paid 15-20 I still would have been satisfied with my purchase.

I wouldn't really call it a 'steal' for what it's worth lol but $4? That's nothing. Buy it. Campaign was pretty good, graphics are okay for what they were back then, and if you plan to get Prey 2 you'll have somewhat of an idea of what's going on.

The multiplayer achievements are a pain though since literally no one is on playing it unless you come to this site and recruit a few boosters. I got all my kills on Deathmatch, which meant I had to go all the way back and get another 200 kills on TDM for the achievements. My mistake.

If you do plan on getting this game, which I recommend, and plan on getting a solid 1000G, play on TDM. Your multiplayer Team Deathmatch achievements will carry over the regular Deathmatch achievements-- but not the other way around. Enjoy.

I got this game for 3....thats about 5 US dollars. This game is great and I've enjoyed every single bit of it.....I'm doing my 2nd playthrough and I'm on Chapter 17 on Cherokee difficulty. I know I'm going to 1000G this game by tomorrow and I'm a little sad that I've been able to finish this awesome game so quickly.....I can't wait for Prey 2, which I know is very different but the fact that Tommy would be an integral character in the sequel is making me giddy.....I wonder how he has changed.:Bounce:

Steal, The games good n all but it is sort of out-dated compared to most FPS's these days. Decent storyline and achievement list though. Cherokee(sp?) is fairly easy too.

$4 for any 360 game is a steal.

^^ Agreed. Videogames are crazy expensive, especially when they are first released. & some games stay veryyyy high priced for quite a long time.

For the $4 that I had paid for the game, I was pleased with the game. I thought the graphics were okay, and I loved the guns and what not. The storyline was alright... it had some interesting twists, and turned out to surprise me once in awhile. And considering the game is now down to $2.99 USD, I'd say its a pretty good steal. And worst case scenario, if you buy it pre-owned and hate it, I believe GameStop offers you 7 days to return it. So, really, no harm no foul.

For that price, I'd say yes. Great underrated game.
