Cool Prey Demo

Demo available from GA.
470MB.
I've played through the first half-hour. This game is amazing. Elements of HL2 and Doom3, but incredible level design. Give it a try!

The interaction level in this demo is amazing, you can turn on/off almost everything. The puzzles are fairly easy though I imagine they will get harder as the game goes on. Anyone played MP yet? I have been playing on GA servers with Butterfly and a few other (non TOG'er, yes they do exist) mates and its great. Very fast paced (think Unreal Tourny) and very dissorientating!!

I think this will be a buyer when it comes out.

Tried it. Not for me.

I got well into the demo... but I think the "cool" factor overwhelmed me. I think I'm just well and truly over "kill the aliens" type games.
I loved HL2 (single player) and couldn't help but think this demo/game has paid tribute.... or ripped off the many good ideas that HL2 gave us. For some reason HL2 really worked. It just did. This... feels like they are trying to out-do it. Good luck to them.

It looks great, plays great... I guess I've just moved on from these sorts of games. Oh, and having my character say things like "Whoa... That's ****ED UP!!" every five minutes...

I love the multiplayer but I'm already bored with the 2 demo maps...
Bit too frantic with a large number of players, small map, but pretty kewl with only a few...
It's fun to hide your body somewhere and run around annoying people in spirit form.

Particularly like xyz axis thing... having to look for enemies on the walls and ceilings makes it a bit more of a challenge.

Definately worth a look for me when the full release comes out.

Played the demo and yes, it's a nice looking game, but a bit too samey for me I'm afraid. It doesn't break any really new ground despite their press hype and just seems like Doom 3 in new clothing to me.

I'll pass.

Yes I agree with that one.

When bloke said "I feel sick" at the end just before he finds the bar, I felt sick too. I had to stop playng and come back later to finish.

Maybe a miss for me.
