  SiriusDog.com - PREY BEHAVIOR
For those who might not accept the idea that prey behavior invades and controls so much of good dog training, there are a multitude of examples showing how the many forms of prey responses converge to create the foundation for most of our training.
Prey reactions can be disguised in so many forms that one has to look closely to make sure what is really happening.
Unlike the prey dog that may show problems in the beginning with confidence in defense, the high defense dog is confident but its defense drive goes completely out of control.

 Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine - Prey   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Prey has swallowed the Doom 3 engine whole and regurgitated bilious goo that will stick to your eyes and keep them glued to the topsy-turvy screen until you’ve passed through its extremely alien world like a pepperami through a dog.
Weapons in Prey are entirely alien, but of course translate to machine-gun, grenades, shotgun, grenade-launcher, rocket launcher, etc. However, all have interesting secondary modes such as a gas shield, a leech mode (to gather different flavour ammo types such as freeze and lightning) and more.
Prey has all the elements of a great game, you can spirit walk(walk about as your ghost) and also death walk(fight to resurrect yourself.)Prey delivers on all the fun elements of a game while keeping the classic fps system in place.

 Shacknews - Prey Review
In development since approximately 1995, then canceled until the project was rescued by Human Head Studios, Prey has finally arrived, and with it that come features that are guaranteed to, if not re-shape the FPS genre, then at least give it a swift kick in the direction it should continue to head.
Prey has been described by many who have played the demo as "revolutionary" due to the features it adds to the FPS genre.
I enjoyed this puzzle, because Prey wasn't content to force me to use only the pod I had inhabited to proceed; it blended puzzle-solving skills I had used before and combined them with new features, which amounted to giving me a higher feeling of satisfaction when I was able to complete the area.

 Predator and Prey
Prey: An animal that is killed and eaten by other animals for food.
Prey need to get 3 pieces of food (poker chips) during the game, but they can only get one each time.
Furthermore, the prey must have at least one foot in the temporary shelter to be considered safe from the predators.

 Amazon.com: Prey: Books: Michael Crichton   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In Prey, bestselling author Michael Crichton introduces bad guys that are too small to be seen with the naked eye but no less deadly or intriguing than the runaway dinosaurs that made 1990's Jurassic Park such a blockbuster success.
He loves science and technology, he's read extensively (there are 44 references to genetics, nanotechnology and distributed intelligence for the reader to follow up at the end of the book), and he knows how to explain it in such a way that it seems endlessly fascinating and awe-inspiring.
Prey is to a novel what the "wild swarm" Ricky was to the real Ricky: It presents a suggestion of a real book, but lacks the features, the characteristics of the real thing...

 Prey Review
The actual reality behind Prey as it stands now is one of very few similarities to the game that was originally conceived back in 1995.
Beamed aboard a massive alien infrastructure, dubbed "The Sphere", the storyline in Prey has been toned down somewhat from its earlier incarnation, now borrowing heavily from the likes of The Matrix trilogy, but still manages to engage with a reluctant-hero that defines the term, as he struggles to save his girlfriend and ultimately the world.
Prey's biggest quality is level design, something that's crucial when it comes to marking the title out in contrast to its contemporaries, Doom 3 and Quake IV.

 Panogames - Prey
In Prey you take the role of Tommy, a Cherokee Indian who lives on a reservation with his girlfriend and grandfather.
Prey's heart-pounding beginning fuels the entire game with adrenaline, yet it isn't afraid to tone things down with heady puzzles and a dramatic story.
Prey is packed with interesting gameplay mechanics that make it a very different breed of game.

 G4 - Reviews - Prey
Prey's lead is Tommy, an ex-military man (of course) stuck on an Indian reservation.
The meat of Prey is experienced in the flesh and metal corridors of the alien spaceship – a sort of flying abattoir inspired by H.R. Giger and Carlos Castaneda.
Another of the game's key innovations is a clever mini-game that does away with “game over.” When Tommy takes one bullet too many, he pays a visit to the spirit world where he fends off ghostly manta rays, regaining health for each one he skewers.

 The History of Prey
What I had in Prey was an entirely different beast; the entire game universe was hierarchical, meaning the entire universe was one big skeleton which could be transformed beyond belief, and I had a visual motion editing system that was righteous.
It should also be mentioned that all Prey content was removed from 3DRealms.com, including all related press releases and files on the FTP server, in March 2000.
Prey had a presence at the show, especially when attendees entered the lobby.

 Prey review for the XBOX360   (Site not responding. Last check: )
But despite ages in development, Prey is saddled with a tragically unlikable lead character and a tepid story, refuses to follow through on its most interesting features, and delivers an oddly standard multiplayer game.
Prey's weapons are much better suited for close combat than long range -- the rocket launcher in particular is quite weak -- making for a mediocre combat experience online.
Prey is utterly gorgeous, with the sort of bio-mechanical design we haven't seen since sitting in on that Robocop autopsy back in 1989.

 IGN: Prey
Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere.
In Prey, players enter a living spaceship which enslaves alien races and devours humans for lunch.
A unique twist on the first person shooter genre, Prey features such innovations as the ability to walk on walls, manipulate gravity and perform a "spirit walk" by leaving your physical body behind.

 GameSpy: Prey Preview
Originally announced years ago, Prey has been under development in one form another for long enough to make it the Methuselah of video games.
Many gamers (myself included) had long written it off as vaporware destined to be an in-joke for gamers hardcore enough to have heard about all the grandiose promises when it was first announced.
It was all pretty neat, and for a game that's been MIA a while, Prey at least seems to have the potential to distinguish itself from the crowd of other shooters.

 AtomicGamer - Prey Review
Windows XP Prey is one of those odd games that reminds you of the golden days of first person shooters, yet manages to innovate to the point where it's hard to compare this to those games made ten years ago.
Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee living on a reservation, and how he comes to terms with his own future and with his heritage.
As you play through Prey, you'll likely find that while the story is pretty novel and the game design has plenty of familiarity combined with lots of innovation, the execution doesn't quite live up to the quality you might expect after playing something like Half-Life 2.

 Prey: Review -- Strategy Informer
Prey is a refreshing first person shooter that implements a lot of different aspects into a single weird-but-fun game.
In Prey you take the role of Tommy, a native Cherokee who wants nothing to do with his heritage, disregarding the wise words of his grandfather who warns the young Cherokee of an upcoming catastrophe, Tommy’s only motivation is to leave the reservation in company of his girlfriend, Jen.
Now that we are talking about dying in Prey, it is time for us to discuss an aspect of the game that many will love but many others will hate.

 Prey
Wolves have the ability to hunt on their own or in packs, kill their own prey or steal it from others, and locate their prey by either chance encounters or scent (Smith, 2002).
Moose calves and yearlings were the primary targets of the attacks in Ballard et al.'s (1987) study, as wolves prefer to prey on the weakest members of any ungulate herd.
Predators who feed on large prey should also try to maximize their ACR rather than their overall energy intake; this produces the greatest benefit while minimizing costs.

 Boeing: Boeing Unveils Bird of Prey Stealth Technology Demonstrator   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The once highly classified project ran from 1992 through 1999, and was revealed because the technologies and capabilities developed have become industry standards, and it is no longer necessary to conceal the aircraft's existence.
Developed by the Boeing Phantom Works advanced research-and-development organization, the Bird of Prey was among the first to initiate the use of large, single-piece composite structures; low-cost, disposable tooling; and 3-D virtual reality design and assembly processes to ensure the aircraft was affordable to build as well as high-performing.
Bird of Prey has a wingspan of approximately 23 feet and a length of 47 feet, and weighs nearly 7,400 pounds.

 NATURE. Shadow Over the Sun: A Story of Eagles. Birds of Prey | PBS
Yet these eagles make up just one member of a family of birds called raptors -- or birds of prey -- that survive by means of their fierce and deadly talons.
Birds of prey, also known as raptors -- from the Latin word "rapture," to seize or grasp -- may be as large as the Andean condor, which has a ten-foot wingspan, or as small as the tiny fl-thighed falconet, which is less than seven inches tall.
Although there is one exception to this last point: vultures do not have strong talons for killing prey because they are scavengers that do not hunt down live prey.

In Prey, players enter a living spaceship that enslaves alien races and devours humans for lunch.
Prey turns the first-person-shooter genre upside-down with new gameplay features like wall-walking and gravity flipping, making for intense single- and multiplayer experiences.
Prey is built on a heavily modified version of Doom 3 engine and is developed by Human Head Studios under the direction of 3D Realms.

 Prey Review - PC
Prey controls very nicely, like so many other FPS's, the controls can be tuned to your liking and the key configuration is totally adjustable.
Prey is no different, if you come across an item or a button/switch, Tommy's left hand pops on screen to let you know that if you press the fire button, he will merely press the desired object rather then shoot it.
The audio that Prey features is pretty decent as far as sound effects go, I enjoy the strange noises alien technology has to offer and even some of the aliens make some guttural and disturbing grunts.

 PC Review: Prey - ComputerAndVideoGames.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Over 11 years in the making, Prey's eventual release feels like the nervous hope and excited anticipation that you might experience at a safari park, when the man in the car in front gets out and punches a lion in the face.
Prey grabs you by the mouse wrist, and is incredibly keen not to let go - from the moment your casino bar dissolves in a green fizz, and the radio interference subsides as Don't Fear The Reaper starts, chosen by an inhuman dime in the jukebox.
Where Prey scores over Doom 3 and Quake 4 is by avoiding stretches of long, unnecessary darkness, and by some uncanny side effect of the portals, the feeling of linearity is subdued.

 Prey Review
Prey maintains that same epic spirit - the idea of a lone hero overcoming great obstacles to save the love of his life.
Even though it feels near the end like some of the levels were thrown in simply to prolong the single-player part, on the whole, there is nothing really you could take away from the quality of the design.
While not exactly as breathtaking as Half-Life 2, Prey can rightfully be called one of the best, if not *the* best FPS game of the year so far.

 Prey - Michael Crichton
Authors generally have to focus on the horrific effects -- pus and rot and noxious smells and flesh being eaten away and so on -- but the actual threat, being essentially invisible, can't be seen coming by the characters (unlike, say, a charging dinosaur).
Prey is a novel about evolution, and the dangers this constant change brings with it.
Prey is heavy on dialogue, but fortunately it's not all talk and no action.

 [H] Console - Prey For Xbox 360
Inevitably, the minute you mention Prey, the first thing people want to talk about is the length of time it took to get the game done.
The original 1995 Prey storyline, though it was still in development when most of the original team quit, had Talon Brave being abducted and borged by aliens.
I saw the live demonstration of Prey that was being given at E3 in 1998 (Google video) and spent a good deal of time talking to William Scarboro, the man behind the original Prey portal technology.

 Sound Blaster Gaming: Mind-bending Audio in Prey™
I was Audio Lead on "Prey", which means I was responsible for everything you hear in the game, including sound effects, music and voiceover.
As with most other elements of "Prey", 3D Realms very generously gave Human Head free reign to do what was required.
"Prey" features a unique combination of science fiction, organic, and natural exterior environments, plus interesting and original enemies and biotech weapons, all of which provide a unique playground for sound.

 Vincent Ventresca in PREY
PREY was produced by Warner Bros. and premiered on ABC in 1998.
The concept that powers PREY, is a speciation event that has given rise to a new species of hominid or human.
In PREY, Natural Selection has worked slowly over time to create this new species that is clearly focused on destroying the unevolved species of humans, YOU.

 prey. The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.
One that is defenseless, especially in the face of attack; a victim.
To hunt, catch, or eat as prey: Owls prey on mice.
To exert a baneful or injurious effect: Remorse preyed on his mind.

 Prey for PC video game review and cheats   (Site not responding. Last check: )
If that didn’t make much sense, rely on this: Prey is a fun romp, an enjoyable FPS ride that introduces some really entertaining new game features, original ideas that haven’t been played with before.
I wouldn’t complain about it if there were something more to look at than a claustrophobic bloodstained environment, but this entire game feels like one giant corridor, even when you’re set loose into some of the more movement freeing sections.
It wouldn’t be so bad if the game writers had considered adding more characters, plot, and exposition to the game, but at least they didn’t seem to marginalize Tommy, your character, considering his nationality.
