Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

How Bad Can It Be?

Prey is not so bad, violence is not really an issue, sure you can see bodys all over the space station and it might be really scary. But if your a dare devil than this game will not be an issue for you. And there is only one s word in the game. As for drinking, the achohol doesn't make you drunk, it gives you powers.

Scary good fun in somewhat violent sci-fi game

Parents need to know that Prey is a remake of a 2006 game. Both Prey games might be scary for most kids, and that is the bit red flag here. There is some violence, mostly bodies and pools of blood. You will fight aliens that are usually made of black liquid with lots of different guns, most of them are unrealistic. You will also fight some humans that are taken over by the aliens. Language isn't really that much of a problem. I reccomend this game to any teen looking for some scary fun.
