I mean, in practice it's 15 minutes of looting followed by 30 seconds of dying but it's still a fun game! Also I am sooo bad at FPSes. :(

Prey - 9/10

Been a long time since I devoured a game in the way I did this one.  The best of System Shock/Bioshock/even some Dead Space all mixed together.  With careful play I did eventually reach the "nothing can touch me" point, but thankfully only an hour or so before the ending, so didn't ruin the tension.  That was something to do with the order in which I did some optional objectives - had I done them in a different order, I think you could Superman your way through much of the game.

I did a zero-Typhon ability playthrough, and at some point I will probably do another playthrough.  I fear because the story is relatively linear that it won't be particularly amenable to a replay, but it's well worth the money even for the one time through.
