ORION: Prelude

Survive waves of dinosaur attacks in this multiplayer sci-fi FPS game.


Right off the bat, I have to say that first-person shooters aren’t really my thing… but at 49 cents, I figured I’d give it a try anyway.

I played ORION: Prelude with Nick on co-op survival mode for about an hour. You pretty much just run around and shoot dinosaurs. In between waves, you can buy weapon upgrades and augments to beef up your character. You can apparently also spend real money if you’d like to customize your character further.

This game would benefit from a little more direction in where to go and what to do, especially for first-time players. We also had a few bugs. I got stuck in between two boulders for a couple minutes before we found out there was a way to teleport out. Somehow, other players were able to join our password-protected game. Not sure how that happened.

ORION: Prelude isn’t terrible, but I wouldn’t really recommend it either. At the price, though, it’s certainly low risk if a dinosaur FPS appeals to you.
