IGN’s review score for Prey has caused some controversy. Dan Stapleton wrote the review, and gave Prey a 4/10. The main problem Stapleton had with the game is that it corrupted his save file. Despite receiving assistance from the developer (Arkane Studios), he could not finish the game due to the save corruption bug. Later, a patch was released updating the game and fixing the problem. Stapleton then updated the review and changed the score from a 4/10 to an 8/10.
