Prequel: A story or movie containing events that precede those of an existing work. This forms a vague descriptive definition as it does not dictate what or how far the movie precedes the story, or if the events do lead up to the film. So to speak, Prometheus is a prequel because it takes place in the same universe as Alien and happens before its time. ...
My default approach is always: watch the movies in the order that they are released.

Underworld is second because it carries on from Rise of the Lycans. Underworld: Evolution is third because it includes the characters from Underworld and it continues the story from Underworld. ...
I believe that a prequel, in order to be considered such, should not only take place in the same "universe" of the original movie/book/game but its plot should also be linked to the original plot, in some way.
