On the whole Predator is an enjoyable shoot-'em-up with some neat effects but a disappointingly straightforward conversion from its 8-bit predecessors.

This is very similar to Ikari Warriors
. The difference is that here the scenery scrolls sideways, whereas Ikari scrolls vertically. It's basically a Rambo type game in which you cut, hack and blast your way through the jungle. It's good, but I think I prefer Ikari.
I'm still fairly undecided about this one. It is true that the game has a fair amount of action and the animation of the characters is quite good. However, the pace of the game is so slow that, on getting killed for the umpteenth time, I actually timed the opening helicopter sequence - 42 seconds! What a waste of time having to go through that rigmarole every time a new game is started. Overall, not something to shout too loudly about although, knowing my luck, everyone will think it a hit and I'll left with egg on my face. It could be good if everything was speeded up by a factor of two and the unnecessary bits cut out - enough said.
