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.

So it's just a question of how far you can get before the thing grinds you down. This would get dull enough even without the game's poorly implemented multi-load.

Overall Predator is a standard action game that makes good use of its movie license. The game also keeps track of the high scores even after being turned off.

Der Schwierigkeitsgrad des Spiels liegt viel zu hoch. Es ist praktisch kaum möglich, die ersten Levels zu überleben, da die Steuerung der Spielfigur ungewöhnlich ist und man nur unpräzise schießen kann. Dafür sind der dritte und vierte Level kindisch einfach, wenn man erst einmal heraushat, wie der Außerirdische zu besiegen ist. Die Mischung aus handfester Action und Strategie hinterlies so einen bitteren Nachgeschmack.

Predator wird wegen des von Anfang an ultra-hohen Schwierigkeitsgrades und der stark gewöhnungsbedürftigen Steuerung schnell nervig. Und wer das erste Mal den Außerirdischen sieht, fragt sich, wozu er sich all die Mühe gemacht hat...
