The original Predator, released on the home computer several years ago, was a disappointment. Unfortunately, the sequel isn't brilliant either. Although the game is visually impressive, what really lets it down is the lack of depth and gameplay, as one level is very similar to the next with only the backdrop changing. On the plus side the action is certainly frantic and update doesn't slow down when the action hots up. If you're a fan of this style game you won't be disappointed. Otherwise, think twice.
Predator 2 is aesthetically of a very high quality - you'd expect nothing less of coders Arc Developments. There's a superb intro, the game looks great, sounds fine and plays well. But considering what could've been done with such an exciting license this re-worked of an old and now pretty tired idea comes as a real disappointment.
Quite simply a very average blaster in the Operation Wolf
tradition. Predator 2 lacks suitable emotional hooks to make you want to play and is insufficiently varied to keep you going.
Not as good as Operation Wolf
, and now some £16 more expensive. Don't bother.
Bei PREDATOR II dürfte die BPS wohl ein Wörtchen mitreden. Ich für meinen Teil kann auch so auf das Game verzichten. Da hört bei mir der Spaß einfach auf, wenn die einzige Möglichkeit, für Recht und Ordnung zu sorgen, darin besteht, meine Gegner zu töten. Für sowas ist mir mein Geld zu schade.
If Predator 2 were a "great" game, it
might be worth the wait. The game is
tremendously frustrating, however. For a
computer game not to offer a "savegame"
option, at least upon the conclusion
of each level, suggests that the
development team is out of touch with
today's market. Players are forced to
begin anew on the initial level after each
loss, as though there were some
mysterious virtue in traversing the same ground incessantly. This
tends to reduce the game to the point of becoming a digitized
treadmill rather than an exciting arcade experience.
On the positive side, however, Predator 2 offers enough action
for even the most bloodthirsty player. At the same time, the
game design makes at least some attempt to distinguish between
innocents and enemies in this exercise in killing or being
killed. So, at the much lower-than-average computer game price
at which Predator 2 is offered, the game may be a satisfying
choice for those who cannot get enough super-macho challenges.
