Summary

This is a Predator game?

The Good

What, you expect me to like this garbage just because you play as Arnold Schwarzenegger. No way. I mean, in some cases this thing is kind of challenging, but that's not good enough. I am expecting a lot more from a game based off Predator.

The Bad

First of all, Major Schaefer (the guy who is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) is PINK. Pink is probably one of the least compatible colours when you think of Arnold. Also, you start of with absolutely no weapons at all. The only weapon that is available from the tart is a machine gun that is up a tree.

Trust me, that gun will help you a LOT. Why? Because there are a whole load of aliens which you've never seen from the movie. Who are these aliens? In the movie, Arnold fought only the predator and the other enemy guerrillas.

And these enemies aren't the "friendly" type. Also you have to fight off other enemy soldiers (wait, didn't all the other enemy soldiers DIE in the movie?). I could spend all day talking about the bad parts of this game, but I won't.

The Bottom Line

I almost forgot to mention one more flaw: in this game, there are 30 different Predators in this game but in the the movie, there was only ONE predator. Did the developers of this game even see the movie? Obviously not.

Predator is nothing more than a waste of time and money and it should never be bought. I spent two hours trying to like this game but I never did.
