It's easy to see why Predator 2 draws such a wide range of opinions, on one hand the fast, unending action poses great entertainment, and spending half the game collecting my own weight in drugs is unintentionally hilarious. On the other hand, the non-existing enemy, weapon and level variety coupled with boring boss battles quickly make for a repetitive experience. One could potentially play for points, but with only seven non-looping stages it doesn't cater to that specific audience as well as it could have. Predator 2 could have been the Master System's answer to Contra, but it lacks in design and sound while recycling too much content.
- Playing a tiny pixelated Danny Glover collecting his weight in cocaine is unintentionally hilarious
- Relatively easy and short. Players will likely finish it on their first playthrough in less than an hour
Final Grade: C+
The image is really just a screen from the movie, but a very good one, showing off the titular Predator. Of course, considering how little we actually get to see of him I'd almost call this false advertising. The image itself is little on the blurry side though, likely taken from a VHS copy.
