Predator 2 -- Acclaim Entertainment

Predator 2, by Acclaim, is a new over-head action-shooter for the Sega Genesis. Rescue hostages and fight both drug lords and alien hunters in your quest for survival.

Exactly what was in that hamburger? Predator 2 indeed was a bloody one. The game concept is sound and game play was excellent. Nothing stunning or new, but none-the-less enjoyable. The ability to crab walk was nice, as was your large arsenal of weapons. The hostages were standard, but ohhh... those Predators.

I thought this game followed the movie rather well. It is one of those graphic games containing scenes which may not be suitable for young children. The graphics however are not up to par for the Genesis. It carries the same style as the hit Smash TV. A game that will challenge any video gamer. The music is of an eerie quality which goes with the game quite well. Overall, a pretty good job.

Woah, this is one mean game. Definitely aimed for the mature players, this cart packs a solid punch. I like this game all-around, but my favorite part is the background music... it fits! And best of all, the game sticks well with the movie's storyline. Very similar in play style to Williams Smash TV style games, I think this cart will be a big winner!

I like a game with a good body count. Definitely a member of the Smash TV/Total Carnage genre of games, Predator 2 sported more than its fair share of blood and guts. While not entirely unique in concept, extra challenge was added to the game by the limited number of hostages the Predators were allowed to blast into bite-sized morsels. The digitized movie frames at the beginning of each level were a nice touch.
