    Predator: Hunting Grounds delivers on its premise and is a fantastic game. There are certain issues that should be addressed, but they do not overshadow the great-looking graphics, intuitive gameplay, and overall great job done by Illfonic. This one is an absolute buy.

    It has the right ingredients and captures the jungle hunt like a movie – but it demotes the Predator to an accidental source of irritation for the co-op-play of the soldiers.

    Predator: Hunting Grounds has fun, stupid moments, and if this game was only $20, I would recommend it. At $40, it’s a harder sell unless you are a hardcore Predator fan. If you’re looking for a better 4v1 experience and you’re willing to tolerate slow matchmaking, Resident Evil Resistance offers a great multiplayer experience and a decent single player campaign, making it a much better buy, despite being $20 more.

    Predator Hunting Grounds could have been a good product, thanks to the franchise from which it draws inspiration, staging an engaging show capable of bringing to the field one of the most fascinating alien in the Hollywood history. Unfortunately, the realization of this title, as its brother Friday 13: The Game, makes it hard to be bought at full price, leaving us only the hope a good post launch support to save it from auto-destruction.

    Predator: Hunting Grounds offers brief moments of blockbuster action, but ultimately underwhelms more than it excites.

    My concern with Predator: Hunting Grounds is a simple one. If Illfonic doesn't fix the issues with getting in a game and a few bugs like AI enemies glitching into the floor, as well as develop some content to actually liven it up, it'll become another Evolve. If the issues are fixed and a bit of content is made, I could genuinely see this having a decent following. I know I'd come back to it.

Играю с момента релиза игры, НИ ОДНОГО глюка еще не встретил, игра идет плавно, с оптимизацией все в порядке... Единственное что, долгий поиск игроков в лобби, за спецназ от 1 до 2 минут, за хищника до 5 минут, в целом не критично. Игру конечно еще надо доработать, можно добавить тонну контента, так что будем ждать.
    Игра очень годная)

Есть баги, но думаю со временем всё исправят (они не столь критичны). От хищника для победы требуется неплохой такой навык и хитрость (просто так в лоб не нападёшь или как "крыса" не постреляешь с плазмы). Игра за людей это просто "особенности национальной ксеноохоты".

    This game is great. Obviously needs a little bit of work, but I feel like I am in the first Predator movie. 10/10

    From pros:
    Bold plus. The long-awaited game in the universe of Predator. 10 long years.
    1) Costume, but where are the skins of the characters from the movies?
    2) Crossplay, hmm ... my Xbox looks at me askew.
    3) Very beautiful maps, the jungle is magnificent.
    4) A fun game with friends.

    Of minuses:
    1) A small number of maps, I counted 3 pieces, but with different tasks. Waiting for the urban jungle =).
    2) Stupid AI, rush attack. It is better to process AI in a qualitative direction, instead of crushing zerg rush.
    3) Optimization, I think many spoke about this. But I hope this will be fixed soon.
    4) The sound of shooting, it is very bad.

    Из плюсов:
    Жирный плюс. Долгожданная игра во вселенной Хищника. 10 долгих лет.
    1)Костюмизация, но где шкурки героев из фильмов ?
    2) Кросплей, хм... мой ИКСБОКС смотрит на меня косо.
    3) Очень красивые карты, джунгли великолепные.
    4) Весёлая игра с друзьями.

    Из минусов:
    1) Малое колличество карт, я насчитал 3 штуки, но с разными задачами. Жду городские джунгли =) .
    2) Бестолковый ИИ, давит массой. Стоит лучше переработать ИИ в качественном направлении, вместо того что бы давить зерг-рашом.
    3) Оптимизация, думаю многие высказались об этом. Но это исправят надеюсь в ближайшее время.
    4) Звук стрельбы, он очень плох.

At the early levels while everyone is still kinda figuring things out,So after reaching lvl100 I realized I needed to update this review. At the early levels while everyone is still kinda figuring things out, it's super fun. The core idea here is great. Sadly, at a high level of play it becomes extremely apparent that the balancing is utterly atrocious. (Even I, in my original review called out some players for playing to aggressively, but at a certain point it doesn't really matter how careful you are, or precise with your shots.) The game was clearly rushed, and it's worrisome to see a game this small (only 3 maps were included at launch along with 1 game mode) with so many bugs, glitches, and balancing issues. Even a quick visit to the forums makes it pretty clear that players are really unhappy with the balance of the game at higher levels of play.

    The first round of "balancing" was laughable. One of the major concerns was the parry mechanic in the game being too strong. Illfonic's solution to that was to add a stamina cost. However, the cost was negligible, still allowing about 4-5 parries in a row before draining the stamina. As if that wasn't enough, the player could still parry with zero stamina. So the solution really had no effect on gameplay or balance. That's concerning for future updates, as it seems that Illfonic is unsure of how best to make the player base happy. They seem too scared to lean one way or another for fear of alienating anyone. Unfortunate, becasue again, what's here could be great. But right now, even after the recent Predator buff, the Predator is still basically a fox for the fireteam to hunt. There is still a lot of work to be done, and currently Illfonic hasn't shown that they are ready to make serious changes to the game. I can't recommend it in it's current state. It's worth keeping an eye out for future patches, but I'd ask around before you buy.

    My Original Review: Flawed but still very fun, a must for fans of the films or Illfonic's Friday the 13th.

    As an asymmetric multiplayer game, it's important to note that your experience with the game will vary from match to match depending on the play-style and competence of the people you're playing with. At low levels, with an inexperienced player, the Predator isn't much of a threat. You'll see message boards flooded with topics like "Predator too weak!!!" Most of the games that end with a Predator kill is usually because the player jumped into the middle of the fireteam and started slashing away. As you progress into the higher levels however, you'll start to see the game really shine. There is nothing more thrilling than a cat and mouse game against a competent Predator player. A fireteam that doesn't work together and cover each other will be quickly and severly punished. Most games your team will be frantically checking the trees, jumping at every clicking noise. It's a blast.

    I'm surprised by the IGN review. They gave Friday the 13th a 7/10 and this game is just as good if not better. Don't let it scare you off. This is definitely worth checking out.

    There are flaws to be sure. Poor enemy AI, lack of gameplay variety, some slightly clunky mechanics, and a few other rough edges that need polished before this game really shines. As long as Illfonic continues to refine and support this game with new maps, gameplay mechanics, and balancing tweaks I think it could become a multiplayer mainstay for a good time to come. I have a good feeling about this one, and I'm on board.

    I wanted to like this game but unfortunately, it is bad in the current state. Not much changed since beta. Optimisation is not very good and II wanted to like this game but unfortunately, it is bad in the current state. Not much changed since beta. Optimisation is not very good and I see FPS drops even with my RTX 2070 SUPER and SSD. Game play is dull, unpolished and unbalanced. It gets repetitive very soon. There is no reason for fire team to split resulting in no depth in game play and tactics. There are three maps but they look almost the same, just with different layout and few different buildings. This was one of the most anticipated games of 2020 for me and the first big disappointment. Expand

    So bought this on release to play with the wife after hearing it would be crossplay. Unfortunately, between the training mission right awaySo bought this on release to play with the wife after hearing it would be crossplay. Unfortunately, between the training mission right away and then trying to figure out how to invite her from PS4, i was over 2 hours and couldn't receive a refund. Now over a month of waiting, there is nothing even acknowledging if or when they are going to implement what was supposed to be there.

    Gameplay wise, it's bleh and not worth unless playing with friends.
