    Predator: Hunting Grounds is a fantastic game to enjoy whenever you're in the mood for some chaotic and overly violent online multiplayer action. With that being said, playing it in long sessions will make the experience wear thin sooner rather than later.

    I’ve found myself enjoying my time spent with the game, and I think it has the potential to improve even more. I think if you’re in the market for something akin to Friday the 13th or Evolve, or just looking for a new competitive asymmetrical multiplayer experience, you could do a lot worse than Predator: Hunting Grounds. Just keep in mind that there are elements that feel a little rough at the moment, but barring that, it’s a pretty enjoyable shooter.

    For what it’s worth there is enjoyment to be found here but it only lasts for a few hours and then you’re set for a tedious grind if you hope to unlock that cool facemask or beret; the gameplay loop just isn’t compelling enough and there isn’t anywhere enough content here to retain a fanbase with any real kind of longevity.

    Little content compared to the competition. It has various structural, as well as technical, issues. Fun only in the short term and only with the right company.

    Predator: Hunting Grounds has good ideas: it's more than interesting that Soldiers and the Predator face each other on a "living" map where there are missions to complete, AI-controlled squadrons and animals to hunt. But in practice, it fails completely. Missions are boring, the AI has unforgivable errors and the maps are few and all the same. Illfonic can fix matchmaking and balance issues with a patch, but fixing the rest will take much more work.

    Predator: Hunting Grounds is a multiplayer game with some good ideas, a very famous enemy and... really too many problems.

    Beside horrible matchmaking and a plethora of technical faults, Predator: Hunting Grounds is awfully unbalanced, looks downright ugly, severely lacks variety and is simply unpleasant to play. The game does have a lot of clever nods to the movies and a bunch of great ideas throughout, but the execution is generally really, really bad.

    I think it is marvelously thrilling. If it gets support and continues to grow it can get the succes the formula deserves.

Though I more than got my money's worth from Ilfonic's last release (Friday the 13th), I wasn't sure how well they would manage another game with a similar multiplayer setup, but with traditional FPS elements.

    For a studio that has nowhere near the resources of a title like Modern Warfare, the FPS combat is pretty effective and rewarding.

    They've also played to their strengths, using music and sound design to immerse you in the atmosphere of the original 1987 film. The Predator player has the option to gain HP by killing NPCs, and hearing a distant scream among the other (brilliantly done) rain-forest sounds, while your team is transversing the map, is very effective.

    I haven't had a chance to play as the Predator yet, but given the results of the matches I've played over the last 24hrs, it appears pretty well balanced. Hopefully the player-base stays solid.

    If anyone picks it up and wants to team-up, give me a shout (PSN ID: TheThirdMan42)

It does have numerous flaws, one being load in times for games and the others being numerous in game glitches. I have had a lot of fun playing this game and it really does shine in the fun deparment. It can be thrilling at various moment's, taking us back to the atmosphere of the original film. The predator mechanics might take a little bit of getting used to. I would highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys asymmetrical multiplayer games and experience of playing online with others. Expand

I quote the first movie like I was in the damn thing. This game will give you all the love of that first movie to make you go watch it all over again. The game for those who don't know is a four one one multiplayer game. You can play the marines or the Predator itself. The marines game play while vanilla is still fun. You have to complete your objectives while being hunter by another player who is the Predator. Now if you aren't being hunted that often the match will be over quick and it isn't fun. If your Predator is some kid with ADHD who just runs at you it isn't that fun as the marines either. It only works if they are messing with you and picking your team a part piece by piece. The Predator game play is a stupid amount of fun. You do feel like a Predator if you do it right. I am a bad Predator most of the time. I constantly got seen and would be happy to kill just one player. Now I said most of the time. The few times I was on my game it was the greatest experience of the entire game. The thing is $40 for essentially one game mode with no story mode to speak of is very steep. On top of the lack of replay value the game also doesn't look that great. I could compare it to a late in life PS3 game then a current gen console game. I just wish there was more to this. I want more Predator and unfortunately this game drops the ball. It ends up being a pass because of it. Expand
