Sometimes, despite your best alien intentions, the life of a remorseless slaughtering machine keen to make his mark means that, sometimes, you just have to butcher all humans you meet in the most savagely eviscerating manner imaginable. This is one of those times…
Are you, like me, sick of having to defend the human race against hordes of invading aliens? Never a week goes by that the stupid, pork-smelling, Earth-cloggers don’t need saving from some space-borne threat and, frankly, I’ve had enough. In fact, what I want is the other extreme: to indulge in some therapeutic, wholesale man-massacre. Which is a bit of luck, because in a break from having to handle the human side of things, with Predators, for once you get to play as the alien aggressor as he, quite literally, tears mankind a whole new hole.
So the premise is this: you’ve got to prove yourself to the rest of your dreadlocked clan by taking on not only nine of the deadliest human beings ever assembled, but also the bonkers Beserker Predator, the dogged Tracker Predator and the hawk-handling Falcon Predator, all three of which will make your murderous marauding that bit more miserable. But then, they turn out to be soft fluffy kittens compared to what awaits in the form of your ultimate nemesis, the exceptional horror that is the Super Black Predator!
Keeping controls simple with a virtual left directional stick and multi-functional buttons to summon the slaying, gameplay is smooth and 3D graphics sharp and detailed, and with plenty of upgradable awfulness to be earned or bought via in-app purchase, you can play and slay all day long without fear of the experience turning less than fresh.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Simply put, Predators is splendidly violent entertainment. The official app of the film franchise, gameplay can occasionally get a little repetitive, but as a well-developed time-waster for a predator-preferring human-hater, it’s hard to beat.
