    A partially lacerated corpse of a game with great chunks of fun missing.

    Predator: Concrete Jungle does a fair job of putting a console face on the galactic big game hunter as well as offering some genuinely fun moments, but unfortunately the linearity, ropey camera and basic fighting mechanics don't make for a particularly long lasting experience.
  3. People have complained up and down about the story, and that’s fine, but anyone who has followed the comic books knows what is going on without a problem.
  4. It looks the part and it has al the right elements. It's just cumbersome and rarely rewarding to play. So close to being amazing, yet so obviously not. Shame.

    Unfortunately, four vision modes, a wonky camera, and an arsenal of superb weapons hampered by weird restrictions, limited power, and incredibly awkward controls absolutely ruins any continuous or deep feeling of enjoyment or fun that might be had.
  6. The stealth only somewhat works, the combat is mindlessly simple, and the storyline makes Alien vs. Predator look like Dostoyevsky. Now, throw in some fairly ugly graphics, a lot of sloppy platforming, and an onslaught of moronic mission goals, and what you've got is a game you want just about nothing to do with.
  7. Predator: Concrete Jungle deserves to be murdered, flayed and strung up by its heels at your local games emporium as a shining example to all. If not, we’ll do one better: DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.

    Unworthy prey. [July 2005, p.85]

    I think the developers have cloaked a budget title into the guise of a full priced affair, which is way worse than some thug stealing a dude's wallet. Watch out Universal Vivendi....you could be the subject of the Predator's next rampage.

    What could have been an awesome Predator game is actually one ugly motherf***er. [July 2005, p.111]

    There's a big list of moves and attacks, but you never find any worthwhile ways to use them as the game devolves into tiresome plough-ahead combat. [June 2005, p.56]

    Playing the Predator's new game is about as much fun as being stabbed in the groin with his wrist blades, and then having the wound peed on. [June 2005, p.126]

    The ideas that drive the game are really good, and this could have easily become the best Predator game to date, except for all the mediocrity. [July 2005, p.77]

    The game itself lacks heart. [July 2005, p.74]

I am a hardcore predator fan since the first movie came out. I can understand how non-predator fans can hate this game, but if you like predator its awesome I think. AVP the movie I thought sucked because they didn't get the skills of the predator right. This game pretty much sums up the predator skill and power pretty well. Full Review »
