I would recommend any players of Predator : Concrete Jungle to stick with the game and persevere with some of the frustrating sections, there are some real gameplay gems in store for you later on if you are a fan of Predator and stealth gameplay.

Predator: Concrete Jungle is a terribly flawed title with some of the worst cameras and controls seen in a PS2 game in recent years. Still, as a Predator fan Predator: Concrete Jungle is a game that kept me hooked from start to end. That should be enough to get most fans checking this game out - especially with a lower RRP of only $69.95 here in Australia. "I'm gonna have me some fun, I'm gonna have me some fun, I'm gonna have me some fun."

Once you've beaten Concrete Jungle (assuming you can actually bring yourself to do it), you'll have a challenge mode to play around with, as well as a bunch of unlockable costumes to dress the Predator up in. If playing dress up with the Predator and messing around with a bunch of weak challenges (that are actually worse than the already-mediocre main game is) don't sound like fun activities for you, then Predator: Concrete Jungle isn't going to be worth your time. There was certainly good stealth-action potential in the Predator license, but Concrete Jungle all but completely wastes it.

Malgré sa licence qui laissait supposer une possible adaptation de qualité, Predator se noie dans les turpitudes habituelles des jeux se basant uniquement sur un nom sans se soucier d'un fond pourtant remplis d'idées et de possibilités. Peu intéressant, dénué d'originalité, manquant d'imagination, et surtout lacunaire dans sa gestion de la caméra, le titre de Sierra ne parvient pas à convaincre. Pourtant entre le design fantastique du Predator et les scènes cinématiques probantes, il y avait de quoi composer une bonne surprise. Dommage. Je retourne me cacher dans la boue, moi. Juste au cas où.

Apesar de incluir elementos de diversos jogos conhecidos, o resultado final carece de diversão e sobra em frustração devido a escolhas erradas e à fragilidade da mecânica de jogo. Os fãs do Predador até podem querer terminar o game só para ver todas as cenas não-interativas e todos os equipamentos do personagem, mas para quem apenas procura um bom título para se divertir, terá de procurar em outras selvas de concreto.

Once all is said and done - and to be blunt - Predator: Concrete Jungle just isn't very good. Whilst on paper it does a job of letting you be a Predator, in practice it just resembles a confused mess, and feels broken. There is a good concept in there, and the fanboys of the Predator franchise may lap it up, ensuring another game is produced. And who knows, given a few attempts we may have a decent Predator game somewhere down the line. Don't hold your breath, though.

What this all comes down to is one question: How much of a Predator fan are you? If playing as the Predator in a 3rd person game is what you've been jonesing for, I could actually see some gamers getting into this. How long they play depends entirely on their love for the subject matter and their patience level, because once you've seen everything this game has to offer, there isn't much to stick around for. Maybe it's just the fact that I'm fresh off a marathon stint of Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, one of the tightest games I've played in recent memory, that Concrete Jungle pales, but I don't think so. 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.

You are limited to repetitive tasks in boxed in city locales and these are made worse by button-mashing combat and an infuriatingly erratic camera. The greatest atrocity though, is the way the game butchers the Predator character. Celluloid's most vicious alien turns into Crash Bandicoot, bunny-hopping around levels and across buildings, diluting the stern adult tone that the 18 rating promises. Being a Predator ought to feel powerful and dangerous, but Concrete Jungle leeches enjoyment from whatever potential there might have been in the 'humans as prey' premise, making the game cumbersome, frustrating and certainly not worth hunting down.

In summary then, this has too complicated a learning curve for a one-night rental, and is too much of a disappointment to warrant an actual purchase. Predator: Concrete Jungle is a game that only fans with extremely low hopes for the franchise should pick up and play.

Game Informer Magazine
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. There are more issues in Concrete Jungle then there are action movie clichés in Predator 2, including all the regular offenders: a pitiful combat engine, wonky controls, and a strode-inducing camera system. The Predator may be able to take on Arnold and Danny Glover, but even he can’t defeat Concrete Jungle’s muddy graphics, lame mission, and ridiculous story. The world’s fiercest hunter seems to be on a one-way street to drinking gin out of a bottle in a dark ally with The Scorpion King, Van Helsings’s version of Dracula, and other movie villains who will never again appear in a video game.
