Predator Concrete Jungle is for Fans only in my opinion and if you are unsure then I suggest a rental. The game could have more substance but as it is I think it’s a cool game all the same. I suggest you knock off 2 points from the overall score if you’re not a true fan.

Predator: Concrete Jungle isn’t completely devoid of enjoyment and shouldn’t be tossed out immediately, especially by those who consider themselves Predator aficionados. For those looking for a solid action experience you should probably keep right on moving as there are simply too many instances of horrible enemy AI and shoddy development to warrant a purchase. The complexity of the controls is completely unneeded and should have been better implemented. Overall the game is a victim of underdevelopment and a great series has one again been tarnished because of it.

For true, diehard fans who don’t care about it being a lousy game and who simply want to control the Predator, well, this won't disappoint you too much. The Predator model, animations, textures, abilities, and sounds are all very good. Too bad those qualities alone don't make for a good game.

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.

Seit Jahren wird der Kampf der Predatoren auf verschiedenen Ebenen ausgetragen. Spieler wurden zum Beispiel in Umsetzungen der lautlosen Alienkiller auf verschiedenen Plattformen aktiv und auch die Filmwelt wartet mit einigen Schmankerln auf. Gut ein halbes Jahr nach der letzten filmtechnischen Umsetzung der Reihe sollen nun auch Xbox-Spieler in den Genuss kommen, in die Rolle eines Predators zu schlüpfen. Mit Predator: Concrete Jungle soll dem Spieler das lautlose Töten auf den heimischen Fernseher gebracht werden. Auf dass der Joypad seine Spielfigur leitet und der Geist der Filme in ihm weiterlebe…

Suggestions: BAlance is the keyword here. SOme of the weapons are actually pretty fun to use. Too bad they don't let you use them. This game is in dire need of extensive testing, and should be recalled for wasting time. If you're the die hard afforementioned Predator fan, then by all means, give this one a rent. If not, I'd stay far away from this one.

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.
X-Power (Aug 26, 2005)
Het mag nu wel duidelijk zijn dat er van alles schort aan Predator Concrete Jungle. Geen van de gameplayonderdelen werken echt goed, de besturing en camera zijn vervelend en op visueel gebied is het ook al niet noemenswaardig. Echt plezier in het spelen heb je zelden. Je moet dus wel een echte Predatorfan zijn, wat zeg ik, Predator verslaafd, om deze game te kunnen waarderen.
GameDaily (May 05, 2005)
There are plenty more negatives to cover here, but quite frankly I just don't feel like writing anything else about this game. It just fell far below my expectations, and believe me when I say that I didn't have high hopes for it to begin with. It's mind-boggling actually how no one has ever pushed to shoehorn both Aliens Versus Predator PC games onto a single disc and release it for the Xbox. They're not the greatest shooters in the world, but they're pretty damn good, not to mention a hot sell at a $39.99 MSRP. Instead we've been given Predator: Concrete Jungle. It's not that it's an awful game. Some of you will have fun decapitating people and cycling through the various vision modes, but as a fan of the creature I'm insulted by this. If you still want to play it give it a rent or wait until it's $19.99. The price drop shouldn't take long.

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.
GameSpy (Apr 18, 2005)
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 (Jun, 2005)
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.
PAL Gaming Network (PALGN) (Oct 13, 2005)
One has to wonder what Eurocom set out to achieve with Predator: Concrete Jungle. As a studio that’s always been on the fringe of the highly regarded group of developers, Eurocom have done themselves a great disservice with Predator: Concrete Jungle, churning out one of the worst licensed efforts we’ve played this year. With a terrible plot, painfully bad gameplay design, bad graphics and crappy voice acting, there is absolutely nothing redeemable about this game, and thus we recommend avoiding coming into contact with it.
