An unfaithful addition to the Predator franchise

Summary: Predator: Concrete Jungle fails to follow any particular story known to the Predator franchise, when quite frankly, the AvP game on the 2005-2013 generation consoles was far more faithful. Playing as the Predator, sprinting through the streets and senselessly beating people to death may seem fun, but it's far from playable. For starters, the control is terrible.
Summary: The film was terrific and the idea of causing havoc in a city environment sounded great so I bought this game. It is quite tricky and fiddly control-wise but after some solid practice in the training grounds, it's pretty fair enough to get used to. Hiding on rooftops and zooming in on people to analyse them behore deciding to kill them is delightfully sneaky. The modes of death are great, so vile but that's the Predator for you.

Summary: With decent graphics, reasonable playability and a small amount of unlockables this is no game to be sniffed at. As with everything there are downfalls. To be fair the storyline is ok. Without wanting to give much away the ending leaves open the option of a sequel. The storyline isn't particularly groundbreaking but has enough interest to want to reach it's conclusion. As i said before the graphics are solid and environments are nothing short of lovely.
Summary: With nice graphics, and all the predators usuall gadgets, this could have been a superb game, it is however ruined by a lame ass story, and an idiotic no checkpoint system, so ur constantly having to go right back to the start of a mission. A free roaming map would have been ideal with a kind of gta type structure, after all, thats wht the predator does, he roams and hunts his kills.
Summary: I expected big things from this game. For a while I've owed Aliens vs Predator Annihilation and have thought how cool would it be if I could actually control the predators and not just tell them where to go. As a fan of the original film, I also couldn't wait. Sadly this game doesn't live up to the hype.
Summary: Ok, lets be honest, while the original films were great, the AVP film sucked. This game continues to link the two stories together. Im not to familiar with the comics, but as far as i can tell from peoples reviews of them, like the AVP film it touches on some ideas to attempt to make a twisty cinematic plot. What they ended up with was a pretty lame story line which couldnt touch the films by a long shot. HOWEVER...the game play for me more than made up for it.
Summary: I had high hopes for this game. I like the films and the comics and I think the Predator is one of cinemas best creations, but that doesn't prevent this game from being awful. There are too many different functions available, which gets very confusing trying to remember what each function does what and trying to control the Predator is annoying.
