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.
Excerpt: Predator Concrete Jungle is an action game for the Playstation 2 developed by Sierra. The story sees you as a Predator start on Earth where you are going after a target, it goes wrong and you are shot and injured and in your haste to leave you leave some of your equipment behind. Like any good Predator you are ashamed of your failure and try to blow yourself up which fails to work and you are exiled.
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.
Excerpt: This is a tired attempt to maintain a film based series of games that while it is not a total loser is an average game at best. This is one of those combat / stealth games that tries to be a bit of everything and fails to deliver on both counts with any sort of consistency. Taking the role of the Predator the game opens with you hunting down an Irish gangster in the 1930's, after having to detonate your nuclear self destruct system you survive the blast and end up being...

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.
