What it's all about
Pretty much the best Predator game I've ever played, and might I say it also gives you the full experience as you travel a storyline with quite a few twists. I think the best part about it is that the predator actually wins in this story. The main concern of the game involves the main character leaving behind several weapons when trying to flee from a situation and ends up being banished on a hostile world for 100 years by his own clan members. He is brought back to find that the humans have dissected his hunting tools and are now using them against any predators who dare to hunt on Earth. All of this resides in a city called Neonapolis, and it is ruled by a dynasty of crime. You fight your way through tough gangs and companies that use your technology, and must retake everything to restore your honor. The end result is taking on the Borgia family. Enjoy.
Predator: Concrete Jungle
Basically Predator is a terrific game with a slight downside.
The story is excellent and surprising with a few good plottwists near the end.
The missions and bonusmissions are diverse and frequently quite creative.
As for the Predator feel:
The cloak has been executed perfectly even taking into account the fact that water is the bane of this tech. However the stealth part of the game though present quite strongly (not being noticed too much is important) has not been executed perfectly and is in fact sometimes frustrating.
When it comes to acrobatics and actions the Predator can perform many well animated feats in diverse ways from grabbing, throwing people to performing a variation of stealth kills, combatcombo's, jumps, 'hopping' moves, different ways of climbing etc... .
Weapon/itemwise everything one could wish for is there.
Plasmacaster, Glaive, Speargun, Combistick, Diskweapon, Claws, explosives, medicomp etc... .
Only downside is the recharging though well done can still be a bit silly seeing how 'draining' the cloak can be for your char.
The weapons have upgrades, plenty of different appearances to unlock (mostly from the movies and new ones).
There are plenty of extra missions and secrets that enable one to unlock these extras.
Bossfights, trophygathering etc are strongly present but quite scripted.
Visually and sound-wise the familiar Predator sounds, techviews etc are present.
The games overall graphics are neither bad nor superb but more than good enough and the game manages to capture the feel of the 'honorable hunter' stalking it's prey through many cutscenes, good plot and the way the char can crouch, lie in wait, moves, zooms in with it's mask, changes visionmodes etc.
The downside is basically it's gameplay. It takes quite a while to get used to and it was only when playing the game a second time I truly 'mastered' it as during the first run many mistakes were made.
It is the depth and the many options that make the Predator sometimes unwielding in the first run.
However by the second time one can easily take out bosses without ever being hit and the hunt becomes all the more enjoyable.
Some parts in the game can be quite difficult too especially if one also wishes to collect the additional weapons and bonusses.
All in all it's a very good game with a rather lengthy learningcurve.
Good plot, plenty of options and extra's make it one of the best games in the AVP franchise.
There have been a few Alien Vs. Predator games, most of them not very good. Predator: Concrete Jungle, however, delivers. The entire game is told in retrospect of a mysterious woman, who you eventually meet near the end of the game. The game starts you off at the end of your 1930 escapade as a young Predator after the proverbial shit hit the fan. The first level has you running and jumping through a war between the Irish gangsters and the Police. Needless to say, you don't make it to your ship. After demolishing the city known as New Way City with the nuclear device on your ship, and surviving, the rest of your clan comes to collect you and sentence you to a 100-year term on a planet infested with creatures looking suspiciously like the creatures from Pitch Black. After the 100 years is up, your clan returns to have your right your wrongs. In your haste, you left your mask and several weapons in the city for humans to dissect and improve upon. When the next Predator contingent went to hunt on Earth in the year 2030, they were captured by the superior weaponry of a company called Borgia Industries. To make a long story short, you must kill them all to reclaim your honor and the technology of your Clan.
Now, for the gameplay. There are 27 levels with 6 alternate costumes (one from both Predators 1 & 2 and one from the hero of AvP) and 3 other custom made Predator suits (they all look very nifty), and 26 upgrades scattered throughout the levels. In addition to the levels there are also 8 Ritual Challenges which have you running around a map collecting waypoints on a timer. Most of the levels are straight-forward "kill them all" but there is one stealth mission and a few other types that are all a nice diversion from the gruesome ways to kill people. There are 7 weapons, Combistick, Glaive, Smart Disc, Plasmacaster, Wristblades, Maul, and Speargun, all with 2 upgrades - Ritual and Clan,in addition to several types of mines. There is lots of ways to kill people including assasination, grappling and impaling. Assasination has you sneak up behind a person and do one of several things including: slit throat, rip off head, chop off head, rip in Half, and cut in half. Grappling is grabbing hold of someone by the head and either throwing them, kicking them or just killing them. With the Combistick, Glaive or Maul you can impale someone and throw them into the air then hit them again. If up and close isn't your style then you can snipe with either the shoulder mounted Plasmacaster or, my favorite weapon, the Speargun which can nail enemies to walls.
The only thing I see wrong with this game is that I would like to see the Predator battling something other than humans and Xenoaliens. The gameplay and storyline are top-notch, especially since the storyline, although confusing at times, offers an inside look at the Predator Clan that the movies do not offer. For Predator fans and ultra-violent junkies, this game is definately a must. If you are not an ultra-violence fan or a Predator fan, you may not like this game.
This game is really fun. I dont really think the camera controls are sloppy. The graphics are good, but i think there should be more weapons.
9/10 on the good side there are hard bosses and alot of missions.On the negative side its not multiplayer nor are there alot of weapons but the uprades replace that. The story: you are a predator who is on a hunt to regain your honor on the way you will have to kill boses such as el hongo, hunter, long spear, swift knife, MOTHER, and a lot of thugs but if you get tired of them oh well you fight aliens in 10.0 and 10.1 aside from that its a great game and has a pretty good story to it.RITUAL CHALLENGES:there are eight of them and some are easy while some are just plain hard. I recomend for predator fans gory games fans and anyone who seen one of the movies.
they should make predator concrete jungle 2
they should make predator concrete jungle 2 because the first was awesome but you sould be able to pick a sertant mask,armor and body such as no hair or have hair and skin color like If you wanted It darker or lighter.
the grafics are arsome
the grafics are arsome but they should make a game where you can make your own armour and do no missons
Everything in this game is killer
What more can I say about this game that the other guys haven't said already? This game delivers. It's not just the graphics or the gadgetry or the weapons or the storyline or the... wait... what am I saying. Yes, it's all that and more. Everything in this game is killer (and I do mean that) after learning all their is to know from the three training missions the game is all out predator frenzy my friend. Don't think this is the jungle with a guy named Mack chasing you singing "I'm gonna have me some fun." Don't think this is a city with Danny Glover on your tail - no, no. This is the future baby and all bets are off as you go against some of your own technology. No easy pickin' hear. Overall - A+ Now if only they could make AVP: Extinction as good as this. Or at least a sequal as good as this.
This could be the greatest alien/predator game in stores
O.k here is what gose down ,your the predator and your mission regain your honner. The time line of the story is 1930 to 2030.You discover that the narrator has ties to the predator.Graphics are great and 3rd to 1st person gameplay is awsome.The levels and landscape is better than the AvP games. And you use weapens seen in the predator movies.The boss fights are great. This could be the greatest alien/predator game in stores.
