Predator: Concrete Jungle
Who You Gonna Call
This is one of those games that kind of flew under the radar. If you're a fan of predator, then you'll love this game. From the stunning graphics to the futuristic storyline; this is just a must have for anyone who owns an Xbox. Even if you don't, it works on xbox360. The story starts you as a Pred-Hunter in the middle of a 1930's city. (A) You start out already wounded. (B) The only weapons that you have are a Glaive and a smartdisk. You must fight your way across a vast city in the midst of some city-wide riot. When you're almost back to your ship, a rooftop collapses and buries you under rubble; you of course detonate your ship killing almost the whole city. Predators come to earth to arrest you and banish you to some planet where ants are as big as houses and just to make things worse all you have is a glaive. 100 years go by and the predators come back to take you to earth to correct your mistake. Once on earth you notice that there are flying cars and some gangs are using predator technology; so your job is to kill those gangs and then the company who supplied them which happens to be the Yutani corporation which is owned/run by the son of Bruno Borgia; the mobster who wounded you in the beginning of the game. I'd rather you bought the game to learn the rest of the story so buy this game.
WOW! Why is this game getting such negative reviews from all these gaming websites and magazines!? Predator Concrete Jungle is a flatout fantastic Predator game. Eurocom without a doubt nailed everything that makes the Predator such a great character. If you've seen it in the movies, you can do it in the game which is just cool as hell. You use EVERYTHING that the Predator use's in the movies/comics. EVERYTHING. Each of the 4 visors have a specific purpose and are used very effectively, there are TONS of weapons (familiar/new) that you can use to reach your target/goal, levels have great variety and are big, the music is just fantastic and really puts you in the mood that you're on the hunt or being hunted yourself. The Predator moves very fast and furious and looks great, graphics while not spectacular, are well executed especially on the Predator model itself, and I absolutely LOVED the storyline to it. It's all about the Predator regaining his honor among his fellow clan after a botched hunt. Needless to say it's very, VERY cool. I also love the fact that when you're hurt and you use his healing needle he lets out his patented scream and if you use it when there are people around they get frightened which is a cool touch. My only negatives about this game would have to be the controls. Now, in no way are they bad, it's just that every single button on the controller is used, even the clicking of the L2 and R2 sticks. But once you get use to it you'll be killing, climbing, and using your arsenal like nothing. The other negative would be the camera. What happens is many times the camera can't keep up with the Predator because he moves very fast but other than that it's all good. I'm a huge fan of the Predator and I have to say that this game has done great justice to him and the license. Great job!
