Predator: Concrete Jungle received mixed to negative reviews upon its release with a Metacritic score of 46-47/100. Reviewers complained about the poor gameplay, controls, story and graphics while the Predator model itself was praised as well as the faithful sound effects. IGN Score the game 5.5/10 saying “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.”
Meanwhile, Gamespot gave it 5.3/10 saying “You won’t find much to like about Predator’s graphics or audio, either. In fact, the graphics begin and end with the Predator model itself. It’s clear that all the design and animation efforts went solely into making that model look as good as it could, and in fairness, the developers did a pretty good job with it. Unfortunately, everything else in the game is as bland as bland gets.”
