Ok first things first this game is epic i could almost not put the controller down beside some poping detail and a little lag this game is perfect you have a tererist group to fight during the day and zombie like freaks to fight at night not to mention it is always fun to run over freaks in a super car going more than 100 miles per hour down a city street and losing your sight from all the guts and blood the leveling is ok it is kind of hard to level up but it is worth it. you get many car options but run down a road plowing cars out of the way is fun to also jumping from building to building over the city is also fun the story is fine but you don't get much story till around the end. Around when you start you are in armor and once you level up one skill first you get a helmet and once your skill gets to level 5 you get chunky armor leveling up strength is great once high enough you can take a light post a wack the crap out of freaks well i don't want to spoil so i give this game a 10/10 pick it up if you want epicness
all right let me start off saying this game is amazing it is one of the best i ever played it is epic. The story is good but you don't get much intel till the end. The graphics i think are great the lighting is good and you can see the shadows move across the ground as it changes from day to night though the freaks that wounder about at night they don't have much verity they all almost look the same but the vehicles are awesome they all are different in their own way and the citizens cars and cell vehicles are fun to drive as well. jumping from roof top to roof top is fun as you search the whole city for orbs to give your agility a boost it may be repeatative but it is wroth it to get your agility to it's peak so you get gliding once you have that you unlock a new vehicle that is very resourceful the helicopter over all this game is great besides a few poping of detail i give this game a 10
Same Game, But Better
Crackdown 2 is pretty much the same game as the first, but unlike most games that have that description this is a buy for anyone who has bought the first for many reasons. The first and most important reason is that its is just as or funner than the first. The four player co-op enhances this game to an easy must have. The controls are exactly the same and makes it very easy for a Crackdown veteran to get right in.The main aspect that Crackdown is known for is the orbs, and they are definitely back and the new renegade orbs add more of a challenge to getting the agility orbs. The only problem with this game is the lack of story, mainly because there isn't much of one. I would have liked to see more of a Crackdown 1 storyline but it isn't as a big of a deal as it may sound. However,because of the great gameplay, amazing multiplayer experience, orb hunting, and of course the most amazing voice over voice in any game makes this a pick up for anybody who feels like tackling Pacific City again or for the first time.
very fun free rome game
the game is super fun the most fun is when you team up with a friend online and go through the campaign, the city is basically the same exact city as in the first one so its really awsome to re-live old memories and compare it to the first game there are way more weapons in this game than in the first one but not really as many cars the controls are all the same so that was also easy to remember missions are very similar you bassically do the same thing over and over again but dont get me wrong the campaign is not short at all it took me like like 4 days to beat the game even while playing with a friend, the game is very fun to say the least, but the most fun is just exploring with friends online and trying to get on top of the highest buildings and just runing around a blowing stuff up
Great gameplay, Lacking a good story.
Crackdown 2 is a lot like the first, with some extra content. The game is really fun to play, with a feel of you being able to leap buildings and be almost unstopable twords the end. It's meant to be more of a sandbox game, and it feels that way too. There is a ton to do, leveling up your agents parameters, and fooling around in the city. The only problem is that the main missions do get a bit repetitive. If you are looking for a good, original storyline, it's not here. The story is about a girl by the name of catilina thorn who wants revenge on the agency that you work for for a multitude of reasons. She realeses a virus across Pacific City that transforms people into mutants that come out at night due to the fact that they burn once exposed to light. The agency hires and clones a bunch of super-agents (that's you) to handle the problem. Been there, done that. Overall, the the game will keep you busy for a while. If your looking for gameplay, you've got it. If your looking for story, you should look somewhere else.
its pretty interesting... till the end.
ok listen, im not biased against 3rd person games, but this sorta sucks. it is very interesting at first when you get to go out into the big, wonderful city to explore, but over time it just gets a little boring. sure its fun to go and collect ords all of the time, but when they get harder to find it actually makes you less interested in the game, especially when you get alot of orbs at the begining of the game and then barley get any as you get to the end. the gameplay though is far better than just getting to the far to reach orbs. you get over 50 tactical missions to do and all of them very exciting. i do have a few problems though: the camera isnt your best friend at times, especially in fights, and thats pretty much it. Overall, i would recommend this game to a person who likes big area maps, lots of kicking, fighting, and shooting, and is in love with 3rd person beat-down-shoot-em-up games!
this game is like grand theft auto but way better because you are super-human. if you are looking for a fun freeplay game this is your game. you wont regret it.
Fun, but then again it was dumb.
Let me start by saying I never played the first Crackdown. But I came into playing Crackdown 2 thinking it was going to be alot different, and I thought the stroyline was going to be different from what it was. The stroyline was very lame, and I didnt really get what was going on throughout the whole game, so it made the game seem alot worse than it actually was. The Graphics in this game sucked compared to other games that I have played that are similar to Crackdown. But they deffinatly were not the bad compared to some games that have come out recently. Even on the easier difficulty I found my self dying more than I felt was needed. On the easier missions I was dying 2 or 3 times even trying my best to stay alive. And the aiming system did not help because It missed enemys alot. But, something about this game kept me playing. I guess something about being a super powered agent in a town that has no rules made it fun. And killing the freaks with your car was pretty fun. So all around this game was fun, but the storyline was very dumb.
it's the same as 1 but not as good
Crackdown 2 is virtually the same as the first one but it's 10 years later. the scenery is the same except for some areas are destroyed. if you played the first it would all appear familiar. one thing i have against it is the vehicles don't increase in power or transform as they did in the first one. another is that in the first one the islands where split into 3 by three different gangs. in 2 the whole place is controlled by one gang cell. which to me makes it a little dull. In number 2 instead of killing bosses you activate beacons, which unlike killing bosses and their krony's gets a little mundane. it took me about 12 hours to beat the campaign, that includes maxing out my abilities and messing around. yet again it is a little lackluster. I would only recommend this to die-hard crackdown fans and for players who have never played crackdown before play the first one first. because it's better and it ties into the second one in a way.
This comes out on July sixth. So why did i buy it from a local store on july first? The game is pretty much just like the first one with the exception of your agent having a helmet and working in teams of four. The added mutants / freaks to the game, which isnt a bad touch. It makes it alot easier to get your driving skill maxed out. New abilities, lots more weapons, better cars and better sound make this a solid title and if you like the first one, you will love this one. My only complaints are as follows. The narrorator has a really bad habbit of screaming at you. Seriously, he screams at you and i find myself screaming back. i.e killing people and my favorite part. Securing a tactical location and then i die, and the narrorator screams at me for leaving the peace keepers alone. It has its downs but its not a let down. This game rocks! I guess i got lucky when i went to the store. I paid for it and everything. enjoy the game!
