Great Price For Lots of Fun!
Crackdown is an encredibly fun game with a vast open world and days of gameplay. The graphics are good for its time (2007), and the gameplay is smooth and easy. There is some slowdown in the framerate occasionally, but otherwise that is fine. There are lots of cool guns and tough bosses to kill. Plus, there are 500 agility orbs and 300 hidden orbs to find. So once you beat the game, you can go back and waste time trying to find those. And one of the major things about Crackdown is that it is NOT a GTA clone. For starters, the game designer was the creator of the original Grand Theft Auto, so it's his idea. And secondly, the way of how your powers (agility, driving, explosives, strength, and guns) evolve and become more powerful over the course of the game heavily differs from the stylings of Grand Theft Auto. And finally, you are a cop killing gangsters, the total opposite of GTA. So in the end, the fact that Crackdown is only $6 is a steal, and any fan a sandbox/open-world game should definitely give it a try.
This game is so much fun!! First off I just bought this game today. But let me tell you, this game is simply amazing. There's not much of a story line but it's still amazing. So basically you are an "agent" and your in an "agency" and your job is to bring justice to the city. You take down gang leaders and fight gang members in the game. You level your characters ability's as you go through the game by fighting and jumping and doing races throughout the city. I never really heard of the game before and i saw a couple of videos on it, so i decided to pick it up and give it a try. Well it was worth it and i'm going to get the second one when i'm done with this one. The question is would I recommend it to a friend? The answer is, absolutely. The game is unique, with it's graphics and game play. Honestly in my opinion one of my favorite sandbox games ever.
I've played the demo, so I must say that while some people think its cheesy, I believe the cell shading (cartoon look) gives Crackdown a unique feel. People have already used the demo to create insane piles of cars 5 stories high just to blow them up. And the engine suffers only a minor drop in frame rate when this occurs. The most addicting feature is the collection of hidden and agility orbs scattered all over Pacific City from it's lowest tunnels to as high as the top of the Keep. I've read an article stating that these very orbs must be the secondary reason for calling the name CRACKdown due to the addiction of obtaining these orbs is comparable to crack cocaine. Plus the achievements demonstrated in recent videos take advantage of the various insanely cool things you can do like juggle a person or car with explosives. If you like open-world games, Crackdown is a must buy. And if you also like the Halo series, certain Crackdown packages have invites to the H3 multi Beta.
Crackdown is an amazing game to say the least.just another example of why to buy a xbox 360.for the price i didnt expect much although ive had some other games to prove that wrong as well. i brought the game home and played.and played.and played.A game that microsoft out did there selfs on crackdowns graphics go along well with the quickness of the game.the upgrading of skills is fantastic.and fun.jumping from rooftop to rooftop scaling buildings big and small.is great.all while blasting others(gang members and (agency peacekeepers)alike =])with a wide variety of guns.or just kicking them into next week.on a negative note the boss battles can get a little repetative.crackdown also brings melee into play.hurling cars round n' round. crackdown enhances a feature not many other games do.CREATIVITY!!!the possibilities are nearly endless.packed with plenty of guns,cars,and setting to explore crackdown is a near perfect game.one more thing that puts Crackdown head and shoulders above the competetion is the price.its a steal go buy it!!
Just like GTA, but your the cops
Crackdown is just like an older gta but your the cops. You have free roam all around pacific city while you battle the three major gangs: Los Muertos, The Volk, and Shi Gen. As you battle each gang by unlocking the dossier targets and elimanating bosses, there are countless hours you can spend ( me included) exploring the city and taking down enemies with a variety of attacks. You level up your character in strength, agility, explosives, driving, and weapons. This system is ok, but i am not that fond of it. Besides going after the gangs, there are secret orbs hidden all out the city that you can find and help u level up. After you beat the main bosses, there are the kingpins (leaders of the gangs) that you have to eliminate to finish off the game. Kingpins are usually located in a well fortified base with thousands of gang members. You also can go GTA style and jack cars to go joy riding or get to and objective faster. Crackdown is a game that delivers well and will give u hours of pure gaming fun.
An awesome Classic
If you are a fan of games that use guns then this game is definently a match for you! You are a biologically enhanced super police whose job is it to take care of 3 gangs in the large town of pacific city. This game has so much to do that people new to this game may feel overwhelmed! Controls are very well made and there is wide variety of weapons and vehicles to drive and obtain! There are also many secrets such as the 300 hidden orbs. As you play through the game you get experience for killing gang members. Killing gang members will gain experience in 4 of the 5 fields of skill: Guns, Explosives, Driving, and Melee. Completing races and missions spread around the city will net you experience for Driving and Agility. As you gain experience your skills will increase and your character will change! Due to this the game is also a hybrid of rpg elements as well. However at times the game can get quite difficult so it is no pushover. This game is very long and will definently satisfy the hardcore gamers!
After the Halo 3 beta ended I thought I should see what I paid $60 for. Boy was I suprised at how awesome Crackdown was! Instead of being the "bad guy" like in Grand Theft Auto, gamers play the role of an elite police officer that takes down the crooks. An arsenal of vehicles and weapons makes this job most enjoyale in a very large world! Crackdown is a futuristic, next generation, online take on the wide-open Grand Theft Auto genre. You play as a super-human agent assigned to take out the filth that has starting filling up all corners of your city. The city's thousands of gangsters have grouped together into three criminal organizations: Cai-Shen Corp, an Asian gang that uses hitmen to extract revenge, The Volk, a Russian gang that specializes in guns, and La Muerta, a Spanish group that loves cars. Your overall goal as an agent is to defeat the bosses of these organizations, bringing peace to the city. You are a one-man super army, but if the going gets too tough, a friend can jump in and play along with you in co-op mode to bring an unstoppable crime fighting force to Pacific City.
IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT THE CONTROLLER DOWN!!
Crackdown, an epic game, Crackdown to me is like life, in the future. A super enhanced agent with maximum futuristic technology! I recommend this game highly!
Just like GTA and saints row 2
This game is so fun.Your a superhuman who can jump 50 feet and is super strong.You can go around killing gangs.I love kicking people bec. they fly.You need to level up in strength to hit harder,pick up heavy things and throw things farther.You also level up in shooting,agility (the higher the level the higher you jump and faster you run),driving and grenades.There arent any cool cars though.The missions are basically to kill gang bosses.Once you kill a boss you take that hideout the boss was hiding in.The game has cartoonish graphics which I like but some people hate it so they give it low ratings but the gameplay is awsome.If you like saints row 2 or gta you should like this game but the only downside to this game is that if u kill a civilian by shooting them your shooting level will lower but by very little.Just a little xp.Same with meeleeing.If you kill them by kicking them your strength level will lower(you get strength xp by meleeing enemies).
I recently got re-addicted to the original Crackdown and I have to say it was better than I remember. When I first got it about a year or 2 ago I was really into it. You basically shoot, make big explosions, and kill a lot of people. And that is a turn on for me, sometimes I'm in the mood for a sand-box shoot-em-up and others for a more story driven experience. And if your looking for in-depth story then you won't find it here... However this in no way hurts the games appeal at all! Even being around 3 years old it's better than over half of the games out there in my opinion. I got to nearly the end of the game before I started becoming a little bored of it (this was before the "Keys to the City" free add on). So I attempted to just start fresh from the beginning... incidentally, I wiped my heart-drive. But back to the game... the graphics are personally some of my favorite, sometimes realistic just doesn't suit me, depending on the game (like this one) the cartoon twist fits in perfectly. Giving you a great experience on what I believe to be a great sand-box shoot-em-up, beat-em-up, 360 classic.
