GameZone: "Crackdown has always been considered one of those games that offers up sheer, unadulterated, stupid fun. It was one of the earlier “superhero” experiences that let you run wild in an open city and just go crazy. Well, sort of. While it certainly isn’t as deep as more recent titles like InFamous, Prototype, and Saints Row 4, it definitely laid some of the groundwork for crazy superpowers in games. Ultimately, Crackdown is just a lot of fun to play, warts and all."
