Most people praising kinects, voice commands working great according to them. hope its true.

I'm not against it, I just don't want it, I have seen it and it is GREAT, Just not for me. It's like if i go buy a house, i should be able to choose the option if i want sun room or not.

that would be great , loved both games.

I wonder if it's gonna be another sloppy cash-in like Crackdown 2 was. They already put out a brown rehash of the first game with zombies, what can they do this time? Perhaps a grey rehash with ninjas? It's a shame the team that made the original Crackdown isn't working on it, because that game was actually decent.

You do realize they created the sequel in about 6 months? That's not enough time to do much of anything so the amount things they did to it were impressive to say the least.

So it was a sloppy cash-in, just like I said.

the gameplay in Crackdown 2 was better, but that was kind of it. If they would've given it a lot more time I hope it would've become a much much better game, maybe even one of the best games this generation.
Crackdown has so much potential, but Microsoft just seems to not really care, hope they've learned from Crackdown 2, give this game the proper development time.

Adexus1732d ago

Wasn't really my point, but sure.

Also Ruffian is pretty much the original team that broke off from Realtime to make Crackdown 2 while Realtime went onto make APB which sucked anyway.

I loved that game. I don't know why but the most fun for me was trying to figure out how to get to the top of the biggest building.

gameonbro1732d ago

yeah thats why i like it

Hope tower was a lot of fun to climb, the best designed tower in Crackdown 2

CarnageXB1732d ago

My brothers game design teacher actually designed a lot of the stuff in these games. Like the agency tower. 1 & 2 were fun. I'm looking foward to the 3rd.
