give us MP finally, couldnt care less about the sp part

thekhurg122d ago

That xbox exclusive mouse arrow in the beginning of the video was incredible...

VideoGameLab122d ago

some call it play anywhere, others dont get it

moldybread122d ago

Lol, I love how he has to plug that PR in, only on Xbox. The game looks OK but yeah, let's see some real destruction in MP. Anyone know if this game will have open frame rate on the PC or is it locked to 30fps like the Xbox?

ProjectVulcan122d ago (Edited 122d ago )

I don't even get the love for Crackdown. The first game was quite good 10 years ago, but Crackdown 2 was crap.

What has this game shown that it'll be anything other than a critical and commercial failure? It looks terrible, it feels generic and dull, and it also looks like it is full of all sorts of camera and detection issues.

But it's an early build! I hear you say.

This is a game that has been in development hell for years and years and it supposed to go gold in about 2 months. 2 months time this game is supposed to be finished. It's not looking good at all.

Shin-Zantetsuken122d ago

Damn... looks so bland, boring, and repetitive. This game will bomb hard. And they have still not showed that cloud-powered fully destructible multiplayer; there is something very fishy about this game.

andrewsquall122d ago (Edited 122d ago )

@moldybread Why are you asking? You will be doing all your game play on Xbone. Or is it the possible PC higher frame rate that has you concerned?

badz149122d ago

most hillarious part...6:55 ~ 7:05

"PLAYING CRACKDOWN! Crackdown 3. this is so much better than Crackdown 2!....I never played Crackdown 2..."

how much did they pay this guy? this is PC footage and they put a noob playing it. who the hell at MS really thought this is the best way to promote this game?

bouzebbal121d ago

All the fuss for this ???
Looks like ps2 quality

RacerX121d ago

Wow, aiming looks terrible, very clunky.

bluefox755121d ago (Edited 121d ago )

Crackdown was never a critically acclaimed. The first game got an 83, the second game a 70. People are acting like it's some "classic" Xbox franchise. In reality it was just a more mediocre Saints Row, minus all of the charm and humor.

I'm the opposite.
My crappy internet connection at home is unlikely to handle the MP side of things.
I looking forward to this for the single player campaign only, well will play some co-op too.

andrewsquall122d ago

Wait, so you are playing it for the solo only but you will be connected online to be playing co-op too. So you AREN'T getting it for the single player only whether you've convinced yourself or not.

JasonKCK121d ago

So your internet sucks for MP but not co-op?

Ghost_of_Tsushima122d ago

This looks terrible. The graphics aren’t that great and the city just looks bland. The gameplay also looks weak and repetitive.

ArmrdChaos122d ago

"weak and repetitive"

Just like most of your Xbox comments.

UCForce122d ago

@ArmrdChaos I think I got cringed after watching this :

trooper_121d ago (Edited 121d ago )

Lol @ Armrd.

Don't get upset over opinions.

patterson121d ago

Agreed. This is a $20 game being presented as if it's a $60 game. What crap.

rainslacker121d ago

Gotta love the major clipping going on with the animations also. Guys legs just go into one another as he's strafing. Can't believe this is what they have after so many years in development. I don't know what MS has spent the money on for this game, but it looks and plays like a low budget game. I always pegged it as a mid-tier game, but it's not even living up to that standard.

OmnislashVer36121d ago


You'd really pay $20 for this game? I'd have a hard time justifying $5.

Erik7357121d ago

I like the weapons, I like how you can pick up dead bodies , and I like the jumping and leveling up in it

Explosions look nice in it at least...

Who the FUCK is in charge of Microsoft marketing? You have a game that everyone wants to see more of to make a decision to buy it or not. So, what do they do? They find a complete novice in a non-controlled setting play the game to make it look as bad as possible. And then Microsoft uploads this garbage themselves!!

I guarentee they lost a TON of sales with this. I don't know what the fuck they are thinking sometimes. I don't know what Microsoft is paying their marketing team, but even if they are working for free, they're grossly overpaid. WTF. . .

TheDBD121d ago (Edited 121d ago )

Looks like garbage-trash. Absolute garbage-trash. Looks completely dull, bland, uninspired, and if it's only on Xbox, that's a good thing. Save PS4 or Switch players the pain of making what would unarguably be a terrible purchase.

Nu121d ago

The game looks like it's not even ready with that crappy hit detection and horrendous physics.

wow looks bad.... I feel sad for the xbox people.

narsaku122d ago

I disagree completely. It looks like it's going to be a really fun sandbox to run around in for awhile. I'm looking forward to jetpacking around, killin some badies, using some super powers, chuckin some cars and having a good old Spiderman 2 free roam time.

Xx_Pistol_xX122d ago

Please don't compare this game to Spiderman.

ModiJi122d ago

Might be fun for about first 5 minutes, from the look of things.

122d ago
andrewsquall122d ago

Haha the delusions have even started that yous are going to be getting a high quality game with top notch animations like Spiderman 2, a PS2 era game from the early noughties. Maybe just go back to saying it looks like 10 and a half year old Crackdown 1.

masterfox122d ago


Seriously it looks pretty bad.

sampson3121122d ago

looks like it's a 2009 game, what a shame.

rainslacker121d ago (Edited 121d ago )

Having seen videos of the original, it looks like they barely moved on from that. If you want all that stuff you're looking for, go buy a PS3 and just play infamous, or get a PS4 and play I:SS or First light. It looks fun in videos, and it is fun to play. This doesn't even look fun.

I'm not one to put down any game due to graphics, but this doesn't look like fun. Maybe the MP is, who knows, MS won't show it, because I guess they like to tease us with this crap. Only logical explanation right?

I know Xbox fans have some standards. Maybe actually apply them here, instead of just accepting whatever MS will dish out for you so you can win some meaningless console war argument against other fan boys in some meaningless forum.

JasonKCK121d ago

"Please don't compare this game to Spiderman."

No kidding Crackdown 3 isn't a QTE fest.

there's no such thing as 'xbox people' . .
you're pretty much saying, you feel sorry for gamers over one game that may or may not be good.

There are plenty of other titles to play both on Xbox 'nd across other platforms, if one game isn't good.

Kingthrash360122d ago

Well this is the biggest xbox game of the
I feel bad for those who at the beginning of the year thought
Sea of theives
State of decay
Would be the major games line up coming with the scorpio.....instead 2 were delayed and 1 was cancelled.
Now we are stuck with crackdown that looks like a 360 game and for a which looks as beautiful as usual....but no matter how pretty it is its gunna be another microtransaction filled racing game that will take hundereds of hours to unlock all cars....or pay for MT like other noobs who bought a supercharged car.
Yes I feel sorry as well. 2017 is the worst year in xbox one history.

sd11121d ago

@kingthrash. Do you think this is a bigger game than halo wars 2 or forza 7?

bluefox755121d ago

There are "xbox people", they are fanatical fans that place the success of a console over their own enjoyment of gaming (very bizarre), but I guess when you're a fish you don't notice water.

2cents122d ago

Haha... Keep your crocodile tears for someone who cares. Don't forget the violin.

2cents122d ago

You clearly don't understand the definition of crocodile tears. But you sure do understand the definition of troll.

obidanshinobi122d ago

I'm an "xbox person" and a "playstation person" and a "nintendo person" and a "sega person".
A real gamer basically.
No need to feel sad for us, we're more likely to feel sad for you.

chrisoadamson122d ago (Edited 122d ago )

I feel bad for people that can only afford one platform... ouch

ModiJi122d ago

He has the best platform with tons of games, don't feel bad for him.

Kribwalker122d ago


Obviously he doesn't, Forza horizon 3 craps on any racing game on your "best platform" halo is the best first person shooter exclusive on any of the platforms as well.....

122d ago
343_Guilty_Spark122d ago (Edited 122d ago )

Their mom is usually the one buying the console.

They are that fat wykid that rages when she buys the wrong controller lol

Kribwalker121d ago

So better sales mean better game? Funny cause call of duty outsold uncharted 4, does that mean it's a better game? FH3 is the best racer this gen so far, by far. Until you play it you have no idea.
And buying games, lol, I have over 230 games on my Xbox one, I'm over 25 games on my PS4 now and my switch has 2 so far and will be getting mario when it comes, you guys are the ones that need to be buying games, when less then 2% of your console base buy games like persona 5 or Nier or nioh you have some serious issues with people not buying quality exclusives

spicelicka121d ago

Hahaha basically this. After owning both major platforms it's so cringey watching fanboys.

Bobafret122d ago (Edited 122d ago )

No it doesn't and no, you don't. What are "Xbox people" anyway?

ModiJi122d ago

Nice way to call xbox fanboys, maybe?

Bigpappy122d ago

Don't feel sad. This is for people who like this kind of stuff. I am not an exclusive whore and this game never appealed to me. Not the first,second, or third. I'll be playing Shadow of War at native 4K30, assassin's Creed at what ever the final native resolution is (look great and smooth as heck), the Bethesda games, and Anthem. Those are what I will be playing on my X. Those who clamor for exclusives can have them. I only play the games that appeal to me don't care if they are on 20 different consoles.

Having said that, if would hurt to have someone who at least plays video games doing the gameplay preview. That whole stream was painful to watch expect for Shadow of war, where that guy actually care about the game.

InTheZoneAC122d ago

they don't know any better...

TheGamingArt121d ago

Apparently people forgot about the Hulk game that released in the PS2 era. They don't quite understand that this is quite old and outdated material.

LexHazard79121d ago

you act like thats all they have to play.

Critic4l_Strik3121d ago

Yeah...that's what they are relying on pretty much. I was bored the first 5 minutes already

DigitalRaptor122d ago (Edited 122d ago )

It seems a bit of a paradox that Microsoft are launching this game after so long, as a spearhead of their "Feel True Power" marketing campaign in the state that it's in. It looks terrible. It honestly looks like an early Xbox 360 game. Not even just visually, I know they've gone for cel-shading, but it's not even good cel-shading and the animations are really rough. No wonder they have to get celebrity/influencer hype in on this.

I suppose this is what happens when you outsource a mismanaged project:

The MP that they still haven't shown only 3-4 months from launch really has to knock it out of the park.

VideoGameLab122d ago

why would you care? Like you gonna play it xD

MrFisher21122d ago (Edited 122d ago )

A crap game is a crap game. You don't have to own a console to watch gameplay and notice this. I'm very disappointed with this game. This was worth the wait?? I guess when you have nothing, you will take anything.

ModiJi122d ago

Why do you care that he cares?

Godmars290122d ago

"why would you care?"

Because Xbox fans here are going to be using it as an example to defend the Xbox brand no well or badly it reviews or sells.

It happens every time Forza and GT, and Crytek's Roman title.

VideoGameLab122d ago

What are you even talking about Godmars?
Forza and GT? What about it?

Godmars290122d ago

So very time there's a new Forza title Xbox fans don't proclaim it "The new racing sim King"? Don't lord over better review scores while ignoring sale numbers which tend to be higher for GT?

VideoGameLab122d ago

Yes, its because Forza is a way better game. Why would I care which one sells more? Do you also think MC Donalds is the best food because they sell the most? Or Coke the best drink? I care about FUN, GAMEPLAY and Content/Replayabillity in games first. If you care so much about sales, why dont dont you come up with the best selling game of all time aka minecraft?

Godmars290121d ago

"Why would I care which one sells more?"

Because you, Xbox fans, then insist that better reviews should equate to better sales of the game if not whole consoles. But because Forza tends not to sell as well as GT, sales don't matter as far as you're concerned.

Nevermind, again, that the difference in reviews tends to average within one point or because Xbox ownership is significant, just not industry leading, if racing games in general where nothing more than a niche, it would be selling more.

VideoGameLab121d ago

Don't know what you want, last time I checked, Forza is the best selling Racing game of the entire gen

Godmars290121d ago

"Forza is the best selling Racing game of the entire gen"

Compared to what other racing games?

Drive club sold about as well, and there's a GT title coming out... this year? In all honesty likely will sell about as well.
