Microsoft's given a less than subtle hint that a sequel to Realtime World's beloved open-city 360 shooter, Crackdown, is a little more than fantasy.
how is this "major hints" ? All the article recaps is Major Nelson saying the community wants a sequel, and the other party saying it's their favorite game. Not sure what the actual podcast says, but the quotes in the not-so-news article certainly have no hints, let along "major" hints, nothing but speculation. Yes the game was a success, and a sequel might very well happen somewhere down the line, but this article confirms jack.
The first one was terrible. I'd like to see how another one performs without a halo 3 beta code!
Infamous is greater than Crackdown plus Prototype.
Crackdown was a superb game, have recommended it to a few people and they've all loved it after buying it. You obviously didn't give this game the time it deserved.
Crackdown sucks, I've put it in my 360 twice and got bored of it very quickly. The game looks really really crap graphically (it could have easily been done on PS2), the only reason people bought this game was for the exclusive halo 3 beta on it.
The graphics were better than gta4. much more going on and a better framerate.
The first one is one of the most under rated games around, it was fun, addictive one of the best games to be finely balanced with the achievements. And the two player co-op made it even better. This time around it needs to have a bit more variety on the missions tho.
And maybe bosses could be more than just normal baddies with lots of health?
crackdown is one of the best if not the best 360 games out. If this does come out it will a very good thing, but RainOfTerror makes a very good point about this article not really giving any hints. I would love to be able to play a sequel to the first Crackdown, but I just don't see it happening any time soon based on what the developers have said.(but who knows)
Agree once again. Crackdown was real fun. I have to admit that I only bought it for the halo3 beta but ended up loving this game
Crackdown was awesome. I bought it, and i think it was totally underrated. The game is a true sandbox game. That was one of it's downsides, the bosses could be killed in any fashion. I killed the last boss by hitting him with two rocket laucher missiles that blew him off the building. It ended so quickly, but the game was still amazing. And i think the graphics were absolutely superb. I really hope they make a sequel. I've been waiting for this.
Ohh baby!! 2009 looking good. Cant wait till they announce the full 09 lineup at GDC or CES.
CES? who the fvck announces games at CES? it's for consumer electronics... oh yeah just like MS was going to announce some killer games this year at all the conventions? and what happened?... Viva Pinata 2 please, at most you'll get Forza 3 and some sh!tty Rare games
Smart companies who know how to surprise their fanbase. Obviously you dont know that since your company of choice only attends E3 and yet somehow still menages to bomb there. Also announcing Forza 3 and a rare game is much better than announcing a TOP SECRET GAME plus a nother shaitty GT HD remake. ''oh yeah just like MS was going to announce some killer games this year at all the conventions? and what happened?... Viva Pinata 2 '' Retardetion. Unbelievable
from what i read. Microsoft opted to not publish the sequel even though it was in development (early stages of course) either way dont loose sleep waiting for it. the same studio that made crackdown is working on APB so crackdown is on the back burner for now anyway.
Great great game...would love to see a sequel. It also had fantastic DLC, it actually improved on the original game, it just didn't extend gameplay.
I hope we see Crackdown 2, but I thought MS had already poured cold water on the chances of a sequel (for now). Crackdown is my favourite sandbox game - far better than GTAIV in my humble opinion. I'm really hoping inFamous also delivers.
Oh Hell Yeah! Crackdown is just one of many classics on the 360. :)
Thanks. I worked very hard on it.
the only reason why it sold is because of the halo 3 beta
I'm afraid I never really 'got' the first one. I tried really hard to like it, but it just didn't do anything for me. No doubt some people will welcome a sequal, but I don't believe it would be a huge game.
I agree with most people. I only bought Crackdown for the Halo 3 beta and only played the actual game when the beta finished. After that, I thought crackdown was great, short, but great. You never know Crackdown 2 might come with a Halo 4 beta LOL.
because it came with the halo 3 beta, however this game would have never got the exposure it did without the beta. the game is a great game for the genre and it's a instant classic in my mind. I know guys who were more focused on collecting orbs than achievements. regardless if you think infamous is better or whatever you feel about this game doesn't take away the fact that it's a million seller and it was a good game.
crackdown was a super fun game. futuristic gta and super sweet cars and driving and weapons....why a ps3 fanboys in the 360 section here talking trash?...it sold 1.5 mil dont be jealous
crackdown sold more than half of ps3 games
