Major Nelson has posted the xbox live activity for the week of the 19th. Check it out, Crackdown is in the top five... twice.
"Halo 3 Beta...featuring Crackdown." Just kidding. Crackdown turned out to be a pretty decent game.
keyword... decent I wish they would sell Halo 3 for $25 or something so I don't have to completely waste $50...
if i get about 20 hours of play from a game then i haven't completely wssted the 60 dollars... and that exctly whats happening with crackdown...
Everyone on my friend's list is playing it and so am I. Co-op is so awesome. I've probably got at least 15 hours into this already and I only just finished out the first gang. Edit: Wow, the demo is in the top ten as well.
Xbox 360 Top Live Titles (UU’s) 1 Gears of War 2 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six® Vegas 3 Crackdown 4 Call Of Duty 3 5 Crackdown (Demo) 6 Madden NFL 07 7 Lost Planet 8 Oblivion 9 Pro Evolution Soccer 6 10 Saints Row i suck at gears i get a chain saw to face or get tag by a frag granade, havent open crackdown yet cause i havent finish r6v, cod3 and lost planet...cant open crackdown cause i know i will get addicted to it and i wont be able to finish the other games that i havent finish yet but when its all done i will play it... whats up with papper boy being #1 XBLA is me but whats up with his voice i dont remember him talking do you guys?
i am in total agreement with you... i've got lost planet, enchanted arms, table tennis, and viva pinata all sitting on the back burner while i play crackdown... i didn't think it was possible to be upset with a console because you have too many games to play... march is going to destroy me... or no games will get finished at all... 1500 achievement points by april is going to be super easy
Man Crackdown is so addictive. Collecting the different colored orbs and watching your character become more and more superhuman is so empowering. I often found myself forgetting about reality because I'm so immersed in the world of crackdown. GOW had/has me like that as well. The few complaints critics gave the game was base around the story and vehicle controls. Both of which should be improved. However I don't think those two issues are enough to call the game "descent". I could careless about the story in THIS game because the world is so open-ended that I tell MYSELF how the game is going to end. I choose what boss to take out, how to get rid of their a$$, or if I just want to jump around the city acting like I'm the Hulk. Its the freedom that got people loving this game. I think people who knock the game hard about it not having a beefy story are too used to being GUIDED by a narrator. Its apparent that the developer, Realtime Worlds, didn't want to offer that type of game. They are most certainly capable as they helped in the establishment of the GTA franchise.
I usually focus on one game at a time - SP wise(currently SC:DA, and have a few that I'm playing on LIVE, but Crackdown will be in that special place with Oblivion, where I use it to take a break from my current focus. I'll be playing this game for a long time...just to mess around and be stupid funny.
