i love this game CAn't wait CRACKDOWN 2

VaeVictus3821d ago

You've got to be kidding me. While the game was fun in many regards, it was nothing more than an abbreviated easter egg hunt (orbs). You beat the game in about 3 hours, none of the bosses were difficult or presented any different challenges, and quite simply, the game is too short.

Crackdown is a good idea, just very incomplete.

I wouldn't expect a real normal comment from a PS3 fandroid with an avatar like that actually.

If you're able to get through the game in 3 hours, you are this days nr. 1 d!ck, special price for people that play though games under 5 hours

the other stuff was for concept/story.

it was the prince of persia esk how do i get there to that orb stuff i like.

plus the sand box fun.

piling up 100 cars and some busses, trucks, people and blowing it all up was hella fun.
crackdown has the best explosions in a game so far.

"I wouldn't expect a real normal comment from a PS3 fandroid with an AVATAR like that actually"

have u ever seen ur avatar ? whos fandroid now ?

wolfgang3821d ago

So you beat the game in 3 hours ? Ok let me ask you this, do you consider as "finishing a game"...

1. Opening the package.

2. Reading the manual

3. Painting a smiley on the DVD

4. Reading a spoiler about the ending on some gaming forum

5. Trying to put the Dvd into a VCR, giving up, ask ebgames a refund

If you said yes to any of those, well im sorry to inform you that you haven't beated the game.

VaeVictus3821d ago (Edited 3821d ago )

I guess you guys didn't mind paying $60 for the Halo 3 Beta. Never once did I say the game was bad, but it did nothing spectacular. It was short, the graphics were ok, and the length/difficulty of the game is a joke.

Pretty feeble attempts at humor though...I'm not impressed with your 360 fanboy retorts. (wolfgang, mart(mastertroll)

Where was PS3 mentioned anywhere in the previous comment? That's what I thought.

FWIW, I've been owned by the rings of death. Your hatred of Sony is based on...

"I'm not impressed with your 360 fanboy retorts"

Well this just prove you don't know how to :

1. Read comments history

2. Read bio

3. Understand the word "fanboy"

My favorite game in a decade. I've spent at least 20 hours on Crackdown so far, just beating it on Psychotic solo. If you can do it faster: here's a cookie.

There are plenty of difficulty levels for a reason, and the free DLC + Co-Op make this game much more than what's described in your post. Add the pay for DLC, and the game is one hell of a juggernaut.

APB isn't Crackdown 2, its an MMO for PC and 360. http:\\apb.com -think Cops and Robbers.

Crackdown 2, will be something to behold though, hopefully an MMO as well. RTW has Massively multiplayer gaming as their main mission statement.

Wolfgang,

I'm not interested in your bio or your posting past. I made my opinion of the game known and some of you disagreed without giving reasons and also in a less than civil manner. So I suggest you either (1) not get offended by someone else's view of a game, (2) disagree in a better fashion by presenting actual reasons you disagree. Your pathetic attempts to insult b/c you disagree screams fanboy. I will not go out of my way to find out what your posting record is as I don't care.

"So I suggest you either (1) not get offended by someone else's view of a game,"

I wasn't offended, more like annoyed, so no big deal.

"(2) disagree in a better fashion by presenting actual reasons you disagree."

Why you don't like humor ?
OK heres a few reason why I disagree about the game lasting less then 3 hours.
- It way longer if you push up the difficulty.
- It take forever to fin d every orbs
- Some of the achievements are time consuming
- Multiplayer add a lot replay value
- This is the kind of game that you'll want to play again in a few months and start from the beginning all over again.

"Your pathetic attempts to insult b/c you disagree screams fanboy"
I'm pretty sure if we ask other user who's the biggest fanboy between you and me, you sir will be it.

"I will not go out of my way to find out what your posting record is as I don't care"

So you rather have the least information possible before posting ? Suit yourself, your comments will just lack quality.

Have to say awesome use of physics and firepower lol.

However wasnt too keen on paying 800 points to 'enhance' that experience...

Anyways I traded the game in today - I think many will start doing the same since the Halo 3 beta is ending on Sunday.

nice_cuppa3821d ago
