IGN writes: "The first Crackdown is one of the most enduring Xbox 360 titles for me. It's one of those very rare sixty-dollar investments that I wanted to keep putting in my system's disc drive. Maybe it was the feeling of driving around in a leveled-up vehicle or perhaps it was the sickeningly satisfying "thud" effect that played out when leaping between buildings. Regardless of the reason, Crackdown 1 is still one of my favorite Xbox 360 games. Enter Crackdown 2, a title with a lot to live up to when it comes to pleasing rabid fans, like me."
