Eurogamer: Crackdown 2 Review

The games shortcomings are offset by everything that Ruffian gets right: the masterful way the developers have turned simple neighbourhoods into set-pieces; the moments where nightfall triggers neon signage that reveals a hidden pathway up the side of a skyscraper; the way in which a chain of seemingly random Agility Orbs picks out a perfect racing line of superhero bounds from one chimney to the next and off into the horizon. The cliché regarding this sort of game is that it changes the way you view your own world.

If you need any indication of Crackdown's brilliance, that's surely it, right? If you seek its monument, look around you. (Crackdown 2, Xbox 360) 8/10

With a review like that - so full of superlatives - I wonder why thy only gave it an 8/10.
