In the original Crackdown, Pacific City had character. Its three colorful districts – ruled by three competing gangs – all presented their own unique landmarks and platforming challenges. In Crackdown 2, 10 years have passed; the gangs are gone and the city is derelict, overrun by masses of zombie-like mutants. Police barricades block off street corners, smashed storefront windows sit neglected, and a thick layer of dust oppresses the entire city. A once-great metropolis lies tarnished – much like my fond memories of the first Crackdown.
