"The devastation of Pacific City continues as Crackdown is unleashed for the second time!"
....frowney face. Too bad. Someone should have told Ruffian that sequels are meant to improve upon the first...
they made minor improvements this seems to me like MS asking them to make another Crackdown because 360 software was lacking this year.. its not a bad game..
Yeah, since when is 7.9/10 bad? It's not a steller game, but for any fans of the original, this should be fun. BTW, nobody slated this as GOTY, just an all around fun game, which it is.
Sorry, but how isn't it a bad game if it was rushed?
@godmars290, it isn't bad if it sells to multiplayer and co-op players. It might not even be that bad for single players who aren't looking for story.
yea it looks like a really good ps2 game
stoppped about halfway? WTF oh well...score is below anyways:p
7-9/10. Flop confirmed right? On a serious note: Can't wait to try out that flying suit.
Flopped like a fish out of the water.
Kind of like MAG and Mod Nation Racers, right.
So what was your point exactly? Oh that those games 'flopped' right, because games that get above 7s are bad games. That is stupid, 7 is good, so therefor MNRs, MAG and Crackdown 2 are all good games. Play them, enjoy them, don't fight about them.
I think that was the point. You can't say Crackdown 2 is a flop without saying that MAG was a flop. I would say that they are all good games, but not great games.
MAG, at least pushed something new. It doesn't matter the meta, it has a good USP. CD2 has no decent USP. Modnation, also has a fantastic USP. CD2... nope... (not to mention Modnations meta is 'good'. *sigh* Shouldn't have to defend unrelated titles like this. CD2 sucks, if it had a good Unique Selling Point (USP) then at least people could justify purchase, regardless of reviews, but it doesn't.
Sitris, MAG's metacritic score is a 76. Crackdown 2's metacritic score is a 72. Both have average reviews. Don't defend one mediocre game to spite another.
But this is about Crackdown 2, SOAD. Who brought MAG and MNR into the equation? Looks like it was gamer2010 with the deflection. Crackdown 2 should have been better than this. Some people here told me about the superior 360 line-up for the second half of 2010. They told me that PS3 has shown all their big guns and now it was the 360's time to shine. Crackdown 2 and that Dynasty Warriors game aren't looking too hot right now. My fanboyism can't avoid taking the bait!
Wait, THAT'S Crackdown 2? It looks like a damn flash game. I doesn't matter what the score is. That game should be free.
I never intended to bring down Crackdown 2, the game is good for what it is, thus the scores in the 7s which is a good score, i liked MAG, I loved WKC, LOVED Heavenly Sword, and i think Lost Odeysey is underatted. I was not bringing down Crackdown 2, i was replying to gamer2010s comment about MNR and MAG, if you read my comment again you will see i was not being fanboyish i was in fact complementing all those games!
I apologize Sitris. My eyes aren't what they used to be. I still think these games are mediocre. Not bad, just not great. Crackdown 2 deserves a lot of criticism. How can Ruffian double dip like this?
@SOAD, lack of a budget and they are working on old hardware and didn't want to 'risk' coding the game from scratch (more than likely another budget issue).
MAG got a low scores because it got technically and artistically picked-apart where games with similar or worse graphical and technical flaws like MW2 or pricing issues were brought into the fray and yet were not picked apart. Happens all of the time with exclusives, eh?
remember the days when 7.9 was a a Good game.... Cant Imagine next gen ...if a game scores below 9.5 it will be called a flop
I think so :/
"Can't wait to try out that flying suit." i said that to myself too when i started playing the game and when i got it i was like "this is it?!?!", so don't get your hopes up too much... anyway the first game was way better IMHO.
since when was a game that's practically an 8 a bad game?.. lol god some gamers are too fickle now a days..
Since you visited N4PS3G.com, didn't hear shit when MAG received these kinds of scores. What's funny is MAG is actually a really good game, but since this is a 360 exclusive it gives haters a reason to hate. EDIT: @gamer2010 - Hey there is nothing wrong with Modnation Racers, that game is fucking awesome.
T9x crackdown 2 is the same as the first game but in a new box. Mag is in another league. Mag should have been priced at 40 bucks like warhawk, then the reviews would be much higher. It has nothing to do with being a xbox 360 exclusive. It's worth the hate because it's nothing new.
"Since you visited N4PS3G.com, didn't hear shit when MAG received these kinds of scores." Are you serious? You still hear degrading comments on the game.
Seems like a pretty good game. I had a lot of fun with the first one and I think this one could be fun as well.
Crackdown 1 was the best. This one didn't impress me much.
They gave the story a 4.9, yet they didn't bother giving mario galaxy or mg2 a score for it's story... I honestly wonder how they justify giving the scores they give. I mean, both reviews say practically the exact same thing with regards to the story, and with regards to the progressing. However unlike mario galaxy, crackdown 2 at least features a fully realized multiplayer. One games takes hits on both those fronts while the other has the exact same flaws ignored completely. Honestly, reviews mean nothing.
You must understand that Mario games and Zelda games will never be scrutinized the same way as other games. Classic games are given free passes all the time.
unless you're Morgan Webb, or have no interest in Nintendo (which invalidates your opinion regardless). point is you can't argue with the quality and game play in Nintendo products, why should the be criticized solely for sticking to SD graphics? You look at Xbox games though, that have fewer characters and unique chapters and experiences and you have to wonder why the prices for these games are so high, compared to Nintendo games.
is GOOOOD Retards and yes i have no 360
Wait for a price drop seeing how I didnt play the first
It's not a bad score and I think it's stupid use this to bash the game but that being said I don't think this game is going to make buy a third xbox or anything.
now what? it has a better metacritic score than this
This game sounds a bit of fun but in terms of graphics it Looks like a PS2 in Sub HD upgradge to me. For an exclusive game it is really bad looking when comparing it to some top notch PS3's exclusive that appeared 3 years ago (Heavenly Sword or Uncharted 1) . But yah, Xbox360's games are not about graphics but they are about fun factor like Halo 3 ....
