'Crackdown 2' Developer Responds To Criticisms, Talks DLC

MTV: The anticipated release of "Crackdown 2" was met with disappointment from fans and critics alike. Despite an improved co-op experience, the rest of the game felt more like an expansion pack than a full-fledged sequel. I spoke with James Cope, producer at Ruffian Games, shortly before the game's release, to get his take on some of the complaints being levied at the game.

Well at least the DLC will keep you playing the game?

matrix2242960d ago

Yep, hopefully it will be free, you know how old people like free stuff :D

dkblackhawk502960d ago

*Kevin Butler reference* lol and it fits perfectly.

GWAVE2960d ago

Wait what? Are they going to charge for this DLC, too?

Do exclusive developers for the xbox360 only care about making a quick buck, rather than pushing their games to the next level?!

what was the size of this game again?? 4GB?! and they already have DLC for the 360 buyers?! Hahaha! yall are being F#@Ked over right before your blurry visioned eyes man!!!
These dlc's might of actually help fill the dvd a little more!!

klado2960d ago

It was 3GB, and not it isn't he, game is more of an expansion than any sequel.

@armyofdarkness I don't think it's Xbox 360 First party developers it's more Microsoft wanting to rush out this game.

It seems Microsoft is the one who pressured them to make Crackdown 2 really fast instead of letting them take their time and do a proper sequel. As oppose to having to recycle much of the content from Crackdown 1.

lol, now how does that work? ;)

PSfan092960d ago

this game should be priced at 40 and now they want more money. Ok, there are too many good game coming out later this year (360 and ps3) no use to giving you hard earn money for this. Im sorry but its basically the truth

StanLee2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

Critics may have been harsh but the demo has a 4 and a half star rating on XBox Live after 24,000 plus ratings so those who have played the demo seemed to have enjoyed it. Frankly, the first Crackdown was a bit overrated. Crackdown 2 is pure fan service. It's for those who enjoyed the first and it's more of the same.

T9X692960d ago

Who said this would be paid DLC? Granted it probably is, but until pricing is confirmed it could be free, especially considering how much criticism the game is getting.

You can find deals on CD2 if you shop around a bit. I ordered my copy from for $39.99 + free shipping. I wouldn't have bought the game for $60, it just doesn't have enough 'new' content to justify full price but $40 is a deal to me.

talltony2960d ago

Some dlc for something that should be dlc. Now even dlc is getting dlc. Sweet!

tinybigman2960d ago

i don't care how hard they try. this game should have advanced everything from the first game, and they went backwards instead of forwards in my eyes.

Sounds very intersting...wonder what the dev has up his sleeve.

dkblackhawk502960d ago

Well, we will have to wait and see I guess.

ElementX2960d ago

Quit hating on Crackdown 2. Yes, it's like Crackdown 1, but I enjoyed the first one and I'm enjoying the sequel. If you don't like it, you don't have to buy it.

ReBurn2960d ago

Exactly. Looking forward to my copy arriving.

The level of stupidity on this site for this title is astounding. Is this what it takes to be part of the "in" crowd?

joydestroy2960d ago

yup, i stayed up pretty late playing around in Pacific City.
only cost me $21 so i'd say that's well worth it =D

BeaArthur2960d ago

More preplanned DLC. If I really like Crackdown 2 I'll pick it up but if it's not excellent I'm not going to be milked.
