Game Boyz: "Released in 2007, the first Crackdown was known for including access to the online beta for Halo 3. Beta aside, the game was a big success both critically and financially. I was a huge fan and was excited to hear Crackdown 2 announced at the E3 2009. Fast forward to the present and Crackdown 2 makes it way to stores on July 6th. Handled by a new developer, Ruffian Games, who are made up of several people that worked on the original game, I was eager to find out how this sequel fared."
