GameXplain Writes: "The first Crackdown was largely an anomaly. It was a semi-anticipated game that skyrocketed to the upper echelons of gaming popularity in large part due to the Halo 3 beta that came included with the product. Crackdown 2 is no less an anomaly. It's a full retail game that carries a $60 price tag, but has an amount of new content more akin to an expansion pack than a full retail title. The game takes place in the same exact city as the first game, but has a different mission structure this time around."
