5 Ways to Make Crackdown 3 Awesome

GamerZines writes:

Creator of Crackdown 2, Ruffian Games, has began hiring for two as of yet unannounced game projects which have been described by the developer themselves as "high octane, visceral" titles that are "heavily focused on online."

It's safe to assume that at least one of these are a new chapter in the agent and achievement loving Crackdown franchise, and even though some of you may moan that the last game was anything but stellar, we have the golden formula on how to make this franchise great once more. (Crackdown, Crackdown 2, Crackdown 3, Xbox 360)

Bring back the magic of the first, and fix the firsts problems like you should of done in the second?

My Crakdown 3 Wishlist:
1) Fix the problems of the first; poor lock-on intelligence, not enough main missions/targets, etc.
2) Better enemies with better AI.
3) Give better excuses to use Super Powers of character...the first game was filled with obstacles and situations that made using your powers both fun and essential.
4) Pay RealTime's 100 Million dollar debt and bring the team back together.....okay, MAYBE that one is unrealistic.
5) Don't reuse Pacific City again....seriously.
6) Spend >8-12 months making it ( http://www.examiner.com/vid... )

The only unrealistic on on that list is that anyone would actually pay to bring realtime worlds back, they would of had to at some point made so astonishing games in the last couple years, other than crackdown which as alright at best and APB

or just 1: don't take 3 and a half years to make a game that then turns out to be the Red Dead Undead Nightmare expansion pack for Crackdown.
2: make a new game.

Agreeable but I say move to a new city.
kissmeimgreek  +   1662d ago
agreed. Pacific City felt so... lifeless and boring in the sequel.

Have a new city, engine and missions
R2D2  +   1662d ago
I agree with you Mr.John.

If they use the same city in the 3rd installment, then its a no go for me - same with Saint Row 3.

Crackdown 2 was a HUGE letdown. I liked the 4 player co-op and the glider suits and stuff. And the competitive MP wasnt too bad either.

But they didnt change really anything at all, we need a new city, upgrade the engine and add some more things to the game. Dont take stuff out from the previous title like they did with Crackdown 2.

Crackdown 2 could have been a really great game, but they really didnt improve much at all. The one thing that made me mad was they really didnt change the city at all, they just destroyed a few buildings, they should have maybe added another part, or redone a lot of the towns to look different

Original dev team would be a good start !
kissmeimgreek  +   1662d ago
yah... I dont know if youve been keepin up but thats not gonna happen haha.
Bluemaster77  +   1662d ago
SMH thats retarded dude
kissmeimgreek  +   1662d ago
I dont know what SMH means but since Realtime Worlds went into administration adn MS has Ruffian to continue the franchise its not happening. Hey man I wish Realtime made crackdonw 2 as well. Maybe they wouldnt be in administraion and CD2 might not of sucked so hard...
bigevilworldwide  +   1662d ago
Original development team doesn't even exist anymore after the huge joke that was APB.
bigevilworldwide  +   1662d ago
You cant have someone make something that isn't in business anymore. SEE APB.
Sevir04  +   1662d ago
2 things give the game to sucker punch so they can make it a ps3 exclusive or give the game to rockstar SD or north, because the engine for red dead redemption is beast! besides, that engine is better optimized for 360 anyway.
EVO-OM3GA  +   1662d ago
Really what rock do you all keep crawling from under, sucker punch made a good game I agree but even infamous had certain elements that were bad
gypsygib  +   1662d ago
Actually give the game a proper budget - Crackdown 2 was a joke at full price, the game's worth 20 - 30 bucks at most. As far as open world games go, it's severely lacking.

Mikelarry  +   1662d ago
Make actual improvements from the previous game before calling it a sequel crackdown 2 was a waste of resources the new guys should all be jobless for ruining such a game. im sorry if i sound burned but crackdown -2 was that bad.the first was an improvement to the pile of utter ish called crackdown 2.

@ gypsy ur too kind for giving it 6/10 i give crack 2 3.5/10

If its made by the same Devs it will stink
bigevilworldwide  +   1662d ago
That's also assuming there are any intentions of making a 3rd on after the money they lost on the 2nd, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a 3rd game when they couldn't give copies of 2 away.I think it's safe to say that crackdown is dead and gone, If I were MS I wouldn't waste anymore money paying anyone to make a 3rd game to an already mediocre series.Well no the first was mediocre the 2nd was just straight garbage

I don't think you'll be working for the Agency next time, so a lot should change.
