Why You Should Care: Crackdown (and Crackdown 2)

Casey White : "I remember there was a period in my life that I thought collecting objects was stupid. It seemed like a pointless waste of time, and lazy game design on the part of the creators who were trying to stretch out thin games by offering ‘collect-a-quests.’ Medals, bug-hunts, artifacts, coins, whatever you wanted to call it… If your game was one that featured that kind of content, back in the day, then it was a game I had no interest in playing. That was until Crackdown. When the original Crackdown launched, I was cautiously optimistic. The idea of throwing around cars and leaping from roof to roof excited me… but the idea of having to collect orbs seemed like the single laziest excuse for a collectable side-quest of any game I’d played to date." (Crackdown, Crackdown 2, Ruffian Games, Xbox 360)

As a proud owner of Crackdown and Crackdown 2, I must say, this was an EXCELLENT read. The game is extremely underrated. I think the success of Crackdown only came because of its ties to Halo 3. If it weren't for that, so many copies would of not been sold.

Crackdown is a mixture of a toned-down Grand Theft Auto and a little bit of Halo. If you are a fan of either one, then Crackdown is definitely your kinda game.

I love the original Crackdown, still play it every now and then, it's so addictive! Defiantly underrated.

Shame about Crackdown 2 though

Yeah I only had to play the demo to know it wasn't going to be as good as the original. It is a shame because it could have been so much more.

All hail Prototype, the new Crackdown.
