Preview:Crackdown

Is the sky the limit in this urban warfare sim from the creator of GTA?

Saints Row might be the loudest punk on the block, and Just Cause may well be the biggest. But of all GTA's crown-stealing sandbox-style offspring, Crackdown is the tallest. Half-a-mile tall at its highest point - and everything you can see can be scaled by foot.

Beginning life as a standard secret agent working for crime-stoppers the Agency, you'll soon find that times are hard - crime is so rife that you can't walk around a corner without gangs shooting at you. Three gangs run the city; the Volk, Los Muertos and the Shai-Gen Corporation. Each has seven bosses that you'll need to take down to get at their lead kingpin - that's 24 big bads all told.

Gamingsince198155d ago

I saw it was free and it still seemed over priced for what it was and didn't bother adding it to my library

RiseNShine55d ago

let the lesson be learnt, any more woke crap games will be sent to die, even more if they destroy a well loved franchise.

Contrary to your arbitrary argument, this game didn't fail due to "wokeness" lol.

All I remember from this was I saw the news about how you can't make a well endowed female character and most of the settings don't help much with the female face. However they thought it was completely fine to let you make your character a toilet and went to great legnths to get it added. But yeah a dolled up female was out of the question.

Attractive females are offensive in current year.

They are tracking 3.2M PS5 players. They say the Saints Row's PS Plus debut player count fell 23.64% short of the Battlefield 2042 PS Plus debut.

shinoff2183165d ago

I downloaded it to try but I was never much of a Saint row fan to begin with. If they re released the older ones I'd probably try them to.

jeromeface165d ago

its sad we live in an time where people seek out retro software vs playing whats fresh and new

shinoff2183165d ago

Jeromeface that's funny as shit. I've complained tremendously about ff16 and you know what I get told

If you want turn based go play the older ones.

Anyway I play new shit all the time. Had a blast with star ocean 6, tails of arise, ys newest games. But I can do both. Play retro and new stuff. Sad thing is alot of new stuff I find whack atleast alot of the aaa games , I'm not a huge fan of shooters,online games, online shooters and gatcha games and that's alot of the shit shoveled out.

There's still plenty of dope stuff coming out though

Baldurs gate looks good
Yakuza
Ys
Got a dragon quest some year
As much as I bitch about cyberpunk I'm looking forward to that dlc(hope it ain't broke)

It's refreshing to have a mix.

@jeromeface

Um, that’s because the stuff from the SNES to PS3 era were way better than what we have now.

Publishers/Devs were willing to take risks and it wasn’t all about GaaS or monetization. Games felt like they were made with passion and not afraid to try things. Yea we started the whole DLC trend in 7th gen, but the most a season pass cost back then was $15.

The industry has really shifted and the whole trying to translate the mobile game model to consoles and all this talk about games being too expensive to make like a Baldur’s Gate 3 is depressing.

shinoff2183164d ago

Crimson looks like it's just me and you on that one. Alot of these most be people under 25 or something

I really liked 3, although part 4 tried to be a superhero game and it was just dumb as shit.
This game is also dumb as shit as the writing is peak poor, there are no jokes that I'm aware of as I never laughed once, and it's glitchy and disorganized AF. The story makes no sense, as it's typical campy "Oh hey we're doing crazy things like killing people etc." but everyone is somehow super chill about the mass murder as if it's nothing. This is common theme amongst today's trash woke writers.

Vengeance1138165d ago

Everyone downloading to see for themselves just how garbage the game actually is, then they'll play a few hours and delete forever lol

dumahim165d ago

I add everything to the library, but I'll never get to it. My Plus sub ends in Dec.

ravens52165d ago

Me too lol. Black Friday is the only chance of me renewing. But I have all the games from when ps5 came out. Soooooo many ps4 games and a bunch of ps3 ps+ games. All soon to be gone cause fuck that $80. I'll just buy what games I want.

InUrFoxHole165d ago

That's one of the best features. Adding to library without having to download it

This is what most people do to even good games, including gamepass. Kind of funny when you think about it.

They're tracking just the ones who downloaded it not kept playing. These are people seeing if it's good.
How about report numbers of people who kept playing.

Saints row reboot was an embarrassment to the franchise and it killed the developer.

Elda165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

I played the entire game of SR & for me the gameplay experience wasn't bad especially for a PS+ game.
