Crackdown 3 Multiplayer Review - IGN

Crackdown 3's Wrecking Zone is a barebones and uninspired multiplayer mode that makes poor use of its impressive environmental destruction

Wow. IGN does not like this game at all. One would think all the cloud destruction whatever would have brought something to the table. Apparently not.

UnSelf1025d ago

LMFAO. Should i continue my tirade from the last IGN CD3 post i left on N4G? Nah.

Marioraider181025d ago

Multiplayer did worse than single player lmfao

UnSelf1025d ago

Its really unbelievable lmao. I was looking forward to this game so much. Oh well. Question - does Xbox Live still work on the 360? Does anybody know. I want to play online with a friend but idk if the online works on it anymore

Concertoine1025d ago

Yeah it still works. Actually played Crackdown 1 with my friend a few weeks ago, still some fun to be had.

starchild1025d ago

Not to knock anybody who is looking forward to this but I never thought it looked good. I assumed it would score somewhere around a 7, but it's just not my cup of tea anyway. These IGN scores are even lower than I expected. If Microsoft isn't taking all the reception of their past few games seriously and making clear plans to do better in the future they're lost.

ABizzel11025d ago

The 4s and 5s are a bit extreme. The game is functional, and playable through and through. The problem with the game is it looks like it should have been an HD remaster in 2013 - 2014 when the XBO first launched, and plays like a Xbox Original / early 360 game. The developer is stuck in 2006.

bouzebbal1025d ago

This game really cracks me down everytime I hear about it 😂😂😂

UltraNova1024d ago

I'm left observing into... obscurity

what doesn't destruction have to do with game being good? Da Power of Cloud was just for PR

Tell you what. . The words 'gamepass' and 'fun' will be rinsed and repeated by Xbox heads for a while. The pattern is clear

Razzer1025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

Having put several hours into the game, I would say the Crackdown 3 campaign is a good, not great game. I'd give it a 7. The idea. The point I think to take from all this is that local hardware beats cloud bullshit. The cloud nonsense needs a ton of work. Looking at you, Phil Spencer.

Jin_Sakai1025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

Another mediocre Xbox exclusive to add to the list. But that’s ok it’s on Gamepass. /s

“You can see everything Wrecking Zone has to offer in about 30 minutes, minus the time you’re going to spend matchmaking after every round. Unless a lot changes, Wrecking Zone just isn’t worth the time it takes.“

AmUnRa1025d ago

You forget one thing, its on gamepass but but its fun to play.😉

NarutoFox1025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

I don't like the game either. I mean it took them 5 years to make this $hit? Just play the first game which is better. They should have remastered the first game.

Profchaos1025d ago

Destruction in single player has been completely absent i have spent a few hours trying to blow at least fragments off of a wall and absolutely nothing barely any bullet marks and not even a scratch after grenades extremely disappointing

notachance1025d ago

I thought people would've realized by now that "cloud power" is just PR catchphrase meant to counter base XB1's lack of power compared to base PS4, see how many future title boasting about it now that they have XB1X? exactly.

just like "we won't show games early ever again" is just PR bullshit to cover their lack of games in development, now that they bought lots of studios expect the hypocrites to celebrate all those new announcements with indefinite release date next E3.

russo1211025d ago


I don't think MS will have an easy pass next generation, i really don't. Unfortunately their game creative departments don't follow their PR counterparts.

Orionsangel1025d ago

It's not just IGN. A lot of critics aren't liking this game. It just doesn't bring anything new to the table. It feels outdated from the get go.

Muzikguy1024d ago

Wow and people were making it sound as if the bad SP review was bad but it would be ok since it's not the MP. Apparently multiplayer is just as bad according to IGN. Known to slant towards MS too. Well I'm glad that cat is finally out.of the bag. I was saying all along that this game wouldn't live up to the hype and the cloud talk was a PR stunt

So a 4.5 average overall? You know a game is bad when you have to look again at the out of value to check whether it is from a 5 or 10

PowerOfTheCloud1025d ago

The funny thing is. People still defend this turd now. But wait until they halluzinate downgraded eyebrows in the next sony exclusive, they will do their utmost to spread the message that the game isn't worth it, lol

ShadowWolf7121025d ago

They already are with Days Gone.

Muzikguy1024d ago

Sony exclusives have been shining like no other this gen and still get slammed by Xbox crowd. They waited for this game and others like the savior and each one passes with a whimper. Now all will be free on game Pass. Not saying much doesn't future development of AAA games. That's what they want though I guess. More subscriptions 🤷🏼‍♂️

aconnellan1024d ago

I don’t see anyone defending it, not even on the XboxOne subreddit. People really don’t like this game

Markusb331024d ago

Yes yes they do and when greenberg has to promote a review from a corp slave youtuber like colt Eastwood there is a major problem.
Kid smooth also can't see any flaws or problems with this game. Mental health issues are real.

oasdada1024d ago

There are a lottt of comments on ign websitw like "Ign is biased, im olayinf the game and its a lot if fun if ur fan of the 1st one " hoooly cow god forbids if MS ever made a decent game then these morons would demand an 11 or 12/10. Stupid Opinion is one thing but dayum.dude the blind defending of this trash is beyond me..

Ubisoft: We hold the record for the biggest downgrade ever
Microsoft: Hold my beer

Thanks for posting this.

The_Sage1025d ago

"20 TIMES THE POWER OF XBOX ONE." The woman in the beginning of the video actually says that.

Muzikguy1024d ago

LOL! Reminds me a lot of our politics right now. How quick people are to forget. It's almost like a that finger pointing at Sony was forgotten with Killzone. I never knew this interview existed because I wasn't interested in the game but how could anyone back this afternoon such a downgrade. This is the worst I've ever seen. In any game. Even Watch Dogs and that's my disappointment of the generation.

Yui_Suzumiya1025d ago

Tell me about it.. I still can't believe after all the years of development that this was the best we got.. I thought it would at least be mediocre but not terrible

Cmv381025d ago

Even ign can't cover for the mess that is this game. But many will blow it off because of game pass.... and that's the issue with game pass.

It certainly is the issue with Game Pass. Hopefully people will come to realize this but I fear they won't. No big deal when there are other platforms out there. Just think about those people though saying crap on Nintendo kids games or indies and how that's what most games will be on game pass. They're not happy with them but charge a sub and don't give them a choice now they're happy about it 🤷🏼‍♂️

I've been against Game Pass for this reason mostly. Quality will suffer

chiefJohn1171024d ago (Edited 1024d ago )

Do you pull stuff out your rear you do you find it somewhere? Lol you're blaming Gamepass for CD3s quality? 😆 Newsflash CD3 was in development long before Gamepass and was supposed to release before Gamepass was a thing. Forza h4 says hello

Muzikguy1024d ago (Edited 1024d ago )


You'll see, but I'm not blaming game pass for the quality of crackdown 3. Don't construe what I said. They just happen to be connected by coincidence since MS put it on game pass

chiefJohn1171021d ago (Edited 1021d ago )

Halo 5, Hitman, Shadow of Mordor, Gears 4, Hellblade, sunset OD, Metro Redux, I could go on these aren't AA indie. These are top of line AAA titles. I was just countering your argument with the games you were complaining about. So renting games is throwing away money? Is going to the movies throwing money away since you don't own it? Most people play game and done with it after beating them. What's the difference between paying $60 then trading it away for $25 vs paying $1 for a month and beating it? Stop being in denial.

I wanna play CD3 but I don't wanna pay $60 what do you recommend? GAMEPASS OR REDBOX THAT ISH lol Ms can do what they want if I beat the game then MONTHS LATER!! They remove it why would I care?

Mortal Kombat X is on Gamepass I also happen to own it. I haven't played it in nearly a let's say it was on GP day 1 for 6 months and they removed it why would I gaf? I already beat it and moved on and no longer playing it. Stop being slow minded. Hell by the time they remove it and you get the urge to play the game again it'll be $10 at the store. Just saved you $49 you have no argument

Do your research cause you're severely misinformed

Muzikguy1021d ago (Edited 1021d ago )

You seem to be the one that misinformed. But like I said you will see. If you were a company making games would you rather sell millions at full price or go on GP for a flat rate? Imagine having a pool of hundreds vying for GP and having to split up a pool of money from subscribers. The wallets of potential customers is much larger than the pool of fees from GP subscribers. How I see it GP is only good for smaller devs and games. The bigger studios and games would demand more money or get shafted somehow. You saying you want to play something without buying it will be a common feeling among players and then the companies making the games will get less money so they'll make poorer games because GP won't be as lucrative. It's not denial.

Muzikguy1021d ago

Think of Netflix. Started as a subscription service for movies and was great but over time those companies left to make more money and Netflix in turn created their own stuff. Sure some may like it, but that's not what the service was for initially. Now people need multiple subscriptions to access the same content. I can see this happening with games

chiefJohn1171024d ago (Edited 1024d ago )

You make no sense, CD was in development long before Gamepass and what other games were cheap made? Sod2? Duh it's an indie game the first one was AA too. SOT? It was lacking Content but now a solid game. Forza h4? Do I really need to say anything?

I fail to see the issue, Gamepass is a blessing. How is it an issue that people didn't have to spend $60 to play a game apparently many didn't like? That's a good thing not a bad thing. You sound jealous tbh.

Muzikguy1022d ago (Edited 1022d ago )

You'll see. You named off 4 games half being "indie". How much did you doesn't on GP? Whatever it is then you got your one full game out of it and a bunch of AA and indies. And SoT. Plus you don't own them. You're throwing your money away IMO but that's ok. Just won't catch me doing it. You're at their mercy. I buy games I want and keep them forever. MS can take them off the service and you won't get it back. I guess people like being told what they can do again. I thought we were passed that. Let's say you're ok with it though and that's fine, but acting like those that see through it are crazy is nuts
