While it is unclear at this time whether its a glitch or intentional. Crackdown, and Crackdown 2 are now free for download on the Xbox store.
2 of the weakest graphical games
Oh come on man, Out of all the games under M$.....really
Free is free. They could have done nothing and no one would have said anything. So what’s the problem again?
Sometimes it's better to do nothing, like in this case. Or are they buttering people up for an xsx version of Crackdown 3? Re-Cracked perhaps?
So let me get this straight, you think they are wrong for giving out free games to gamers?Do they force you to download the game? Are the free games expired after a set amount of time? Do they force people to buy an SX version of the game if it comes out? You know I have seen many stupid comments over the year on this site, and yours is nearly on the top of that list, no offense.
No they're not wrong - have at it. Just not a very worthwhile gesture. The games are old, average at best going by people's comments. Have a crack mate, don't hold back - you couldn't upset or offend me if you tried. And if you didn't pick up, the second part of my comment was in jest. But you lit are very defensive about ms and their pro-consumer attitude these days. Lighten up champ - gonna be a long gen ahead haha
Crackdown 1 was always free.
Yeah this, grabbed it like two years ago. Wish there was a way to play the X-enhanced version on PC
Stay at home initiative? Not everyone has Gamepass.
Crackdown 1 was a *great* game.
How are these games?
Crackdown 1 was fun 13 years ago. Somewhat still fun today Crackdown 2 sucks. Crackdown 3 is like Crackdown 1, but with better graphics. Play Crackdown 3. It’s a fun weekend game.
Crackdown 3 shouldv never existed. Of all the games microsoft couldve poured money into making they chose this. Simply as a marketing game to show off their 'cloud' tech. Sure wasnt made for xbox fans but they tried to shove it down our throats for 5 years regardless. No thanks.
agreed. crackdown 3 was a fun quick romp
@DARK_WOLF: CD3 exists as an attempt to showcase a version of cloud supported gaming. That said version fell apart is besides the point.
I wish they would have just done a Crackdown 1 remake with extras instead of Crackdown 3. All those years wasted on a game that for me felt like anything but crack down.
These games has always been free.
Crackdown 2 is still region locked though.
Two crap games for free, thanks microsoft.
Crackdown wasn't crap, it was fairly short but highly addictive with fun gameplay.
But, are they free, or are they "free" as in "have to have BL Gold" or some other sub service?
When I downloaded these titles for free about two years ago, they were free free. No subscription or credit card required as I’ve never been a Microsoft subscriber. I was also able to download Too Human for free iirc
Oh bro, too human was a waste of potential. Microsoft should really look into that game again. Man a lot of games had so much miss potentials. Like lair for the ps3.
i loved Too Human. Really wish they could continue the story
You keep xbox360 titles if you "buy" them for free. The Shop system of the xb360 does not support subcription-based access (just prices). So if you no longer have the Gold subscription, you can still play your xb360 games you've got with the subscription.
The point is that because many main Xbox titles are online multiplayer, and a paid sub is required for multi, a paid sub is required by default. Even if CD1 & 2 have single player modes, you wont get the most "value" out of them without online, and that means a paid sub. I mean, are you honestly going to play an early version of COD just for the SP?
@Godmars290 That was not the point of the question if you can keep those games after your subscription. Yes, multiplayergames are still multiplayergames and need a sub to really play them. But single-player mode still runs. funny thing that someone just answering a question with a fact still gets a downvote.
U need a credit card 😂
Had cd1 but never played cd2 so I picked it up thanks. I heard cd2 was awful though.
They've been free for a long time...
These are both amazing games. I'll never understand the hate they get. Crackdown 3? Sure, sucks, but these 2 were action packed gold.
