In Crackdown's world you play Tag with rockets--because touch-tag is for pansies.
Given how long ago the original one came out, it's a crime that the developer didn't make a brand new engine to power this game. It looks dated as hell, and some of those animations are straight up terrible.
Does not matter to me if it is fun to play.
Don't you know? "fun" doesn't matter with games anymore -_-. It's all about teh grafix! Only people who will probably not care about the visuals are the same fans that played the first game. I personally can't wait to play it. Graphics never came up as a concern to me with this game.
that's all ps3 fanboys care about, the technical aspects of games now. I'll be enjoying Cradkown 2 this July however. Can't wait to reek four player co-op havoc! Judging from the first two user comments, I'm not surprised its coming from them.
Couldn't agree more Blaze it's a shame that a lot of gamers today seem to only care about graphics if it doesn't have amazing graphics then they just say its a crappy game. Plus it's not like it looks crappy it just has a unique art style the graphics look good for an open world game. What about a game being fun which is why people play video games to begin with right. Anyways the first one was good it had it's problems but it was so much fun but the developer Ruffian seems to be fixing everything that was wrong with the first one.
I can't wait for this one. I think it has a pretty unique art style that keeps it distinct.
I'm not concerned with how it looks, it's how it plays that concerns me. Lock-on competitive multiplayer; may as well let the game play itself. The campaign better be longer this time or I'm not buying. I gave into the first one because of the Halo 3 beta, but not this time.
All you guys above where ALL talking crap about MAGs graphics. Didn't care if it was fun with unprecedented new gameplay even though graphically it's the same or better than BFBC2 & MW2 online graphics. But you now see a game that looks and plays essentially like a $9.99 downloadable game and all of a sudden it's about "fun" cause no other game is "fun" uh? I'm sorry, but if I bought what they just showed for 60bucks, that would make me a sucker that knows little to nothing about gaming.
To sum up Chubear's post, he's just here to complain about this game because he's bitter about mag getting ragged on.
the developer of crackdown1 is making APB
Did Crackdown always look this boring? I know there are lots of explosions in this gameplay video but its not really.. looking like fun. Oh and at this comment about PS3 fanboys only caring about the technical terms and not the gameplay. You know why that is so? Because the gameplay is always given for a PS3 Exclusive. Thats why.
"The campaign better be longer this time or I'm not buying." Lets hope it's longer than God of War 3 at least. I'm kidding. Who gives a sh*t if the game is great, right? Your comment is just pure trollage.
Fangblade...the term dense comes to mind when I see your comments. Back on topic: You're not going to get characters as detailed as the ones in Gears or Uncharted jumping around like that with those explosions and everything else. It just isn't going to happen. Of course the devs could have went for more realistic graphics but the fun game play would have took a HUGE hit. Seriously...this should be common sense.
If you played the original Crackdown this looks like they are trying to surpass what made the original so great. If you haven't the original played Crackdown you missed out on a over the top crazy fun game. @ Chubear MAG tries to set itself up as this realistic "large-warfare-scale-256p player shooter" but for me when you compare it to MW2 and BBC2 even with less players they are alot more fun than MAG. Crackdown isn't hyped but either way its only billed as a open-world "go-blow-shiii-up game", it succeeds at that very, very well and compared to anything else in its genre like say Prototype its still on top, but Prototype was a decent game though. JOY
Haha the video was hilarious , I remember how much fun Crackdown 1 was online. and at the guy above CD was never about graphics. the game multiplayer is so huge People saw pass that. can't wait for this one.
HA! I want it now! Is split-screen confirmed for this title?
"Is split-screen confirmed for this title?" I hope so.
Graphics are terrible, does anyone know the budget for this game?
That would explain the horrendous graphics. I mean seriously, it looks like Red Steel 2 at a slightly lower framerate.
Also what's up with the framerate?
not really that impressed..
:O I want to play it now.
Looks alot like Crackdown 1 with Multiplayer. Also, the environment looked bland as hell.
Are they using the Perfect Dark Zero engine?
I already played this years ago. It`s called Tribes, and it`s way better then this. You might as well just go play Tribes Ariel Assault for PS2.
LOOK AT THAT! That thing looks and plays like a $9.99 downloadable title and the 360 fans "can't wait" for this?!... but they dogg on Heavy Rain, KZ2, MGS4 & Infamous? Look, if you're a PS3 gamer and actually listen to 360fans talk any negative FUD about PS3 games, you're just a damned fool cause these guys wouldn't know quality gaming if it stuck them in the butt. All the want is for MS to win; no matter how lame and mediocre the experiences you get on the 360 they'll hail it as UBER! COME ON, LOOK AT THAT THING! Really? that's a hot highly anticipated exclusive title for 60bucks?! that thing shouldn't be called crack down2, it should be called Ass Crack2 cause that's what it looks like - Ass Crack.
That`s the first thing that came to mind when I saw this. Tribes for PS2, and I agree, I gave it way too much credit. Tribes has big open landscapes, vehicular warfare and fast paced ariel combat with massive scope. It looks amazing...for a 800MP XBLA game, but the fact that bots have been beefing up their pathetic lineup with this garbage is laughable.
That game is not impressive at all, being that its a major exclusive for the 360. But what can you expect in 360 land. They wouldn't know quality if it slapped them in the face. I mean this sh!t looks like a spruced up Crash Commandos, except Crash Commandos is more of a bargain. I wont pay 60 for this. Maybe 20. Maybe.
didn't know they still made games for the PS2.
to try to justify this game but the fact is i played and beat ths first cd game and even though it was a lil repetitive it was ight.now that i got that out the way the fact that thier tryin to pass this game as a sequal is beyond me.i mean realy the graphics are a damn step backwards and the game play looks extremly repetitive and looks to get boring pretty fast.anyways im not the type to let that stop me from at least tryin it for myself
What the hell does "ight" mean? Time to learn some Vocabulary and develop some Grammar skills.
uh oh looks like crackdown halo
I bet the same idiots who said GOW3 looks like GOW2.5 will be saying how "amazing" this crap game looks. I would of sworn this was a xbox 1 game if M$ didn't cut off support for that console years ago.
but the 4 player co op modes with freinds are where its at. i love borderland for that and i bought all the dlc so far and its worth it if you have at least 3 freinds to play it with. it will be the same with crackdown2 for me. fun with freinds. i never played the first crackdown by my self. and with this one ill be orb hunting with 3 freinds while hurling innocent by-standers, trucks and tanks at them from on top of a chicken shop. co op crackdown ftw and for some great memories its gonna create between freinds.All this n4g negativity just because the game dont look like crysis? i pity you guys.maybe you got no freinds.....?? my lunch brake is almost over...konichiwa b*tches.
