"If you’ve never played the original Crackdown, then Crackdown 2 is definitely worth a look. If on the other hand you’re a Crackdown veteran, you may well feel somewhat underwhelmed by Ruffian’s efforts, particular when it comes the game’s superficial single player experience. It’s by no means a bad game and its multiplayer merits should be enough to hook you. It’s just such a shame that it doesn’t really offer anything that the original Crackdown hadn't already given us three years ago."
