Crackdown 2 Review - Xbox Evolved

Xbox Evolved:

"The original Crackdown was a bit of a conundrum for me. It was very much a pure sandbox title (one of my favorite genres I might add) that featured solid free roaming, decent player progression, co-op, good mix of artillery at your disposal, morphing cars, side challenges and a lot of stuff that you could blow up. The cell shading was also a nice touch and made the title stand aside from the rest. However, its story was lacking to the point that it was virtually on life support, had inconsistent jumping and grabbing mechanics that often times would either lead to your accidental suicide jump or just re-climbing up something that took way too damn long to do in the first place and was incredibly repetitive.

I didn't have the highest hopes for this game, but I don't think it was meant to be a AAA title. It's like saying "Ouch, Madden 2010 didn't get a great score". Well no duh. Madden is an average franchise.

Figured as much. Not sure what's up with them other 8s and 9s out of 10 though - pass me the Microsoft marijuana please!

Yeah I didn't get those scores much either. Crackdown was fun but never 8-9/10 fun. Just an average game priced at an above-average MSRP.

They recycled a lot of material from CD1 into CD2 and I doubt it took them even 12 months to make this title.

BubblesDAVERAGE3958d ago

I would agree to that consensus...the lack there of a story

AridSpider3958d ago

Yeah - so not picking this up at full price anymore.

JasonXE3958d ago

why did you even plan to lmao?

Halochampian3958d ago

I am getting it. Cant wait to play it either. Your question is very ignorant.

I loved the first one. And really enjoyed the 2nd demo. Add in some coop.. and i see myself putting a lot of hours into this game

Dell has it for $39 right now.

Don't be suprised.. It's just Crackdown 1 all over again after all.
