Yeah, I've heard nothing but "same old same old" comments about this one. Only positive review was from someone who hadn't played the first game.

@ above
don't be in denial
the first one was better

and i like how you only show the ones that are 8 and above when there is a lot of reviews out there that gave this game a much lower score

NYC_Gamer3027d ago

Hmm....but this game has way more reviews with lower scores

HolyOrangeCows3027d ago

LOL, the highest scores of course come from the tool sites Planet Xbox 360 and XboxAddict.

ChronoJoe3027d ago

Lol the fact that the reviews are so different, suggests a predisposition before writing the reviews.

Maybe this is due to bias, to the franchise/console. Or maybe it's because they were offered incentive to put out the higher review scores. Either way, I know there's no real incentive to give it a low score... so considering that, it's definitely ones like PlanetXBOX360 which had an alterior motive, aside quality critical journalism - when writing that review.

Good reviewers, come to the same conclusions. The definition of a 'good game' should be the same from ever reviewer, if that's not the case then they should not be categorised together.

hybridtheory123027d ago

of course planet XBOX gives it a 9...srsly..

Spenok3027d ago

With a Metacritic average score of:

Crackdown 2 = 71.

Which is sad seeing as how the first ones metascore is at 83. I enjoyed playing the first. After seeing these scores though i am disapointed.

It's very similar to the first, but I enjoyed the first Crackdown. Aren't all COD games the same? They're all extremely similar, how about Madden? Same gameplay, same teams, same whatever. Point is, more of the same isn't necessarily bad.

Its built on an outdated engine. They dropped the ball with this one and filled it with cannon fodder and brainles repetition. shame really. What did they expect without anything new and innovating.

emil13027d ago

poor soda popinsky. he can't accept that crackdown 2 is a flop

Kick-Ass3027d ago

the game was actually enjoyable. I finished the game yesterday. I maxed out my agility and my strength. I went through alot of freaks. Its a great game to play with your friends. Watch the video after the credits. It makes you think

cmrbe3027d ago

that x360 fans have been harping about falls flat on its face but thats alright. You guys keep on living in denial.

dizzleK3027d ago

November 9 20043027d ago
