So much like the first game, I got tired and sent it back after about 6 hours into it. I own the first game. Why do I need to play such a similar game?

There are some new features added, but they aren't game altering changes. Just some new toys. The infected that come out after nightfall are, I think, very annoying.

I was disappointed that the story in the second one barely picked up on anything sinister suggested by the first ending. Actually, now that I think about it... the first game could have almost never happened at all and it wouldn't matter. I remember when I finished the first Crackdown thinking, "oh cool. Hope they do a sequel now to continue where this is going..." Well, the sequel is here... where's the hinted at story arc?

Overall, I gave this game a "good" rating of 7. If one has never played the first Crackdown, this one is certainly worth spending some time with. It's fun and collecting the orbs can be very addictive. If you've already played the first, there's not that much new to see here.

Played Crackdown? Then you've experienced 90% of what Crackdown 2 has to offer. Crackdown 2 adds different weapons and vehicles, mutated humans, helicopters, a gliding suit, and orbs that you actually have to chase. Looks and feels the same otherwise. The new content in the sequel makes sense as a $15 expansion for Crackdown 1 but not as a $60 game. Good thing I didn't buy this. It's fun, but a rip-off in terms of content. Gamefly has saved me SOOO much money.

Well the story mode of this game to me seems to be alright I beat it and all but i was not completely satisfied with the game.
I Liked Crackdown More then I Liked this one that's for sure.
