Do you like collecting in a video game? If you do, there's a lot of stuff for you to do. If not, avoid this game at all costs.
actually liked the original Crackdown more then this, I felt the variety in gangs as well as the boss battles was better. Also the fact the cars got better with your skill was cool in part 1. However the game wassn't terrible. The wingsuit was a nice add for this game but I cant think of much else that wowed me. Glad I didn't buy this game.
When I first played this game it reminded me of the first Crackdown with a few changes. Instead of challenging you with hunting down crime bosses and fighting them in ways relevant to your skills, you will be fighting only two groups this time around: zombies and terrorists. The weapon choices are fun as you combine multiple weapons for different effects as you jump into a horde of zombies and watch them explode and dissolve into the wind. The vehicles from the first game are back along with the addition of a buggy with a turret attachment and a tank. The driving can be overlooked, though, as you jump through Pacific City, leaping up the tall building and fall back to earth, landing on a terrorist vehicle to soften your landing. And the story, the little of which exists, is not even worth remembering it was ever there.
Overall the scores go as follows:
The game is a disappointment to anyone who has not played Crackdown before but fans of the first game will find some joy in seeing all of the old locations from the first game and hunting the new Renegade Orbs across the rooftops or through the streets packed with undead foes.
