One Bullet Down

Scratch Crackdown 2 off yesterday’s list.

I spent an hour with the demo and did not have fun. It may have just been a bad demo, the game may actually be just as great as the first one, but I’m not planning to order it until I see what some other gamer-friends think of it.

The demo really felt like they gave you a beginning of the game character and dropped you into the middle of the game.

  1. I’m… sorry to hear that. Crackdown was a really fun game; if I ever get around to playing the second game, I hope that my experience is relevantly different from yours.

    A lot of people have been really excited about this game and I can’t figure out why. I don’t remember too many people loving the first game, so where is all the love coming from?

      I didn’t pick up a 360 until about two years after it launched, so I don’t remember what kind of reception the game got. As I recall, I picked it up because my cousin recommended it.

    I thought that they didn’t intruduce anything different from the first game. It looked about the same, the aiming and weapons weren’t any different and their choice of scenarios was very lacking especially if they have new innovative game play they want to show off.

    I had this on a maybe list but I’m not even sure I’d get it once it goes down in price next year.

      The reviews that have started popping up are echoing your impressions as well. I didn’t play the demo very far, but the only new thing I noticed was the mechanic where you secure strategic points around the city and that’s not enough to warrant a new game purchase. Disappointing but at least that saves me money and keeps me from adding another game to my gaming backlog.
