  • Summary: Crackdown, or Riot Act as it is called in Japan, mixes GTA-style “sandbox” gameplay with special abilities you’d usually only find in a Marvel superhero to create a game that actually stands out among the increasing number of GTA wannabes.

Poker Smash Review

11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: In another twist to the usual puzzle formula, the game regularly adds bonus challenges in the form of specific hands that the player can try to match within a set time limit. There’s no penalty for failing these challenges, but every time you score a match, you land a nice little stash of chips and...

Crackdown review (X360)

HonestGamers
21 December 2007
  • Excerpt: A lot of hype has been slapped upon non-linear sandbox-games as of late, but any disconcerting player can see through all the buzzwords and deduce that all your Deux Ex 's, your Lost Cause 's and your Knights of the Old Republic 's walk you towards a set destination – they just offer differing and...

  • Excerpt: It does give the game a wash, rinse, repeat feel since you do the same thing on each island. But as you progress through the different islands, the gangs become tougher as their weapons improve and their total numbers grow.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: There are a lot of good games on the Xbox 360 but there are few that are as genuinely fun to play as Crackdown. The feeling you get from soaring higher and higher into the air as your character develops is intoxicating, and I actually found myself regarding the real world in new ways.

Crackdown

ActionTrip

  • Conclusion: Overall Crackdown is a cool concept. If you really want to challenge yourself, then there is a lot more you can do but for most of us, the fun will end when the last boss falls to the ground. However, I believe it stands on it own. Even without the H3 beta thrown in.
  • Pros: Leveling up abilities is addictive while it last. Open-ended game play is really open. Halo 3 beta. Co-op can be really fun. Blowing stuff up and hurling cars.
  • Cons: Not much extra content that "means" anything. Open-ended might be too open. Lack of progressive story-line might put some people off.

  • Excerpt: Not every game lets you make a perfectly accurate sniper shot to center of mass while in a 300-foot freefall. Nor do most games let you pick up a city bus, jump while carrying it up to a nearby roof, then make a kamikaze throw-bus-while-diving-off move.

Auracore MediaWorks
20 February 2007
  • Summary: Enough fun and addiction to warrant an intervention.
  • Pros: 500 green orbs and 300 "hidden" orbs to find; lots of leveling to do; addictive gameplay; rewards exploration and cunning; great graphical style; vast, expansive city to jump around in; controls are spot-on.
  • Cons: No real main character (not that it matters); no story (ditto); repetitive; no multiplayer modes besides co-op; vehicles don't control as well as expected; once you've maxed out your character, the fun takes a dive.

  • Pros: So much to do, so much to see, solid as a rock game engine
  • Cons: Wont last too long if you rush it, not much landscape variety, erm…
