Default Crackdown Appreciation Thread

Ok.So a week ago I purchased my Xbox 360 and with it I got Halo 3,Call of Duty 3 and Crackdown. Now I've finished Halo and Call of Duty is an awesome online MP but I'd never heard of Crackdown....

Well all I can say is WOW...I absolutely love this game...its amazing...jumping clean over roof tops or picking up cars whilst the gangs are still inside or driving the agency supercar and flipping others whilst you drive....the game is just genius and an awesome idea....

Just wondered if anyone else enjoyed this game too?If so then show your appreciation....

GTA SA...isnt that where you have to go to the gym and stuff to level up your character?

if so i found that one to be very frustrating....it took too much....you couldnt just jump into the action like you can with Crackdown

Excellent choice. Crackdown is easily up there with Bioshock and Halo 3 as one of the best games on the platform. It's easily the best freeroaming game of this generation (and will stay that way until GTA4 comes out) and I really wish it wasn't so overlooked.

I'm a Crackdown whore. If Mentok and THWIP* ever come around here, they'll tell you how awesome it is too.

"Keys to the City" made it the best game ever, and is the best DLC for a 360 game yet, as far as I'm concerned.

Opens up all sorts of codes and lets you restart the campaign. It's free, too.

When the demo came out, I was so addicted to it. The real game is even better, too.

with quite a few of the honchos that i had to kill i went around the fact that they had 6 or 7 lives.One of them i ran over tehn reversed and he died straight away and another one i pushed him off a balcony and he broke his neck.saved alot of ammo and time lol...im always trying to find shortcuts to killing the main guys

Here's a memoir from one of the Leads from game development. Very informative. A good read whether you're a Crackdown fan or just interested in game behind-the-scenes stuff.

Crackdown is a great game, with a good twist at the end that you donīt expect.
With that ending, you can make a great sequel...if MS and RTG make it one day.
