Crackdown - Completed
There seems to be a growing trend in my Xbox 360 games. Primarily they are all shooters, and Crackdown is just another addition. The initial concept of the game got me very excited. Instead of being a criminal or fending off an alien race, you get to be a super cop. Actually trying to do well by the people.
The story while not overly compelling gives you a sense of good and evil. When given your first mission do not expect to be a Batman type hero, this is much more like the Punisher. It all boils down to the fact that you kill a bunch of mobsters. Each mission has a dossier on the mobster in which you need to kill. Unlike other sandbox games this is the only mission type. The game became very repetitive due to this.
As far as controls going the game like every 360 game thus far were very well done. The camera could have used some work, but that has been a programming nightmare for years and I no longer expect it to be perfected.
The highlights of this game was kicking cars, jumping from rooftop to rooftop, and taking on 50 enemies and being victorious. This kept me entertained through the majority of the game.
As a side bonus I got the Halo 3 beta with the game.
The game is 6 out of 10 for me. While I did enjoy it, the game play was repetitive and the game play has very little lasting value.
