Crackdown



Breakdown:

"It's time to clean up the scum, Peace-Keeper!"
This is Crackdown.
Take everything you know about the award winning Grand Theft Auto franchise, and flip it 180. In Crackdown, you are a special agent attempting to rid the city of gangs, one boss at a time. This is still set in the do as you please, anarchy filled world similar to GTA; but now futuristic advancements - particularly within your attire - are also at your disposal. Use special agility to defy the odds of gravity, or super human strength to use anything from a dumpster to a car as a weapon! This unique aspect of the game made the overall experience enjoyable, but it just cannot compare to the vast array of missions that any GTA game offers. Fun playthrough, but nothing groundbreaking. Also, the game can become quite repetetive with almost all missions coming from assassination attempts at gang leaders. On top of that, only three gangs reside in Pacific City, and all operate similarly. All in all, this is a game that you can have an enormous amount of fun with, and then simply forget all about it in the morning. This is one of those games you see three years later, and just mildly shrug.

  1. Played this quite a bit actually, it's funny how something 4 years old is already considered a "classic". The advancement of video games has been great to watch.
