Pacific City is overridden; crime controls the streets. Three powerful gangs have taken the once-great metropolis hostage, and the police have proven powerless in their efforts to regain control. Only the Agency's deploying genetically enhanced agents of justice can provide citizens with some sense of hope. With an open-ended "sandbox" environment, players are free to explore the city and decide on the best tactics for each breathtaking scenario. Brace yourself. Justice is coming to Pacific City.

A next-gen visual and gameplay style
Crackdown pushes the action-driving hybrid genre into the next generation with the first ever truly 3-D playground. Gamers will level up their Agent's strength, agility, firearms, explosives, and driving skills while scaling the fully vertical world. Enforce justice by any means necessary in Pacific City, a crime-ridden urban center primed to explode and ready for you to explore. Enter an interactive world where anything can be used as a weapon as you clean up the streets the only way you know how. Your way. Developed by Scotland's Real Time Worlds exclusively for Microsoft Game Studios and the Xbox 360 console, Crackdown is the brainchild of Dave Jones, the creative genius behind many innovative game titles such as Grand Theft Auto and Lemmings.
Harnessing the amazing power of Xbox 360, Crackdown players enforce justice against the backdrop of a crime-ridden metropolis that is massive in scale and meticulous in detail. The game's unique presentation employs a highly stylized rendering technique that turns it into a living, breathing graphical novel. You play the role of an enforcer for the city's "Agency," a law enforcement entity looking to take back neighborhoods and lives from three large crime syndicates. You are part of the new generation of crime fighters- an entirely new breed of genetically superior super-cops, designed to use the enemies' tactics against them.
From the initial conception, Crackdown has been built to feature a dynamic and engaging co-op experience for double the action, carnage, and intensity. Never before has a game allowed two players to simultaneously explore and interact with an open-ended game environment. Will you work together to find new ways of detonating your impressive stash of explosives? Or will you race each other to the next batch of collectible ability orbs? The choice is always yours!
An impressive number of weapons and objects are also at your disposal. Low on ammo? Never a problem. Thanks to an amazing amount of props and a deep physics system, you can use whatever you get your hands on as a weapon: Trash cans, vehicles, even people. Set the scene for mass destruction with a game that remembers your actions better than you do. Gather vehicles to assemble barricades, build epic piles of explosives, push it to the limit. Crackdown can take it.
A sandbox full of opportunities
For the first time ever, every inch of an urban playground has been designed for you to explore and exploit. Use any route necessary as you take down the crime syndicates, going under, around, or through the environment however you choose. While previous "sandbox"-style titles have allowed you to merely walk or drive around the environment, Crackdown encourages players to find new routes to and from destinations. Often times, scaling a building or traveling beneath the surface will present new and unexpected challenges to the player- or provide an even more deadly option for the enemy.
Get the job done, no matter what it takes. Any strategy or tactic is acceptable, so long as you re-claim the streets. Unleash the awesome powers of your agent, developing his full genetic potential, becoming faster and stronger, learning bone-crushing moves, using outrageous weapons, and defying certain death at every turn.

It's Good over-the-top fun. If you like the earlier versions of GTA and GTA San Andreas, you'll probably like this. I understand the guy who developed this game also was the man behind Lemmings and the early GTA's. While not like GTA, it does introduce "abilities" to make exploration different than GTA. I recommend the title to anyone who just wants to have some good old fashion fun.
Final Note: Amazon was able to package both of my games in one shipment and they arrived sooner than the expected ship date. If you can qualify for the super savings on shipping by all means do it. Amazon is always AAA+ in that area.
But, just like Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, what little time you have in the game is incredibly worthwhile. Crackdown takes the groundwork placed by GTA and makes it about a hundred times more satisfying.
Unless you wanted an in depth story. Because you're not getting a detailed story, Agent. You don't have time for one! Gangs have taken over Pacific City, and you're the one who's going to change that. Now get out there and make daddy proud!
Gameplay: Crackdown is, as previously stated, very similar to Grand Theft Auto in terms of gameplay. However, in Crackdown, there is one huge difference: you have superpowers. Or, rather, you acquire superpowers as you use certain skills. For example, the more punching you do, the more strength experience you get. The more dudes you run over, the more driving experience you get. Get to 100 xp and your skill in a particular level increases, to a maximum of 4 stars. In the end, you will be able to leap from rooftop to rooftop, punt a sedan several blocks, and use the most high-tech vehicles available. It is a ton of fun just to mess around with your massive powers. Also, you can take gang weapons to a checkpoint and store them for later use; this can also be done with vehicles but only at the main base, not the various scattered checkpoints.
Story: The story is not the main focus of Crackdown. Basically all of it comes in the form of a long cut-scene at the beginning of the game that basically says, "Bad guys have taken over the 3 islands of Pacific City, destroy them." and off you go. Along the way, when you get close to a location of a gang lord, you will recieve intel updates to inform you of the situation. In Crackdown, there are 3 gangs: Los Muertos, The Volk, and Shai-Gen, each of which has control of one of Pacific City's 3 islands. Within each gang, there is the leader and their underlings. While you can go after the leader right away, it is advised that you take out the underlings first, which weakens the leader's lair as well as has an impact on the gang as a whole-for example, if you take out a recruitment officer, there will be less gangsters on the street. It is a pretty great feeling when you completely eliminate one of the gangs and the streets are perfectly clean.
Graphics: Crackdown is full cel-shaded, and this is a good thing. It serves to give the game a unique, comic book style. The game runs very well on the 360 without any framerate drops, except when you create a massive chain explosion.
Sound: No real music to speak of other than when you're in a vehicle the radio will play various tracks.
CONCLUSION: Basically, if you yearn for a GTA-style game with a twist, this will satisfy-especially at the price it's at now. With lots of fun things to do other than taking out gangsters, the freedom allowed to you by Crackdown's world will surely entertain you for good while.
- Every boss battle is pretty much the same
- The gameplay gets repetitive
Yet the game is pretty fun to play overall. Crackdown is not a game you want to play for multiple hours straight because the gameplay is always the same. So playing in spurts keeps the game fun & less frustrating.
BasicallyyYou go to a boss location take on swarms & repeat. However there are some nice things that keep the game fun. For example you can work to uprgade your character. Its a open world game where you can do anything you want. That means steal cars, blow things up, do races foot & car.
+ Open World
+ GTA type Freedom
+ Upgrade character
+ Action Packed
Also enemies respawn in swarms so gunplay can get tedious after a while. Like I said playing in spurts is best to keep the game enjoyable
+ Nice Graphics
+ The city is HUGE
- The story is a one time play through and the ending is just cliché and made me irritated.
- Movement isn't the best in the world.
I give this a 3/5, but make sure you have played all of the best games, the great games, and the good games in the world before going to mediocre.
