CrimeCraft is set in a gritty fictional city of the near future, following an ecological disaster of unprecedented scale, where the price of life is far less valuable than one’s reputation. Join thousands of players online as you learn the rules of the street, build your own gang and do whatever it takes to survive amidst the chaos. Earn a reputation. Build a gang. Kill the competition.

  1. It's surprisingly rewarding to climb in levels and get a new gun only to trick it out with some mods and a new paint scheme, and for what the game lacks in complexity or a plot, it definitely makes up for it with its fast-paced and enjoyable gameplay.
  2. There are fun moments to be had, but it feels like a combination of different games forced together. There isn't anything terribly unique about it, and frankly, it really needs more game play content outside of the instances.
  3. I want to recommend CrimeCraft, I really do. However, with the frustrating gameplay, graphics that seem overly dated, and the game trying to do too much without doing anything well, I seriously wonder if I wouldn't have had more fun lighting cigars with the same two twenty-dollar bills I used to pay for this game.
  4. You'd think that a "persistent world next-gen shooter" would have a persistent world. What you get instead is a static universe filled with traditional non-player character vendors, crafting facilities, auction houses, and a distinct lack of adventure.
  5. The standard PvP gameplay can be a lot of fun, and the RPG elements are better than expected. But much of what is offered is available in most shooters with free multiplayer.
  6. 56
    The shooter element may be fun in the short term, but it's ultimately forgettable and not nearly strong enough to make you ignore the unfulfilled potential here.
  7. An atrocious MMO wedded to a fleetingly enjoyable multiplayer shooter. Had Vogster just focused on the latter component, it might have had something worthwhile.

The interface between the city/lobby and the action is smooth and things look great. I have to comment on "Jared J," who gave the game a 0 because he never learned to read. The 1st 2 months do not cost 19.99. The first 2 months are free, and included in the price of the game, which is now like 30-40 bucks. After the 2 months you pay 9.99 or 4.99 (with less functions). Strong game with a good future. Expand

Shooting and The controls of this game are pretty easy to get used to. The graphics are unreal and the ammount of weapons is a definite plus. Shooting and player movement is excellent. Forming your gang is an easy process, and communicaiton within the game is great. I am kicking my brother's butt every day, HAHA. I think he's about to leave my gang and create his own. Definetely worth every penny. Expand

    Obviously, Whoever Jared is hasn't actually played the game. I payed $50 and have 2 months free game time. It's $10 a month to play Obviously, Whoever Jared is hasn't actually played the game. I payed $50 and have 2 months free game time. It's $10 a month to play after that. So, his only complaint after which, he rated it a 0 is a lie. You get two months free when you purchase it at full price. Now, the MMO content is a lot of fun. You can create anything from the clothes you wear to the modifications of the guns that can be created. The PvP is a blast, and I keep coming back for more... and I've been playing for over a month. I don't really feel as if I'm grinding for levels, as I do with other MMOs, but my character is advancing and becoming better. I honestly think this is one of the best games I have played in a long time. I have only come along two problems with the game, one of which the developers can do nothing about, and that is a bunch of whiny people playing the game. The only real complaint I have come across is that I think a passive skill shouldn't have to be equipped, but I guess that's arguable. Anyway, there's tons of stuff to be crafted, a persistent Auction House with fluctuating prices, and tons of Third Person Shooter action to be had... All for $50 for two months of free play online and only $10 thereafter. What more can you ask for? Expand

Every time I play this game it feels like something is lacking or that somethings are way out of place. The shooting is nice but the rest is very inconsistent. There are a lot of balance issues because of the premium stuff and the matchmaking is a bit weird...That's pretty much CrimeCraft in a nutshell: Inconsistent and weird... Expand

    Poor game - gets stale in a matter of days. Why they expect anyone to pay for a retail box, monthly fee, and micro-transactions is beyond Poor game - gets stale in a matter of days. Why they expect anyone to pay for a retail box, monthly fee, and micro-transactions is beyond comprehension. There has been a maximum of 350 users online in PEAK times, on the one and only server. This game will not last to see 2010, save your money and time. Expand

    Now i play a lot of games, this one by far was such a dissappointment. Its supposed to be a persistent mmo but well it isnt very persistent. Now i play a lot of games, this one by far was such a dissappointment. Its supposed to be a persistent mmo but well it isnt very persistent. the graphics are decent, nothing top notch but acceptable. the gameplay though is wat kills the entirety of the game. everythin is based on PvE or PvP, for those who do not know wat that it, you pretty much load into the game, walk to certain people who will put you into another loading screen where there is a short list of multiplayer options such as team death match, snatch, or co-op. then you lay for a few minutes to just be put into another loading screen, the missions you recieve consist of gettin so many kills or talking to people, its not very exciting. and dont think im one of those people whom did not give the game a try. i got my character to lever 30 and said the hell with it. you'll have better luck spending your money on saints row or gta4. atleast those games have fun missions and very well played out multiplayer Expand

    "Awesome!" That's what ran inside my mind when I saw this. I was able to enjoy a game that lets you create your own gang and other stuff "Awesome!" That's what ran inside my mind when I saw this. I was able to enjoy a game that lets you create your own gang and other stuff that has not been done before outside of a flash game. After two hours of installing I was ready to play...I was not ready to hit play and be directed to a site asking me to pay ANOTHER $19.99 for two months of play! THIS IS ABSURED!! I refunded it not even four hours after purchase. Do not purchase this, there are plenty of games online that are the EXACT same thing and they are free. Who wants to pay $49.99 for a game, THEN pay ANOTHER $19.99 for only TWO MONTHS OF PLAY!! THEN, IT'S $9.99 FOR EACH MONTH!! This is would have made a great Single Player game. Expand
