  • Summary: CrimeCraft is a Persistent World Next-gen Shooter (PWNS) that blends a gripping, action-packed shooter experience with the best community and role-playing elements found in massively multi-player games. 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. 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.
  5. 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.
  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.

    Crimecraft did alot of things right and alot of things wrong. Having put nearly 1000 hours into the game over the course of a few years I can tell you that the game was better a few years ago before Vogster butchered it trying to lessen player turn out by dumbing down the difficulty and complexity of the game. Anyone who played orginally will solemnly admit this to you. That being said, the actually gameplay itself has not changed much and is still alot of fun to go back to now and then. This was the first shooter/match game I played that had a social lobby in it and I believe all shooters should follow suit. Expand

    This could be a really nice game, unfortunately, it isn't. 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

    My name is Devin Waaland and i was a longtime player of crimecraft i have played since right after closed beta, just about 2 years of my life have gone into this game. I am a highly respected member of the community, I was a member of the players council. And i host a youtube channel with 50 + videos and over 25,000 views all for crimecraft. I have given my life to this game and tried my hardest to encourage all players and help all players. Recently I was wrongfully banned from this game for ever...... for what u ask?? Cheating,Hacking ...... NOT AT ALL. I was banned for life for asking questions about the GM'S and how they are abusing there power all the time. They tried to hide my posts in the forums and tried to mute my in game chat. After trying many times and getting many warnings from them to stop. I listened to my heart and couldnt let it keep going on without saying something. It started with 1 post with no slander or wrong information it was full of actual facts and screenshots for proof of wrongdoings. Instead of letting the community voice there opinion they needlessly deleted all posts concerning gm moderation and tried to hide and surpress all evidence. I was not about to stand there an let this go on so i caused a stir as they called it in the community trying to let the people see the truth. Apperently they dont want the truth to be known so i was permimentaly banned from the game and continously needlessly muted. Here is a link to my rant video best explaining what has transpired in the past few days.
