Aug 30, 2011One of these days, someone will figure out how to make a decent shooter/MMO hybrid, and that person will be fantastically rich. But that day is not today, and that game is certainly not Crimecraft. What it gains in innovation (by taking elements from successful MMOs and trying to graft them into a shooter), it loses in gameplay and awkward user interfaces. In addition, the graphics and animations are just not up to snuff. The best part of the game is the comic style artwork that tells the story. Great visuals, but they don't save the game from itself.… Expand
Sep 7, 2011There is little about Crimecraft that is terribly new or exciting. Weapons are interesting and the ability to fight alongside your gang while carrying your own side mission is interesting, but that's about where is stops. Crafting is painfully slow, gameplay is lackluster, and getting into the major town to play games goes from interesting to boring as Capture the Flag games are going on. If I wanted to play CTF, I would play another game as movement is extremely buggy and death is quite swift. Give it a try if you want, but after a few hours I was quite sick of it.… Expand
Oct 3, 2011Crimecraft: Bleedout is a poor excuse for a game that has the sole purpose of milking as much money out of it's players as possible for the least return in increased entertainment value.
While the basic visual design is actually sound and very detailed, it derails completely at the point where it can no longer be ignored that absolutely everything that looks good is also something sold for real money, while all things that can be collected and achieved through gameplay are substandard in every aspect including design.
Most importantly though, the gameplay itself is uncomfortable and even that is used in an attempt to squeeze money out of the players, as tools to help with gameplay nuisances like running around all day are also sold for money.
The only problem is, that in order to get the gameplay value of any full price game out of this alleged free-to-play piece, players have to invest more than if they had outright bought four to five honest games to begin with.
1.5 points for the design.
0.5 points for the gameplay
0 points for everything else.… Expand
Aug 23, 2011Nice fake 10-reviews. This game is actually terrible for a plethora of reasons. It's a blatant attempt to milk people for an extortionate amount of cash just to get ahead of the game. Balance and map design are terrible and there are few or no redeeming features.
As an example of the "amazing" combat, knifing oneshots people and there's a grenade that stuns people for three seconds. Nade, knife, dead. Nothing you can do.… Expand
Dec 14, 2012I cannot recommend this game. I played for 18 months now, but in case of anti-cheat policy really nothing changed. The game, especially EU Server (Cabrese) is still infested with cheaters.
Mayn games does nothing against them, but is shutti
ng down any public discussion on the matter. The ongoing threatening of legit players who try to fight the worst cheaters is leading to the wrong "feeling" that the game has no problems with cheaters at all.
But the exact opposite is the case.
Old developers of CrimeCraft develop and sell commercial cheater clients to their russian and ukrainian customers. Known cheaters return, even if banned, the very next day with new account and new nickname, but the same old cheats.
Some players have build up an economy on selling lvl 50 accounts to those hackers to supply them with always new and easy accounts to have their wicked fun.
The biggest gangs, iNSANEs, MAD, Redemption and LUCIFER are all protecting cheaters, because they are helping them to dominate Territory wars or carry them to their daily and weekly tournament victories.
Dont get me wrong, there are good players in this game and you usually feel it when you face them. But there are also many cheaters who basically have a good skill, but cheat to be just the best.
Typical cheaters will use the SIGMA SMG or Raskolnikow LMG because that way they can get the biggest benefit of the usual aimbot.
Just watch their reactions when you shoot at a cheater, especially from far away. They will turn fast in all directons, randomly spraying bullets because they think you are right behind them and try to get a lock with their aimbot. It looks kinda funny.
Also good indicators are very high mouse sensitivites that you can see in spectator mode. They move like they had some spasmic problems, but as soon as they lock on target, the crosshair stays cool and clear on the target until its dead.
So, this game cannot be recommended at all.
Paying money for it is like throwing it out of the window, because after all, it also turned pay2win and there are people who spend hundreds of dollars per month (!) for their equipment (there is evidence now, Mayn started an event to see who spends most money. The winners have a special title now "Fat Cat".
So you can chose: play the game and be owned by cheaters that are protected by the development
Or: play the game and be owned by ppl who spent more money on it.
You will never win a daily tournament unless you befriend with the biggest **** in this game (B3AST of Mad gang, cheater himself, Highness of Redemption, the oldest russian cheater gang on the server, or NeferTITI from iNSANEs, a really mentally retarded person with many asslickers arround him.
Or LUCIFER where a russian girl named KITIKEN keeps hacking with always new accounts (currently named "Bloodsisters".
By the way: soon there will be games coming out that beat CrimeCraft in its unique playing style. No need to start it so far...
