  1. Call it Crackdown 2, Crackdown 1.5, or if you're really snide, a Crackdown expansion pack, but no matter how you slice it, Crackdown 2 is a fun game that's exceptionally playable and enjoyable even if it's not as original as it could be had the game received more development time.
  2. Fans that loved the original and cherish the idea of being able to relive the experiences with more friends will find everything they could have hoped for, but for those excited for the next step in the series will find that Crackdown 2 hasn't moved very far at all.

    Undisputedly dazzling - but there's an overly familiar vibe. Deserved to be better than this. [Sept 2010, p.94]
  4. The biggest issue with Crackdown 2 is that it feels more like Crackdown 1½ than anything else. More new stuff and more variation would've been needed for higher grades. But in the end, it's still good fun to become a super agent and save the world with up to three friends online.
  5. Perhaps the best summary for Crackdown 2 is to say that it's essentially Crackdown with zombies and co-op. Initially, that sounds like the greatest game ever, but the real picture isn't quite so rosy. A newly designed city and seamless co-op aren't enough to overcome the game's ho-hum missions or general lack of content.
  6. For every positive aspect found in Crackdown 2, there's a handful of negative ones. The game is frustratingly bland, lacking in innovation and it really feels like less of a game than the title it's meant to follow on from.

    Crackdown doesn't look great, brings no fresh ideas and overall feels like an unnecessary product. Watching a TV fortune-teller is a better waste of time then Crackdown 2. [Aug 2010]

    very refreshing gameplay experience, it may not look amazing but it's a cut above the rest in every other aspect.

    After the excellent original I have to admit that Crackdown 2 was a little bit of a let down with very few new features really adding anythingAfter the excellent original I have to admit that Crackdown 2 was a little bit of a let down with very few new features really adding anything to the experience. There is of course plenty of enjoyment still to be had for fans of the first game, especially when playing in co-op, but this is very much a sequel by numbers. Expand

    First off if your looking for a good sandbox game will lots to do this is not the game for you. The graphics are cell-shaded which First off if your looking for a good sandbox game will lots to do this is not the game for you. The graphics are cell-shaded which doesn't look very good, along with the low resolution textures. Overall this is a game for only the hardcore Crackdown fans, it has no story at all which takes even more away from the expierence. The combat is the same as the first, the city is the same as the first, and basically the game is the same as the first. Expand

    How can someone give this game more than a 5? The first game is by far more superior and fun. This game obviously looks rushed. In How can someone give this game more than a 5? The first game is by far more superior and fun. This game obviously looks rushed. In Multiplayer there are lock on targeting, which makes to game extremely unenjoyable. Don't waste your time buying this atrocity, it belongs in the trash. Expand
