Product Description

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.

Next generation gaming has never been this open!

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.

Multiplayer mayhem
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.

Not what you'd expect if you read reviews that put this game into the GTA category. Certainly, it is a sandbox, and not a bad one at all, and you will take down gangster bosses and their deputies, one at a time. However the major difference is that there is literally no interaction between your hero and any of the individuals in the game, neither friends, enemies or bystanders, other than taking them down. The city is full of life, lot's of people and traffic, but it feels 'empty' since all you are doing is running around taking down enemies in a 3rd person shooter fashion. What makes it fun though is how you do it, the arsenal of weapons you have at your disposal once you find them, as well as insanely blowing things up, combined with supernatural powers like running faster than cars or jumping 20ft high. So if you can disconnect yourself from a 'true' GTA-like adventure and are into free-exploring arcade style adventure shooting, this is a fun one. Once you ramp up your arsenal with powerful weapons, such as a grenade or rocket launcher you will rule the city and the missions become everything else but hard to master, and just the fact that you have the chance to go about taking down your enemies in various ways and various approaches (try to find the right backdoor in can change a mission from nearly impossible to being over in a few minutes) provides great variety of gameplay. You character can level up, about four levels for a handful of skills and you can actually approach levelling like in an RPG. Find a convenient save point, which handily serves as a weapons depot at the same time and you can nuke at your hearts content getting the desired skill points. Don't take the game to seriously, it's blasting fun.

Crackdown now has to stand on its own as a sale. I was doubtful of how much fun I would have from trying the demo, but after renting it and giving it a serious play (besides participating in the Halo 3 beta) I certainly plan to own Crackdown, most likely from a Marketplace seller at an appealing price.

Like the GTA series, the game is an open sandbox, and there are enough interesting physics and unique aspects of the gameplay to enjoy over the span of several months. Really you can complete the game story in a few days of play, so if you can enjoy the world and the frenetic gameplay as mindless fun there's really no more to be justified.

The co-op online story play is interesting if you like that kind of thing with friends or strangers. And they have added ample amounts of free and priced DLC to add missions and new gametypes. Hopefully more will come.

In summary, Crackdown is like candy, with little nutrition, and a creamy nougat centre of Beta, but still enjoyable again and again... in moderation of course.

Originally, this game was a big hit because it included codes for Halo 3, but that doesn't mean this game isn't worth playing. At times it felt a little draggy and repetitive, but I stuck around until the end and it provide a good experience.
