What Gamespot Users have to say about Crackdown 2

  • User Rating 6

    Crackdown 2 is fun, but it is not as good as the original, and gets far too repetitive after a few hours....

    Having played the original Crackdown barely for 10 minutes, I thought I would pick this up for $10 in the bargain bin. After putting the disk in, I wasn't impressed. The graphics, for one, look nearly...

    Crackdown 2 doesn't stray far from the original formula, but rather further refines what was already a great game.

    I found the original Crackdown to be hugely surprising. While, yes, it was packaged with beta access to Halo 3, the gameplay experience was giddy fun and elevated the game to a full-on sleeper hit. Th...

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. All of the best aspects of the original, plus just enough tweeking.

    There is plenty of things about Crackdown that bothered everyone. The climbing mechanics, the auto target selecting the wrong guy etc. But these went with the territory when you have a massive city t...

    Ruffian Games took a good IP and turned out a game with a lame story and features missing from the game.

    Having spent over 120 hours playing the original Crackdown, I was psyched to pick up the much anticipated sequel. I love how Pacific City has fallen apart. You can feel the despair in the world. Wh...

    Crackdown 2 presents more like a Crackdown 1.5 Beta than a real sequel.

    Rated on July 07, 2010 by Vividnightmare

    Graphics - 7.0 Controls - 6.5 Story - 5.0 Mechanics - 5.0 Overall - 7.0 Graphics - Crackdown 2 presents virtually the exact same as the first. While slight improvements have been made and mo...

    Like the original game, its just as fun if not more so.

    Rated on July 07, 2010 by Talnar85

    They took the first and made it better by adding more things to do my favorite is the tactical assaults that you do on the Cell groups, and the new wing suit you get at level five agility. If you play...

    Same as the first but not a bad thing.

    Rated on July 08, 2010 by Kashmiro

    This game is getting a ton of hate from everyone and I don't quite understand it. The game is completely based on no story and pretty much only collecting stuff. But we all knew that going in, that is...

    Rated on July 08, 2010 by Anonymoe

    Pros: Playing around in a super-powered sandbox is still enjoyable; There is something undeniably addictive about collecting orbs; Full 4-player support at all times Cons: 90% of the game is the sa...

    Had a lot of potential, but is still fun.

    Rated on July 10, 2010 by Ice_Viper_23

    Ok, I was really excited for this game, and I was disappointed. Yeah it's still fun and I'll play it, but they could have done so much more with this game. For starters, there is only a handful of age...

    WOW! So much better than the first

    Rated on July 11, 2010 by Artist-8

    This game is surprisingly underrated on a general level. I got the first Crackdown and played for a maximum of 5 hours. The game was good in some parts but failed in most. This one, though similar,...
