When Crackdown 3 was shown off at Gamescon 2015, the game seemed to showcase a relatively detailed and layered destruction model as shown in this multiplayer demo:

Fast forward to 2019 and Crackdown 3 is days away from launch. We are now shown final build gameplay which looks shockingly bad when compared to present standards. Have a look:

What happened in the last few years? Is cloud compute complete BS? Do these physics and destruction effects look like "the power of 12 Xbox One consoles"? Maybe it's fun and it just needs to be experienced first hand, because fun factor >>>> graphics. What do you guys think?

Definitely was downgraded considerably but Microsoft making promises they can't keep is nothing new. They only do that to rile up their fanboys who feel all high and mighty when falling easily for Microsoft's exaggerations only to years later pretend they weren't hyped XD. I'm seeing it right now with all the Xbox going to Switch thing, they are assuming Microsoft is going to adsorb the competition and become the ultimate gaming juggernaut. What I hear though is the usual Microsoft talking crap, promising Heaven and Earth and Xbox fanboys once more drooling for something that is in a distant future which never comes to fruition ;-)

10 things you need to know about the Crackdown 3 single-player campaign

It never was my focus but I'm open to anything.

We've played Crackdown 3's ridiculous, awe-inspiring Wrecking Zone multiplayer: "the results really are something to behold"

Which is what I was into from the start. So as far as one day ago, some people are loving the MP. Well, this is why Gamepass is so great imo. I will play the f*ck out of it since I am a member.

But reading all GamesRadar has to say about Crackdown3, well if you like playing by yourself then it will not be for you.

@BigBadBully said:

Im pumped for the game, was a bit down when they dropped campaign co-op from 4 down to 2 but after hearing the decision on why, i'm at peace with it.

Wrecking Zone sounds like fun in bursts as it seems depth/content might be issue with longevity but added on content/support like Rare is doing with Sea of Thieves would remedy that.

Finally, most excited the cloud tech works and seeing developers utilize this for future games and just expand from what Crackdown 3 has done will be awesome. From the MS Smear Crew, I thought the game wasnt using the cloud anymore or it wouldn't work because not everyone has a good network connection....

@cainetao11: Everything I wanted to know was linked & answered with #1 thanks. Knowing I don't have to play as Crews thank **** for that, now I have decided to purchase it, but your last sentence is a little strange as it will be fully SP if you choose to do it that way and that's the way I will be doing it although I might play some co-op.

Oh and screw game pass I like to own my games, so full purchase coming my way.

Microsoft can't release a 4k console then a game that isn't 4k. Its a destructive game that will be heavily intensive on hardware and to output at 4k would be a challenge. Who knows how scaled back this game became, can't blame devs for this shit show blame M$. People seem to take the piss but both the previous crackdown scored well.

Crackdown 3 really took a downgrade cause it had to start rebuilding it all over again, so this isn't a shock to anyone.

I think BoxRekt is probably thinking why pay full price and not take advantage from Game Pass is what he's thinking obviously. The rest of you're post isn't showing you are hype to play Crackdown 3 and it's clear you don't like Terry Crews anyways.

You're gonna use a 5 minute video of someone running around to compare?!?

How about play the game and test to see the limits, rather than let brain dead journalists undersell you this game.

Xbox is like $200, 5 years of backlog, and Game Pass is easily had for $60 a year, how is that too much for your mortal souls?

Who hyped it? The 1 IGN video that showed the cloud destruction, and not from the team who is making this version?

What isn't as hype as we saw, the destruction? That somehow makes single player lame?

I'm listening to Unlocked, and he said 2 years ago media all saw it and weren't that hyped on it.

Specific folks keep saying this game was hype when it has been on the shit list of most gamers and media outlets for YEARS. Couple that with the sudden "I am so hugely disappointed.". Reminds me of Scalebound, where the game received waves and waves of hate and when it was cancelled the same folks changed their tune to "I was so looking forward to playing Scalebound. "

It was one of the most interesting newer IP MS had at the time, the only thing it got hated was bad framerate drops. The game really took an interesting setting as "How to Train your Dragon" in a way and it had multiple showings generating hype and when MS announce it's cancellation, everyone had ever right to be upset, can you blame'em?

LOL, denial. If Days Gone looks like a PS3 game then this Crackdown 3 is an Atari game.

Crackdown 3 is the worst looking AAA game I've seen this gen, literally looks like it stepped out of 2003.

But I can blame them. What I see now looks no different from what was show before outside of the megalithic destruction. Really, outside of the cloud destruction what else was shown that was of note?

Don't be a sore fanboy... You'd lose that bet. Days gone looks like it'll get a 8, possibly a 9. The newer videos have drastically shown improvement. Crackdown looks to be a 5-6. Not even comparable.

Crackdown 3 was more like an AA game. Gears 5 is MS big AAA game for 2019. I have seen two recent videos of Days gone and it seems to have smaller hordes of Zombies now. Ok maybe it doesn't look like a PS3 game but it doesn't look the best of Sony's other big AAAs.

I was trying to act like the haters that claim Crackdown 3 looks like a 360 game. The game might not be good but can you really say it looks like a 360 game?

What????? The dev/publisher is actually promoting their own game?????? Shocker, in other news water really is wet.

Obviously he's referring to posters here. The game hasn't gotten much hype in years. The only ones that continue to bring it up are you cows. Call me crazy but that sure does sound an awful lot like insecurity.

I am not the one comparing a Mid AA Action game to a big budget AAA title that has been in development since 2012. Days Gone has been downgraded. Less zombies or whatever they call them now. textures look worst now too.
