All these people comparing first party games to Sumo Digital which has always been an AA studio. It's clear there is media bias against everything Xbox. This game is better than the score these jokers are giving it. Anyway have fun playing scores Aholes. I am out of here so all I have to say to the haters and idiot reviewers...... Bye Felicia.

Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

So when Forza Horizon get a 90 or better scores..

Lemmings be like.

When a game like Crackdown,sea of thieves or other gets a 60 or 65 score.

You people surely are a joke what tag Crackdown as a total failure is what also tag Forza Horizon as a great success,and scores is not the problem here is you people.

This is not TLOU or Halo 3 which got all incredible high scores and you usual troll score below the line,no this games sucks and got scored accordingly.

It's actually you idiots that hyped the game up. I didn't see one Xbox owner hype it. You guys did. Let that sink in.. Fresh outta third person fetch simulators to play? I'd imagine so as Cows are on these boards way too much...

At least we can all agree Wrecking Crew is legit garbage and they should drop this whole cloud destruction thing.

Guerilla did this stuff better and it looked like a video game.

Welp, just defeated Keita at the refinery.

*SIGH*

What can I say about this game so far? It's Crackdown. It's just not a Crackdown for this gen. It really does feel like a throwback. I know that's a critique I've been hearing a lot, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Except this game should have released two years after the first (I never played the second). It truly is a game stuck in time, except using a newer graphics engine.

Trying as many techniques as I can, been playing at lengthy enough intervals to up my skills. I almost wished they would have dropped the orb system altogether instead of having you hunting and pecking for agility and hidden orbs that seems like it takes forever to get a result. Got the ground pound, super fist, can lift heavier shit, have an agency vehicle. Firearm skills are up... but somehow, this hasn't made the game any less annoying because you're constantly being shot at from every direction by something. Just gained a territory? Taken out a vehicle station? Freed some rebels? Supplanted a propaganda tower? Cool. Now, you want to take a breather to look for some more orbs? Too bad, because SOMETHING'S still going to be shooting at you, no matter the progress.

After the first couple of hours, I thought "this isn't too bad", but as I push on, this gameplay loop is soul-crushing. It's literally, go to area, blow up things and goons, hack something, destroy a piece of machinery, open valve then destroy that. They had five years to work on this game and had nothing really compelling enough to drive this game forward. So many open world games have done this type of game better since the first Crackdown. The Prototype games had a stronger progression system, and you felt more powerful overall than this orb gobbling agent. Echo relentlessly squawking in my ear giving me some piece of intel or telling me to do something bugs the piss out of me.

This game's defenders say it's "fun", because it seemed to come at the expense of variety. I hear this game isn't super long, so maybe I can get through it at the next session, where I'll likely be DONE with it. I'm not interested in doing any racing missions. So far, there's nothing here I feel that was a game worth saving from production hell.

Just remember that according to Gamespot, Crackdown 3 is better than Darksiders 3, worse than Sea of Thieves and Jump Force is better than all three.

Played a little more. These platforming segments are the polar opposite of fun. Went to fight Ngata, lost. Will come back to it. The climb to get to him seemed to take forever while Echo told me I was almost there... AT THE FUCKING HALFWAY POINT.

And do they really have to make things pitch black at night? Really makes climbing those propaganda towers a slog. Can't wait to be through with this.

You are late to this annoyance. :P

The blackness at night is for specific materials which as stated makes night for tower climbing GAWD AWFUL. I don't know who the hell greenlight those materials.

Beat it last night had fun all the way through. It's strange so many reviews were terrible I don't know what they are playing. Obvious basing the game on the past promises than never materialised. Take that out and play the game for what it is. There's enjoyment there.

The game is fun to play. I enjoyed it myself but the bosses on higher difficulties is nothing but a spamfest.

Crackdown 1 was better :)

So I just beat Crackdown 3. Spent 12 hours on normal difficulty and almost got all the achievements except beating the game on legendary, grabbing all the hidden orbs, grabbing all the agility orbs, and the driving achievements.

The good? The game is just more Crackdown 1; nothing really new here and the game isn't pushing anything really new tech wise. Traversing through the city causing mayhem was cool. Certain weapons were a blast to shoot with and overall the gameplay was smooth. I enjoyed the games visual style as well.

The bad? The story sucks, the driving is abysmal, and towards the end after beating the game; the world just feels empty. You'll see a few enemies here and there but overall that's it. You could start a new game and retain your agent but why?

I'd give the game a 7/10. Its dumb and its fun.

To think they took 4 years to make the game. To the game's credit the world itself is detailed enough just that it is very under utilized.

My Crackdown 3 journey ends... and I feel none the better for it. Maybe the groundwork for a better game was in there somewhere. I think a lot of lems that were blindly praising the game didn't actually play it. I brought Terra Nova to it's knees, but the journey wasn't exactly a pleasant one. I'm not sure why these devs put 80 percent of the game's design into scaling the obnoxiously tall towers in the center of the map. If I didn't have acrophobia before, I fucking do now. Jesus!

It's unfortunate that none the game's bosses are particularly interesting, or clever. It's just you trying to pelt them as much as possible while they spam you with enemies. It's frustratingly lazy game mechanics. They give the agent all these cool abilities, only to drop you into a tank full of piranhas where they'll only be so effective.

This is the first open world game I've played in a while where I don't want to do any more of the objectives after completing it. And that's a shame. So, upon completion, this is not even close to the best of what Xbox has had to offer this gen. I found games like Quantum Break, Gears 4, Sunset Overdrive and Cuphead to be far more solid experiences for the platform. I'm confused as to why people would rally around this one. It's not worth bragging about.

I rate this one 5 out of 10 orbs. Thanks a lot @Sevenizz. I hope you're happy.

xbox fanboys have been exposed for their fake standards and hypocrisy of trying to criticize vastly superior Sony games only to try to give this lazy dumpsterfire of a game a pass.

Like always, EVERY vocal PS4 hater on this board who try to criticize the most minute details of every PS4 game that gets revealed (Dreams for example) try to give this low quality turd MS shat out a pass by buying it day 1 or thru GP and trying to argue It's all about fun, standards be damned.

FOH, their entire phony fanbase has been exposed.

It couldn't have come at a better time as the Xbox brand is all but dead and lemmings opinion on games can forever be dismissed as these muppets cheer for MS's "money" with MS offering their limited game library to other console manufacturers.

Never mind games, yah for MS's money?

I'm glad these guys exposed themselves.

These guys have shown they don't give a damn about the quality of games and that they don't actually support MS because they delivering better games. Both those arguments are dead now. We can officially stop calling lemmings "xbox fanboys" and officially call them "fake-gaming MS shills". Any poster who defended these things from MS in the past few days has invalidated their option on any games going forward.

If this were a Playstation exclusive that had been hyped for five years that finally rolled out after a string of flops before it, I wouldn't be happy. But, console wars aside, I'm actually shocked at how lackluster this game turned out. I know I had been giving it shit before, but it would have been welcome if the game proved me wrong.

Games aren't always going to turn out great, I understand. But when you're served an old and stale bologna sandwich when the menu picture clearly had an angus gourmet burger, you don't eat it and demand seconds. Console solidarity is not that important.

I didn't even download the multiplayer. I'm just that disinterested.

Pretty much but MS could potentially make more money by giving their "xbox" services and games to other platforms including competing console manufacturers!

Not so great for competition, but hey, MS's money is the only thing corporate fanboys in the xbox camp express they actually care about, so rejoice!

For everyone else, if the rumors about what MS is planning to do actually turns out to be true, xbox really is dead.

Feel free to check the comments of "xbox fans" by clicking the youtube icon of Crapgamer's xbox focused game channel in reference to this news. Non-gaming MS fanboys might not agree, but actual xbox fans sure feel that way.
