@efesell: that screen is also from the first week this game was out, which means that guy was roughly getting 100 kills per day. I really admire the skill and dedication cause that’s no easy feat - it’s also something I absolutely can’t contend with on any level.

@mylifeforaiur: For better and worse, these somewhat odd or middling Microsoft exclusives like Crackdown or Below are in fact a great commercial for GamePass in a backhanded sort of way. The way you describe it and others have - this was pretty fun on GamePass but I wouldn't recommend to pay full price for this product - is in it's own way a real good incentive to try out games you otherwise wouldn't bother pruchasing indivisually. Right now I'm anticipating several games coming out in the near months, like DMC5, Sekiro, Division 2 and off in the distance RAGE2. Not a whole lot of new stuff is coming out right now, or rather not a lot of stuff that I am interested in, but with GamePass I can guilt free just enjoy this sensless romp of Crackdown 3 without having spent $60 on it. I had bought a yearly subscription to GamePass for $60 on sale and up to this point finished roughly 5 games through it so I've gotten my moneys worth and then some.

That said, I really do wish that Microsoft exclusives started getting a little better because they haven't had a homerun, or honestly even a half decent showing in a long time. The service is there, but the games have been a no-show quite literally from the beginning of the generation.

Put a few hours into it today. As far as a throwback real simple checklist open world game it's pretty fun. From all the screens and previews it looked really bland and dated but when you're playing it I dunno it just seems cohesive in a way. By no way a great looking game but it seems to do well with what they were aiming for. The little intro movie is actually pretty fun.

As far as gameplay - yah it's alright. I mean as much as Dan loves to bring up any reason to shit on RDR2 these days (Dan will be Dan) I do agree that Crackdown 3 offers the most direct form of gameplay I've explained in a while. Everything is labeled, the controls are fairly snappy, there is no unnecessary fluff. You just go and do stuff with little to no mystery about what is going on. All upgrades are visible from the menu so you know exactly what you are working towards, all orbs and activities are labeled on the map showing you how much of what you've checked off on a list of collectibles for each district. If you wanted to play a game-ass-game then this is most certainly it.

As has been mentioned before, if you have a Game Pass then this is a real fun little diversion. Definitely scratches that itch for just collecting stuff while at the same time seeing tangible results for your troubles.

If there is a sweet deal then I’ll pre-order without a second thought, it’s just how brave I am.

@humanity: This is what development Hell does, Just remember Duke Nukem Forever, sure its not as bad this is an extreme comparison but, when it came out it did feel outdated because of the time it took to make the game.

Thankfully I have GamePass so I won't mind just checking it out on that. Would have never actually paid full price for this.

It's odd that this game was this long in development and in terms of graphics and gameplay seems SO far behind everything else. It's almost like it just wasn't working out, but it's Crackdown and they would look bad if they never released it so here it is..

@rorie: No worries its not the end of the world. Next time it happens I’ll try to screencap it.
