    Don’t listen to the critics !

    This is a short & sweat review Let me start by saying yes the game has been in development for 4 years which In return is the same time it took to develop top tier games like halo gears of war ect ect... with that being said if you go into this game expecting a game on par with halo god of war & GTA 5 you will be let down. If you’ve played the original crackdown & liked it you will love this one. Crackdown 3 does not deserve all bad reviews it’s getting from critics. The multiplayer mode wreaking zone is ok in short burst but could use some server & stability patches. Now the main story is a lot of fun especially in coop. It’s a great game to just jump in wreck stuff up jump around & collect some orbs to power up your agent. My best advice is be your own review & don’t listen to the bad critic reviews that are bashing it because of delays & gameplay not being much different from the original which I think it’s what makes crackdown crackdown. I bought the game day 1 & really am enjoying it I suggest at least give it a try on game pass to see if it’s worth a purchase.

    I loved the original Crackdown and hated Crackdown 2, and this game delivered on what was good about the first game. If you like hunting for agility orbs, blowing stuff up, leaping tall buildings, going after bad guys, and throwing cars around then you'll have fun. The multiplayer is meh, you can play it if you want, it could have been better, but they've made it sort of a seperate game with a full 1,000 GS just for the campaign. The game performs super smooth with no issues and looks freakin amazing on a good HDR display, especially at night when there are so many bright, vibrant neon sign colors that transform the city setting and create a great mood and tone for a futuristic city. The steelbook I received for free with it from Best Buy is great too. I think people expected a little bit more from a game that was in development for so long, but overall it was a fun game that capitalized on what was good from the original. Definitely a must play for any fan of the original Crackdown.

    Awesome mindless fun, a real blast

    This is a game that is absolutely a blast to play. Is it the most beautiful work of art? No, though it can still dazzle you with its colorful style. Is it the best platformer ever? No, but it's rewarding overcoming the challenges in getting to the top of structures and getting a particularly difficult orb or turning off a propaganda tower. The jumps and your handling feel crisp and smooth, and when you fall, it's your fault. Overall, the game does exactly what it sets out to do: deliver a tongue in cheek, fun experience. I put about 20 hours in so far, and I have enjoyed every minute. Haven't touched multiplayer, but the campaign is great.

    I managed to complete the game in about 19 hours, defeating all the major enemies and collecting about half of the agility and hidden orbs. I kept having flashbacks of the first 2 games and the last Saints Row game while playing this game, not that that’s a bad thing. Knowing that the voice actress for the main bad guy in this game is the same one that plays Mara Sov in Destiny 2 was a treat. I kept expecting an angry Awoken to come out of nowhere and murder me at every possible turn. Silly, campy fun and an open ended finale that left room for a sequel, I would recommend this game for fans of the franchise. I give it a solid B.

    Generic Open World Slog (with Terry Crews)

    Crackdown 3 is an open world title based off of the first two games released for the XBOX 360. The graphics feel dated, and the game is as generic as they come. For a game in development as long as Crackdown 3 has been, this is incredibly disappointing. There are better open world titles released recently worth playing. If there's anything good to take from this title, it's that Terry Crews handles vocal work in the game (and his performance is well worth hearing.)

    If you are a fan of the previous Crackdown games then this will be right up your alley This game doesn't deliver anything new. The same Crackdown you have come to know and love is still here. IF you are a fan of the previous games or Agents of Mayhem you will enjoy this game. Might want to wait for it to go on sale before picking it up. $60 is a bit steep for this type of game.

    When i first started Crackdown 3 I was a little disappointed. The story is shallow and doesnt ever get deep. With that said, the gameplay is just as addicting as the first 2. Once i started collecting more orbs and leveling up my skills,I just had to keep going. Its a fun experience that you can pick up and play with no time commitment. This game probably wont win any awards but it will surely keep you entertained for 15-20 hours

    This is three in the series. If you liked 1 and 2. Three is the charm. This is a shooter and no excuses. It starts off running. It is a big open world, if thing get tough move on to another section. The only part I found hard was the antennas. You are constantly gaining strengths and skills. There is a story line, its just enough to make it work. Its a good game.

    If you liked the first one, this is a must buy. I know most review sites are saying this game is terrible and I couldn’t disagree more. The game does auto aim for you during combat, so it is rather simplistic in that regard. Beyond that though it is a very fun game that will provide hours of play for every person who is bent on completing a game to 100%

    Crackdown 3 is extremely fun and addicting gameplay. It doesn't really add anything new to the openworld, sandbox style games but it perfected what was started in Crackdown1&2. Looks beautiful on the Xbox One X in 4k and has a decent amount of tasks and enemy types to keep you busy. I'd give it a solid 7.5/10

    I get that this game is getting a bad rap. I for one am a big fan of the series. It's a bit mindless, but if there was a "good way" then this is it. Freedom in a sandbox environment and reckless fun with friends. If this is on sale (I got it for $30) then it's worth investing in.

    We’ve loved the crackdown series. Gameplay is very much like a slightly refined version of previous games in the series. Little bit more story to it (for better or worse). Seems to have borrowed gameplay and stories from other popular games, and all in all fun to play.

    I you've played the first Crackdown, you'll like this one. Rinse and repeat like before, grinding to max out your stats and searching for orbs. You'll spend hours on this game, then get tired. It's always fun to blow stuff up if you're into that kind of stuff.

    I just wanted the Steel Book, and I'm a sucker for Crack Down. Fun game but repetitive. I understand the game got heavily criticized but idk I like it in my collection. Lots of fun to be had but I think it'll be a short game. Plus it's on Game Pass!

    I don't understand some of the reviews for this game. It's an over the top shooter with huge explosions and fun weapons. And when playing coop it's even more fun. I have not played the multi player so I can't speak about that.

    This game is pretty fun especially if you liked the other two crack down games. Game play is good but I’ve noticed it’s almost to easy at times but the open world that lets you do pretty much whatever you want makes up for that.

    As a fan of the previous Crackdown games this works well. Newcomers might not appreciate the niche arcade like style of gameplay. But if you know Crackdown then this should satisfy. Plus Terry Crews.

    Fun open sandbox game kills for skills, drive for skill and jump for skills. Very similar to the first Crackdown but with more cutscenes, agents and weapons. One objective take out the syndicate!

    Been waiting on this version for the new XBox for quite some time. Overall has the fun of the first two, but occasional screen freezing becomes bothersome. Still enjoy playing the game though.

    I have played the campaign all they way though. It is just plain fun. Lots of one - liner dialogue in the game that is hilarious. I have not tried the multiplayer so I cannot review that.
