    Seriously, this game is a ton of fun. Unlike the disappointment that was Crackdown 2, this is the true sequel to Crackdown 1. While some have complained about the graphics, Crackdown 3 looks excellent on the Xbox One, particularly on the Xbox One X in native 4K resolution & HDR. When it comes to the city, the way the character moves, the way you interact with things, the way the vehicles transform -- though they transform differently than in Crackdown 1, etc., this is the true successor to Crackdown 1. The movement feels so good, too. Whether you're fighting enemies or climbing a tall building, everything just feels smooth. Crackdown was always a mix of open world Grand Theft Auto mayhem, mixed with a superhero movie, mixed with Mario-style platforming, and that's all on display here. You will level up your agility by collecting the oh so addictive orbs, you will level up strength by picking up objects & throwing them at your enemies, you will level up driving by completing races, by driving stylishly, by using your vehicles to down your foes, etc., and on and on. I disagree wholeheartedly with the negativity surrounding this game. Crackdown 3 is by no means a letdown. If you wanted a prettier version of Crackdown 1 with new abilities, more orbs, better graphics, a good framerate, etc., then look no further than Crackdown 3.

    It took a few years, but well worth the wait.

    I've been sporting an official Crackdown 3 t-shirt for as long as I can remember. I've been waiting for this game for so long that you could have easily convinced me that it was never coming out at all. While seemingly everyone in the gaming press has nothing but hate for this game, anyone that enjoyed the first game and loves a decent skill-based/mindless-action game will find perfection here. I've spent the whole weekend going through it and I'm happy to say that it absolutely lived up to my expectations. Is it deep and meaningful and chockfull of social commentary? Pffft, no. Does it push Xbox One X hardware to the limits? Not even (see Far Cry New Dawn if you want a truly beautiful-looking game). Crackdown 3 is a different beast entirely - a game that will no doubt remind you of better times in the industry, when "fun" was key and loot-boxes were still almost a decade away. In ain't perfect, but it's perfectly awesome.

    If you played the 1st 2 Crackdown games, you will be happy to know this plays just like those games but with far better graphics. Controls are tight, your agent now has new moves and skills to unlock, as well as your vehicle. Collecting orbs is addicting, and the go at your own pace campaign is nice. Explosions, guns, etc all sound great. The Xbox One X upgrades are awesome as well. The co-op is great, and the multi-player is out of control fun. Another great exclusive, we'll worth the wait.

    Crackdown 3 was a game that I’ve waited for years to play. They kept pushing the release date but it is finally here and well worth the wait especially if you are a fan of the first two. Even if you never played you will enjoy this game. Solo campaign is fun as is the co op mode. Haven’t tried the third way to play but I’m sure it is fun too. Get it and have fun. Terry Crews is one of the voices and a playable character. I keep waiting for him to do his chest pop.

    A lot of fun solo...but co-op is so much more insane. With new weapons, abilities, and challenges, the game delivers on guaranteed fun. Orb hunting is addictive as ever. The graphics are great, on Xbox One X, it's breathtaking. Vehicles handle OK, but are a small part of the game so it's not really that important. Another AAA exclusive for Microsoft, and definitely a must have title if you are into all out action and mayhem in an open world.

    All the professional reviewers rag on this game, but I have had more fun with this game than I ever had with Red Dead 2. IMO almost all Rockstar games have horrible controls and yet they get great reviews. The controls in Crackdown are some of the best I've ever experienced. Blasting from rooftop to rooftop is incredibly fun! I highly recommend this title.

    Ignore the reviews. This game is a total blast to play. The graphics are amazing especially in 4K HDR. If you've played and Loved previous games from before this is a no brainer purchase. Playing as Crews makes it even more fun. The weapons are insane and the orbs are back as well as the announcer guy. BIG FUN.

    Guys, if you want an oldschool single player game thats main concern is FUN than this is a game for you. People bashing it either didnt play it and are jumping on the hate train or just like drama. Its nowhere near what people are saying. Its just pure fun. Especially for the price!! Get game pass for 1 dollar for a month and try it!

    I'm enjoying Crackdown 3 so far, i'm having fun. The disc install was fast the network update was the tedious part of the install. I almost fell asleep. The game play reminds me of Destiny when you engage the enemy. Overall it was worth the wait and i got a free crackdown 3 steelbook.

    Not sure why all the hate. Game is great. So much fun. It’s basically a perfected version of the original. Yes it has some issues. It froze up on me twice but what game doesn’t have issues. The is reviewing the campaign part only. If you like crawdown you will like the 3rd installment.

    This a really great game. Its the equivalent version of a summer triple A action movie. You don’t have to necessarily understand what’s going on... just shoot things and make things explode. It’s included in the Xbox game pass so even if your not sure, at least try it

    I too agree with the other reviews here. If you liked the first one you'll like this one. The developers did exactly what they needed to do... make a current gen Crackdown it plays well, nice smooth framerate (I play it on One X) and just as much fun!

    I LOVED Crackdown 1 & 2, so I was super stoked to play this one. It has not disappointed at all. This is a mindless, arcade type game, which is perfect someone like me that doesn't have hundreds of hours to put into one game.

    This is crackdown. Despite what people expect or want as an evolution to a franchise, someone’s gonna play the critic. I enjoy this series for what it is and glad that theirs another entry. It had a rocky development but it’s here and it’s fun.

    Yet another 1st party Xbox game that is critically panned but delivers when it comes to fun factor. It's certainly not without its flaws but this game positively sings, especially on Xbox One X when paired to a 4K/HDR tv.

    If you like this series, you'll love this game. Compared to other games, this is definitely caught up in the past, but just compared to the other Crackdown games this is easily the most refined and most fun to play.
