Wing Suits, Explosions, and Freaks! Oh my!
So I have had a few days to get into this and I have to say it’s a pretty fun game. If your into crazy gun fights, explosions, and running over freak zombies then this is the game for you. Now if you played the first Crackdown you will recognize a lot of the city, only this time its a bit destroyed. Parts of Pacific City have suffered greatly with buildings on fire and roofs crumbling in. It was a good time to run around on Co-op hunting down orbs, which become an addiction due to the fact that this will make you more powerful. Unlocking the flight suit after finally getting enough agility orbs is a fun addition to the game. After you get down the controls you can easily glide to anywhere on the map. And who doesn’t enjoy skydiving out of the agency helicopter at the highest point? Now while all that is good and fun, there are a few things that can annoy you. There are a few glitches like getting stuck in a wall or getting locked in a car that can frustrate but they don’t happen all to much. Getting rocket spammed or grenade spammed by Cell guys can be frustrated too, as it knocks you down and cannot move to get away. The game is mostly run here shoot all this, run there shoot all that and it can get repetitve but overall Crackdown 2 is a fun expierience. The ability to go online and play with 3 other friends in co-op or take on 15 other online foes in multiplayer is what will make this game an enjoyable time. Coming up with new ways to blow things up can always entertain. I would have to put my rating and a solid 7.5/10 overall with a high replay value. That’s just one guys opinion. Try it and enjoy it for yourself.
