Trawling through this bullshit 6 years after it came out, was a terrible idea.
Current on 299/300 secret orbs -_-
and 483/500 agility orbs.
Here’s me picking up 420!
So yeah, you know me, I take pics of l33t and 420 in games, that’s me lol.
Regardless if whether or not you liked Crackdown, it’s a piece of shit by today’s standards, but the funny thing is, it set up the standard conventions we now fight against.
Crackdown was one of, if not essentially, the first open-world sandbox game with a lot of pull, why?
Not because of merit or reasons such as…exclusive interviews or ‘first looks’, it was a sad excuse of a game, it was the first EVER game to be popular on the coat-tails of a real franchise, Halo.
Microsoft Studios swung it so if you Pre-ordered, or purchased in the first month, or some such (can’t remember [at least you know I legitimately give my opinion as, unlike my academic work, I don’t plaster this with references and proof, solely because, I know I’m right]) and because of this the buzz around the game must have multiplied tenfold. No one gave a damn about crackdown, we wanted access to the Halo 3 beta and some cartoony BS to keep us occupied until it was released.
I don’t how you all feel, I don’t know if you remember the end of 2005, but I do, vividly. Everyone like myself, with XBL and a Gamertag, was sitting there…rocking back and forth…waiting for Halo 3. Nothing had the rush of Halo 2 multiplayer on the consoles, it was intense.
Here we were waiting for the sequel, and what do we get to tide us over?
Some half-finished, free-roam, fuck-up of a game that you get hooked on because of it’s ease.
I recently did the time trials, solo, on the hardest difficulty. I can beat every boss in the game in under 5 minutes, individually and accumulatively, all 21 mob boss’ ceased to exist within 3 hours. On the PSYCHOTIC difficulty. Don’t get me wrong, I am a semi-professional gamer, I’ve made games, I’ve been in magazines and I’ve been to studios. But I’m not THAT good, Crackdown is a horrendous waste of time that came from a business ploy 6/7 years ago.
And don’t…just don’t get me started on the hideous visage of pointlessness that is Crackdown 2. Same map, different enemies, overpowered weapons/character and most of all NO STORY…ONLY ACTIVITIES!
Sorry for the profanity but what in THE fuck is the point in that?!?!? Seriously…you made money off a PoS (piece of shit) so in turn you use said profit to make a larger, more lacklustre, PoS…agh, rant over.
Oh…I realised when The Palisades sign flashes it just says ,”P—IS—-S” which is pretty fitting as this game is absolute piss.
