Overall: I'm back y'all! Yeah, y'all thought it was over but here I go again! Are those crickets I hear? So what I didn't miss you either! Anyway, Crackdown is why I have returned. I know most people bought this game for reasonsother than Crackdown and it's awesome concept of a game. So I will attempt to explain why you should keep Crackdown even after the Halo 3 beta is over. Crackdown is a great game in it's own right. It successfully utilizes an old genre and makes something new out of it. Trust me, you'll enjoy it as much as that time you first realized kissing a girl actually is possible.
Gameplay: Crackdown takes you an agent on a quest to rid your city of some of the worse vermin known to mankind. At first the task seems impossible however as the game progresses you gain superhuman powers that enable you to take hundreds of villians and their bosses. Your vehicles even become more advanced able to do things only James Bonds cars could dream of doing. There are a great deal of side missions, races, acheivements, that add to the stellar gameplay. My only gripe is the car races that are a pain in the !&%$@#* as you try not to kill the innocents as you drive as fast as you can. Your goal? Take over your city and in the process become Master Agent. As am I.
Graphics: The cel shaded type visuals are nice although many may not like it. I think the design is artistic and makes good use of the 360 hardware.
Sound: Nothing new to report sadly. The repetitive "prepare to die" cry by !&%$@#* near all of the baddies gave me plenty the Excedrin moment. Kill them quick so you don't go stark raving mad.
Suggestions: Change the races, especially the cars, don't make the orbs so !&%$@#* hard to find, and for Gods' sakes give those guys something else to say. The Ugly Truth: it's more than just your ticket to Halo 3.

Overall: A massive sprawling metropolis filled to the brim with crime and a failing police system. Sound good? Well it is. Your a new species of agent, using your advanced power take back Pacific City, using any way you want to.
Gameplay: The game play is endless, spending time building up all your skills is fun cause you just kill gangstas, and who doesn't loving pwnin' up the whitebread gangsta? I know I sure do! It doesn't stop there, soon as you complete the game you can regenerate the gangs at any point or any time! WAIT! It doesn't stop there, with a free DLC you get "the keys to the city" a DLC which gives you a menu allowing you to spawn anything in the game at any time, give your self any skills at any level, and basically times the fun by four.
Graphics: The graphics are superb! There isn't much I can say about it, because it is a 360 game and all 360 games are pretty beautiful. It offers great explosions, great physics engine, probably one of the best, it's so perfect that you can land onto someone and it will absorb some of the damage from your fall (if you fall more then like 30 feet, since you can jump like 15 feet on level one) and it will probably, no, no it WILL kill them. Don't forget kicking cars, explosions which will cause more explosions and will send bodys and objects flying. It's practically the greatest GTA-esc game ever made. Well it probably is the greatest, GTA started it all, and this really pays GTA some nice homage.
Sound: The sound is perfect! Even if you have a older TV, it still sounds great. You can hear everything from the hundreds of cars driving to the individual foot step of the civilians on the street.
Suggestions: I do have a few things, I would really like to see even more DLC, you can never have enough DLC, also I really would like the ability's to go past 4 stars ability's, the bar goes to five but you don't get stronger. Could use that, even if you get so strong your a god, well then so what? It's more fun! Of course with the Keys to the City DLC you can sort of do that. Keep on keepin' on.
