Crackdown gets good reviews
The reviews are starting to trickle in, and if early words are any suggestion, Crackdown’s a winner.
Here’s what IGN had to say about Crackdown before giving it an 8/10:
So, you know when you start hearing the sounds of a videogame in your sleep? In my case, it was the throbbing wub-wub of a hidden blue orb, stashed somewhere deep in my subconsciousness. Thats the sound of a great game.
Eurogamer follows with praise of their own, before handing out a 9/10:
The difference between GTA and Crackdown isnt that you used to be a villain and now youre a cop. Its that you are the Incredible Hulk of cops. You start off a complete weakling, except you can already leap 15 feet, throw cinderblocks the length of a cricket square, and regenerate your health in-between absorbing hails of bullets. No wonder nobody messes with you. Well, everybody messes with you, because theyre programmed to, but you like it that way. It gives you an excuse to kick them off the tops of buildings.
That says loads about Crackdown that not many could. After playing the demo, though, it’s not too much of a surprise to see such good scores.
If anything, these scores just get me more hyped for it. It’s going to be a long wait until the 20th…
