I would suggest getting as many green orbs (agility boost) as possible. I just jumped off a building (10 stories) landed on a bad guys car and crushed everyone inside (I know sick..but it was freaken cool). You can level build different area's.

I got it Friday late afternoon and had to shut down at 3am because my eyes were too sore to see straight.

ahem Sorry about that. I meant to say... I think Crackdown is an utterly spiffing game, which I would recommend to anyone who enjoys enforcing the law, helping citizens cross the road..... AND ROCKET LANUCHERS!!!

I only enjoy keeping the "Peace Keepers" from actively shooting me
that's about it. It is kind of funy when you accidentally kill a civy
and the moderator gives you a stern talking too.

Ive had it for about 2 days and while it is a blast im already getting sick of it.I got a funny feeling that when youve beaten it there will be bugger all else to do.But im not into xbox live so i could be missing out there?

I bought Crackdown and FF12 on the same day, and I've only been on Crackdown twice since. It's not a bad game, but it's not great either, it gets repetitive fast and there isn't a lot of variety to any of it. Still pretty decent to just pick up and have a bit of fun with though...

FF12 is a different thread entirely.......

posted on Feb, 25 2007 @ 09:19 AM
I'm thinking about pulling the PS2 and getting FF12. I thought I'd be finished with FF since the (ugh) ONLINE version came out but 12 looks like a good ol' fashioned single player game

And I still like jumping from roof top to roof top. I've found 273 agility orbs and am a 4* on jumping.

Yeah the game could use a few things, like:

More bad guys, I like the fact that they made the next group the Volk bosses a little different than just show up and bam. Like this guy in the oil refinery who you had to blow up a few things to get him out of his fortress before you could actually kill him. All the while every bad guy is shooting missles at you.

Better peace keepers. Who starts shooting at a guy who just landed on a car, or accidentally kick a civy. That annoying. They should only attack
if you go nuts and kill alot of people.

PS I really like that song plays when ever you pause..It has that futuristic feel

Its a pretty good game, not Gears of War on anything but some fun to pass the time till Mass Effect

In the end in a month or so I will probably trade this in for positive credit towards "Mass Effect"

That was my plan as well.Beat it then trade it in and get Mass Effect.Must admit juggling people off tall buildings with the rocket launcher is very addictive.

I've maxed out all my abilities but driving. So I can't go off on Civy's if I feel the need.
I just wish their were more than 5 Homing rockets in that last launcher.
The first time I tried I did it out of frustration at this guy who kept kicking my butt.
He knocked me off a building twice, I finally unloaded five rockets at him, I tell you that was satisfying watching him get knock towards the moon. lol

By the way I'm up to 465/500 agility orbs and am starting to get the feeling that I won't find them all. :bash::bash::bash:

Oh, wow. This sounds great. Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm buying this thing online right now.

If you get it in a store you've got a chance you might be able to get a Halo 3 Beta copy.

A good place to get your driving skills up is the beach on the south of Los Muertos' Island. Get in the SUV and drive over the ramps on the beach houses.

At the lab of the super intelligence Ninja guys. I can't think of their name. The toughest last group after the Volk. I just drove over ran over the two scientist girls out front. Stopped gave a rocket shot to a spot I knew had a Rocket sniper to take him out, got back in and ran over people near the front gate. When my car blew up, there were conviently 5 bad guy cars just sitting there to get in and run over the rest. It's a pain but I did it once and My points were going up 4-6 at a time. I maxed it out with a couple hours of fun.

About the game. Its too bad there are not more bad groups to take out. There should be five or six bad groups. That would take longer.

Jumping from building to building is still cool

Yeah too bad I don't have my 360 set up for on line. My house is not user friendly. I would like to try the beta version but I have to stop at other places to get online.

Did you see the ending yet?


Well what happens is that there's totally this whole thing about the guy who is that thing and then the thing blow up and then theres this other thing for this woman who's this guy kinda thing....

I'm not gonna spoilt it for ya!

**Dont read unless you want to know anything about ending*******

How about the NWO ending.

That's all I will say. Its too bad that the game didn't let us take on the real bad guys. That would have pushed the game into a new level of greatness.

You can't start over with out making a brand new on-line sign on name.

What's the deal with that????

I just bored so i've been trying to find all the orbs

I'm up to 489 agility orbs
I'm up to 211 hidden orbs.

So I have read that CrackDown is a good game. I am considering buying CrackDown. I want to play the Halo 3 multiplay Beta. Are they still offering the Beta test for Halo 3?? Anyhow I cannot wait until Halo 3. Since the programmers have more hardware to work with, they will be able to pump out extreme graphics with few glitches and ultimately zero lag. I have pre-ordered the Legendary version of Halo 3, $100USD! Sweet! Anyhow...let me know about the Halo 3 Beta!

You have to actually keep the copy of "Crackdown", once it comes out on 360 download. You can download it, then everytime you want to play it, it will be an option when you put the "Crackdown" disk in. If you aint got the disk you can't play it. I think I will just wait for the actual Halo 3 game to come out. Besides I'm trading "Crackdown" in for Mass Effect as soon as that comes out.

posted on Mar, 6 2007 @ 03:48 PM
I probably wont trade much of my games in. I used to be a manager at GameStop before I got my IT job. I am still in college by the way... Anyhow, they rape you on the price, I mean it's only good for the Buy 2 get one free deal or trade 2 get one free. Looks like I'm getting Crackdown!!!

posted on Mar, 7 2007 @ 02:45 PM
Crackdown deserves more credit than I gave it, it is a lot of fun, but still lacking in some areas. There's a lot to improve, but they have got the fun factor down, so perhaps we'll see a sequel one day.

One of my main gripes is the sound, you can't turn down the effects! I like to listen to music on the xbox with most games, but it's not really possible on crackdown because the guns and cars get too loud.

I'm hoping for a sequel that makes it the game it could have been, but as it is, it's still worth buying.

If I could turn that up and the effects off, I would have.


1. Can't replay the game from start with out changing my sign on name.

2. You should be able to strap a car on your back so you can jump from the Shi-gen towers. I tried to drive up but got stopped at the bells.

3. The company cars blow up way too easily.

4. The last bad guy should have been the NWO police state. Maybe in the sequal the guy can free the people from the state,etc.

5. That the cops would fight you to the death over anything. You bump a car and they are out shouting at you. Aren't we on the same friggen side?

6. There should have been sharks in the ocean that you could jump up and kill.

7. You should have been able to swim down to the bottom of the water.

8. The certain buildings that had ledges that you could see grabbing a hold of and yet could never grab a hold off as you fall to your death really irked me.

All and All I really enjoyed it minus these things.
