I've been buying a lot of 360 titles recently (games I'd previously owned, and games I never got around to trying). What's Crackdown 2 like? I quite enjoyed the first, but never took up the sequel.

It was made by a different team than the first game and wasn't anywhere near as good.

I loved Crackdown 2, and in moving the focus away from the horrible driving of the first game they massively improved it. It's a shame they used almost the exact same map as the first game, but there's plenty there to keep you occupied, especially if you have a team of people to mess around with.

The wingsuit was a great addition to the game but the mutant stuff was rubbish and most of the changes they made to the city layout were detrimental.

P3 was ok with the release date announced at E3, presumably the game was ready to go and yet now he thinks the level of quality is not there?

Mmmmmm, what went wrong in a few short months?

3-4 devs needing time to get all the gooseberry fool together? Look what happened the MC Collection.

Got to be honest. I look at the frankly stellar line up of Xbox 360 exclusives in my own collection and think "what the strawberry float happend since then?"

I suspect that MS are focusing their development resources on stuff for the Xbox OX. That machine will be their opportunity to wrestle back gamers from Sony.

Edit: Nick has setup a specific thread to discuss MS Game Studios and MS exclusives.

Crackdown 3 just got an age rating in Brazil for both Xbox One and PC -

MS were still saying Spring a month ago so maybe a "Play now on Gamepass" at their E3 Briefing.

That would leave their Q4 offerings a bit slight though. Unless of course they have another surprise lined up.

Yeah definitely think this will hit Gamepass during E3. Possibly the last announcement.

In what kind of state will it hit Gamepass is the question though. Gamepass is a sound idea, but I'd hate it to become a platform for Microsoft to launch incomplete, bare bones video games under the premise they'll be finished over time.

Halo 5 and Gears 4 aren’t bare bones...?

Sea of Thieves is so....

Crackdown hasn’t looked healthy since day 1 reveal, let alone the issues behind the scenes so people have concerns it will be game pass fodder.

Hope not, everyone knows Microsoft needs an exclusive hit.

I obviously meant looking forward at yet to be released titles, not those that have already been out a while.

But be honest, you knew that was what I meant.

1 game being released with a lack of content doesn't make a trend. State of Decay 2 looks like a 20-30hr game and Crackdown 3 will probably launch with a Campaign & hopefully a cracking MP. Hope it's out in July as E3 is only a couple of weeks after SOD2 release.

I personally think State of Decay 2 will be the better Exclusive, but I think the first one is amazing. I can’t tell you how excited I am for it.

I worry that Crackdown 3 will be ropey to be honest, also the cloud stuff in mp could be stunning if it works. The previews of it a couple of years ago were very positive, I think it may roll out after release as it would buckle on Day One.

Tbh, I don't care about the MP aspect, I'll likely get cracking on the campaign though in co-op.

Rumours on the delay -

Heard the reason for the game being delayed was the Campaign (wasn't meeting quality standards by MS) and not the cloud-based multiplayer as we all thought. Take this with a pinch of salt since I've just heard that from a couple of users through DM on Era and Twitter and I haven't been able to get further proof.


Jez from Windows Central -
Heard campaign too, rather than multiplayer, but I also heard the delay was really good for the game, and quality has improved a huge amount from last summer. Time will tell.

I also heard from a few ppl that the Brazilian Crackdown 3 ratings board listing wasn't real (it's easy to submit false listings there apparently), idk if that means Crackdown 3 will come later than expected, but I wouldn't expect a huge degree of overlap with State of Decay 2.

The new name of the game for Microsoft is spreading out releases as much as possible to incentivize rolling Game Pass subscriptions.
