Downgrades happen all the time in video games, but this is a pretty scandalous example. The assertion that this is just more Crackdown seems to be false; it's just an inferior version of a decade old game. :?

I was really shocked by that video. What the strawberry float happened with this game?

To actually create a mechanically inferior game 10 years later... :lol: :fp:

It would be interesting to hear the "behind the scenes" story about development of this game. It's pretty clear that the "cloud computing" objectives were spectacular but it appears that none of these goals made it into the release version.

I've not played the game and, whilst it seems at least to be fun, it does look like the game was put together pretty cheaply in comparison to that initial vision.

I haven't got around to playing the campaign yet, but Wrecking Zone is absolutely dreadful. When you finally manage to find a game (and that's very rare, since no-one seems to be playing it) it's a clunky bug-ridden mess. How this managed to be released in this state I have no idea.

Finished the campaign now and just merrily tooling about tidying up orbs. I don’t really understand the criticism. The game isn’t revolutionary but what it does, it does well. I personally think it looks great on my X too although it does get a bit loud.

I know people who used to work at some of the studios involved and, from what I've heard, it wasn't a money issue. They simply couldn't get the tech working, and the tech was leading the game rather than the other way around.

Wouldn't surprise me if the CD3 we got was started and finished in the last 18 months.

Exactly what I was thinking; it has the feel of a big project which wasn't working out and so was re-started and finished pretty quickly.

It does still look to be fun - indeed, as hamm has verified! - but I wonder if the planned cloud-assisted destruction will, once the tech is in place, return for a future game?
