The original Crackdown swung onto store shelves in 2007 and immediately surprised me with its unique aesthetic, engaging power growth, and ahead-of-its-time nonlinear story progression. Imran recently got to play a few hours of the upcoming sequel, and came away with the impression that it’s keeping all those key features to the point of having a nostalgic feel.
Hanson joined me to peruse the footage and get a better idea of the game, which has been in development for five years at this point. Everything we saw looked like an updated version of the original Crackdown, and all that remains to be seen is if that’s still engaging all these years later. Enjoy the video up above for a look at the campaign, multiplayer, and an early boss fight!
