Damn, Days Gone isn't until next year? Shit's taking forever.

As for Crackdown 3? I played 2. I still haven't blocked it from memory. I can't recall the last time I relied on reviews for a game, but C3 will be the one.

I thought the trailer was actually pretty good.

Yeah was it just my blind ass or did it look a tad better?

This somehow still looks bad and uninteresting.

Yeah, that looks really ugly and not fun. I'm amazed that it still is so bad looking after all these delays.

No way I'd buy it. But it's on Game Pass and I guess I'll give it a shot there.

Eh, those games never looked great anyway. It is amazing that it took so long for this to come out, though.

Buy Crackdown 3 or a 6M Xbox Game Pass and receive a Limited Edition Crackdown 3 steelbook.

Sounds pretty underwhelming, which is unfortunate given all the delays. Oh well, at least they can finally put it out and move on to the next project.

Why most people are going to be playing it on MS Gamepass

Reviews are not unexpectedly mediocre.

62 on Metacritic. https://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox...kdown-3?ref=hp

I remember when this series was supposed to be great. I’ll play it on Gamepass for Terry Crews. That’s it lol.

Yikes. Does not sound good at all. Not like I'm using Game Pass for anything else (besides FH4), but that's disappointing to hear.

That sucks to hear that they took out the destructible environments, since they were hyping that since the beginning. "The power of the cloud!"

EDIT: In fact, here is some video even showing it off, from 3 years ago....

Re: Crackdown 3 - Feb. 2019 (until the next delay, anyway)

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this game had auto download itself onto my XBX without my input. It was ready to play at 9 pm tonight. Unfortunately the game is ass so far. Looks TERRIBLE. The character models are so simplistic and the textures are so bland. This looks like a second rate last gen title except for the lighting which is quite good. IGN is right: the game is way too basic and easy. Auto lock and pinpoint accuracy. I know MS is into gaming for the disabled, but I swear a blind man could beat the shooting segments of this game.
It was supposed to be their big highly anticipated console exclusive, but forget competing with Spider-Man, this game can't hold a candle to Just Cause 4 so far.

Re: Crackdown 3 - Feb. 2019 (until the next delay, anyway)

Yeah, reviews are pretty bad. I will still play because I enjoyed the previous 2 games. After playing this, I will have basically got my $ worth out of Gamepass. This and Tomb Raider have paid for the service. Anything else is just gravy.

Sigh. Looks like my X-Box One will continue to collect dust. I was really looking forward to turning that thing on for the first time since 2017 but those reviews are so meh.

Re: Crackdown 3 - Feb. 2019 (until the next delay, anyway)

So, Crackdown 2 might be one of the worst games I've ever played. It is sitting at a 70% on vgrankings. By comparison, Crackdown 3 is sitting at 60%.

Ouch.

Yes, you are fucking hilarious.., like always... lol

If you liked Crackdown, this is basically a revamped version of that.

​​​​​​ I had an issue with the whole "cloud rendering" hype years ago so I am not surprised there but removing that aspect entirely is ridiculous

Re: Crackdown 3 - Feb. 2019 (until the next delay, anyway)

I fired this up yesterday. Holy shit last gen looking game! Seriously, this look as though it is an Xbox 360 game. I'm only about 30 mins into it, so I can't comment on much, but Decker is absolutely spot on. The auto aiming is a joke. You just let go of the trigger after each kill and it auto locks on the next guy.

I played about an hour. I think that's enough for me.
