This review is from: Crackdown Xbox 360 Game
Pros: Extremely impressive game. This game offers a lot of replay value, with the co-op (online and system linking), levels of difficulty, collecting orbs and stat system, and finally the downloadable content. The sandbox aspect of this game I found to be even more amazing than Grand Theft Auto 4, because of the ability to traverse through the air as easily as on the ground. Also, the game has an amazing draw distance, so you can see very far (and the update also allowed players to see explosions from a distance). Because of this, there is also a rare or almost non-existent textural problems you would see in GTA IV. The graphics are well-done, that is if you're a fan of cell-shading. The game play is intense and more-so playing cooperatively.
Cons: The overall story of this game is a bit lacking, as it feels like a checklist and things you have to complete before moving on. The driving aspects in this game feels as if you're driving on ice, and the camera angle of driving doesn't pan well around the car. From what I can make of it, it is just like Burnout Paradise (using the same engine ,Renderware) in that you can only look at your car from the left or right. Also, civilians in this game seem to be more of a bother because running into one is just like running into a brick wall, and are easy to get into your way (such as battling an enemy with a crowd running through the gunfire). Tips also appear a lot, and cannot be turned off. Overall, with the lack of story, the game seems to end soon.
Other Thoughts: I have not tried co-op yet, but I've seen what it is like. I do not know how seamless it is when you join or host a Crackdown game. The downloadable content (free) actually offers a lot, and the premium one is not such a bad buy, considering how the purchase of Crackdown is fairly cheap. There is also Crackdown 2 to look forward too.READ FULL REVIEW
