I like this. Next gen Crackdown would be nice. I loved the first one, had no expectations because the Halo 3 beta alone sold me on it, but it was fantastic.

Crackdown 1 was brilliant fun. Forget the Halo 3 Beta, I played the crap out of it. I loved how your character/vehicles would dynamically change as you levelled up your stats. But Crackdown 2 was disappointing to me. I enjoyed the four player coop, but the levelling up was unsatisying, the environments were dull and so was the combat. I guess the DLC made things a little better. Not much though. But I'd love to see a next-gen Crackdown. Hopefully it won't be uninspired and repetitive like the second.

Nothing important to say here.

I thought both were awesome for different reasons. I'm thrilled to hear it may not be dead just yet. So thrilled in fact I just used the word thrilled, I never say thrilled. Weird.

Loved the 1st one. The 2nd was a let down. My only wish for the next gen would be the game levels up with you. In C2 once you leveled up it got pretty boring. Collecting orbs is fun for about 5 min, then I want to play something else

Me too. I only bought it for the halo 3 beta and just tried it out because I was bored. It was fantastic.

Still haven't played the second one though..

Crackdown 1 of many awesome 360 "Exclusives" people tent to forget.
Fun game, all the sequel needed were different kind of side missions or main missions, and change the boss fights.

The level system was great and getting those orbs were awesome fun and sometimes challenging like getting all the stars in Mario 64.

I didn't bother with part 2 cuz people said it's just the same map again. Also wasn't made by the ex gta guys.

I actually bought Crackdown for the game.
I hardly touched the beta, I still felt burned on Halo 2's disappointing campaign.

I'd played the demo and liked what I'd seen so I bought it. It was a flawed gem, sure, but it had a nice escalation of threat and such. It had that Assassins Creed 1 feel where you were undermining the power base of a bad guy before taking them on face to face. Or just being ballsy and taking them on first, then killing the underlings.

Got every achievement for it by the end, too.

If he was going to lie about a franchise returning, I don't think Crackdown would be that franchise.

Crackdown would be great in a world as big as Just Cause 2's.
