I'll keep hoping, though; there has to be one great sequel before this generation ends...

Assassin's Creed II
Just Cause 2
Mass Effect 2
Modern Warfare 2
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Anyway, good review. The more I hear about Crackdown 2, the more amazed I am that the game was reviewed as well as it was. (Not that it got great reviews, but still.) Just out of curiosity, have you played either Infamous or Prototype? Both are games that I feel follow the Crackdown formula but feel significantly more substantial; I played both of them before I tried the original Crackdown and I was pretty underwhelmed as a result. It's ridiculous that Ruffian thinks it can get away with such a half-assed rehash considering the circumstances.

I've never played any of those games or their predecessors, surprisingly. I was only implying games that I've played, but I'm sure you kinda knew that and took it as an opportunity to list fun games XD. Maybe I should play them some day...

And yeah, I'm shocked at the high praise this game got. It's almost like they gave the game to reviewers that never played the original game. Even then, the ratings and praise are still disturbingly high.

Thanks for reading and commenting on the review, too!

I heard somewhere that the game could easily have been sold as a $15 DLC. If that's true -- and it certainly sounds plausible -- then releasing this as a full-priced game is pretty despicable.

Of course, I haven't actually played the game and I really don't plan to, so I'm just going by what I've heard here.

As someone who has completed both games, I can say that is very much plausible. More than plausible, I should say.
