Crackdown is really interesting to me. The first one got on my radar because the demo for it was so much fun, and then when I bought and played the full version I loved it. It was just zany and insane super soldier action, and jumping buildings and chucking cars and whatnot was stupid, good fun. Then the second one introduced that weird zombie aesthetic and apart from that it got no buzz, and since everyone seemed to hate it I passed on it too.
The third Crackdown seems like a return to form from the first one, but for some reason I’m only mildly interested (if that) in it. As fun as Crackdown was, it definitely felt like a surface level of fun, the cake of videogames. Very entertaining in the moment, and memorable enough that I still think of it fondly years later, but never managing to make a deep enough impression to make me say “I’m a real fan of this game and cannot wait for a sequel.” I hope it does well though - it was one of the most unique titles I’ve ever played.
