Damn that has to be frustrating as hell!
Not really. In the end it is only a couple of acheivments not earnd.

If it happened in something heavily story based, like Hellblade, then it would have been.

Ah ok, yeah I've never been one that cared about achievements or trophies anyway so that wouldn't mean a thing to me, I'd just be mad that I got to a certain point and a bug that shouldn't be there is stopping me from completing it.

I'm enjoying it but I'm playing it in 2 hour chunks everything is too similar to be playing it longer than that.

Not a bad game worth saving my game pass free trial for sure but I don't think I would have bought it had that not been a thing

This game is actually a lot more challenging than the original.

The AI isn't super amazing, but they can f*** you up in certain zones.

I'll say that once you play it for a while you definitely get in the platforming "zone" with the controls. It really is a fun game and does provide something unique to the Xbox library.

In terms of scores I have about as hard a time seeing how someone could give this as a 9 as a 5. This really is a 6-8 game, depending on personal preference.

Gonna download and play this weekend, will probably try to beat too. Haven't really looked at the thread in a while, can you have friends join your game for Co-Op or is it with randos? I remember this being questioned before the game launched.

2p coop, haven't tried it though. Pretty short game, or at least feels like it.

Plays great when you get triple jump and double dash. Controls better than most platformers (3d Mario's included).

Yeah I really like the controls and feel it should get more praise for them.

Played a couple hours and it's fun. Nothing special at all, not a clusterf***, just a good time.

Game is fun. Exactly what I wanted, though I wish I could kick cars. Already agility level 3, can't stop collecting orbs

Did any of you guys hear the story about how the villain was about to survive from crackdown 1?

Crackdown 3 is really growing on me. Its not a bad game but its not some epic masterpiece either. I could easily give the campain a 7 or 8 /10 so far.

Agreed. It's growing on me too. It's crazy how much is going on on screen at once with explosions, gunfire, and such.

Agreed. My score of this game has grown as I got deeper into it now.

The game improves a ton once you expand your skills and get the bigger guns. I remember the original being similar. Now that I'm going rooftop to rooftop and not clawing at ledges and with way bigger weapons it is a blast.

Funny I came in to say how much fun I'm having with the game and all the previous comments are saying the same.

I'm on level 5 for everything but driving and it's just pure chaotic destruction it's so much fun, doesn't take long to level up either. Easy 7.5 for me for the campaign. Throwing stuff around has never been so much fun, I just spent 20 minutes throwing dead enemies off rooftops at cars below.

That lock down the city gets pretty crazy when every gang is out to kill you.

They are times I had to hide and get health.

I’ve finally settled on this game as a solid 7. Understand the complaints. The 4’s and 5’s are really hard to justify. Feel like there was some bandwagoning based on expectations. Crackdown doesn’t live up to expectations. The multiplayer is one of the worst multiplayer games I’ve played anywhere this gen. The campaign is solid fun. If you want longevity, turn up the difficulty. It balances pretty well on the 2nd highest difficulty. Nether a grind not too easy.

Don't sleep on the MP. Once it "clicks" it really clicks. Nothing out there like it and its SUPER fun and bombastic.

Ok I figured out why I couldn’t do the snake boss. I wasn’t ready for it.
