Crackdown 2 feels uninspired and rushed, and it certainly doesn't feel like a full sequel.

What hurts the most about Crackdown 2 is that I would have been content with a simple, by-the-numbers sequel with a few token improvements. But this isn’t even a Xeroxed sequel; it’s more like a photocopy of a photocopy. The structure is largely the same, but some of the colors have faded, and parts of the picture are missing altogether.

Crackdown 2 boasts enough exploration-fueled action to entertain despite its many flaws.

That world, by the way, is the same one you already explored in Crackdown, if a touch more run down. Tack that on to the loads of comically plain textures and frequent slowdown and you've got a graphical package that's doing nothing to alleviate the sense of déjà vu.

An interesting experiment? Sure. But the changes to the game design have all but removed the most-fun parts while emphasizing the game’s weaknesses. Whoops.

This game was good. Not bad, and certainly not great. But then again, the first one was an average game that got it's fame by being attached to the Halo 3 beta. But what really messes this game up was the fact that a different developer altogether did this one.
