Overall I really enjoyed the game, there a few minor quibbles in terms of the guided nature of the flow and the fact that towards the end you really do realise that you cant really go too wrong. There are not too many consequences to making poor choices either but I wouldn’t let this put you off what is essentially a very good game.
Despite the fairly cheap price and the fact that I did actually enjoy playing the game for the short time it took me to play the lot I cant really recommend it strongly to anyone other than the real achievement hunters out there, especially when you will likely see it reduced even further within a short time.
If you like shooters in any way shape or form I’d totally recommend this, even if you don’t like shared world shooters this is perfectly playable throughout the campaign in solo but it definitely becomes more fun if you get a little squad together and roam the streets of Washington together, the depth of the content here is vast and there is a huge amount of enjoyment to be had in the world, looking at Ubisoft’s pedigree with Games as a Service this one looks like it will run for a very long time.
Overall this is a competent and enjoyable tactical strategy game, the story is good even if the missions can become a little samey, the game isn’t going to live up to the much more polished games in the genre but given the price difference this is well worth the money.
If you really like puzzlers then it will have something for you but be prepared for the odd frustration. And also bear in mind whether you will be playing this solo or linked up with a friend, the latter will probably keep your blood pressure down a touch.
Overall there is a lot of fun to be had with Crackdown 3 but it is slightly mindless fun and won’t stimulate you a great deal, its just a shame that this has been in development for so long everyone expected more from it, including me, just switch off your brain and enjoy the mindless fun while it lasts because you probably won’t come back to it for a long time.
