Critic Reviews for Crackdown 3

Crackdown 3's mediocre, collectible-heavy campaign and poor Wrecking Zone multiplayer are rarely satisfying busywork.

No Recommendation / Blank

One of the great open-world templates fails to come into focus in this well-meaning, if embattled, sequel.

Repetitive and middling, Crackdown 3 is a totally average open-world game that doesn't give itself a way to stand out.

A tragic end to Crackdown 3's long and painful journey, with an unremarkable campaign mode and a multiplayer that is a disaster in terms of tech and design.

Crackdown 3 is bonkers chaotic fun but also a case of wasted potential. The series deserved an iterative revival but instead, we have the tried-and-tested Crackdown backbone with remastered visuals and a touch more chaos, sadly squandering the promise of its few interesting additions in the process

Crackdown 3's campaign is like a thawed-out relic from more than a decade ago. Multiplayer's environmental destruction is interesting in concept, but its bare-bones nature keeps it from being more than a curiosity

Crackdown 3's campaign is short on new ideas and relies too heavily on its core loop of collecting orbs and throwing heavy objects around.
