Crackdown 2 DLC is broken, don't buy it

Ruffian Games has given players another reason not to play Crackdown 2 today, as its just-released DLC pack, the Toy Box add-on, seems to only take things away from the game. Namely, its ability to function. Ruffian has pointed to a po...

Crackdown 2's licensed tracks, remixes revealed

Here's why mutants are in Crackdown 2

Not that you really need to explain zombie/mutant/freak outbreaks in this day and age, but the inclusion of them in Crackdown 2 seems odd. Out of place? Not at all -- these monstrosities tend to mesh nicely with open-world games. Still, th...

Back when Crackdown launched back in 2007, many players' response to the title was to turn it on and go directly into the Halo 3 beta. However, once that was done, and players were left with a $60 disc, what was discovered wa...   read

Crackdown 2 the latest game to get its own miniseries

Under normal circumstances, "Crackdown" and "miniseries" are two words that don't seem like a natural fit. Do you remember the story of the first game? It was a glorified Mega Man tale. I guess Ruffian Games and Microsoft want to change th...

No playable women in Crackdown 2 in order to save memory
