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 this perception for Crackdown 2.
The first episode of a five-part series debuted today, and it's worth a watch. I say that primarily because of the smooth-talking narrator, who fans of the original game will recognize. How can you not love that guy?
