E3: Crackdown & Mass Effect images

E3: Crackdown & Mass Effect images

It's been a rushy week, and it seems like we failed to post images from two of the biggest games on Xbox 360. Bah! Here are some images of Microsoft's two games Crackdown and Mass Effect - with some in-game HUD images from the latter.

Mass Effect sure looks fantastic. It looks like you're really inside a Star Wars movie. You've gotta love Bioware for their fantastic games.
By the way, those Alan Wake images are old and I even think I've seen them before on this site.

Yeah, you're right. They are removed now, thanks for the heads-up.

Mass Effect looks incredible. Finally an RPG from Bioware that isn't based on the Star Wars universe! So now they have absolute creative freedom.

Some of those Alan Wake images are new actually. Well, new to me at least. It's difficult to notice because they look so much like the previous shots of landscape. They're all shorts taken from the same area of the game (unless that's the ONLY area, but I'd doubt that).

Crackdown looks ok, its a very clean and polished style at least, and I hope it doesn't turn out to be too much like GTA...

everybody seems to forget jade empire...it was a great game and proved that bioware could still sell many games with their own ip

Mass Effect looks indeed ver scharp, Alan wake i dont know how that is going to play out i hope a bit like the max payne games but with better story,
Crakdown it looks like its got potential to be really good and the developers arent rushing it so that can be a good thing.

i have al three of these games on my wish list so i really hope they do wel

What, finally? They've only made one Star Wars based game. It's Knights of the Old Republic. KotOR - The Sith Lords was developed by Obsidian.

And yes, Mass Effect looks ·$%$%&$/ awesome.

Mass Effect just looks so good and we all know it will play great too :)

Bioware...the Carlsberg of the gaming world.

You're right, I totally forgot about that. What I really meant to point out though was the comparisons this game would obviously be drawn against KOTOR, but this time, it's not Star Wars. I thought KOTOR was a very innovative game, but the only thing that put me off slighty was the universe it was set in. I want more edgy, gritty, Sci-Fi, and this looks to fit the bill.

I thought neverwinter nights and baldurs gate is among the best rpgs ever made,atleast pc gamer thinks that ;)

I'm eagerly waiting for a Mass Effect gameplay video. It looks so fantasticaly conceived that I can't help wanting more of it right now.

A friend of mine at E3 told me that Cradown (yes Crackdown) was one of the coolest games around. He says screenshots doesn't do it justice and that the gameplay is really fun.

Mass Effect looks even better than before! Awesome detail, great bloomlighting and selfshadowing. Action/shooting as well as RPG. Totally on my wishlist.

I found this link a day or 2 ago and even though It's a very low quality video, It still looks very impressive. It's only 23 seconds, but it's the only footage I've found of the presentation.

I'm glad they had the soft skins implemented, I'm not really into that whole shiny bright skin thing. Mass effect so far loks like the best looking game for the 360.
Commented on 2006-05-14 14:10:12
I think crackdown will be a killer app its a feeling i have ;) & Mass effect will for sure put the 360 on the map as a rpg's console. These are the game's that make or brake a console!! coz Mass effect & crackdown plus may others are the 360's first party game's so lets hope they do well !!!
Commented on 2006-05-14 14:32:04
these 2 games are the reason I got my 360 awsome!!!!!!!!!!!
Commented on 2006-05-14 14:43:29
The video you showed of crackdown plus the video on marketplace made crackdown a killer app for me.

Mass Effect was a killer app from day 1.

This game looks totally fantastic. Great art direction. I'm surprised they didn't release a trailer for it at E3 this year.

mass effect is the best looking game i've ever seen. in fact it looks even better than some CGI-movies i've seen
Commented on 2006-05-14 17:36:24
Look better than toy story.
Commented on 2006-05-14 18:39:27
That is beyond beautiful! Mass Effect has shot up to my most wanted list period!

Its insane that the 360 runs a game that looks this great so flawlessly seriously guys it looks incredible. The game performance wise could ship right now it was awesome at E3.


I also get the feeling crackdown could be a killer app I already know mass effect is :P

The G4tv dude said that after getting some behind-closed-doors hands-on with Crackdown, it is second only to Spore as the best thing he saw at E3.
