We start the week with a video of Crackdown 3 in 4K HDR.

Until davton finds the time to capture some Xbox One X gameplay and a new HDR video, here's some 4K action in the PC version of Crackdown 3. Despite it's many shortcomings, the game remains fun to play, but we find it hard to forgive its 2007 design - and its stuttering problems...
Update: As our videos had severe sound issues, we recorded some new 4K gameplay with extreme graphics settings.

To say that Crackdown 3's development has been paved with difficulties is what you can call a huge understatement. The game will be officially released in a few hours, but we've had a bit of time to play it already and, though it's too soon to tell you if it has a bit of potential, its approach to open world titles seems a bit dated to say the least. Maybe fans won't mind, but it's to see what this third installment adds to the 2007 formula. To make it worse, the PC version runs quite terribly, as it suffers from stuttering issues on all kinds of rigs, including ours (GTX 1080 Ti and i9 9900K at the time of capture). According to Digital Foundry, it is very unlikely that it can be fixed one day, so talk about cherry on the cake. Check out the 2 following videos and let us know what you think, especially if you've had a chance to try the game.

Crackdown is one of my favorite games of the past generation, and even Crackdown 2 despite its numerous issues had left me satisfied. But Crackdown 3 for some reason doesn't make me want to play it all, despite all of Terry Crews efforts in this trailer. Let's up the latest delay (February 2019) will help make this game a bit more appealing.

If Microsoft had decided to get me not to buy Crackdown 3 (I'm a big fan of the series), I don't think they could have done any better than this trailer. Maybe it will please others, but personally I hope it's not really representative of the game's core gameplay and atmosphere.

The first look video of Crackdown 3, which debuted during Gamescom, shows how the title handles mayhem and destruction.
