GSY Video Xbox One PC

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.

OK this must be the worst looking game I have seen this generation, everything is beyond bad. And those horrible animations, and the enemies feel look dummies no impact when being shot. They should have canned this garbage...

Well maybe not the actual worst but certainly terrible looking for how long it took to come out and the amount of money Microsoft would have spent over that 5 year development time. And yes, the animations are horrendous.

And it being cel shaded does not excuse this since Gravity Rush 2 was cel shaded and had stunning character animations, especially since it is about running, jumping and literally throwing a character around a map.

It's pretty clear the only reason this game wasn't shit-canned a year into development is because MS wanted to avoid anymore backlash over cancelling games and shuttering studios. Especially after already scrapping fable and scalebound etc. Plus it reeks of stubbornness regarding the "power of the cloud". Kept the project alive so they could turn around and say "look, you see...this is what we wanted for all games and it's amazing" well guess what? It took years of delays, the destruction is downgraded to hell and the MP is garbage...totally worth it!

Gotta love Microsoft's Windows Store.

Install the game without any indication of remaining download time - still lacking this most basic of features for downloads, something almost everything has nowadays. And this shit is like this since this shitty store launched, but apparently it's too expensive to add a timer to it.

Then when the game is finally installed and you get to the title screen that asks you to "press a button", no matter what you press on a X360 controller, keyboard or mouse, the game never goes further. Looking at Crackdown's Reddit, there's many with the problem and the solution is to uninstall and re-download the game...

Why can't I just Check for File Integrity like on Steam? Or why doesn't it have an official forum for support like Steam has? Because it's the shitty Microsoft Windows Store.

What pisses me off is that I had this same issue with Recore: Definitive Edition, and that was 1 year and a half ago. Microsoft just doesn't bother to update or add any features to this damn store. At this point, if they don't care at all about the store, why not just release it on Steam and be done with it!?!

Then people ask why so many don't want to use Microsoft Windows Store, Origin, Uplay and/or Epic Store, because while Steam isn't perfect, it's still 1 million times better than any of these shitty stores.

PS. Everytime you move the mouse, even if slightly, the game lags like hell. Plenty of videos showing that the framerate tanks hard when that happens. How in the actual fuck didn't anyone fix this???

Yep just played it on xbox one . I love crackdown 1 , but this is really bad.
This is not from the original developer.
Doesnt feel or play like the same game .
Crackdown 1 , you can aim at a object or person and and choose which part you want to aim at
.
Crackdown 3 just auto aims to the middle of the object
Really crappy gameplay

In Crackdown 3 you can still aim at the part of the body you want, but you need to improve your shooting skills first. As far as I can remember it was the same in the original.

Mine was so bad it literally froze every minute or so, but apparently that happens when you don't update Windows. After everything was up to date the freezing disappeared completely and never had any stuttering or framedrops.
