Crackdown is all about blasting everything in your path. The first game is considered a cult classic and has changed the way the destruction is seen in the gaming industry. Pacific City is dominated by crime and gangsters control the streets. Three powerful gangs took the once great hostage of the metropolis, and the police proved helpless in their efforts to regain control. Only the genetically improved soldiers of the Agency can provide citizens with a sense of hope.
The game features an open sandbox environment where players are free to explore the city and decide the best tactics for every bombastic scenario. The title recently joined the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program, which allows gamers to try out the Xbox 360 and the original Xbox games on their new console. However, Microsoft did not stop there. The company has upgraded the resolution to Xbox One X so it looks absolutely stunning and crisp on a 4K monitor.
Crackdown is an old game and many customers may hesitate to pick it up. If you do not have the title, now is your chance to get it for free. Yes, you heard that right, for free! Currently, the original Crackdown is listed as free on the Xbox Store. It is unclear if this is a mistake or a promotion behind the X018 event in Mexico City over the weekend.
Whatever the reason, you should definitely download it now. We download the game for free and it works perfectly. I hope this is not a mistake, because we are enjoying it very much and we do not want the license to be revoked.
