Man it must suck to be a Xbox fan nowadays. Sony keeps nailing it with their exclusives, while MS keeps producing these piles of steaming poo.

But this is the poo I wanted, not another story driven game where I walk around for hours hearing dialogue.

Hence, I think there is room in the market for a game like Crackdown 3 even if the critics don't like it and I'll play other games the critics like as well.

Not sure if I want to take the plunge on this one. Too many great games to waste valuable time on mediocre.

Don't you have Game Pass? That's what I'm going to play it on. I'm not buying it.

Was tempted to get it but I have like 400+ XBO games. I'd be paying for games I don't have time to play.

Nah, it's pretty great actually, fantastic exclusives, game pass and lots of retro released has made the X1X one of my favorite game systems of all time (Sega Saturn reigns supreme 🙂).

Aside from the Sega Saturn part (I never owned one) I totally agree. Time and Time again, I've stated that my PS4 Pro sits less than a foot away from my Xbox One X. My Xbox is still my primary gaming device. They might drop the ball on exclusives but it's still my favorite place to play. Hopefully Gears 5 delivers!

I'll try it anyways since I bought two months GamePass for €2 this week

Shots fired, shots fired! If you're looking for a good fun game not focused on a story then try Apex Legends. Looks to be the surprise hit of the year. 



It’s at 60 on Metacritic now



Damn, whats up with the low scores?
I loved the 1st CD and i was hoping this would be a mega hit for XB.
After this i dont know what else MS can do to excite their base going into next gen.



Going by the vids I have seen, not surprised. The promise for Cloud computing in multiplayer definitely wasn't kept, either.

On a personal note, this is really why I wouldn't be interested in switching to Xbox next gen, even with all of the recent acquisitions MS made recently. They have some good talent, but it doesn't seem like the management is up to par with Sony and Nintendo on overseeing quality output. Promising games are cancelled, while the ones that have released recently have been underwhelming. It seems the only thing they have going for them, that seems to be consistent high quality, going into next gen is their Forza releases.




On the Graphics effects front it's actually pretty paired back compared to other AAA games of today, you can clearly see the limitations in geometric complexity which was an issue I pointed out a few years back.
..But it also has that clinically clean artistic design like Mirrors Edge, which means that visually the art really stands out... And should hold up over the longer term.

Sadly the pop-in really stood out for me.

I think it deserves a 70 anyway, but won't be surprised if it ends up significantly lower.

It's not a bad game per-say, but it could have been a bit more of a step up... Especially with the bold promises about it earlier in it's development cycle and it's several delays.
