All I know about this game is based on what I've seen in some recent videos, and the way some reviewers have described it.
But based on what they've been saying, I'm not surprised to see these kind of reviews for it, unfortunately. The game was in development for a long time, so you'd hope the hard work gets rewarded. Maybe it'll still sell well though.
Sadly its not a Japanese game, so it doesn't get a free pass like those other dated looking games like Nier. It looks like Crackdown alright so thats automatic fun time in my books
@foodfather Nier was called "a rare breakthrough moment in the history of our medium" because it has a lot more to it than just how it looks.

But even when it comes to the visuals, it has gorgeous sceneries like this:
Not to mention the way it uses the graphical engine to dynamically and seamlessly switch from a 3D action game, to a top down bullet hell shooter, to a 2D side scrolling platformer.
Or the best Video Game Soundtrack of the year. (And in my opinion, ever)
Or character design widely appreciated to the point where they're featured as guest characters in multiple games. Etc.
If that's what you call "free pass", I'll gladly take it.
But this is a Crackdown 3 topic, so I don't think it's appropriate to just shit on another game that has nothing to do with it.
