Crackdown 2 is a zombie-themed open-world third-person shooter where you play as a superpowered Agent tasked with cleaning up the metropolitan Pacific City. Using both your large arsenal of traditional weapons and your enhanced strength, agility, and combat prowess, you'll sweep the streets clean of criminals and viral freaks. With an emphasis on hectic, superhero-style gameplay and loads of activities and collectibles to find, Crackdown 2 is an action-packed thrill ride. While the overall narrative is thin, Crackdown 2 is loads of fun to play, especially with friends.

Story

Crackdown 2 takes place 10 years after the events of the first game, with the Agency under public scrutiny for their handling of Pacific City. Despite the city experiencing an all-time low crime rate, many citizens still believe the Agency to be a sinister operation at its core. During a press conference, a terrorist group known as Cell detonates an explosive, killing dozens of reporters and Agency personnel. Soon after, an unknown virus is unleashed across Pacific City, turning citizens into beastly mutated freaks. As the city descends into chaos, the Agency sends out their finest agents to return peace to the streets. However, as the main agent discovers audio logs during their adventure, a conspiracy begins to reveal itself. Overall, Crackdown 2 has a decent story, but it's nothing particularly new or original. The lack of cohesive story structure leaves a lot of the narrative up to interpretation, with the focus mainly on the explosive action.

Gameplay

After a brief tutorial mission, Crackdown 2 throws you into the riotous Pacific City as a fresh new peacekeeper in the Agency. Instead of having traditional story missions, there are a few main activities to focus on, with a handful of other distractions to help you level up your character. Spread across Pacific City and its surrounding areas are several beacons that must be activated to repel the mutant attacks. Additionally, Cell has taken over some key areas, which you can liberate and turn into Agency operating bases. Like the previous game, there are various orbs located throughout the city, including agility orbs, hidden orbs, driving orbs, and more. When you successfully collect these orbs, your respective skill will level up. For example, collect enough agility orbs and you'll be able to jump higher and higher, eventually leaping over entire buildings.

This strikes true for combat as well, with the main three offensive options being firearms, melee attacks, and explosives. Depending on your desired playstyle, you'll organically level up these stats, unlocking new guns, abilities, and more. Competing in driving racing and rooftop races also boost your abilities, which are tons of fun with friends. The streets are packed with enemies, so you'll be shooting both freaks and militants at the same time. A handy lock-on mechanic makes it easy to jump and shoot, providing a very rewarding combat flow.

Conclusion

Thanks to the free-flowing and generally chaotic nature of the game, Crackdown 2 is a blast to play with friends. You'll always have an enemy to shoot, an orb to hunt down, or an activity to try out. It gets a bit tiresome in solo mode, but with a multiplayer group, it's an exceptional sandbox. It's a major bummer that Crackdown 2 uses the exact same map as the first game, but the core gameplay is still perfect for some mindless multiplayer action.
