    It had a much better showing this time. Looked better visually (not going to blow anyone's socks off, but it's been polished up a fair bit), but most importantly it looked really fun.

    And transforming vehicles \o/

    I think I'd take Crackdown 3 over those 2 unless they really fuck this up.

    It's 100mb isn't it, just a placeholder.

    Yep, 100MB, it's just the placeholder for the pre-load. Surprised it's gone up so early though.

    Are Eurogamer gonna report anything on the recent MP unveiling? There's been a real lack of news around here lately. I've seen UK tabloids report stuff faster.

    What's this Crackdown 3: Campaign, which has appeared in Game Pass? Tempted to download it but it's 100gb, which is a bit much if it's locked.

    Out next week and before today the last post here was 3 months ago?! This franchise is dead.

    Still looking forward to it via GamePass but it's clearly going to tank in retail sales.

    I'll check out the reviews. I think I'll be game passing it at some point, but the footage so far and the delays has not helped.
    It was the the one big MS title that I was itching for and now I'll play it at some point.

    I hope the SP is good again though. I replayed some of 1 recently and it's fun but felt dated.

    Not sure what the gif is supposed to show really.

    No NDA on that recent test, so we can share thoughts I guess (and some folk have full game already anyway), but online was awful imo. Like as awful as you could imagine awful.

    Single player at least has a different engine and dev team so still somewhat hopefull it'll end up decent.

    From the previews it looks just like the first game, which if you're into is fine but having been so many years since and on a much higher spec machine, I expected alot more. I'll still play it on gamepass til I get bored of it though, best thing about gamepass IMO.

    It looks very much like the first game. That may be a good thing but may not. I played the first game a lot so I don't know if I can recapture the buzz about how good it felt to play the first game all these years later with something that's very very similar.

    I think I will play it at some point but what I have seen so far is not making me want to rush out and buy it. It's going to be bargain bin purchase for me.

    From everything I'm reading or hearing, it is very average or even below average, which is not great for MS.
    I like the look of it but I love the first game.

    Looking at the bigger picture MS really have to have some games for E3. They have bought more studios, some with AAA developers, but that all means nowt when they are not or can not deliver the goods.

    I'm still amazed how they have let Sony get so far ahead of them on first party. This looks to continue into 2019.

    Xbox has Gears (my beloved Gears) but I have said for years, Gears is the most niche of AAA games and I do not see it selling lots of consoles on it's own, It is also on gamepass obviously.

    I have both consoles but my heart has always belonged to Xbox (well since the original released) and this continues to be the case, but I totally accept Sony is a brilliant games machine and their exclusives are generally top class.

    Back to Crackdown 3, I'm sure it will be a fun game, collecting orbs never gets old!

    Gamepass for me - both X and PC though probably play this coop campaign on X. Not too bothered re MP - looks too frenetic for my wizened reflexes.

    I actually bought my XB1 in the first place on the promise of Crackdown 3, I feel a bit silly now. I think MS are really gearing up for next gen now, I don't think we'll see anything of any real note for the rest of the One's life, all those new studios will be working on things for for whatever succeeds XB1. I think they've done a lot this gen to rebuild consumer trust after the disastrous launch, and I'm hopeful they'll be able to use that to start the next gen the right way. Sony appears to be edging the other way after a very successful start.

    @DUFFMAN5

    Got to agree with all this. Gears never really... 'meshed' with me (ahem). Even with Halo it seems MS have been treading water though I do respect them for maintaining the older games with MCC.

    Hoping that spate of acquisitions leads to a decent start next gen.

    Having had both Xbox and PS systems I still default to Xbox - probably for the infrastructure and live service - may be illogical but it ain't gonna change....

    I think it looks quite nice when you're up on the roof tops, but very plain and flat when you're on the ground - I imagine partly because of the flat shaded 'comic book' art style they've gone for (which was, after all what the series was going for beforehand). There are some nice touches with all the neon signage and holograms though, that add a bit more detail to the city.

    The important thing for me is that it looks like a fun playground to jump around. It looks quite large and varied, which makes me wonder why they only seem to have shown outskirts-type areas so far. You can see a bit more downtown-y kinds of areas in this video.

    Fuck me, is that what it actually looks like? It genuinely looks like a subpar 360 game. And you can make cell shading look great, that just looks utterly basic.

    That can't be what it looks like though surely?? There's no shadows on any of the characters or cars?

    Apparently the PC build at the preview event had shadows disabled. I assume it's a bug, as the XBO build had shadows.
