hey guys im going to get a new game but im still deciding on either getting crackdown or rainbow six vegas what do u guys think i should get?

This is really the wrong place for this post, by the way. However, while Crackdown is in my top 5 games, Vegas is definitely my number one so I would have to recommend Vegas if you are only getting one of them.

I loved Vegas, but I think Crackdown has a broader appeal and better replay value.

Rainbow 6 vegas. I would rather play the multi player and co op on it then crackdown. Right now they are still not played much by me. Both aren't bad games but my top 5 right now would be.

Forza Motorsport 2
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Prey(Don't have it anymore but it will remain on the list until Prey 2 comes out)
Far Cry(I know but there is a lot of different maps that can be created so it is still fun playing with friends)

I would say Crackdown, but only if you have someone on XBL to play it with you.

vegas hand down, but it depends what kind of games do you like most

Crackdown was decent, but I enjoyed Vegas much more, of the two I would definitely say Vegas without a doubt.

I really liked crackdown..
It was a really fun game for the time I played it..
but I haven't played vegas before..but i'm gonna rent it soon!

i own both.

I say crackdown. If you're a die hard fps fan, then I'm going to tell you to get R6 vegas, but fun factor and the practically open world is too much to pass up imo aside from following a 10 chapter story that is really linear.

08-09-2007, 02:45 AM
for a fun open world go anywhere kill anyone type game go for crackdown - it has a bit of replay value and is even more fun with a friend

but if you want a realistic FPS with missions go for R6, the online is fun and so id the co op. kinda different catagories so you decide.

I would suggest Rainbow Six: Vegas because it's more realistic than crackdown. But if you like jumping off buildings and running faster than cars, then buy crackdown

i would get crackdown

08-09-2007, 05:05 AM
If you want a short, GTA style game with no side missions where the only replay value comes from searching for hundreds of hidden orbs, get Crackdown. You can finish every mission in the game in about 7-8 hours, and after that there's just a few races and whatnot to keep you busy. I was terribly disappointed with the game, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I barely played R6: Vegas because I rented it and wasn't that impressed, but I'd give my vote to that over Crackdown without a doubt. It's a great shooter, just a bit slow paced for me.

hey man, both games are fun I like crackdown more but vegas is really fun. its easier to get achievements in crackdown =]

08-09-2007, 08:12 AM
get crackdown vegas suck ass

08-09-2007, 12:01 PM
Vegas will take you a while to beat if you play the campaign on realistic, and then theres multiplayer. Crackdown will take you a day to beat on the hardest difficulty and then your screwed.

Vegas FTW!!!!!!

Why don't you just play them both?? They're both pretty good!!

08-09-2007, 10:02 PM
Even though both games are really good, I would reccomend purchasing Vegas. Vegas has a much more in depth campaign than Crackdown does. Also, Vegas also has excellent multiplayer, while crackdown has only co-op.

08-09-2007, 10:04 PM
Vegas, no contest. I have both but I've had Vegas longer and I play it MUCH more.

08-10-2007, 12:24 AM
Vegas single play is such ass, it's not even funny. Realistic is some of the most cheap shit since COD2.

Vegas=Much longer and much more fun over Xbox Live, even though I enjoyed playing through once. Highly reccomend Vegas over Crackdown...highly.

Crackdown has easy achievements, but Vegas is the best first person shooter so far on the 360 in my opinion. Buy Vegas.

I just got R6:V last night, and I already own Crackdown. IMHO, Crackdown is a bad P.O.S rip off of all good Sandbox games.

Get Rainbow 6, and there amazing good game.

I would say crackdown. Vegas is good but it just doesnt deliver as much excitement as crackdown will.

what excitement? Crackdown makes me sleppy.... it freakin sucks.

08-10-2007, 12:33 PM
Vegas. Just wait until you play it online.

08-10-2007, 01:30 PM
I would choose Vegas..

08-10-2007, 03:18 PM

Now let me put that recommendation into context for you.

I am not a first person shooter fan. I have historically played way more GTA style open world games than first person shooters.

But Vegas is just an amazing game. Great use of the Unreal engine, great cover system, fantastic tactical options, achievements that make me feel like I earned something, several different game modes that are all fun to play, even single player Terrorist Hunt.

Also, and this is a big consideration for me. I find that there are a lot less ridiculous people playing multiplayer for R6. I mean, you will definitely run into whiny/offensive players, but it is nothing like Halo or Call of Duty, etc.

if you like fps get vegas
but if you like gta type of games get crackdown
crackdown is like spiderman mixed with gta

This is a smart man.

Well dan chose crackdown. Even though more people said vegas :p

08-10-2007, 10:39 PM
Crackdown was fun for about 2 days. I have over 600 hours logged in Vegas and nearly 40,000 kills. Vegas is by FAR the best.

08-10-2007, 10:44 PM
rainbow six defentaly crackdown was kind of boring so
