I started the game over again with a new agent. Collecting orbs is extremely addicting. Hopefully a third game is in the works.

First played it in 2007 thought it was rubbish, Just played it again and my opinion hasn't changed!

So if you start a new game with a new agent, the orbs get reset, right? I might just do this because I'm 25 agility orbs and about 50 hidden orbs away from the achievements, but I have no clue where they are. But then again, I might not, since the agent's stats all get reset.

Or I might just follow the video guides in here and go through them one by one...

Eh, some liked it, some did not. I personally loved it. It was a different kind of game for the time. Now there are a shitload of open-world sandbox games that aren't as fun. At first, I didn't like Crackdown 2, but once I got the Toy Box DLC and got those boot thrusters, I LOVED it! Wish they had them in Crackdown 1; it would make the Rooftop Races so much easier. Hope they return in Crackdown 3.

Okay, this may be a dumb question, but I'm looking all around La Murge after getting in a couple cars.... where in the world is the garage?! I was just running around, trying to figure the game out, and now I'm "lost," so when it tells me to return a vehicle to the garage.... I can't find it!

EDIT: NM, not thinking about having the ability to spawn from the Keep, I did so and made sure to pay attention.

Yeah, for those of us that don't want to enter the credit card or Paypal information for a FREE game, just choose to "Use Microsoft Points" at checkout. I guess since you're downloading something from XBLM, even if it's free, it still asks for some form of payment. This happened to me with Assassin's Creed II as well. So, just "Use Microsoft Points" instead of entering your credit card or Paypal info (unless you already have them in there, which I do not).

Remember thinking about picking this game up when it came out all those years ago. Now that it's available for free it must be played!

Had this ages ago and finished it then. I forgot about the DLC which adds all that re-playability so now I'm playing it again. It's fantastic.

The game doesn't suck! Anyone who dislikes it only dislikes it because they don't want to have fun in an open-world environment. Yes, it may suck that you have to build your character by completing certain tasks, but that's a lot of the fun you can have in the game.

Give it a chance.

It gets a lot easier, just focus more on building your skills. Go around the streets and focus on explosives and physical strength, throw grenades, use the lobber, and kick the shit out of enemies to get yourself up to 3-4 stars in each slot. Dying comes at no penalty so don't hold back and be conservative with free play leveling. Once explosives are high, you can get the cluster grenade and clear out the insides of buildings with one nade pretty easily. As tempting as it is to run-and-gun, take advantage of corridors and tight spots especially when trying to assassinate enemy leaders. The more you play the more you will improve like most games where you level up.

I'm pretty experienced with Crackdown and i'm down to jump in with you to help you out sometime, I got all the agility orbs and a lot of achievements so I just play for fun and will be willing to help.

So can you still access the Halo 3 beta, or...?

Joke aside, this game is really fun. Got a question though, what's a good way to build up my explosives skill? My shrapnel grenade is all I have right now, so it feels like a grind. I'm still working on taking out the first gang, fwiw.

Granted, it's as far into the game as I am, but after you get to dealing with the Volk, it should blow up real quick (pun totally intended).

Just found my last orb, finally (after going thru the map thrice)! Funny how it's always the would-be easy ones that tend to be everyone's missed orb! :P Now I need to decide if I push thru getting the rest of the stunt jumps/do the time trials, or just forget them and move on to other games that I need to finish before TMNT/GTA V.
