Launched back in 2007, Crackdown is a third-person action game, considered by many to be GTA-like. And this is not surprising, as Dave Jones, its creator, and founder Realtime Worlds, is also behind the Grand Theft Auto license, but also cult series Lemmings.

Crackdown was able to seduce players thanks to the great freedom of action that it gave them, but also thanks to its amazing protagonist. Indeed, in the game you play as a genetically modified representative of the law with superhuman strength and agility, allowing him, for example, to climb buildings. In addition to this, he is a formidable shooter and adept with explosives of all kinds. Crackdown's plot is simple but effective: your super cop must face 3 different gangs, Los Muertos, the Volks, and the Shai-Gen, with a total of 21 bosses.
