Microsoft announced that Crackdown 2 is now available on Xbox One through backward compatibility. This lines up nicely with the recent release of Crackdown 3, so if you haven’t played the predecessor, this is a good chance to check it out.

To make things even better, the game is free, too, so you can download it at no extra cost. Editor Ben Reeves gave Crackdown 2 a 7.25, saying that “What hurts the most about Crackdown 2 is that I would have been content with a simple, by-the-numbers sequel with a few token improvements.” While Reeves mostly enjoyed the game, Crackdown 2 didn’t offer the same innovations of its predecessor.
