PeterB reviews Crackdown:
I wrote a review in this month's issue of PTD magazine that I'm reasonably
sure is going to garner me no small amount of hate mail. I won't reiterate
the entire thing here, but to make a long story short, I panned Crackdown,
a game where your objective, as a cop, is to murder as many immigrants as
possible. I panned it specifically because of the game's absolutely vile
morals, and more specifically its vile politics.
I actually felt uncomfortable panning the game. Technically brilliant,
this is still a game whose idea of a good time is shooting a rocket
launcher into a crowd of racial stereotypes.
Later today I'll write about This Film is Not Yet Rated, which I
think has something similar to say about the movie industry.
