With the launch of Crackdown 3 coming next week, Microsoft are offering players a free copy of the original game via the Xbox Marketplace. Although an Xbox 360 title it's fully playable on Xbox One via backwards compatibility - with 4K enhancements for those with Xbox One X consoles.

Crackdown first broke onto the scene in 2007, offering a large open-world action sandbox for players to collect orbs and grow into superhero-like agents of destruction. At the time of its original release it gained attention via including access to the then still-to-be-released Halo 3 beta. As a nice little bonus it turned out that Crackdown was a fantastic game to boot, especially in co-op.

Having dipped into the original on the Xbox One X recently, its one of those games that shows its age (in terms of how it presents an open-world) but still remains a lot of fun. As with Saints Row, there's just something about a more arcade and over-the-top Grand Theft Auto-style experience.

Fun fact, the original Crackdown was in development for several years before making the shift to Xbox 360. Crackdown 3 shares a similar elongated development period, and the same questions around whether or not it will end up being good.

In the meantime though, be sure to pick up the original.
