David Jaffe’s PS3 Criminal Crackdown
You may remember David Jaffe as the main man behind the smash hit God of War. Now Mr. Jaffe is moving away from games like that to make smaller games like Criminal Crackdown, which will be a downloadable game for the PS3. It was developed in just seven months (so far) and Mr. Jaffe likens it to a “pop song” versus God of War, which is an “opera”.
This game reminds me of a top-down racing game my brothers and I would play on our Atari 800XL. It was a lot of fun, and if you hit the other car just right, you could send him careening across the screen. Lots of multiplayer fun. Though that game was just two players, and Criminal Crackdown will support four-player multiplayer action! Yay!
Anyway, this game looks like a lot of fun, and I’ll definitely be downloading it. The question remains: how do I become a member of David Jaffe’s team, to develop games like this myself? I used to be a games developer after all!
