This game is not the best shooter out there, but it is solid. It makes good use of the MIB license, and fans of the movie and cartoon should enjoy this game if they like first-person shooters at all. Hardcore FPS fans and folks who don't like the genre at all should probably steer clear. This title is perfect for MIB fans who enjoy an occasional round of Doom, but is not really fresh or difficult enough for FPS fanatics or those who just don't get what all the fuss over first-person shooters is about.
As far as PSOne first-person shooters go, “Crashdown” won’t dethrone “Powerslave”, “Quake II” or the “Medal of Honor” series as top dogs of the genre. For a reasonably well-made, cheap, good-looking and great-sounding FPS based on a license ‘inspired’ by the hit motion picture series, this “MIB The Series” game delivers the goods. Just keep an eye open for it, because Infogrames has kept it hidden in plain sight for months on the rapidly-fading 32-bit era.

If you’re a fan of the material, then Crashdown will hit all the right points. It’s a solid shooter, faithful to the franchise (in everything but the cutscenes, at least), and a good amount of fun. It runs fine on the PS2/PS3, so it might be worth scouring for a used copy online. And if you’re not really hip to the exploits of the Men in Black, or first person shooters for that matter, then this certainly isn’t worth going out of your way for.
Please rent this game first, however if you buy it its only going to set you back 17.99, yes that’s cheap. Perhaps that was the reason for the less than stellar approach. All in all this is a decent game while not spectacular its a nice addition to anyone’s collection.
