Those actually look quite good. Main Character seems destined for a tragic wrist break though.

Love the art style, makes it look like a comic book, still want to see someone do a full cel shaded game. I just hope the gameplay is good.

I'm not much of a GTA fan either, but after a little reading up,
the gameplay in Crackdown sounds very interesting.

Okat of GTA sucked to him it's his opinion. CRACK sucks but more than 20 million ppl buy it. Just let this guy have his own opinion. Crackdown is offering something new to console games. Awsome art approach. Creativity is a important. And the first GTA series were very creative. Finaly something that is not a remake from a 10 year old game. Still a no buy for me Just like GTA, because GTA did suck. to me. I like what Saints Row looks like though. They have made the spin on GTA that I was looking for.

I'm really looking forward to this game.
however, one thing about the graphics is bothering me - the only objects casting shadows are the people (and maybe the cars, didn't check).

This looks really odd on that bridge screenie.
The people walking on the bridge are casting shadows on the building below, but the bridge is not, so you get this "floating appendage" effect from the shadows.

Also, on screenshot #6, it's hard for my eyes to visualize any dimension where the buildings come in contact with the ground (again, because of lack of casted shadows).

So, that's the only part of the game that I have a problem with right now.
The graphics are awesome and the gameplay sounds like its a few steps ahead of other games in the genre.

Yeah they do, it looks like they put the bump maps in the wrong spot. I've done that before when modeling cars, it's all about axis rotation. However it could be due to the fact that he's lifting it up in the air, and might have smashed the tire itself.

The game looks great, awesome ideas for a game.

    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (2 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)
