Liked everything i saw aside from the xray vision and the conviction style "kill everyone" button. I dont intend to use either, i just hope the game doesnt punish you for not wanting to use it. Conviction did, hence why i hated it.

Well.. you are punished... it's harder.

I'll certainly be using those functions as I work up to playing the "Purist" difficulty.

Harder is fine. But conviction was DESIGNED for use of mark and execute. Where it funneled you into confrontation. Sure you could ignore the mechanic, but you'd have to break the way the game was designed to do so. I don't want a single instance of that in this game. I want to set it to hard, and do things my way...the old way...the better way.

the old way is the only way...

Yeah, like in the first Splinter Cell where the only one person you have to kill is Nikoladze and you can leave everyone else alive. Non-lethal gameplay in that game was hard but fun, surely not punishing.

My god, they've done it. I was convinced by their Chinatown walkthrough, but with all the disguises, open levels, and traps here I'm sold!

I thought at the E3 will be shown newspaper cuttings ...

I think the game looks quite impressive - and I don't know if it's a testament to that, but I think I would actually enjoy watching someone skillfull play this at twitch.tv more than playing it myself. :-)

    aphex187 @Executioner_UK: I totally forgot about how great the music was until i watched that video again. The bit where the girl laughs, excellent!! :D (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It's clear that they are properly developing this title compared 2 to, you'd think that would pay off. Soon we will find out. Very very curious about Scalebound too and more QB is always good. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: Whatever team is behind Dave Jones who is the original creator of Crackdown. That's the team behind it, so, high hopes unless they have literally learned nothing since the 1st game. (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Something this cloudgine will bring i assume. Is it the original devs making it? (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog A fair few games have come and gone since crackdown that improved on its traversal, sandbox nature, abilitiesand depth. So they will hopefully bring their A game to give us something new. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: The only fun came from some new grenades, weapons, 4P co-op, the wing suit and the fact you could pilot helicopters. The rest was utter turd. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: Crackdown 2 had less than a year dev time I think. It was rushed, I dunno why. The city was exactly the same with a bit of debris and zombies. (6 Hours ago)
