The first 10 minutes: Crackdown part 2

The first 10 minutes: Crackdown part 2

As promised earlier this week, here is some more Crackdown footage from a part of the map that wasn't available in the demo. I've chosen to show the "Tetris Docks" of the Volk Island because it's a quite fun environment, and it shows the rocket launcher in action!

BlimBlim, you are extremely powerful at this stage! Kicking huge boxes and cars. Damn, the gameplay is very much like a superhero GTA. The sound of weapons and explosions is excellent, with all that barrage forcing you to take cover. I'm decidely impressed, looks like so much fun. Just plain fun.

Edit: That sunny horizon at the very last second is so beautiful in HD.

Yea you can get all 4 ranks on your abilities in the demo aswell if you played that, it's pretty cool.

I wanna play this game so bad

There is some nice Russian language in this game. I can tell, I am from Moscow. All those curses Mikhailov's gang members say it's just brilliant, very funny for a Russian person. And the name of the guards "Govnuyk" can be translated as "Assholes". Also among the lines are - I don't wanna die, burn in hell bitch and so on.
And, shame on you Joergen.

I will be ;)

Do I know you?
Commented on 2007-02-18 13:29:45
This looks great! You are really good at this game too, Blim. This really did look like a ton of fun. Perhaps I shall call this game, "Crackdown" from now on ;)

That guy you took down, was he one of the main three guys? or a smaller guy?

He was a smaller guy, but the main ones aren't much more difficult if you have weaken their defenses enough.

When I heard the russians speak I couldn't stop laugthing. At least my russian is good for something. ;)

Played with a friend for 8 hours in a row, one of the best videogames nights I had (seriously I wanted to stop playing after max 3 hours, but I couldn't). We managed to level our agility and explosives skills up to lvl 4 and were crusing through the city with 2 rocketlaunchers in each hand.

The soundtrack is brilliant, never thought that sitting on the front passenger seat and watching how horrible your mate can drive can be so entertaining...

Conclusion: Buy it, get a buddy on XBL and wreak some havoc.

One question though: While playing with my friend I had massive(!) slowdowns at times, but he didn't. When I played solo it never occoured to me...

Hey Blim, how much longer does it take to develop your skills as opposed to the demo? I know the demo is accelerated, but is the difference between the two considerable?

I was collecting about 50-80 orbs to get lvl 4 in the demo. In the full game I needed about 330 orbs! (plus the 60 hidden orbs I collected after playing 10 hours). I think it's quite a diffrence.

It's also extremly hard to develop your strengh skills when you're playing on a harder mode. You're most likely dead before you can reach your target.
Esieast thing to do is to increase your explosive skills. After I got the rocketlauncher (and the homing rocketlauncher) I skilled up from lvl 1 to 4 in no time.

Where can I get rocket launchers? I've wiped out the Los Muertos islands but nada on firing explosives yet. I've heard they are hard to find.

Well, you only have to find one. Then you need to bring it to a supply point and then you can obtain it always at a supply point.

I find driving skill the hardest, damn hard to run over enemies. Reached lvl 4 on all the others but stuck on lvl 2 in driving.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (19 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (23 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (1 Hour ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti Snatcher was awesome, played it on the European Mega CD (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (4 Hours ago)

    nostradamus never played snatcher, but policenauts has a awesome scenario. (4 Hours ago)
