Default Crackdown Demo

Just a heads up that the demo at 1.3GB is out. Still downloading but impressions from others so far has been great.

I cannot wait for this game, saw the Trailer 2 vid at gametrailers.com and been in awe ever since.

Nice to see this demo released well before the full game's street date. I really want to try this out, but my system has to be replaced first.

That looks and sounds like a good one. Couldn't check at work so I'm just now seeing the pics and reading about the type of gameplay. Edit: Downloading now...

I just finished playing it for about 40 minutes. The best description of it is basically what you would do in GTA or Saints Row when not on a mission (running or driving around causing chaos and killing everything) but with superhero abilities such as running super fast, jumping 30 feet to get up top a building or throwing a car at a group of baddies. It does have missions but the core gameplay seems to be a sand-box type affair where you do what you want and when you want but when near a mission they will alert you to it.

Graphics are decent and have a nice cell shaded look to them. The gameplay is better than I thought but dont think I will pick it up right away but I would eventually like it in my collection because it will be a great time waster. Co-op fans, Saints Row fans and those that just like to run around in GTA for the hell of it I think will like it alot.

Played the demo for about an hour and a half and I gotta say, while I wasn't really excited for this game from the videos - I'm definitely gonna buy it when it comes out. Not to mention that it comes with halo 3 beta.

I ignored what the guy was telling me and just mowed down people with the agency supercar. That was fun.

Its a good demo i think. i like the thing where if you see a gang drive past you fairly quickly and aim for the tyres and shoot the car turns slightly and flips over....very nice!

The aiming (tyres, head, arms etc) is a nice feature.

Not bad looking either but not great.
