Quest? :D 
 
edit: Win! 
 
edit2: This game is really looking amazing. Almost like Just Cause 2, but focused on co-op. Hopefully the story and other things not related to explosions will hold up as well.

Cool, been looking forward to this

That's the entire point of the quest, and you'd be doing it too if you had the chance.

I got the quest by commenting on a video the right way. Talking about the video, and I just so happened to get the quest. You aren't asked to spam.

It is nearly physically impossible to obtain this quest without posting a one-word response frantically. Just saying "cool" or "neat" isn't much better.

It just does'nt look good, imho.

Waz crackin?

Posted by Rhaknar

what im about to say has no bearing on my wanting these games (i do, and ill get them) or the quality of them, this is just about the graphics...
 
...but why the fuck does this look so blurry / low res? The game is out in july so it's clear that won't change , it just looks BAD. Looks fun as hell, but it just baffles me how it looks like a 5 year old game...  and speaking of which, the other game i've noticed this is Alpha Protocol, another game i want (quite a lot actually), but it just looks plain as hell, it looks like a early 360 game basically. Whats going on with these developers :/

No shadow. Ugh.

The wingsuit reminds me of the cape in Super Mario World. Sweet! =D

@Rhaknar: The game probably looks a bit crap graphically because of the enemy count and the open-world nature of the game. It's really hard to make a game look as snazzy as something like MW2 without it being as guided as MW2 is. Developers really should try focusing on a more stylized look or add more post-processing effects to cover the blandness though.

Agreed, and to top it off, it doesn't look fun. He's just running around spamming rockets all over the place, and thousands of mutants are just standing around like it's a Y2K party.

Prototype had as much shit on screen (or more) and it looked better (although it didnt look that good either), and that was multiplatform. Crackdown 2 is a exclusive, which usually have more budgets, but this looks like it had no budget >_>

I remember playing the demo of Crackdown and thinking that it controlled awful, looked terrible and I had no idea what the hell was going on.  Was it a game that took time to get used to, was the demo bad, or was it just me?  Because as it is, I don't understand why anyone would be excited about this :/

I agree 100% with you about the fun part, geirdaniel.


Are you Norwegian, btw, if you don't mind me asking?

None of that. 
The first Crackdown had the Halo 3 beta in it. 
That is why it was so "awesome"

Yawn

I feel I should actually finish the first Crackdown now just so I can jump like crazy blowing everyone up.

Posted by Kyreo

Want!

In every video I've seen of this game the graphics just looks terrible.

@EthanielRain: its just you because i loved playing this game into the late nights with some friends

But the grand scale of the game just compensates it. Look at all that freaks man.
Posted by PeasForFees

As an alpha build this would be promising. God damn it looks "not good"  and boring, If I want to kill hordes of zombies I'll play Prototype and that game was a kind of shit as well. I didn't much like Crackdown but we should all give it the benefit of the doubt until it comes out. Then we can rip the shit out of it fairly.

i so want this game

Sweetness!  Can't wait!

haters gotta hate

Posted by Wiseblood

I'm not too crazy about the new skill icons on the HUD.  It doesn't appear to indicate your progress to the next level like the first game did.

The game wasnt perfect, and yes the controls were bad, but it was by no means just the Halo 3 beta. Once you get used to it is is a very enjoyable game.

"making destruction" ... still bugs me since half-life 2 when games don't show any destruction after an explosion ... crackdown 2 doesn't even show a little darker spot effect, some dirt or such
 

Posted by vhold

I liked the first crackdown, but after Infamous and Prototype, a new Crackdown is going to have to bring a lot more to the table than the first one.

Posted by RedSox8933

It looks a lot like Prototype to me.

Posted by masterpaperlink

I hope this game is glitchy

Posted by RogueBomber12

Spent to much time in the first game not to buy this.
Posted by Dracomaster01

There's something about the graphics that I'm just not liking.

This guy is the face of Crackdown 2.

if i remember right the first one was cell shaded right? did they ditch that on this one i can't tell...but i looks fun
Posted by NoXious

This looks like a terrible Half-Life 2 mod. Graphics wise that is!

Posted by kidko

Crackdown was a lot of fun... it was one of my first games on 360 and I played it a whole lot more than I played Gears of War, the other game I picked up with my new system. I just hope that this sequel can invite nostalgia while keeping up with the basic innovations of current games.

Graphics look fine. Hell, didany of you play Infamous and see the awful aliasing, glitchy NPC pedestrians, etc? Yet so many seem to hump the living hell out of that game. And don't get me wrong, I also hump the living hell out of that game. 
 
You guys seem to equate the cartoon nature of the graphics to being absolute "shit". You couldn't be more wrong. As a sandbox game, there are going to be some oddities, graphically speaking. That much is to be expected when an engine has to build so much geometry and such. However, I wouldn't expect the common folk to know or understand this. 
 
And to whomever said there wasn't a "shadow", you're wrong. There's a shadow beneath the playable character. It's just not a big black cloud beneath the character like in most games.

 
This game definitely looks good. Is it cutting edge? Nope. These 5 year old consoles aren't cutting edge enough to produce sandbox games with Uncharted or Alan Wake level graphics. That's just a simple fact. 
 
However, Ruffian has taken the high road and kept the cartoon styling that made the first such a pleasant experience on an HD set.

I like how you have Prototype like gliding powers now though I am not a fan of collecting agility orbs.

Well I agree with most of what you said, but Assassins Creed 2 and Red Dead Retribution both looked pretty nice... sandbox just takes a lot more time to design.... So it COULD look nicer!

Release this on PC Microcrap! I am sick of you not supporting your PC side (which in the long run brings you WAAAAY more money), and before anyone says that PC games don't make as much money, i will point you to the whole PC verses Mac war, the reason i go PC over Mac in large part is because of games on Windows... That goes for millions around the world, so if they stop supporting Windows with games then i may stop supporting Windows with money... Steam is on Mac now... C'mon Microsoft don't let us down!
