This game is pretty fun. I don't care for the graphics, to comic like. Once you get past that the game is enjoyable. I like the "level ups" gives you something to look forward to. New abilities, etc. Smooth game play, intuitive. So far, a definite thumbs up.

thought the demo sucked, no interest for me, not even for the halo 3 beta.

No trees were harmed forming this post, though many electrons were inconvenienced.

Picked it up at lunch, can't wait to get home. Wish it had some multiplayer and not just co-op though. Some CTF across the rooftops might be fun

I concur. Please post your thoughts on the demo in one of the threads about the demo. This "official" thread should be about the "official" game, not the demo.

My copy is waiting at home, and once the kids are in bed tonight, it's on!

I don't know much about the game.... but the "scared straight" parody commercial is pretty funny.

haven't picked mine up yet. Have it preordered at Gamestop. They told me that you wouldn't be able to get the Halo 3 beta if you didn't preorder. Is this true?

I can't wait to get home and fire this one up! I must have played the demo a dozen times trying to max out all the different skills. I think I'll probably go orb hunting until I reach 2 stars in agility before I tackle any of the bosses.

I really think this game will stand on its own merits. The Halo3 Beta is just the icing on the cake

Remember to download the new skins. Since you probably played all the ones in the demo.

i love it. You instantly become addicted to upgrading your skills and vehicles. Then you try climbing stuff higher and higher. Try climbing the agency building. I swear it's the only time in a game that I've felt scared of heights...ok, maybe not, but it is friggin high once you get to the top.

Yeah i already have over 150 agility orbs, and beat the first 4 bosses of los muertos. Played for about 3-4 hours, really like it. The races are especially fun, except for when I mow down loads of civilians .

Man, this game is crack, started playing at 1:00pm and 4 hours later finally made myself stop. Graphics are great imo, and upgrading your stats and agility orbs are instantly addictive. Havent made it to the top of the agency building yet, but I did climp the lighthouse and jumped off, first game to ever give me that lump in my stomach from heights.

This game is friggin fantastic.

Pretty fun I thought street gangs are a little nill as its the same. But the boss battles/ areas are fun.

Only played a few hours.
I would like to see planes, boats and moterbikes added. Planes were my favorite part of the GTA series.


Driving takes a little time to get used to as the control seems a little loose but onece you get used to it. It is great.

The jumping is a lot of fun flying across the air and shoting.


I don't like the random respawns of AI. I hate when someone just appears behind u totally un fair makes it diffcult when you hide around a corrner to regain health then all the AI have reappered with the old bodys near them.

On the note of bodys its kindda funny that you can toss bodys at other folks. As well as anything you can lift can't wait till I can pick somthing large up and toss it..

I really enjoyed the Demo, so I preordered the full version.

I noticed that there are a lot more 'fuel' barrels to blow up in the full version. Makes for a lot of fun blowin up bad guys!

I second and third the instant addictive quality of leveling up... it's been a while since I've been jonesin to get off work to play a video game.

When I first started playing the Demo, I was ridin in my buddies car looking at all the buildings around me - thinking how could I jump from one building to the other, etc

I can't wait to get fully powered up!

It was technically a single shenanigan, more like a hijink...

I played also for a couple hours today it's a fun game only I already beat the first 7 bosses, so I am thinking of maybe changing to a harder difficulty to try to extend the length of the campaign. Anyone try ruthless or psychotic and how is it playing those modes?

Maybe I should go more orb hunting or try more races instead of just going after bosses. It kind of sucks I am already 1/3 finished with the main game hopefully there is some hidden places.

I didn't have my hopes up too high for this one. But I am pleasantly surprised. I just toyed around with the demo and thought it was just OK. I've been in the full version all day it seems. I like how you can go at your own pace, cruise a little, shoot at little, sky from bldg to bldg A LOT !

I think Co-op will be a blast also.

I am playing on ruthless with no problems.
I am not specifically going after the bosses just going around and collecting orbs and trying to kill gang guys in creative ways. After a few hours of play I only killed 2 of the bosses I killed in the demo a bunch of times (the first guy they send you after and the guy in the nightclub). I am already at 2 star agility which is up there in the fun level as I can jump about as much as I like. Also have 1 star fire arms and 1 star explosives.

I think the fact that I played the demo really makes these particular bosses easy since I know exactly where they will be, what their support will be and the best way to attack them. Of course maybe the entire game will be this easy, who knows. So far it is fun. I did make myself stop playing though as I noticed I was losing track of time and I got to work in the morning.

I have about 3 hours in and loving it. Leveling up is fun. I can't wait to have full strength so I can kill the bad guys in a whole bunch of ways I haven't even thought of yet.

I like the pace of leveling. Guns/ grenades take a much longer time than I thought they would. Grenades are harder to use when the blast area is as small as it is on level one. I usually have to throw grenades all around the bad guys just to kill them. Once you get to level one it really slows down. Level 2 even more. I haven't gotten to level 3 yet but I can only imagine getting to 4 is going to take some work.

Overall the game is playing as I thought it would and I am having some fun. I had to give up the HDTV so my better half can watch American Idol. I really hate that show!. 5 hours a week? what the?

Now I am jonsing to play and I can't!

This game is just a blast. Its awesome too how someone can just join your game at any time on Xbox Live. Co-op is just so fun. You can do so much stuff, its chaos on the streets. I've never been a fan of GTA type games, but this one is something I'm surprising really having fun with. The powerups are great, i love the feeling of how your characters slowly starts jumping higher and running faster. The driving is great also. Mowing down pedestrians is really .... interesting. Plus there are races and such, the game just has so much to do. The best part is that its so easy to get into. You can just pick it up and start playing with no problems. Its completely open ended and you can start taking down the criminal elements in any order you like. This game is definitely a big surprise for me.

This game is great! Only got about 2 hrs in tonight, but I'm really enjoying it. Haven't killed any bosses or even done any races yet. Just killin' gang bangers and trying to level up a little bit while getting a feel for the map. Hopefully playing a little co-op with a friend on Friday, should be awesome.

I got my copy this morning and put in a couple of hours. I like it a lot, it's very addictive. I haven't gone out of my way to hunt down any of the bosses.

It reminds me of the Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, just not as good in melee combat (I want more than just that roundhouse kick). Crackdown would be cooler if there were combos and the ablilty to lock on during hand to hand combat.

I would love to see more vehicles types and more variety in the enemies. Maybe if it sells well we'll see this and more. Downloads?
