I had no idea what to expect when I got my hands on the Crackdown 2 demo. I had heard a few things about the game before and how it involved Freaks, but I wasn't completely sure how it would play out. Do you want to know how this game plays out? This game plays out completely awesome.
In the demo that I played you begin the game going through a tutorial of sorts where you are introduced to basic elements like shooting, jumping, etc. But, the game gets really interesting when you start to collect Agility Orbs. Agility Orbs are extremely interesting because they allow the main character to become more Agile and be able to jump higher. Jumping high is extremely important in this game because many of the objects and goals that you are trying to obtain take place on the top of buildings.
Probably my favorite part of the game has to be how the jumping works while targeting the Freaks. For example, nothing beats jumping like ten feet in the air, targeting an enemy, and then shooting an explosive to kill him. Oh, did I mention explosives? Explosives are everywhere in this game and it is awesome. Another key part of the demo was the showing off of the ability to string along a collection of explosives together to lead to some awesome chaos.
Finally, there are special Online Orbs that you can collecxt while playing the game which allow you to interact in special ways with members on your Xbox Live party.
Crackdown 2 is scheduled to be released on July 26th, 2010 and the demo is expected to be released next week on June 21st.
