From The Hotbox: "The demo for crack down 2 was released last week and as expected it felt a lot like crackdown 1.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing, Crackdown was an fun game. It had some of the best 3D platforming since Mario 64, it pioneered the notion of verticality in third person shooters. The ‘leveling’ of your skills had a much larger, more visible impact than in RPG’s and other action titles that shoe-horned in RPG elements. I don’t have to mention the orbs, probably one of the best use of collectibles in gaming. All that, and online co-op to boot.
Crack down 2 seems to take all those elements and improve on them....."
