Is the sky the limit in this urban warfare sim from the creator of GTA?
Saints Row might be the loudest punk on the block, and Just Cause may well be the biggest. But of all GTA's crown-stealing sandbox-style offspring, Crackdown is the tallest. Half-a-mile tall at its highest point - and everything you can see can be scaled by foot.
Beginning life as a standard secret agent working for crime-stoppers the Agency, you'll soon find that times are hard - crime is so rife that you can't walk around a corner without gangs shooting at you. Three gangs run the city; the Volk, Los Muertos and the Shai-Gen Corporation. Each has seven bosses that you'll need to take down to get at their lead kingpin - that's 24 big bads all told.
