loved the 1st 1 =)
just wish there was more of a story to the game

Hands Up For Games3192d ago

Im pretty sure the Devs have stated that the story in the main Campaign has been fleshed out and expanded. In saying that, I wont be playing Crackdown 2 for the story it'll be for the 4 player co op mayhem that is bound to be going on when the Game comes out!!

As others have said, Day friggin 1!!

YES! This is awesome news. Now i just gotta make plans to ditch the girlfriend for the weekend. lmao! "hey baby. I think this weekend you should plan something with your friends! You know, you should do something fun with the girls, like going to the shops and buying me something. Maybe you could go to NYC? It's been a while!" Will she fall for it? Who cares! I know what i'll be doing!

Bring on the crackdown!

I hope this one comes out on pc too, since usually "360 exclusive" means pc too. I dont have a 360 anymore and I dont plan on buying one any time soon. Maybe ill get a used one by july and pick this up along with crackdaown 2.
Im glad that long period between may and august when there arent many releases, has a few good ones coming out. I usually dread may-early august when it comes to games.

since usually "360 exclusive" means pc too

only third party 'exclusives' are also on PC (left 4 dead, mass effect, splinter cell, metro 2033 etc)

MGS published 360 exclusives dont make there way to the PC likle they used too

Also crackdown 1 was never available on the PC

I cant wait for this game, the first one had its weak element, but it was just so much FUN (wouldn't expect less from the father of GTA)

You're right Hands Up. The devs mentioned it would have a more fleshed out story inside of the Game Informer exclusive interview.

On topic, I swear if they take away the theme music I'll be pissed. Devs should learn that they should not take away stuff from the games, but add to it (Epic/Gears 2, Kryll ,Beserker...)

Agree day 1 buy for me it's the one game I have been looking forward the most. I knew it was gonna be released either in June or July good to finally hear a release date.

Ok great! I'm glad were getting so many good games during the spring and summer. Crackdown2 is a 360 must have for me.

This makes me happy.

BeaArthur3192d ago

At least it's not in the first half of this year like everything else. This will give me some time to beat all of the other games coming out before June.

criticalkare3192d ago

Thank god it's not may.... may is another month crazy for games... Alan Wake, Lost Planet 2, Red Dead Redemption....

BeaArthur3192d ago

Yeah really, Gamestop actually has them all releasing on the same day. I will have to put 1 of them aside and pick it up at a later date.

k-Lan3192d ago

BeaArthur. For me, LP2's gonna have to wait it's turn. What about you?

BeaArthur3192d ago

I always pick up multiplayer games on day 1 if I know I am going to get it. Don't want to get behind and get my a$$ beat when I pick up the game 2 months later. As for the other two it will depend on which one gets better scores, has more gameplay, etc. I will have to determine which one to get when it gets closer to the release.
