Found 25th Jan 2007
I downloaded this last night to see if it would be anygood, seen screenshots of it before and was impressed by them, the game is cell shaded and looks awesome.

Played it around midnight last night after a bottle of wine, and was blown away by the gameplay and thte beauty of the game, to me it felt like a cross betwen GTA and spider-man.

why spider-man, heard of Parkour? the art of jumping up buildings and leaping accross rooftops, yes there is alot my to Parkour than this before anyone has a go at me :).

In the game you collect Green tokens (ability points) which make your player kind of superhuman, being able to leap far, lift cars and run fast.

Unfortunately I'm no game reviewer, wish i was but I lack proper grammer, but in my opinion this game rocks. I'd advise xbox live people to download it and try it out for yourselves.

Going to Pre-order this now, I love it :w00t:

I’ve had my eye on this game so this is a useful post, thanks. How big is the demo in terms of game play? Is it worth the download?

In the US, they are offering Halo 3 beta with a limited number of Crackdown purchases.

the demo is 1hr+

I say that because the timer doesn't start until you get 2 ability stars on any one of your attributes, could do with finding this at a good price now :-D

What is it like, i am downloading it now:)

hmmm.... I thought the gameplay was Ace but i personally thought the graphics were cack.

Also its a blatant rip-off of Urban Chaos released back in 1999 on Pc laterly on the Psx and Dreamcast (Which was plagued by slowdown, frames per second issues but you could tell then that this game had a bit of class about it. Not to be confused with Urban Chaos Riot Response

Anyone know where the cheapest is to grab it?

Shopto have it for 37.99.

Anyone know any cheaper?

Hey just curious to how you mean that the graphics aren't so good, I know the game itself doesn't look lifelike, but then again its not supposed to be, its supposed to look like cartoon graphics, hence it been render in cell shading.

And having the violence of been able to throw huge objects at enemies and also throw enemies off high buildings, whilst looking like a cartoon, in my opinion gives it a lot better gameplay.

i messed around with it during the week and have to say its pretty dire. not as good as something like saints row, obviously their is a reason the halo 3 demo is bundled with the retail game haha

guess you cant judge on a demo, might look at it when its cheap

cell shading is rubbish then lol i want my graphics on my 360 to look like next generation graphics (real life like) not like psx or dreamcast... but ... i like the game :-)
