Crackdown 2
Crackdown 2 Dated & Given ViDoc Treatment
Written By
View author's profile

Microsoft's Community Manager for Europe, Graeme Boyd, AKA AceyBongos, recently announced that Crackdown 2 will be hitting North American and European shores on July 6th and July 9th respectively. That's a Tuesday and a Friday. In July. This year... sir.

To celebrate this illustrious day where we not only welcome the release date of Crackdown 2, but also thank Microsoft for giving us something to play in the summer - You know, that isn't Tiger Woods - Ruffian also released their first ViDoc, titled, Fun With Friends.

Expect explosions. Expect some gaming madness in the summer. Expect the uninfected. SeewhutIdidthar?

Didn't get the first one but might get this if it has decent co-op because i've got a couple of friends who will get this. Looking good so far though.

I bought the first game for the halo 3 beta but it ended up being pretty good.

I'll get the 2nd one.

The best game ever to come from scotland! I live a just a few hours away from the game studio! Im so proud to have such a fantastic game made right here. Good on ya boys! Hahah, They should so give you the option to let your agent wear a Kilt. Lol First day buy as well as all the DLC.

The first one was by far one of the best games on the 360 to date. The fact is the vast majority of people bought it for the Halo 3 Beta yet kept the game when they realised how friggin' amazing it is!

And whoever said it was never dated, they initially "estimated" Q3-4 '10, but to be fair, that's hardly specific :-P

Hope my job application hurries up, SC: Conviction, Alpha Protocol & CrackDown 2 all in the coming months, eek!

Bought the original for the Halo 3 beta, and it actually ended up being a lot better than Halo 3 lol.

@#2- This guy should be removed because he's a retard.
Read the title of the article first dumb ass.

"Crackdown 2 Dated & Given ViDoc Treatment"

Do you see the part where it says "Crackdown 2 Dated"

Despite the fact that it looks like a PS2 game, the 4 player co-op is tempting so we'll see.

26: The game, until today, has never had an announced release date. Anything you saw was most likely an online retailer taking a guess.

@ #2/26 - round of applause for you!

Anyways.. Big WOOP WOOP! Its not that long await if yuo have other major titles keeping you happen until then.. I'll probably still have FFXIII, then Splinter Cell and then Skate 3 + other!

So many good games, so much fun, so little time!

@23 Are you kidding me? Co-op is the best thing that ever happened to gaming. It makes any game twice as good and can even save an otherwise shitty game. I cannot wait for this!

Can't wait. If this is even only half as fun as the original, it's going to be awesome.

Why do America get it first when it is being developed in Dundee which is down the road from where I live in Perth?

@23 What the hell are you talking about? I'm with you #32. In some cases, a game not having co-op might even put me off it. Plus, you will be able to lock your game anyway so people can't join. You suck man.

Dunno where the delay comments are coming from every retailer I use had either a Q3 or September mark up.Either way I'm looking forward to this,the original was good enough to standalone without the beta for Halo and is a title I still go back and play from time to time now.It's looking like an amazing year for the 360

The first crackdown should've had these graphics. That's my only complaint with Crackdown games, the visuals.

However, co-op sounds nice. Any confirmation on splitscreen though? I doubt any of my online friends are going to get this.

I remember when the trailers for Crackdown 1 came out, I was like: This looks realy awesome! and when I got to play it, it acctually became one of my favorite games. With the trailers and stuff for Crackdown 2, I`m getting even more excited than with the first. Its gonna get really hard to decide my GotY 2010. So much awesome games coming.
