Crackdown 2
Crackdown 2 Demo Shooting Up the Place Next Week
Written By
View author's profile

Crackdown 2 is getting a demo on the Xbox Live Marketplace next week, weeks ahead of its July release date, which is surely good news for fans of anarchy and chaos everywhere.

The demo lands on Monday, June 21st and will reportedly have 100 Gamerscore to earn, which sounds odd and a bit dubious.

So the demo will have its own 100? or do we get to earn 100/1000 for the original game? Seems fishy, like what they did with Game Room...

You don't get the achievements until you play the full game.

I just found this artical:

"The demo includes ten 10 point achievements that you can unlock. If you play the demo and earn them all, then once you pop in the retail disc, they will unlock automatically and be added to your gamerscore. This is a lot like some of the XBLA titles handle their early achievements, giving you a prompt if you want to go ahead and unlock an achievement by buying the full game."

At least you wont be stuck with any achievements if you don't want the full game and are an OCD completionist...

i was excited for the demo but now idk. i kinda wanted to wait till i get the full version of the game to earn achievements. i doubt this concept will catch on. i know you dont actually get them until you play the full version but its still awkward. i guess i will wait for the reviews before i decide to buy insted of playing the demo. but from what ive seen i will probly get it.

FFS get over it! It's a demo. The achievements unlock when you play the retail version of Crackdown 2. Until then, the 100G won't be added onto your current GS.

I'll be playing the demo in an hour or two. Hopefully my neighbour wasn't lying when he said that he has early access. Can't wait!

Lol #55 you are so right, give this, say, a month? It will drop below half price. Didn't really like the first one, but 4p co-op is quite a hook so I will try out the demo on Monday to see what all the fuss is about :)

what a great Idea. I typically don't play demos but rather wait for release but with achievements to earn I may just play this demo. Great idea to attract players early on.
