Bored of the standard third person shooter where you exit your car only to be rooted to the ground whilst having to pay extra special attention to avoid your enemies gunfire? Well why not grab Crackdown 2 because as a genetically engineered agent you won't have to worry about getting hit by a stray bullet or two, and if things start to get tough you can always leap high above your enemies heads to safety.
You can grab a copy of the game for £29.95 from Zavvi, which is just over £2.50 cheaper than the next best offer of £32.49 coming in from Cool Shop UK.
You've got three main objectives when you venture into Pacific City, the first is to rid the streets of Cell troops, the second is to wipe out all freaks in the area using a piece of agency technology known as Operation Sunburst, and the third is to close all of the open freak rifts that are littered about the environment. Unfortunately, after a few minutes of gameplay all of these tasks feel a little too familiar and this sense of repetition is the game's greatest downfall.
Luckily, roaming around the city is great fun and the world is very much your playground, if you want to throw a car into a group of enemies or attach a vehicle to a helicopter so you can drop it on-top of a building to ride across the rooftops you can do it.
Once you enter into co-op mode online things start to get a little bit crazy as four agents working together are pretty much unstoppable, and if they decide to battle it out against one another the civilian population'll more than likely perish in the crossfire. Multiplayer mode is another manic affair and my favourite mode would have to be rocket tag for the sheer amount of chaos and destruction that players can reign down on one another.
If you can overlook its flaws then you should definitely grab a copy, but if you like variety when it comes to the missions you have to undertake then it's probably best to wait for the price to drop a bit lower to avoid disappointment or give it a miss altogether.
