    Have you been playing the Crackdown 2 demo that's live on Xbox Live? I have. The verdict: It's just like Crackdown. I think this game will really shine when played in co-op, but I haven't had a chance to check it out yet. Jake Gaskill points out that the aiming is sometimes a little weird, but that doesn't bother me; I just like collecting...

    Do you see that? Off in the distance there, near the horizon? It looks like it's coming toward us...is it...it is. It's Crackdown 2, my personal most anticipated game of the summer.

    I play every video game as a female character if given the option. I don't know why. I just do. Sadly, I won't have that option when Crackdown 2 comes out. The game will not offer girl-cops. “In Crackdown, the amount of memory that it was going to take for it to do all the actual animation, the texture sets and the models for the females...
