Crack open some new Crackdown videos [update 1]

We received some fresh Crackdown videos yesterday. The first of the pair (seen above) demonstrates mass carnage with a rocket launcher. For a supercop, this guy seems to destroy a lot of civilian property. The end of the video is especially brutal, as some poor thug gets rocket juggled into the stratosphere.

The second video showcases a gun battle inside a villa -- presumably owned by some nefarious drug lord in a white suit. Check it out after the break.

Update 1: Embedded second video after the break.

1. Haha, how can you not like a game where you can throw a body up in the air and blast it with several rockets...

3. Impressive! On the XBM video disk from a couple months back, a developer actually noted that many of the achievements to this game are based on wacky, free-play things you can do when bored. For instance, one achievement is to launch a dead body XX feet in the air using a rocket launcher.

What I like best about what I've seen so far is that this game looks FAST. So many of the other 3rd person titles (GRAW, Tomb Raider, Kameo) don't move quite as quick as this one looks.

Also the co-op modes of this game sound awesome! The fact that you'll be able to "absorb" skills from your friends for short amt. of time sounds interesting. Can't wait for this one...

4. Co-op could potentially make this game amusing. I wonder if you can toss thugs back and forth in a deranged game of catch?

5. One of the games on my "Most Awaited" list. There are no real "sandbox" games on the 360 yet, and Saint's Row seems like a remake of Vice City, from the story through the gameplay. At least this gritty urban drug-dealing drama takes place in the future.

7. Gamers still haven't had a GREAT "sandbox" game that isn't GTA. I hope the curse is broken...cause True Crime:NY made it worse.

9. This game stands alone and far apart from any other 360 games. Thats the best I can say for it, I'll pass. In fact I don't even know what to make of it.

10. Cool, I'll buy this.
