By now, you know why Crackdown is so good - you've heard the reasons a thousand times. You're a superhero... you can enlist a sidekick over Xbox Live... the entire city is free to explore from the start. Plus, you can jump incredibly high and kick a pedestrian incredibly far. Those two are integral.
But watch our custom video below and you may discover a few new, unexpected ways to have fun in the supercharged sandbox game. A few come from the developers themselves; attempting to obliterate the final boss in the first few minutes of the game sounds like a bragging rights challenge if we've ever heard one.
Watch the footage closely and you'll also catch a few of the crazy stunts we've discovered on our own. Like kicking your buddy off the top of a lighthouse and watching his limp rag doll form fall comically to the ground hundreds of feet below. Or racing down freeways, shoveling other cars high into the air so that they become entangled in the bridge girders. Or driving straight up the side of a friggin' building.
Well, click Play and see for yourself.
