Crackdown in Japan

Free-roaming violenceathon Crackdown - in which you play as a good guy working to save the city, not that you'd guess from any of the screenshots - was exploding all over this weekend's Tokyo Game Show, and if you check the Images tab you'll see we have the shots to prove it.

Like GTA if it didn't have to take itself even remotely seriously, Crackdown 's a comic book brought to life... and then blown up to death almost immediately afterwards. As the action is so arcade-fast, screens really can't prepare you for the chaos.

Likely to be a bigger sensation at Microsoft's upcoming X06 showcase (though the TGS crowds were crashing cars and rocketing buildings with the best of them), we'll bring you more on Crackdown soon.
