Before the 360 was even released, I heard about this game called Crackdown. I read up on it a little and was instantly drawn in. Basically take Grand Theft Auto, add in a Superman-like character, and let the fun begin.

Yes there will be a lot of GTA clones, including Saints Row which in my opinion blows, but this one seems add a twist to the GTA formula. Here are a few screen-shots to gaze at:
