The Scoop: Jumping high over the crumbling buildings of Pacific City, I take aim at the numerous Cell soldiers dotting the rooftop. They notice the aerial threat and open fire. Thousands of bullets whistle past or ping off of my armor. I retaliate with a shot from my Rocket Launcher. The rocket collides with a stack of explosive barrels. The resulting blast sends Cell soldiers careening through the air in a glorious blaze. I land weightily on the now vacant rooftop. On the adjacent building, a heavily armored Cell soldier laboriously adjusts his aim on a turret and unleashes a stream of firepower. I holster my weapon and dash forward, air rushing past either side of me. The turret’s heavy shells begin eating away at my shields. I jump into the air once more. While airborne, I adjust myself downward and am soon descending on my enemy at an increasing velocity, my fist pulsing red with power. The impact rocks the building and the Cell soldier crumples to the ground. I scoop his broken body up and toss him off the building. Once he hits the bottom, I lob a Cluster Grenade down to his corpse, causing a massive explosion that decimates anything and anyone in its radius. What’s left is a number of scorched bodies and vehicles strewn across the street below.

Just another day in the familiar world of Crackdown 2.
