The cheat do NOT disable achievements because they are promotional codes.

What's the deal with co-op in this game?

Might pick this up at lunchtime - I'm feeling frivolous :D

Co-op looks great, you can play the whole game through co-op over Live, which is very much what I'm intending to do :smashin: The game also has a decent range of multi-player "death-match" scenarios too, from what I understand..

Damn so I paid a couple of quid more for the pre order pack when I didn't need to oh well never mind.


So how are you guys finding it? Are the missions fun, is there a talk radio station and is the map significantly bigger than SR1?? :thumbsup:

How do the cut scences work in co-op then? I wouldn't mind playing the whole game on co-op when I eventually get it but would that mean I would miss the story if the cut scenes are cut?

Hm, I'm honestly not too sure. I'd imagine you'd just get the cut scene for your respective character? ie. instead of having both characters in the cut-scene, you'll both get an independant cut-scene showing just your own ghastly creation..

There are 10 radio stations but no talk radio.

Thanks a lot mate I apreciate it, good news about the perks, (shame about no talk radio though :thumbsdow ).

Are any of you able to talk about the map, how is it different from the original game and how much bigger it is? :)

£35 in Morrisons (oddly still a premium at £40 for PS3 version).

That's my evening sorted, gawd after the day today the more destructive, homicidal, larcenous, licentious outpouring the better ;)

I know how you feel. I still ain't completed GTAIV yet and have loads of other games to keep me occupied, but this one sounds like great fun. Might have to wait until the price drops down a bit first.

I find myself listening to 'The Mix' radio station while driving around. You can't beat those tracks from the 80's. :smashin:

Also, I've found it hard getting used to the driving controls in SR2, after playing GTA4 for a while. I'm not sure which I prefer to be honest. I used to hate how the driving was in GTA4, but I must have got used to it.

(Shhhh...I'm playing the PS3 version, but the PS3 forum hasn't got a play and help thread yet. So I sneaked in here)

how do the pedestrians act on this . As in if your beating up some innocent ped will people say anything or react?

In gta peds talk to each other etc and sort of act like real living people . Whats it like in this?

Also is there any cool vehicles like bikes ?

Peds do react to fighting in the streets. Sometimes you get them joining in, but most of the time they stand around comment and take photos of you with there mobiles. :hiya:

There are bikes, planes, choppers, trucks, big wheeles 4x4, cement mixers, JCB type things, loads of vehcles.

There's definitely motorbikes, but not sure about pedal bikes - though that would be cool; I used to love ramping around on a BMX in San Andreas :)

There's also those pee wee motorbikes; the miniature motorbikes you see chavs bombing around on! They'd be quite a good laugh if you create a huge fat bloke as your character!

I'm going with a 70s chinese disco cop myself! :cool:
