Ask Crackdown 2 questions, win an actual, real-life car!

Thursday, 27 May 2010 08:41 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Welcome to the big leagues, baby. Other sites throw out games and mugs as competition prizes, having probably spat on them first. You’re high rollin’ now, dog: enter this and you could win a fucking car.

Warning: The car you’re playing for is the Ruffivan, as seen below. It’s broken, illegal to drive and has virtually no monetary value. But, technically, it’s still a car. As in, it has wheels and an engine.


Entering is both easy and fun. Ask Ruffian a question about Crackdown 2 in the comments below. We started this yesterday, and all the questions put on the earlier article are included, obviously. We’ll pick ten at the end of this week and send them to Microsoft. Ruffian will answer them. We pick the top three answers. If you asked one of them, you win a prize.

First place wins the Ruffivan. Second and third place win t-shirts.

Please read the following very carefully:

  1. The Ruffivan is a very fucked Ford van parked outside Ruffian‘s office in Dundee, Scotland. It has no MOT. This means you can’t just turn up and drive it away, as it’s not legally roadworthy. If you were serious about taking this car, you would need to have some way of transporting it to either a garage to be repaired or a place where it could be off any type of public land. Doing this will involve some kind of breakdown vehicle. Like a truck. See point four below.
  2. Apparently, the “chassis and rear suspension needs a good bit of welding to get an MOT.” This will not be cheap. To be clear: “winning” and claiming this prize will probably cost you a great deal money.
  3. “Dundee” is ancient Scottish for “The End of the World”. Ruffian doesn’t need electricity in its office, as its entire studio runs on the awesome power of the Northern Lights. Dundee is here. That’s where the van is. If you want it, you’ll have to collect it. When we went to Dundee to see Crackdown 2, we had to fly from London to Edinburgh than get a taxi from Edinburgh to Dundee. It took months. Just saying.
  4. If you win the van but decide that picking it up, fixing it and driving it back down to Sensible Land is a little stupid, leaving it where it is may be the best option. We wouldn’t blame you for reaching this conclusion. In this instance, we’ll ask Ruffian to send you a wing mirror, or something. There are some fluffy dice in it; you could have those instead. You could also try giving it away to another VG247 reader who has more time and money than sense. Or whatever.

OK? Get to it. Crackdown 2 releases for 360 on July 9.

This contest is not a Microsoft Game Studios promo.

    Hey, my questions were decent! But I’m officially excluding myself from the prizes this time seeing as I won a prize in the last one. For fairness, like. Not because the van’s rubbish or anything. No.

    #7 5 years ago
  8. Patrick Garratt

    If you win, I’m sure Ruffian wouldn’t mind giving you the fluffy dice instead of the van. I would be extremely impressed if anyone actually claimed the van.

    Richard Smith, a 41-year-old care worker from Carlisle, England, has legally changed his name to Stormhammer Deathclaw Firebrand: “It’s just a strange name I like the sound of.” English and Welsh name-changing procedures are much simpler than US equivalents: the ancient tradition of “deed-poll” name change has made it possible for people to change to all kinds of wonderful and wacky things.

    Or an anti-ambulance, you could pick up perfectly healthy people, drive them as far as possible away from a hospital, then ditch them needing hospital assistance somewhere in the Scottish highlands

    #16 5 years ago
  17. Blerk

    There aren’t any perfectly healthy people in Scotland.

    You could leave it where it is and just use it as a passion wagon. Put a mattress in the back and just bring girls back every now and then. You could tempt them in with a deep-fried Mars bar or something.

    #30 5 years ago
  31. The Hindle

    In a recent interview i read they have took some features away that were in the first game namely the transforming agency cars and the non linear structure, those two were my favorite elements why did you do this?

    #31 5 years ago
  32. Gheritt White

    Is Crackdown 2 just more of the same, but better?

    Are we to understand that the Crackdown play-space has now been expanded to cover four different strata – airspace, rooftops, street level and sewers?

    Please can you go into more detail about the city’s underground areas?

    #32 5 years ago

  39. mington

    i can’t think of anything worse than exploring the sewer system of Pacific City; can you?

    (unless there’s ninja turtles)

    Is there ninja turtles in the the sewer system of Pacific City?

    #39 5 years ago
  40. Blerk

    Yeah, I’ll be interested to hear what they’ve done with the sewers. Surely it’d be nigh-on impossible to use most of your super-powers in such an enclosed space? Unless they’re super-ginormo-sewers.

    If I decided to pick the van up, would you all line up and point at me, calling me a total mong, before offering me a free copy of Crackdown 2 in exchange for leaving, very quickly?

    My serious question:

    Considering the success of the original, how do you feel about standing on your own two feet, without the added bonus of one of the world’s most successful franchises Beta inclusion to back you up – and what fears and opportunities does the absence of said Beta hold for you this time around?

    Serious question:
    In the last crackdown, it was said that the green agility orbs were orgionally placed because the testers were ignoring the verticality of the game, in the sequels development, have any glaringly obvious features been ignored? If so, what are you doing to guide the player in the right direction?

    Not so serious question:
    In the last crackdown, it was said that the green agility orbs were orgionally placed because the testers were ignoring the verticality of the game, are you testers stupid?

    What sort of ranking/levelling system is planned for the competitive multiplayer modes, and will it feature unlockable weapons, perks and that sort of thing or is it a bit more simplistic?

    #61 5 years ago
  62. Ruffifan

    I’ve grown up with fantastic games like Project Gotham Racing, Fable II and Crackdown, all titles that Microsoft and Ruffian developers have co-operated on. I can’t wait for Crackdown 2 and am interested in how Microsoft and Ruffian got together, and why their games are so good?

    #62 5 years ago
  63. Patrick Garratt

    OK. Here’s what I’m sending over. Good luck.

    From the original article:

    @7 slayernl

    Is there any tracking of what orbs you have found in the game, because at the end of the first game you could search for houres with a printed out map in you lap for that last few orbs.
    It would be useful if it was tracked ingame what you already collected.

    @15 Aimless

    The original Crackdown is still one of the best examples of Achievements used as an ancillary game structure, not just positive reinforcement for traditional campaign progression. How does the second game compare to the first in this regard, and will you be making use of Avatar Awards? And does Crackdown 2 recognise that you have played the first game, be it through looking at save games or Achievements?

    @26 mathare92

    Were you ever tempted to break away from Crackdown’s distinct art style for something with a bit more fidelity?

    @30 Marcusaur

    It seems as though Ruffian really are focussing on making Crackdown 2 a largely multiplayer game. What kind of challenges were involved in making it a completely open, drop-in, drop-out co-op experience while still retaining the freeform enovironment and mission structure?

    From this article:

    @27 mington

    is crackdown 2 art?

    @29 Gheritt White

    What’s been your favourite post-Crackdown, non-GTA open-world game? Just Cause 2? Mercenaries 2? Red Faction: Guerilla? And are any of them better than Crackdown 2?

    @34 Blerk

    Comparison shots between the first and second games show a city that’s fallen into ruin but appears to be mostly unchanged from the original. How much ‘new’ stuff is in the city for Crackdown 2?

    And I kissed some major butt too, lol. Normally in life I go technical, but then everyone else is social, this time other way around. Well done to the winner and remember the van even as scrap is worth over £100 (probably up to £120), and that’s if it can’t be repaired, which would make it more valuable. It’s probably just bad sills. If you’re a long way away check out scrap yard numbers, and get Ruffian to send you the cash.

    i was watching one of the episodes of the crackdown 2 story thing on youtube and in episode 4 they showed the black guy from 1 wearing an new agency suit and someone I haven’t seen before wearing an old suit.

    I am wondering if you have the option to wear the old suit or use the old people.

    the game is using the same engine and I saw a picture of one of the old guys in crackdown 2 photos so it’s a possibility.
