The original provided us with a decent sandbox, open-world experience but it had its fair share of flaws. Well, Avalanche has had sufficient time to work out the kinks and come next year, we'll be able to see the fruits of their efforts. In the meantime, check out this Mechanics Walkthrough; it shows off many of the game's most appealing elements, and proves that if the control proves solid, this game could totally rock. If you're a GTA fan, there's no reason to ignore this one; it's pretty darn similar and should be a definite blast.
