Goods: -There's a massive amount to do -It's very funny. very funny -Major improvements over the first Bads: -Still some glitches -Multiplayer not fantastic
It's a FLOP ! 8.5 - 9.5 is what I'm hyped
then you've missed out on some pretty damn good games.
gta4 deserves a 7/10 while saint row2 deserves 8/8.5/10. this game is gonna be 100 times much more fun than gta4. GTA4 = the most overhyped game this gen (or may b even ever) and it did not deserve all the 10 it got, i personaly wil give gta4 7/7.5/10 YES I SAID IT...I DONT CARE WHAT U DIE HARD GTA FANS THINK (-_-)
Right back at you.
I still expect this game to be more fun than GTA4 though.I had more fun with Saints Row 1 than GTA4
Bad timing, gonna pick it up much later. Though I must concur with the humor part, had more laughs on some missions in the first one than GTAIV as a whole, who said hype ain't a killer.
I had more fun with GTA4 then with any previous 3D GTA games (the original is still tops in my book) and GTA clones (Saint's Row).
ah they've got quite a good voice actor line-up inc. some tv/movie/porn celebrities. lol. could be fun.
Lol at SR2
Did anyone actually think this wannabe franchise like sr could compete againts the legendary GTA? LMAO!
Does anyone actually think that GTA4 deserves the score it got? No. I think they want to make sure they dont do that again.
GTA IV is "over-rated" I'm sure you've heard the term plenty of times before, or is that "over hyped"?
is not a bad score and i will still be getting this. not hating on gta 4 but im sure i would have more fun on this than i did on gta 4.
You people didn't like GTAIV? That was the only GTA that I DID like. It was actually really fun.
apparently its in fashion to attack GTA4 these days ok it lacked some things. but i thought it was a bloody good game!
My favorite GTA was vice city. GTAIV was good, but I missed the flying and odd ball weapons.
I had the most fun with GTA: San Andreas. GTA4 got boring before I beat the game and I lost interest in the game.... the Missions in GTA4 didn't have enough variety in them to me. I played San Andreas for around 2 years before I even got bored with it because there was just soooo much stuff to do in that game and the game map was so huge, but I played GTA4 for about a month and haven't touched it since the end of May. If GTA4 had everything that San Andreas had and MORE then it would be the best GTA for me, but it's my 2nd or 3rd favorite GTA out of all of them. GTA4 was a pretty good game, I guess it's just that the overrall experience for me was just underwhelming (especially the graphics) because I expected to be totally blown away but I wasn't........ The most fun that I had in GTA4 was almost every cutscene with Brucie because that guy made me laugh so much it's crazy.
I agree with you.....GTA IV was the only title that I could actually get in to...the other ones bored me.
First Let me say that SR2 is a day 1 for me. If you think its a rip or a flop then fine by me- wait and see- but i know its going to be kick ace. Second, GTA4 is a good game. The guy above me said the graphics were not good? What kind of tv are you playing on? me and my friends still see new and visually arresting scenes every time we pick up the game. Use your cinema mode and tear it up. It was the graphics that were a major consolation to me when I realized what wasn't included, but I never needed any hype to buy GTA4. It was not as good as SA because its not SA. Trust me I very much missed the jet pack, the cops on bikes, the chainsaw. And a lot of other awesome features. VC 9.25/10 SA 9.75/10 IV 9.25/10 SR2 ?/10 my guess is a solid 8.75-9.0 but I hope it exceeds my expectations.
Now it's Official GTAIV>>>>>SR2
OFF TOPIC have u heard skepta new tune rolex sweep,init the tune is swag. but im feeling hes other grime tunes, same goes to wiley the new summer time tune is swag.
GTA 4 was getting 10/10 and alot of people saying its over-rated and not to trust the score. Now SR2 is getting an 8 and people dismiss it BECAUSE of the score?
I think people expected the second game to improve greatly over the first one.I think some wanted a 9 or a 9.5 because for many GTA4 was a disappointment.Not me though,I dont like either
exactly. hypocrisy is rife in gaming
It will be interesting to see people's comparisons once they actually get their hands on this. Many people felt that GTA4s ratings were overblown. I wouldn't be surprised to find that SR2 turns out to be the more enjoyable game amongst gamers.
Poor Xbots,another lost exclusive
that has what to do with this article?...I mean outside of the fact that it is now on the ps3...and got the same score as the original from oxm?
was not a 10 out of 10, but back on topic this game is coming out at a bad time gonna pick it up when it hits the bargain bins gonna do the same with the force unleashed wish it supported trophies though
supports achievements. Haha...sorry I just had to do it. I actually forgot about trophies until I rented Warhawk and a couple popped up. Does anybody recall the date in which ps3 trophies are suppose to be mandatory?
... they cant give it a 9 or a 10 cause obviously IN TOTAL, it isnt as polished a product as GTA4; the sountrack isnt as extensive and good, and the graphics arent as good as GTA. An 8 is a respectable score for a sandbox games that is a lot of fun, but isnt as good (design-wise) as GTA4. GTA4 might not be as FUN and OPEN as this game, but what it DID do, it did very very well. It was a mature, groundbreaking, serious crime-game. THIS is just Saints Row 2, fun, juvenile, free, open, etc... It's worth buying, especially if you're a fan of the genre, and of part 1. It just doesnt deserve a 9+, cause it aint ambitious or polished enough.
I agree. it is about FUN FUN FUN. I think that was one of the main goals, if not the main goal of the developer.
Who ever think saint row is going to score the same amount of 10 that GTA IV got dead is wrong. So we cant dismiss saint row 2 because of the score. Maybe it will get one 10 or 9.5 but i dont know, my gut tells me that it wont.
I'll buy it. (im not poor like u pooor droids) "-Still some glitches -Multiplayer not fantastic " -sounds like the first game. guess it will rule then.
If you can afford a ps3, than I guess you can afford a $60 game. Go suck a donkey dik you fuking dirtbag.
can I afford a PS3? LOL, I have 15,000 dollars in my bank account. I think I can. just don't want one. it SUCKS!!!!! like u!!!!! u suck!!!!! haHAHAHAHAHaahahA
the first thing that i noticed was that they were trying to copy san andreas, it was a very successful attempt, it had lots of compelling ideas. but, for ME i had a bigger interest in GTA3, mobsters seem more of my type then seeing everyday gang struggles in the streets. GTA4 does have some of that type of gang warfare, but it's all spread out in the game. in my opinion with the all the negative gamer comments and positive reviews on GTA4 i would say that GTA4 was over rated a little bit but the score i would have given the game would have been not too far a 9.3. which is still an exceptional rating. GTA4's world is very big with lots of objectives to do in it, that right there is something i can't ignore, and to tell you the truth i spend more time with GTA4 than bioshock (no offence to Bioshock it's a good game) i played and beaten bioshock only 2 times, GTA4 on the other hand i'm sure i can start over at least 5 times.
i hope its fun. i hope is a sleeper hit
You wonder why it got an 8? Well because M$ is paying for gta4 dlc and dont want this game to look better!!!!!
I can not wait..and would love to hear how you came up with that logic. By all means...please amuse us.
Multiplayer not fantastic; so it's still better than GTA4. Great!
On page 1 the last panel down that dude getting his melon shot off looks tizzite! This game is going to be alot of fun-- my Spidey Senses are tingling!
Funny how the "bads" are exactly the same problems GTA 4 had. Only difference being that they were not mentioned in the 10/10 reviews.
We all knew it qasnt going to score as high as GTA since it basically mimicks it but im still going to buy it because there is more variety to this game then GTA IV. Hopefully Rockstar will see saints row 2 and relase a weapons pack or something.
Now GTA:IV was underwhelming, and GTA:San Andreas IMO was the best GTA game..i mean come on, CJ and Grove Street was so immersive..and OG Loc, funniest character in gta plus everything you could do in that game..wowd me!
I'll grab a "fuketbuket" while I'm at it...
first game was awful you didnt even play it u retard!!!!
No matter what score they review it as, I KNOW I'll enjoy it, because it just soooo much fun with all the freedom of stuff you can do. WAY better than GTA.
... I wanted this over GTA4 all along, but as usual no matter how much content you put into open ended world games, they can get repetative!
Lol @ kiddys comment, you are the kind of person that loves starting flame wars, I own both and say they are equal consoles at the moment. So what your not going to buy a PS3 what we gonna do?, break our hearts?. Your just one less retard on the PSN ;) Edit, this game is going to be fun, GTA IV was way over hyped even for me. Yes R* didn't promise fun game play but where is the heart R*? you took out things that made GTA what it is today, doing stupid stuff and trying different things without having to worry about a cop watching your every move. SR2 will be a good game, all you hardcore GTA fans lets hope R* does something spectacular with the GTA DLC ;)
LOL ya I guess it's "cool" to be a GTA4 hater now. GTA4 is one of the best ever made. IT took pretty much everything that was wrong with the series and fixed it and then added some kick ass multiplayer. Sure theres no jet pack but who the F needs that shi| anyways I just want to kill some cops and to be able to do it in style which GTA4 has plenty. This game looks really good but nothing like GTA4.
