PS3Gen tested Saints Row 2 through the Video Game Festival on Thursday, and reports that the title 'is a good joke'.
and we complained about GTA4. I almost bought Mercs 2, thankfully the ugliness of the game was not hard to see in the demo or when I rented it.
then Rockstar would make fun of THQ because of that "Would You Rather" video Would you rather your to make fun of others or would you rather your game doesn't flop ? lol I'm sure Rockstar will answer that
like your game is a flop, they simply say your game sucks. And yes some people complained about GTAIV, only because it was rated so highly in meaningless reviews.
will pretty much sum it up in those videos...It makes GTA4 look 10xs better, graphics and gameplay! And the guy in the interview said it was either an early version or possibly the TV? I dont think so!lol
Isn't the final stages of any game the polish stages? Don't most developers wait to work out all of the game play bugs then move on to the polich stages? I have seen games show video weeks before launch that look like poop and then upon release the game looks great. All I am saying is, we can't really tell until the game is launched.
Im sorry but GTA4 is also ugly as hell, with no aliasing at all, its a jaggie mess.
Am I the only one that forgotten that this game existed? It must be the after effects of all the good games I've been playing.I guessed it kicked out the memories of crappy games and future flops...I have to scrub this game out of my my brain right now....(goes back to playing wipeoutHD)
I don't care what the graphics look like cause I know it will have good gameplay and a lot of stuff to do in the game. GTA4 LOOKED good but the game itself sucked and wasn't as good as the other GTA games. After you beat the story there was really nothing else to do aside from free roaming online and possibly the cops & robbers gametype but everything else sucked. It looks to me like Saints Row will be the series to look forward to now.
No no no no, not ugly. Just looks fugly. Commen sense, yes?
Wii games are far from stellar looking, but many of them are a blast to play. I'm all for games looking spectacular, but at the same time I'm not going to pass on games that I feel don't look good enough. To me the experience is greater than the visuals alone. Maybe Saints Row 2 will be a bomb, but I will wait for reviews and maybe play it myself before passing judgement. For what it's worth, this is how I feel about any game regardless of the console its on. -Death
but using Wii Games as examples...ehh, no far from it there are few wii games on the market that can be described with the word 'fun'
And on a little side note i just had to say that GTA4 makes this game looks like its *****.
Yeah, lol. Only GTA4's Euphoria has put the robotic animations of this game to great shame. Let alone the other stuff.
Sorry, is it just me or does anyone notice the title for the story here? PS3Gen (R)eviews Saints Row 2. WTF! Last time I checked, it was a preview, not a review.
All jokes aside, I enjoyed the first S.R.. It did things like build your character, customize your car(my fav part). Not just that, but the missions were actually jaw dropping fun. there was this part where you ran into a motel and got the drop on a gang. One dude was getting head once you kicked the door in. I found the mechanics to be a better build then GTAIV. I was able to go into a jewelery store and make the owner walk to the safe and open it up, or I was able to call my gang members on the fly to help me out. The only bad part was the ending to the game. The graphics weren't as good as GTA4, but the game play was something that shouldn't have been over looked. So, it's kind of sad if THQ didn't improve on this from the first part. they had a mission where you drove around a political figure while he has sexual relations in the back seat, took a mother on drug runs, etc. So, I must say I really did like the first Sants row. I hope they can reproduce the magic in part two.
This game looks awful. x(
Probably its snowing in HELL cuz i agree with your comment.
GTAIV. No questions about its claim to fame now. The original SR was great, don't get me wrong. I just don't like where they've headed with the story thus far.
It must be indeed because I'm shocked you agreed with me. :o
Oh man that was some sweet action!.
LOL I posted my comment few days back and some n00b disagreed. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... Edit: it was on UK marketplace. I dont live there but have created it. I live in Dubai :D #2 Ahaa 2 disagrees so someone is secretly in love with saints row2. come out of the closed you ..... you .....
i watch inside xbox all the time, but i never saw a saints row 2 preview on there... is this for the UK? where do you live?
I seen Part 2 today and it's just...cringe worthy XD But yeah, UK it seems right now.
Wow one guy disagreed with you in that lonely thread and you bring it up in here. lol. BTW I do agree with you. The game is looking like thrash compared to GTAIV. Looks worse than The God Father.
out of all the Open Sandbox games i've seen so far, The Getaway 3 takes it for graphics. Just by looking at the getaway 3 tech demo, i was very impressed on what they did to make it look just like London. its just too bad they canceled the game.
dont judge it by this video, the first SR looks better than this video. I had fun in the first one and im sure this will be a good game as well. Ill prolly just wait until its 30 to buy it.
Never mind the fact that it looks like a ps2 game, it looked like it played crap aswel. Nothing about it made me want to play it. I laughed all the way through just at how bad it looks. They should scrap it now and cut their losses cuz it looks like this is gonna bomb
Also... Why do you guys diss GTAIV so much? It's the only GTA that was any fun. All the others are boring...
You can't really expect a game to be much good on its own if it's only purpose is to parody another...
But this looks god awful. And more important, it looks like it plays even worse. Horrible animations, sh!tty physics. Dude, what the hell has Volition been doing? Well guess what, they won't be getting my money. I wanna see improvement, this is garbage. All they did was hire some pornstar to do interviews, and add some features like streaking, WTF.
And people said this would be the GTA killer? lol
To me, Saints Row 2 looks... FUN!!! Can't wait!
you are sarcastic right?
yes. ps3 is a joke.
Q:... A:...and if you wanted to be funny whith your joke comment you FAIL! You're a sad clown!....
in that case ha ha omg ur so stupid u need to replace ur brain n console...
Yes indeed thank you clown
are you guys retarded? honestly the game looks good the animations are better then GTA4's and this is crapy video quality come onnnn seriously u guys are gonna want this game once it releases i cant believe you guys you think GTA is fun?? once i beat it i wondered why i paid 60 dollars for the game plus S.R.2 has co-op..... and online wow i just cant believe all these negative comments.
are you retarded?......
u must be retarded for real. the animations are better than GTA4? please look over those videos. the guy runs like he is running on his toes or something
I don't get the point of this. At all.
guess what ITS SUPPOSED TO BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wouldn't be in here if I didn't get all my bubbles taken away by insane people. There should just be a gamer zone so people can't talk trash about each others console. It's really getting old, even for me. Let it just be about the games.
Thy Silly little BoT
I hope this game does flop and rockstar put a reply in with some advertising of the exclusive dlc for the 360. That would bring back their reputation they earned with the older gta's.
to them, any that ISNT a PS3 EXCLUSIVE, is a joke. Article = useless/worthless(pick one, i dont have time to waste on it anymore). those of us who buy it and play it, will make he choice for ourselves. but open-world games are NEVER boring, especially when you add online gameplay----just goofing around is fun enough.
Saint Rows is a joke period. All they're doing is copying from GTA. Same gameplay, same graphics style, same gangs, almost the same city only w/ a different name. Before GTA IV was announced as a multiplatform title Saint Rows was Microsoft's solution to comeback GTA.
oh man the animation in this game is so corny and the AI is horrible.
This guy's opinions do not reflect the opinions of ALL PS3 owners as a whole... remember that.
crackdown psn:killzoonner gamertag:soulgrab3r
HairyBrownSack you fail not the PS3. SR2 is looking crap. GTA used to be exclusive on sonys machine and now multiplat it was a great thing for XBOX360 gamers. Saints Row was exclusive to XBOX and now on the next gen machines Saints Row 2 is multiplat wich might be great for some PS3 gamers. So in theory MS get the brilliant GTA and in return Sony gets the crappy SR2. Us PS3 gamers know a good game when we see it unlike XBOX360 gamers who will play any old slop thats sold on thier platform. If you think SR2 is a brilliant game then i think you need to wipe the s**t from ure eyes youve been blind for too long.
