Saints Row Multiplayer Hands-on

Forza Motorsport, Ratchet and Clank, Crash Bandicoot, Unreal, Call of Duty. What do all these games have in common? They're unoriginal. That's right. Each one is derivative of something else far more original than itself (remember those original games Gran Turismo, Sonic the Hedgehog, Castle Wolfenstein, and Medal of Honor?). How much does that matter if the is good and fun? Depends on who you ask, but many would say that despite their imitative nature, these games represent some of the best in their genre. That's the line of thinking that THQ and Volition are following with Saints Row. (Saints Row, Xbox 360)

uh...
How is Forza Motorsport unoriginal? Because it's a racing sim? That is the only similarity it holds to GT4, buddy. It brought customization and tuning to a whole new level that no other simulator had accomplished before on a console.

It seems that you consider any game realesed in a genre to be merely a copy of it's predecessors in said genre.

You need to rethink some things.

to 1.0
If you read the first paragraph completely he says that while Forza and Call of Duty are "unoriginal" they represent the cream of the crop of their respective genres. He wasn't knocking Forza.

I was disagreeing with him calling games like Forza and Crash Bandicoot "unoriginal".

I think nearly everyone underestimates Saint's Row. But i think Volition are onto a winner. Mark my words...
THELANDSOFSAND  +   3120d ago
oh yeah
i think this title will sell consoles, if they advertise it properly

For most games, the online content is it's bread and butter but not Saints Row
They only reviewed 4 levels of online game play, we dont know if there's more or not but where SR will really shine is it's single story game play. This is where some 80 hours or more of saved game play time will come into play, so to speak. This is where you'll rome free to play and find hidden items, rob, steel, whatever you want. I personally am buying it off the bat. I know this game will "ROCK"!!!

since GTAIII
Hell yeah I been wanting to play that game online since then. So maybe now I will have the chance with SR coming. Sweet.

It may look and play like GTA, but GTA has always been about humor. It's an extra element of fun.

Most of the GTA imitators take themselves way too seriously. We'll have to wait and see if Saint's Row can match GTA in the fun department...

From what i have read this game has way sicker and funnier humor than GTA... there will be some controversy over Saints Row's content i believe... Marijuana is present in the game!

:D
