The Saints Row 2 scans from the latest issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly show some new images from the game.
it looks crap...
this is really bad graphics. no way it comes close with GTA4.
GTA and the Getaway 10x better then this not to mention 2days2vegas
wasnt 2 days to vegas canned? or is that something else that was similar im confusing?
also, how can the getaway be better? the game is like 5 years old and it shows.. and please dont include black monday, that game was horrible
but SR2 looks good, it wont be winning any awards for graphics, but i enjoyed the first one a lot for what it was. YAY BLOOD NOW! haha
I'm not worried. The first Saints Row had really crisp textures, gorgeous lighting and overall looked great. This is probably at an early stage. Can't wait to see what features it will have, the first one had some features character creation, insurance fraud, clothing options etc that really stood out. And the physics engine was also great.
The 1st saits Row was actually pretty good. I beat the game and got my King ping rank. I'll be picking this up along with GTA4.
This game is not in comp. with GTA4 but I am noticing people trying to make that happen. I think people should stop this one vs the other B.S. it is getting old.
I kinda liked SR better than GTA....
*You can grab a gang member hostage and use him as a shield and also make the other gang members stop shooting.(If you wish you can throw the hostage off a building or into oncoming traffic)
*You can now fire two single handed weapons at the same time ala Halo 2-3.
*New weapons include, Satchel charges, remote detonated explosives stick to anything.
Laser-guided rocket launchers like Halflife2.
*New vehicles include, Motorcycles and Monster trucks, Planes and helicopters and boats.
*Earn cash and respect points by doing crazy things that include but are not limited to, car surfing, shooting people in the nuts which has a great animation that encourages such actions.
*Instant Co-op is available, Just drop in anytime in your buddies game and have twice the carnage. Best of all is the online MMORPG elements included in the deathmatch. All the elements from single player will be included, Missions, activities creating an online gang warfare.
I thought the graphics were "alright" except for some of the players look like their clothing is painted on and not actual clothes. Especially the girl with the bra and pants on... it looks so unrealistic.
The first one was fun as long as they deal with the lag Im looking forward to online mode. SR1 was fun online but it was too small. I wanted to roam the city while online. Since GTA havent given us any online info Im looking forward to this. Hope GTA kicks SR2 in the @$$ and makes them work for my money. Graphics wise SR didnt look that great on screen shots but live action it didnt look bad asides from the cartoony look. If they get rid of the "music video" style it should be at the least a decent game.
this game will be great! Saints Row was awesome, and did the sandbox bit to perfection. I have no doubt this game will kick ass. What I really want to see though is APB (All Points Bulletin)Open world multiplayer where you choose to be cops or baddies. They should hold off on Saints Row 2 until APB is done.
Good find but not so good pics and preview. Seriously, this looks as bad as original Saints Row graphically. Games like Prototype and Assassin's Creed have all the great new elements added to sand box genre but this looks like a cheap cash in with sex and violence in a GTA wanna be.
the game sounds like a dream come true. :) lets just hope there online dosent suck/lag as much as the first one did.
