@Kon-

You talking sales or quality...because there are PLENTY of things Saints Row 2 does better than all past GTAs.

1. In SR2, when you fall in the ocean, you have the OPTION to automatically warp to land..instead of being OBLIGATED(like GTA) to swim to shore no matter how far you are from it.

2. SR2 has cruise control, GTA doesn't

3. SR2 gives you the option to hold up banks and stores ANY time you want. GTA doesn't.

4. SR2 gives you the option to start a hostage situation(with the ability to literally grab your victim and put a gun to their head as if they were a real life hostage) ANY time you want..GTA doesn't

5. SR2 has drop in drop out online co-op and ALL missions can be played via co-op, GTA has NO online co-op.

6. SR2 gives you the choice to be a man/woman within FOUR different ethnic backgrounds(black, white, asian, latino) GTA doesn't.

7. SR2 gives you the option to pimp your crib, GTA doesn't.

8. SR2 lets you customize your gangs clothing and style and give them a choice between 20+ different taunts. You can even customize the voice and personality of your own character and change your race/gender ANY time during the campaign. GTA doesn't.

9. The partner A.I. in SR2 is SOOOO smart that if you have 4 partners and you hop on a motorbike..the other two partners will get ANOTHER vehicle and ACTUALLY follow you. Not in GTA.

10. In GTA, when you get pulled out of a vehicle by a cop..its game over. Not in SR2.

I could go on MUCH further..but this wall of text is already too big lol.

You forgot to mention that robbing stores is broken in SR2. Alarm always sounds when the safe opens, rendering it pointless.

Also, GTA has much better shooting, hand to hand and physics. Oh, and a far better storyline.

Still love the Saints Row series, though, can't wait for SR3.

"Also, GTA has much better shooting, hand to hand and physics. Oh, and a far better storyline."

Thats all subjective for the most part. GTA4 may have had better writing in its story, but no way is it more entertaining than Saints Row 2's IMO.
I play games for entertainment. As far as games are concerned, the "better" storyline is the one I have more fun with..not the one that tries to mimick a movie.

Btw, SR2's physics are purposely over-the-top. I'd rather see a guy fly through the air after I blow him up rather than see him die in a more realistic fashion.

But I will gladly admit that the hand to hand is MUCH less clunky in GTA.

Man In Black2314d ago (Edited 2314d ago )

To each his own, I personally love the use of Euphoria in GTA, which was improved heavily in Red Dead. The physics in SR2, while fun, lacked weight, meaning that the shooting and general combat felt a little unsatisfying. From what I've seen from the SR3 gameplay, they've improved on that aspect a lot.

The hand to hand took some getting used to in GTA, but when you get down to it, it's very fun to use, especially compared with the lightweight system in SR2.

LOGICWINS2314d ago

"The physics in SR2, while fun, lacked weight, meaning that the shooting and general combat felt a little unsatisfying."

Yeah, I agree. Its much more satisfying to shoot someone in GTA4 than it is in SR2 because, like you said, the characters have more weight.

it wont sell anywhere near gta 5, but from what i saw with gta4 im looking more forward to saints row 3 unless rockstar fixes their controls and make the game fun again.

NYC_Gamer2314d ago

i doubt this franchise could reach the level of grand theft auto...played saints row 2 and thought it was terrible....the ugly plastic looking characters,silly story along with the bugs/glitches...

BLACKBIBLE2314d ago

I'm sorry NY but you can call Air strikes on gangs. You can fly Super Jet planes with laser cannon attached. Fighting is like watching a Donnie Yen kung fu movie, and they give you a giant purple DilDo bat. All that was in the 1st 10 steps LOL

You Noob2314d ago (Edited 2314d ago )

you can do the same with Just Cause 2.

GTA > Just Cause 2 > Saints Row

ANYWAY

GTA San Andreas / GTA Vice City > EVERYTHING

omi25p2314d ago

So because you can do stupidly unrealistic things it instantly makes it better than gta?

Iv owned every gta and gta iv was one of my favorites.

Ive owned every saints row and id pick gta iv over every one of them.

LOGICWINS2314d ago (Edited 2314d ago )

I bought Saints Row 2 this past Saturday..and its the best open world game I've ever played. This is coming from a person whose owned GTA3, Vice City, San Andreas, and GTA 4.

(DUPLICATE FROM ABOVE)

1. In SR2, when you fall in the ocean, you have the OPTION to automatically warp to land..instead of being OBLIGATED(like GTA) to swim to shore no matter how far you are from it.

2. SR2 has cruise control, GTA doesn't

Saints Row will never reach GTA levels because they dont make thier own innovative idead for the free roam genre. They just follow Rockstar and steal thier ideas. Look at Saints Row 3 screens and you could easily mistake them for GTA IV screens. Rockstar did that already and they are probably moving to the next big thing that no one has ever seen. That is why GTA games are kept so secret because devs copy that series more than anything else. Ive never had any respect for Saints Row due to it utter lack of integrity and lack of any real contribution to to the video games industry. They make millions of dollars off of other peoples ideas and introduce nothing of thier own and that is just wrong.

GTA San Andreas had Coop...

LOGICWINS2314d ago

@nopunctuation- How do they steal Rockstar's ideas, if anything, GTA will eventually be forced to steal ideas from Saints Row.

PrimordialSoupBase2314d ago

1. Go play co-op
2. Come back here and admit that you're objectively wrong

Shaman2314d ago

Lol...GTA killer,when will people learn?

Thesonygeniuses2314d ago

This will def bring back the ridiculous fun i used to have in GTA San Andreas.

S25802314d ago

as fun and as much as i loved saints row 2, the gta mix of great storytelling and fun gameplay win it for me. there was nothing to warm to with the characters in Sr2. although the graphics in Sr3 do look nice
