Gameplayer has taken a look at upcoming GTA combatant Saints Row 2, detailing some of the features developer Volition hope will elevate it above mere 'clone' status to serious contender.

this is actually shaping up to be really good, lets hope they deliver on their promise. i enjoyed the first one.

I loved the first one. It had great graphics/physics, great controls and a lot of features you couldn't find in GTA. Nice missions as well.

and GTA IV could have all these things.

Is it impossible to like them both for different reasons? I do.

MK_Red3779d ago

I'm still not convinced. Original was terrible IMO and this one isn't doing much better even with the added "sex" appeal and plane crashing system.
Prototype, InFamous and GTA4 are the sandbox titles that I care about unless SR2 can pull off a miracle.

ur a bit brain dead mk red what is infamous i agree gt4 will better but what the hell is infamous saint row 2 will be close behind gt4 deal with it mk red its 360 only dont cry cause it is

I mean it was fun in a way but overall average and the shooting didnt feel fun to me at least. Anyway the ending was good if they didnt begin it with this twist in SR2 and GTA IV is just going to be more enjoyable to me but whatever your preference might be have fun.

if there's anyone on this site who ISN'T brain-dead, it's MK_Red.

Oh, and some info for ya:

Saints Row 2 is in development for PS3 and Xbox 360. (Not that I care in the least bit)

The first Saints game was pure crap....kill people to earn buy better clothes and guns....kill even more people to buy even better clothes, jewelry and guns....please, can we get better gameplay ideas than that?

I will only play the next saints row if they choose to evolve beyond the immensely shallow structure of the first game.

I swear....Saints Row only markets towards the extremely shallow, brute-force and materialistic culture known as rap / hip-hop.

3 of my graphic design classmates are big into the rap / hip-hop scene, and they are the only ones who praise the hell out of Saints Row.

Seriously....who would want to play this game unless you're already neck-deep in an obsession with women, cars, violence, money, clothes, outward appeal.....etc?

Unfortunately, I'm labeling people with stereotypes, but I can assure you that there is....generally speaking....a certain demographic that plays games like this.

And it's obvious fact that this game is marketed towards them!

And I'm not part of them.....thankfully.

Ok....let the hating on me begin!

misterssippi3778d ago

So whats your point, isnt that what San Andreas was all about? Beat up hookers, car jack people, hot coffee, etc. Your point is moot being that GTA is the game that basically started the whole "obsession with women, cars, violence, money, clothes, outward appeal" in video games. GTA games are all about murdering, robbing, drug dealing, mafioso type entertainment. C'mon hookers and drugs, same thing as SR. So if you like GTA its ok, but if you like SR you are automatically in a certain demographic? Your arguement makes no sense at all.

"It’s aiming to be a serious threat to GTA IV’s world conquering plans."

I don't think so,the first one on the Xbox 360 was okay,GTA is a proven franchise/series,SR isn't.
