OnlySP: "Volition will be stepping away from their popular Saints Row franchise with their next title, if a recent job listing is to be believed."
The first one was really good. The second was not bad either. Then they stared to get lost in the silliness and lost me.
the first one had my attention but never picked it up, thought it was missing something... then the 2nd one was not for me followed by the others....
* More realistic than a game that was completely unrealistic ? Is that supposed to mean something? I think they think, they are smarter than they really are.
not sure what your talking about. 4 was fantastic.
Saints Row 2's Stilwater was perfect, Steelport was terrible.
sr1 and sr2 were good, sr3 was ok, sr4 i hated it with that being said, volition is a talented studio, red faction 1 was excellent, hope they make another red faction 1 type of game
I never played the original SR game as I've only ever owned PlayStation consoles but I really enjoyed both SR2 and SR3 for different reasons, never played SR4 though as the superpowers thing was just a bit too over the top for me, regardless I'm very intrigued by this news.
Agree with other posts. First 2 saints row were excellent, at that current time they were even better than GTA imo. After that thought, they just kinda gave up with the realism and went all nuts, and i did not like that at all. It was just kinda weird because the first 2 were so serious based, and all of a sudden they did that crazy world with powers and stuff but it was still called "saints Row".
its because everyone was calling them GTA clones and poor ones at that so they wanted to be different and try something new. gamers will always whine anyway. they went in the right direction.
Thing is Saints Row was the more serious one. If they wanted to go really, REALLY silly why not just create a new IP back then instead of ruining Saints Row Saints Row 2 was fantastic
Saints Row was never serious. not sure people like you even played Saints Row games as Saints Row 2 you can spray shit with a truck on buildings but you just want to jump on the hating bandwagon.
But compared to what it us now it was more realistic Don't do the bloody "you haven't played it"...how big headed can you get
plenty of franchises have gone to shit like Resident Evil, DMC, COD etc. nothing you can do but deal with it and hope the next ones are actually good.
Whatever they are working on it would be great if it had destruction. With the power of the consoles and PC they should be able to pull off some crazy stuff.
Yeah from saints 3 it was just like what the fudge is going on. Although I did try 3 and 4 in the hope they would go back to there roots. Same thing happened with crackdown 2 what's with the whole monster thing!
"More realistic than Saints Row" Well, that doesn't give any details on the project since Saints Row was the crazy shit.
Very interested in what they could be working on.
I hope this doesn't delay SRV because I loved every game in that series. I could understand Deep Silver Volition wanting to make something different after all this time though.
I'd love a new Red Faction. I thought the mars theme was fantastic, and the first Red Faction was absolutely incredible. Multiplayer was also damned fun. Everyone blew holes into walls, and made their own little fortresses. What should have been a rather straight forward match turned into a game of "should I explore their cave? and if so, how do I approach them, through the living room, or one of their bedrooms?"
Volition is one of the most underrated developers out there, I still remember The Punisher and Red Faction Guerrilla, such good times! Their games are gameplay first unlike the cinematic story shitstorm of games we're getting, just look at hitman or tomb raider(imo)
SR1 was my favorite on the X360. SR2 was good also. After that it got wacky - a little to wacky even for a nutty guy like myself. Wonder what this new IP will be.
Saints row 2 was awesome as it had realistic elements, but it also had some fun over the top stuff. The rest of the series afterwards just got stupid.
