Volition's Studio Development Director said they'll take a look at what went wrong with Agents of Mayhem and it'll be more intense than the usual post-mortem analysis.
They shot themselves in the foot by cutting co-op.
Never played coop in there games so no.
Its easy to understand where it went wrong, they took Saints Row, drained it of all its awsome sauce, changed the name, made it ultra dull and tame and targeted preteens as its target audience. ... so yeah...., Volition did a major faceplant.
You are one person of millions, I played most of SR coop.
We forgot that the world revolves around you.
@PeaSFor yeah but All that awesome sauce didn't include coop imo.
You're saying that since it wasn't an issue FOR YOU that nobody else felt it was an issue either when co-op has been a part of the series since 2's release.
Not my fault you don't have friends to play games with.
No co-op means three copies not sold across myself and my friends who loved the Saints Row co-op.
Glad I avoided that one
There should've been multiplayer in this kind of game
Not every game should have multiplayer.
I agree with you blackblades, but this one really needed it. And clearly had it at some point because of the mission structure. If it didn't it just had bad mission structure.
This game is a game that needed multiplayer
This type of game absolutely should
This is why Gamefly is a life saver. Rented this game through their service and after a days worth of playing I instantly returned it. Nothing about this game was charming or interesting.
Yup if you live next to a shipping center, Gamefly is king. Rented Shadows of War, should be here tomorrow or the day after (because of Columbus Day). Get to play the game and not support publishers who shove in shady loot boxes.
I saw it went on sale through them for $20 pretty quick. I was tempted.
the game promised a lot, shame they ruined it
loved it, but then again im one for SP not MP. I wouldnt have toucnhed MP in it.
Because it looks generic as hell Basically everything people didn't like about Saints Row after what they turned that franchise into.
I have not played this yet because of my back log :(
My personal theory on why it failed is that it may have had something to do with the fact that I'd never heard of it until reading about how it failed on N4G.
They would be better off asking the fans. NO CO OP, NO character creation, Lifeless city you can barely interact with,Bugs and glitches horrible mission variety and in some cases mission structure. Just feels like a unfinished and underdeveloped game, I had my fingers crossed for a delay.
The game is fine, I just don’t think people want to pay 60 for it. I bought it day one and don’t regret my purchase. The gameplay and a few of the characters are great it’s just repetitive. The open world missions are fun but kinda dull. It’s one of those games I turn on for a mission or two and the go to something else. Overall I just think there are so many options out today and so many great games that it’s hard to compete in the 60 dollar range. If it came out as a 30 to 40 dollar title it would have been more successful. I think a lot of studios would benefit from a pricing overhaul.
I personally didn't Like the character swapping on the fly. Breaks the Immersion for me. Coop could have Made it interesting for my Friends and meyself but sadly they choosed to go a different path. Just Remake Saints row 2 or do another Saints row without the superhero nonesense.
I actually thought this game was a free 2 play mmo or something, this could be part of its problem.
Lack of Co-op or any multiplayer mode. Lack of any character variety, really tired of only just human players, this is suppose to be in a sci fi setting.
it wasnt saints row ... lol kinda cut and dry and it took nothing that made saints row awesome ... made no sense whatsoever honestly its amazing that if i didnt know they did saints row i would never think they could possibly make anything worthwhile like that because this game was so dull and lifeless its kinda impressive lol
Just make another Punisher game!
After the wild, all-over-the-place (in a good way), fun & funny Saint Row IV, this just look boring. The environment is boring. The street level & under ground lair all look the same (from trailers). You need a good environment setup for a successful shooter, be it single or multi player. I'm waiting for this game to be in a bargain price (or free in XBox live) to pick up. I may be proof wrong then.
I hope they fix this game
I still think SR2 was the best personally.
Probably should have Dead Island style multiplayer and a new art style. The art style was the biggest turnoff for me.
