Maybe, I'll admit even after all the backlash I still have a passive interest in it. The kind where I'd jump on buying it if I had $20 to burn and I spotted it in that budget. But if the overhaul is good enough I'll re-evaluate buying it

Well i would like everyone to remember before or if you dive into saint row reboot it cost 500million to make.

Grand theft auto 5 had a full single player multiplayer and was built from the ground up in house engine 500million cost.

Saints row unreal engine 4 asset flipping some original stuff alot from the old games coop only 500million.

I personally want to see how this team blew 500 million during development.

isarai137d ago

Not sure where you got that number, but I don't get how that's supposed to influence my decision 😕

Profchaos137d ago

Agree i had a laugh when I was watching reviews using exactly the same animations as 3 and 4 can tell a lot of that was done to cut cost but it went way to far

It's actually $100 million, which is still incredible for the trash quality this game has.

just_looken136d ago

You were right it was "over 100million" up to 250mill depends on the source but still how?

porkChop136d ago

Volition has over 200 employees and I believe Saints Row was all hands on deck. So salaries, marketing, music licensing, voice actors, etc. Yeah, $100M+ sounds about right.

yea, you're talkin 8 years ago pricing vs now... which is apples and oranges.

Needed overhaul after 3. Three was good but they were never going to push it past that. Four was dumb. They needed to focus on quality and becoming grounded then ramp the wackiness. The recent Saints Row wasn't it.

IamTylerDurden1138d ago

The reboot sucked and 4 was worse than 3 idc disagree but say why you do. They should have gone back to SR2 style.

Asplundh137d ago

People might be disagreeing because it seems like you're thinking that they're talking about overhauling the series with the next game and they're actually talking about over hauling the reboot with updates.

Profchaos137d ago (Edited 137d ago )

4 v 3 is entirely debatable I prefer 4 but I can see both sides.

I'd actually rate them
5 Reboot
4 sr2
3 sr3
2 sr 4
1 sr og 360 launch era

However everyone can agree the reboot sucks.

But sr2 just feels clunky it's graphically worse than 1 and runs worse at that I remember it being so choppy on 360 I brought it on PC and a decent PC of that era struggled to run it despite running crysis decently

Rebooting the reboot? Offer up a demo/free weekend. Not just the character creator this time.

IamTylerDurden1137d ago

Reboot sucked. Reboot the reboot, why stick with trash?

P_Bomb137d ago (Edited 137d ago )

I can’t imagine they made money on this. The overhaul is probably their Hail Mary.

H9137d ago

I have heard that somewhere

potatoseal137d ago (Edited 137d ago )

The game's characters and story are so trash. You shouldn't have made them like fortnite characters. You made your bed, now lie in it. Saints Row 2022 is dead to me. I don't care what they do to it

Chriswheeler22137d ago

That's my take as well. It's not the dated gameplay, it's the esthetic, style, very modern take on saints row characters I don't like. They aren't gang members, they are college kids.
