Saints Row Multiplayer Hands-on

Forza Motorsport, Ratchet and Clank, Crash Bandicoot, Unreal, Call of Duty. What do all these games have in common? They're unoriginal. That's right. Each one is derivative of something else far more original than itself (remember those original games Gran Turismo, Sonic the Hedgehog, Castle Wolfenstein, and Medal of Honor?). How much does that matter if the is good and fun? Depends on who you ask, but many would say that despite their imitative nature, these games represent some of the best in their genre. That's the line of thinking that THQ and Volition are following with Saints Row.

How is Forza Motorsport unoriginal? Because it's a racing sim? That is the only similarity it holds to GT4, buddy. It brought customization and tuning to a whole new level that no other simulator had accomplished before on a console.

It seems that you consider any game realesed in a genre to be merely a copy of it's predecessors in said genre.

You need to rethink some things.

BOOSTIN6433d ago

it sounded like they were a little harsh on this game. the didnt say it was bad but yet they werent raving about it. i may have to rent this game first for a test drive now..

Krimson6433d ago

If you read the first paragraph completely he says that while Forza and Call of Duty are "unoriginal" they represent the cream of the crop of their respective genres. He wasn't knocking Forza.

JPomper6433d ago

I was disagreeing with him calling games like Forza and Crash Bandicoot "unoriginal".

mikeeno76433d ago

I think nearly everyone underestimates Saint's Row. But i think Volition are onto a winner. Mark my words...

THELANDSOFSAND6433d ago

i think this title will sell consoles, if they advertise it properly

TheXgamerLive6433d ago

They only reviewed 4 levels of online game play, we dont know if there's more or not but where SR will really shine is it's single story game play. This is where some 80 hours or more of saved game play time will come into play, so to speak. This is where you'll rome free to play and find hidden items, rob, steel, whatever you want. I personally am buying it off the bat. I know this game will "ROCK"!!!

DixieNormS6433d ago

Hell yeah I been wanting to play that game online since then. So maybe now I will have the chance with SR coming. Sweet.

ernande6433d ago

It may look and play like GTA, but GTA has always been about humor. It's an extra element of fun.

Most of the GTA imitators take themselves way too seriously. We'll have to wait and see if Saint's Row can match GTA in the fun department...

THELANDSOFSAND6433d ago (Edited 6433d ago )

From what i have read this game has way sicker and funnier humor than GTA... there will be some controversy over Saints Row's content i believe... Marijuana is present in the game!

:D

Gamingsince198154d ago

I saw it was free and it still seemed over priced for what it was and didn't bother adding it to my library

RiseNShine54d ago

let the lesson be learnt, any more woke crap games will be sent to die, even more if they destroy a well loved franchise.

Contrary to your arbitrary argument, this game didn't fail due to "wokeness" lol.

phoenixwing54d ago (Edited 54d ago )

All I remember from this was I saw the news about how you can't make a well endowed female character and most of the settings don't help much with the female face. However they thought it was completely fine to let you make your character a toilet and went to great legnths to get it added. But yeah a dolled up female was out of the question.

HankHill54d ago

Attractive females are offensive in current year.

They are tracking 3.2M PS5 players. They say the Saints Row's PS Plus debut player count fell 23.64% short of the Battlefield 2042 PS Plus debut.

I downloaded it to try but I was never much of a Saint row fan to begin with. If they re released the older ones I'd probably try them to.

jeromeface164d ago

its sad we live in an time where people seek out retro software vs playing whats fresh and new

shinoff2183163d ago

Jeromeface that's funny as shit. I've complained tremendously about ff16 and you know what I get told

If you want turn based go play the older ones.

Anyway I play new shit all the time. Had a blast with star ocean 6, tails of arise, ys newest games. But I can do both. Play retro and new stuff. Sad thing is alot of new stuff I find whack atleast alot of the aaa games , I'm not a huge fan of shooters,online games, online shooters and gatcha games and that's alot of the shit shoveled out.

There's still plenty of dope stuff coming out though

Baldurs gate looks good
Yakuza
Ys
Got a dragon quest some year
As much as I bitch about cyberpunk I'm looking forward to that dlc(hope it ain't broke)

It's refreshing to have a mix.
