Sanii Mandred from TheGamerAccess runs through the first Saints Row 3 gameplay information
I cant wait!
Lets hope they stick to the awesome customisation.
There was only 1 sandbox game in 2008 which wasn't a letdown and THIS was it!
am i right?
Farcry was great apart from driving around forever.
gtaiv>sr2 Sorry thier was a bunch of ghetto shit in it for you.
GTA San Andreas was ghetto as hell, but IMO the best open world game even to this day. GTASA>SR2>SR1>GTAIV
GTA4 was too realistic. You could easily trip over anything. Then Nico would take forever to get up. Also, no mission checkpoints. Thats what made me stop playing it. sr2>gta4
I think GTA4 is better, but only when its running on capable hardware that can push more than 15 frames per second (ie pc). If you only had a console, I can understand why you would enjoy saints row more, its not a laggy POS. Which coincidentally SR2 is a horrible port to pc and a laggy POS.
@slugboss I mostly use my PC for rts, simulation, and crysis.
More laughs and mindless fun were to be had in Saints Row 2, by a long shot. GTAIV went all serious, where SR2 didn't take itself seriously at all. Worked out better for SR2, IMO. Plus I absolutely love the amount of customization they allow in SR2. You couldn't customize shit in GTAIV. Rockstar stepped way back from San Andreas on that.
Give me GTA 4 above Saint's Row any day... But that's just taste :)
But still, it's starting to sound like it's on track to become a lot more of a unique franchise, I think the only problems with the franchise as of yet is its lack of depth and its Gangsta root's. It looks like one of those is set to be fixed, as for the depth issue, that was down to the lack of a speaking protagonist, hopefully this issue will be dealt with in the Third Installment of the game, however this should be done whilst keeping the great customisation...
I don't get those last sentences. In SR2, your character would never shut up.
I loved the first Saints Row. I haven't played Saints Row 2, but I should since it's cheap now. Need to get through it since they're building a third one.
Here are latest details IT WILL NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL LIKE GTA
I would have thought a franchise that had survived to a third installment would be considered successful...
What about GTA is more success full? The fact that it was hyped to oblivion and then never met up to that hype? Saints Row earned all of it's reviews and all of it's praise, not like GTA. GTA was games now are liked just because it has the name GTA on it, and the last one want even good. Plus who doesn't like full campaign coop and over the top action.
It's funny you guys say that because SR2 was everything GTA4 should have been. It amazes me how all the GTA3-SA fans suddenly saw GTA4 and decided it was the second coming of Jesus despite the fact that it was NOTHING like the earlier games and didn't have anything in it to make up for it. In SA, you had TONS of shit to do. In GTA4, after I beat the story, all I could do were the assassin missions, or hunt down birds (which I had to shoot?! Wtf is that? Fire one bullet and ten cops are on me resulting in a 30 minute chase) or do stunts...Wow, so much variety, just like SA! The game was STALE. After I beat the main story to GTA4, I didn't feel like doing anything else because there WASN'T anything else to do. I wasn't gonna do boring crap like play bowling or hunt down some car for Brucie. I wasn't gonna go to some dumbass internet cafe when I can just use my PC I have right next to me. The game had so many useless features and no real replay value. SR2 had almost TOO MANY things to do. I have some friends who didn't even finish the story yet because of all the diversions, customization, unlockables, easter eggs, etc. the game is littered with. The co-op was another major selling-point for me. You can do the entire game, start-to-finish with a co-op partner and it doesn't even interfere with the story. The story arguably isn't even the main point of the game and it still had me more interested than I was with GTA4. I'm sorry, but after I started the series with GTA3 in 2002 and got every game up until 4, GTA4 really left a sour taste in my mouth. I just didn't like it.
Its called change some people like it, some people don't. I loved GTA IV. Maybe you just need some imagination and friends that want to play the game.
PC version was aweful. need a real version please, and proper veihcule handling
i hated driving it made me quit playing
a la where's my F*kn car?!
Roadmap for upcoming THQ games, http://www.glimpsedog.com/c...
SR2 was a really great game IMO it was better than GTA4 LMAO http://www.youtube.com/watc...
All those idiots up there talking about ghetto...don't understand the inner workings of the crime-world...Only thing that matters is green all that other BS is crap
I agree SR2 was better than GTA4. SR2 never took itself serious not 1 bit it was just fun and that's why it was so great and what 90% of games are missing. It's why Mario Galaxy always gets 10/10 despite crap graphics (oh the irony).
There was 2 things that wasn't so great on SR2 that need sorting out for SR3. Driving was terrible to me, and the graphics weren't great either. Apart from those 2 annoyances, the game was good.
i enjoyed the first one, it was one of the first games that got me into buying a 360 at the time and i gotta say that i remember enjoyng it more than gta iv (SP of course,in MP gta rocked)
Saints row=GTA wannabe.
It is, but in the best way possible if that makes any sense.
That's hilarious. The wannabe-game is better than the original game itself. Pretty sad.
According to who exactly? Metacritic? GTA IV - 98 SR2 - 81 Metacritic perfect score count across all versions? GTA IV - 57 SR2 - 0 Gamerankings? GTA IV - 97% SR2 - 83% Sales? GTA IV - 15 million SR2 - 3 million People playing online? GTA IV - Hasn't dropped out of the XBL top 10 since launch 2 years ago SR2 - Dropped out of the top 10 one month after release GOTY Awards? GTA IV - At least 23, including Game Informer, GameTrailers, EGM, NYTimes, IGN AU, & Giant Bomb SR2 - Only 1 that I can find; JustPressPlay.com...? EDGE Magazine? GTA IV - 10 SR2 - 5 GameSpot? GTA IV - 10 SR2 - 8.0 IGN? GTA IV - 10 SR2 - 8.2 GamePro? GTA IV - 5/5 SR2 - 3/5 EGM? GTA IV - A+, A+, A SR2 - B, B-, B+ GameTrailers? GTA IV - 9.8 SR2 - 8.0
Oh man, sorry. I didn't know everyone else's opinion was somehow supposed to change my mind!
i'd rather play a wannabe game ive never played before instead of playing gta over and over and over ad nauseum. its like saying im gonna just keep playing battlefield 2 modern combat cuz cod is just a wannabe
I FUCKING loved BF2:MC. And yes lol everyone thinks COD 4 was the first to use the "modern warfare era" setting in their games.
at all the people who have no idea bf2mc even existed
I don't see why GTA and SR can't co-exist. As it stands now, I can get my realistic sandbox fix from GTA, and my shit spraying, insurance fraud sandbox fix from SR.
I prefer VC
Well another game to rent in 2011. The first two were fun but clearly incomplete and filled with glitches.
Saints Row 2 was a letdown. I don't think I care to try 3 out.
SR2 is fan service. I trust volition to not half ass a 3rd game. They sprinkle the world with more people you can interact with like Michelle and Samantha (SR1), i.e. more homies you can depend on in a fight, and I'll be happy. Plus add even more vehicles.
Can't do this in GTA4 for sure. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Does this guy have to do a video cast as opposed to writing an article because hes black?
