I'm mad they went in this direction from 3. I saw it coming and i was hoping it wouldn't become this. Its a shame Saints has sold out
Whats with the hate?its simple you if you liked gta you will like this too its funny as fuck and now super powers???thats awsome
I love the direction they're going with SR4. It's Saints Row. You're The President, and you have superpowers.
If that doesn't appeal to you, all I can say is congratulations on finally getting your soul removed.
Personally, I loved saints row 3 it was funny and awesome. But I do like the superpowers and the weapons look cool. Also this used to be a download for saints row 3 and one of their dlc had superpowers, so really there's no point in trying to say that you missed the old saints row when they didn't take themselves seriously.
This game going to suck ballz, these idiot devs forgot what make SR1 ans SR2 great. This what happen when stray away from the formula that make ur games great in the first place.
I absolutely love where this series has gone, it has come a long way from being the pathetic ghetto GTA it was trying to be in the first game. GTA is what it is, a down to earth, atmospheric story driven 10 outta 10 game that will be part of my collection for sure. Saints Row has become that playground you always imagined as a kid, you can be anything you want to be, and do anything you want to do.
My only complaint with the series, why is limit the game to only 2 players? This game was made for a whole party of people to go crazy.
I prefer GTA and how they can suck you into their world. This will do the opposite....nothing wrong with that though.
Love where they are going with this. It's not a GTA clone, in fact it's everything you wanted to do in GTA but without realism tying you down. :P
Some people say this is a departure from the series, but I say it's a fresh take on the GTA-like atmosphere. It doesn't take itself seriously, and is comedy as a game. Which is definitely not an easy genre for games developers. I had many laugh out loud moments in SRIII, way more than any other gangster-like sandbox game. Here's to more fun.
that wubwubwub didn't help much the 1.2. 3 was fun i was a trilogy but this this is alternate dimension super wacky over the top dunno if i can stomach it but well see
It reminds me of this: http://www.shiftylook.com/comics/galaga/what-if-christopher-hastings-wrote-galaga-part-2
Never really cared for Saint's Row. Played through the second one, that's it. This looks ridiculous by the way.
SR3 was a blast to play, it was just plain 'ol fun. Each mission was a joy. GTA 4 was for me, frankly a bore. In fact I can't remember anything about it (unlike SR3). The story was uninspiring and unoriginal, and the missions were monotonous. The first Mafia game was better than GTA 4.
Anyway, they're two completely different styles of game. The whole GTA vs SR thing is like comparing Assassins Creed with GTA with Far Cry 3 with SR3 because they're all sandbox games! Saint's Row has gone out on a limb and it's all the better for it!
Good god the graphics are bad. I will wait for GTA V (if/when it comes to PC) or even better Watch dogs (depending on the reviews).
Graphics + gameplay = win.
@dahmc This is something I know I would really enjoy playing.
The more Bonkers, the better!
@Sky_Stifler Really? I was thinking that the music sucks ass and the new sci-fi approach is perfect for the random bizarre tone of the previous installments.
@Radnen fun is a subjective term.
@Judecca7734 that is the voice 1 in saints row 3
@Skuzzie That's the idea
@e5115271 GTA4's story was unoriginal, but its characters (particularly the protagonist) were not, and it was far from uninspiring.
@TheOnlyConan so let me get this straight u buy every cod that was released because well graphics and gamplay still good old
@TheOnlyConan yes exactly so. Except GTA is same old shit + graphics. Gameplay in gta is exactly the same since gta 3. So except for graphics it has another boring gangster story...BORING
my point being, the direction the series has taken isnt what the first was.
@dahmc @zerosanity33 @punksterdaddy so Saints Row does what it says on the tin and gets ostracised for being too extreme? people keep saying it's going to be bad... I think it's gonna be good, although I feel sorry for it; once GTA V comes out most people are gonna drop like a bag of flaming dog crap and head for it instead. I did like GTA San Andreas and GTA IV for their content as I just screwed around causing mayhem... basically what you do in Saints Row, but I never paid attention to the storylines: it's the same thing really. Although I'm gonna stick to Saints Row mainly for continuity sakes, I'll see how it is
@Dexyu To pick up hookers, naturally.
