Ok what I'm about to say goes against everything i believe and I will NEVER say it again... but if GTA V doesn't have a tank I'll buy Saints Row 3 instead :X *fingers crossed*
@gameguy182 Saints Row 2 was an epic game. yeah, it was a bit behind the times of games like Grand Theft Auto, but frankly, that is what makes it so good. they don't give a crap. they are making a game that is fun to play and is so over the top insane that it makes the player laugh their ass off for hours on end. if I had to choose between Grand Theft Auto 4 (which I own, play, and have beaten the pants off, and it was fairly easy) and Saints Row 2 (and now 3) Saints Row is going to win, hands down. Grand Theft Auto had a ton of issues with the driving controls and the player controls in general. it almost turned me off to that game completely. part of what made Grand Theft Auto 3 - San Andreas so fun is the fact that they didn't take it as serious. but 4 was so realistic, that it almost made some of the jokes (such as lazlow, who has been a staple in the series sense forever) seem out of place and completely stupid.
The only reason saints row is considered good is its novelty. Its stupid, goofy, and yes can be fun but over all its a broken game. Saints row 2 had some of the worst balancing issues i have ever seen in a current gen game.People who like these games don't care about a games challenge, narrative, structure of combat, layout/design of maps, pacing; all they care about is the fact that they can make there own character and do some ridicules stuff. I'm not saying its a completely awful game... its just not as great as people make it out to be. It makes me want to puke my guts out when i here people say they like saints row more than GTA 4. I have played the heck out of both saints row 1 & 2. There are so many complaints i have with the games that there is no way I'm buying this one for the full 60. No mater how fun it looks, I still cant help but think of all the problems I have had in the past with 1 & 2. Can some one please explain to me how you can play through saints row 2 on hard mode and not see how ridicules the structure of the combat is. I really hope the AI is going to be better in this one.
