Saint's Row 1

I'm always behind the times. I'm just now playing the original Saint's Row game. Now obviously this is a thinly veiled Grand Theft Auto clone, but I'm actually enjoying it MORE than GTA4. Why? Better controls! I hated the controls of GTA4 and the difficulty and the driving. Everything on SR just plays so much easier, and the difficulty level seems a lot more forgiving as well.

Now obviously the graphics are nowhere near the near-photo-quality of GTA4, or even of Crackdown, but they're good enough for me. And the level of quality to the world is nowhere near GTA4 of course, but there is a funny radio talk station I haven't had time to devote to yet. And the story isn't as "good" as GTA4 but it's certainly goofy and entertaining. I particularly love the doe-eyed brainless look my silent character gives in the cutscenes, he looks like such an idiot

The missions seem a lot less annoying and difficult as well. So with better driving, better shooting, better movement, I gotta give this the thumbs up! Of course I'm only 5-10 missions into the game...

Not a bad game at all, i loved the missions were you have to take over the gang hideouts to make them your own........definitely worth a play though.

Which reminds me of my favorite side activity... killing pimps and stealing their hoes!

I haven't played SR1, but SR2 is a great game - nay, a better *game* than GTA4.

Re: Saint's Row 1

I'll definitely play Saint's Row 2... in two years when it's only twenty bucks Are the graphics improved from the original? How is it different?

Re: Saint's Row 1

My big complaint about Saints Row was that it forced you to do side missions in order to build up enough respect to do the main story missions. I finished the game, but it has no re-playability for me because I just get really sick of all the mini-games I have to do over and over. This is the reason why I never bought SR2.

Re: Saint's Row 1

I agree, having to do side missions to advance the story is annoying. Particularly since that involves a lot of driving around to find something new to do.
