    This game just looks like a bunch of shit thrown together that doesn't serve any real purpose other than to fuck around. I'm sure that's fun for some, but I see a lot of lost potential here. For example, they could probably make a REALLY good superhero game, but instead it's a Saint's Row game. Not to mention, it's a Saint's Row game that looks exactly like SR3, just with more stuff. "DLC, the Game!"

    Why is looking like its predecessor a problem? Its built on the same engine by the same company in the same universe. Of course it going to look similar. Hey, its even going to have some of the same characters. Still looks fun.

    yeah, look at Borderlands 2. It is very similar to the first game but that didn't stop it from being awesome.

    I don't understand that complaint as well. If SR3 was f'ing amazing (and it was/is) using that engine and universe, then if SR4 looks and plays the same, it'll be just as amazing.

    I'm not sure I like the super hero direction. Will have to wait and see if i'm going to purchase.

    How is this any different from all the Modern Warfare or Battlefield games? They all look the same, play the same, and don't really add anything new, yet they sell millions of copies.

    For me, the SR games are just fun. While I enjoyed the longevity of SR2 over SR3, due to all of the side activities, and I still say that SR1 has the best vehicle camera placement, I liked how the story was presented in SR3, and I enjoyed the over the top humor. SR4 looks to continue that trend. The only thing in the SR4 clips that I haven't particularly liked is the gun the turns peoples heads into balloons and makes them pop, mainly because the effect looks kinda lame (looks like they spent 5 minutes on it). If they made them expand like Thunder in 'Big Trouble in Little China', then I'd probably enjoy it more.

    The one thing from SR2 that I *really* hope they bring back is the ability to listen to a radio channel while outside of your vehicle. I loved taking strongholds while listening to classical music. Mayhem and classical music are like peanut butter and chocolate.

    That doesn't make them good. That's not a very good example at all. Modern Warfare and Battlefield are definitely cashcow games. I wouldn't buy them.

    There's nothing technically wrong with it. The graphics aren't bad. It just doesn't seem like they're really trying or wanting to move too far out of the box with SR4. They're just giving people more of SR3 with superhero powers. That's cool if it's your thing and all, I just wish that they would actually do something more with the talent that they clearly have.

    I felt OP by the end of each SR game, especially in SR3 after spending and buying all talents. Having Biotic type moves wont be any more broken than infinite ammo rocket launchers. Flying around might be kinda OP but I'm sure that type of shit will be end game.

    Anyways, the MP in this makes it an amazing game for couples/friends who game together. My wife and I will enjoy the 40+ hours this game will give us as a game to 100% together.

    could say the same about the GTA games sure from 2 to 3 was a graphics change but since san andreas each game gets smaller and less impressive, the GTA 4 story was utterly dull

    Because it was originally supposed to be a DLC pack, but was expanded to be a full sequel (with the DLC bit scrapped).

It's a profitable franchise, and removing the studio behind a franchise like that is rarely a good move.

    redit: Also, I'm pretty amped. SR3 was spectacular and I'm looking forward to more delightfully over the top shenanigans.

    I have been umming and ahh'ing about trying SR3 ... damn... I'm going to go buy it on steam now.

    Rent or buy Crackdown 1 or 2. It'll give you a feel of how being "super" against normal enemies can work - and work quite well. Crackdown was quite fun, especially co-op.

    Yeah I think GTA IV traded too much for gritty realism. And in many cases was a bit over stuffed with "fun extras" being a mandated part of the game. Extras like the ability to go out with people and do activities being this constant thing looming over you every time you go to do something.


    As for SR4 my concern is that some of the core 'features' are a bit too ridiculous to the point it feels over bloated and stuffed. Like they turned all the cheats on at once.

    Super powers and fighting aliens? So, it's like a comical version of Prototype (You didn't fight aliens in Prototype, but close enough). I'm not sure I like the superhero part.

    Yes, but I wish the SR franchise wasn't it

    I enjoyed three and up to the zombies bit found it a bit more than a "little" harder to believe, then zombies onwards I was like, its enjoyable but GTAs just knocked it off and taken #1 back for gang type games

    This, Im still slightly hoping is a piss take trailer along with the rest
