That "Redesigned, same old city" argument is flawed seeing as how Liberty City itself is redesigned.

Saints Row 2 is obviously going in the totally opposite gameplay direction of GTAIV. If GTAIV had been silly like SR2 will be, then I think SR2 would have been more realistic to help detract itself from the "copycat" issue. I personally like realism better, but i'd like to see what SR2 can do first before judging.

Will people please stop calling the persons who don't dislike GTA IV "TRUE GTA fans"?
I'm a GTA fan since day one.
I played GTA I million of hours
As I did with the other GTA's

BUT GTA IV: is weaker than the rest IN MY OPINION.
Does that make me a GTA hater?

And in case you wonder: NO I don't compare it to GTA SA.

GTA SA has 2 much
GTA IV has to little

I do realise they took GTA to a next level.
But I'm sober in my head (mostly) and I also realise they left things out (That pleased group A) to make other things better (That pleased group B)

I'm not calling you a hater, but the truth is that the way people like GTA has changed alot since GTA:III and the fanbase liking GTA has peaked, that is just my oppinion so ignore it if you wish .

Edit: Why do you say GTA:IV's weaker then the others?

But can you seriously tell me it's a coincidence Saints Row is exactly like GTA? I mean the first game was EXACTLY like GTA..where as some FPS's are a lot different to Doom

ok let me refrase that then. GTA is paving the way for sandbox games as doom did fps's

what GTA are you compairing SR to? radio stations and about 3 of the activitys are very sinalar but not enofe to say the whole game is

No, pretty much the whole game was...A fictional city, filled with fictional cars. Satirical radio stations, being able to modify your car, recruit a gang, being able to shop for clothes, get haircuts..and the mission structure was exactly the same. You cannot say Saints Row was an original game.

I understand and agree that saints row is a total copy of GTA.. No doubt but they are staying on the path that the ps2 trilogy was heading which to me and everyone I know irl was the best series of gtas yet.

I read the perfect review/comparison of SR and GTA on this site, explaining how both games complement each other. this is true




Saints row isnt a rip off IMO, its just another sandbox game. i think its a really good start to the series. are you saying any game where you are a crimanal in a open world that can shoot peds and jack cars will be a gta clone/rip off? no they wont be. GTA sparked a new type of game called sandbox games. its just like back when DOOM came out, people said any other fps that wasnt doom was a doom clone, years later the fps game was born basicly... i see this for Sandbox games
Ok, let me quote the Saint's Row trailer:

"If the Grand Theft Auto series lit a fire under the a** of the action genre, then Saint's Row burns the whole damn house."

They were obviously aiming for a blatant GTA rip-off. Or, how would you like it better-phrased? Action Genre rip-off?

Please learn to use your inference skills.

Saints Row 2 will frikken own GTA 4. If Saints Row 2 and GTA 4 were both in prision, Saints Row 2 would be the big black guy that murdered 4 people and has a big cock-meat sandwich waitin for GTA 4 , the skinny whitey sent to jail for stealing a car, in the showers and would rape gta on a daily basis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO, Screw you guys!! I'm out of here!!

Man, your imagination sucks. You should play more fantasy games like Diablo or something.

Admit it, you prefer Saint's Row 2 (for now) because your imagination sucks and the missions are too difficult for you.

I find it funny that people even compare Saints Row 2 to GTA IV, its not even out yet. Leave the judging until its out.

I have seen to many posts such as MisterBlanco's. If you want to troll these forums with your fanatic crap, go to a Saints Row forum.
