Saint's Row demo.


Recommended Posts

It's ok, I've noticed a lot of screen tearing but it's expected with the demo being an early build of the game (I think it's from like 4 or 6 months ago). The game world seems a little small from looking at the map, especially compared to San Andreas. It seems bigger than Vice City however. The mechanics are great and knocking people down is hella fun with the ragdoll pyschics.

The combat seems decent and being able to aim while driving is a welcome addition. The puncing etc. is great as well using both trigger buttons to land combos.

Graphics aren't up to standard of games like GRAW and Oblivion but they're still better than most, and probably better than any game in this genre. Graphics could have something to do with it being an early build though. Some of the interactions are great as well. I was playing as a fat hispanic with cornrows and this guy in a suit starts going on a rant 'You dirty spic, you're a disgrace to this country' etc so I pistol whipped him and pumped him full of lead whilst he was on the ground. There also seems to be a good number of different NPC's. It was quite a bit until I noticed two the same.

Overall, it seems like a very good game and it's me more pumped than I was before and will probably beat out GTA until the next GTA game comes out next year.

My friend played the demo and said the game was a lot of fun. I can't wait until I can get myself an XBox 360 because this sounds like a good purchase to me. He did compare it to Grand Theft Auto, and honestly I think it'll be a nice change of pace from that series. I honestly got bored with San Andreas way too quickly.

Mine runs pretty smoothly with no frame rate drops. The only thing that's slightly subject on mine as I said above is the bit of screen tearing during cut scenes. But this is a four month old build of the game and nowhere near the build of the game they'll have now.

The game has a unique Respect system and characters will react differently to the player depending on what they have done in the past and your respect levels. The players will also have to be careful and think about what they are doing, as every player action and manner of attire affects their respect level, and would affect the difficulty of controlling the city (continuous violence, for example, increases the difficulty of controlling a neighborhood).

How unique.
