Images and trailer of Saints Row 2

After a very forgettable teaser, to say the least, THQ finally shows Saints Row 2 in motion via this quite nice video, along with a few new artworks and images.

Funny movie. So this game can be played entirely in co-op?

Indeed. I actually have to say I'm looking forward to this more than GTA, looks like it's going to be a lot more fun to play, I especially like how they've built the insurance fraud mini game from the first into the core gameplay, so you can throw yourself infront of traffic as much as you like now. And of course, being able to toss people is going to create some very funny situations.

What's with the rock bottom though?

lol Shock Paddels this will be good too but GTA 4 is better for example San Andreas is still better than Saints Row 1

Aw, poor Saints Row trying to steal the light form the king...*pats on head*

If I was a company, I would step down and let GTA4 go wild.

Also did you guys know the release of Iron Man movie was delayed simply because of GTA4? hahaha

Awesome.

one thing people are forgetting is that if there is only 1 company making a genre of games they will tend to start lacking, when there is competition thats what makes them have to push the limits even more and make a better game

Exactly - just like the platform war. If you like GTA, fair enough, if you like Saints Row, fair enough - there isn't anything stopping you buying both!

After seeing the last GTA4 videos I take back what I said about this blowing away GTA4 graphically, especially the animation which looks almost PS1 quality! I'm sure the animation was better in Saints Row 1. (I only played the demo but I doubt somehow that the finished game would have worse animation.)

I'm looking forward to both. SR2 comes out end of August. 4 months after GTAIV. Most of us will probably be bored with GTAIV come this holiday season and Saints Row 2 will be a good one to pick up.

Its trying to hard to be GTA, GTA homour is unique and original, most of these jokes have been done in GTA already. captures looked great but I wasnt that impressed with the video footage.

This game is just looking trashier and more low brow every time i see it, the first saints row took it self a bit too seriously, but this thing looks more like a parody of the first game.
I still liked the first saints row because it had good gameplay and some nice new ideas, but the plot and the characters where worthless and the humor failed in every conceivable way.
But i will still be getting it since i am a sucker for gta style games even bad ones :)

It certainly looks uglier than the first one so far. But there's plenty of time to sort it out. Will make a nice compliment to IV, and c'mon, shock paddles as a weapon? I know it was done back in Battlefield 2, but I can see the LOL element in offing someone with it!

It does look a lot worse than the first one it seems, not exactly the way it should be.

The city just looks and feels so bland and empty and overal, it's just not looking all that interesting. Throw in some, highly probable, horrible performance and I just can't see how this game should excite me.

Saint's Row was the best GTA-like game that wasn't GTA :-) That said, THQ, if they want to break out of that shadow, needs to better define and differentiate their game from other GTA knock-offs. It still seems like old GTA with more chaos and less substance.

I'm not really knocking the game, as I did willingly purchase and enjoy the first one (until my 7.1 surround sound system called me a racial slur), but if you look at a games like APB and crackdown that have the same urban sandbox feel, they do a heck of a lot better at seperating themselves from daddy-GTA's shadow.*

*disclaimer: Realtime worlds, maker of APB and crackdown, employs the original creator of GTA.

I hope they have a FREE MODE too.

I can't wait.
