The feature on IGN has me even more excited for this game than I was, it looks like it does something fresh with the GTA formula and on a HUGE scale!

Co-op is just the icing on the cake! :P

The *look* of this game is running circles around its gameplay promise. I really hope there's enough uniqueness poured into other areas of it aswell.

The view distance looks unlimited and the vertcal elements seems to give it a unique difference..

The animation sucks and the graphics suck imho. Why is everyone hyped up about jumping around and shooting cars :P? seriously No offence!

That's sort of my point. It has this ultra stylish thing going, but in essence it's Saints Row with Inspector Gadget shoes from what the media shows.

I just hope there's more to it.

Because is the only Super GTA game we will have until GTA4 finally ships. looks cool and gives you more freedom than anyother next gen game available.

I just get a sense of pointless gameplay when I think about how similar this game may be to the GTA gameplay. I find the new graphic style impressive, but it seems wasted on a game of this type. It's okay though, I can't expect every game to suit my taste. There are alot of GTA fans out there so I hope the game is sucessful nevertheless.

Wow that was just absolutely horrible. Just Cause-like ludicrous jumping/driving. The cell shaded graphics are just funky..eek..horrible..

can not wait, demo next month aswell...this is gonna rule

This game looks cool, at 1st i thought it was another lousy clone, but nowim starting to see it as a new fresh take on GTA, and the scale and freedom seem very interesting. of course you have to like the genre... if you only like gta, than you dont like the sandbox genre you just like GTA, dont confuse the two.

not my type of game. ....but why are pply excited?? i don't see anything that seperates from other games

I think this looks pretty awesome actually. Co-op looks like it could be really fun. In fact I don't even remember any GTA style game ever having a co-op mode (minus mods on PC versions), that alone makes this one appealing to me.

Art is great and game actually looks fun. But I'm afraid for "back-up" story(line).
Commented on 2006-12-22 02:53:55
The jumping looks insane
Commented on 2006-12-22 04:44:19
The art style in this game doesn't know what it's doing, some screens look great, others look horrible.

It looks like a cheap PC game.

I like the look of the game, it feels like your playing a comic book. Besides, if everything was photo-realistic, it would be boring.
Commented on 2006-12-22 07:51:46
Gotta say, i love the art direction of this, January'll be awesome !

Exactly. It's a different artistic style and I'm really hoping that more developers will bring more variety this generation.

cartoonish violence is FUN FUN FUN
morphing cars, mutating agents - I like it!

i am right, ever since I saw this game last year I knew it was just going to flog SR. Last GTA Game I played was Vice City and was taken back because it just was so boring and repiditive. This game is an exception because even just looking at screenshots is fun. The graphics are better than SR and a much better and more stable framerate. Hopfully it will turn out good, if it does'nt then that means there has been no Sandbox game that keeps you playing over 3 months without getting sick of it.

Okay, you're right about this being the only one before the real deal, GTAIV. Can't wait! I'll just try the demo of CD and see if it's really that bad gameplay wise.

ewww @ pic 10 of last batch: super vsync error

WOWZA!!

That looks like soo much fun. I recon there'll be competitions to see who can jump from one side of the city to the other without touching the ground ;)
So long as the play area is large enough, and there is enough variety in the missions, this could be pretty good imo.

It's not really like Saint's Row from what I've played, or GTA. It gets those comparisons because it's in a sandbox environment. Think more along the lines of the Incredible Hulk game :)

    AndreasZ94 @KORNdog: They have like 2 animators i think so maybe i had my expectations in check but aside from the boss i think the hit reactions look great. The graphics are so good because its UE4 engine ... (45 minutes ago)
