Images of Saints Row

Images of Saints Row

Here come four images of Saint's Row, THQ's San Andreas clone. The game is what it is, but we can't deny how great it looks now.

It's been a long delay.... but seems worth it.
I for one can't wait.
Any news on the framerate?

It's fine, I played the finished XBL demo the other week. Solid 30fps by the looks of it. Come on leaps and bounds since I first had a go at any rate.

If the framerate's good and the pop-up isn't too noticable, then THQ has done a good job of creating a freeroaming game which uses the power of the 360 in a great way.
I'm really looking forward to checking out the demo when it hits the marketplace.

Playing this game online will be alot of fun running round shooting someone you now being a sniper on free for all multi player wow.

Looks pretty good apart from a few things, like in the first pic where one of the pedestrians seems to have lost his feet in the ground.
Commented on 2006-06-27 22:26:10
Looking forward to this one a great deal. Hell I bet I could play the Insurance Fraud mode for hours on end considering how long I spent on Stair and Truck Dismount! :)

some nice heat effects in the exploding car shot, the last shot also has some very nice sel shadowing going on :-)

Deftangel, how is the aiming in this game?
If it's anything like Far Cry Xbox360 I'll pass, that was the most horrible aiming system I have ever encountered!
Commented on 2006-06-27 23:05:59
deftangel is really a developer? =P

In regards to GTA style games I usually ONLY like GTA. Thats a franchise that I was absolutely in love with I use to play part 1 and part 2 like crazy. I thought to myself wow if only this game was put in 3D it could be the best thing ever and sure enough they did it. I'm looking forward to this game of course, but its like I'm devoted to GTA so much that this game regardless how good it is is at a major disadvantage to GTA simply because I've been a fan of the series for so long.

I'm open for trying new things though so I can't wait I hope the story is an interesting one.

30 fps everywhere? I can live with that.
Im more excited for Crackdown, but the more I see/read about this, the more i'm starting to dig it.
Commented on 2006-06-27 23:25:20
Omg I see dithered polygonal alpha ala Saturn! Oh well PGR3 used it for fences and it worked and ran great. Whatever trick gets them closer to 30fps without totally annihilating the graphics is called fine tuning and fine by me.

Tell me about it, the aiming was just a joke. Let hope we never see anything like that again in any other games on the 360. Imagine Gears of War with that aiming control, man would that be a let down
Commented on 2006-06-28 00:07:49
why they struggling with 30fps with this ammount of power, i thought they woiuld be aiming at 60fps


oh well even if had 1000fps this game will suck just as much as any GTA game and rip off that have followed

bring on dead rising

I cant wait for the demo to come out on live, it will probably be the playable demo they showed at this years E3.
Commented on 2006-06-28 00:34:31
i have faith that this will be the best GTA clone ever. even better than the real thing. (until GTA4 comes out that is). It nice to know that Rockstar finially has decent competion within this genre...

I want to be a homie not a homie wannabe.

I hope this game has the natural ganster cool vibe instead of the trying to hard to be cool vibe.

From watching the ign vids it just seems wierd when you see these old non hip developers talking about pimping hoes and getting people in the hiphop-know to authenticate their work.

Anyways can't wait to try the demo in August

    crookedmind Question for you guys, since most of you are console-centric. Is the playstation network cross compatible with their older consoles? For instance, do ps3 games also released for ps4 have the ability.. (2 Hours ago)
