Saint's Row images

Saint's Row images

THQ also released these images of, again, one of the most promising spring games: Sant's Row. THQ's next-gen line-up is surprisingly promising! I also added two possibly older images we didn't have in the database.

I think it looks worse, it didn't use to have Aliasing...now it does. Very noticeable and distracting now, and is there a problem with Devs? There's 512 MB of Ram in the damm thing, i'm seeing way too much Xbox caliber textures in this game.

Did the GTA series ever have graphics as good as the best looking games on PS2? Or even on Xbox when it was ported? No. Why is that? Cause the game spanded such a massive distance. The same applies to this game. The graphics look way better than any normal game, yet it is bigger than anything seen before. I'm liking the character customization, every screen they show your charater looking like someone totally different. The third pic, the one with him jacking a car with two women in it, shows the player charater and he looks so different than the other ones from previous picutures.

Fantastic looking game, the (early) next-gen jump is there when you compare it to games of a similar level of freedom. Games like this will look better, but only as developers learn the tricks.

Yeah, it does look a *little* worse for ware than previous screens perhaps--but I've always thought this title was pretty impressive given its apparent scope. Xbox quality textures? In a game this expansive? It ::only:: has 512 megs of ram--after all ;)

If I were nit-picking this I'd probably focus on the 8 corners lamp in shot 4. Now that is teh low poly..but it's not like scene's won't have budgets this gen.

the geometry looks nice but the textures need some work. its not finished though so it will get better

Sorry guys, but some of these Screens look damn ugly.
I have seen this game before, and it looked better.
This however is not what 360 is capable of. Thats a sad thing, because i really love this kind of GTA games, but i excpected a lot more form an next gen title.

By the way, i think that the devolpers of saints row arent that good at all.
One of the guys said in an interview once, that they couldnt bring helicopters in saint row cause the dvd drive would be too slow to stream the whole city from the air, at least in hd tv. What i have to say about comments like these? I bet Rockstar could do that.
Yes, Helicopters in Saints Row. DVD Drive. HD TV. A matter of skills in my opinion.

it has nothing to do with the dvd drive. They said they couldnt put planes or helicopters in because of the harddrive

Well, the need to include helicopters just for the sake of doing it is up for some debate in my opinion. Sure, it took you from point A to point B fast in GTA, but if I understand correctly, you can take a cab in this, so it shouldn't really be an issue.

Games probably don't change as much as we're lead to believe through sporadically released screenshots, and I have full confidence that it still looks just as awesome as it did at X05 (TGS?) and that once it's running in front of us, it'll look great.

The concern is; can they offer character behaviour to match the otherwise more sophisticated looking game world? Can they offer a good mission structure and a half decent story? Can they avoid the bug pitfalls Driver 3 happily drove right down into? That's really what they ought to be working on right now. Oh and a solid framerate. Haven't had one of those GTA like games with a steady framerate in a.... forever.

One thing about the anti-aliasing hardware. It's done by the hardware and I'm not sure if a screen capture can easily grab it. A photo should, but digital captures on the hardware probably won't.

As far as the lackluster texturing goes, from the videos I saw before the scope of the city and the physics in action kind of make up for this. It will not be the prettiest game, but it may well be a heck of a lot of fun.

Although the game looks nice game developers NEED to stop trying to emulate the success that only Rockstar has been able to achieve with these types of games. Where's the imagination gone?
Commented on 2005-12-10 13:52:42
Where's the NEXT GENERATION!!!
Smooth graphics but not detailed n the textures r awful
just see the chair in the 4th pic..
I hope they fix it

I think aliasing is just a problem with certain games in screenshots, because even some games I own have no jaggies while I'm playing, and they look jaggy as hell in the screens I've seen.
Commented on 2005-12-10 19:05:48
Screenshots never tell the whole story, I thought PDZ graphics were going to be terrible, thats until i played it. By the time this game is released i think it's going to be class!
Commented on 2005-12-10 20:46:42
i think you people are definiately nit picking. This game looks good considering the size. not to mention these are stills. We've all seen the game in motion, and if you look past the framerate in the early builds, its a beautiful game.

the latest shot do not match up to the previous ones seems like we have been misled similar to the ghost recon shots
