Saints Row 2: The Brotherhood

Saints Row 2: The Brotherhood

THQ released this trailer of Saints Row 2 presenting the rival clan of the Saints in the game: The Brotherhood. A quite well done trailer at that.

Looks intruiging, but certainly shows that all those screenshots were VERY heavily touched up.

Everything glows yellow... why!?

I liked the graphics in SR1 more, they were colorful.

What Qronicle said. Compare that trailer to:

And you'll see what I mean.

fair enough. but the screens look to me like the same ( the locals aren't the same, so ) in terms of tech: bump-map, self-shadowing, etc.

In the end who really cares about cutscenes, when there is already in-game footage from the beggining of the game... Hospital Break. Great Stuffz.

Looks exactly the same as the screens, looks amazing actually.
But i wonder how the car demolition physics and pedestrian physics are gonna look. I wish they'd have a normal gameplay trailer, you know from behind the character in the normal view angle when you actually play it.

looking good, definately makes me more excited for it than I was.

The first one had customizable controls, and I'm betting this one does too.

The boredom league, yhea.

that monster truck arena reminded me of that arena 98% of blinged out rides matches took place on, and holy shit i hope i'm wrong.

In terms of story, yeah. Saints Row isn't going to come close to GTA IV, although the original Saints Row had a decent enough story, and this one seems pretty good too.

But in terms of gameplay, the big difference between Saints Row and GTA IV, is that Saints Row is actually fun to play. Screw the realism, I want to throw people into trains, fly 50 feet into the air when I'm hit by a car, and perform wrestling moves on other players off skyscrapers.

Oh, and online co-op/System link :)

But, what's the definition of fun?

I know a lot of people that enjoy a good sim racer a lot more than an over the top "fun" arcade racer. Or enjoy a hardcore military fps over a casual "fun" shooter like say Stranglehold.

Either way, it's good to see SR 2 taking a different approach than GTA, but I wouldn't call it a better one. And I personally feel that SR has the worst kind of "humor" and completely lacks any sense of character/class. The environments are extremely unconvincing. The city is just extremely bland and generic.

Sure, GTA IV lacks the diversity that Saint's Row has to offer. GTA IV actually took a major step back in that regard...it has turned more into an action drive/shooter game. But with that, the quality of the gameplay is unmatched in games of this scope, and the gameworld is so well made...it's really an experience like nothing out there. My pick is GTA IV any day, however...I can see how other people might pick SR.

Why does everybody say that you have to choose if you're a GTA man or a Saints Row Saint? I played GTA, had fun and I'm gonna buy Saints Row 2 and have fun again.

GTA is for a well paced high quality storyline with a vivid city, Saints Row is over-the-top gangbanger Wonderland cheesy fun. Even more than the first part.

The two games share the same subgenre, but are vastly different.

The point I was making is that I don't think SR is a bad choice just because I prefer GTA IV and don't like the game. Not saying you either like one or the other per sé.

Though, my impression has been that many people tend to lean towards either GTA IV or Saint's Row.

While I can agree with your comments about the city, I don't quite understand why so many people bash Saints Row's humour.. It's pretty much exactly the same as GTA's is/was.

No it's not, not in a long shot. GTA's humor is clever, suble, distinguished. SR's humor is about talking as much smack with as many F and S words as possible without any real thought to it.

I'm sorry, but no.

That's exactly what you can say about GTA's.

I found very few of the jokes, since GTA III to be particularly funny. And they use just as many "low brow" jokes and swearing as Saints Row does.

    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (2 Hours ago)
