I got to play Saints Row 2 with no PR folk in site for 10 hours straight!  I've churned out a little preview for ya:



Any questions?  (and yes, that is a picture of a hooker chainsawing another hooker in half...)

OK, I call shenanigans...



there's no way a Pirate and a Ninja would be working together... the Pirate would have his cutlass stabbed through the ninjas throat, and the corpse would be dragged behind the jetski as the Pirate drove away.  I mean seriously, leave WBS and Damage's sexual fantasies out of the previews KTHANXBYE!

Should I play the original before I start the sequel?  This game looks fun and KD's preview makes it sound even more enticing.

Well, the intro spells out pretty much all you'll need.  You won't have as much of a connection to guys like Johnny, but no biggie.

Great preview, Ron.

You sold me.  (well, the fact that it's got drop-in co-op multiplayer didn't hurt, either).

Eh?

Your line about the hookers, right under the preview image was confusing, is all.

As for SR2, I'm IN.  I actually just finished the first one this week.  If you don't get bogged down in the activities (which I had for a long time), it's not too long of a game.  Not to say don't do the activities.  Some of them are very fun.

hmmm... apparently I ordered the collectors edition-  I'll have to change that seeing as it doesn't have enough to warrant an extra 20 bucks.

Wow, totally gonna read that preview right now...this was already definitely a must buy on my list though.  Unlike any GTA games in history, i actually finished Saints Row 1 and had a blast all the way...

Neither can i say about any of the GTA games, and i've played (bought) them all..i never finished one and never had pure fun playing them.

Saints Row 2 is gonna KILL it.

i really loved the first,and was also pretty much the first sandbox game i had completed


i do want this one as well,but from the trailers i have seen the graphics,look no where near as good as the first game(one trailer i saw it was the insurance jobs side missions i think and the guy throws himself in front of the train,but it looked nearly last gen)

am i right or am i just remembering SR1 too fondly?

Graphics are vastly improved over the previous title.  I'm not sure what they did to those trailers or how old the build was, but trust me - the graphics are a far sight better.

same here.

great preview ron, as always.  

i'm looking forward to this.

overall, does it play like sr1 in H2H, gunfights, and driving or did they change anything?  other than the hostage grab, of course.  what kind of odd weapons did you see?  can you still store and reuse vehicles in a garage?  what about the choppers?  control, variety, customization.  it's obvious they went with the lighter side instead of gta iv's realism, but how detailed are the environments?  how immersive is it?  what about the sounds and music?  little touches really helped liberty city come alive, so how well does stilwater compare?  

thanks as always ron.  there's a reason i go here first for previews and reviews.

i have a copy if you want it.  you could go through it pretty quickly if you stick to the main stuff.  a month is certainly enough to get a lot of play time in it.  granted, it doesn't look like much of sr1 knowledge is necessary (heck, ron spoils the ending to sr1 in the preview, so it has to be an item mentioned in sr2 biggrin ) , but it's still worth playing in it's own right.

Problem being is that I don't have the time to play it. A few months back, sure. But 'tis the season to release all the games at once.

They already have in the trailers that they've released. Funny as hell.

If anyone is looking for the first one, I saw the platinum edition on clearance at Target for $10.  I thought it was a great game when I played it, but I can certainly understand the flood of upcoming titles outweighing an older game.

thanks as always ron.  there's a reason i go here first for previews and reviews.  

Sorry I hadn't gotten to this.  The weekend was a little rough for me.  As for odd weapons, you can weaponize a ton of stuff in the environment.  During the jailbreak I clubbed my way through several halls using a microwave oven.  I even clubbed down somebody with a trashcan.  Once I got the Katana I was pretty happy with my melee options, but I can also see the value of the taser.  smile  

As for storing and re-using vehicles, I don't think I touched on this in my review.  YES!!  A big resounding yes to this!  You can store vehicles in your garage and call on them, similar to what we had in GTA IV, but you can also store choppers on your roof and launch them from there as well.  With multiple cribs throughout the neighborhoods, you aren't ever far from your vehicle of choice.  Modding the vehicles (I like adding kneecapper blades to my vehicles for those pesky pedestrians who have the audacity to walk on my sidewalks) just makes it worth storing them.  When you take a vehicle out you have the option of retrieving it, or repairing it and then retrieving it.  

There is a decent amount of realism in the environment.  It is still essentially Stilwater that you knew in the first game, but little things like fires that continue to burn after you complete a mission to bomb a building are pretty cool.  That particular building seems to smolder indefinitely.  There are a ton of road signs and businesses to explore.  It isn't the nirvana of every building being an open world to explore, but it does the job well.

The sounds and music are subjective.  The voice work is top shelf (although I don't recognize any big names), but the music will be greatly improved by visiting the music store with a few grand in your pocket.  You can make your own playlists as well, so you should be able to find something you like.  Hell, there was even a Paramore song I'd not heard in here.

I'll put it to you this way - I played the game from the second the disc arrived to the second they came to pick it up.  I took a short break for lunch, but beyond that, I just wanted to keep playing.  With GTA IV I never really felt 'connected' with the characters.  Hell, I had to ask myself multiple times "Who is this Bell guy?"  I'm giving this one the thumbs up based on what I've played so far!

Man I can't wait for this.  A buddy and I were playing the original over the weekend and couldn't get over how much better, overall at least, it is than GTA IV.  I still say Rockstar has the story down, but as for game play Volition is king.

Yeah, I almost wish this one had been pushed off until early next year.  I don't know if I will be buying it with so many other releases coming. 

I hope it doesn't get totally overlooked as the first one was a very good game and this one seems to have improved on that in nearly every way.

In the time I played I didn't see but one frame hiccup.  It's hard to determine whether that was because it is running debug or not though.  Still, nothing to write home about.

Realistically does anyone ever do anything with the extra shit that comes with the CE aside from the initial unpackaging? Out of the handful of CEs I've bought the farthest I've gone is taping an included poster up on my walll.

sounds good ron.  that ce package looks pretty nice, so i need to decide if it's worth the extra $20.  this would be so much easier if every other FN game i was interested in didn't hit the shelf within weeks of each other.

I have the CE pre-ordered, but

Collectors Edition includes:

    * Embossed Tin
    * Saints Row 2 Money Clip
    * Double-Sided Poster/Map
    * Exclusive Art Book
    * Silver Bullet Shaped 512 MB USB Thumb Drive

really isn't making me feel the need to pay 20 bucks more.

Realistically does anyone ever do anything with the extra shit that comes with the CE aside from the initial unpackaging? Out of the handful of CEs I've bought the farthest I've gone is taping an included poster up on my walll.

Yea, I've found the GTA 4 CE metal locker with keys makes a nice drawer sized handgun locker.  It's currently in use in my socks drawer.

The bag also works as a good carry bag, i been using it to haul stuff like my walkman and crap around.  Kinda nifty, especially with the extra large strap it has.
