On a side note I'd like to know how much Rockstar learnt from the first Saints Row on how to make a good GTA game as Ive not played either SR or GTAIV.
The first saint's row was fun, but it did miss alot of the elements GTA San Andreas/Vice City had. I do think the city limited what you could do as well. I haven't read much on SR2s environment but it needs to be alot larger than the original in my opinion.

GTA IV, was a good improvement in the series but again not all GTA elements from the earlier games were there. I can't wait for the PC version to come out and the modding community to pick it up.

SR actually made a lot of improvements to the genre which GTA4 copied... it also looked good for the time, and ran smoothly for the most part.

The big flaw of the game was the crap story and boring world... it has nothing near the level of immersion and satire of GTA.

I liked the City of Stillwater. Some the of the things the citizens would say were really funny. Especially when people who'd never even seen such a game would watch you play. ::

Here's hoping this game doesn't disappoint like GTA4 has.

Did I say he couldn't?

What I was going for was if me meant gameplay or performance. If he meant gameplay he will most likely love SR2, as it is more like San Andreas. If he meant performance, I doubt these developers will get more out of a PC than Rockstar can.

See what I mean?

It wont. Better story, more fun, more freedom, better voice cast, better music.

A lot of this is subjective, and I totally get why some people would choose SR2 over GTA4, but... better story? Better voice acting? I have to call foul on that one

Way better. Story is better to. It's not quiet as in depth, but it's more enjoyable, plus it's taking over a city. Not being all dark, brooding emo soldier.
