Default Re: Saints Row 2 Release date?

For the record I love Far Cry 2 and I love Saint's Row 2, both are great games, I am just saying comparing them to Crysis and GTA4 is fair and lets people know more about the games and whether they would like them, which is half the point of coming to a forum like this.

Anyway... screens I promised are below. The first screen is the config I currently use with the game, which gives me 25-30fps when walking around and is playable, I suppose. I still get random framerate loss when driving around fast or entering a new area, but since that happens with everything on low as well, I have decided it is the game code.

The game looks good on PC, especially since you can make it so crisp. It's a shame it has peformance issues. People who enjoyed San Andreas should certainly play the game though... whether that means better looking on PC with performance issues to solve, or worse looking on console with mostly good performance, is up to you.

Screens (note that these are jpeg conversions and do not denote the full crisp and vivid picture in-game):

There is no doubt SR2 is lesser of a game than GTA4 in regards to leading edge. However, each game must be taken for what is it, not for what it is not.

To me, SR2 is like a GTA:SA2; crazy lots of stuff to do fun.
GTA4 is pricier, simplified, and has more realism in looks and gameplay.

NarcissistZero, since you compared SR2 to GTA SA, then I would probably hate the game.

edit: Destroy actually compared it to GTA SA

So can anyone explain why this game runs so poorly? It's definitely not GPU limited cause running on 1 of my 2 GPUs makes zero change in frame rate.

My cpu is never maxed out in this game on either core and as shown, quad core is not fully used either.

So how come the 20ish fps everyone is getting?

Its got a max cap that is 32 fps (from the dev). looks to be more CPU limited. My frames are with 3.7Ghz q6600.

That's pretty much how the game looks when maxed out, actually.
