This seems to be caused by your HD streaming the data. Once I went to RAID 0 with my AAKS I have no more of that when driving. I think thats what he means about the game should come with an SSD. Most people's HD is the bottleneck that causes that. On the 360 you are only playing at 30 FPS and with dips prolly alot lower and the access speed coming off the disk is alot less pronounced.

Then why is it that my computer works perfect?

I don't have any kind of fancy hard drive. Nothing about my computer is over the top or special. I haven't had a single problem with the game thus far. And I'm being completely honest. Maybe there once was problems with the game, but I've been playing for almost a solid week with no problems whatsoever. No slowdowns, no lag, no hitching, no crashing.

And I never said Destroy's computer sucked. I just said the company that makes his video card sucks. Nvidia works for everything. ATI simply works *most* of the time. Look up "Tygerwoody ATI" in search on this forum. You'll see my posts from years back stating everything I am now.

ATI can make fast video cards. No doubt about it. They are ahead of the pack right now with a single gpu. But they NEVER seem to be reliable with ALL new games. They might hit 95%, or even 98% , but never 100%. Nvidia works for every new game released and if they don't, they fix it promptly.

If the statements above make me look like an "ass" so be it. But my computer works perfect and this game is fantastic.

There is always someone who can run a buggy game just fine. I was that someone on GTA4.

Doesn't mean the game was a good port. It wasn't.

That said, from what I can see the patches fixed it up a lot... I played it recently and it was MUCH better than it was at launch. The driving still sucked though.

Yea. I have to say, I agree 100% . The steering in this game is very retarded. Its very sensitive. Every car in the game handles like a 3 wheeler. And motorcycles are borderline impossible to drive. I will say that GTA definitely did their car handling a hell of a lot better than Saints Row 2 . If Saints Row 2 wasn't so easy, it would bug me more. But this game is so easy and relaxing to play, that the car handling I can overlook.

Default GGrrrrr

I just bought Saints Row 2 and am installing from DVD.

This is ****ed up.

Even with RUN "D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe" -install E: it still decides to stop installing and just does nothing so I'm just going to download it.

****ing useless bull****.

Did you ever get it running well?

I'll be buying a SSD soon to upgrade my current system. After I move SR2 to the SSD, be interesting to see if it runs smoothly finally.

Don't buy this crap, buy Just Cause 2 instead. Also there is a speed up bug in SR2 that they never fixed for Windows 7.
