He has a lot of effects turned off... that's also why he says it runs good for him, I imagine. Although I can't get it to run good on any setting... I actually play the game with everything completely maxed now, because I get the same damn performance anyway.

Anyway, the game is not super pretty by any means but that shot is not indicative of its quality. I'll take some more today and post them.

Nekro - it's not always about how it looks. I'll tell you what driving has a pretty lame feel, it's nothing like GTA IV. But the missions are damn fun. People shouting and yelling like GTA IV. It reminds me more of Just Cause. Which was a game I enjoyed for the gameplay NOT the graphics. If you can get over the graphics not being next gen and just enjoy the gameplay then it's worth it. Remember this is a $39, not $49 game too so I believe they realize it's not Crysis or GTA IV.

Why can't Saints Row 2 just be Saints Row 2 and not the dated cousin of GTA IV? The game is alot of fun as it is, I think people need to realize this and stop comparing it to GTA IV and just accept it as SR2.

If the game was not so close to Grand Theft Auto in gameplay and style people would not compare them, but they are. Is it unfair to compare GRAW to Arma? Crysis to Farcry 2? If someone asked "which fps should I buy" wouldn't we compare fps games?

You could say Just Cause was a GTA knock off, but no one did. Because they didnt come out near each other. Thats the only reason there is such a comparison.

I didn't find Crysis and Far Cry 2 to be the same kinda game either. Crysis was on rails, the suit was an advantage to the player. Far Cry 2 favored the PC AI NOT the gamer and the open play was nice to just drive around and explore. Not even close to me.

I guess some people accept games on their own merits and others need to be able to compare them TO something else.

Far Cry 2 was a great game. It took awhile for me to actually enjoy it. Once you get the hang of the bus system missions are much easier. Again, I think it's just people have different tastes in games. I thought the Witcher and Spore were two of the worst games this year. Others would argue they are the best. So what you call **** I enjoyed and vice versa. I will probably enjoy SR2 as well and most of you wont give it a chance because of the screenshots. You loss
