What system is that on? It isn't PS3 or XBOX360 is it? From those screenshots the graphics look very last-gen, PS2 quality or something.

[quote="SoldjahBoy":3tmuzksk]The main thing that pissed me off the most about GTA 4 was having to entertain your borther and girlfriend etc every 5 seconds... though, driving while drunk was easily the coolest and most fun thing EVER in a "GTA style game".

You can ignore the whole relationship part, even turning it off.
Walking while being drunk is even better!

You can drive drunk in both games (I think :D ).

I've played all the 3D GTAs too, and I have both SR and SR2.

For me, I was really looking forward to GTA4, and enjoyed it very much, but about half way through, the plot lost it's edge, as did the missions.
I think Rockstar rested on it's laurels a bit too much with GTA4, and having completed it, I prefer all previous versions (including the very average San Andreas).
So much so, I sold GTA4 as soon as it was complete, without really wanting to complete all the little extras.

As for Saints Row and Saints Row 2, the first one was a great effort, despite it's problems, and the second one was a marked improvement in almost every way.
I've completed Saints Row 4 times I think, and I've already completed Saints Row 2 twice since it's release.
More importantly, both versions of Saints Row are still on my shelf, and will no doubt get another outing before the year is out, whilst GTA4 is long gone.
Even the new downloadable episodes on XBOX Live aren't enough to make me go and pick up a second-hand version.

I was really looking forward to both GTA4 and SR2, but I personally feel that GTA4 dropped the ball and could have been a lot better, and Saints Row 2 was everything that I wanted GTA4 to be, and more.
Because of this, I am really looking forward to the next version of Saints Row (should there be one), but I'll need to be convinced that GTA5 will be worth bothering with.

Sponge.

It's the PC version, which, by the way has improved textures and lighting over the console versions.

It's running in 1920x1200, 8xAA, full HDR lighting... no motion blur, because it sucks.

It just happens that SR2 doesn't have super fantastic graphics. They aren't THAT BAD, but there are a lot of games out there with better graphics that are around the same age, or even older. Honestly though, I couldn't give a toss about the graphics of a game if it has, say, some of the best gameplay ever... like SR2. Saying it looks "last gen" is a bit bullshit really...

Here is a screenshot of "last gen" graphics.... at 750x600 which is higher than the PS2 could output with moving graphics.


and Saints Row 2 on PC... at the same vertical resoltion, 960x600 (widescreen)


Graphics aren't everything, though they still whoop the shit out of a PS2...

If I want to make my character look like an emaciated gimp crossdressing YMCA loving hooker flasher midget, and jump out of a plane naked to land ass first in the face of an old granny... Saints Row 2 is the game to play.

I know graphics aren't everything, I was just making the observation that from the screenshots the graphics look quite underwhelming for a modern game, especially compared to GTA IV. I've no idea how the game is, I'm sure it's great, I like the idea of freedom and customisation.

graphics arent at all important, when it comes down to shaders and post processing.

as long as models can show what they are properly and not make mario look like he has a tetrahedron instead of a nose, i couldnt care less.

the graphics arent at all bad anyways.

cod 4 had terrible graphics IMO if you put it that way. it doesnt have much to make it look nice besides the texture detail and model detail. bumpmaps and grass look terrible and grainy.
