Zero Punctuation: Saints Row 2

Well I'm surprised he gave it a chance, and shares my opinion on the matter. I still think GTA IV is the "better" game - but I find Saints Row 2 way more fun and addicting.

"Realism is an acceptable sacrifice if I get to throw old ladies into jet turbines"

AMEN!

For me, the best ZP to date. I agree with everything said about GTA4, for me that game is the most depressing/overrated game I've ever played.(I know most disagree, and I'm not looking to start an argument over this).

Bah, I didn't like this one much but that's probably due to me finding games like Saints Row and GTA incredibly boring most of the time. Still if that batman game he suggested ever came out I would so buy it.
I wonder if Yahtzee will do a GOW2 review, it is one of the most anticipated games of the year. I wouldn't count on it based on how he treated it in his e3 trailers video though.

yah i know its so funny. ANyway, great review.

So.. uhm.. I'm probably the only one who still hates Saints Row 2?.. I hate the game like a fat boy hates working out.

Hmm... call me slow, but I still haven't even finished GTA IV. Maybe that says something about the gameplay. I liked an earlier GTA better, where I looked at the stats toward the end of the game and discovered I had killed over 10,000 people. Well COME ON! The sidewalks are always less congested! Well, not as congested with cars and things that can damage MY car, anyway. Getting five stars was FUN, and I could usually get away with it. Maybe I'll find a convenient attack helicopter or tank in this game eventually...?

I mean, sure, in GTA IV it's gratifying to hit a minivan at 100+MPH with a police car and see the driver crawl out on fire and hear a little kid screaming 'mommy' and die as the car explodes... but it doesn't happen ENOUGH.

And WTF happened to head shots? Used to be able to POP heads with the rifles. Now you can stand over a body and shotgun the head repeatedly and nothing happens. 'Realism' my ass! It's like frickin' DISNEY took over the development.

NIce cant w8 2 c...1st???

It's amazing, every week practically somebody just has to post something like this, and every week they are banned. It's like watching lemmings run off a cliff or something.

P.S. The super villian game would kick so much ass.

Just don't let Molyneux near it.

Was a good review, but I think the Escapist Show preview spoiled it a bit. But it did leave out the rubbish music.

I liked the review, although I was hoping he'd do Fable 2.

Come to think of it, body counts should be 'Achievements'.

Start off with 'Thug' and work your way up to 'Total Genocide'.

I mean, really, you'd think killing off a million people would put a dent in the traffic....

Funny as always. :)

I just wish you'd turn down the loudness of the intro/extro-music. I always have to manually change volume to avoid popping my eardrum. ^^

yay a team rocket reference, Yahtzee was once a Pokemon viewer!!!

PS. liking that villain game idea, let's petition some people and get right onto it.

Ahh, good! Someone else noticed the giant Flying Circus foot!

I am not a fan of these sandbox games, and so, I will not be playing this one anytime soon.....now if you will excuse me, I have to go expose myself to a little old lady

Aww gutting, I was expecting Dead Space, Fable 2 or Fallout 3.
Good review none the less!

Was that a 9/11 joke I spotted in the review? Darn you Yahtzee you sadistic shmuck.

I was on the fence on whether to get Saint's Row 2 but now I think I'll buy it or at least rent it.

I wonder which series will have killable children first, GTA or Saint's Row?

I will admit that one of my problems with GTA4 was that, while it is the descendant of one of the progenitors of sanbox games, it just was too realistic and slow to enjoy as a sandbox game. I still say my favorite in this kind of sub-genre is Crackdown. That game actually had me runnning around doing random stuff just to increase my stats and see how high I could jump or how fast I could drive with the next upgrade.

Has anyone else noticed the 'censored' boxes over the genitals have gotten bigger since the first review?

very funny as usual :)

Just a quick note and pardon me if I'm over my head on this, but under the video, it stills says Yahtzee writes for PC gamer. I recall reading his last PC Gamer back page months ago. Maybe he picked it up again ?

Sooo ... Yahtzee wants Evil Genius with GTA elements or GTA with Evil Genius elements?

And costumes. In neon colours.

You worry me at times...

I actually came to this thread expecting to see a mob of rampaging GTA fanboys... I'm almost disappointed! :]

Entertaining as always and great to hear that Yahtzee is back to his fast talking self.
Oh and "A-bloody-men" to the brown/grey look of a lot of recent games. That has been bugging me for some time too.

And please put me down for that superhero villain game please. I'll take two copies.

Baby Tea:
I'm fairly surprised he LIKED the game (For the most part)! But just remember: Watch it while mentally adding 10% more bite.

bile*. He said bile. But yeah, 'twas a very good review.

Gaaah...what's causing all the crashes at the moment? Must have tripled psted somewhere.

If Molyneux got it, it would be like giving a hand grenade to a 2 year old. Yes, bad things would happen....but....how amusing would the "POLICE CAMERA ACTION" stylee show be :).

P.S. i <3 Molyneux

2)I would have never, EVER, *EVER* (shifts to 1999 Chris Jericho)EEEEEEEEVER (shifts back to normal) expected Yahtzee to make a Team Rocket reference.

Me, either, although it raises the question... Does Yahtzee like Pokemon games? I'd imagine not, and that he'd run them through with rusty nails shaped like penises(see the Turok review), but it would be an interesting watch.

On the main point, I've only played a borrowed copy of the first game, and I found every single point in this review completely backwards compatable with the last one. Good, wholesome, honest, sandboxy, hypothetical barrel of hypothetical monkeys fun, but more annoying than an actual barrel of actual monkeys.

Please delete this, it was an accidental double post due to slow college servers.

Oh my god, the world must have come to an end. Ben likes yet another game. This seems to happen quite a lot recently. First it was Braid, then S.T.A.L.K.E.R and now this. Would this mean that the gaming industry has grown better? Meh. But I would like to see Yahtzee reviewing Little Big Planet.

Lets hope Rockstar Games are watching. I really can't be arsed to complete it.

I worry me at times. Although this time it's ok, I just noticed the box was as big as the old lady. Then that got me thinking back to other censor boxes.

Yeah.

What was that game that made him lower his standards? Halo 3?

Agreed.

I would so totally play that sandbox villain game. There's a fortune to be made there.

if only I hadn't eaten lunch I might have been first ah well time to see what yahtzee has to say this time..

Damn you full server! Where's my Yahtzee fix?!
