| I downloaded Saints row:The third the game 3 days ago. I got it for free since I could test the incredible PS Plus service for free.|
I don't have the time to write everything but I'd say that this game has to be the technically worst sandbox game I've ever played!
The framerate can be 60 fps at some place and completely out of control at another. The animations are horrible in certain situations. Playing the game on the highest difficulty (hardcore) is horrible because the missions are so freaking unbalanced.
You can play 4 missions in a row without having a single problem and then there's the mission that you just can't beat because you have to heal some badly programmed Gangmember A.I. This will force you to change the difficulty for this specific mission unless you're really lucky.
It really feels like no one @ THQ tested the game on "hardcore" before they released it. I don't see anything fun about getting killed due technical issues.
I understand the Gametrailers review now and I don't get the metacritic score. It's WAY to high.
I just uninstalled the game and I'm pretty sure I'll get something a bit more valuable with ICO/Shadow of the colossus...
I gave it a chance but a sandbox game should be way more polished in many aspects.
I don't know about other versions but I wouldn't recommand this game to anyone.
You're complaining that a hardcore mode is too hard.
If you can't handle it, don't play it. You don't actually hate the game, you're just pissed off that you can't beat a mission without swallowing your pride and turning down the difficulty.
As a sandbox it really isn't that bad. the co-op mode is the main source of fun.
