| Now SR2 had better driving than SR3, I'd say better than Sleeping Dogs as well. The cars weren't fast on the motorway, sure, but if you're driving an Attrazione through the city, the cars at least reacted to the sliding and to the environment. |
SR2 and JC2 had actual gears that don't go on forever..
You have GOT to be sh*tting me.
This has to be a joke.
SR2 is probably the worst driving mechanics in a game ever, the game was awesome, but the driving was f*cking awful, anyone who even knows what they are talking about knows that.
All vehicles were glorified go-karts, there was no suspension, no powersliding, just bumper cars glued to a track. Hitting other vehicles was just down right painful to watch, it looked AWFUL.
As for the infinite gears, SR2 is the prime example of the main game that has that very thing you say it doesn't, especially on the bikes.
Saints Row the third had highly more improved driving, it wasn't amazing but I could live with it to an extent and get a little fun out of it, but you couldnt get any fun out of the SR2 driving. Sleeping dogs was either on par with SR3 or above it.
JC2 driving might have been fine driving a super fast sports car round the race track, but actual handling, and driving every day cars was f*cking awful.
The only good thing about GTAIV was the engine, and the driving physics, the rest sucks arse, and nothing compares to this game aside from the early Driver games.
Anyway the point is, Sleeping Dogs is a way better game to play than JC2 or SR2.
SR2 is the best, but only as a co-op experience, otherwise Sleeping Dogs will be better, though may not be as replayable as SR2, but better for someone wanting a game to pass the time.
As for JC2, though I loved the map and the grapple and parachute technique which was extremely innovative, and we need a JC3. Having said that, the shooting mechanics were f*cking god awful as was the driving. It was fun to explore the map and find easter eggs and fly around but really all it is, is just sh*t to blow up to get 100%, There is only a few core missions which arent that fun due to poor gameplay in other sections. What would have made it better is if it had co-op, then I could see it beating SR2 for fun.
Not the point though, the driving is decent enough, the fighting is good, the map is great, the story is engaging and it felt like a nice world to live in.
It is not a hollow shell, it is a proper enviroment and a good simulation of the city.
And most importantly, very much worth playing.
