Saints Row 2 - 8


More info please.

Any frame-rate complaints? Bugs? etc...

What did they think of the storyline? Did they try out Zombie Uprising?

Saints Row- They mention there's quite a lot of bugs, and the graphics aren't as good as other games (I assume they mean GTA) but not so much that it ever becomes irksome, they really do seem to like it a lot and say you'll be laughing your tits off throughout. Sounds like it's oozing character and charm.

They briefly describe Zombie Uprising as "Awesome".

Sounds like a must buy.

:?

An Edge 7 for Pure is a hell of a lot more impressive than an 8 from OXM - at the risk of sounding like HSH here.

For some reason I thought it got a 6 in EDGE. :?

Ignore my idiotic ramblings.

Done, I've not used that scanner for a looooong time, it's a good job Vista doesn't require the software because the disk is long gone, sorry about poor quality, as I said the scanner is ancient.

Who's it for? Anyone that still refuses to embrace Pro Evolution.


Or: for anyone that's grown tired of Pro Evolution.

PES1 - Too much like running in treacle
PES2 - Too fast
PES3 - Random hand balls
PES4 - Too slow
PES5 - Balloon ball physics
PES6 - Online lag
PES08 - Far too strawberry floating fast

Wonder what new fault Konami will add this year!

I'd like to add Adriano as a fault to PES6.
