“Saints Row revolutionized the open-world action genre as the first game of its kind on next-generation hardware,” said Bob Aniello, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, THQ. “Achieving Platinum Hits status in just nine months is a tribute to Volition’s talented development team, and we look forward to leveraging their proprietary open-world engine to continue pushing the genre forward.”

Features:

  • A fully dynamically lit world: Car headlights and muzzle flashes light up the world of Saint's Row.
  • Next Gen shaders allow the creation, in real-time, of effects previously reserved for movies.

  • Freeform game play gives you increased choices: Purchase an item at a store, or rob the cashier at gunpoint and run away with the cash, unless you prefer to break in at nigh for a full-scale robbery.
  • Ragdoll physics allow for real-time reactions of the game characters and objects to impacts, be it combat or collisions.
  • Extensive car damage modeling means vehicles bend and crumple when they hit obstacles and an incredible level of detail in the breakdown of components when vehicles explode etc...
  • On line gameplay offers unique challenges and rewards.
