    Sure they could be more ambitious and sophisticated but on that same note: SR2 and 3 have more going for them than meets the eye when you get past the juvenile craziness. Lots of depth and a level of customizations that put any number of RPGs to shame. Ridiculously satisfying and FUN gameplay with tons to do in the game. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s about. Making FUN games that people want to buy and play. I’ll let the sales figures speak for themselves. Not to put too fine a point on it, but SR is one of the few successful franchises and hot sellers that THQ has going for it right now. The sales figures speak for themselves.

    What Volition really needs to do is get back to making the kinds of games they used to make but bring it to the next level: Where’s my Freespace sequel? The next Descent? A Red Faction game that isn’t streamlined and dumbed down? I love the Saints Row games for what they bring but Volition doesn’t have to go very far to find inspiration and demand for what gamers want to see from them, and quite overdue at that.
