I was having the hardest time with Heli Assault then I found out that the guns were usually more effective than the Rockets and you didnt have to worry about splash damage. After I stopped using the Rockets, the Heli Assault missions were a breeze.

Came very close to finishing it today- the car was at it's last stop with half it's health, and I thought I was home free. Suddenly a Decker car pops in right at the gate, turns in and blasts the car with 2 rockets before I can even line up a shot at it, boom- mission failed.

I've been using just the guns. I think I may have understated just how bad I am at this activity. If I can't finish it off in the next day or two, I'll see if I can get my brother to co-op it with me. Thanks for the tips, guys. Much appreciated.
EDIT: Finally knocked that activity off. Now I just need to do a couple of the car hijackings and about 10 more survival challenges and I'll have my 1000/1000.

Anyone have an online pass for this game they wont use? Trying to let my brother borrow mine to play with a mutual friend, but not paying an extra $10 or $15 (not sure on how much it cost) for him to do it though. Message me if you have one and name a price if you would like, would also be willing to help you get any achievements in the game that you need for it if you have an extra one for him. Already got my 1,000/1,000 in the game within like a week and a half of it coming out and wouldn't mind playing it again.

Never played this series before, 20 bucks for SR1 and SR2 at GameStop and SR3 on sale at Best Buy for 40, Is it worth the 60 bucks investment to try this series out?

Thanks for The Feedback!

SR 1 and 2 were a lot of fun IMO, 2 being the best with the addition of co-op. SR3 seemed really cheesy and no where nearly as much fun as 2 was. SR3 has its moments, but they went too far away from the "hood gangster" play and went to more of a "corporate gangster" as well as changing the activities from something fun to something annoying and boring to me at least. Once I got all my achievements I haven't even put it back in and have no intentions on getting any DLC for it like I did for SR2.

Thanks For The Help!..Seems like the 1 and 2 Combo Would be Worth it But 3 may be a waste?...Trying to get some games to increase my backlog to keep me busy

SR3 wasn't a waste to me, I just didn't get the same enjoyment as I did from the first 2. I had to have played SR2's co-op campaign at least 4 full times before I was finally a little bored of it. SR3 just felt a little half assed to me considering they had 2 years to develop it and didn't include actual multiplayer (only co-op) this time so I was expecting a lot better. A lot of the features that made SR2 so re-playable to me were removed and that was a major disappointment as well as some really corny stuff added in.

I finished the campaign last night. I've got to say I was a little disappointed. I listen to the Giant Bomb podcast. They have been talking up SR3 like it is one of the greatest games of all time. They even debated naming it the game of the year. They were talking about how SR2 was awful and SR3 is so much better.

Now, I had fun with SR3, but I don't see where they are coming from. I felt like I was just playing another Saints Row game. I can't understand how they could love this game and hate the second one. They went on how so many crazy things happen in SR3, but nothing really seemed all that crazy to me.

Wishing I hadn't heard Giant Bomb talk about this game. I feel like they lifted my expectations so high. The game was great, but not as great as they proclaimed.

Beat Saint's Row 3 this week. Played through the second one in the fall (for the first time) cause I liked where this one was going, but I definitely liked SR2 better.

For starters, the gangs in SR2 felt like much larger/more important entities. Whenever you attacked a gang, it felt like you were attacking a gang. You went after their business interests, killed their distribution, stole whatever you could, assaulted strongholds, took out key members of their organization, and so on. In SR3, the only character associated with a gang was its head, and even then
Spoiler
. Attacking business interests were delegated to rinse-and-repeat activities, and the only lieutenants/enforcers you really faced were through assassinations.

The territorial takeover stuff was a step back too. Taking territory through missions really made it feel like you were taking over turf. It also meant it was impossible to wipe out a gang from the map without taking out the leader. SR3's style of business/property purchases just felt weak by comparison.

Anyone turn the difficulty down? I find that it's taking too many bullets to kill guys right out of the gate and I don't like dying from random car crashes/explosions. 2 shotgun blasts to kill a chick sometimes. No damage upgrades available yet.

This happened to me for awhile so I just started taking out morningstar as i saw them and got xp and cash for killing gang members. Also, taking cover and regenerating is a godsend.

Waiting for this game in the mail. Rented it the other day and liked it quite a bit, much better offering than saints row 2, which was a steamy pile of shit.

Thinking Skyrim was better is one thing, but agreeing with Brad's fucking retarded talking points about why it's better...ouch. I don't think I've ever actually talked back to a podcast before, but there's a first time for everything.

This game is awesome and hilarious. What makes a better game than violence and humor? Although it gets boring from time to time, overall it is a lot of fun to play when you're bored and trying to kill time.
On another note, the new driving style is great, kind of similar to that of GTA. Some other people i know werent sure about the Saints Row games but thought this one was great.

Downloaded the cheapy DLC the other day, tried to call him so I could see but he was "busy". So I drove into the city and started shooting some cops. Called him and he was on his way. I waited and the purple marker appeared on the map driving towards me.

This purple sports car came speeding around the car to back me up. Although he crashed straight into a tree, got out rolled on the ground immediately then got shot in the head so had a massive blood patch. It was so funny. After that we just tore shit up for a while.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Discovered this game late but I freaking love it. One of the best experiences I've had this gen.

Now that the GOTY version is coming out, I'm planning to pick it up and give my vanilla copy to my brother so we can play co-op.

How does the co-op work? Can I bring my fully leveled character into his game, and will all of my weapons, etc. be unlocked?

A part of me is hoping that it's like Arkham Asylum GOTY where it has it's own achievements that don't stack with the vanilla game just so I have another reason to replay it and purchase this.
