Watching last weeks TNT reminded me that I never played this, so I have decided that now is the time. I would prefer to get the PC version but some of Volition's PC ports can be a bit hit and miss. (Saints row 2 anyone) So what's the verdict on the PC version? Should I pick it up or stick to the 360?
So how is the PC version?
It's pretty great and there are a lot of mods out for it, including some that add in new vehicles (like a gigantic bulldozer) and weapons (reconstruction gun in single player). The mods aren't perfect, however. For instance, you can tell the game to spawn in whichever vehicles you like at each base location, but if the vehicle's too big for that spawn point it might cause damage to the surrounding buildings. The reconstruction gun works surprisingly well, but if you try to reconstruct material into the same spot where you're standing, the game will crash (so save often and stand back).
Even if you don't want to tinker with it, it's a solid port (MUCH better than Saints Row 2) and I frequently see it on sale for $5. Also a great, great game.
As for the regular game, it's solid. I haven't played it in a long while due to other games that came out, but it ran just fine when I played it.
