Saints Row 2
I wanted to get Grand Theft Auto but since it has inappropriate content in it, my parents wouldn't let me. Since this is similar but does not have inappropriate content, I got this instead. It turns out this game is BETTER than Grand Theft Auto IV, so play it. Now. Right now.
WARNING: Do not purchase on PS3!
A few months back, I purchased Saints Row 2 on the Playstation store, as it was only $12 for the Ultimate Edition. But to my dismay, it had an issue... the weapon inventory doesn't open properly. It either wouldn't open at all, or it would close before I could select a weapon. Fortunately, I was given a one time refund from Sony. I decided to buy a physical copy of the game, hoping it would be different... and boy was I wrong. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game, ignoring the update, and starting again, but the issue still consisted. I own SR2 on Xbox 360 as well, and it has no issues whatsoever. If you own both consoles, buy it on Xbox 360 rather than PS3. The PS3 version doesn't include trophies, anyways.
I have never been much of a GTA fan, in fact, the only GTA game i really ever liked was GTA4. But now that ive played Saints row 2, im not even interested in playing GTA4 anymore. in Saints Row 2, everything is better. The graphics, gameplay, controls, storyline and even the weapons are better. I've been told that this game is repulsive, mostly by people who dont approve of games that encourage needless violence. I love this game, im not 18 yet but who cares. the 1st time i played this game i thought "wow" and i played for hours a day until i finally completed it, and even now i am still trying to complete all of the activities. Thats one of the good things about this game, even when you complete the main storyline, it never gets boring. You can still go around doing pointless but fun stuff. The weapons are amazing, chainsaws, automatic shotguns, dual weilding uzis, sniper rifles and RPGs. And theres aven a secret motorcycle that can defy gravity and ride up the side of ANY building in the game. i would recomend this game to any1 who likes GTA.
It's a good game
This is fairly a fun game. The graphics of course aren't as good as GTA 4 but I think it's more fun. Only because it has more activities and it's the kind of game you can play over and over again. As a matter of fact somewhere in the middle you'll probably stop the missions and just customize things, kill people, and roam the streets, for days. Great storyline and characters. GTA 4 is more intense and has a better storyline but when I completed it I was kind of bored and did not wish to play it again. On the other hand with SR2 I played it over and over and over again. I never get bored with it and it always is interesting because you make a different person each time. I would recommend it for anyone who isn't looking for a challenging game.
this is so so cool.you can do anything and its free roam and the cheats r just awsome.
Best Sandbox Game EVAR!
I'm a huge fan of free roaming sandbox games, so when I heard of this, I just had to pick it up. And as soon as I put the disc into my PS3, I didn't put down the controller for the next 5 hours. This game is BEAST! You can do just about everything you could do in GTA, but more. You can fly UFO's, snipe people from buildings, drive flaming ATV's, throw people into rivers, drive boats, cars, planes, etc. and SO MUCH MORE! Graphically, it isn't as good as GTA, but graphics mean nothing in Saints Row, cause the gameplay towers over GTA any day. The campaign is pretty descent, although I prefer GTA's story mode, and my only complaint about this game is their physics engine. I can ram a car into a wall at 120mph, but when I back away, there's hardly ANY damage on my car, and even though that doesn't really effect the gamplay by much, I really enjoy causing massive crashes and surveying the damage, which Saints Row 2 lacks. So that really annoys me at times. But, other than that this is one of the best free roaming/sandbox based games I've EVER played and for a cheap, low price of $12.99, I highly reccomend you pick this game up. :D
saint row 2?
look i've been playing video games for over 20 yrs i was and am still a huge grand theft auto fan but i think grand theft has met its match saints row is more wide open with the side missions if you are a grand theft auto fan definitely give saints row a try.... the story line is not only amusing but suspenseful.. there are so many side missions and things to buy and explore... you can also spray your gang sign on the side of walls as graffiti... you also get to pick your gangs clothing style and also the gang sign and gang diss. also there is a wide variety of vehicles to choose from.. and the city almost looks exactly like los angeles california..you can also customize your cribs with big screen tv's bars and so on...you can also have your gang members follow you on missions to watch your back.
Best Sandbox yet!
i would like to say this is one of the best games out their. first of all its better than GTA 1) cuztimization is awesome for starters you can make your character any way you want a boy or girl, you can make from a skinny Caucasian to a fat Asian. you can wear alot of things you can buy a add-on that you could make your character look like master chief if you wanted too. 2)it has high replay value you could beat the game 3 or more times and still want to play it. and the free-roaming is awesome.the cheat codes make this game even more fun their are many codes like on is evil cars or another is a UFO.and the game is so funny. 3) the multiplayer it has an amazing multiplayer yet, like the co-op you can co-op a mission with your friend or free roam with your friend. overall this is a good game
First was Great and Saints Row 2 doesn't Disappoint at all
following the events of the first game Saints Row 2 has a great story and now your character can actually talk
customization is incredible tattoos cars clothes only thing dumb is that you have to have plastic surgery to get a haircut
game play is fun shooting, cars, side quests and the main missions are all real enjoyable
about 25 hours to complete and with high replay value I replayed this game multiple times
a lot of dark humor in this game
cast is funny and likeable
only thing not so great about this game is the gangs
my opinion the gangs in the first game were a lot better but hey you might like them
Pros: Shooting, Great Sandbox, Cars, Customization, Story, a lot to do
Cons: Weird Gangs
Rip off= Maybe. Bad Game= No. Fun= Totally
After much begging, I finally got this game. I don't regret it one bit. I think I'll enjoy this more than GTA4.
1. The driving is perfect and there's no learning curve.
2. I can make my own character.
3. The whole city is unlocked at the start of the game.
Take my word for it. This game is awesome, but remember. Never do any of this in real life.
