Saints Row 2
BEST GAME EVER
This game is the best one in the series. SR 1 didn't work SR 3 is OK and SR 4 is stupid but SR 2 is the best. its more thuggish if you will. you fight other street gangs such as the Ron-in Brother Hood and Son of Sun-die. you play as the infamous street gang known as the 3rd Street Saints you continue off of the 1st one but about a couple years later due to the fact that you were blown up and was put in a coma but ssh no spoilers to know to full experience you have to play it.
This is a TRUE adventure/action game!!
I've been playing video games for over 20 years, and by-far this is one of the best video games that I have ever played. Theres so much that you can do. Go shopping, buy a car, get weapons, start a street war, buy rims for your car, fly a plane or helicopter, etc. Your not just stuck trying to complete 1 mission. Theres missions and activities that you can do. Your choice! Grand Theft Auto has nothing on this one. In SR2 pretty much the entire city is accessible from the start. The only thing about saints row thats kind of fake is that when you go to the "Projects(big buildings in the hood)" theres hardly anybody outside. On a nice sunshiney day those areas should be PACKED with people. Come on game designers! Keep it REAL just like the rest of the game. Overall this is an excellent game. This game will have you up playing it until 1 o'clock in the morning. Also this game has a pretty cool ending; if you finally make it that far. Liking the 1st Saints Row is what made me buy SR2. Both are excellent.
Great game; serious fun
I picked up Saints Row 2 a few days ago, and I can already say that it is an absolute blast to play! It is inevitable that comparisons are made between Saints Row 2 and GTA4, but they are both different games. I would summarize the differences by saying that Saints Row 2 is far-and-away more enjoyable and way crazier! Also, the controls are better than GTA4 and RDR; you do not get stuck trying to go up and down stairs. It is a relatively fast-paced game and the vehicles handle really well. The missions are also pretty fun, and there is a decent amount of variety and ridiculousness. Also, the customization is very extensive, in fact, it is more extensive than most RPGs (you can even customize the vehicles). I would say the only downsides are that the graphics are okay (a few glitches here-and-there) and the sounds are hit-or-miss (repetitive music/gun sounds).
To me, this game still holds up really well even though it came out a few years ago. Buy it!
I just bought this game and tell you what i love it! Realistic graphics,challenging storytine (witch is alot of fun),i definitley enjoy this game i think this game will take Gtf of the top list a very cool game!i recommend this game to any one the most amazing shooter games in history i really love this game although is kinda of immature its alot of fun I had heard good things and bad things about this game long before I bought it.

Once A Saint Always a Saint
This game is freaking awesome the gameplay is awesome and the story is good and doesn't run together with the other missions like Carlos's death is never mentioned in the entire story after red asphalt. The graphics are pretty cool but i have to change the brightness in the game cause it gets so dark. The sound is amazing i can hear everything people talking guns blasting and explosions. Explosions are a big thing the cars sound nice and so does the music. Like i said the story is pretty cool but the game gets boring after awhile and the activities go by fast so i just free roam and mess around in the game. This game is really amazing i never played the first one but i watch my older brother play saints row 1. I seriously can't wait for the 3rd one this franchise is awesome Saint's Row for life. P.S get this game for the Xbox 360 Microsoft is pretty awesome and so is call of duty.
Saints Row 2 better than GTA4
I had purchased Saints Row 2 well after GTA4 thinking that Grand Theft Auto would satisfy my open world city driving games needs. The only thing that GTA has over Saints Row is that its got a little bit better graphics and that it has more online multiplayer modes. For the campaign needs i didn't like GTA at all. Playing by myself in a free roam game isn't always that fun. Saints Row offers an awesome campaign that allows Co op which is a plus in every game and makes me want to purchase it over the single player games. Why play through a GTA single player campaign by your lonesome when you can have a great time playing with a buddy in this game. Saints Row offers a lot of different kinds of gameplay throughout the campaign and is really a great game. From just driving cars to flying planes and helicopters while also racing bikes and driving boats. This game offers it all. You can also jump out of your helicopter and freefall then pull out your parachute. This games campaign is a lot of fun.
Saints Row is the more "Fun" GTA.
Saints Row 2 is the next installment of its past game, Saints Row. You wreak havoc throughout the new revamped city of Stillwater. Rebuilding up the Saints to their previous pride. This game has a lot of "Mini-Missions" that you can do if you are not doing a Mission. This game is built around free roam, that is what makes it amazing. You can streak in public, use Swords, Monster Trucks, Motorcycles, and many other new features that are included in this game. The Arsenal of Weaponry is unique, it varies from Stun Guns, Chainsaws, or even Satchel Charges. SR2 features Multiplayer Content, including *Drum Roll* Full Game Co-Op. The Co-Op is amazing, tackling on the rough streets of Stillwater may seem challenging, but doing it with a friend could make it somewhat... SUPER BADASS. The Co-Op has no limits, one player can be at the safe house, and another could be on the other side of town. Saints Row 2 is an amazing game, and I recommend this game to anyone who loved the previous one.
Volition deserves, great acclaim
This game is extremely well done. Though the graphics could have been improved, however this game has an amazing storyline, and a barrage of side missions that range from a hilarious septic avenger to, an awkward homicidal body gaurd. Also the controls work pefectly, and if you don't like them you can change it at anytime. Along with all of this, the game gives the player amazing power, you can customize you're character through clothes, voice, race, and so on. Along with this kind of customization, you can also lead a massive gang, and make them anyway that you want. As for the story, while the original was about a rise to power, this one is about redemption. After the end of the first Saints Row, you wake up in a Stillwater prison, from a two year coma, and guess what you do, break out. I wont explain any further, but one thing is for sure, it is better this time around, than the original ever was. It is a great buy.
I just got payed the other day and was just about to finish beating a couple of Xbox 360 games and was looking for something new. Saints Row 2 never crossed my mind. It looked like all the other Grand Theft Auto clones. But even if it is this one is a very good one. This is pretty much like Grand Theft Auto but not very serious or realistic for that matter. However, there are lots of customization as you can create your own character with clothing, hilarious voice work and mix and match your character's features to your liking. The game didn't offer the challenge I was looking for in normal so you should try playing on hardcore. The gameplay is fantastic while the animation has some problems but looks great anyway. Game is pretty lengthy with a great story that is playable in co-op and there are online modes. Storyline is simple but good. Controls are little different from normal games but can be changed. Amazing interface and sound. Not as awesome as Grand Theft Auto 4 but something very fun!
Worth every penny
I played the original SR and GTA4, and I can safely say this game blows away both games. GTA 4 was a great game, and I loved it too, but SR2 did something that GTA 4 never fully grasped: provided a purely mindlessly fun time. The realism of GTA 4 was kind of a downer (no regen health) but SR2 easily remedies that. The best part about the game is that fact that the game knows that it is completely unrealistic and takes full advantage of it.Pros: 1. Full Co-Op campaign = total awesomeness. 2. Driving is more fun than GTA 4. 3. Multiplayer is better quality. 4. The insane amount of crazy content (monster trucks, katanas, human shields). 5. New activities (riding around on a ATV on fire while blowing up cars) 6. Good controls and sound.Cons: 1. Graphics are slightly dated. 2. Not about to get any awards for story or outlandishness.Regardless of the cons, Saints Row 2 is definitely worth the sticker price. The story and multiplayer will last you probably until the next GTA or SR.
