    Synopsis




    Return to a Stilwater more than 50 percent larger than the one you visited in the original Saints Row, but where danger still lurks on every road and in every alley. In Saints Row 2, the Saints must be restored to their rightful place as the kings of Stilwater and you're determined to make that happen, no matter what you have to do or who you have to destroy. All those who've wronged you will feel the bite of your vengeance as you take to the streets of Stilwater and vent your rage.

    Saints Row 2 takes you back to the world of the acclaimed original Saints Row with more combat, more vehicles and more excitement. Shape your Stilwater experience with fully customizable characters, vehicles, cribs and even gangs. Share the thrills and dangers with additional players as you barrel through the streets in the same vehicle, fighting a common enemy, or battle each other in an environment fully populated with police, innocent bystanders and rival gangs. Virtually any vehicle becomes a weapon in your resourceful hands, including planes, helicopters and cars. Explore more than 40 story missions, plus bonus missions, and experience all-new activities, races, cribs, weapons and districts in a completely transformed Stilwater.

      I absolutely LOVE Saints Row 2. It is easily my favorite of all four games. It includes some of the hilarious activities like Fuzz, Crowd Control and Insurance Fraud with some of the funniest fake commercials on the radio stations I have ever heard. My favorites include the eDestiny, Brown Baggers and Friendly Fire commercials which are just hilarious. There is a curious mix of humor and just sort of angry aggression in Saints Row 2 that somehow works. You can go from a major shootout in the cemetery that ends with you burying the son of a Japanese crime lord alive and then after that hear the eDestiny commercial on a radio station which advertises itself as an online dating site for convicted felons and has a convenient list of body disposal sites "in case that special first night gets a little out of hand." Pierce isn't nearly as annoying in this game as they would make him in 3 and 4 and the way the protagonist makes fun of him for listening to classical music was a nice little touch. I'm working on my third playthrough of this game and it's still just as hilarious the third time as the first. Even if you don't necessarily like Grand Theft Auto style sandbox games, which I don't, I would still recommend taking a look at Saints Row 2. The PC version of this game is incredibly crash happy, which is why I picked up the 360 version. The graphics were nothing special, even by 2008 standards, but the gameplay is solid and there's just something strangely satisfying about being able to drive on the sidewalk and watch people flying over the top of your car or just go crash through a fence. It puts you in a weird head space and you find yourself tempted to just ram into other cars in your way when you're out driving in your own car. This, however, is by far and away the best entry in the Saints Row series despite its rough edges.

      have always gotten more enjoyment out of saints row than grand theft auto due to the amount of things you can do outside of missions, also the game has a sence of humor and can be very funny. the graphics are good and there are plenty of vehicles as well as customization options for cars, gangs, even places you buy (safehouse, cribs). it is a neat aspect and they added and improved upon the last saints row game for xbox. the game is definatly worth checking out though if you are a parent the game does have cursing, nudity,obscene gestures, as well as violence of course so be weary of it if you are buying it for your child. i am dissapointed that the company has not put an update for trophy support, therefore this is a game that i have since traded in after beating for something else. i was hopeing they would put trophies in to warrant another play through, and possibly make me play the game in ways i wouldnt have otherwise thought of. if you are new to the saints row it is a GTA clone, but done better in my opinion. if you like grand theft auto you will probably like this game. definatly check it out. it is worth buying due to rental time wouldnt give you enough time to fully explore the game, unless you have a subscription based rental service to keep it as long as you want.

      i give this game a five star . for starters i've played the first saints row and i thought it was amazing. it was just as good as GTA not only that but it ahs things gta doens't have ( keep in mind this is the first staints row i'm talking about) like coustom characters you could make you person look just like you. you could coustomize pretty much everything about you. it was very nice. and with that said . the story did kinda suck it was ok but comparied ot GTA not so good. and with that said. the new saits row has a ton of new features. for starters multiplayer on the same consule. a lot of games don't do two player free roming this one does . not only that but they've taken the costomizing to a whole new level and the game play looks great i'm talking a good 50 hours of wide eyed enjoyment. i'm looking forward to it!!!

      Incredibly customizable. Engaging Activities that are so much fun you lose track of time. They really improved on the Hitman & Chop shop ..And I love the fact that now I can take any car to any chop shop! My Fiancé and I each are having a totally different game experience because we can tweak everything to the way we want our characters to be. From the gangs clothing to the voices to the different looks we have at our cribs and Well I knew this game would be great but I didn't expect it to blow my mind from the moment I sat down like it did. I LOVE IT!!! SAINTS ROW 2 ROCKS! I Have recommended it to a bunch of people already Because its the best game like it out their

      Amazing Game!!!

      I definatly reccomend this game to any fan of open world shooters. It is a massive palying ground and is filled with many ways of trasnportations. From jets, and quads to frie trucks and u.f.o.s!!! The weaponsare par, but the pimp cane shotgun is well above average!!! Driving has and continues to be Saints row weakness. Driving in this game is very unrealistic and sloppy. The explosions are delightfully beautiful. With that, rent it or buy it, get this game.

      Not a GTA clone

      Derek14790

      Many people say that SR2 is a GTA ripoff. Well it's not. Un like GTA4 where it trys to be as real as possible. As SR2 is all about having fun. The graphics aren't half bad and after a while u stop careing. The main thing is the gameplay. It's alot of fun. As u play u take territory that give u money so no need to conserve ammo. The story is vary funny the only thing i didn't like about the game were the minigames. They were fun but when your in the good part of the story then they say that u need more "respect". Overall SR2 is a great game thats worth your time.

      Fun. Nothing exceptional, though.

      I had more fun playing this game than GTA4. The fact that the devs didn't take themselves that seriously helps. The character has a super difficult time running over things like bodies and bar stools, which is absurd. Similarly, people in this game are as sturdy as telephone poles, even though in most other games you can usually knock them over and run past them. Not much replay value, but good for hours of offensive, ludicrous fun.

      After enjoying Saints Row 1 my hopes were very high for Saints Row 2. Needless to say I was not disappointed by this title. The story was interesting and the characters where great. I'm still playing this game to this day because it's so much fun. The customization in this game is unmatched when it comes to sandbox games. If you've played Saints Row The Third & never played the first two, do yourself a favor & pick up this game it is AMAZING!
