Amazon.co.uk Review

Saints Row 2 brings true freedom to open-world gaming. Players can play as who they want, how they want, and with whomever they want in this sequel to the much acclaimed and tremendously successful Saints Row. Set years after the original, the player finds himself in a Stilwater both familiar and strange and challenged with bringing the Saints back as the rightful kings of Stilwater and bringing vengeance to those who wronged him.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most fun title I have played in years 28 Oct 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played both past GTA games and the first Saints Row I do not buy into the whole you can only like one or the other.

First of all lets get the comparisons out of the way. GTA IV looks better and for a critic would be well ahead of Saints Row 2. However GTA IV is based on realism, Saints Row 2 is based on fun and that is the main theme of the game fun.

The graphics a bit more cartoonish than GTA IV and the cars handle in a different way (yes GTA IV's cars are more realistic). However I found Saints Row 2 more fun to play.

The story continues five years after the first game ends, you are just waking up from your coma. The city has had some changes but the main layout of the city is similar. There are a few new gangs and some new missions to try out (the respect aspect is the same, gain respect before trying out the next stage). I like this effect as it makes you try some of the sub games. In GTA IV there is no incentive to carry out the sub games but in this you must play some or you can't continue with the mission. The missions themselves have a great feature: if you die or fail in a mission you can 1) restart from the last checkpoint 2)replay the whole mission 3) continue the game. This is great as you don't have to spend half your time driving round the city again and again if you are getting stuck on a mission.

The attention to player detail is amazing. You can customize any part of your body you wish. You also have a wide variety of shops to spend your money on as well as cribs (you have to buy these) and customizing them. Also cars, bikes, jewellry and tatoos can also be purchased. I wish they would bring in an option to create your own tatoo.

5.0 out of 5 stars More fun than a drive-by shooting......... 21 Oct 2008
By Mr. A. Sands VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First up, I never played the first Saints Row, so no comparisons from me about that one. Secondly, I have played GTA 4 so I can make the inevitable comparisons.

Before GTA 4 came out, I was so taken in by the immense level of hype surrounding it, and was expecting something that would blow me away (with an RPG). What happened was that it confirmed what we all expected deep-down, that nothing really new or original could be added to the series. The only thing they could add (or try to add), was a sense of realism. This is what, in my opinion, turned GTA from an awesome game into an ok game.

Saints Row 2 changes all that. One word sums this game up from start to finish, fun. Everything about this is about making sure that you, the player, has fun and doesn't have to spend hours driving around the map repeating missions every time you die etc. People have been moaning about the driving/handling in this game, but why? It's arcadey, and matches the game perfectly! If I wanted a realistic driving simulator I'd play Forza/Gran Turismo.

Graphics wise, ok, it's not as good as GTA 4, but again, so what! They're colourful and vibrant, unlike the drab gray-brown that was Liberty City. Glitch-wise, yes this game has glitches, but name one free-roaming game where there aren't any glitches at all. This is easily outweighed by the sheer number of improvements made in this compared to GTA:

When you die you keep your weapons, so no worrying about dying and having to re-stock your arsenal.
Once you put a car in your garage, it will always appear there, no matter where you leave it/what you do with it.
If you die during a mission, it doesn't re-set you back half-way across the game map to have to drive there again.
etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's those little touches 25 April 2009
By lankey
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Obviously this game will be directly compared with GTA IV. This is the first Saints Row game i've played so there can be no comparison with the first of the series.

The character creation is ok, withoug being overly elaborate. You can be either male or female, young, old, asian, african, european, skinny, fat or anywhere inbetween. Add to that the clothes and outfits you can wear, plus jewellery & tattoos and you have a lot of looks you can pull off. The vehicles themselves can also be upgraded with various mods which again adds a bit of personal customisation.

The driving controls took a little getting used to, but after a while they feel quite normal. The ability to put the vehicle under cruise control might be useful to some but i prefer not to use it as i then feel more in control.

The game itself is addictive, a lot of fun but at times can be a little frustrating. For example some of the 'diversions' include levels which increase in difficulty as you progress, but then the last level of some diversions is sooo much more difficult than the previous one. One saving grace is that you can retry from the level start, or come back to it again later.

One thing that needs sorting out in any sequel is the problem of vehicles hitting some kerbs which stops them moving forward instantly. Surely the vehicle would just slow down and still make it over. Also in a mission my vehicle, which was being driven by a computer controlled character has got stuck in a position whereby there is no way out, and no way of me taking control; only option to restart from a save point. Apart from these two problems i've not encountered any real play issues.

One of the most surpising things about Saints Row 2 is with the story.
