Unflatteringly referred to as GTA's idiot brother; Saints Row 2 has improved massively on its predecessor.
This time around, players burned by the seriousness and lack of options in GTAIV may find refuge in SR2. For pure fun, Saints is an excellent game.
However, technical issues and a little over familiarity hold it back from being a classic.

The plot picks up directly after the first. Following the boat explosion, you wake in prison, the opening mission being to escape. The rest of the game is spent expanding the 3rd St Saints and taking over rival gangs' territory. Mission structure is almost identical to GTA; markers indicate the next mission on the map. Except with Saints, reputation points also have to meet the required criteria. Reputation points are earned almost everywhere. When driving, near misses and stunts convert into points. The scoring system is reminiscent of Burnout, which is no bad thing.

There's a staggering amount of mini-games to increase reputation points. The standard vehicle missions return, with the taxi / ambulance fares. The tow truck is a fun vehicle mission. An import export garage has a wish list of cars to steal. There are gang tags to spray. Property management also plays a part; businesses can be purchased to get a cut from the takings. Veterans of San Andreas will indeed find a lot of deja vu.

But SR2 also has fresh ideas; diversions give it the sheer fun that was sometimes missing from GTAIV. Trail blazing is a favourite, riding a cross bike on fire and causing arson whilst completing checkpoint races. Heli Assault gives you the keys to an attack chopper, and tasks you with protecting members of the Saints while they conduct shady drug deals.
Fuzz sees you impersonating a cop for reality TV.

First off this game is not as pretty as GTA or as realistic, the latter for me is a good thing. I loved GTA 4 and believe it to be one of the finest games of this generation of consoles however did anyone else think that it took itself maybe a little to seriously, games are meant to be fun after all...arnt they!

In order to re-address the fun balance is Saints Row 2

Crazy, mad, but most of all major fun do everything GTA wouldnt let you in this huge totally open (from the start) gaming sand pit.

Create your own player, customise your crib, cars and gang hide outs. Take part in some mad side missions such as toxic avenger as you build your gang empire.

This game is all about having a good laugh and the online co-op mode allows you and a friend to double the fun.

Highly recommended.

I love games with freedom, and boy this one is filled with it!
I love that it doesn't limit what your character can be at all, be it a man who looks like a woman, a woman who looks like a man, or just a normal man or woman.
The NPCs are brilliant as well. It's very easy to feel like you could actually be friends with your fellow Saints (If they weren't game characters of course).
Overall, I really like this game, and would gladly recommend it to anyone looking for a game with more freedom than GTA, while still having it's basic elements at heart.

I have to say that this game really surprised me. I was one of those who looked at the graphics and thought mmm it's not as good as GTA4, it is just a rip off, it'll probably not be that good... but I urge anyone who has those thoughts to think again and pick this game up. It's BRILLIANT!

This game is always going to be compared to GTA because it's just so similar in structure but if GTA was an actual genre of gaming rather than a franchise then Saints Row 2 is like another version of that same genre. It does so many great things that GTA hasn't done yet and that is what surprised me the most.

Customization in this game is really what seperates the two games. Even though you're playing out a general story mode with the same character, you can make that character your own in so mnay ways and boy does it make a difference to how much you enjoy the game. If it's making your character a guy or a girl, selecting their gang taunts and which vehicles thye drive it's just so immersive and really makes you feel like you're a part of the game.

The gangs work so well in Saints Row 2. Play a few missions and earn the right to have some of your buddies come along with you to help you sort out some of the harder missions where you're being hammered by herds of other gangs. Your gang will follow you, jump in your car beside you, attack anyone who attacks you, they'll even steal another car to follow you if you don't have room for them in your two seater. And together you and your gang just look and feel great. I notice that gang system seems to run really smoothly and I've experienced hardly any issues.

The voice acting, missions, cutscenes, characters in this game are all top notch.

After having to endure completing gta4 which turned out to be like painting by numbers.that mission done,next,easy,boring,next....i was hoping to get some of that good old gta magic back with saints row 2 and thank god,the magic is back!!
the best compliment i can give the game is that it's loads of fun with tonnes of crazy stuff to do in a massive varied city that feels alive with all sorts of madness going on,it's like san andreas on steroids!! thank you god!!!!
the missions are varied and fun,the way you have to earn gangster points to progress to the next mission is great as it makes you act like a lunatic.
after you spend ages creating your character and their voice which is a mini game in itself,you then bust your gang boss out of jail.after that i had the whole city to explore and spent 3 hours causing mayhem,what a laugh!! my friends came round and the ones that still have gta4 are trading it in!! what took them so long?
the list of things you can do are endless,pick up a computer monitor and smash it in that annoying secretary's face,throw that moron on their mobile phone into that oncoming bus,steal that plane and smack a wing off and attempt to fly it with the wing on fire and bail out at the last second.pimp your pad,pimp your ride,pimp your gangster.there are so many things you can do that you should have been able to do in a certain other game,use people as human shields during shoot outs,dual wield weapons,pick up stuff like posts,fire hydrants,chairs and use them as weapons,use knives,clubs,swords,throw people at people or through windows.the list goes on,the game just doesn't take itself too seriously although you can play it that way if you want to and still love it.i better mention the graphics and sound while i'm at it.well i love both.
