Saints Row 2 is an amazing game. It has an engaging plot with lovable characters, and it is not as over the top as its sequels. The gameplay is great and is often compared San Andreas', although I would say it is probably a bit better. The game constantly encourages you to do side missions, which give you "respect points" which are needed to access the plot-related missions. They also unlock new outfits and weapons, which can be quite helpful while you fight to make the Third Street Saints the top gang of Stilwater once again. The game's plot is surprisingly good, considering it is an open world sandbox. The soundtrack is awesome as well, having the best and most varied selection of radio stations I have seen in any game of this genre. The voice acting is top notch, and the fact that dialogues change a bit depending on which voice you choose for your character adds some replayability However, it is all set back by what might be considered one of the worst PC ports in gaming history. The game lags quite a lot, there are framerate issues, the audio quality is terrible unless you mod the game, and even the performance mods do not work all the time. This might put off many players and make them miss out on a great experience. In conclusion, buy it full price only if you're willing to try and make it work properly with mods, which might not always work. It is worth giving a try, due to how fun the game despite its issues. Get it on sale if you are worried about the game not working properly or are not too interested in the genre
Although Saint's Row 2 is one of my favourite games, this PC conversion is the worst I've ever seen. Editing the powertool and installing gentleman the problem of speed is improved a little.
Saints Row 2 was released back in 2008. Saints Row series, at least until the second one, reminds of the GTA series. It's an open world game, contains a big map to explore, lots of guns, and has quite an interesting story & gameplay. You do anything you want, just like in the GTA series. You can own houses and customize them, which is cool. It has some extra missions to do while you follow the story of the game, each of them to do specific tasks, which are fun. The characters of the game are funny, not boring, which makes it good for the story. The story is nice and lengthy, so, you gonna play more than 15 hours. In my opinion, it's the last good Saints Row, because the rest of the series went to a different direction that includes futuristic guns or aliens, so, if you want to experience a good game GTA-alike, Saints Row 2 is a good choice.
Don't get me wrong, GTA is a great game, i played the series from the very first 2D game, but after San Andreas, they just became too serious for my taste. Obviously, this is not a problem you will likely encounter in the saints row franchise... The game itself at first glance seems nothing special, in fact, you'd be forgiven for mistaking it for Grand Theft Auto, but if you actually play it, the differences becomes quite glaring. First of all, there are no sneaky missions, or ones where you have to drive carefully. Actually, if something doesn't explode, you are probably doing it wrong. Second, the missions have a kinda insane variety. You can carsurf, base jump, hunt bounties, and so much more. The best part is, you don't have to do is alone. The whole game can be completed in COOP, which is a lot of fun, thought it might make the game a little too easy, if you have a skilled partner. Oh, and the music is awesome! I lestened to Misery Business for a million times! :)
Is this game good? YES!! The best game in the series. If you like gangster stuff, but still enjoy chaos and goofy stuff this is the game for you! It has a serious story, but there are goofy and fun stuff to do all the time! Find easter eggs, play funny activities, heck you can even play video games or gamble. It is so good it's not beliveble!
