Product Description

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.

From the Manufacturer

A worthy successor to the open-world gameplay hit, Saints Row, Saints Row 2 features all new customization options, including player's: gender, age, voice, crib and gang. In addition, the sandbox just got larger with a totally transformed and expanded city of Stilwater, offering all new locations to explore with new vehicles, including motorcycles, boats, helicopters and planes. Saints Row 2 will be playable online in 2-player co-op through the entire singleplayer campaign or in the all new open-world competitive multiplayer mode never before seen in the genre.

Five years have passed since your former Saints crew betrayed you. As you awake from a coma for the first time since that fateful day, you find the Stilwater you once ruled is in disarray. Unfamiliar gangs have laid claim to your territory, rival factions have taken over your rackets, and cash-hungry corporations have laid waste to your once proud 3rd Street home. Abandoned and left scarred with an unrecognizable face, you seek out a plastic surgeon to begin your new life on the streets. Yet some things never change in Stilwater.

Respect can only be earned and that requires a lifestyle that reflects your unique personality. Your crib, your crew, and your character define who you are on the streets and how you are perceived. The image you portray is as important as the decisions you make in a city ruled by false bravado and impulsive behavior. The only constant is the need for an identity that reflects your individuality. But style and image can only take you so far in a world where actions speak louder than words. Sometimes sending a message to your enemies requires heavy lifting, like that of a rival gang member into oncoming traffic. Respect in Stilwater needs to be taken, and what better way than to grab it from the hands of a gang full of enemies by means of a satchel charge, a flame-thrower or those minigun rounds you've been saving for a special occasion.

Meet Your Homies
But remember that the fight to reclaim Stilwater does not have to be waged alone. The Saints once ruled these streets as a crew of brothers, and their return to the top can help be secured through co-operative alliances. The time has finally come to seek revenge against your rivals to reestablish your crew as the rightful kings of Stilwater, but the streets are crawling with bangers. Check out the crews you'll run into and remember their faces and their ways:

The Third St. Saints - a gang of 'Saints Row 2' 3rd Street Saints
Once the kings of the city, the Saints have been forced out of their titular home of Saints Row by the Ultor Corporation, a giant conglomerate that gentrified the once poor neighborhood. Now operating out of an abandoned underground hotel, the Saints are looking to reclaim the glory that they lost several years ago.
The Ronin - a gang of 'Saints Row 2' Ronin
One of the newest gangs instilling fear in Stilwater, the Ronin recruit from both the city's Asian population as well as among the immigrants. Their crimes involve peddling vice through gambling, prostitution, street-racing, and protection rackets, and their power has reached even into the boardroom of corporations like Ultor.
The Sons of Samedi - a gang of 'Saints Row 2' Sons of Samedi
Influenced by Voodoo and a history of military corruption in Haiti, the Sons of Samedi are known for their potent combination of spiritualism and fearlessness. Members are attracted to the gang out of respect for their methods, through coercion or a desire for easy income generated through trade in their designer drug called "Loa Dust."
The Brotherhood - a gang of 'Saints Row 2' Brotherhood
Formed from the cast-outs and dredges of Stilwater society, the Brotherhood is a solid force of strength and intimidation intent on revenging itself upon the police and city. Specializing in violent extortion, they forego subtlety and nuance and simply take what they want, all the while flashing their allegiance with piercings and tattoos, bright colors, and gas-guzzling trucks.
The Ultor Corporation - a gang of 'Saints Row 2' Ultor Corporation
A ruthless corporate contender, the Ultor Corporation's gentrification of Saints Row created a new skyline for the city and a headquarters for their corporate office at the expense of the poor and the 3rd Street Saints. Now they're targeting another neighborhood, the Shivington projects, fueling gang wars and waiting for the prime moment to move in and reap the profits.
Key Game Features:

  • Freedom to Explore Through Open World Gameplay - Balancing story progression with all the time-wasting mayhem imaginable, Saints Row 2 contains more activities, diversions, races, cribs, city districts, and interiors than ever before.
  • Extensive Mission Play - Over 40 story missions with additional bonus missions take place in a transformed Stilwater that is over 50% larger than before.
  • Limitless Customization - Saints Row 2 allows you to customize everything connected to what you wear, drive and where you live as well as gives you access to countless character combinations from facial expression, body type, voice, taunts, gender to walking style. In addition, players can customize gangs various and extreme physical looks (some pretty crazy), fighting styles, gang taunts and tags and vehicle preferences.
  • Improved Combat Functionality - In addition to the usual run, jump, punch, drive, stab, shoot model of combat, Saints Row 2 allows you to take human shields and exact finishing moves if you choose, but beware. How you commit crimes affects your notoriety, which determines the response of police.
  • Expanded Multiplayer options - Along with a compelling singleplayer mode, enjoy a variety of multiplayer play options including:
    • Strong Arm: A team-based multiplayer mode batching together prominent activities from the singleplayer campaign into one series of timed events, with the goal to earn the most cash as a team at the end of the events.
    • Gangsta Brawl: A standard deathmatch mode with the single player with the most kills winning.
    • Team Gangsta Brawl: A standard team deathmatch mode with the team with the most kills winning.
    • Co-Op Mode: Full drop in/drop out coop support and ability to play through the full single player campaign with buddies and with the ability to set online co-op games to public, friends-only or invite-only status.
  • Lots of Wieldable Weapons - Whether you talking chairs, parking meters, street signs, newspaper dispensers or your neighbor's garden gnome, use whatever is on hand to take out an enemy.
  • An Explosive Weapon Arsenal - When a melee weapon just won't do, send a message to your enemies by dipping into an arsenal that includes: rocket launchers, shock-paddles, stun-guns, satchel-charges, mini-guns, uzis, automatic shotguns and flame-throwers; Some of which can be duel wielded.
  • A Vehicle for Every Surface - Put the pedal to the metal in a large selection of cars, motorcycles, ATVs, planes, watercraft and helicopters.
  • All New Music - Saints Row 2 will feature an entirely new soundtrack of songs and the ability to create a custom in-game radio station, accessible from any vehicle by building a playlist of songs purchased in-game, with in-game money.
The Silwater sprawled before you as you wake in Saints Row 2 is both familiar and strange, but you will find that the explosive conclusion to the original Saints Row not only has left you wounded and betrayed, but also thirsty for revenge. Now it's time to take back the city that has forgotten you and only you will decide how far you'll go to achieve that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great for the right computer June 7, 2011
By stcrowe
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
Okay, first let me say that Saints Row 2 (SR2) is an awesome game... just read the Xbox 360 reviews if you do not believe me. Now let me tell you that the PC version is a suckage port by suckage company, and therefore the game will run laggy on almost every PC that does match the 3.2 GHz of the xbox 360.

Fortunately, if you have a BA computer and install Gentlemen of the Row mod (google it) then the game should run pretty smooth. I was the lucky few who happen to have 3.2 GHz computer (AMD Phenom II X4 BE), and the game runs smooth as butter.

So before you buy make sure you have a beefy processor and install the Gentlemen of the Row mod. These two things should let you play the game, or you could just wait till SR3 comes out, which is not a crappy port by a crappy company.

Just FYI my specs:
3.2 GHz AMD Phenom II X4 BE
4gb Ram
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250

5.0 out of 5 stars wanted more saints after 3 December 24, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Yeah, I heard from many this game was ok. So I figured Id rather download and play it than bother with more costly DLC for SR3. It has a lot less over the top style to it, like no music in stores or post-mission and no oddball weapons.. The style is just entirely different, more serious. But for being an older game it looks about on par with three in some respects. Character building is more complex as well as other options are too. I think the game is good for people who suffer saints row deficiency after 3. Its only real flaws are its graphical limitations, such as things vanishing much earlier than on three and with multiplayer the game crashs quite a bit. Those things are the few that bother me.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a good game once you overcome the bugs May 28, 2010
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I won't say much on gameplay because that topic is pretty well covered. It is a lot like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas except that all vehicles and your character are heavily customizable. You can do pretty much whatever you want in the game just like the Grand Theft Auto series. The game is a lot of fun once you get it working right.

There's two major problems with this game that aren't obvious:
1) You need a tri-core or better processor. On a dual core processor or less, it is nearly impossible to drive at full speed due to lag.
2) This game has timing issues on Windows 7. You can use Saints Row 2 Power tools to fix this: [...]

Note that even the boxed retail copy of this game requires Steam to run. Don't be surprised when Steam asks you for your serial number instead of the usual installer.

It has at least 35 hours of single player game time if you do everything. It offers cooperative and other multiplayer modes for online (GameSpy ID) and LAN networking.

Once you get it working right, I would rate this game 8/10. It gets docked one point for requiring Steam and one point for having low bit-rate music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Game and Love that is on STEAM! April 4, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fair warning to people looking to get this game, make sure you have a good PC rig to run it smoothly! I had this game for awhile and my previous PC build was pretty good but it ran okay... since I upgraded my PC recently now it runs and plays great! I'm a big fan of GTA like games and this game is a little more open and wacky.

I understand some people have some displeasure with it being on steam, but I have had steam for a LONG TIME! Since then I went through 3 PC builds and I had to reformat my PC at least half a dozen times due to upgrades and virus infections - and each time through steam I would download and re-install my games with no issues. I like it because I already lost some hard copies (DVD) of my games, but I know I can download and install them again through steam...

UPDATE 4-09-2012: I just finished the game... I personally thought the storyline was great! The controls and driving and flying were good after you get used to it - I only use keyboard and mouse at default settings...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and humor January 2, 2013

I purchased this game after I finished Saints Row The Third, and I must say that this game is every bit as good, except it has a longer campaign. With the quality of Saints Row 2 and 3, this series has surpassed the GTA series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game works fine no mods or settings changes. February 4, 2012
By chris
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
After seeing all the bad reviews about not working well I noticed all the bad reviews was mostly older comments. The good comments was from people with newer computers. Since I just upgraded my pc after christmas I figured it would be ok. I read it has to be activated through steam so I went there and checked the forums seems it works best with a multicore 3.2 mhz cpu. this is same as the xbox 360 cpu. the closer the better they say. So I gave it 5 stars because I had no problems so far in the first hour or so, if I run into any problems I will adjust the rating. I used the fraps program to find fps. was about 70 running around on foot and dropped to high 40's low 50's when driving fast. I had no problems with install, updated the game didn't install any mods or change any graphic changes yet, I wanted to play it without any changes to see how it worked and I will mess with the mods and settings later. I am running an i7 2600k sandybridge @ 3.4 mhz, evga gtx560, and 8 gigs ddr3 1600

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly entertaining co-op fun! September 13, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I know, my title sounds like a tagline or sound bite for the game. But it's not, that's just how I feel about the game.

I originally played the game on a 6000+ AMD 64x2 Dual Core machine, and it was barely passable. No amount of dialing down the graphics or closing processes in memory would give me much in the way of's really that horrible of a console port. But it was still fun for me.

HOWEVER. I upgraded to a heftier machine, a quad core 3.2GHz AMD Phenom II x4 955 processor, and that made a heck of a lot of difference. Now, I can even try out the racing games (driving was hard!). In my experience, the reason the controls seem wonky or nonresponsive if you don't have a top of the line system is because it just doesn't register for a second...just enough for you to overcompensate. With a fast system and decent video card, most of these troubles clear up. The game seems to care more about processor power than video card power.

So, I got a copy for my wife and we had a blast playing on LAN...I suspect she likes it better than most MMOs we've played (she only has a dual core machine, but she has no problems leaving the driving to me while she rides shotgun).

I can completely understand why, because my own favorite part of the game hasn't been replicated in any MMO I've played: the AI of the NPCs (pedestrians, cops, gangers). If gangers clip a cop car while making a turn, for example, you'll see the cops turn on their lights and all of a sudden, there's a car chase and gunfight raging down the street. Sometimes you'll be standing at an intersection and a car comes off the highway ramp too fast... quickly causing a pileup. I love that kind of world where things can happen without you being's so much more immersive.
