Backstory
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.

Saints Row 2 is a great game overall. The fun factor is extremely high, but enjoying games of this genre shows how sadistic humans can be.

Of course I've read and heard the numerous Saints Row-GTA comparisons, and supporters on both sides have some valid points. From my personal experience however, I can say that GTA wins with the main missions and overall presentation, while Saints Row wins in everything else. Some say the voice acting in Saints Row 2 is cheesy but I disagree. The storyline is a bit underwhelming, but sandbox-style games can get by without that. Saints Row 2 still has its moments.

Where Saints Row 2 shines is in its character customization, the best I've seen in any game, and its side missions (or activities), of which there are many. By my estimate, side missions double the amount of time it takes to finish this game completely. Most of these are right on the map too, so you don't have to go hunting for them. As far as customization, I only spent about 15 minutes on that before diving into the game, but in that short period I was still able to construct a character that bears my resemblance. In fact, my girlfriend once said she doesn't like watching me play because seeing the virtual 'me' get shot or run over is a bit disturbing.

The game isn't perfect though (hence the 4-star rating). The graphics are not very impressive, which can be forgiven as the gameplay makes up for this shortcoming. However, the frame rate can get pretty low at times. I did not expect this to happen given the cheap graphics. The save game load times are longer than they should be in my opinion. Fortunately once the game is up and running there are no load delays.

One major issue is weapon changing, which for me was extremely problematic in the beginning.

At first I was skeptical about purchasing SAINTS ROW 2 but since I have it only 1 things is wrong. I can't turn back time to purchase it earlier this game is the best game in its class much better than any GRAND THEFT AUTO I played, after playing this I basicly forgot about my Grand Theft Auto 4 because this has better guns, better missions, better drive-bys (use any gun not just an automatic weapon), better ways of getting cash , better online gameplay, better storyline, better houses and cars you get the picture. No more are you someone being told what to do you're the BOSS reclaiming your spot back in your city. Everything is customizable from your car to your house to your clothes to even you, yes your character is customizable male, female whatever you want. And if you no longer like your character you just go to the plastic surgeon and change your character at any given moment. Claim new neighborhoods so you can take your comfy throne as KING or QUEEN of Stilwater. 2 THUMBS WAY UP

This game is just fun. Reminds me of old GTA when it was fun to just drive around and explore. The side missions are a lot of fun and the character customizations are diverse. The graphics seem a little dated, but it doesn't matter because it doesn't take away from the experience. If you like open world sandbox type games, this one is a must buy!

ok i already have this game and its awesome. so when i saw collector's edition and read the description about having 40 addition missions and extra customizing features,i was excited. but when i received it i was disappointed to learn that its the same exact game. nothing new or different about it. but it did come with a cool tin case, USB flash shaped like a bullet, money clip, and poster. so it wasnt that bad. i gave a higher rating because even though its the regular game and not a different edition, the set is pretty cool. i decided to keep the set because i gave my other copy to my godchild because the game is so awesome. plus i kinda like the tin case. so ultimately, if you already own Saints Row 2 then dont bother getting this deal unless you want just those extras because its only the regular game with the extras. if you dont own Saints Row 2 then i highly recommend gettig this deal.

Got the collector's edition on sale, if it's not on sale, just get the regular one. The money clip & the bullet USB flash really isn't worth the $10 or $20 extra they charge.

The game graphics - it's decent. More cartoony than GTA.
Controls - It's a bit loose, missing straf, and without the auto targeting, it is pretty difficult to target unless you are use to FPS games.
Gmaeplay - Saint's Row feel more arcade, wild jumps, car flips, explosions, it's fun 1st time around, but it gets dull after a while. You start to appreciate the little things you didn't think about in GTA4 and wish they put that in here as well.

Still, this is a fun game, with all the things to do, it feels even longer than GTA4. Keeps you busy till GTA5 comes out.

This game is a must have for any collector of sandbox GTA style kind of games. I have never played Saints Row before but have became a fan. The game does not freezes like GTA IV. The mission and themes are quite fun and silly. There is one activity mission where you get to spray human toxic waste all over the city. Another activity I like is called Fuzz, where you dress up like a cop for a cop show and cause chaos to citizens. There are so many different types of cars and vehicles to collect. I also like how you get to customize your character from race, sex, personality, voice, and walking styles. The customizing is more advanced than other games I have played like Godfather I & II, and the Sims3.
