A worthy successor to Saints Row, the first open-world title on next-generation consoles, 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:
|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.
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.
|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."
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.
|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.

- 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.

- 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.

I've had a lot of fun with this and that's without doing very many of the over-arching plot missions. I love the hit-man assignments (though I'll admit I've had to look up online how the heck to get some of them to spawn the target) and also the chop-shop car stealing runs, though I suck at identifying some of the makes that are similar to each other so that makes it more of a challenge. Stealing one of everything on the map is helping with that; got most of the vehicle types in the game stashed in the garage of endless space now (edit: rats, finally ran out of room at around 60).
Character customization is great and so is are the options when you go to buy clothes for them. You're not just buying clothes in a pre-set color or pattern, but you can usually customize the heck out of them to the point where the same clothing item can look like anything from a black open long-sleeved sweater with white buttons (formal chic, anyone?) to a gangsta basketball jacket-shirt. And yes... with the initial character customization settings you can very definitely make a she-male (yay for the M rating lol) and then crossdress the heck out of things if that's your thing. It's mine, so rock on.
I would have liked more options in the voice choices, which for a guy are ghetto/gangsta dude, pseudo-British goon, and mister bad Spanish accent. So my obviously Asian guy sounds like Antonio Banderas... the least not-like-my-character choice there was. I'm actually finding it pretty humorous, but yeah, could have used a few more options there... though you can also choose from the three girl voices too. XD
So yeah, everybody plays a game differently, and a sandbox game is the most true to that concept. That's how I've played it so far, and I look forward to doing more of the actual plot missions so that I can finally take over more neighborhoods. Priorities, y'know.
That being said, it's still a lot of fun, and you can't beat the price! (It was $11 when I purchased)
O.k., now on to the stuff I like about the game. First off I love the soundtrack, actually I think I like it better than the GTA soundtrack. Car customazation is cool, love most of the activities. I was able to make it to the Brotherhood mission where you have to raid a cargo ship before I had to start using cheats. That mission is just crazy you have like three waves of enemys coming at you. I like how you can have 3 homies help you on the missions and also if you are being pursued by an enemy and one of your crew happens to be walking down the sidewalk, they will attack your enemy. Overall, if you can get used to the arcade physics this is a fun game just not quite as good as GTA.
