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.

- 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.

This is mainly in regards to the issue of changing your POV and then looking back to the same area and seeing cars missing etc that had just been there moments before. It seems like they just designed the game to have this (or more likely just didn't add in the details like following the different vehicles progress until it left the area that you could see "without you moving").
I do not get any cases of the game freezing at all, nor any other glitches of any type (other than those few things that you barely notice and don't really affect much in the game). But any game is most likely going to have some small "bugs"...
My issue was not with the game itself but the Special Collectors Edition items. Or more specifically, ONE item, the 512 MB USB thumb drive.
The one I got shows up as blank on EVERYTHING I try to connect it to, no matter what device or OS used. It also shows it as being only 8 MB in capacity, not the full 512. When attempting to access it, it might say that it is blank or just needs to be formatted before use, but I get errors when trying to even format the thing. It is an "unknown filetype" as well.
I actually contacted the company (THQ) for support in trying to replace the device (just the USB thumb drive as everything else was fine) and was told that they could not do this, that they did not have any in stock and that I would have to contact the retail location that I purchased the Special Collectors Edition from to get a replacement product.
Kind of a hassle, but I emailed Amazon today and asked about this (even though I have already opened and even "used" the poster included etc). I asked if I could get a new product and just take the USB drive and send the rest of the new package back to them with the old defective USB drive, and they gave me a new order (currently processing) and told me to return the old one.
I guess this means that I am allowed to do this, though I do find it kind of stupid that I have to go through all of this just to replace the defective USB thumb drive. Also, that the *whole* product that I return (whether it is mostly new or even my old order items) will end up getting labeled as "defective product" once returned just because of the USB drive...
Very silly, but I want that USB drive, grrr. I just wish it was 1 GB in capacity like the UK version is (in their Special Collectors Edition set) instead of just 512 MB...
However, I'm pleased to say that the same was not true of Saint's Row 2. In fact, I played the game continuously until I had finally reached the end of the story. There's a lot of meat on this bone that is Saint's Row 2. There are a number of customization options for you character, from gender and body type to hair and clothing options, even fighting style and taunts. I played through the game as an African American female, but a quick visit to the plastic surgeon will allow you to remake yourself any way you see fit.
People already know that Saint's Row shares striking similarities to the Grand Theft Auto series, and this game is no different. I found that, specifically, Saint's Row 2 very closely resembles Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. There are the clothing options, you can eat to regenerate health, buy property, customize your car or crib, you can even parachute from a plane. There are also a huge number of side missions that you can take on, ranging from taxi missions and races to fight clubs and escort missions. One of my favorites, Fuzz, has your character in the role of a police officer, taking down criminals, all the while being followed by a TV cameraman.
On the negative side, there are some technical issues that arise, such as slowdown during some of the boat chases, but I didn't feel they detracted from the overall experience of the game. In addition to the incredibly deep single player mode, there are also online co-op and multiplayer modes that only help to further enhance the replayability. If you liked the first Saints Row or any of the Grand Theft Auto series, especially San Andreas, grab your piece, and head on down to Saints Row for a 2nd visit.
As for the game, this is what GTA should be. No dating, no stupid games within games, just brutal, open-world fun. If you have played SR1, then you know what to expect. A good selection of weapons, a decent story, fun side missions, and a unique cast of characters (to say the least). My biggest gripe with the first SR was the lack of vehicles besides cars, that is taken care of here, in spades. The best part about the SR games is the ability to customize your cars, no two dinky parking spots in this game, you have a magic garage! Also, for once the choppers are easy to fly, I don't want that much realism in a game where I can bash old ladies' heads in.
This is not a perfect game of course. I would have liked more options in the customization ability (but at least it was there at all). The graphics are nothing special either, but given the detail in the other quests, I can live with that. Finally, please, please stop putting stupid things to find or spray paint, just for a few unlocks and an achievement.
The pros of this game far outweigh the cons, so get it already!
