About Saints Row 2

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.

Summary

Saints Row 2 isn’t Grand Theft Auto, but that's a good thing. With strong replayability and wacky mini-games, the game will remain relevant for months down the road.

We like

  • Brilliant online co-op
  • Excellent character customization
  • Mini-games keep you coming back for more

We dislike

  • Disappointing friendly AI
  • Framerate hiccups and poor collision detection
  • Random freezing problems
