Take back the streets of Stilwater
Welcome back to Stilwater
One of the new faces on the Row.
Customization down to the taunt.
Extreme posse creation.
Take the battle to the air.
Weapons that go bang.
Throw down some skin.
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:
Key Game Features:
| ||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.
| ||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.
| ||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."
| ||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.
| ||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.
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.

- More fun than you would expect
I won't go into detail here, but this game is fun. It's got a lot more unrealistic slapstick humor in it than other games of this type. The story is pretty interesting, and sometimes surprising. I really liked it and would play it again. The only flaws are some glitches and graphical errors here and there, which only show up on occasion. Overall a 4/5 but could be a 5 if they fixed the bugs....more info
- Everything GTA IV wanted to be... and then some!
The headline pretty much says it all. I was extremely disappointed with GTA IV, so much so that my game has been untouched for months only a couple missions from the end. I just can't bring myself to pick it up and finish it. In the same sandbox-style of gameplay, Saints Row 2 is basically the GTA: San Andreas part 2 that the gaming world was wating for. I don't think it was done justice when it was released. Get it now!...more info
- Fantastic game really.
I'm not going to compare this game to GTA IV or anything because they really aren't the same game. I hate when people argue for one or the other without playing them both. Personally I have played them both and love them both and I don't see why I should hate one or the other.
Saints Row is an amazing game. It's a blast to play and it really goes tongue in cheek, petal to the metal all the time. I love insurance fraud and mayhem the most out of everything one can do in this game and those are just activities, not missions. I've played through quite a few of the missions and the cutscenes are sometimes incredibly funny especially if your character is walking around in a costume (hot dog suit, ninja suit or like two dozen+ others) or half-naked or just wearing everything mismatched. You can customize everything just like it tells you in the product description and on the box cover. (clothes, body, gang, etc.) I would not recommend the game for children though (because of the sheer amount of sexual and drug references) but if you're mature then it's a great game to play.
This game understands what it is it's supposed to be, pure fun. Do whatever you want, be whoever you want, drive whatever you want and do things you wouldn't ordinarily do or even think of doing. It isn't a game that focuses on realism (which is a popular trend right now) and I love it for that. Don't judge it before you play it! (there is a demo of the first saints row on xbox live...how I knew I had to get into the game)
NOTE: It does glitch. It doesn't seem to glitch to any particular thing though (which is actually a good thing) and it usually doesn't freeze, you just need to be a bit patient and the game will start working again. I've played it for probably a good 40+ hours now and it's glitched on me perhaps 2 times where it didn't start up again shortly. IT really isn't enough of a turnoff to the game by a LONG SHOT. It's usually actually really funny. (My character once lit on fire and I was driving around on fire without my health being affected for a few minutes screaming like a maniac and I was just laughing) Honestly an amazing game that is worth the $60 easily. IT ALMOST ALWAYS FIXES ITSELF WITHIN ABOUT 3 MINUTES, which actually spices up the gameplay at times because like I said before they aren't predicable glitches and I've NEVER had the same one twice. (which is actually the MOST frustrating thing about glitches because then you can never do anything) The game autosaves as well so you don't have to do anything over again (unless you want to) if something goes wrong.
Worth the money! (only a 4 out of 5 because of glitches)...more info
- Fun Game
Fun game, but very time consuming...pretty much the case for all games, but even more so for fun games....more info
- really fun, got it at good price
Got a really good deal for this game @35$ for the Collectors Edition. The game is really fun and over the top. It's like GTA but just more crazy. You get to do a ton of various activities and most of them are pretty fun. Its pretty long as well. I personally still have not completed it.
The game got to me in time, although the collector's edition stuff is really not worth any extra money. ...more info
- Get The Regular Edition
Great Game as I expected, but the worthless junk included with the collectors edition is just useless and a waste of 20 dollars. But it is the game that counts and almost everything has improved (especially multiplayer), awsome new weapons, fun time-consuming activities, etc. I definitely recommend the game itself for fans of the first Saints Row and the GTA series. But please do yourself a favor and save $20 on something that you can actually use. ...more info
- Tremendous game, but...
I'm not going to get into the discussion of whether this game is better or worse than GTA IV. Both games may be the same genre (that began with GTA), but that's the only thing they have in common. Saints Row 2 is an all-out celebration of sex and violence with it's tongue planted firmly in cheek. There are no apologies for it's mature content and I like that! If you're going to be an M rated game then go all out with it and don't hold back, and Volition held nothing back for Saints Row 2. It's a blast to play, you get knee deep into the action right away and the wild ride never stops. There isn't a dull moment to be found. If you're looking for sandbox crime action, this may arguably be the best one out there (for next-gen systems anyway). Customization is king in Saints Row 2. You can customize just about everything in the game. From your crib, to your clothes, to your rides... you can alter them all. Customization can get pretty crazy too. For example, if you're a guy you can walk around in your boxers and if you're a woman you can walk around in just a tiny t-shirt and panties, or go naked (with your naughty bits censored of course). This can make the cut scenes pretty hilarious to say the least!
The new features of Saints Row 2 are pretty cool. Co-op play has been added (via Xbox Live or system link) and now you can play as a female, not just a male. A female friend of mine said she was going to pick up this game simply because of this feature, so more games should utilize this. There's a lot to do in the game as well. I've been playing all day and I'm only 3% into the game (I've been doing more side missions and exploration), so the game is going to offer hours of gameplay. Also, you can double the play time by playing thru as a man and then a woman to experience the subtle changes made in the game between the sexes.
Unfortunately, not all is perfect with Saints Row 2. Like I said, I've been playing all day (over 8 hours) and my game has froze dead in it's tracks not once, not twice, not three times, but four times!!! It happened during the Mayhem mode when I had tons of cops on my tail. This is really unacceptable. I've also noticed several small, yet annoying glitches that hamper the fun factor of the game. For example, while having several cops on my tail I had to switch cars. Several cops were on foot close to me as I tried to jack a car. I pushed Y to get into the car, instead of getting in, my character froze and one of the cops near me got inside the car I wanted instead. It was a temporary freeze, and I quickly pulled the cop out of the car once I could move again, but I have a feeling glitches like this could just be the tip of the iceberg.
With that said, I still love the game. The fun factor out weighs the glitches and freezes, but I did remove 2 stars due to these problems. If it wasn't for that, Saints Row 2 would've easily been a perfect 5 star game, but things like this should really get fixed before they're released to the public.
The collectible tin, bullet usb drive and money clip are pretty cool, but the art book is a joke and a copy of the soundtrack (ala GTA IV collector's edition) would've been a perfect touch, especially since this is $79.99 and not $69.99. Unless you're a die-hard fan of the series, I would skip this Collector's Edition. I bought it because I simply enjoy owning collector's editions of... anything.
So, if you can remember to frequently save your game and you don't mind game freezes and a few glitches here and there, then I highly recommend you spend some quality time in the Row. It's a fun place to visit!...more info
- good but dizzy
I purchased this game to play with family and friends and although the game was fun, i suffered from bouts of dizziness during game play which makes it impossible to continue....more info
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Remix)
I didn't actually purchase Saint's Row 2 until several months after it had already been out. As a matter of fact, the only reason I bought it was because it was on sale, Collector's Edition, and I thought it was a great deal at the price being offered. I had read several reviews when the game initially released, which ranged from good to average. I had the first Saint's Row, but never finished the game, as it just lost my interest.
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. ...more info
- good/ok game single player, excellent game co-op
This game is fun single player, but is far from excellent, its easy to get bored doing the activities and such by yourself. But if you have a friend to play the full game through in co-op mode, this game is absolutely a blast. Don't expect GTA excellence from this game, expect a more slapstick and offensive experience that has quickly been coined the saints row experience. If you have a friend to play this with, get the game, you will not regret it....more info
- Best sandbox game around
Saint's Row 2 is by far the best sandbox crime game at this time. It's a colorful, vibrant world. The nameless people in the world have enough personallity to make you feel like you are in a living breathing world.
The cutscenes are short and fun for the most part, and the supporting characters are very well done. The story is very easy to follow and keeps you interested.
The missions tend to be the same thing, drive here, blow up this, kill this guy, pick up this stuff, take it back to the hideout, and avoid capture. They are all fairly straight foward, but a few of them will test your patience. The activities are very well thought out. There are just too many to name, but my favorite would have to be the Insurance Fraud. There is just so much to do in this game.
The music selection is great. There are hits from many different types of music. GTA 4 had a decent hip hop selection but lacked any recognizable rock.
Overall I was very happy with my purchace. It doesn't take long to finish the story, but there is so much to do you may never be truely done with this game....more info
