"More fun than a day at Rainbows End!"
4 stars"

So, who else was dissapointed with the lack of diversity in GTAIV? Who missed all those side missions that were so much fun! Well don't worry because Saints Row 2 is here!

Now, I never played the original so I can't compare it to Saints Row 1, BUT I can compare it to everyother GTA. And… I would say this is GTA: San Andreas on steroids. A quick run down is in order:

  1. Graphics are not as polished as GTAIV but still good enough to be classed as a new game. Far better than the old GTA's, and from the looks of it, better than the original SR.
  2. Gameplay is way fun! Its stupid, but fun. So many excellent side missions and great story missions. The London accent I gave my character cracks me up.
  3. Car handling is a bit of a joke. You get used to it, but I wish they had given the cars more weight and momentum. Also the helicopters are not as easy to fly as GTAIV which was surprising.
  4. Cool radio stations. Gen X radio rocks!

You won't be dissapointed by this game. It'll give you some good laughs.

Now… who wants to system link and do the whole story in co-op?

"Simply delicious."
5 stars"

Simply put, Saints Row 2 is very… simple, and don't think that's a bad thing. I don't think I've ever had this much fun with a sandbox game on my 360. I mean, sure, GTAIV was amazing, perhaps one of the best games I have ever played, but it did lack that ‘fun factor’. Assassins Creed was great fun, but I really did get sick of stabbing a few people and skipping across roofs. Saints Row 2 will cure you're craving for violent, gun blazing, slapstick humour sandbox gaming.

I mean, once you start up Saints Row 2 and finish the tutorial, you're free to do whatever you like, look however you want and kill whoever you want. There's nothing more satisfying that hijacking a ‘Septic Avenger’ and spraying every grandma, prostitute and half-naked rollerballer down with an unlimited supply of high pressured excression.

Dont ‘think’ about buying Saints Row 2… Just BUY Saints Row 2.

"GTA Disappointed you? Try this!"
5 stars"

Having just spent the last 7 days playing this game i can safely say that i wasnt disappointed. The gameplay for this game is nothing short of excellent with many different options available for customisation which seems to be a big part of this wether its your crib, cars or your person it offers something thats been done before but hasnt been done well. its all the small things that makes it an excellent game to play but after not wanting to put this down, and spending 3 hours a day playing it, its one for the collection (prob not the best if you havea partner)
