About This Game

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.
  • Limitless Customization - Play as fully customizable characters that are male, female or something in between.
    - Vehicles can be visually customized as well as performance tuned.
    - Cribs and even gangs all have an amazing degree of detailed customization options.
  • Multiplayer - Co-op full story campaign has seamless integration (for example one player drives while the other shoots).
    - Competitive MP pushes the boundaries of immersion in a living Stillwater environment fully populated with police, innocent bystanders and rival gangs.
  • Killer Combat and Awesome Vehicles - Planes, helicopters, motorcycles,boats and cars can be piloted and used as weapons. On the ground new combat options include melee, fine aim, and human shield.
  • Freedom to Explore - More missions, activities, diversions, races, weapons, vehicles, cribs, city districts, and interiors than ever before. Over 40 story missions with additional bonus missions take place in a transformed Stilwater that is over 50% larger than before.

If you're thinking about getting into the Saints Row series, Saints Row 2 is the best one to start with. If you've already played the later Saints Row games, it's still worth it to go back and play Saints Row 2 (I actually played Saints Row IV before playing Saints Row 2).

You start out by creating your character. You can choose your Race, Sex, Body Build, etc. Soon after that, you'll be free to explore the big city. The main story is interesting, but you can also do your own thing and follow the main story at your own pace.

Join the Saints!

despite it's one of the worst pc ports ever, this game is way better than SR3.

This is the best game of 2008 and the best of Saints Row series. Maybe my favorite game.
Pros:
+ REALLY dramatic moments
+ Character customization - tattaos, clothes, body, accesories etc.
+ Epic cutscenes
+ You can choose every logo on your clothes
+ Great characters (Pierce, Carlos, Shaundi, Johnny, Aisha, Maero etc.)
+ Very good missions and minigames
+ Amazing actors' voices
+ Cars and houses tuning
+ Big city
+ Fantastic music and radio stations
Cons:
- Optimization
- Bugs
- Volition killed nice characters and this is bad
My rate for Saints Row 2 is 9/10

Saints Row 2 is based on Obama's early years before political career. You start game in prison and then try to escape to rebuild gang.

Gameplay is like Saints Row 1 but designer maybe played GTA Vice City for few hours too.
