On first inspection, Saints Row 2 delivers the predictable. The open-world action-adventure game offers more of everything that the first game had. The landscape is about 50 percent larger than the original. It takes place about 15 to 20 years after the first game, stars your character as the Saints gang leader, and it's deeper and more customizable in every foreseeable way. The highlight feature focuses on two-player co-op, in which a second player can jump in and out of the campaign at any time to participate in the madness from beginning to end. The core combat layers in various degrees of new functionality starting with the use of human cover, the ability to throw the human cover (preferably through a building window), and the ability to drive or pilot a cluster of vehicles from helicopters to jet skis to powerboats.
