Sure, its trying-way-too-hard urban-themed take on the open-world genre may have been a bit ridiculous, but its solid gameplay mechanics (notably, the shooting system) and spiffy graphics (given that it was the first game of its type on XB360) made it easy to like. Saints Row 2, though, faces a slightly tougher task: following the behemoth known as Grand Theft Auto 4. Will people still care about this fledgling series? We've covered Saints Row 2 plenty already, but we've only recently gotten our hands on perhaps its biggest weapon in the open-world war zone: online co-op play.
