In the early days of the Xbox 360, gamers cried out for a full-fledged Grand Theft Auto-style project. They wanted a game that thrust them into an open-ended city and let them commit whatever sort of atrocities their twisted hearts desired. Saints Row was among the first to answer that call, and it enjoyed a huge amount of success because of it.
Even though GTA IV has come and gone, gamers still hunger fore more games of its type. Once again, the Saints Row franchise is speeding to the rescue and gunning down the competition in the process. Saints Row 2 is due out next week for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. In honor of this release, IGN has assembled a Cast of Characters feature.
