Game Vortex writes: "Saints Row 2 picks up five years after the original game's explosive finale. In that time, Stilwater has undergone a bit of a revival while you lay in a coma. Returning to Stilwater is a bit like returning to your hometown after a long absence. The city feels familiar, yet at the same time, it feels like a completely different city. Visually, Saints Row 2 is a step up over the original, though the changes aren't readily apparent. Everything you come across looks and feels the same, but even if you know the city better than your own house, there's still a lot of new things to see."
