"This opening sentence is supposed to be about how Saints Row 2 and every other open world style game is a clone of GTA IV. I am not going to touch on that at all in this review for a couple of reasons. First, you have heard it all before, so what's the point? Second, I have never actually finished GTA IV so I don't have the ability to compare and contrast the two games. Saints Row 2 is new to me and for that reason I get to take it for what it is, I consider this an advantage.
Saints Row 2's storyline picks up where the first one left off. Your character has been blown up and in a coma for the last couple of years. The game begins with your character getting busted out of the hospital while teaching the basic controls and back-story. When your character gets out, he realizes his gang has been shattered and it will have to be rebuilt to take back the city of Stilwater."
