IGN: Saints Row 2 UK Review

Ultimately it's difficult to see, really, what it adds to the original Saints Row, or indeed, the GTA-formula and the macho posturing and po-faced moral bankruptcy is likely to infuriate as many people as it enthrals. But Saints Row 2 demonstrates that there is still plenty of mileage to be eked out of open-world games, even the ones that aren't GTA IV. There's certainly enough here to keep any fans of sandbox violence entertained - just remember, don't try it at home, kids, you'll get sand in your eyes.

sackboy says hi5751d ago

how can they give gta4 a 10 and give this a 7.5....

gta4 had no fun factor like gta3,saints2 has all the fun factor gta4 did not have and they gave it a 7.5

sackboy is still bying this game.... (-_-)

I think this is probably a more accurate score than the 9s we've seen elsewhere.

Almost tempted to cancel my pre-order even if it is very cheap.

LOL at the reviewer taking a swipe at Xbox reliability too - whiney little runt :P

eric1005751d ago

cant beileve people are planing to release this mediocre game/Fable 2 vs LBP which has already gotten over 25 10/10 from various reviewers worldwide

frankly speaking no one gives a damn to any game when there is LBP

bumnut5751d ago (Edited 5751d ago )

not everyone likes platform games designed for young children.

also, gta4 proved that 10/10 scores mean nothing

silvacrest5751d ago

How is this review any more accurate then the 8s and 9s that have been given by other sites? even IGN's other devisions gave it a higher score and to top it off this is the only 7.5 score i've seen given to this game

pavarotti5751d ago

how can lbp go against fable?? ones a platformer with a level creator, and the other is an rpg????????? and what the f*^k does those two games have to do with saints row?

as usual, it's good to see that the wonderful admin on n4g are taking action against the sony fanboys who spam every single thread(especially the 360 ones), and stopping multi-account losers from dragging this site even lower than it already is! great work guys.

on topic, i'm picking up saints row. the first was pretty decent, and i'm quite looking forward to the second.

I imagine they're regreting all those videos they released bashing GTA4. But as it's retailing for £15 at Tesco's (UK) I might still be tempted. It seems to have some fun elements.

I_LOVE_MYSELF5751d ago

But the price is bumped up today to even higher than the 360 version... I think it was a mistake

Nelson M5751d ago

And for 15 quid who's complaining
It'll be a good game
I enjoyed the first one
But still not a GTA beater

cellfluid5751d ago

You know usually when someone says "you may have missed" it's games that were lesser known, hidden gems, underrated games. These are all super high profile games that sold extremely well.

FPS_D3TH567d ago (Edited 567d ago )

You know the 2000s is 20 years ago too? Maybe, just maybe this wasn’t an article targeted to 30+ gamers? Still says at the very beginning of the title “THE BEST GAMES you may have missed”. Regardless of how well they sold there’s tons of gamers who haven’t touched these older well known games lol.

Welshy567d ago (Edited 567d ago )

It's games you "may have missed", insinuating you were around and gaming in the 2000's and were there to miss them. If it was aimed at everyone else then they missed literally everything, not just the top games.

The original commenter is right, this is a badly written article at best pointless at worst.

Crows90567d ago

Besides only being able to miss it if you were around during that time..if your point stands then this is a horrible list. Tons of better games people may have missed

I would like the original max payne remade in a new engine with ray tracing. 😊

FPS_D3TH567d ago

Remedy games already working on that and I’m so stoked for it

XxINFERNUSxX567d ago

Oh yeah thanks for reminding me I totally forgot they were doing it. Also what the hell happened to Kingpin: Reloaded? On Steam coming soon and nohting from the dev.

MadLad567d ago

Yeah, I was just going to say. It's interesting seeing them back behind the series. Max Payne 3 was amazing, but then Rockstar just sat on the IP.
Well, they sit on virtually anything that isn't GTA and Red Dead now.

porkChop567d ago

What is this list? These are all hugely popular games. I was expecting games like Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, Advent Rising, Arx Fatalis, etc.

FPS_D3TH567d ago

the title didn’t say lesser known titles from the 2000s. This is 20 years ago now lol. Big assumption this list was made for older gamers.
