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.

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

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

not everyone likes platform games designed for young children.

also, gta4 proved that 10/10 scores mean nothing

silvacrest3682d 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

pavarotti3682d 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.

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

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

cellfluid3682d ago

I had this game about 4 day ago and its great I even put videos online..
