ZTGD writes: "Silly, Outrageous, Profane, Excessively Violent, Very Naughty, and Unapologetically so. "One can never be too rich as to throw away a homie." Thoughtful Dialogue. Charming Characters. Epic Storyline. Sweeping Soundtrack....Not in this game! Get your violence and profanity on with THQ's latest bullet packed thrill ride.
I usually review RPGs and other sorts of Japanese Fluff for ZTGD. I can imagine Ken's inner dialogue when I told him that I could provide a review of Saints Row 2 for his site. I played Grand Theft Auto IV for about two hours and did not enjoy it at all. Don't really know why, just wasn't my thing. I am, however, goofy about character creation (just ask my husband, I can spend two hours creating a character), and having had a bit of fun with the first Saints Row's creator, I was at least looking forward to Saints Row 2's robust character creation. I imagined I would create a character, fart around for an hour or so and be left wanting. Nine hours later, I am still having a great time with this profane, ridiculous, and hilariously energy drink fueled game."
+ Exceptional Character Creation
+ Tons of Missions, Activities and Diversions
+ Tons of Customization
+ Laugh out Loud funny (if you have a somewhat sick sense of humor)
- A few collision detection issues
- Colors appear washed out at times
