Random Gamer's Review of Saint's Row 2

Jimmy the Greek writes, "I played and loved the first Saint's Row. It wasn't perfect but it still represented the first real sandbox/open-world game to hit the current generation of consoles. Think of it as first time you had sex. It was fun, but in hindsight you realize it could have been much much better. Saint's Row was fairly limited in terms of vehicles and map size, at least when compared to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. You had cars and cars alone, and the map spanned one city: Stilwater.

Saint's Row 2 adds to the core game play mechanics with several welcome improvements. You're no longer limited to cars. There are airplanes, boats, jet skis, motorcycles, mopeds, helicopters, and four wheelers. The old activities are back with several additions. The driving has been tightened, the map is about the same size but has more depth(literally) and height, and character customization extends to voice, presence, and sex. It's a definite improvement/progression, but with this improvement comes minimal sacrifice..."

Yeah.. IDK about this one.. I've yet to really get into a Saints Row game..

Well there has only been one other game. Maybe you should give it another chance.

i like saints row because it has more of an arcade like feel to it than gta

CrAppleton3552d ago

More Arcade like? Can you be more specific?

ammonator3552d ago

More of an arcade feel than Crackdown?

CrAppleton3552d ago

Yeah.. Crackdown would be the Arcade feeling for sure!

Seeing how the original came out on PS3, are there any differences between Saints Row 2 on PS3 and Xbox 360?

buckethead_9113552d ago

The first one never came out for the PS3. The lead platform for Saints Row 2 is the 360.

bgrundman3552d ago

that is what I meant, but I didn't realize it in time to fix typo... sorry about that :-S
