The good, the bad and the ugly! No, Im not talking about Clint Eastwoods classic western, Im talking about Saints Row 2. The good in Saints Row 2 can be found in the character creation, the customization and the diversity of the missions as well...

When THQ announced a PC version of their free-roaming action game Saints Row 2, no one seemed to be very excited. Gamers have clamored to see PC ports of many console games over the years, including ones that turned out to be horrible. And while SR2...

When the original Saints Row came out two years ago, it served to placate fans until Grand Theft Auto made its next-generation debut. Saints Rows deviant destruction didnt push the boundaries of what to expect from a free-roaming urban assault game,...

Technical problems mar this delightfully crass, immature, and over-the-top sandbox game....

No matter what anyone says, Saints Row 2 (SR2) is a typical “GTA clone”. There is no way around that fact and the sooner you accept it, the better. Having said that, it does manage to diversify itself from the rest of the clones, and...

In 2008, my favorite sandbox-style game wasnt Grand Theft Auto IV. It was Saints Row 2. And no matter how many weird looks my coworkers gave me, I was adamant about my stance on the matter. Saints Row 2s superior driving mechanics and shooting...

From the setting to the gameplay, Saints Row 2 borrows quite a bit from Grand Theft Auto - but it’s not “just another” clone. In fact, on the Xbox, the Saints Row series is probably the best-received of the many open-world carjacking...

MANY might dismiss Saints Row (SR2) as a copycat of Grand Theft Auto (GTA), the indomitable gang leader of the sandbox genre.Although SR2 indeed feels like a compilation of GTAs greatest hits, the former proves that it does have sufficient clout to...

A real challenge to... you know, that other sandbox game... Saints Row 2 expands on the original with a dizzying level of complexity. Stilwater is back and bigger than ever - theres so much to see and do youll be entertained for...

As far as murder simulators go, GTA is king. However, it's not the only game town. Volition and THQ are looking to further cash in on GTA's success with the latest addition to the Saints Row franchise, Saints Row 2. We went ahead and took the...

International Review By Gameswelt.de on 76

Nach der doch etwas holprigen Umsetzung von Grand Theft Auto 4 auf dem PC gingen wir mit leichter Vorsicht an den direkten Konkurrenten Saints Row 2. Auf der Konsole hatten wir schon einigen Spaß, doch wie wird es auf dem PC aussehen?...

International Review By Clubic on -

Plus varié et sans doute plus riche que son compère Grand Theft Auto IV, Saints Row 2 ne joue finalement pas tout à fait dans le même registre. Alors que le titre de Rockstar est plus sérieux, se focalise davantage sur le développement dune intrigue,...

International Review By GamingXP on 60

„Saint's Row 2“ kann in Sachen Optik mit Sicherheit nicht mit „GTA4“ mithalten. In Sachen Spielspaß und unterschiedlichsten Missionen schlägt es das Vorbild von Rockstar jedoch ganz sicher. Auch würde das Spiel...

International Review By GameCaptain on 76

Was Beschäftigungsmöglichkeiten, Waffen und Fahrzeugtypen angeht, erreicht Saint's Row 2 ähnliche Dimensionen wie einst das umfangreiche GTA: San Andreas. Dafür müssen allerdings ein paar qualitative Einbußen wie die...
