SR2

I've been looking for a new game to play, and the Saints row 3 trailer has got me excited. Problem is, the game isn't out for a few months.

 

I thought I should maybe purchase Saints row 2 to pass the time until the next one comes out. I'm a big fan of the GTA series, in particular San Andreas, but people say this game and GTA shouldn't be compared. The thing about San Andreas I most enjoyed however was the wackiness- things such as cheats which allowed cars to fly, driving motorcycles off cliffs and the side missions like pimping. SR2 seems to be a similar type of concept.

 

So I have a few questions about SR2

 

1. Does the multiplayer work? I have heard there are problems with the co-op or something along those lines.

2. Is there splitscreen multiplayer?

3. Does it have a long, well written story?

4. Is there much to do once the game is complete?

5. Overall, would you recommend it?

 

Thanks!

Saints Row 2 is a great game, i played it completely in co-op and never had a single problem. I honestly canne remember much of the story but theres alot to do in the game and its well worth picking up.

1. For the most part. I've had problems with it recognising missions have been completed in co-op (which only really effects the achievemnt, not a big deal) and occaisionly getting a little de-synched but that's infrequent and easily sorted.

2. No (fairly certain)

3. Long enough. It's not well written as such, it's the usual gang rubbish that you get in this kind of game, that said the characters are interesting enough.

4.There's a lot of side activities and collectables and stuff if you're into that kinda thing.

5. Yes, really good game.

Saints row 2 is a great game, its mile better than gta

There is just 1 thing that SR2 didnt have that GTA 4 didnt. That is the 16 player online. Just 2 people is fun yeah but it would have been better to invite more friends to 1 game.

Saints Row 2 is far far better than GTA. There are some 'wacky' cheats for SR2, but make sure you dont save when you enter them cause they disable achievements :)

Well I ordered it off Amazon, so hopefully I'll enjoy it based on what you've all said!

Thanks!
