    Saints Row 2 for the PC has countless technical issues and bugs but it's still an incredibly fun game to play.

    Saints Row 2 for the PC has countless technical issues and bugs but fortunately they won't stop you from playing this cruel, detailed and incredibly fun game. You get to create a character but you can...

    A brilliant example of how to make a fun game.

    Rated on March 20, 2012 by Manji14

    When this game came out, my thought process for not getting it was something like: Gta IV looks way more mature and gritty, and saints row 2 looks like it's lacking a brain. Well...I was totally ri...

    I have a lot of problems with the GTA series, the lack of creativity, the fairly boring storylines. The way they seemed to go backwards in terms of location variation in the recent GTA4. It is still...

    Grand Theft Auto with humor. It's Great!

    Rated on June 22, 2012 by dahaoleboy69

    Saints Row 2 is well... It's its own game. Graphics: 8/10 Considering my computer had to play it on low settings with no textures and no shadows, the game gave itself sort of a retro feel. Wi...

    A great console game makes its mediocre approach to PC with a lousy port, and is far from good.

    Rated on November 23, 2009 by Underworldy69

    Do not get me wrong, I like Saints Row 2. Well, Saints Row 2 on the console, that is. There is plenty of technical glitches, freezing, slow and buggy frame rates, blue-screens, and brain-dead graphics...

    Yes the port is rubbish and glitches annoying, but if you are willing to look past that then it's great fun.

    I got into the SR series via SR3 and after having thoroughly enjoyed that game I wanted to go back and learn more about the characters/story that lead up to it. So my review is heavily based on SR3 vs...

    Saints Row 2 for the PC: A broken down wreck.

    Rated on February 03, 2010 by alexgior

    In my opinion this game is great and broken at the same time. I say that because it has a lot of variety: lots of weapons(including the stuff you can grab and throw), customizable character, the abili...

    At its heart Saints Row 2 is a good game, hampered by several lousy porting and technical issues.

    Rated on April 24, 2010 by gbrading

    Let's be clear: Saints Row 2 is certainly in the running for what could be called a GTA-clone. It lets you loose in a large, free-roam city to wreak havoc as you see fit. You have innumerable vehicles...
