What Gamespot Users have to say about Saints Row 2

  • Review Score:4.5

    A truly spectacular game marred by a terrible port.

    I'll admit that getting into this game I wasn't expecting much at first. My initial thought was that this will be nothing more than a poorly defined GTA clone. To my surprise however, all my expectations turned out to be... Read Full Review

    I loved this game from start to finish.

    I've had it for about a year now and play it over and over. So many things you can learn and do different each time you play. Awesome game can't delete it off my P.C. I've played lots of other games but this one never se... Read Full Review

    Amazing game, but horrible port.

    I have heard such great things about the Saint's row2. I didn't really like the first one that much so I thought it was a mediocre GTA ripoff. Yet when I finally got this game for the PC I was blown away over how origina... Read Full Review

    A great game ruined by being poorly ported to the PC.

    Saints Row 2 itself, is a very fun game. People claim it is just a bad Grand Theft Auto clone, which is only semi-true. The game is a free-world crime game, but it supports craziness and outlandish actions instead of t... Read Full Review

    In my books a good game is fun to play.

    In Saints Row 2 the biggest disappointment is the quirky car handling and in a game where you drive around a lot that's a big minus. But that's about it. Of course the graphics aren't top notch but I don't mind. The shee... Read Full Review

    A solid game ruined by a crappy port.

    Saints Row 2, not much to say about the game. It speaks for itself with it's total outrageous gameplay. For those who didn't like Rockstar's venture toward realism, THIS was the true sequel to San Andreas. But somethi... Read Full Review

    A brilliant game, an annoying port.

    Saints Row 2 is, simply put, an outrageously brilliant game. It's the best use of an open world I've ever experienced, that lets you do what you feel like doing. It's developed by Volition, who made Descent and Red Fa... Read Full Review

    Could have been so much better... Please read before judging my article...

    Being a Saints Row 1 fan I was extremely excited for the second part of the game, but this year when they announced a part 2 for PC as well I decided to skip the consoles version and get the superior PC version. Huge mis... Read Full Review
