Fair

Customization Good, Gameplay Bad

This game spent too much time worrying about your characters appearance and less about the actual gameplay. I spent more time trying to hop around my controller during fight sequences for the right button than enjoying the game. The drivinmg sequences are horrible. For a current generation system, the physics were awful. Maybe a Playstation or N64 they were good, but not the 360 or PS3. Not everything was bad, the character customization was very detailed. Most of the time, when I play video games, I dont need my characters chin to be disfigured or his/her face to have a funny expression on it. Plain white/black/caucasion or Asian would have been just fine. I didn't try it, but it would have been interesting to have tried to create a Metrosexual acting character, that option is a plus.

Wow!!! I was so siked to get this after owning the first installment,it was all for nothing.Graphically it does not shine at all,it feels like I am playing the original on xbox all over again,not 360.Story line progresses extremely slow and is confusing at times.There is tons to do in the game which I did like just like the first release so you won't get bored really.The soundtrack is subpar and not as good as it should be especially for the fact that it constantly repeats itself,play your own music from your hard drive trust me.On to online play....horrible!! The camera moves too fast,there is so much clutter moving around.You can't tell the difference between enemies and pedestrians on foot or in cars and during the matches the streets are constantly flooded with cars and people,kinda like a huge evacuation in one location.I'm sorry to say it but playing this made me go right back to GTA4.

This game is really good let me just start off by that. In saints row 2 theres so many things to do like if you dont want to do missions thers activitys or different stuff like that. But if you even dont liek that you can just go around and destroy things and people. Whoever liked the 1st will defenitly like this one alot more.
