I'm just thrilled at the variety of combat... one thing I love in a lot of games is grappling. It just adds a lot more to a game when you can decide "Know what, I'll just shove you down these stairs and fight your friends instead"

Its gotten to a point where ripping off GTA is a field of its own and not a criticism... I remember when SR1 came out they said "Its definitely one of the better GTA clones" it made me chuckle ^__^

There is also a zombie survival game in the game itself. Saints Row 2 is more then a "GTA clone" as it's obviously attempting to branch out and do things GTA didn't while still having that urban sandbox feel. Which is something I love... and especially customization options.

Couldn't agree more. It looks like three times the game SR1 was...

In a couple of actual releases, I can see the Saints Row franchise branch off like GTA did and actually become a competitor to the actual strong GTA line.

Is this a good thing? Yes. Why? I find myself enjoying Saints Row more, mainly for the customization, quirky humor (that seems to be lacking mainly [well, it's in there, but not as much as it was] in the latest GTA games) and other things. Sure it looks "cartoony" in comparison to GTA. But, it has many, many things GTA doesn't offer.

It also doesn't have that horribly bright spotlight GTA does, which is a blessing in itself... SR can get away with a lot that just won't fly with a GTA game these days (airplanes, chainsaws and alcohol induced super strength come to mind)

Well, it's suppose to be different and over the top.

As for other things, you can pick up to six different voices for your characters. Three male, Three female.

Each with minor adjustments to the script.

Although it'd been better with eight. They merged white and Asian. Apparently seeing as the new Asian gang is Japanese.

You know, I don't normally like these types of games (As Sabby should know, I've ranted on GTA3 enough times on IRC :P) but this looks...  Amusing enough for me to pick it up.

Read the review and saw the video review on IGN. Definitely getting it.

Minigames involve streaking, driving an ATV quad in a fire proof suit while on fire and having to cause as much arson as possible, and parachuting so you can defaecate on key areas to destroy their property value.

It looks way too similar to the first... and the gameplay was so bland and boring. MAY pick it up for all the new content (weapons, fighting styles, customizing) but I doubt I'll get it soon. Maybe used.

I still play it, almost daily :) spoiled kids these days are far too hard to please.

Any way, I'm just going off of gameplay footage here, and it looks like Saints Row 1.5 instead of 2... but I'll rent before I commit to that statement :)

Saint's Row 2 really has a lot to live up to.  GTA IV pretty much redefined the sandbox game genre, and lots of people are going to expect SR2 to follow suit.  Frankly, I doubt it will live up to the hype.

That's the thing, SR2 isn't GTA, it isn't even trying to be GTA. GTA IV in my opinion didn't redefine sandbox games, San Andreas redefined that. If GTA IV was San Andreas wit the same amount of things to do, customization with the new graphics and so on, then it'd be redefined.

Thing is, what SR2 says it offers, it actually delivers on it. The fact it isn't a GTA clone anymore and now GTA's goofy cousin (purposely) makes it shine more in my heart then any GTA game.

Well GTA, for history's sake, was not the first sandbox game. Driver was the first game to do that. GTA just added a little more controversy and refined game play.
I never played Saints Row in depth but it seemed a little more geared to over the top action, while GTA sticks to more realistic (Relatively) than SR. Also I tend to prefer the tongue-in-cheek humor of GTA.

(Oh and ZK you got me totally interested in Fallout and now I am trying to download it.)

The only thing that mars SR2 is it's glitches, which hopefully will be patched.

The game is much more detailed then the first one, many diversions, activities and other things to do. Already clocked over 50 hours into it.

Then again, there are many dark scenes. The storyline is darker then the original Saints Row.

Afraid not, you're in for a gruesome treat then. If you think the Ronin is bad, see the Brotherhood or Sons of Samedi.
