Saints Row 2 gathered a lot of steam before released but when it finally arrived it was met with praise but not the overwhelming glory that many were hoping for. It is a gamer that seems to really divide players with some claiming that it's total crap but others saying that it is brilliant and everything that GTA IV should have been.
Either way, it went platinum fairly quickly and as such is now available from DVD.co.uk for the pleasingly low price of just £9.91. The next best price is £13.49 from PowerPlayDirect.
While comparisons to Grand Theft Auto IV are inevitable, there are enough differences to make Saints Row 2 more than just a pale imitator. It's similar but a whole lots sillier, meaning that if you just want to have some fun doing ridiculous things then you could do a lot worse than pick up this title.
The original Saints Row ended with the protoganist being lost to a coma in following a massive explosion. It's five years later and your character finally wakes up with a brand new face thanks to the marvels of plastic surgery. You are being kept in a jail hospital from which it is worryingly easy to escape and get back to the mayhem that you live to create.
It may not have the same high production values and brilliant little details that made Grand Theft Auto IV stand out so prominently but if you are after high octane craziness and carnage then Saints Row 2 is superb value for its current bargain basement price tag.
