Saints Row 2 (PS3)
Advantages: just fast paced gory fun, great missions, stupidity
Disadvantages: graphics, not amazing technically
Saints row 2 if you dont know is an RPG that is most similar to grand theft auto. Liberty city is replaced by steelport and Niko bellic is replaced by a customised character of your choice. The game begins from the end of saints row when you go to jail and slip into a coma. Saints row 2 sees you waking up in jail where you choose your character and begin the first mission. Jailbreak.
First of all the character creation is one of the best in a game i have seen. You can change anything. Fat, thin, bearded, cockney, monkey suit. Its the first indication that Saints row 2 is saying to you do whatever the f**k you want.
The first mission sees you grabbing a shotgun, killing about 50 prison gaurds then jumping in a boat with a 50 cal from and shooting down police choppers on the way from the alcatraz like prison island. The first impressions i got were well it doesn't look amazing, compared to gta 4 it is far below the bar but then that doesnt matter because you rarely have time to stop and take in the view. you will be too busy killing hookers or pimp slapping pedestrians. In any case i think games have lost the plot a bit recently. If i wanted to play an ultra realistic version of life i would turn off my playstation, i play games to emmerce myself in a fantasy world where anything is possible.
The missions like any RPG with the main story missions and many more side missions. The difference here is that you need to fill up your respect bar before you can continue playing main story missions. That might seem like an annoying system but personally i don't mind when the side missions see you hurting yourself for money, driving a rubbish truck and spraying s**t all over the city and taking an attack helicopter to escort a drug dealer. I did not get bored at any point in the game and got about 30 hours of gameplay out of the game.
The story is nothing special and neither are the characters arn't much better but none of that to me matter. If you want to play a game in which you have to think tacticlly and looks amazing don't go for this. But this game involves no thinking, just plain fun.
Summary: its not a techniclly amazing game but is just fun and thats all i needs to be
