You used to be the Big Man. You used to be King of the Hill. You used to sit atop a great big stinking pile of dirty money, while everyone around you looked up in respect. You were the boss. But those days are gone. Now, you're waking up in a hospital bed after spending five years in a coma because your peeps betrayed you. It's gonna be a long road back to the top. Such is the start of Saints Row 2.
First up, you'll need to set about customising not just your character, but their crib and their crew, too. Image is everything on the streets, so you'll need to look the part.
Then you'll need to set about taking back a much-changed Stilwater, with blood, guts and guns. And, you know... private jets, speedboats, helicopters and fighter planes. The usual. You'll need them to get around, because Stilwater's a big old open world.
Because no man is an island, and you can't be a gang leader without a gang, you'll be able to have a buddy watch your back in co-op play right through the single-player campaign. Also, because you can't rule a city without killing a bunch of people, you'll be able to shoot it out in competitive online multiplayer for up to 12 guys.
Remember what happened in the original Saints Row, and watch your back...
