Saints Row 2 (abbreviated to SR2) is a sandbox-style action-adventure video game developed by Volition, Inc. and published by THQ. It is the second title in the Saints Row series. The game follows the unnamed protagonist — referred to as male in this article — who leads a fictional street gang known as the 3rd Street Saints, to whom he followed in Saints Row until he was betrayed and landed in a trauma-induced coma after a staged yacht explosion. After escaping from prison five years later and bringing the Saints to power again, the protagonist takes on the gangs who now control the city Stilwater on a quest to bring it to the Saints' power, who had controlled it in Saints Row. The game is composed of elements from third-person shooters and driving games in open world gameplay. The main game can be played through in single-player or through online co-operative play. The game also contains competitive multiplayer modes.

Volition rock if this blog post on idolninja is anything to go by. Apparently according to a chain of emails between "idol" and crew from Volition LA (Jeff Thompson, the Studio Director of Programming, Alex Mejia and Steve Jaros), mod support will be coming to Saint's Row 2 and 3 as a "test run" in the lead up to Saint's Row IV release. To quote idol:

So, what does this actually mean to the average Saints Row player? In simple terms, the modding community will finally be able to create and offer new clothing, new vehicles, new guns, new npcs, new missions, and even new world geometry which will greatly extend the life of the series and enhance the Saints Row games in ways we never even dared to dream of.



Huge thanks go out to the gaming community who pushed this (and idol the primary architect), no doubt this is a decision that Volition will be reaping the rewards from once the work is done and the tools are out. For discussion check out the modding wishlist thread. Very exciting stuff, with PC gaming stronger than ever it's great to see developers returning to their roots and bringing modding back!

Hands down the best SR game, if only the PC version worked properly.

Release the patch already Volition, if you're still around after the disaster that was the SR reboot.

I wish this game would be remade with all its features, mini games, activities and missions with some additions on a modern engine with a better PC version that will be perfect!

And yet APB Died not even 3 months into it's life.

and the current APB is a joke, nothing but bad servers and people throwing their parent's credit cards at the game to buy themselves an advantage.

Well not permanently, a different company picked it up. But yeah, APB sucked sandy balls compared to Saints Row or GTA for that matter.

APB Reloaded is a joke, like I said in my other comment, they came in riding a white horse telling everyone they'd make it free, and improve the game. Instead they made it free, but you could pay for stuff too. Also free players got useless garbage compared to people who paid.

They broke the game even worse too.

I love the game's concept, I just wish that APB reloaded was more stable and was a one off payment game, where everything was unlockable in the normal manner.
