Saint Row 2 Character Creationl

Saints Row 2 is a 2008 action-adventure game developed by Volition and published by THQ. It is the sequel to 2006's Saints Row and the second installment in the Saints Row series. The game was released in October 2008 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, January 2009 for Microsoft Windows, and April 2016 for Linux. A mobile tie-in game was developed by G5 Entertainment and also released in October 2008. Saints Row 2 directly follows from the events of the first game, as the player's custom character awakens from a coma after five years[11] to find that their gang, the 3rd Street Saints, has been disbanded, and their former territories taken over by newly-formed criminal syndicates and a corrupt corporation. With the help of new and old allies, the player attempts to rebuild the Saints and take back Stilwater from their rivals.

Saints Row 2 is an action-adventure video game set in an open world environment, offering the player a large open environment in which to move around. The player's character is capable of maneuvering through the environment, utilizing weaponry and engaging in melee combat warfare.[1][12] After successfully completing the first game mission, the player meets the Third Street Saints and begin their devious schemes with the gang. Missions are unlocked by earning 'Respect' points from minigames and side-missions[13] and although completing missions is necessary for game progression, players can complete them at their own leisure. The player is granted the option of instantly retrying the missions should they fail an attempt. Numerous checkpoints save progress in each mission, and missions can be replayed from locations within the environment. Aside from attempting missions, the player can explore the environment, purchase items at shops and participate in the aforementioned mini-games and side-missions.[14][unreliable source?] The player can also wreak havoc upon the city of Stilwater which can provoke potentially fatal attention from authoritative forces.[15] The player can recruit members from a friendly gang and use a mobile phone to contact friends and/or businesses, as well as to input cheat codes.[16] Entering cheats will disable Xbox 360 achievements.

Players drive vehicles that are stolen, bought or unlocked. Aside from automobiles, players can use boats and water craft,[17] helicopters,[18] fixed-wing aircraft,[19] and motorcycles.[15][20] A cruise control system can be activated while using land or sea vehicles.[21] Waypoints can be placed on the pause-screen map, leaving a GPS route between the player character's location and the set destination. Players can hail taxicab services and pay a fee to quickly navigate the city. By taking land vehicles to Mechanics, players can apply paint schemes, body mods, hydraulics and nitrous oxide.

Players create their own character through a system that allows them to modify gender, ethnicity, fitness, voice, face and hairstyle.[22][23][24] Walk and fighting styles, and personality traits can be assigned.[16][20][24] Players purchase clothes, tattoos and piercings, and set outfits can be bought or created and saved to the player character's wardrobe.[18][25] "Cribs" (safe houses) allow players to withdraw earnings, change outfits, replay missions and save the game.[22] Cribs can be customized by applying themes and purchasing objects like TVs and pool tables.[20] Boats and fixed-wing aircraft can be stored at purchased docks and hangars. Players select the outfits, vehicles, gestures and graffiti styles used by street members of the Third Street Saints.[26]

The combat systems from Saints Row have been updated but many of the basics remain unchanged.[12] While engaging in melee-based combat, the player character will perform combos and charge up attacks,[25] and can execute a finishing move if three consecutive hits are dealt.[16] With a gun equipped, the player can perform a groin attack, and can zoom in for a finer aim reticle.[24] The player can also employ the use of human shields,[16] and can use makeshift weapons pulled from the environment e.g. fire hydrants, cement blocks.[22] Should the player either commit illegal activities or incite rival gang members, they will provoke potentially fatal attention from authoritative figures or rival gangs. The notoriety bar is a visual representation of the proactivity of the opposing figures' response and continual inciting of these groups will bring about a more powerful response, such as SWAT teams from the police. The player will continue to be chased by these groups until captured or killed and must reduce the notoriety bar by either hiding from the police or gang and wait for it to "cool off", or by seeking out a drive-through confessional which will clear the notoriety bar for a small fee.[15] Should the player character be apprehended or killed, a small percentage of the player's earnings will be removed and the player will respawn at law or healthcare institutions. The game contains over forty different weapons, many of which have been recycled from Saints Row. The game allows the player to utilise new weapon types, examples of which include satchel charges, laser-guided rocket launchers, chainsaws and more.[27][28] The player has the ability to dual wield handguns and submachine guns. Weaponry can be purchased by the player from specific stores or unlocked throughout in-game progress.[19]

The Respect system is a scoring system where the player earns Respect points to unlock missions and progress through the storyline. The player can partake in storyline and stronghold missions only after filling up at least one bar of Respect, and Respect points are removed when the player starts a mission. The 'style rank' is a modifier of how much Respect the player can earn; this is increased by purchasing items for the player character. Respect points can be earned in two ways; by progressing through side-missions called Activities and by completing mini-games and stunts called Diversions.[13]

The game contains competitive multiplayer modes, supporting between four and twelve players in a match.[46][47] There are two standard deathmatch modes; the free-for-all "Gangsta Brawl" mode and its team-based variant, "Team Gangsta Brawl".[48] Another mode, known as "Strong Arm", puts two teams against each other fighting for control over the neighborhood.[39][49] In "Strong Arm", the first team to earn $100,000,000 dollars wins and money is earned by competing head-to-head in activities, controlling "tag spots" which serve as bonus modifiers or by eliminating members of the opposing team.[50] While in a party, players are free to roam around a lobby.[48][51] The player can rank up in multiplayer and displays this by earning various "badges" which are displayed next to the player's name.[51][52] By ranking up, the player can unlock more expensive clothing for their multiplayer character.[citation needed]

Five years after the explosion on Richard Hughes' yacht, the player character (Charles Shaughnessy, Kenn Michael, Alex Mendoza, Katie Semine, G.K. Bowes, or Rebecca Sanabria), who was the sole survivor, awakens from a coma within the infirmary of Stilwater's maximum security prison after undergoing extensive plastic surgery. They escape to Stilwater with the help of Carlos Mendoza (Joe Camareno), the brother of a former 3rd Street Saints member, who explains that the gang has since disbanded. Most members were arrested by Troy Bradshaw (Michael Rapaport), an undercover cop who had infiltrated the gang as a lieutenant, and who has since become Chief of Police, using his influence to protect the imprisoned Saints. In the gang's absence, their former base of operations, the Saint's Row district, has been redeveloped into a pristine commercial and residential area by the Ultor Corporation, who have further plans for Stilwater.

Many of the original Saints Row developers continued onto the sequel's team. Thus, the team worked from their lessons learned rather than starting anew. The two games were consequently similar in design.[7] They overhauled the game engine to enhance the sequel's graphics,[5] and added contrast and higher-quality textures to make the city setting of Stilwater more realistic.[26] Visual enhancements were also applied to people, cars, explosions, lighting, shadows, and the weather system.[5][26] A central design goal was to "create a world that exists independent of the player" that featured more realistic non-player characters (NPCs)[61] that would smoke cigarettes, use cellphones, drink coffee, open umbrellas when it rained, and physically interact. The original game's engine could not support proximity NPC interaction like sitting together or cuddling.[62] As the city design finalized late in development, the team laboriously hand-placed 20,000 nodes throughout the game world that trigger NPC actions.[62]

The Saints Row series narrative was conceived as a three-part story, with Saints Row 2 as the second of the three.[63] While the developers continued the story of the original game, they sought to accommodate newcomers to the series.[29] The final script had roughly 80,000 lines of dialogue, twice that of Saints Row's.[62] The story drew strong cinematic influence from Quentin Tarantino films Pulp Fiction[5] and Kill Bill.[64] While the script was written to follow "a path of betrayal, revenge and redemption", the game retains Saints Row's light humor,[65] with the "over-the-top, socially distorted" narrative juxtaposed with dark, gritty moments.[64] Saints Row's silent protagonist speaks in Saints Row 2, granting the protagonist more personality and improving the storytelling, according to James Tsai, one of the lead designers.[64] They sought to heavily stylize the game's characters and assign them unique personality traits.[6][29] The basic character designs followed naturally from the story Volition wanted to tell, but the characters' personalities and mannerisms were mainly a product of the voice acting performances, where the actors had freedom to interpret and develop their characters.[29] The game's voice actors include film and television stars such as Neil Patrick Harris, Michael Dorn, Mila Kunis, Jay Mohr, Keith David, and Eliza Dushku.[66]
