Worth it??

I have just been playing SR3 and I fancy having a go at SR2 as this was my first time playing the game and I really like it,

is SR2 worth getting after playing SR3?

I bought all three because i was bored and never touched them before.
the first one was amazing and the second one so far is proving to be awesome as well, cant wait until the third.
the main reason id say to play them in order is the story and they just get better each time, i dont know how well that work going backwords

I'd say go for it. SR3 is the best so far in gameplay ( tighter controls, better driving/flying ), but SR2 has the better soundtrack, a bigger city, better collectibles ( CDs & tags rather than cash, sex dolls & drugs ), more interesting gangs and the best story of the series so far. I'm honestly hoping SR4 has the city size, soundtrack variety, and caliber of story 2 has, with 3's tight controls & upgrade system. I also prefer 2's Fuzz & Septic Avenger activities to the always there Snatch & Escort or 3's Guardian Angel.
Ore Sanjou!

Saints Row 2 is superior in every way, shape and form. You'd be ignorant to think otherwise.

All Saints Row games are way better than GTA! GTA series is too stuck up to add more fun in to them. Saints Row is the other way around.

The problem with Saints Row and Saints Row 2 is that they feel as old as they are compared to Saints Row: The Third. I'm having a hard time playing the first one because of it.

Saints Row 2 is one of my favorite games ever. Back in 2006, I was impressed by Saints Row as a GTA fan but never got that far, because it was a bit frustrating and the controls felt weird. Years later, I gave SR2 a chance but soon forgot about it until another year later when I finally finished it and replayed the first one afterwards. And holy crap was it worth it!

I recently replayed all three games again and really enjoyed the story of SR & SR2. Especially the story of SR2 is absolutely great. It's serious, sad, intense, scenic and a bit funny. Every minute in Stilwater makes me sad how dull Saints Row The Third is in comparison to the first two games. I had so much fun replaying the first games, that I even find the controls of them better than in SRTT now.

There is so much more to do, to see and to get in SR2 than in SRTT. Give it a chance, play activities through their last level early in the game, save often and enjoy the cutscenes, dialogs, music, environment, easter eggs, rewards etc.

And your opinion is based on what? Unless you can provide a good arguement, you're simply trolling for a flame war.

Back on topic, I rather enjoyed Saints row 2 alot and got stack loads of fun out of it. However it does have worse graphics and controls than the third. In fact the graphics of the second one weren't that great to begin with.
It still has a ridiculous storyline but not as much as the third one.

Alot of people have said they were drawn to Saints row as it echoed GTA: San Andreas for the current generation (Xbox360, PS3)

So starting from the third one in the series it can be hard goin back to appreciate (note: APPRECIATE) the first and second. Give them a go though, at least to see how far along the series has come.
