The much anticipated sequel, Saints Row 2 has been kicking up a bit of a fuss all over the internet in recent months. Whether it was the subtle swings it made at GTA, its recent delay or even as recently as today, its newly announced all star cast. What we know is, there is a vibe following this game around that screams "AWESOME!"

Best news is? We've seen it and played it at the Games Convention and the footage is below. Check it out.

Looks clunky, and having A as drive is stupid, cause that way it's even more harder to shoot.

...But this shall be better than GTA4, due to Saints Row 1 was more entertaining... for me anyways.

the graphics need to be tweaked, but otherwise, it looks tight.

loving the close ups of the melee attacks. the character customization in the first one was awesome too. hopefully the multiplayer doesnt suck for the first six months this time around.

I'm gonna love playing this, except for the needing to do everything in coop achievements lol. I'm gonna have a few saves in this game.

I tried getting into the first game but it's so juvenile, from end to end. Dirty jokes and dialog that seem like it was written by teens. GTA4 is clever and subtle about the toilet humor, this franchise tries way, way, WAY too hard.

Looks cool but notice at 1:20 how it suddenly changes camera angle in mid-fight. I hate it when games do that :(

at 15, i actually think that Volition dont try with the franchise. They act all childish for a reason, they are trying to make it different from GTA IV in a degree of taking itself a lot less seriously to make the game sell. Its got be unique in some ways to make it sell over GTA IV

Physics look a little squiffy, hopefully it will play better than it looks.

Not sure about all the hatred towards GTAIV, it's almost like its cool to dis it....IMO, it's a great game, with immense replay value.

at #5, how is it going to be any different, its the same as using the trigger for accel and a/x for fire just the other way round.

Ewww it looks horrible. I really hope that is just an early beta demo because it looks so unfinished.

The room at the beginning is so sparse and the character movement is so twitchy.

Think this might be a rental before a purchase...

Looks good, I agree with the A to drive, seems neanderthal-ish as far as driving in games go.

From when i got Saints Row (Classic), it had A to Drive, but i just changed it to setup 2 and it made A shoot and triggers to accelerate, so im sure this game will be interchangable, since Voliation probably prefer one control method while gamers may prefer another!
