I've been thinking about it out... (and I'm going to pretend it's certainly not because Neil Patrick Harris voices DJ Veteran Child in the game) and after reading GameInformer's review, I'm even more intrigued.
The game gets an 8.75/10 (with an 8.5/10 second opinion) and if that doesn't entice you, maybe this will:
While – both graphically and in gameplay – Saints Row feels behind the standards set by GTA IV, it has an ace up its sleeve in the online arena: true online co-op. And it works. Going through the main story mode with a friend is a hoot, plain and simple [...] (review)
Used, this game runs about $34.99 and since I won't have steady access to Xbox Live until September, I'm in no rush. GTA IV is something you love, Cary, and the co-op in this... with us... would create many more hilarious stories. Come on, I know you're thinking about that time I jumped across the bridge in RE5 when that truck driver was coming at me and I realized my rifle wasn't equipped, and I turned to you, trying desperately to jump to the other side shouting "It's not equipped, it's not equipped!" You want more of those.
Anybody have anything to say, one way or the other, about Saints Row 2?
SIDENOTE: I will be on Xbox Live (on and off) between July 10th and July 13th. Cary and I will be playing Left 4 Dead, and I'm not sure what else. Maybe another game I could convince you to get is Castle Crashers, Cary. Kendall and I will certainly be playing that this weekend.
