Saints Row 2 has a gameplay structure similar to Saints Row. On foot, the player’s character is capable of walking, running, swimming, climbing and jumping, as well as utilising weapons and basic hand-to-hand combat. After Saints Row was produced and work begun on Saints Row 2, the streaming engine was completely rewritten.
Because of this, new air-based vehicle types and online co-operative play have been made possible, along with many new major improvements to provide a smooth, interactive world, with significant decreases in terms of glitches, bugs and pop ins. The game incorporates three difficulties: casual, normal and hardcore, which can be changed at the beginning of the game.Over 40 story missions with additional bonus missions take place in a transformed Stilwater that is over 50% larger than before. Limitless Customization Play as fully customizable characters that are male, female or something in between. Cribs, vehicles and even gangs all have customization options.
Multiplayer Co-op full story campaign has seamless integration (for example one player drives while the other shoots). Competitive multiplayer pushes the boundaries of immersion in a living Stillwater environment fully populated with police, innocent bystanders and rival gangs. Planes, helicopters, motorcycles, boats and cars can be piloted and used as weapons. On the ground new combat options include melee, fine aim, and human shield
