Released by Volition in October 2008, Saint's Row 2 is available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Similar to Grand Theft Auto or Crackdown, Saint's Row 2 is a sandbox style game that allows the player to go wherever and do whatever in the fictional city of Stilwater. Weapons factor heavily into the gameplay, and Saint's Row 2 is unique in the provision of combat swords. Players can sword fight in-game enemies or other players in multiplayer mode.
Obtain a sword by killing any Ronin gang member.
Select the weapon from your inventory.
Press the "Primary Attack" button to perform a quick vertical slash. Press the "Secondary Attack" button to perform a slower horizontal slash.
Counter enemy attacks by pressing either attack button just before their blade strikes your body. Successful counters usually kill your opponent instantly.
Move behind your opponent for easier kills.
Tips & Warnings
- Kill nine gang members using only the sword during a single fight to unlock the
- "Slice n' Dice" achievement for the Xbox 360 version.
- Using a sword leaves you very vulnerable to gunfire. Use the sword with caution, especially when you haven't saved the game recently.
