Saints Row 2 packshot image
Five years have passed since your former Saints crew betrayed you. As you awake from a coma for the first time since that fateful day, you find the Stilwater you once ruled is in disarray. Unfamiliar gangs have laid claim to your territory, rival factions have taken over your rackets, and cash-hungry corporations have laid waste to your once proud 3rd Street home. Abandoned and left scarred with an unrecognizable face, you seek out a plastic surgeon to begin your new life on the streets of Stilwater.

PC System Analysis For Saints Row 2 Requirements
Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce 8800 GTS/Radeon HD 3800 series and it should be paired with either a Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4000+/Pentium 4 3.2GHz CPU to match the Saints Row 2 recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. You should also have 2 GB system memory. You should also have 1 GB system memory for min specs. This means you will require a 14 year old PC to play smoothly.

Can my laptop run this game at all?
It has Intel Pentium Dual-Core 2117U 1.8GHz
Graphics Card is Intel HD Graphics 2500 (GT1)
4 gigs of RAM
I have my Dedicated video memory up to 512MB, but I think that made the game choppy, dunno.
Even on Low & Medium settings, I get about 20 frames, and very choppy speeds. Trying to figure out what games this laptop runs.

Maybe with gentlemen of the row mod, you might get 720p lowest settings, but I don't know if it will be 30 fps or not. The optimization is awful for this game.

Lol, still cant play it at constant 60fps (everything is maxed), but it's smooth enough. I have been waiting so long to play this game. I love the sequels, so I bought this a few years ago, but my pc wasn't enough(i5 2430m, hd6470m, 4gb ram(yes it was a notebook))
