  1. It's hard to think of a reason why you'd part with good money for the limited extra entertainment offered by this DLC. There are two more downloadable packs on the way for Saints Row 2, but Volition has much to do to convince players to part with their cash next time.
  2. If you’ve already completed the main game then Ultor Exposed is nothing more than a diversion, and a relatively expensive one at that.

    In the day and age where DLC is sometimes criticized because it could actually have been included in the retail disc, it is nice to see some substantial content for a game that already came packed with so much.
  4. The three new missions take around one hour to finish, but the Meta-Game and the new multiplayer maps bring an extra duration to this add-on. Nothing remarkable in this Ultor Exposed expansion, but still a nice option for those who were asking for more Saint’s Row 2.
  5. Don't go expecting there to be a whole catalogue of things to do though, as the inventory of items added to the itinerary would barely fill an A5 flyer.
  6. Ultimately, Saints Row 2: Ultor Exposed is only going to appeal to the hardest of the hardcore Saints Row 2 players, and even then, many of them are likely to be disappointed with the content.
  7. The value of the downloadable content is surely the pack’s questionable aspect. Adding multiplayer maps to a pretty poor online mode won’t please the vast majority of fans of the title that have no love for its multiplayer gangsta’ stylings. Those that love Saints Row 2 for its wide open, co-op enabled world will ultimately come away disappointed having spent 800 points on what ultimately is a few extra vehicles and an hour’s worth of gameplay.
  8. However, the fact remains that for those who have completed Saints Row 2, there's not a lot of bang for your buck here.
  9. If you are looking for single player action steer clear, purchase only if you play online a lot.
  10. I initially tried to justify the cost of the content based on all content included, and while for those who are still addicted to the row, these newly mentioned toys in the sandbox will be greatly welcomed. For the rest of us though, the new, incredibly-short story arc, ultimately acts as a big tease and unless you're addicted to Saints 2's multiplayer offerings, you will probably feel robbed of your 800MSP by the corrupt government that is the Ultor Corporation.

    Very disappointing, they promised a lot of new content and I was very let down by the content they provided. There's not much GOOD new Very disappointing, they promised a lot of new content and I was very let down by the content they provided. There's not much GOOD new hair, the new vehicles aren't very good (can't customize any of them), and I can't even FIND the clothes they mentioned. The storyline is only three missions... ONLY THREE MISSIONS!? Come on. It ends with Tera getting an interview with the news, the news chick twisting Tera's words and then Tera saying she'll get her revenge on Ultor. That's it? That's seriously it? I mean I wasn't expecting a big storyline but that's pathetic. Full Review »

    This DLC package is one best reserved for only the most diehard Saints Row fans who want to stretch out the length of the game a little bit This DLC package is one best reserved for only the most diehard Saints Row fans who want to stretch out the length of the game a little bit longer. Given the amount of content, the pack is a complete ripoff. Most of the new clothes and facial accesories are boring, and the new vehicles would have been passable had they have been customizable. Then there's the horrific three-part story arc to discuss. This was obviously made on a very tight budget, as the story missions are completely terrible. Full Review »
