OnLive Releases Saints Row 2 and Three Other Games for the PlayPack

Today OnLive released 4 new PlayPack titles, which are Saints Row 2, Darkstar One, Dracula 3: Path of the Dragon and Ancient Spirits: Columbus’ Legacy.

OnLive PlayPack subscribers now have unlimited access to 91 different games. PlayPack subscribers pay a $9.99/month membership fee for access to all 91 games, plus a 30% off discount toward any future purchases on the OnLive service.


Saints Row 2, is a game that many OnLive members are happy to see. While they eagerly await the release of Saints Row The Third for the service on November 15th, they can now play the prequel. It is an open world action adventure game from publisher THQ and developer Volition. Prior to coming to OnLive today, it was released for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in October of 2008. This third-person shooter puts players in control of the Third Street Saints gang’s leader. The goal is a simple one; eliminate 3 rival gangs. It’s a fun game, with plenty of action. This is a single player game, sadly it's missing the 2-player co-op and MP, which OnLive gamers may play using the keyboard and mouse combination or the OnLive gamepad.

Saints Row 2 is set years after the original Saints Row in a Stilwater both familiar and strange. The explosive conclusion to Saints Row has left the player wounded, betrayed and thirsty for revenge, and now it's time to take back the city that has forgotten him. A sequel to the first open-world title on next-generation consoles, Saints Row 2 features all new customization options, including gender, age, voice, crib and gang customization. The sandbox just got larger with a totally transformed and expanded city of Stilwater, offering all new locations to explore with new vehicles, including motorcycles, boats, helicopters and planes.

Darkstar One is a game that comes to OnLive from publisher Kalypso Media, and developer Ascaron Entertainment (who also brought Port Royale 2 to the service). It’s a space combat simulation game that was released for the PC in June of 2006, and Xbox 360 in July of 2010. This single player action adventure game is split into different ARPG-type quests. Players take control of the game’s protagonist, Kayron Jarvis, who inherits The DarkStar One ship from his father who recently passed away. Your goal is initially to hunt down Jack Forrester, whom is believed to have killed your father. However, later you find out that it wasn’t him after all, but instead it was your father’s friend Robert who is responsible.

DarkStar One received mixed reviews, and has a Metacritic score of 71/100. It’s certainly a game that adds some value to the PlayPack, and is worth a shot. It is available in single player mode, and can be played using the keyboard and mouse combination.

Dracula 3: Path of the Dragon is an adventure game based on Bram Stoker's universe. It takes players to Europe on a suspenseful quest to locate Dracula. You play as Father Arno Moriani, the "Devil's Advocate". In September 1920, the Vatican appoints him to investigate a potential candidate for sainthood in Transylvania. But in the shadows of the disturbing ruins that were once Vlad the Impaler's castle, his investigation takes an unexpected turn...

There is obviously no such thing as vampires... at least according to the official line of the Catholic Church. But how can you be so sure, standing in the swirling mists of Transylvania ?

Carry out your investigation amidst tales of bloody deeds and ancestral fears. Doubts start clouding your mind and doubt begets fear...

Submerged into a riveting storyline, you are challenged to solve complex and engaging puzzles that lead to a final confrontation with Dracula! This gripping adventure sucks you in and leaves you "dying" for more.

Dracula 3: Path of the Dragon is a single player only game. You can play it with a mouse and keyboard.

Ancient Spirits: Columbus’ Legacy, is the fourth game added to the OnLive PlayPack this week. It is a puzzle type game from Cerasus Media, who also brought Build It! – Miami Beach Resort, to OnLive. Gamers must solve puzzles while exploring the ship of Christopher Columbus. While this isn’t the most graphically intense, action packed game in the PlayPack, it certainly can be very addicting. Gamers can play this single player game using the keyboard and mouse combination.
