Very Good

upgrade from GTA

This game was really entertaining. I didnt play SR2 but this was a whole lot better than GTA4. From customizing your character anytime through out, to buying property to make income to upgrade. I felt this was a bit like San Andreas with the whole gang affiliation. I loved to get 3 homies n mob it up to take down another rival gang. I made a curvy punk/goth chick with full on tats, n customized my gang with all punk chicks as my gang.
Only knocks would be the slim line of cars, n with all the intricate features from customizing your face to what u wear to upgrading your guns gang abilities cars crib features, YOU COULDNT GAMBLE TO MAKE EXTRA ENDS! A huge huge let down. Nothing more that says curruption than prostitution, drug trafficking, and gambling!
I beat the game and really didnt take interest in buying every property and tat shops to feel like i accomplished the entirety. Again anyone who digs the GTA titles (many of us) a must play. My punk/gothic chick makes Niko look like another target at the end of her .45 Maybe her n Carl Johnson should pair up?

I don't know if this a case that many of the newer sandbox games have gotten much better and Saints Row has lagged behind, but this game is almost unplayable. I recall the earlier Saints Row titles had glitches, but I don't recall them being this bad. I don't have a problem with the vulgar humor, but this game is definitely not for kids. The main issues I had were with the controls. I think this game has gotten such a high rating, because of the vulgarity, because the gameplay is horrific. Not worth even a rental.

It was a very boring game for me i felt they over used the funny category honestly I liked Saints Row 2 better than this. It basically became pointless after the game was beat
thus making it a terrible bore since ther was nothing left to do after the games been beat and another thing is how could they let gat DIE I mean it's gat he was my favorite character and when he died you dont even get to see it? but thats my opinion so the good part was that it had plenty of bright colors it wasnt a dull grey game it had many funny scenes and hard choices to make(not spoiling it) all in all it was a o.k game but it could have been better if they just stuck with the old way
