This is a ghetto version of GTA 4. The game already froze up on me 2 times on the first day. Having to complete menial "activities" like running over people in a flaming ATV before you can play missions is just plain silly. It's the developers' way of ensuring we play more of the game than we want or need to play.
If you're rating this game solely on its own without ever playing GTA, then it would be a 6, maybe. Now, after playing the most recent GTA only makes you realize just how much better it was or how much worse Saints Row is. However, I did play it slightly longer then Army of Two (Less then 30 minutes) but you will not get through much of it if you've played and enjoyed GTA.
