This Game should of came with Utters...

I say this because your going to be milked for the next 40 weeks
I didn't pay mind into the whole 40 weeks of DLC but all the DLC that has been released or even announced are things that should of been in the game in the first place

Originally I was going to purchase this but after they released the Initiation Station ...I thought "maybe this isn't going to be as good as SR2"
sadly I was right

The story was too much nonsense and no actual substance. I didn't understand any of it to be honest. All I understood was they killed Johnny (which sucked) and then the Saint's wanted to take over the city. the rest was just nonsense and blah

The way the missions were set up were the worst part for me. All the missions were pretty linear with nearly no freedom, unlike choosing which gang to take down, they all were one gang, and the most horrible thing was they incorporated side missions into the main story so you had to do them which made the story feel like it was treading water and the endings don't feel as gratifying as killing off a gang

The customization is good but also gutted at the same time
as many have stated they removed layers which sucks
but also you can't make someone morbidly obese or emaciated and the texture for the old skin is just disgusting
I liked to use an old skinny asian lady but...the skin is too gross. I do like the large amount of skintones you can choose though

One thing i personally don't like is the zombie cheat because SPOILER an entire area turns into a zombie world so its really pointless

I can't say I didn't enjoy the game though, I did have fun for the a few hours but I played children's games that had better stories

If you don't understand why I gave this a 5 suggested you rent Saint's Row 2 and you'll understand

I'd rather wait 40 more weeks for a full game
then be milked for 40 weeks and purchase a game that feels really unfinished

why all the perfect 10 rating ?

the only things that was really good in this version other than SR2 was the fact they had way better music stations with much better music with classics , Ton'lok and few other classics but most would disagree since 95% would prefer some todays boring bland hip-hop etc, etc . that being said the upside to the game is that it's got awesome action scenes like jumping off buildings w/parachute and base jumping in mid air and in air gun play along with some funny dialogue i mean thats why it got the M rating for a reason .
other than that the story isn't so evolved as SR2 was you had different Main story missions you could do at any given time were as you get one at any given time with of course side missions that are little different than SR2 .
i mean the game is fun an exciting but after awhile its gets pretty boring doing the same ol same ol stupid things over and over again.
you can beat it in less than 5 days maybe less if you dont reach the max lvl of 50 and all the side missions.

other than those factors id say your better off renting this unless your a hardcore fan of the SR franchise or GTA franchise .
other wise save your money and rent it don't waste your money buying it otherwise. i for one am glad i got gamefly specifically for this purpose .

they do have 1 thing other games need more of is bring back the 1-hit wonder Classics and overall Classic music(rock,pop,rap,etc) into games instead of the same ol stuff thats mostly in other games .

and seriously a perfect score of 10? come on i mean nothing is perfect including games so why give it a perfect 10 score .
