I remember these games used to tell a story. Well the story in this game is sub par. Along with the toy guns and cartoon like characters, I felt like I was playing a ghetto version of Sonic the Hedgehog. I'm sure some people will enjoy it, but it's definitely not for me.

I understand they are not completely trying to copy grand theft auto anymore but the comparison will always be made. Grand theft auto IV was very detailed graphics were great the way people got shot and ragdolled when hit by your car were very realistc, even the driving itself was realistic. Saits row is selling itself on being the do whatever you want be crazy and wear stupid stuff... now that part(wear stupid stuff) i agree with you can customize your character alot which is cool and the car customization is cool at first but then boring but there wasnt anything to do. I liked customizing the weapons as well but after that the gameplay was terrible driving sucks the city seemed empty and cramped at the same time i didnt feel like i had free reign like i do with grand theft auto. So while they did throw in some good customizations they actual story and gameplay, shooting physics, and driving were just bad because i had GTAIV sitting in my cabinet with its arms folded saying "I told you it was gonna suck."
Game started pretty good then around mission 25 things started going wrong. had extreme screen tearing to the point that i could barely play. then when i got to mission 29 known as "the ho boat" i would go to where the mission start icon was it would go to a black screen as if it were loading but then it would just sit there. thought it might be a smudge or scratch on the disk so i looked nothing. when so far as to report to gamefly and got them to send a replacement and that still did not fix the problem. i don't know if anyone else has had this problem but i will not play this saints row again. i might give the fourth saints a try.
