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.
