A good game, but very hard not to compare to the GTA series...

However, I will say that there is one very tedious thing to Saint's Row 2... and that starts right before you see your character for the first time; the character creation. It was a very nice touch, allowing you to modify your character to your liking, but some of the options given were just ridiculous and more or less unneeded; at least for the beginning of the game. Especially if you're like me and look at every single option available to you.
But regardless of the lengthy character creation, it was a good game to play. I thought some of the dialogue was fun to listen to; especially when comparing how the male and female voices sounded through the storyline missions, and the soundtrack for the game was pretty solid.
But in the long run, Saint's Row 2, no matter how you look at it, is far too short a game. I was amazed at how short a time it had taken me to complete and in a way, it was kind of disappointing.
But in general, it is a good game for its genre... but definitely not the best. Its very hard to describe, when you have a popular series like GTA looming over.
