Saints row has been claimed as a GTA knock off, maybe so maybe not, graphically the characters were put together very well, car customization is great, the different paint types all add the visual effect you want for your car. the only lacking parts are the multiplayer and the mission depth. but overall a very good game with great playability. Overall it seems as though the multiplayer was thrown in as a secondary option. Pimp slapping other players or team mates is always fun, and blinged out rides has some flash, but aside from that the multiplayer is very lacking and should be played only out of extreme boredom, i would say buy it, but that is also personal opinion if you dont like this kind of game i would say still rent it. Overall it is a good game, and the fact that you dont completely lose a car when it blows up is a very nice touch, great game guns and car customization along with the RPG factors of the character customization and the ability to commit robberies is very fun.
