Alot of people say that Saints Row is a GTA rip off. Not how i felt playing the game. I'll admitt yes it recreates alot of the san adreas fire and action, but the story was alot better. The on the side activities were alot better than "going bowling with a friend" or playing pool. that stuff was cool but too much of it made the player lose track of the actual game and eventually kills the actual story line. The Cliff Hanger ending add to the excitment of the game, because now you are like now what. Well Saints Row 2 came out already. But this is SR1 we are talking about. Yes there alot of glitches yes there are alot similiarities to GTA san andreas, yes it doesn't have realistically amazing graphics, but its cartoony graphics make it an awesome game. And as much as people say Saints Row copied GTA well GTA IV copied alot of Saints Rows ideas, the whole cell phone idea, the wayn point on the map was First in saints row. so it was a give and take.
