GTA ripoff big time, how about some originality?,
This review is from: Saints Row (Platinum Hits) (Video Game)
After playing Dead-Rising at a friends house on his 360, I had pretty much decided I was going to buy one for myself, but after playing this boring, cheap-looking GTA rip-off, I'm not so sure. I was never a huge GTA fan to begin with, so you can imagine my 'joy' when after playing for 45 minutes or so, besides being totally bored, I felt like I had been playing San Andreas the whole time. I'm not kidding people, this is the exact game, drugs, ho's, pimps, ridiculous dialogue, lame tricked-out cars, lots and lots of guns...........yawn, been there, done that!!!!!!!! Now, don't get me wrong, I have nothing against violent games, Silent Hill and Manhunt are two of my favorites of all time, but the violence in those games serves a purpose, it's needed to tell the story and define the lead characters. The violence in Saint's Row is a joke, just glorified gang-warfare with so many dumb and un-necessary explosions I was closing my eyes most of the time to save myself from a seizure.
The dialogue between the pimps and ho's will absolutely crack you up, I'm pretty sure pimpin' today is nothing like it was in the 70's, but someone forget to tell this game that, absurd!!! I'm pretty sure a few woman's groups are gonna' have a field day with this title. Like I said earlier, after about 45 minutes of playing my friend and I just turned and looked at each other and just started bustin' out laughing, we both commented on how we had'nt played a game this bad in years. He bought it at Game Crazy, and upon returning it, the guy at the counter said he had had many complaints, and it wasn't the content he said people were upset about, it was just the fact that it was a lousy game-play, poor control, GTA missions we've all already done, and just a huge bore. So, needless to day, my friend was very happy cuz' the clerk understood and gave us a full refund........
Skip this one people, if you're that desparate for an envelope-pushing 'adult' game, play 'Dead-Rising' a few hundred times more (what an awesome game) or go old skool and play Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Manhunt, or hell, even go back and re-visit San Andreas, any are better then this re-tread!!!!!!!!!

GTA 4 - Gritty Realism
Saints Row - Over the Top wacky and zany explosions
Both are superb.
