Ok you know how it goes, and great game such as Grand theft auto, and a few years after you get cheap imatations, saints row is exactly that, with the same sort of gang warfare in the story line it hard to see why this game was made in the first place.
gameplay - to start with all of the game play is totallly wrong, for one you dont have auto aiming which is the one thing that a grand theft auto rip of should have. also the fact that there are hundreds of glithes in the game. and the fact that the game seems quite empty.
also there is the fact that in the game you have to boost your respect raito with the gangs in order to progress other missions.
Story - you first start just wandering the streets then all of a sudden you are caught up in a gang war. and then you are recruted by the 3rd street saints. and the game goes from there, you have to basically take back the entire city and place it back under your control.
Graphics - the graphics in this game are brillinat, especially the way that you have car crashes but you dont have bikes or planes in this game only cars. the physics how ever are very different, when you are jumping out of a moving vehicle you land on the ground like you would when you die. but the only problem with that is, it take ages to get back up of the floor.
the game does have its good elements such as good music, which sort of plays from when you are inside the car. the only problem is does get a little irritateing.
the game does have a few good points but its not worth paying the full price, just wait for GTA4 to come out.
