Rated 10 out of 10 by Daniel Aponte Better than Grand Theft Auto
Saints Row takes the story of a man who joins a gang called ''The 3rd Streets Saints''.But before that you were just a regular guy walking down the streets and you get in the middle of a gang war.Till then one of the gang member that is left alive would try to shoot you untill the gang leader of the Saints ''Julius'' comes and saves you.Now the guy is ''mute'' but earlier on the game after each of 3 oppossing gangs are dead the guy would just say something even at the end game. This may look like a GTA but if GTA would make a RPG gae then they would have made this but Violation Inc. has did it. If you like RPGs,Expolsion,Guns,or just loves GTA I suggest you get this. Saints Row is a bit short but if you just relax and do some activies you can get unlockable rewards to help you along the game.Untill you get the ''final'' mission. Also that this game really does take GTA 2's ''Respect is everything'' real seriously since you gonna need along of RESPECT to do missions and strongholds
Rated 9 out of 10 by GameReviewMan I was amazed
Now when i walked up to people and asked, "is this game basicly Grand theft auto?" they said no. That made me nervous to buy this game but i did anyway and i was shocked! Besides the graphics, this game has more stuff to do then Grand Theft Auto! It was amazing. You can hold up stores and they acually walk back to the safe and they open it for you! There was one part of the game i thought was very funny. You can walk into a liquor store and buy drugs and alchohol. Now the funny part about that is that if you drink more then 2 bubblies Your guy starts to vomit randomly uncontrolably! lol! now when you use a bong your screen fills up with smoke! try to drive with that! This game is definitly a major crime game and you can do everything in grand theft auto and more! id say that about 75% of the people who like grand theft auto will like this game more! you can free roam, steal cars and iteams (you can pawn the iteams) and do fun missions. definitly a excelent game! you will not be disapointed!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Pancaker72onXboxLIVE The best free roam game ever
This is the best free-roam game ever because there is a great storyline. You are caught in a gang fight that involves all the gangs featured in the game (Westside Rollerz, Vice Kings, Los Carnales, & you are in the 3rd Street Saints). Julius (leader of the Saints) helps you up after you are held at gunpoint. He then recruits you to the 3rd Street Saints. From there, you can shop, rob the shops, kill people, crack safes, go to stripper clubs, etc. You can go to your Crib and park stolen or bought cars in your garage and simply walk out to store them. The only bad part about this game is that it is NOT AUTOSAVE, what I mean is that it is a MANUAL SAVE game. You have to go either to your Crib, or to the 3rd Street Saints' Church to save your game and it won't save without it. It also has regular Xbox graphics and is moderately old. Anyway, I think this game deserves an 8.8 because of its graphics and price (I think it should be lower). Great overall.
Rated 8 out of 10 by MafiaMayor165 Not a Bad Game
Honestly, this is an enjoyable game, its not as bad as people say it is. Its not better than the second saints row, but its still enjoyable, the city is descent, the characters are likeable, the story is pretty good, it makes you want to keep playing and see what happens next, it really does have grand theft auto vibe to it There is so much to do In the city. This is one of the two saints row that was really good, except for the 3rd and 4th which are both garbage. The few things thing I didn't like about this game was that you couldn't, fly planes, or helicopters, or have motorcycles, or boats. and that the weapon selection wasn't too big, and the cheats sucked, and the swearing made it a little awkward to play, pretty much the only part where you don't hear swear words in this game is on the loading screen. But other than that this game is a decent game, worth the money. If you like this one, you will love the 2nd one.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Slipstream720 Great Fun!
I got this game for a quick fix because I needed something new, and boy am I glad I got this! Lets start off with gameplay. Right from the start, you get a quite immersive player creator, and endless possibilities for clothing. The story line has you play missions that often include killing other gangs, but the writing and voice acting in this game is phenomenal. The story also gets quite immersive. You can collect as many cars as you want in your crib's garage, and you can mod or "trick" them out at any auto body shop. There aren't many weapons, but the 12 there are will keep you satisfied. Never mind the main storyline, but you can also participate in a barrage of side activities. There is Insurance Fraud, Snatch, Hitman, Drug Trafficking, Mayhem (my favorite) and so much more. I have a few complaints though; the graphics are okay but they aren't the best they can be, there are moderate pop-up issues (cars disappear from the street and your surroundings get severely glitchy on the highway), and the driving controls are slightly clunky. And thats all, folks!
Rated 8 out of 10 by jabba997 OK game
Saints row is a fun game. Screwing around is more fun than doing missions and more fun than screwing around in GTA. The good things about the game is the graphics, clothes, cars and guns. The enviroment graphics weren't so great on the streets. First of all when you kill someone no blood is left behind. Also when you feel like having a road rage moment by wrecking the car in front of you. If you look away for one second, even if it's right in front of you, when you look back it will disappear. Also i think the sounds of the guns could be better; same with the cars because when you shoot a gun it sounds like a soft metal rubbing with another and when you drive it sounds nothing like a car and the cars are very slow. When i play GTA san andreas those cars can go so fast the screen starts shaking. My suggestion would be to rent the game before you buy it so you don't waste any of your money. Even though the game is cheap, money is money. So if you don't like the first one, wait for saints row 2. It's supposed to be a lot better with graphics, gameplay and sound.
Rated 10 out of 10 by bdub1193 AMAZING!!
That's the one word you need to describe it. AMAZING. Why wouldn't you like this game is the only question I have. I mean come on Great graphics, custamization, missions, storyline, cars, city. It's awesome. There are so many cool clothing combinations it's not even funny. If you wanted to you could finish the game in a day or two, but that's almost impossible because you get busy doing everything else. I would sit down and play for an hour or 2 and only do one mission. I think it's more fun screwing around in this game than in any of the Grand Theft Autos. Yes i'm excited fot GTA 4 but i'm way more excited for August to role around and Saint Row 2. If they keep the gameplay the same I don't know how they could go wrong. Saints Row's gameplay is almost flawless. The only!!! thing I dont like is driving with the A button but it's that bad. Because really does drive the speed limit?
Rated 9 out of 10 by Meleemaster30 Great Game
Saints row redefines fun. These aren't the best graphics, but the storyline is excellent. If you like games like GTA, then you'll love Saints Row. The creativity of 4 gangs and an unbelievable choice of player customization. This game has a lot of other cool features. You can even shoot a guy dressed as a hotdog! I would give the graphics a 7 because, even though it was one of the first games for xbox 360, the graphics could have been better. The game is pretty long if you're not a master at simulation/action games. Overall, the game is fun to play and it gives you a few easy achievements also. The achievements are another story, but what I will say, that most of them are very challenging and doesn't give you the feeling of, "easy gamerscore" like other games. I suggest buying Saints Row, or at least rent it. This game is rated M for mature, but M is too little for the entire game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Endwar 3 Saints come marching in!!
Saints row there's so much to this game I'm not sure I'll be able to fit it into this review. First off character creation is just amazing so many ways to do it and it sure is fun. Now for the big review storyline is basically you initiate yourself into a gang and from there it' jam-packed action missions are awesome and very fun and when your not doing mission's it's a free world to do anything and everything you want that's the whole awesome!!! thing about this game I mean you can go to the clothing store or buy the dude gold watches or rings or even buy cars!!!! wepon selection is really good like M-4 and shotguns bazookas grenades pistols really good selection and graphics fall short there not good but there not horrible ethier but speaking in other words this game is solid fun and jam-packed with action your gonna have a good night with SAINT'S ROW thanks for reading

For this game I researched it a lot and i decided to watch some online gameplay on youtube. so when i got it i was expecting to play it online always, but it was like May 08 that i got it, (so like only one week ago) and by then there was no one online anymore, because it was old. so i decided to start playing the story. the moment i got into it, i couldn't get over how amazing the gameplay was and the story and how fast it catches you at the beginning. This game is really cool. And for those of you who are saying that it is just a crappy imitation of GTA. You are only half right. It is open world like GTA and they both have to do with crime, but that is the only thing really. This game is like GTA, but way better made. The only thing that I wish that there was a lot less of is swearing and such. But other then that i'd say that this game is one of the best games I have played.
