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.
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!
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
360 Ace, One of the best reasons to have 360
Saints Row does look like a San Andreas copy but after the first mission the only thing youll remember about San Andreas is the Ballers wear purple just like you
Story is really Good
Characters are very likeable
City is Big and enjoyable
a lot of comedy so this isn't just about being in a gang and killing ppl in an open world game
plenty of side missions and activities to do and if you love the ability of customizing your character then this is a great game to do just that
only thing I can say bad about this game is that it could have had a better soundtrack but if you have a usb cable and an Ipod no worries youll be just fine
one of my all time faves and one of the few good reasons to have 360 and keep it
Pros: Story, Characters, very fun city to explore, Customization, and Gameplay is fun and easy to learn
Cons: weak soundtrack
its not bad like people say it is
i like this one because it is more challenging than the others. The other games are cake walks compared to this game. i like all the gangs and the missions are fun. The only problem is the graphics but what do you expect from a game made in 2006?
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
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.
Always wanted a game like this
It has what gta doesnt but gta san andaes and IV is still better than saints row's first installment. The main issue is you cant aim, kinda sucks and makes a fire fight pretty spaztic, besides that its a pretty decent game with open game play, and lets you do things the other gtas didnt. oh and your character doesnt speak, kinda lame
A nice competitor to GTA
This game I have to say is a pretty good competitor to GTA. GTA is better though just because the missions are better and I have to say the cars are better. Especially the driving controls but the place where you pimp your cars out is better in SR. The whole story line of GTA is a hell of a lot better than saints row. The weapons are a lot better in GTA and they are a lot easier to find in GTA. I don't know if it's just me but I thought the weapons sucked. Pretty much the reason why I bought the game was to compare it to San Andreas, and it proved that San Andreas was a lot better partly because of the graphics and partly because I thought that you were a lot more free in GTA SA. I would say get a GTA instead of Saints Row, but it's whatever you want to do.
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!
