It'll be entertaining like the first one but GTA has charm and character.

I played Saints Row (original) on my brother in law's 360 and it sucked balls. A cheap imitation.

agreed...Saint's Row just seems pretty ghetto more ways that was ok I guess, but didn't touch GTAIII...

but thats just it for me...since GTAIII, I think things have been going downhill since then...I liked Vice City less than III, and SA less than VC...I personally like GTAIII so much becuase of the heaviest focus on the had some gang stuff too...but there was a heavy mix of different types of organized crime...SA was almost all ghetto gang crap...the whole game felt like a music video for some lame hip-hop artist on MTV imo...that and it was simply too big...and VC was a blatant rip-off of Scarface, a movie that I loved since I was 13...but is getting totally played out by rappers thinking they relate to a cuban drug lord...

GTAIV seems to be returning to the GTAIII style...present day...with all kinds of crime syndicates...keep the variety high, thats all I want...I am not saying I don't want any hip/hop lifestyle type stuff in it...I just don't want the focus on that and nothing else...thats all...
