TeamXbox writes: "The more we see of Saints Row 2, the sequel to Volition's popular GTA knock-off, the more we understand how hard they're trying to not be a GTA knock-off. Where GTA has eschewed the notion of dumping anything and everything into their world to make it seem more complex in favor of telling a compelling narrative, Saint's Row 2 has gone the opposite route and is embracing the "more is more" mentality. Not necessarily a bad thing.
In fact, the more cartoonish Saints Row 2 gets, the less we feel the need to0 compare it to Rockstar's game, and the more we start to like the idea of it on a certain level. Why not give gamers a huge box full of toys, even if they don't use them all."
