Saints Row 2 is not a better game than Grand Theft Auto IV. Let's just get that out of the way now. Its action isn't too deep, its story is kind of stupid and it's nowhere near as immersive as the game that its detractors will accuse it of copying. The reality, though, is that Saints Row 2 isn't trying to be GTA IV at all. In fact, it seems specifically designed for people who hate GTA IV.
