"Rise up homies, flash your colors, and throw up your gang signs: Stillwater's number one crew in purple, the 3rd Streets Saints, are rolling once more, and this time it's in a city nearly one and a half times larger.
The original Saints Row, also developed by Volition, is a sandbox-style game in the vein of Grand Theft Auto or Crackdown. The sandbox action genre has seen a boom in the current generation of consoles. Developers can quickly jump on a format, and completely suck the life out it by offering a relentless series of clones. So far, this does not seem to be the case for the Saints Row series. Clone? Yes. Lifeless? Not by a long shot."
