Review: Saints Row

We can only hope that the developers of Grand Theft Auto IV are taking careful notes on Saints Row, the next generation of the "open world"-style games popularized by Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas. At first glance, Saints Row looks like little more than an Xbox 360-fortified version of San Andreas: from the mission design to the basic play mechanics to the tongue-in-cheek spirit, it's abundantly clear that Saints Row is firmly grounded in Rockstar Games' groundbreaking series. (Saints Row, Xbox 360) 4.75/5

Damn that's a real nice review!

I am really curious what GTA4 will do against all this power. It can only get stimulated to go even further. And it's there from day one in 2007 with downloadable content afterwards.

It's great news, if you want the most sleaziest game this time around you'll get Saints Row. In no other GTA game there is so much blood, violence, sex, bad things to do. Mature game, but it needs to be here. Just like Dead Rising. And I hope all moral stupid arguïng -for example in governments- stop. Parents are there to make sure their childeren don't buy it/play it. Just like with violence on TV/street, porn on TV or in videostores and hookers on the street.

Think I'm going to beat up some government members in the Saints Row demo now ;)

GTA sucked ? why is that you say
Because it was made for the PS2. Power limitations hurt GTA. GTA never had online. They had several chances to include it. SR had to include it to set it self apart. With Saints Row we might be saying GTA needs to step it up.
