Saints Row: The Third Review - It's Like Grand Theft Auto, Except Fun

FleshEatingZipper writes: There are parts of Saints Row: The Third that couldn’t escape the tell-tale traits of a criminal sandbox game.

Saints Row 2 isn't fun I know I've played it.

You want a fun GTA type game that is over the top as the PS2 GTA games that is on current gen ? Then get Ballad of gay tony. Unlike Saints Row 3 it has substance.

Saints row is like GTA but without the quality, the king will be with us next year but this will do for now, the cars for example are terrible quality compared to GTAIV , a game from 2008.

Whats quality if the game isn't fun? Whats with putting graphics over gameplay this gen? Jeeze you guys make my games boring and underwhelming.
