Kotaku: These days, Saints Row is very much a household name in gaming. It's a critically successful franchise, a game that has become notorious through its marketing and gimmickry, but also by being a whole lot of fun.
The Saints Row concept really came into its own in the third game, which I liked quite a bit. The over-the-top seeds that were planted for that game were sewn during Saints Row 2. But of all the games in the series, I actually became the most gruelingly addicted to the first one, back when it was just called Saints Row.
