CVG writes: Saints Row did very well for THQ when it was released in 2006, which isn't surprising. It was the first urban free-roamer on the next-gen consoles, and despite how much it looked like a re-skinned GTA, we still lapped up its gang-banging, drive-bys and other gangster activities because, well, it looked a felt pretty good.
Now though, things are different. Back then nobody had seen Rockstar Top Trump cards, and today the fantastic looking Grand Theft Auto IV is at the forefront of everyone's mind. Is THQ worried? Not really, Saints Row 2 is pushing the one feature it has over GTA, and that's customisation.
