"When Saints Row shipped in 2006 on Xbox 360, it had the luxury of no competition. As the first Grand Theft Auto-style game of this generation, it got a lot of credit for outdoing parts of Rockstar's popular franchise with better visuals and controls. But with Saints Row 2 on track to ship after GTA4, the crew at developer Volition have gone from having no competition to facing possibly the biggest game of 2008. And now their challenge is to distinguish themselves as more than a good GTA clone." writes Matt Leone.
