GamesRadar: Saints Row 2 Review

GamesRadar writes: "We don't get the recent GTA IV backlash. At all. GTA IV was amazing. Deep down, everyone knows it. Though even we'd admit that once you'd plowed through Niko's story, what remained was hardly the greatest example of raucous sandbox fun...

So they set out to make that exact game – and, it has to be said, have succeeded."
