Lets get this out of the way first, Saints Row is the biggest rip off of all time. But, however, there are some very great qualities of it. First, you have a very detailed character creater similar to the one in Oblivion. The game has some true next gen graphics, the water simmers, everything has a nice shadow. The part that really gets you playing this game is that there is no poorly working aiming system. The game plays much like a FPS. Another great quality about this game is that there are no required save the hookers or racing missions. The entire story is all guns. There are side missions that are extremely fun and original like takeovers,drug trades, and insurance fraud. Others are quite boring like racing and driving around a man and his "escort". The game is quite legnthy and world you are in is full of secrets. There is also an online multiplayer that i have not yet played because I dont have live. This will definatly releave you as you impatiently wait for GTA 4. It is a must have for fans of GTA and open world games.
