Saints Row is a great game! Its well worth every penny I spent on it. I had a blast ascending the ranks of the gangs and taking over territory after territory. The departure from real life and the joy of letting loose with an AK in a crowded street has its place in this complicated world; if only as a venting tool. There are four things make Saints Row a extra special game. Number one is entering the gang dynamic where you work along side other member to take out the rival members. The second would be the instant connection to your character and the other members of the Saints; you really want them to succeed. The third would be the plethora of different mission types nothing is this game ever gets old hat. And the forth and final most important thing is the intense and over the top humor that permeates ever inch of this game.
