I read the perfect review/comparison of SR and GTA on this site, explaining how both games complement each other. this is true
Saints row isnt a rip off IMO, its just another sandbox game. i think its a really good start to the series. are you saying any game where you are a crimanal in a open world that can shoot peds and jack cars will be a gta clone/rip off? no they wont be. GTA sparked a new type of game called sandbox games. its just like back when DOOM came out, people said any other fps that wasnt doom was a doom clone, years later the fps game was born basicly... i see this for Sandbox games
Ok, let me quote the Saint's Row trailer:
"If the Grand Theft Auto series lit a fire under the a** of the action genre, then Saint's Row burns the whole damn house."
They were obviously aiming for a blatant GTA rip-off. Or, how would you like it better-phrased? Action Genre rip-off?
