I know GTA has those "fantasy" moments, but Saints Row has a very sarcastic and non-serious story line. And the graphic style doesn't help it at all on top of that.
That's exactly how its supposed to be.
Its like GTA before it went next gen, which is why that non-serious, sarcastic, blatant pee taking attitude resonates with so many.
GTAIV was one of the most disappointing GTA games for me as it became one of those games that was scared to take the mick out of itself.
Niko Belic is also one of the least likeable characters I've ever played as in a recent GTA game.
He's lame, fat, old and pretty much soulless. He gets angry sometimes, but other than that, he's a pretty dead character.
