I've always thought it was mainly a driving game though and I certainly don't consider SR3 a driving game. You just happen to drive in it every now and then in SR3
I was like you at one point wondering if it was just a cheap knock off......shoot i called it that when i saw the trailers for the first two. Now i gotta tell you i realized i was DEAD wrong after i played Saints Row: The Third. The game tries is darnest to deviate, and it worked, its freakin hilarious.
Lets start with the time i started playing it. One day i saw it on sale for Steam at like 5 bucks, i bought it and after a couple weeks sitting on my computer i decided to play it cause i was MEGA bored that day and my internet was down [Otherwise i dont think i wouldve ever touched it]. I didnt even start playing Story first, cause i saw this funny mode called "WHORED MODE"
, i could tell where the funny reference came from "Gears of War, horde mode" *Cough Cough*, so i had an idea of what kinda mode it was gonna be. Ohh man was it freakin over the top funny, i dont think i ever laughed that much while playing a game ever. Then i lightened up and decided to play Story, and that was equally as goofy and funny.
In Summary: its more like a "Parody" of GTA than anything......a good one at that
