I'm just thrilled at the variety of combat... one thing I love in a lot of games is grappling. It just adds a lot more to a game when you can decide "Know what, I'll just shove you down these stairs and fight your friends instead"

Its gotten to a point where ripping off GTA is a field of its own and not a criticism... I remember when SR1 came out they said "Its definitely one of the better GTA clones" it made me chuckle ^__^

There is also a zombie survival game in the game itself. Saints Row 2 is more then a "GTA clone" as it's obviously attempting to branch out and do things GTA didn't while still having that urban sandbox feel. Which is something I love... and especially customization options.

Couldn't agree more. It looks like three times the game SR1 was...

In a couple of actual releases, I can see the Saints Row franchise branch off like GTA did and actually become a competitor to the actual strong GTA line.

Is this a good thing? Yes. Why? I find myself enjoying Saints Row more, mainly for the customization, quirky humor (that seems to be lacking mainly [well, it's in there, but not as much as it was] in the latest GTA games) and other things. Sure it looks "cartoony" in comparison to GTA. But, it has many, many things GTA doesn't offer.

It also doesn't have that horribly bright spotlight GTA does, which is a blessing in itself... SR can get away with a lot that just won't fly with a GTA game these days (airplanes, chainsaws and alcohol induced super strength come to mind)

Well, it's suppose to be different and over the top.

As for other things, you can pick up to six different voices for your characters. Three male, Three female.

Each with minor adjustments to the script.

Although it'd been better with eight. They merged white and Asian. Apparently seeing as the new Asian gang is Japanese.

I'll be getting it on PS3, I don't like paying for similar services :P

I love the Co-op aspect, plus the sandbox feel is definitely a big plus. I can't wait to play this game, its gonna be freakin' awesome.

I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Bought Hells Highway today for PS3. Fallout3 might be the next game i purchase, but for the PC.

You know, I don't normally like these types of games (As Sabby should know, I've ranted on GTA3 enough times on IRC :P) but this looks...  Amusing enough for me to pick it up.

And it's the zombie survival horror game inside the game! Yep. A game inside a game.

Read the review and saw the video review on IGN. Definitely getting it.

Minigames involve streaking, driving an ATV quad in a fire proof suit while on fire and having to cause as much arson as possible, and parachuting so you can defaecate on key areas to destroy their property value.

Well, gang wars are no longer the best way to destroy Property Value.

Since I'm a proud owner of a 360 now please tell me more about this turf battle. What do I have to expect. I really have no idea what to imagine. All I saw for now is a 3rd Person Action Game.
