Saints Row is no longer the GTA clone it once was. The original Saints Row (SR) was almost unashamed with how much it copied from GTA, even down to the tone of the game. It always had it’s wacky sense of humour though, mainly by continuing to build upon the crazier elements found in San Andreas. SR2 carried on along this path a bit more but then by the time Saints Row The Third came out, it was no longer just a GTA clone anymore. The series had developed a new personality, one that did not take itself seriously anymore and just went as big as possible, and as fun as possible. That ‘more fun’ aspect is developed on even more in the fourth installment of the series.
