Vehicles can be visually customized as well as performance tuned.
Cribs and even gangs all have an amazing degree of detailed customization options.

Better than GTA?Obsessor | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all Obsessor's reviews »
It's hard to tell. Depends on ones taste. But if you desire full customization, from your character face and musculature, through clothes to pimping your cars(and tuning them too!). If you want fun game, action packed environment, freedom to go where you please and do what you want, having your own houses, etc. - stop reading now and get the game!
Graphics may be a bit off by today's standards. For me it's still very nice, flashy and colorful enough not to turn away with disgust. Music that's playing in the radio - proper in style with this crazy game. Characters are professionaly made and voiced. Plot has some nice twists, keeps you on edge wanting to see more. I enjoyed this game, if you like things like GTA, you will too. And about my question, is it better than GTA? Can't really decide. Play and see for yourself.
The hilarious GTA little brother.MafuMafu | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all MafuMafu's reviews »
At first, this game felt like a GTA rip-off. But, Volition took everything that made Vice City and San Andreas so good and put it together. It's fun, it's ridiculous, it's hilarious and is one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had. My great and infinite love for the Saints Row series started right here and continued through The Third and Saints Row IV. I enjoyed every single one of them and replayed them a lot of times. Do you want a completely serious game? Well, perhaps this one might not be your type. Do you want to laugh non-stop? Don't wait any longer and start spending your money on this unique gaming experience.
NOTE: This game has a couple of glitches and bugs. But, don't worry. It won't ruin your experience.
