Saint's Row

Grab a rocket launcher and call your crew because Saints Row is here and it's the surprise hit of the summer. What was once a lost and pathetic looking GTA clone has blossomed into a viciously intense and wickedly gruesome gang simulator that offers up plenty of thrills. The game contains plenty of hilarious and wildly entertaining missions, lots of bad language, and detailed graphics that, while not the best the 360 has to offer, are impressive nonetheless on an HDTV. And when you've grown tired of the robust single player campaign, hop online for a little gang warfare. You can even play co-op missions with a friend. It certainly isn't perfect, and if you've played the GTA games to death then Saints Row may have nothing for you. THQ and Volition have done an excellent job, and I recommend that you buy/rent this game ASAP.

    Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
