Take a crime-riddled US city, add a handful of deadly gangs, a sprinkling of vehicles and a vast openworld environment, and what do you get?

No, not GTA but the second part of SaintsRow, a third-person sandbox extravaganza that has earned its right to be mentioned in the same sentence as Rockstar’s finest.Your aim is to wipe out a trio of gangs, ideally with as much crazy driving and oddball tangents as possible. From the getgo, where you can customise your character to the nth degree, to hidden missions and bonkers activities, this game never fails to surprise and entertain.
