The new Saints Row game is coming up on August 23, 2022. and the Internet has gone absolutely mad about it in anticipation of the release. While originally, Saints Row was looked upon as a Grand Theft Auto clone in the first two games, it took a wild turn in Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV which definitely differentiated it from GTA in every possible way and the only thing they share is that the game setting is in an open-world.

One of the things that strongly differentiates modern Saints Row titles from GTA is the character customization, which seems to be improving with every new title. But, is it actually good? Prima Games has the answer below.
