Tips for playing the game "Saints Row" for the Xbox 360 include following the in-game visual markers to locate new missions, completing side quests to unlock bonuses and enhancements, and always stocking up on food to restore health. It is also helpful to recruit homies for harder missions.
"Saints Row" puts the player in the role of a newly initiated member of the gang known as the Third Street Saints as it attempts to put an end to the violent gang wars taking place in the fictional city of Stillwater. The game consists of completing different missions to win territory from the three rival gangs, Los Carnales, the Vice Kings, and the Westside Rollerz. Players find these missions by looking for the gang's icon on the minimap as well as floating in different areas of the game world. Bringing a full supply of level three healing items and as many companions as possible aids the player in completing each mission.
In addition to the main story missions, the game also features numerous side activities that reward the player with experience and cash. Cash allows the player to purchase new weapons and healing items. Completing all the levels of each side mission unlocks special abilities such as infinite ammo for a certain weapon class or special allies to call into battle.
