The official description of the rating reveals that the game will feature excessive expression of violence, blood, crime and crime. On top of this, it allows players to attack and loot pedestrians and even has missions where players conduct insurance frauds.

Furthermore, the description reveals that Saints Row is bursting with excessive vulgarity and profanity during the dialogue between characters. It also has scenes that show direct drug use and alcohol drinking in a bar. 

Oh, and there's a mention of "obscure parts" during character customisation but the translation wasn't quite right on that one so we don't really know what exactly this refers to.
