This game is easily 1 star. Pixelated graphics & choppy gameplay are the two phrases that accurately describe this game. I picked this up to kill some time before GTA came out and realized I didn't even want to waste anymore time playing it.

This was my very first time playing Saints Row. The only thing good about this game is the in game music. The graphics are terrible. Anything 2 feet past your character looks like a blurred mess which made your in game immersion terrible. But the frames per second is what makes the game almost unplayable. Any action on the screen and your fps dips to 10-15.
This game could have been, SHOULD HAVE BEEN, better. Its the same map as the third, same vehicles as the third. Except now there are aliens, YAY! right? Not so much! The joy and need to drive around are all but gone now that you can "leap buildings in a single bound" with your new alien induced super powers. The mini inbetween filler games are in...WAIT FOR IT...16 BIT! Yes, the same 16-bit technology discovered in the 70's when pong came out. This game feels rushed, looks rushed, and is obviously rushed. If you have never played any Saints Row game before. This may be somewhat enjoyable. But, for those who have played them before.......be prepared to be left wondering...WHY....HUH?.....REALLY?!!
