Yes some missions start to get repetitive BUT it's right as they start to feel that way that you are done with them and get awesome rewards from them. It will be tough playing GTAV without being able to use my super powers like SR4!! I would recommend this game to anyone who likes to just have fun with a game because this one is an absolute blast! Rent or buy, enjoy!
Great game, but overly familiar

Graphics- Not bad but not great by any means. 6.5/10
Sound- Descent, voice over is done well and I love how you can listen to music through out the game even when not in a car. 8/10
Controls- aside from the new super powers the same as 2 and 3, PS. they could have used the control scheme for the powers a little better. 7/10
Gameplay, Very fun and at times just repetitive and annoying. 7/10
Story, IMO the best part about the game without spoiling it you're the President and aliens invade Earth you go in a simulator and kick some outer space booty in Steel Port. 8.5/10
Replay value- Just not here once you beat the game and the side missions there is nothing left to do until the DLC's come out. 7/10
If you're reading this before GTA 5 comes out then I would RENT it not buy it unless you love the series because it will hold you over until GTA 5 comes out, if it's past September 17th and you're reading this go BUY GTA 5 and wait until this is available in your Q to rent and I wouldn't be in such a hurry to play unless you're a trophy hunter like myself and the Platinum is calling you!!!
FINAL WORD a rental only I gave it a 8/10 but I could see it getting a 7/10!!
Was super skeptical but OMG its soooo ADDICTING

First, Saints Row 1 was terrible, but then 2 came along, it was different, kidna fun, but honestly after an hour... meh. Then 3 came and hey, alright, I can finish this one, this is fun, a but funny, not amazing, but hey, I'm having a good time. Then here we are at 4 and well, it's more like the same experience as 2. There's just nothing good about it.
Is it fun? Yeah... but not really. Graphics are bad, not funny, controls are... ok, definitely works well. But there's just nothing here you haven't seen before, in 3, or especially in other games, and it honestly works better there.
It's just not funny. Not attention grabbing. Story is horrid. Just an add-on to 3 that's not any good but gets credit because of the name... which really shouldn't be worth much of anything.
Never thought I'd want Nolan North to shut up so badly. Deadpool all over again.

No noteworthy enhancement from the last game!

Maybe my rating has to do with the fact that I played GTA 5 for a week before I got this from GF. From the first opening scene, I was like YUCK from looking at the graphics alone. The graphics looks disgusting and it looks like it could be a PS2 game easily. Again like I said I banked in quite a few hours of GTA 5 gameplay right before playing this so my eyes were probably accustomed to the beautiful graphics of GTA.
The only cool thing is the fact that you have superpowers and once you get the powers you don't need any other mode of transportation. So no need to drive the ugly looking cars no more. But then again, that gets boring pretty easily. The cars on the streets become pointless as you can sprint faster than all of them.
I didn't find it all that appealing as I couldn't even finish the main story. I had to ship it back only after a few hours of gameplay. I guess it's worth a rent if you really want to play it.
