Saints Row 4 continues the wacky tradition of the local street gang who has now risen to power as the king's of the U.S. But thing's go wrong quickly with an alien invasion! When I first read that I was shocked that the series had turned into this though I gave it it's fair due and had a blast doing it. However I give it a 5/10. Why? Read ON!
For starters if this is your first experience with saints row then your in for a treat however if this is your fourth then you still are but it'll take some getting used to due to you being used to killing gangs and not aliens. It delivers all the whacky phrases and quirks of each character and w/o giving too much away everybody lives up to their own character module. However at times the game tries to be serious but it's too funny so it's impossible to take it so.
The graphics? Well it's saints row not GTA so expect cartoonist graphics but my goodness the graphics haven't changed since SR2. Not terrible but still I expected more.
Weapons side quests and everything else including powers upgrades and brand new abilities as well as old and new characters provide the game with a fresh outlook and truly I enjoyed it.....but as I said before I have my reasons for despising this game.
If this problem I'm about to get into didn't persist only the fact that nothing is REALLY fresh would keep me from giving it a 10. It's that good. But the experience of SR4 is ruined and I do mean RUINED by the constant annoyance of freezing to the point I found myself saving after every little thing because of the constant freezing. It froze up so badly on 1 mission that I was scared I wouldn't complete the game after 20+ hours put into it. I got through it but the experience of having to find my own way around problems I should never have to deal with in a game made me just get to the end and send it on back to GameFly.
I loved this game I really did but the freezing ruined the fun of what was otherwise an awesome game.
