Saints Row 4

Saints Row 4 is exactly what you expect from a Saints Row game; satire, crude humor, over the top combat and a game that doesn't take itself too seriously. With the new addition of super powers the game is alot of fun to play but flying and jumping around so much kind of takes you out of Steelport and forces you to race around alot missing the ambience of the world. There's not much difference besides that from the previous installment, this almost feels like an excellent add-on to Saints Row The Third. For completionists there's plenty to keep you busy and more diversions this time around. Saints Row 4 is a solid game but nothing groundbreaking. I give it a B-.

Bad

Broken and repetitive.

I enjoyed the previous Saints games so I figured I'd give this one a go. The premise is in short you are in a virtual reality simulation created by aliens and you must get your team back and defeat the invaders. The game takes place in a simulated Steel Port, recycled from the third Saints game. The simulation is littered with diversions (little missions) of different categories, just like in previous games. Essentially the structure is this, you rescue a team mate through one of the Main missions, they give you 'side missions'. The problem is these side missions are literally just tasking you to complete the diversions I mentioned. This becomes extremely tedious, boring and predictable.

Another problem with this game is how buggy it is. Saints 4 pokes fun at it's previous installments bugs by pitting you against glitchy enemies in certain diversions. These are amusing the first time around but later become frustrating because there are still game breaking glitches in the game itself. Sound is abysmal and will cut in and out, sometimes turning off all together aside from your character screaming "YEAH" when he picks up a data cluster (which are littered throughout the city)

This game is literally busy work, which is sad because it could've been a decent title. Unless you can put up with the lackluster story, missions and game breaking bugs I suggest not picking this game up. If you think you can handle it then maybe there is some fun to be had with Saints 4.

Aliens, action, super powers, great voice acting, and a fantastic sense of humor. This is one of my favorite games of recent years.
