Open world crazy

I've only played Saints Row the Third before this, but I have to say this one is vastly superior. If you're in the mood for a bit of open-world insanity this is the game for you. Once you pick up the super-powers it's just plain crazy fun. It is not however a game to play with kids around or anyone easily offended because it does not tip-toe around the offensive but instead eats it up and subsequently vomits it back up like a bad egg salad sandwich.

Realization of the series

sreisnyjr | Oct. 28, 2014 | See all sreisnyjr's reviews »

Saints Row 4 achieves to do what the developers wanted to do with Saints Row 3, a game that is simply a blast to play and everything else be damned. Comepletely breaking off from its origional series roots, Saints Row 4 story is completly off the walls, leaving behind an effort to create an emotional story. Characters like Zinyak the Alien overlord, is a joy to listen to with fantastically written dialogue and great voice actors as well to accompany the good dialogue. Saints Row 4 introduces a variety of new gameplay elements which kick the gameplay up to 11 with superpowers, new guns llike the almighty Dubstep gun, upgrades and skins for all of your guns. The same issue of actual enemy variety remains the same, making killing them almost feel like a chore, however with the new elements added to gameplay, it allows for you to change things up and offers more variety. While some may have complained about the "reskinning" of the world from Saints Row 3, I myself have no problem with it due to how the gameplay is able to change up the navigation throughout the city so much, it almost feels like a different city entirely. Saints Row 4 utilizes the new powers to an intense advantage as shown with the new ammoun of content readily availible for you in the game, almost all of it is great fun, and you will have no problem blasting through all of the challenges they have in store. In the end Saints Row 4 signifies a parting for the series to clearly what seems to be a more passionate direction from the developers, a great buy if you are looking to have something to play thats just fun for a while at any price.

Silly as frick. The story isn't as consistently, jaw-droppingly inspired in its absurd escalations as SR3, but the game plays way better. As a counterpoint to GTA 5, which was the deathknell of the open-world crime game by way of being mired in its conventions and weirdly vicious approach to everything, SR4 is the deathknell by way of showing the absolute limits of what you can do with the formula. What I mean is, within the first hour you get superpowers that let you jump really high, run really fast, and basically fly. Combined, all three of these make stealing in a car, driving around and committing crimes seem antiquated and ridiculous. It's faster and more satisfying to super-run through cars, super jump across rooftops, and fly.

It is hard to talk about what happens in the game without giving away huge spoilers, but let's just say that its entire tone is a very knowing sense of the word "badical." It takes itself very seriously, even when the things it is taking seriously are how totally badass it was that you just climbed a really tall tower and got to the top, or how a confrontation with the alien overlord starts with you, the President of the United States, jumping out of the huge 8-barrel POTUS-branded AA cannon that is stationed on the White House lawn, and running at the crashed alien scout you just shot down, jumping at the front window and shooting it out with a pistol and immediately engaging in a Rowdy Roddy Piper/Keith David "They Live"-esque brawl with said overlord.

Anyone who takes it seriously and makes a character that looks remotely realistic is absolutely playing the game completely wrong and seems to have missed the pitch slider on the voices. The game is basically Your Fricking Ridiculous Power Fantasy: The Game, and is designed around both exceeding your wildest expectations while also subverting them. If there is one thing that the game is willing to critique, it is itself; its existence, your desire to play it, and the video game industry as a whole. It's never condescending when it does this, and comes across as the wet fever dream of a designer at the end of their life, transcribed via dying breaths, and developed as a celebratory eulogy to everything that once was. Its comments are made with a light touch, even when the game itself is so intent on destroying the world and starting over.

Great game.

Good Game But Too Similar To Saints Row: The Third

bigstubrown | Sept. 26, 2014 | See all bigstubrown's reviews »

I was lucky enough to get this during a sale and think I only paid around £7 for it. Now this looks very similar to Saints Row: The Third and plays the same but at the same time it is a better game that is very humorous. If your sick of GTA and want something that doesn't take itself too serious then this is for you. The weapon are very inventive, the characters are very well done, the voice acting is good plus very funny and the car / motorbike handling is very responsive. In all this is a very good, funny game that will not disappoint and fan of the past games and any newcomer to the series.

Major meh!

Shaide | Sept. 19, 2014 | See all Shaide's reviews »

I first started playing Saints Row from the first game, right through to this one. I have watched the series go from your standard Over the top Crime Spree free roam game, to just pure insanity. This chapter in the series is basically a parody of every popular game series. From GTA, to Call of Duty, to Mass Effect and Infamous(Yea, you have super powers in this one, because of course you do!)

The game does manage to elicit some chuckles on occasion, but more often than not all it manages to cause is plenty of eye rolling. the graphics though are nice, although the controls are annoying. Switching between superpowers and remembering which ones are used on which clusters is just annoying.

I did not enjoy this game at all, although others MIGHT. If you are a fan of SR3, then you may like this. It has the same level of insanity, but just ramped up to the next level.

Also, the music is great! The best feature in this game, is the licensed music that can be listened to on the radio which can be listened to in or out of the car, which is good, cause once you get super speed you might not be in a car as much.
