Saints Row 2
Set years after the original, the player finds himself in a Stilwater both familiar and strange and challenged with bringing the Saints back as the rightful kings of Stilwater and bringing vengeance to those who wronged him.
Saints Row: The Third
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you.
Saints Row IV: Game of the Century Edition
The epic conclusion to the game that changed all the rules!

With homies new and old by your side, and an arsenal of superpowers and strange weapons, you must save the world in the wildest open world game ever!
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell

Play as either Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington as you tear apart Hell in a quest to save the leader of the Saints’ soul. Historical icons, old friends, older enemies, a talking gun, a full length musical number, and a whole lot of other shenanigans all await you in the open world standalone expansion playground that is Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell.

The Saints Row series is a welcome change of pace to the usual front runners of the sandbox genre, a series of games that, fortunately, doesn't try to take itself so seriously. By all means there's a time for a more serious game, but sometimes it's far easier to relax and unwind to something that isn't trying to tie you into a detailed, convoluted, or otherwise just heavy plot. Saints Row advertises itself as a series where you get to be who you want and that is a statement that predominantly holds true. Customisation is very high throughout the series, whether it be appearance, clothing, vehicles, your gang itself, character progression, weaponry or even just simply how you approach a situation. Even main missions offer alternative options be it a choice between hitting one location or another or just making your way through the open world in whatever fashion you fancy to complete objectives. The one exception to the diversity is the fact that you're shoe-horned into being the Saints' leader, but really, this encourages free play rather than deterring.. until you get caught in cutscenes where you have no say at all in the matter. It's entirely forgivable, but it does remove some of that sense of freedom. The games are always kept diverse with a mixture of insane plot missions, quirky and often humorous side missions and, of course, the free reign to do practically whatever you want: streak across the city naked, make enemies with both the military and another gang simultaneously and lead them towards each other, leap into some of the smaller side missions whether it be destroying things in a near indestructible tank or simply flinging yourself at vehicles for insurance money. It's a zany mixture with a high replay value, on top of the already expansive open worlds each game holds for the player to explore - just try to find all the collectibles. The humour of the games is perhaps not suited to the more prudish, but, if you're willing to let yourself go and get into it. It works remarkably well and makes running through the city a blast whether you're still establishing your gang earlier in the series or lording over the nation as president (while wielding phallic weaponry, of course). Of course, the game only gets as crude as you want it to be. Don't like the streaking options or said 'inappropriate' weaponry? Don't play that way. The freedom is immense. The graphics, while not the best around even for the release dates, still look great, with satisfying explosions, very detailed vehicles and environments and some well designed characters. That said, an open world can only get so detaled before it hits a compromise, and the Saints Row series all perform admirably even on older machines. I've run the games on parts out-dated by several years as well as current day specs. The drawbacks of the series are few, and predominantly fall on the fact that some main missions are just not that entertaining be it fighting a constant wave of duplicate enemies while waiting on an NPC, or some other repetitive fair, but this is easily offset by all of the other incredibly diverse missions the games put forward (a toilet with a gun in cyberspace, anyone?). Additionally, some people may simply feel offended by the humour or the complete lack of restraint with crude gestures, coarse language and all the other modesties the series casts away. To top it all off, getting three games in the series for this price is a bargain in its own right with the hours you'll get out of it, and when it hits a sale you've practically struck gold. In a market saturated by numerous open world titles that take themselves way too seriously, Saints Row truly is a welcome addition. By no means would I put down any of the other titles or developers, but sometimes, it's a bit of humour that you need, and an experience that truly feels free, and constantly throws new and unexpected things at you. Looking for a truly free open world game? Don't feel like taking the evening seriously? Looking for some zany diversity? Saints Row is the series for you.
