Saints Row IV
Besides The Mercy Killing It Is Very Fun.Buy This Game And Any Saints Row.I Highly Recommend This Game.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE FREAKING GAME THAT I HAVE!!! The Gameplay is GREAT, And it is WAY more than just a sr3 dlc. BUY IT!!!!!
A Little to Crazy
When the first Saints Row came out, it wasn't that good because there were many graphical and audio issues, but Volition quickly made up for it with the release of Saints Row 2 three years later. That game was INCREDIBLE, with very good graphics and the audio lip sync was spot-on. Then when Saints Row: The Third came out, it was better than the first two combined, with high definition graphics and lip-sync like real-life, and many more customization choices. But Deep Silver screwed-up BIG-TIME when they released Saints Row IV. It will be easier to explain it to you in pros/cons perspective.
More customization choices
Aliens, really, that what really is screwed-up about this game.
This game is highly underrated, when people say things like "Saints Row iv is going to be stupid" or "Saints Row iv is going to be too silly" , don't listen too them. if they think this one is silly, take a look at the older grand theft auto to see what they have been playing. Saints row iv is a must have for all gamers.
love this game so much its awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you can so much you have so much this game is kick butt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best game in the world!! Period
When I got this game I thought it would be ridiculous, aliens really. But it was good, you can now have super speed and super jump powers. You also can kill people with super power melee. Also the plot is very intriguing, but I cant tell you why, but ill give you a clue: POTUS.
Too familiar, too easy, and too monotonous
Saints Row: The Third was a fantastic Saints Row outing by Volition. It was entertaining, hilarious, and offered an extensive amount of content, not to mention Volition's constant stream of DLC for the game. Saints Row IV arrives from Deep Silver and I'm sorry to say that it simply isn't as good as its predecessors. This time around, you play as the President of the United States of America and for some ridiculous reason, the appropriately named gang called the Saints is in control of all government operations. Everything is roses and gumdrops until aliens, led by an alpha one named Zinyak, They attack the White House, or the equivalent of it (filled with tigers, strippers, and the like. You know, just like the White House) and take over. Zinyak then sends you to a virtual world of Steelport, graced by drab browns and occasional reds, blues, pinks, and purples. On that tangent, I might as well start off by discussing graphics. The graphics, as opposed to Saints Row: The Third's colorful and vibrant world, are quite boring, to say the least. The world never changes from day to night, but instead is covered constantly by brown clouds. Red is used to designate the aliens' ownership of something. So stores, bridges, and other structures are all red and will continue to remain red throughout the game. The water is disgusting to look at, as it is covered with red panels, to show that you are clearly in a virtual world of Steelport. Other than this, everything remains the same, including character models, buildings, enemies, gangs, etc. It's clear that Deep Silver did not want to stray to much from its predecessor. However, given its virtual world, Deep Silver added a level of comedy by making citizens glitch out occasionally, as well as the sides of buildings and vehicles. It by no means looks better than its predecessor, but it does not look worse. It's simply the same world with a different palette. On the note of presentation, I suffered from several freezes, which never occurred during this game's predecessor. Saints Row IV also offers the same gunplay and controls. You use the same buttons to jump, shoot, reload, taunt, etc. However, because you are in a virtual world and nothing has to make sense, you now wield superpowers. Initially, I thought it was a neat and cool gimmick, but it soon wore on me and, much like the graphics, took away from the experience. I will say, however, that they control just fine, much like the shooting. You gradually gain more powers, including the powers to shoot ice and fire out of your hand and eventually you can use the Force (a.k.a use telekenisis) to make items levitate and then throw them at enemies. You can then upgrade by monotonously collecting digital cubes. For example, you can increase the radius of the blast of ice you emit by obtaining a specific number of these cubes, which, as said, are more of a chore to increase your power than a motivation to continue playing. New weapons are also added, including sci-fi weapons: guns that shoot lasers. Also, there is what is called the Dubstep Gun. It emits these blasts that, when shot in any direction, make whatever you're aiming at dance. It's funny the first time you shoot it every time you boot the game up, but afterwards it becomes less of a practical weapon. Aside from this, you also gain the ability to jump very high and then glide for extensive periods of time (if upgraded), which defeats the point of using vehicles, an important part of the last game, also defeating the purpose of using garages used for editing favored vehicles. The worst thing about these added superpowers is that it makes the game infinitely easier. No challenge is seen here whatsoever. So don't purchase this game thinking you'll be satisfied by playing in the way of challenge. I died twice the entire time and the deaths were because of a huge amount of enemies respawning constantly. While the powers added a level of variety and provided for some entertaining mischief, it ended up being just another aspect of gameplay and nothing special, making the game easier. More importantly, it felt all too familiar, as I constantly thought of superhero property-based games I've played in the past, including Spider-Man 2 and the 2008 Hulk game. It felt like a culmination of them, but more fleshed out, which is a good thing, but it still obviously borrows from other games. Additionally, I found the missions to be incredibly repetitive. Either I found myself killing waves of enemies or hacking different stores most of the time. There was very little variety and thus became more of a chore. The narrative continued to entertain, however, as references were made to "The Matrix" trilogy, the "Mass Effect" trilogy, and other sic-fi and media references. They are funny, but slightly overdone. Radio stations are also still in this game; none of which offer music that I like, although they often contain comedic tongue-in-cheek dialogue. Saints Row IV does offer an extensive amount of customization, however. You can still tailor cars (that you'll probably never use) as you see fit, as well as dress your President up the way you want and also make your President look exactly like you want him to look, with a variety of skin colors, hair styles, and many other features. I wasn't surprised, however, as it was a small step up from Saints Row: The Third's customization options. I've come down quite hard on Saints Row IV, but it is still a fun and accessible experience. You can immediately cause mischief and in bizarre ways. Side quests will reward you greatly (with different powers and weapons) and shooting and using superpowers is very satisfying and works like a charm. The upgrade options are extensive and you can customize your character exactly as you see fit. However, the drab art style often detracts from the experience, as well as occasional bugs. The game is also incredibly easy offering no challenge and I felt that it was a culmination of several superhero games. I'm afraid I can't recommend the game due to all these qualms. However, I instead suggest that you buy Saints Row: The Third, despite the fact that it's two years-old. It is an all-around better experience, and better yet, more of an original and challenging one.
A MUST BUY
Amazing game!!! A must buy for any gamer who loves shooters, even COD/Battlefield fans can very easily get into this game!!! Very humorous and great gameplay!!!
Pretty good game!
I enjoyed playing it a lot, a very humorous game that makes you laugh a lot with it's ridiculousness. After the Story is beaten there is not much more to do though.
This game is so great. The only problem is the main story seemed kinda short. Other than, that i loved the game. It offered something new to sandbox games.
