- Summary: A genius in entertainment and mayhem, the man-cat Professor Genki has put together the most watched game show event on TV, Genkibowl VII. But every game show needs a star contestant, and Professor Genki has chosen the leader of the Saints. With the Saints' reputation for excessive murder and carnage Steelport's own Zach and Bobby will give the play-by-play commentary with their newest colleague, Tammy Tolliver.… Expand
Pretty short lived expansion, and for those who didn't get the seasons pack, I don't know if I would deem this worthy of the $7 price tag. 8 missions in all in 4 different types, a couple vehicles, and a couple homies... No story other than announcers, and doesn't really tie into the Saints story well, feels utterly slapped on.… Expand
Overhyped, and under-performing. To call this a 'mission pack' is pretty dishonest-- it would be more accurate to call it an 'activity pack'. Several of the regular activities have been genki-fied, which would be nice, if they'd put nearly the kind of effort into these DLC activities that they did into the activities included in the base game.
The biggest let-down was "Apocalypse Genki", the jungle-themed S.E.R.C. successor. It seems like so much time and effort for only two short levels. To compare, the original S.E.R.C. has six instances. The only non-repackaged activity was Sad Panda Skydiving, and to be honest, it doesn't seem very well thought through. The mascots you're supposed to kill with a melee weapon tend to run into the trigger effect of over-sensitive cannons that will shoot you into the sky if you get too close, balloons aren't that useful and the sum total just isn't that much fun. And that's from someone who's already gotten all but one of the Sad Panda achievements in just three runs. Even when I'm doing great at it, it's just not something I'd prefer to do.
All in all I'm not feeling great about having bought the season pass, and I won't be pre-ordering anything from Volition or THQ anytime soon based on the hype to actual product ratio.… Expand
