    A mix of wholesome friendship, murder and mayhem like no other, Saints Row is a riotous blast that entertains for hours on end.

    Saints Row is a quite cool game, throwing players into a sandbox while giving you cars and guns to start messing around. There is only pure fun here, perfect for passing the time, looking for some depth of play and plot? Sorry, wrong game. Although this reboot removed the superpowers, it seems to want to take the game back to before it was confused by the demons of hell, the Matrix, aliens, and much other chaos. But when people find that these saints do not rely on superpowers to make trouble, and start to beat people with fists and iron bars, will they find them not interesting enough again?

    Saints Row is not really what we can call a total reboot of the saga, but rather a soft-reboot: it is very similar to Saints Row The Third which, even if appreciated, is nonetheless ten years old. In fact, this is felt and this new adventure is still struggling to impose itself through its technique, its gameplay or its creativity which remain anchored in a certain immobility despite some novelties: it is however a game of effective action that never takes itself seriously, rather funny and with damn generous content, which we can never blame him for. Volition finally delivers Saints Row 3 with far-west sauce, which remains appreciable without breaking three pieces of dough for a gunslinger.

    Every time Saints Row does something that reminds me how much I love the series, it follows it up with an issue that makes me frustrated with it. As much as I enjoy the gameplay and getting lost in Santo Ileso, the structural problems, both in open world game design and under the hood, make this a tough one to stick with. There are highlights, like losing track of time in how much fun a Saints Row game can be, but it’s lost under a pile of bugs and glitches.

    The knockabout glee of classic Saints Row ultraviolence is here, but held back a little by new-found restraint.

    That’s not to say Saints Row doesn’t have redeeming qualities, but its memorable moments are so few and far between. It delivers what is expected from a typical action sandbox game, but only at the bare minimum. Most of what Saints Row has to offer has already been done better elsewhere. If you’re looking for an open-world game with silly fun and over-the-top action, then maybe it's worth taking a trip to Santo Ileso. Unfortunately for most, this reboot struggles to provide anything unique that makes it stand out from the crowd of similar games.

    Volition miscalculated. They interpreted that ridding Saints Row of its over-the-top nature, leaving behind only the series' essence was the right way to get to a triumphant new beginning. But in a post-GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 world, they found out that Saints Row's essence, without its excesses, simply doesn't cut it anymore.

    For me personally, the game is good, it resembles the good old sr with a bit of sr2 vibe, for me it is a step in the right direction.

    The best game of the year or even five years.
    Or what do you compare it to?
    Failed "failed" cyberpunk?
    Or with classic GTA remasters?

    Before that, the remastered game did not reach the level of Mafia 1, but it did not try.
    And after such games, you look at a game like Mafia 3 with different eyes.

    But it is better to compare it with Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2, especially with Watch Dogs Legion, where more and more game mechanics, features and details were cut out with each part.
    Here even cars are not bricks on wheels and not pinned in the middle on a pin.

    Or you can compare it to Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3, although they have nothing to do with it. But do you understand what I mean?

    And we don't have a big list of such games:
    Mafia
    Mafia (restart).
    Watch Dogs
    Sleeping dogs
    GTA

    Maybe a couple more of these games.

    Did you expect more from her?
    The GTA level can only be reached by GTA and then, the big question is whether she will be able to do it with the 6th part. (and will she come out at all?)

    Definitely worth taking, that's just confused by the price, this game is clearly not at the level of $ 60, but thank you for not $ 70

    Only one thing I ask the developers, it's enough to shove such a style everywhere, it's not Fortnite enough, do normal graphics, from which it does not dazzle in the eyes.

    Bugs arent that bad. I get the criticism. This game is rough around the edges. And needs improvement.
    But subject matter is interesting. Customization is decent. Shooting and driving which us 90 percent of the game is decent. Itd like Fortnite

    I mean people play thhose games lovingly and then **** on this game?! I dont get it.

    And the woke stuff that peiole phobia over usnt really there. All you get is q buzz cut indian woman with high sjw vibes that kill people. None of it makes sense. But then again when did it ever. None of the saints row games stories are cohesive or interesting. Yes this one might be slightly less interesting. But this wont make the earlier saints row gamed likr last of us.

    Gimme a break. This game isnt great. But doesnt deserve this much hate

You ignored fan feedback for years telling you all exactly what we wanted. Then you diss the fans on twitter calling us haters for not liking whatever this was. Haters gonna hate well like MJ we took it personally. Now the game is a buggy glitchy unplayable mess that appeals to no one and you all have yourselves to blame. Haters gonna hate right...Well haters gonna rate too. Collapse Expand
