    The consistent thrill of Saints Row IV is how it constantly, eagerly, happily, accommodatingly asks you “Hey, how do you want to break the game now?” And for a game so colossal, so occasionally dumb, so often colossally sharks-with-laser-beams-on-their-heads-that-can-also-breathe-fire-and-fly-and-turn-invisible-and-you-can-even-ride-them dumb, what an incredibly smart thing to do with an open world, a franchise, and a story.

    Volition it seems has made a new standard in over the top…no really I don’t think you understand… they went over the top before. Now they had to raise the bar in standards as well, just so they could go over the top of that.

    A combination of sublime and ridiculous, Saints Row IV is outlandish fun. [Nov 2013, p.97]

    Overall Saints Row IV is a marvellously enjoyable game, while still suffering from a few of the complaints that the series has always had. The main quests are great, and although the side missions are not painful to play, they don’t pack the same punch. If you played and enjoyed Saints Row The Third, then picking up this sequel is a must. Equally if you’re looking for a game that lets you act like a badass with special powers, this might be a better superhero game than many others that are actually billed as such.

    Saints Row IV doesn't excel in terms of gameplay, but it hits a home run in terms of fun and laughter. The plot is both absurd and beautiful and the activities are so varied that one can easily forgive its faults. If you want a sandbox and you don't take yourself too seriously, Saints Row IV is a game you don't want to miss.

    We think there's a story in there somewhere. Saints Row IV is weird. Too weird, in fact. And we love it for that exact reason.

    The Saints Row saga can still be considered the most debauched franchise that lovers of free roamers could dream of. It has some good new ideas and the same shortcomings of the previous game, but it's a funny game nonetheless.

It is completely different from all of the ones before it, and it really shares little with the previous games in the series. If you didn't like SR 3 due to the sci-fi and super hero aspects, you might hate this game... a lot. If you're looking for something in the realistic criminal vein (ala Grand Theft Auto), you might hate this game.

    The changes here are immense. It's like being in a mish-mash of every science fiction movie out there, with lots of elements/ideas coming straight from the Matrix.

    Before you buy, check out some of the YouTube gameplay videos and make sure you're not going to hate it. If you go into this with the wrong expectations, you're going to be very disappointed.

This game is hilarious, fun and action packed. If you liked SR the 3rd you will love SR4. Aside the mighty superpowers, the story is so enjoyable! Funny jokes about sci-fi movies and games like Mass Effect, The Matrix and even Demolition Man (just look near your spaceship toilet, you'll find 3 shells) are everywhere!
    In these days where games are only eye-candy graphics and a dull plot, SR4 is a welcomed surprise!

    +The Humour is great
    +Ditto for story
    +Very Fun Gameplay
    +All characters are likeable and funny
    Cons
    -Very similar to Saints Row 3, with the city being the same, and mechanics and characters are very similar
    -With the exception of the tank, all vehicles are practically useless. You don't need cars, Just run around the place.

    For Only $15 on steam, this is a great open world game to pick up and play, for 20 mins to 2 hours. I Recommend it.

They built this game directly off of Saints Row 3, it was originally being created as DLC, and I got 100% before I hit 40 hours of play, and I afk a lot. Thats less than half the time I put into SR3, and they didnt even have to put half as much work into development. Should have been much cheaper and called Saints Row 3.5. Expand
