To be blunt, High Voltage did a very, very poor job of porting this game.
In five hours of play, my PS4 hard locked twice, lost all sound from the game three times (sound outside of the game worked fine, fixing the issue requires closing and relaunching the game), and even had a constant crackle sound when things were running smoothly. The audio processing is just atrocious - it's as if it can't handle multiple channels of effects simultaneously. This is on top of the fact that the frame rate isn't stable in the slightest and bounces all over the place, dipping way down during very hectic sequences. (Added: I have now completed the game 100% after 17 hours and averaged a system lock up once every 1.75 hours of play, lost sound entirely 12 times, and the audio crackle never changed.)
Beyond that, the game is the same as the original release a year and a half ago. If you've already played it on X360 or PS3, there's little reason to get it unless you want to see slightly tuned up graphics. However, any modern PC that's using a graphics card higher than a GTX 550 could display better graphics with better post-processing effects. This really just feels like a cash in where they shipped medium resolution textures on top of the base game for the new console generation, following a disturbing "remake"/"remaster" trend that is defining this console generation so far.
The game itself is fun as it was a year and a half ago but the porting problems and the fact that it's the same game as a year and a half ago means it doesn't warrant very high praise. The only upshot is getting Gat Out Of Hell with it but for those who played SR4 previously, that can be purchased separately for less.… Full Review »

This package includes the DLC- Gat Out Of Hell, which I reviewed standalone. And the monstrous Saints Row 4 itself. Re Elected is a major time trip that respects the time you spent in the Saints Row universe. With some more customizable options and some extra side missions- it really doesn't add to the 60 dollar package Deep Silver is charging. Bought alone- SR4 and GOOH are 40 bucks but bought in package they are 60 dollars. I just don't see the logic, in buying are Elected again or even once. If you want to play and haven't played SR4, check it out. But for the rest who have the game, there is no actual point in spending the money again for a dumbed down version. But you might wanna see my review of Gat Out Of Hell for that.… Full Review »

I Just played them for the first time, the graphis are extraordinary, awesome colors. They look so nice on the sony xperia tablet playing remotely. The gameplay is out of the charts too, the alien invasion is a very good topic for a game; and what Iike the most are the stunning women in sexy clothes and underwear. 10 out of 10, I am totally impressed.… Full Review »
