Volition’s gamble to reset and reground Saints Row pays off generously. A visual delight, with plenty of gameplay mechanics to keep players goofing off for days, and the Santo Ileso setting is one of the best in video game history. Sure, the shooting gets redundant after a while, but with so much to see and do you can go hours in between gun battles. Saints Row manages retain what players loved while feeling fresh and new. Other reboots, take note – this is how you do it.
In many ways, Saints Row is a game that looks back on its past with reverence, trying to keep much of what worked in the past while updating it for a new generation of players (and consoles). It manages to do it with many more hits than mistakes, but it's still a game that shouldn't please any player. If you are a fan of its tone and proposal, it is undeniable that there are dozens of hours of fun here.
Muy buena historia. Buena jugabilidad. A septiembre del 2023 sigue teniendo algunos bugs, pero ninguno que interrumpa. Poco valorado. Merece una segunda oportunidad. Le dí 10 para subir su calificación, aunque entre los bugs y un par más de detalles en realidad le doy un 8.
il gioco era fantastico per me era divertente e anche molto bello il gameplay questo è il mio gioco di saints row pero comunque era molto divertente la maggiorpante dei bug che ho trovato erano divertenti solo uno non era divertente pero comunque gli do un 10
While much of this review may seem negative, there’s a lot to like about Saints Row. Its cast quickly grows on you, it has some entertaining set-pieces, and there’s explosive fun around every corner. Customisation is also a high-point: if you like creating zany characters, you’ll be in your element. But while in many ways this this the best Saints Row game to date, there are also multiple design decisions that pull it down. For a game all about building a crime syndicate, the fact that engaging in such activities feels so optional on the main path is a crime itself. It also won’t come as much surprise to Saints Row fans that this is just as scrappy as ever before. Still, it’s ridiculously enjoyable nonetheless.
Ultimately, Saints Row may not be the grand return to the franchise that fans were hoping for, but that doesn't mean it's not worth giving a look. Despite a poorly-paced story with average characters, it still has a ton of content and a sandbox that is ripe for hours of co-op fun. Even if you're playing solo, building a criminal empire is empowering and elevates Saints Row beyond being yet another open-world crime game. If it didn't take some steps back or feel buggy and dated, this game would get a more glowing recommendation, but unfortunately, it doesn't hit all of its marks.
Saints Row could be something special. It really could, but Volition still doesn't know how to treat this franchise, placing it somewhere between Grand Theft Auto and Just Cause, never managing to leave its own fingerprints on the open worlds it creates. The Saints Row reboot is so similar to the original franchise in tone, gameplay and content that it leaves you wondering why it was even necessary to hit the reset button. There is fun to be had, but it's hidden behind bugs, repetitive missions and a detached story that doesn't know whether it wants to be a caricature of other plots or a candid tale about a group of friends involved in the criminal world.
If you find yourself in the right frame of mind, the unhinged nature of Saints Row can be cathartic, particularly if you find yourself in a good series of missions where the writing and humour aren’t too manic, and the action isn't too humdrum. In the end, Saints Row succeeds in recalling and refreshing the affable personality of the dormant series, but this reboot is simply a return, not an evolution.
Este juego no me parece tan malo como afirman algunos, pero puedo llegar a entender el porqué se llevó tanto hate. Para empezar, este reboot es menos transgresor, original y divertido que las anteriores entregas, eso es cierto. Los personajes principales al principio del juego son un poco odiosos y tienen conversaciones un tanto extrañas. El desarrollo de la historia también es mucho más lenta y todo cuesta mucho dinero al principio para nuestro protagonista. Pero, una vez que avanzas en la historia, el juego mejora y se te ofrecen misiones y opciones de personalización **** NPCs son bastante graciosos e impredecibles, y el juego a día de hoy, no está tan roto como en el día de lanzamiento. Con lo cual, sólo recomiendo probar el juego si está a un precio muy reducido. Es una pena que la desarrolladora (Volition Studios) se fuese a la bancarrota con este videojuego, eso sí.
Got this game off the PS free lineup last month. Since getting the physical copy, I started a new GG so I felt it’s time to rate it again. I am not a huge fan of the Saints Row series. Played a little bit of Saints Row The Third and enjoyed it. Beat Saints Row 4 and hated it. After hearing all the bad news around this entry, I didn’t know what to expect. Glad to say I was pleasantly surprised!
This game is genuinely not bad! The gameplay is literally: Go here! Shoot this! Steal this! I can understand why people criticize that part of the game. I personally think it’s fun. All Saints Row has ever been to me is exactly that. Go here! Shoot this! Steal this! As someone who’s not a fan maybe I wouldn’t understand it.
The story is fine. It doesn’t really go anywhere and the ending is predictable. That being said, the main cast of characters are so interesting to me that it makes up for it. Yeah, they say some cringy things here and there. Overall they’re good enough characters for me to be upset that there is no sequel. Once the story gets going (towards the end) it’s a really solid revenge tale. I think if they fleshed out the story and made it longer (maybe adding a few different types of missions here and there), it would’ve been received a lot better.
Lastly, the side missions are fun enough to keep me entertained. I never delved to much into these, but the ones I did were pretty fun! Overall, Saints Row is the most over hated game of the 2020s so far…
Saints row, The reboot The franchise never needed. Players will start out by creating their own character with a moderate selection of options however with the somewhat limited options at hand the characters created are surprisingly diverse from one another. At first it gave off a promising beginning but shortly after introduces us to the cringeworthy lineup of main characters Eli, Kevin and Neenah. If it was a sitcom these characters would play their part but in Saints Row They most certainly do not With every waking moment spend around them players would likely spend it in their heads wishing Johnny Gat Or Shaundi Or Pearce Washington would return but to no avail they are stuck with these qwerky Teenagers as.. gangsters? It doesn't stop there. Later on Players Will break the Nahualli (A criminal who was arrested during the very first mission) out of prison to request his assistance for a train robbery. During His time With the Saints He Grows Quite fond of them in spite of first impressions. However he attempts to kill the boss in the big twist of the game. He's gone from Ally to Antagonist and his reasoning? He's jeleous of the boss and wants everything they have. Players will find a big variety in Customisation options but it order to unlock them the player must indure missions of the "Ventures" they can purchase. These venture missions are long winded and boring and take much longer than they should it's a grind of unwilling proportions. And finally in terms of the gameplay it has a vivid sense of its predecessors but in turn that makes it smooth, enjoyable and simple. Overall Saints Row is a reboot **** franchise that was once about gang warfare but now in its story and characters screams nothing of the sort. It's a bundle of poorly produced Characters, Unpleasant Writing and Side Missions which could bore a hole in titanium with the only enjoyable parts being in the things left untouched.
Joguei os saints row passados e sinto que o game sempre foi isso, zueira e coisas sem noção, isso não quer dizer que se deve deixar de lado os problemas do game e o estado inacabado em que ele se encontra, também encontrei uns bugs que atrapalham em alguns momentos de jogatina que me incomodaram mas dei uma chance para o game, acho improvável que eu volte para ele em algum momento.
