    Aside from a less than stellar control system for combat, there’s very little negative to be said about Saints Row IV: Re-Elected. You get a tonne of content that will keep you occupied for a very long time. It’s a really good port of the game and does it justice. This is the sort of game that reminds you that even though it might not have the grunt of its competition, the Switch is a very capable system and can produce complex games.

    Co-op is a fantastic way to experience Saints Row, and luckily the co-op on Switch is just as robust. It is quite easy to do side content alone, and then join a friend to complete other things together. Overall, Saints Row 4 loses out on very little in its Switch port, and comes in an attractive bundle with every DLC unlocked and the ability to take one of the most beloved GTA-like games on the go.

    The biggest take away from this Nintendo Switch port of Saints Row IV is the words "outright fun". The fun is enhanced with a chock full of humour, sometimes a bit lewd, and memorable laugh-out-loud scenarios, encounters and moments. Mix in some RPG elements that include fun "superpowers" and you have a game even fans new to the Saints Row franchise can enjoy!

    The bullet comedy extravaganza action game from Volition returns on Switch. It's old and a little bit messy, but you're probably going to love it anyway.

    In 2020, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected’s combat feels prosaic, its glut of content perfunctory, and its humor antiquated. It’s great on Switch but actually playing it feels like looking through a weird interactive museum.

    The problem here is that not only does Saints Row IV look kind of bad, it runs abysmally. It takes a lot to get me to feel negatively towards one of my all-time favourite games, but this kind of achieves that dubious goal.

    I'm giving this a 10. It's a super fun game, I have SR3 and 4 on the switch and it's great having 2 open-world city-based games where in oneI'm giving this a 10. It's a super fun game, I have SR3 and 4 on the switch and it's great having 2 open-world city-based games where in one instance you have a typical GTA-style gameplay and in this one you have a superhero scifi style, it really adds a new dimension to what is essentially the same map. And most crucially, it runs really well on the switch. There are tank missions where you just go on a chain of blowing everything up and even then it's mostly smooth in docked mode. Sometimes there is the odd stutter or hiccup. The performance is overall worst when doing the blazin runs, its probably related to how fast you move and how fast the environment has to render, but even that is not a showstopping experience. Give it a chance on the switch. They've done well! Expand

I always felt like there was something to do and I never got bored because of all the different activities.

    I ended up 100% this game because it just had a stellar gameplay loop and felt really rewarding.

    The plot and humor in this was perfectly suited for me. I really appreciated what this game did with its cheesy B action movie plot. Even with the characters and plot it wanted to make sure you had fun with a constant flow of humor and high camp performances.

    The combat was also really well done and gave a good mix of super powers and gunplay.

    Funny story is the soul of this game, and the superpower provides even more stimulating experience.

    Saints Row IV is like GTA on meth. Like GTA, it's set in an urban open worlds where you can steal vehicles and drive to missions. However,Saints Row IV is like GTA on meth. Like GTA, it's set in an urban open worlds where you can steal vehicles and drive to missions. However, you'll soon get superpowers that are so over the top that they make driving entirely unnecessary, and they turn the game into a lunatic power fantasy.

    PROS:

    - CRAZY AND OVER THE TOP: From running over the side of a tower to jumping over buildings, stomping away trucks, and blast-freezing entire squads of enemies, Saints Row IV pushes the power fantasy to places that even videogames usually can't reach.

    - UNAPOLOGETICALLY TRASHY: This game is self-conscious about being in general bad taste, and it wallows in it. Everything is lurid and tacky. I loved it.

    - PLENTY TO DO: There is plenty of content in this game. The main missions won't keep you busy for long, but even after playing plenty of side missions, me and my co-op buddy were well below 60% completion.

    CONS:

    - TOO BUGGY FOR RELEASE: This is yet another untolerably buggy high profile release. In particular, the Switch version has a crippling bug when played in co-op: sometimes the game freezes at the end of a mission, forcing you to replay the entire mission from scratch. The game has been out for a long time already, but the publisher didn't bother to fix even this major bug. For your perfectly good money, you're getting a defective product.

    - OUTDATED VISUALS: This game is dated, and it shows. Some graphics age well. These don't.

    - ULTIMATELY BLAND: The "superpowers" feel good for sure, the story is wacky, and there is plenty of variety–but all those positive elements can't hide the fact that the moment-to-moment gameplay is often bland and uninspiring.
