Too over the top, what was working for Saints Row was that it was not exactly realistic, but mainly anchored in reality, letting you do outrageous things in a "real world" setting. This new one is more like a blend of Prototype and The Matrix, it's taken it in a whole new direction, and not even a little bit anchored in reality.
LOL: heck of a way to wrap up the current Saint's Row saga! SR4 looks even more over the top that SR3!
what the hell happened to this series??????????????????? saints row 1 was great saint row 2 was good...........the rest is trash i know someone was smoking something while making this crap
i don't know how this site give this stupid game a 7.5 rating
and a 5 rating to a much better game like lost planet 3
Its the matrix game you have always wanted to play... ,being GTA meets Matrix, how could you not like this game... sure it's not super clean with tight gameplay mechanics and a deep storyline..... but if you are looking for a game to laugh with and just have fun with... this game is amazing, I love Metro, Bioshock and the like.. but sometimes you need a pallet cleanser... THANK YOU SAINTS ROW IV
no,and no saint row 4 is very bad gameplay,not so much good grafic,funny noob jokes,in one word horrible game!
just seen the tv trailer ..............is this game looked like mass effect lol what the hell..........i only played sr 1 and 2 why does it seem like their on an space craft like an episode of star trek which i hate
this is a great game but its not like the old SR its not about gangs and gangsters aliens are not in the spirit of SR but its still a fun game
I'll definitely get it at some point, just not yet, I'm still having fun with Saints Row 3 since I only bought that during the Steam summer sale
As much as I want to play this, I can't justify spending £40 (which is a lot anyway) on the PC version for a game that uses almost all assets from Saints Row 3 which I already own. It will have to be a christmas sale purchase methinks.
And one more thing.....the dance at the end........was super awesome! Who played the game know what I'm talking about. :)
Awesome Game!, I finished it...and it's awesome!, this one didn't try to compete with GTA 4 or 5. It takes its own path, it's funny & crazy, ant I love it for what it is. Oh yeah....and the music is pure motherfu*king awesome! :D
The game is fun for what it is. Just don't expect anything remotely close to the previous SR games. Cars are useless, homies are usless. I was hoping it would have been closer to 2 or 3 as I felt they had the right balance of being over the top (especially 3) while not being to over the top.
Looks like they did whatever they could to involve super-hero stuff and get it released before GTA5.
I don't know why they even call it Saint's Row anymore. We'll never get a true sequel to Saint's Row 2.
They had a good thing going with 2; great balance of seriousness and wackiness. Now it's just all "SO OVER THE TOP AND RANDOM LOL! XD". Shame.
Looks like it has some entertaining and fun moments, but there's just too many pop ups over the screen for me to enjoy this.
Crap like that always breaks the illusion for me.
first saints row was good, couldnt play the second one and 3rd i was able to play for a few hours. to much humor was put into this game after 1.
Not interested in a fake ass game like this. SR IV has nothing on GTA IV. All you SR Fans think SR IV will win GOTY sorry to tell you it won't. GTA is realism while SR IV is not. This game is a copy of DC Universe Online,InFamous. 7.5 is spot on. The game is average.
@assassins8creed I liked SR better as a GTA clone.SR2 +Gentlemen Of The Row mod is awesome.
@PrplMnkyDshwsr7 Yea probably sometime right after thanksgiving.
omg ye it does, how comes he/she is reviewing like every game now? dont they have anyone else?
@MotRFalcon You didn't think 3 was over the top?
@JimmyJumpy Yeah because it looks exactly like san andreas...
@pierredevaux because they are using 8 year old hardware?
@Kray-z-J Your loss.
@BryanParksSuper back in the days of nes , snes , nintendo 64 and all that people didnt care about realism , But they stil had fun with games, thats the problem with these games today, they strive so hard to be so realistic they forget the 3 letter word : FUN
@BryanParksSuper GTA V maybe super realistic, but they are times when games like Saints Rows deserve better, people nowadays always stick up to one game series and don't give other any chances, I'm getting this game instead of GTA V, since most will get GTA V anyway!
@BryanParksSuper Dude wtf are you talking about? SR 4 isn't trying to be GTA 4,nobody thinks it will be GOTY and just because it has superpowers you're saying its a copy of infamous? It doesn't even have the same powers.....And 7.5 = Good if you didn't notice.
@BryanParksSuper i agree with you for the most part but it's not at all like infamous or DC Universe. The only thing these games have in common are open world and super powers.
