Saints Row IV
« on: August 17, 2013, 07:54:09 AM »
Saints Row has always been a more over the top Grand Theft Auto clone. Well the fourth one is about to come out and while the story looks cheesy as hell (which it's always been). Some of the stuff you can do in it looks pretty damn fun and it's getting great reviews already. If you have some extra bucks definitely recommend getting GTA 5 over this but if you can afford both I'd say check this game out.

Any dude that hates on roller hockey hasn't played, and likely haven't played a sport in their entire life.

ill probably end up renting it. ive played the first & second saints rows but never really got into them like that, but the superpowers on here look like theyd be a blast to fuck around with. reminds me of that game crackdown, which i fucking loved to play back when i still had my 360

Don't they intentionally make the stories corny ?

They do but along with the over-the-top stuff, it gets so overdone that it just gets annoying
The humor in GTA has always been more clever and I appreciate/enjoy that way more.

My thoughts exactly. The original Saints Row was a lot of fun for me as an alternative to playing other more standard sandbox style games. Even the second game was a lot of fun. After the third and now fourth titles, the over-the-top cheesy story and gameplay seem a bit overdone.

Have been playing this shit all night and its a fucking blast. I tried the first too saints row games & couldn't really get into them, but THIS shit is actually really fun. The sci-fi storyline & superpowers really make it stand out from all the GTA clones out there. The dialogue is hilarious and there's a ton of pop-culture & video game references everywhere. They even have skytop knockoffs in one of the clothing stores lol. But basically aliens take over the planet & your put into a matrix-like simulation, which is how you get your superpowers. If you've ever played Crackdown you'll have an idea for how the gameplay is, but there's a bit more to it. Of course you got your super sprint & super jump, but you eventually get shit like fire & freeze blasts, telekinesis, & other crazy shit that really fits the whole "over the top" gameplay. I say if you're even halfway interested you should at least rent it & try it out. Again, I DID NOT fuck with all the other saints row games but this shit is pretty damn fun to play. Don't sleep on it

I'll probably just end up asking my sister to get it for me as a Christmas present. Considering the fact it's in the same city as the third, just with more over the top shit and GTA V is out in less than a month, I'd rather wait for GTA V.
