Saints Row IV is the fourth instalment in the Saints Row series which are Grand Theft Auto’s biggest rival. Volition brings us another sandbox full of gangsters and craziness. Saints Row IV directly continues the third part. Its story starts exactly when the previous one ended. The evil alien Zinyak is preparing his scary armada for an invasion on earth. He wants to control the planet in order to get its gold and women.
Only the Third Street Saints gang can stop him. That is why the evil general decided to imprison the player, the gangs leader, in a virtual simulation of the city of Steelport, all in order to guarantee that he can win. The virtual location is strikingly similar to the real one, but it is projected specifically so as to make our character a slave. Steelport is not the only place imagined there for our use, we also visit a typical American city from the 50’s, an enormous spaceship and even the inside of a computer program. The campaign is very develop and it includes a rich set of missions, both those revolving around the main story arc and side quests. The game is generally similar to the previous ones, but thanks to being inside of a virtual reality, our hero possesses a set of fun superpowers like inhumane strength and speed and the ability to perform super jumps.
This changes the possibilities and makes the gameplay much more diversified and fun than it used to be. Now the game is even more enjoyable and the destruction grand and omnipresent. The game is also full of stupid, immature jokes and idiotic missions. Let me know if you find anything serious in Saints Row IV! The weapons are absolutely illogical but that’s the best part of the game. Nothing can compete with Grand Theft Auto in terms of quality, but Saints Row series managed to find its niche in the fans of humor without ambitions and paradoxes.
