Has Saints Row IV Gotten Too Crazy?

As long as it's still fun, then no. We have a bajillian other, nitty gritty titles out there. As long as I get to co-op with my bro, slammin into cars and shootin guns everywhere, I'm there. Only now I can throw fireballs and fly too!

I agree, its looks outrageously crazy and fun.

The only reason I liked SR3 was because it was completely insane and over the top. If I wanted to play GTA I would just play GTA. But unlike the GTA games I actually bought, played, beat, and thoroughly enjoyed SR3. I hope they keep the same over the top craziness and lowball humor.

It looks like THQ was desperate for some money and told Volition to put everything they wanted into the game as fast as possible and then resell SR3.

This was actually real? I thought it was a joke or something.

Loved one ant two, disliked he fact they killed Gat without even giving him a cutscene. Now it's just a joke.

Don't get me wrong i like saints row games but ur never beat the 1st and 2nd.its seems to gone a long way of course from the 1st, i miss the gangs and how it felt more like a gta rival.its now heading towards a crackdown rival if anything. Ill buy it but its bloody gone well crazy. Gta 5 will wipe the floor with this thou. Anyway that's just my opinion.

It's not even Saint's Row anymore. I was watching the recent gameplay where the guy runs super speed, and super jumps all around the city. It looked fucking stupid. The entire time I kept thinking "Crackdown", because that's what this looks like! It doesn't look like Saint's Row at all.

Go back to fucking gang culture, why the fuck did you guys throw in Aliens and being the president? Seriously. Not interested at all. With GTA V coming out only 3 weeks later, and Watch Dogs shortly after, I see this game completely failing.

Serves them right. After SR3 the main complaint was that it was too stupid and a little too crazy, and everyone wanted them to go back to SR2. They didn't listen, they did the complete opposite.

I think the problem with SR4 is that it was already deep in development when 3 came out. They just went a head and release SR4 and is saving face for the whole "immature" tone of the game. When SR5 comes out I see the tone being more like SR2.

^^^^^^ couldn't of put it better myself. They've messed up

Just as much as the Third. That's why I ignore it now... too silly and juvenile for my taste.
