Diehard GameFAN: Saint's Row IV Preview

DHGF: The demo leaves a few obvious questions unanswered, like “how much of the game is going to be spent switching between the real and virtual world?” and “will powers carry over from one world to the other?” among others, though the most obvious issue is that, well, the game is Crackdown now, basically. That’s not a bad thing, as Crackdown was fine, and if anything, Saints Row IV is shaping up to be a far better game than that was, but it feels like the franchise is becoming the “Vague Genre Movie” parody franchise for sandbox games. That’s not a bad thing by any means; Mel Brooks made the majority of his money and impact as a director by parodying things in a way that was funny even if you didn’t get the in-jokes. It’s just hard to know how Saints Row IV is going to turn out based on that concept. (PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360)
