Join the GameSpot team as we take a look at some new gameplay for Saints Row IV.
Must buy for me.
You can already tell they were damn lazy with this too. Look at the streets. WTF are the people? Isn't this supposed to be a major city? There is barely any traffic. Small groups of people roaming around. And I remember that one level from SR3...the casino both in the regular game and that horde mode or whatever if I'm not mistaken. The mission even looks to play the exact same way. Same city? Yeah but that doesn't mean you have to go to the exact same damn places and do the exact same damn thing. They seem more concerned with the actors in the game than the game itself. Flashpoints are still lazy...go to an open area and kill gangmembers. What happened to actually going into building/warehouses/etc? Can't be bothered?? Romance...which seems a bit pointless in SR is even done in a lazy manner. They show you that there's not really a damn thing to do on the ship except that apparently unless they are being secretive about it. AI looks to be quite stupid. That's not really new though. Pure laziness. The spirit or whatever you want to call it of Saints Row died with SR2. This is just a bunch of random crap borrowed from movies and etc. Nothing wrong with that if the game was something else, Superhero Funtime or some nonsense....just not Saint's Row. In a way it kind reminds me of what I've heard about Movie 43. A bunch of well known actors thrown in a nonsense random movie. Some liked it, most didn't. The people that liked it say the same thing as the people that liked SR3 do..."It's supposed to be funny/crazy/silly/etc." as if that is an excuse for it not to make sense. Edit...damn, didn't mean for this to be so long-winded...
