Saved during the liquidation of THQ by Koch Media earlier this year, Deep Silver and Volition have swung true with a grand slam on Saints Row IV. Slathered with lowbrow and risque humor throughout the games’ storyline and design the team at Volition has concocted another hilarious parody of a third-person sandbox shooter with a twist, superpowers. Instead of pitting the Saints against the Saturday morning rendition superheroes follow up to Saints Row: The Third; Volition has gone one dimensional step beyond the Steelport of old.
Hopefully this won’t be the last Saints Row title by Volition, with the amounts of blasts from the past that were put into the game one can only wonder if there is a future for the Saints. Either way, Saints Row IV has delivered on another debaucherously funny storyline and game environment coupled with superpowers that make for a more engaging experience as you travel around Steelport.
