Saints Row IV Review [VR-Zone]

VR-Zone's gaming editor Derek Strickland delivers the verdict on Saints Row IV, the fourth chapter in Volition's signature outlandish and parody-infused sandbox franchise:

"Volition has once again brought all of the traditional elements of the Saints Row universe and infused them in a brand new adventure that breaks all the rules for all the right reasons. The result is entertaining from start to finish and has a limitless supply of laugh-out-loud moments, all of which are complimented by the signature explosive action set forth by the previous entries.

Saints Row IV is superhero sandbox mayhem done right, offering die-hard fans an unforgettable experience they will relish with pure childish splendor from start to finish." (PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360) 9/10

Why compare the two games? Maybe it would easier to compare SR1 and SR2, but SR4 is more like Crackdown if anything. One thing I will say is that a lot of the older SR fans (SR1/SR2) would probably buy GTA V before SR4.

I know for a fact I'll buy GTA 5 before Saints Row 4. I just hate what happened to the franchise that I loved at the beginning, and now it's some super hero game. O well, that's what happens when games get popular.

I don't think it's because it got popular. more because they knew that they had no chance of doing a game similar to SR1 / SR2, because it would be too similar to GTA V.

As a whole the SR series has the advantage of being whatever it wants to be. They could easily go back to being more like SR2 for the next installment or go in entirely different direction.

The reality is for R*, money is not an issue. And thanks to Jack Thompson, brand recognition and customer loyalty will never be an issue either. Its suicidal for any game to try and compete with it.

For better or worse SR4 is what it is, but at least its still around.

SR series is definitely fantastic, but it's important to realize that although the two franchises are very similar, they are quite different as well. Comparing them is very hard, since they're both great games, but it's nice to see that Volition has broken the mold even further with SR IV with virtual reality action.

It's definitely one of the most enjoyable games I've experienced this year simply because it gives you such massive freedom and packs in hilarious and unforgettable quests :D
