Dan Naylor: "Saint Row was – and lets be honest here – a knock off Grand Theft Auto when it spawned nine years ago. Since then though it has found its niche, comedy juxtaposed against GTA’s grittiness. Saints 3 had a lucha libre gang, hover-bikes and Professor Genki’s Super Ethical Reality Climax. Saints 4 threw off the last shackles of reality, with aliens, super-powers and a Matrix-style computer simulation. With Earth destroyed, it was hard to see where Volition could take the series next."
