ABCNews- Review: 'Saints Row IV' Goes off the Deep End

ABC:"Saints Row," the shoot-'em-up video game franchise that debuted in 2006 as a knockoff of "Grand Theft Auto," has always been unapologetically low-brow and self-consciously silly. "Saints Row IV" (Volition, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, $59.99) doesn't veer from that pre-established mindlessness. In fact, it drives right through it, off a cliff and straight into outer space.

"While it's plagued with problems, "Saints Row IV" continues down its predecessors' path as outrageously mindless fun, the equivalent of interactive junk food. It's not as thought-provoking as a "BioShock" or as polished as an "Uncharted." It's just a yummy bag of gummy worms to gnaw on for a month before "Grand Theft Auto V" is released"

That's real harsh

Yeah but...just look at Grand Theft Auto look back at Saints Row. It just doesn't compare. I think that gummy worms metaphor is spot on.

Nobody give a crap about it

Well deserved and said review. Sadly this game occupied gamer at least 1 month until GTA V released and after that this game is forever forgotten

Awwww, you've found the one review that validates your opinion. you must feel special now.

Kind of strange though that you care so much to use all 3 of your bubbles commenting on a game you have decided to hate even before its released. Its almost like you are butt-hurt that it isn't doing as bad as you've assumed.

Well, never mind all that, you are special now!
