I was so worried that was just going to feel like it could have been a lazy add on for The Third.

Glad to see that I'm wrong and that I pre-ordered it~ =)

Was this review played on PC? The PC history of SR ports has been... spotty, at best. It would be nice for confirmation it's actually going to run before I put in a preorder, although this review is a good sign.

Edit: I am bad at reading comprehension. Apparently it is. Awesome.

According to the line at the bottom of the review page, it was based on the PC version of the game.

Well the customization is still way bellow SR2 and Kieth David is a cocktease.
Still... If they're not even pretending to be a gang war shooter anymore.

Did they really use the same map from SR3? Am I the only one who finds that really lame? It wasn't that great a map. I felt it was kind of flat compared to the one in SR2 getting into a big firefight in one location was much like getting into a firefight in any other location. Definitely not a good enough map to recycle. I'm going to rent it but its going to have to be 'DAMN!' good for me to buy it.

But the main question remains: is Alex Mercer [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prototype_(video_game)] in this?

Good to see that the Saints Row series isn't dead yet.
Also it seems to be returning to it's former glory (Or surpassing it) in this latest game. Well I'm guessing that because it seems to be earning high reviews from everyone, even our own Jim Stirling on Destructoid.

Well I'm glad I went back to Preorder it in Australia.
And I shall look forward to that DLC alien probe. HAH~

Now I just need to wait ... I hate waiting.
I wonder if people will call it Saints Row 3.5 after all of this?

No, the main question: is Burt f--king Reynolds in the game?

So you mean the doomsayers that claimed it was Saints Row 3.5 without ever trying it were wrong?

You don't say?

Man, I hope I get a tax return or something. I don't want to wait for a sale.

From the early release gameplay videos I've seen, SRIV appears to parody the following games: Prototype, Mass Effect, Far Cry: Blood Dragon, and XCOM: The Bureau. It looks brilliant!

Yes, yes, mayhem destruction super-powers dildos boom kapow blam. Much crazyness everywhere. That was never really in question. I just want to know if the storyline is as horribly borked as SR3.

According to Metacritic, it is.

Of course, if you're looking for something story-driven and well-written, you're in the wrong genre.

Wait, you won't be able to romance Keith David?
Welp now I know that I won't be getting this game. Damn it Volition! D:

In all seriousness, great review, it is making me consider picking it up(which is better than "never going to get it"). Probably when the price goes down a bit.

So it's somewhere between the first game and the third?

Ok, that seems reasonable enough. Wish it were a bit longer though. It took me 30+ hours to finish The Complete Package, main quest and side missions, no completionist fluff.

Not only did they recycle the map (and a lot of other assets), they turned it into a dark mess with red and blue highlights. The map really doesn't seem to be this game's best part.

I think I'll wait for a price drop before getting it. This game just seems way too disconnected. As TotalBiscuit said in his video about it, it's really a game that doesn't give a fuck and wants you to have fun. Nothing wrong with that, but I actually like games that do give a fuck. Also, the super powers seem fun, but way too OP, and I doubt I'll enjoy them for very long.

Your main page article header thingy uses Saints Row the Third artwork.

Other than that, I'm super excited for this. Hopefully, I'll be able to attend the New York launch event (just need to know what time of day it starts).

Saint's Row gets a 5 and Dragon's Crown a 3? Really, Escapist?


Just kidding, I respect your opinions. I didn't like Saint's Row The Third, but since one of my friends is buying 4 I will give it a shot.

Captchas get excited over anything.
I would definitely wait for the price to drop then. It does look like fun but yea, if it's in the same city, that's going to get old quickly. I refused to pay $20 for the GTA4 mission packs, I can't imagine paying $60 for what's essentially the same thing.
It's too bad. SR2 is one of my favorite games from this generation.
I'm hoping that if GTA V has absurdly priced DLC again that we at least get another city (San Fierro or Las Venturas) and a female character to finally play as.

My club has a guy who gets games early, probably to review them too. I watched them play this yesterday. It looked pretty damn awesome. I was hesitant about the fourth installment, but now I can safely say I am excited. I can't wait to play it. I could have played it yesterday, but I'd rather wait until I get to play it from start to end on PC:

Saints Row IV Review - Hilarious and Over The Top

Over the top action, melodramatic alien overlords and Keith David. What's not to like?

Read Full Article
I really enjoyed Saints Row: The Third but one of the issues I had with it was the pedestrian AI. I try not to run over people if I can avoid it but in SR3, I'd be driving a tank down the center of the street and when people panic they get a direction set and run in that direction until outside the panic area. The problem is that they would often choose the same direction as my tank but a couple degrees off, meaning they slowly were edging their way in front of my tank. Then they'd die. I really hated how stupid they were programmed, people shouldn't be running in the way of a tank while panicked.



Anyway, did you notice any issues like that or did you not really spend that much time in vehicles due to the powers?

And so once again Keith David-sexuals are left out by game developers. Gotta say, that's pretty disheartening. I thought we were making progress on this issue.

According to the Destructiod review the story is really funny and very well written. The reviewer, Jim Sterling, was disappointed with the story in 3, so it looks like it's a big step up at any rate. Which is good, because 2 had awesome writing.

In my opinion, This game is trying way too hard to have more variety than GTA,
that it forgot one very important thing for any sandbox game, interesting city to explore.
Tho, I like Saints Row's series because of its siliness.
Simply blame the new publisher for probably forcing this game out so early, it should have been a next gen release with a new city, too bad :(
So IMO, Not worth $60.

But how do you know the city isn't interesting to explore? Have you played it? The reviews I've read have said that there's plenty of stuff to do in Steelport (As well as the other locations you visit).

And Saints Row IV was always going to be this gen, and I believe I read somewhere that their designing the next Saints game with the next gen in mind, since it's going to be a different story with different characters.

Considering the vid Jim did on the romances, which is pretty spoileriffic,
I'd be surprised if Keith David truely isn't romanceable, and they just missed the pre-reqs somewhere.

I'm still pretty pumped over SR4 coz it spoiled me as far as sandbox games go thanks to it's character customization, and gender select. It's basically the only game in it's genre I know of that lets you play as a woman.

'm gunna pre-order it, I hope, after moving.

I'm torn in half, I was already tearing during Saints Row the Third. I can't deny how much fun I had, I can't deny how much better it played and I certainly can't deny its absurdity. I just can't help notice that their Jack Sparrow is suddenly missing a Will Turner and it seems they're now missing Elizabeth. I pre-ordered the Third, but I'm probably going to wait for this now. I understand the decision that Volition took Saints Row in and I respect Deep Silver for carrying on the absurdity, but I don't like it.

Saints Row 2 (I realise a lot of people bat on about SR2, they hold it up to some heights) was and is a great game. It's the perfect balance of sweet and sour. I'm not going to deny it wasn't absurd, (e.g. Mr. Sunshine and his Voodoo immortality) but it had balance between the insanity and the gang war against the Ronin, Sons of Samedi and the Brotherhood. There's a sense of progression that lets you feel like you're moving up in the world. The Third tried to pull you back down to Earth, but that lasts about 20 minutes before you've got a tower with a helipad and more guns than you know what to do with.
I'll still be enjoying the Saints Row series, I'll just always find myself looking back at Saints Row 2 wondering what's going on in Stillwater.

I heard a lot of similar admiration for Saints Row 3, and I found that game pretty disappointing overall. It felt like that episode of the Simpsons when Homer becomes the leader of the Stone Cutters and they let him win at everything. SR3 (or the Third) feels like it's trying so hard to make me feel awesome and throw all this funny over the top stuff in my face, but I walk away from the whole experience feeling like it's just some empty, mindless game.

Looks I should just replay SR2, right?
It still looks great, if I had the time and money I'd pick it up. SR2 was the right balance of insanity and drama.

By exploring Sr3's city i can tell you its going to be the same city in SR4. I've already recognized a few places i saw in Sr4 from SR3's map. The new thing is the wierd red tower in the city or what ever it is LOL.
The Story looks pretty cool, I want to know more about Zinyak and The Zin Empire. Also theres same gun fights system from SR3 in SR4(Which is a good thing for me). And now you can have super powers, new guns and more new things.
Tho, IMO, they rushed the game too much. they could wait a few more months and change more things at the game instead of taking existed things from SR3. For example, the character customization is pretty the same from Sr3.
Also, Most of the cars which are going to be in SR4 were already existed in SR3, which is a pity.
They could focus on making more cool activities, Cause I really enjoyed SR3's activities.
But I can totally say, I'll get the game eventually, for sure.
SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH!

I still don't see how you can call the game rushed. It's been two years since The Third, which is pretty average for a game sequel, and the Saints Row series in general. Yes, it's still in Steelport, and using a lot of the same resources from 3, but we still haven't seen much of the games content. You don't know how much of Steelport has been changed up, or if they added a lot more clothing options (I've already seen a ton of new stuff just from the promotional material). If it turns out that they should have spent more time on the game, I'll say so myself. But after I've played the game, not before.

Your English is fine, by the way. Better than some native speakers I know.

I've had this pre-ordered for months and when I got to get a hands on go at PAX Aus it was so worth it for the Dubstep gun. How can a weapon be that fun to use?

There's been plenty of superpower sandbox games though.

Games that this one is obviously ripping powers from. There is no mistaking the flying-squirrel move from Prototype.

There must be something wrong with me, I never find this type of thing "fun". It's too over the top and the mechanics/gameplay are childishly simple. All the same praises were given to SR3 when that came out, and really the game was pretty awful, unless you go nuts for the bizarre forced humor.

Not trying to be a GTA fanboy here, but I'm all-in for GTA 5 and can't wait for that. I'll be playing the new XCOM and Payday 2 instead of SR4 me thinks.

I'm so glad I've pre-ordered this game. I wonder what the DLC will be like?

This has been a message from Evil Smurf, the grammar nazi.

I'm sure they are aware of that. I use "tho" all the time as well.

There is no such thing as a "Grammar Nazi" btw, the National Socialist German Workers' Party didn't have a "Grammar" division, tho they did have an office for Propaganda.

It's a new neo nazi division.

Play as the Hulk combined with the Flash combined with Dr. Strange, cool.

Okay you can't romance Keith David, can you at least get into a fist fight with him over wearing sunglasses?

Well, spoiler alert, but:

Roddy Piper is in the game (Kinda similar to Burt Reynolds in SR3, from what we've seen), and it's known through achievements/spoilers that someone ends up betraying the Saints to help the aliens. I'll let you figure out who.

OT: Glad to hear that reviews of this game are very positive. Wasn't looking forward to the game when it was first announced, but now I'm ready to play it.

I might actually have to get this one earlier than intended. I started with SR2 and played it to completion who knows how many times, but playing a friend's copy of SR3 didn't really hook me the same way. (I still bought it, but much later, after it went way down in price.) The lack of a Keith David romance is killing me, though. :/

Currently playing through the Third following the Steam sale, while I'm enjoying it my feelings are that if you're going to go wacky then go right off the deep end. The Third is not quite that, as there are times where I very much felt I was playing the gang war angle of the first two games. Now that it is out of the way, hopefully IV will be that deep end.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who's ever played Crackdown. Nobody ever mentions the similarities to it.

I played Crackdown, and not just for the Halo 3 beta. It was good, but other super sandboxes like inFamous are a lot better. And Crackdown 2... well, that was just bad.

I've already got this preloaded, and I'm just sitting here, watching movies and Doctor Who until I can download those last few kilobytes and start running around with superpowers.

I want to buy it, but I refuse to preorder because Steam has screwed me in the past by allowing to preorder a game and then refusing to let me actually play it because of my region. Since availability in Japan is listed as TBA in Wikipedia, I'm not biting.... yet.

Was this review played on PC? The PC history of SR ports has been... spotty, at best. It would be nice for confirmation it's actually going to run before I put in a preorder, although this review is a good sign.

Edit: I am bad at reading comprehension. Apparently it is. Awesome.
You'll be happy to know something else that will happen soon: the release of the Mod Development Kit for the SRTT/SR4 engine, plus a devkit for the SR2 engine. Meaning that we'll finally be able to fill the gaping holes in the Saints' Wardrobe and put new cars in... so in the end, you'll be able to have everything you dreamed of, plus a multiplayer mod.

Wait, Saint's Row The Third was supposed to be a drama?
OT, this looks like one of the funniest games I've ever seen! I love it when games stop trying to take themselves seriously and go so over the top like this. Saint's Row knows their audience and when we said "WE WANT TO HAVE FUN, DAMMIT!", they answered.
