Saints Row Released

Saints Row is now available for Windows via the Epic Games Store and for consoles, offering the latest installment in the open-world action series. If you missed it, we posted a roundup of reviews yesterday. The live action launch trailer is an interesting choice, given the loose relationship the series has always had with reality. So you know how the Fast and Furious series is said to be all about family? Turns out Saints Row is all about community:
Because really, beyond the cash, guns, cash, pimped-out rides, and cash, the Saints are really about one thing: community. This generation of Saints is no different. Will they blast the city with bazooka-fueled chaos and hijack your car straight from gliding in a wingsuit? Sure, but they do it with love. Of course, this is nothing new to the folks living in Santo Ileso.

Help Santo Ileso keep it weird with the game’s Boss Factory character creation suite. As one of the most robust character creators in gaming, Boss Factory pushes players to experiment with every part of your Boss, expressing themselves as they truly want to be seen. If you want to ditch the cowboy getup and go for something a bit more classy, say, a purple suit or a head-to-toe coat of gold spray paint, it can be done anytime, anywhere. Smash that customization button and take total design control of the new Saints HQ and the gang themselves. Dress up your gangsters, decide what they ride, and trick out your pad. You’re the boss, and what you say goes.

"... the Saints are really about one thing..."

A poorly made dud whose developers completely failed to understand even the slightest bit of what made Saints Row popular in the first place? Developers who apparently don't understand that an open world still needs cohesiveness so it all ties together? Physics that are so wonky that they make Goat Simulator seem almost realistic? Graphical glitches so jarring that even Johnny Silverhand sits back and says "Damn, son. People can see you"? Systems and mechanics so broken that Fallout 76 suddenly feels a huge boost of self-esteem about?

Every review I have read or watched highlights just how much of a clusterfuck this is and how absolutely tone deaf the developers behind it are.
Your problem is you didn’t read this Forbes clickbait. It would totes change your mind. Wink
‘Saints Row’ Is Actually Better Than You’ve Heard, For Saints Row Fans
So see, you’re not a fan.

Interesting.

Honestly, I think he's right about maybe what kind of fan you are. A lot of people here think SR2 was the peak. I think SR2 was when it started finding its voice, which it refined and polished for SR3. SR4 went off the rails, but in an insane and memorable way.

I may like this. Sounds like it may fit well for people that preferred SR3. But also, maybe it steers into the wackier stuff that was a bit try-hard at times, and the lack of a Gat is a problem as Gat was the series' highlight. I'd consider it if it comes to $4.99 and runs well on the Steam Deck, haha.

Generally, though, to your secret text, not sure I often agree with that author.
