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.

‘Saints Row’ Is Actually Better Than You’ve Heard, For Saints Row Fans
So see, you’re not a fan.

I know you're teasing and all but I don't really care what that guy has to say even after reading the handful of paragraphs he managed to squeeze in between his Destiny lovefests. His "review" has all the weight and depth of cotton candy. He doesn't dive in to really anything about the game except for a LARPing mission.

Setting aside all the broken graphics and mechanics, the thing he fails to mention that is probably the most damning is that the characters are at best milquetoast. Your character, your gang's characters, and your enemies' characters. They're like a sandwich made out of store brand white bread and generic mayo that has been dipped in reconstituted milk. No one is going to top Gat in the SR universe so let's set him aside. Shaundi was memorable. Zimos was memorable. Dexter, Troy, Merril, the DeWynter sisters, all of them memorable and having a place in the universe.

From everything I have read and watched, this Saints Row is so unremarkable that it might as well have been developed and released by Ubisoft.

Edit to add:

After thinking about it for a couple of moments, this Saints Row has the same problem that Watch Dogs: Legion had. All of the characters are utterly forgettable and it's an open world a mile wide and an inch deep.
