Madder than a barrel of espresso-fuelled monkeys...,
This review is from: Saints Row IV(PS3) (Video Game)
This is the first Saints Row game I've played, so I had no idea what to expect. That perhaps made the game seem even crazier than it was at first.
But to start at the beginning... The graphics REALLY aren't great. I thought it looked like a game from about ten years ago. In fact the whole thing looked so naff that I reckoned I would probably quit after 30 minutes or so.
I'm very glad I didn't. I would have missed one of the most fun experiences I've had on the PS3 for a long time. You soon forget about the graphics, and get caught up in the gameplay. This is like a cross between The Matrix and... well, and just about every other video game I've played recently! The different sections and sub-games somehow manage to copy and at the same time spoof lots and lots of other games, from GTA to the recent superhero games, as you dash around a virtual world in all sorts of outlandish costumes (or none!) wreaking all sorts of havoc.
How good do I really think it is? Here's the answer: I was playing a rental copy. I liked it so much that I've come here to BUY myself a copy. I almost never buy games I've previously rented, but I'm making an exception in this case.
