Excerpt: ) ja antoi pelille kiitettävät 4,5 tähteä, mutta koska jostain syystä arvostelukappaleita ilmestyi luukusta kaksi, päätin itsekin kastaa jalkani veteen ja sanoa oman sanaseni. Omassa katselmuksessani oli pelin PS3-versio.
Pros: + Järjetön meininki, + Pariodiointi toimii ja huvittaa, + Paljon puuhasteltavaa sivu- ja päätehtävien muodossa, + (Co-op pelitila), + Todella monipuolinen hahmonluontieditori
Cons: - Vaisu grafiikka.., - ..Joka ajoittain tökkiikin
Excerpt: I do admit, after playing the first Saints Row I lost interest in the series. To me it just seemed like another Grand Theft Auto wannabe. I tried playing a bit of Saints Row 2, and lost interest in an hour. As for Saints Row The Third, it arrived here and just sat at my desk until I eventually returned it. I don't know. I just couldn't get back into it, especially after more sandbox titles such as Red Dead Redemption and eventually Grand Theft Auto V impressed me more.
Summary: When I finished Saints Row: The Third in 2011, I left the experience feeling somewhat sad. It was a good game, but it felt shallow, held back, and ultimately a little disappointing. When I finished Saints Row IV in 2013, I left the experience feeling incredibly sad. This time, however, it was for very different reasons.
Excerpt: Saints Row has always been at the top of its game spoofing the ridiculous plot devices of both video games and movies. It's a sort of weird mix between Monty Python hijinks and Grand Theft Auto gameplay. The formula has worked for three iterations and stunningly, it continues to impress.
Excerpt: Saints Row: The Third became notorious for breaking away from that Grand Theft Auto -inspired style of action-adventure games. By thinking outside the box – way outside the box – developer Volition managed to successfully create one of the wildest sandbox titles this console generation. Saints Row IV continues that trend and even manages to go crazier, delivering a surreal adventure set in a virtual world where super powers, aliens, and dubstep are all commonplace.
Excerpt: In the world of Saints Row, there’s no such thing as ‘too much’ or ‘restraint.’ It’s that quality that has separated the series from its contemporaries, proudly blazing a path of over-the-top insanity with things like dildo bats and mascot massacres in a sandbox structure that has plenty of diversions beyond the main campaign. Improbable as it sounds, Saints Row IV somehow manages to up the ante once again with its ridiculous premise.
Conclusion: Saints Row IV is a video game unlike any you've played before with a rich story, sharp sense of humor and unique mechanics. It's only held back by a lack of variety and the need for a bit more polish.
