Excerpt: saints row turned into a blatent kick in the junk with its third iteration. Saints row IV is the purple wing tipped shoe on that foot in said junk. I say this as both a compliment and a complaint because the IVth is really just a big expansion of the IIIrd most of the time. Well, it's basically the matrix and saints row the third put together with a smattering of nods, parodies and references to many other games and movies.
Summary: I am a BIG fan of Saints Row. I have played 2 and 3. I have only watched SR 1 on you tube because I do not have an Xbox. I love all three of them and the game play is excellent. SR 4 I can tell was not delivered by THQ. It has several glitches and areas in the graphics that are just a little sloppy. I look at the small stuff so I may be a little harsh but this is my opinion in comparison to SR 3. It is worth playing and I do recommend this to a friend.
