Saints Row IVOverview -
An open world game where you have superpowers? Sounds like a winning formula to me. Volition must of thought so as well, when they decided to turn an expansion to 'Saints Row: the Third' into a full-blown sequel. And compared with the third game, 'Saints Row IV' has upped the ante and leapt past any notion of sanity or realism. Want to earn money dressed as a goth astronaut with a toilet seat as legs by jumping in front of moving vehicles and faking an injury? You can do that here!
The game looks good but not as great as other open world games out (cough, 'GTA'). As with all titles on the PC, the level of detail and resolution is dependent on the power of your computer. After turning everything to max on my rig, I was still able to get a good frame rate at a 1440 X 990 resolution. The textures and animations are definitely stylized, but they work well with the goofiness of the game. I didn’t really see any clipping or bad camera work anywhere.
Going with the outrageous nature of everything else that is going on in the game, the audio is similarly over the top. Radio stations, of which there are several, blare entire news broadcasts and comedy shows. Music is ambient and kooky without being distracting. The voice acting unfortunately is hit and miss and greatly depends on the gender of your main character. Compared to the male voice, I found the female voice to be a little lacking when delivering the game’s many one liners.
This game is perfectly built for the 10-year-old inside of every one of us. If you enjoy mass mayhem without the need for consequences, this is definitely going to be the most fun you have had in ages.
