About this deal

Welcome to Santo Ileso, a vibrant fictional city in the heart of the American SouthWest. In a world rife with crime, where lawless factions fight for power, a group of young friends embark on their own criminal venture, as they rise to the top in their bid to become Self Made. This entry hits with silliness within minutes of play, with the lead character delivering what is likely the longest string of f-bombs in all of entertainment. This moment cements the game’s silly (and low brow) vibe, which hits more than it misses, and shows the protagonist can be a bit of a wild card. The player designs this character, determining their sex, voice, facial features, and even the size of their genitalia. This lead is nicely penned and blends seamlessly with a fantastic supporting cast that gives the game a legitimate team dynamic, both in the story and mission flow. Eli is the brains of the operation, and his love of LARPing rubs off on you. Neenah’s obsession with cars and art is contagious and represented in play. And then there’s Kev, who is always shirtless, loves tacos, and is one of the fathers to a fantastic cat (that actually plays a significant role in the plot). As for the storyline, while creative, it wasn’t as immersive as previous entries to the series. It seemed a realistic setting with some outlandish weapons and vehicles felt more relatable to players than a jaunt into space.

Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands) may take longer to reach you. Up until the release of GTA 3 the series had looked quite different. An overhead view, clunky mechanics, and a distinctive but unimpressive look had been a staple of the series to that point. It seemed that this would be the sour note the Saints Row franchise bowed out on, until… The Rebirth of Saints RowWant to shoot someone with a Foam Finger? Hit someone with a football that shoots them into the sky and blows them up? Shove a grenade into someone’s mouth and throw them at another enemy? You can do all of that and more, and that’s sure to be the tip of the iceberg. Pitched as a first-person shooter, at some point in its 4 years of development things changed, with production jumping to the Xbox 360 in the process.

Almost every element of the first game saw improvements in the sequel. More licensed music, better controls, a bigger story, larger environments and, of course, more ways to cause mayhem. While some prefer the next entry into the series, Saints Row 2 is, in my opinion, the most well-rounded game in the franchise. Going All OutIt’s fun, it has a great story (not so much a great ending, but I won’t spoil it) and it reviewed well. But it was undoubtedly helped by the fact it was the first game of its type on a new generation of consoles. Identity Confirmed With the Saints disbanded, ‘Playa’ wakes from a 5-year coma having required extensive plastic surgery, which is a brilliant touch. It explains why he may look different (or even have changed gender – as this is the first in the series that offers the option of a female protagonist) and it gets mentioned… a lot. The newest entry in the franchise is set in Santo Ileso – a huge fictional city loosely based on Las Vegas that is boasting "the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created", and promises a larger-than-life sandbox for players to explore with vehicles like cars, bikes, planes, helicopters and even a wingsuit. Ultor is a corporation who have spent millions to redevelop the city. Again, another great in-game explanation for the improvements. Obviously though, being a huge corporation… they are also corrupt. There is now a ‘respect’ system to give more meaning to side-missions and activities. But the most noticeable change is how much bigger Stillwater is. They explain this with another big change; Ultor.

On 17th November 2021, Saints Row was delayed from its original release date of February 25, 2022 to August 23, 2022. [6] [7]A ‘Standalone Expansion’ (figure that one out) called Gat out of Hell followed, which saw The Saints continue their capers – this time in hell. The Notorious Edition is a special collection of exclusive physical items; this is the ultimate creation for serious Saints Row fans and collectors! Given The Saints start out on top, I’d forgive you for thinking that Volition had gone in a different direction… but you’d be wrong. However, the introduction of superpowers removed a lot of the challenge from the game, likened to a ‘God Mode’. Players also felt the environments weren’t as vibrant and the missions felt more linear.
