Saints Row IV

This Is Not Saints Row & It’s Fun

I was surprised that I actually ended up liking the this game more then the last one. The direction the third game was going left much to be desired. However this game goes so far off the deep end that it’s hardly a Saints Row game, it’s just surreal. You start off as the president of the United States. Then an alien entity come to earth and destroyed everything, I mean the whole planet is gone. There is no coming back, but then it decides to create a computer simulation of the world it destroyed. This is the new environment where you will be playing. A hackable version of the real world that the developers just cloned and tweaked from the last game. The game has the familiar Saints Row characteristics with lots of customization and progression systems. Along the way however you will gather some super human abilities that makes the game play more like Crackdown then Saints Row. That said as long as you don’t think about it you will end up enjoying yourself in the game. It may even make you want to fire up Crackdown after it’s all said and done.

  • It's the first call of Duty game and it's now available on the Xbox 360. The game is very much a game of inches as you fight your way to the next checkpoint. You will need to play this game on the hardest difficulty to complete an achievement and it will test every fiber of your being as enemies pour down grenades on you as if they were giving fists full of candy to children...

  • I have enjoyed the previous two titles in the Saints Row series. This one is taking the story, the jokes, and the believability over the edge. It’s no longer about you taking over street turf (Although it still is). It’s more about you taking over the world as if you are some sports figure with endorsement and movie deals. The game has to go bigger...

  • The Raven is a nice little click it/who done it adventure game with very detailed environments. The world is not that large, but for an arcade title the game is some 8+ Gigs on the Xbox 360 (One of the reasons I wanted to play and finish it), that’s huge! The story is set in an Agatha Christie style atmosphere where a master thief though dead has stolen...

  • If you enjoyed the first Puzzle Quest game, then I think you will like this one as well. The gameplay remains primarily the same. Match gems to build mana pools to cast spells and destroy your enemy. What has changed is that the traveling in this new world has gotten a smaller, more zoomed in view. Weapon and armor are also now upgradable by collecting items...

  • You know Shaun White from the snowboarding world and his run in the Olympics. He does have a snowboarding game (that makes sense), but he also has a skateboarding game which is not that bad. Now I’m not a big skateboarding fan and have only played Tony Hawk’s Wasteland. In comparison this game is far better. It’s a fun and a fairly easy completion....
