“Saints Row IV” is the fourth installment in the sandbox series often compared to Grand Theft Auto series. The game was developed by Volition studio.
The story is picked up from where the previous installment left it. A power-hungry alien named Zinyak wants to invade Earth in order to take control over the natural resources. And women. Only Third Street Saints gang can stop him. In order to succeed, Zinyak snatches the gang’s leader (i.e. the character controlled by the player) and imprisons him inside a virtual simulation of Steelport. This copied location resembles the real city, but it turns the hero into a slave. Players will visit numerous locations, e.g. a typical American city of the 50s, computer program’s core, and a huge spaceship.
The game features an extensive campaign comprised of numerous main and side missions. Basic gameplay mechanics remain unchanged, except for one thing – player’s character has a number of superpowers. One's avatar has been blessed with e.g. superhuman strength and speed, as well as the ability of performing extremely high jumps. These factors influence the gameplay possibilities by offering even more fun and crazy destruction.
