Saints Row is the fifth main entry in the popular series of open-world action games known for absurd and grotesque humor. The game was developed by Volition Inc., and published by Deep Silver, the company in charge of the franchise.
Saints Row is a prequel to the entire series, while also being its soft reboot. The action was set before the events presented in the first part of the series. The game takes players to Santo Ileso in the south-west of the USA, where the eponymous Saints were born. The protagonist climbs the rungs of criminal career trying to build his own criminal empire together with such personalities as Neenah, Kevin and Eli. The task is not easy, as the entourage has to face numerous hostile gangs like Los Panteros, Idols or Marshalls.
In Saints Row, the action is shown from third person perspective (TPP). The game lets you create your own character. Next, we have no choice but to cast ourselves into the criminal underworld.
The game offers the largest and most diverse open world in the history of the series, which consists of a metropolis and surrounding areas, including a sandy desert. We can travel through it on foot or using cars, motorcycles, planes, and helicopters, as well as hoverboards or go-karts. The gliding suit, which allows you to cover long distances in the air in an environmentally friendly (though not necessarily safe) way tops off the list of means of transportation.
The map is divided into five areas, and in order to gain control over each of them, we have to perform missions and fight hosts of enemies. We eliminate them using an extensive arsenal that includes melee weapons and firearms, as well as more exotic tools of destruction.
Saints Row offers can be played in singleplayer, or in multiplayer co-op. Other players can join the game at any time.
Saints Row offers detailed graphics in the characteristic, cartoonish, ans slightly caricatured style.
