I really loved playing Saints Row IV! It was so much fun with a funny story, interesting gameplay, and kept me laughing and smiling while I was playing!
Basically you are the President of The United States who has to escape a simulation and rebuild Earth after it was taken over by aliens being led by Zinyak.
Fun Story Moments
I loved saving my team from the simulations to help defeat the aliens
- Saving Kenzi from a 1950’s simulation by blasting Rock music and using a dubstep weapon.
- Saving Matt from a text based computer game
- Saving Johnny Gat from a side-scrolling beat ’em-up game
I also enjoyed having super powers in the simulation such as being able to jump, glide, and smash. I loved gaining power over the areas by defeating aliens or climbing huge towers.
Fun Side Quests
I enjoyed spending time with Pierce singing “Opposites Attract” and “Just a Friend” until that song changed from rap to opera because Zinyak wanted to mess with us. I also enjoyed showing Gat Genki’s Super Ethical Reality Climax which he enjoyed. There was also a funny side quest involving hanging out with Fun Shaundi who was Shaundi’s younger self who was more carefree.
Ending and Credits
The game ended with a long boss fight against Zinyak. My favorite moment was a minor bug that happened during my game. Basically the game has you kill Zinyak in a Mortal Kimbat like style. The problem was is that my character was supposed to drop his head, but didn’t. So it stayed there any time my character appeared on screen from the ending to post-credits. This was especially funny when there was a dance scene to begin the credits and Zinyak was in it.
The credits made me like cry like they always do because of the adorable pictures of the staff and they voice actors sang two songs together like “Just a Friend” I just thought it was an adorable way to end the game. I also liked that there was a finance guy with the nickname “Financy Pants”.
This game was crazy and just a lot of fun! I found the game to be really relaxing and it made me smile and laugh! I really enjoyed playing this game and I am looking forward to the next Saints Row game.
