New Saints Row reboot game falls from grace and fails to impress fans of the classic open-world franchise.
According to many, the latest Saints Row game has few redeeming qualities. The title that had the ability to compete with Grand Theft Auto as an incredible open-world action game has failed to live up to its past greatness.
After the resounding success of the third instalment of Saints Row, gamers were eagerly anticipating the fourth game. Saints Row: The Third managed to compete with the most successful open-world action game of all time despite having a far lesser budget than Grand Theft Auto.
Saints Row: The Third had a ludicrously over-the-top, action-packed plot and chaotic gameplay. The game resembled a fever dream version of Grand Theft Auto, and one of its most attractive qualities was that it did not take itself too seriously.
Sadly the same cannot be said for the new Saints Row game. The new game is a reboot and the developers are trying to fix problems that nobody had issues with. This time the game is a little more politically correct and it seems to lean heavily in one political direction. It also a much tamer game than any of the others in the series.
Popular influencer and YouTuber Charles White Jr, better known by his online alias Cr1tikal, uninstalled the game after only playing it for a few hours and concluded by saying, “This really feels like a game that Saints Row would have made fun of 10 years ago, but it is what it is.”
The Saints Row reboot game has an embarrassingly low user score on Metacritic of a shocking 3.1.
