saints row IV
'if you could a have any superpower what would it be?'
'all of 'em!'
A riot of colours, saints row IV is like a playful great dane cyber puppy licking your face with magnetism and ridiculousness on a sunny Sunday morning.
Mechanically it's a GTAV vs Superman vs Destroy All Humans! hybrid, this game really throws the kitchen sink at it gameplaywise, and turns it up to eleventystupid.
Whether you are bouncing up a skyscraper, hacking a gun shop, stealing a UFO, or fighting a super cyber monster, this game's acid dreamlike quality and lol sense of humour, will have you hooked from the start;
(oh look, there's a guy dressed as an energy drink dancing with a guy dressed as a hotdog in a high end clothes shop...)
and it's great to get around when you can glide like a flyingsquirrel...
As the President of the USA/ Head of a Gang, kidnapped by aliens, trapped in a matrix like simulation...
...there is a lot to do...
and if you get bored of that,
the reggae channel is awesome.
a brilliantly bonkers take on the crime sandbox genre.
