Right off the bat, once you run into Dan, you already have like 51 quests you can do. This only continues to grow as you progress through the game. I already mentioned the side quests of saving the falling souls, but you also have the ability to play as one of the Husks (damned souls) in order to cause as much damage, or as they put it, years in which they’ve been tortured, and then of course the normal stuff like causing as much destruction as possible, races (only this time they are flying races), find various collectibles hidden all over Hell. There’s no shortage of stuff to do in this game.

Things are only made more enjoyable by the voice cast of the game. Everyone nails their respective characters and continue the level of amusing self-aware mentality that has been present for the past couple of games. If you are a comic book fan, think Deadpool only a little more contained when it comes to the fourth wall. Hey did I mention there are musical numbers in this game.

Graphically, this is a solid looking game. Nothing too glamorous, everything just seems like a typical Saints Row game but a little sharper more polished here and there. During my time with the game I have to say it was a very pleasing Hell of an experience. I do wonder is we will see the day when Saints Row games start “growing-up” I really hope not. The stylized fun approach to the series is really what helps it retain its own path and helps define it in its own right.

In the end, should you pick the latest Saints Row chapter? Why the Hell not? The Saints games have continued to walk their own path and if you’ve been enjoying the recent experiences they’ve been throwing at us, then there is simply no reason to not get this one. Tons of gameplay, awesome new abilities, and probably the most enjoyable time anyone would really spend in Hell. Yeah I’m sold and you will be too.
