    It's not even woke in the sense that it would be blatantly pushing some agenda, it just tries to be as safe as a Big Bang Theory episode while still being a game about building a gang. The end result is fucking absurd.
    If a GTA game had a parody GTA clone inside it, this could be its plot.

    Also lots of gamebreaking bugs, while being very dated technically and mechanically.

    Nah, explain to me why it's good. There are multiple hundreds of games released every year, and I physically cannot play every game I want to play. Saints Row is thus competing against hundreds of games, let alone the thousands from the past that I haven't been able to play yet.

    A game doesn't have to be "not bad". There are tens of thousands of games in existence. Being "mediocre" is the same as being total trash for all I care.

    Disregarding the subjective elements (the story, woke or whatever), the game mechanically is extremely half assed and reuses the majority of Saints Row 3's animations and they SOMEHOW managed to fuck them up as well, the engine itself seems to be a rehashed version of the SR3 remaster's and the majority of the activities are also buggy rehashes, not to mention the combat itself is extremely mind numbing and boring.

    In short, the reboot is an extremely mediocre and soulless asset flip minimum viable product that represents everything wrong with modern gaming.

      Bad ai
      Scripted fighting areas where you die leaving it, even when you're in a big open area. Sometimes ai won't come into the area because of bad scripting and you can't kill them getting you stuck
      Scripted events don't work properly half the time
      Your shots have a big delay
      Forced auto aim that's bad and floaty
      Cars and pedestrians don't spawn in half the time
      Story is retarded
      There is no recognizable main villain or leader of the gangs

            There's nothing wrong with hating dollar-thrift store versions of the SR2 crew.

            During the initial teasing of the reveal, I thought we were really going back to the series's roots. Then the rug was pulled out from under me and Volition said they were going to make the new Saints Row "their own way" and that I should go fuck myself if I liked the older games.

        Look at any footage of the game with players getting stuck, vehicles physics start flying out of nowhere or that infamous cutscene glitch of the showdown that has been shared a lot.
        >Poorly balanced
        Combat just doesn't look balanced. I've seen videos where basic enemies will just take 3 headshot like nothing or grenades and special moves would only remove about 20% of health even at direct hit.
        The game looks bullet spongey with no real satisfying gunplay or weaponry.

    I could go on but it's pointless. The game is objectively shit from every perspective, you don't even need to address the narrative or subject matter or characters, even if those were all great (and they are terrible) this game would still be complete trash.

    The game forces side content to progress the main content
    The side content is fucking garbage, one of which is being the driver of a heist, but you never participate in the actual fucking heist, you just wait outside then haul the npcs that do the heist to the next place.
    We are dealing with developers that thought waiting outside while npcs do the fun stuff was entertaining.
    The writing is god awful and painfully unfunny. One of the most egregious moment is near the start where nothing is happening, but the writer thought the best way to fill the void is to make your character swear up a storm like a tourettes patient
    Shooting is mediocre and anemic as fuck with enemies taking like 3 fucking headshots to die. Even Saints Row 3 and 4 are more merciful.
    You regenerate health by doing press x for awesome takedowns, but they last so fucking long as if they wanted to punish you from getting shot in a hitscan game. Saints Row 4 fixed this fucking problem already by making enemies drop health upon kill so the pace doesn't get broken up this badly.
    Fucking LARP jokes and a mission all about LARPers in current year that is as entertaining as jamming rusty nails into your fingernails.

    Play Sunset Overdrive instead. We have reached a new low when that fucking game is more entertaining.

    I played it to 70-80% completion, so it's not that the game is bad, but holy shit is it genuinely of the most frustrating cases of missed potential I've ever seen.
    I don't hate the characters, I don't even mind the whole "family" aspect that they're trying to do. But I just don't care about them either, since there's no real conflicts outside of Eli occasionally disagreeing with the Playa/Boss. Eli's the smart business-type that'd rather go legit judging by some minor dialogue so they could've had him try and secretly buy out the Saints empire in his name, they could've given Kevin some inner conflict due to being part of a commie techno-cult, they could have even introduced some minor conflicts between him and Neenah since they were both from different gangs, but they just don't do anything with them. I liked the old gang from SR1 and 2 but it's not like I hate these new characters because they aren't them, but it's just that they don't really have anything going on. We really don't go through any hard times or interesting with these characters, compared to Johnny's relationship with Aisha, Carlos's death, or learning about Julius and Benjamin King.
    And it's because the game just doesn't really have any stakes after the first act, outside of the last mission. They had a genuinely good workable premise, assuming you can ignore the bad dialogue, of the MC being part of a private military company, then fired after already struggling to make ends meet and going deep to a life of crime. They had the opportunity to take inspiration from many gangs that you see featured in Vice docs on Youtube like young people joining cartels, the growing true crime research in recent years, shit they could even take inspiration from Mafia's 1 and 2 of how people get into organized crime. But they don't really do that or anything. After the first act that all goes out the window and it just doesn't have the growing stakes or structure the first two games had.

      Continuing with my autism rant
      You know how in SR 1 and 2 you could tackle gangs in any order and how each gang was like it's own "arc"? They don't really do that here, its more of SR3's messy storytelling, but arguably worse because there's no feeling like you're conquering the city and putting the pressure on, there's hardly any interactions with rival gang bosses or cutscene jumps where the actors can really steal the show and really make you look forward to the next mission. The Nahuali is the most developed antagonist in this game but even then his reason for turning on you is silly, because he wants friends he basically turns on you and tries to leave you for dead, trying to live your life.
      And it's frustrating because beyond the bugs the gameplay actually feels to have some effort. The city of Santa Ileso is genuinely good and they bring back the colorful environments badly missing from the series since SR1 and 2. There's some decent district variety (not as much as SR2's Stilwater) but its a huge step up over 3 and only the downtown district being any interesting/not copypasted. Customization is better over SR3 in terms of clothing options, guns, and you can really tweak individual difficulty options which is legit great and could be a bandaid fix for the damage sponges returning from SR3/4. Wingsuiting around Santa Ileso is also fun, but the side missions vary wildly in terms of fun factor, even though they try to give you interesting rewards outside of XP/clothing with the occasional odd cool weapon/perk. And it has the SR3 problem where the world isn't open out of the gate compared to SRs 1/2, you gotta progress the story to unlock more side content.
      I don't hate it but it's just a 5-6/10 game and it's me being generous. Because there's potential but Volition deliberately played it too safe. Not worth paying for in its current state, but a huge improvement over Agents of Mayhem at least since I at least beat it.

    character customization seems more pointless now because all the dialogue was clearly written with a black female lead in mind. making a grisly old white guy and seeing him go "YAAAAAAAAAS QUEEN" is just off-putting. Were the previous games like this?

    it was made by people who probably never played saints row in their lives or they detest what the series is. for design and technical issue, it's the writing that completely misses the point. as if someone decided to make a parody of saints row, but thought they were nailing it perfectly. just comparing the swearing from the first game and this reboot hammers that point home.

      A friend also described it as a game made by people who don't play games. I found it be like they were following just a check list of things but not understanding why.
      >People like the physics and things like the insurance job
      >Okay so cars explode if you touch them and we have a dedicated smash button
      The guns also all feel like shit, I could understand the Marshall guns being pew pew futuristic but how does the shotgun have the same amount of force as the starting pistol?

      Actually the world is the one redeeming factor it’s kind of like Las Vegas I think, steel port was a shitty world in some really fun games

      I think it would be redeeming if it wasn't so empty. For a small world, it really lacks details or even a variety enough of NPCs. Trying to get one of the photos done,I had 2 npcs saying the same lines at me with the same head.

      don't forget the game is glitchy as hell.

        QA almost always gets the raw deal as doing nothing, but the truth is deadlines are so tight devs are perfectly aware of the reported issues and simply don't have the time to fix them.

      It's calculated corporate risk. There's not a single AAA studio that isn't part of one of the three (or two, can't keep track of all the acquisitions and mergers going on right now) conglomerate video game corporations. They have zero, in fact negative incentive to take any risk whatsoever. What moves units highest and fastest? Do that until it doesn't work anymore. That's all the thought that goes into it now.

      I pirated the game just to see how bad the game is myself and yeah, pretty much all the complaints are true.
      the gameplay really is that fucking bad. it just boggles my mind at how much of a step back they took with this game.
      there are so many open world games out right now that they could have just copied from but nope. im convinced the people who worked on this game have never made a game before and were just "fans" of open world game.
      its like that one shitty movie where their selling tagline is "from the producers who saw shrek".
      literally the same vibe with this game.
