Your character gets super powers that can be upgraded and blah blah blah
on October 25, 2015
Okay so I beat Saints Row: The Third and moved onto this one. This game is basically where your character kills terrorists on the first mission, and kills the head terrorist that was once the STAG leader Cyrus Temple, then stop a nuclear bomb from hitting America, and you are elected the president of the United States and aliens attack the White House on the first mission. Your character gets super powers later on that can be upgraded and blah blah blah. Aliens eventually destroy Earth in the middle of the storyline, and your character goes through alot of time travels through the Saints' past as well as battling in the "Digital Simulation" of Steelport, the city from the last game. Your character eventually killed Zinyak, the alien overlord to avenge the destruction of Earth and the Saints take over the Zin Empire and call it Saints Empire.
Okay this game is pretty messed up when it comes to the storyline. But I have to admit romancing Kinzie, Asha, and Shaundi was cool- but the fact that Earth got destroyed and Zinyak could not surrender later on and reverse it is pretty stupid to me. It means the other characters from the 3rd- Oleg, Zimos, Angel and them all died?! Ugh. It's my biggest pet peeve about this game. This game is okay- it was fun and all but the storyline was 2nd degree and lazy... Saints Row the Third is better to me. Though no super powers.
The only things that I liked where the appearance of Roddy Piper, the return of Professor Genki, the weapon customization, the super powers, the romancin' (lol), CID (he's the new character I liked) the fact that Mat Miller is no longer as @ss, and the time travels.
The things I don't like is alot of the storyline, that this game is like an "add on" to Saints Row: The Third, no more Professor Genki activities (only a few in the storyline but none on the map that you can play anytime), the "Male 1" voice- they didn't change many of his lines when he gets hurt (old ones were pretty annoying), lack of graphic's improvements, and you never find out what happened to Angel, Oleg, and Zimos.
