5Saints Row IV
A rather disparate entry from LEGO City Undercover, Saints Row 4 is definitely not family-friendly. I mean, unless you’d be comfortable with your kid running around a digital city, waving around a giant, floppy dildo and beating enemies with it. Thought not.
The latest in the Saints Row series from Volition, 4 is by far the most enjoyable and most polished of the franchise. It’s a game purely for folks who don’t take themselves too seriously, packed full of irreverent humour, a crazy storyline that involves you playing as The President of the USA (a much better one than Trump, too), and a lot of alien abductions.
If you’ve played a Saints Row game before, then you know exactly what to expect, complete with the one and only Johnny Gat and the crazy giant cat, Professor Genki. It’s packed full of wacky missions to complete, gives you the ability to jump and glide through the air like a superhuman maniac, and will have you chuckling from start to finish. You can’t ask for much more than that.
Well, unless you’ve not got a sense of humour – then you may want to give this one a miss.
Saints Row 4 lets you play online with a friend, too. All story and side missions can be played in online co-op, making the ridiculousness even more crazy. It may be a few years’ old by now, having released originally on Xbox 360 back in August 2013, but it’s still one of the best open world games out there.
