“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. And aliens. Aliens are also a problem.”
Saints Row IV is the epic conclusion to the open world game that changed all the rules. The head of the Third Street Saints is now the leader of the free world—but it’s not all drone strikes and drunken interns. Earth has been invaded by galactic overlord Zinyak and it’s up to you, the Boss, to free your fellow Americans (and everybody else) from the virtual hell in which they’ve been imprisoned.
Use the aliens’ own arsenal against them. Suck your enemies into the void with the blackhole gun. Drive the Zin crazy with the power of dubstep. Stomp through the city in a bad-ass mech. You can also bend the rules of simulated Steelport to leap tall buildings, outrun sports cars, set aliens ablaze and fling them across the city with your mind. With new and old homies by your side, you will crush the alien threat and save the world the only way the Saints know how: massive wanton destruction.
Ask not what the Saints can do for you. Ask what the Saints can do to the Zin.

The Escapist – 5/5 – “Saints Row IV is a fantastic game, keeping up the series’ tradition of giving players a wide open world and the tools to go absolutely bonkers within it. It’s hilarious, it’s action-packed, and most of all, its fun to play.”
Joystiq – 5/5 – “Volition’s skill for building a living world, lovable characters and ingenious gameplay is as sharply honed as ever. Be it in Steelport, a computer-generated simulation thereof or the very depths of outer space, the Saints rule everywhere.”
Neoseeker – 10/10 – “I honestly haven’t enjoyed a game quite so thoroughly as Saints Row IV, nor laughed as hard at one. On that note, Saints Row IV has my vote of emphatic approval for doing what it does so well: making us laugh until we cry.”
Destructoid – 9.5/10 – “I declare Saints Row IV perhaps one of the best open world sandbox games you could ever hope to play, and practically a culmination of everything the genre’s worked toward this generation.”
Canadian Online Gamers – 94/100 – “a game that is rich and deep with personality and unmatched ridiculousness. Saints Row IV is exactly what I needed this summer. It takes everything that I love about sandbox style gaming and makes it better.”
GameFront – 9.3/10 – “Saints Row IV is all at once puerile, profane and touching, but mainly, it’s too busy being awesome for you to ever get bored. Seriously, buy this f*cking game.”
Polygon – 9/10 – “Saints Row IV made me feel superhuman — and that’s what this kind of game is all about.”
PC Gamer – 9/10 / Editor’s Choice Award – “It might not have the sheen of Grand Theft Auto, but Saints Row IV is both gloriously stupid and stupidly good.”
