If ''Crazy, wild and stupid in a good way'' would be a genre, Saints row series would probably be the best game to describe it.

Fun game, not amazing, but it has a silly campaign and some of the vehicles are pretty cool. Enjoyed escaping cops and the military.

The Game is very good. It's an Open-world action game that bears a lot of Resemblance to GTA V. Characteristic Is its trashy plot, so overwrouded that it is arguably somehow good again. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1558214682 The namesake gang, the Saints, now famous, want to bring the City Of Steelport under their Control this time. In doing so, they get into their Hair with a powerful Syndicate of three Gangs and have yet to arrive against STAG, a military Organization to Fight Crime. The Player is a Member of the Saints, few others of whom can be seen, notably Johnny Gat and Shaundy. Over Time, more Individuals are added, taking part in missions in alternating Occupation. The real Work is to be done by the Player. The Kamapgne can also be played in pairs (which I haven't tested). I'm essentially just going into Differences from the GTA V, which was released two Years later. The "special" here is the ("non-existent") Style, which is, of course, a Matter Of taste. Since you can customize your own Character, everything is already possible here, from "normal" to extravagant to absurd (Bishop, Alien, ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ etc.). In the Third-person perspective of the Game, you always have your Eyes in mind. In addition to the usual weapons that look like Toys, there is also the Penetrator, a deadly ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ You also help a Pimp At Work or run naked for a "covert" Operation. In the Case of vehicles, the Game is even rather conservative, but varied. The Broom Style is one of the few funny Vehicles. The Driving Behaviour is quite good, it's Fun to explore the Area. Feinmatic Humour occurs, but the rough Humour prevails. Not everything is funny, some things I found really shamed. Still, it was entertaining. Most Tasks are simple, but there are also such (Side Missions) that were just too difficult for me. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1563394721 The Game relies heavily on the Fun Factor. It is not difficult to Get a lot of Money to buy everything Possible, such as Clothing or Ability Improvements. You only need to put vehicles in the Garage to own them. In some Missions, you hardly need to dwell on Enemies, but only have to run towards the Object of Desire. If you have the Main Campaign and a lot of Side Missions, of course, you ask yourself the question of whether and how the Game can still motivate. It's probably similar to most Open-world games: There's a lot of work to be done, but it repeats itself then. GTA-V is probably much more long-term. Technically, the Game is at a high Level, but not without Quirks. The Mission sections are strangely considered settled from time to time. Vehicles that were supposed to end up in my Garage were also gone. Most annoying, I think the Game crashed so violently several Times that it needed a Reboot of the PC. For this, the loading Time Is relatively short. The Graphics are suitably good for 2011 I think. But nothing special either. There are, of course, a lot of Clones running around and the Textures are a bit slurred. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1563383874 The Music, similar to GTA, is very important and always heard when driving a Vehicle. The Music Style is predominantly not so the one, predominantly Hip hop, gangster rap, aggresive Music. There is also, but rarely, classical or moderately rocking music. The Speakers are in English and quite OK. The Control is possible with keyboard kit mouse or controller. I used both, the former mostly for Shoot-outs, the latter mostly for Driving. There are a great Many Achievements. You have to do a lot of them. Pro & Contra: + Part over-grotesque Plot and Atmosphere + GritA-like tasks + Funny elements or events + Great Game world-Crashes-A few Glitches and Bugs (nothing bad) Rating: 9/10 The Game splays with its Vulgarity, but also offers a lot " Pretty "Gameplay. The Campaign and some around it is certainly Fun. The unpredictable Crashes cloud the Pleasure Somewhat.
