Saints Row (2022 Video Game)

What Is It?

The 2022 action-adventure video game Saints Row (2022) / Fake Row / Gen Z Row / Hipster Row / Cringe Row developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver, it is a fake reboot of the real Saints Row series; and it is the fifth game in the franchise, but I will treat it like it is not part of the franchise.

Here is how Metacritic describes this fake Saints Row & sorry excuse of a video game:

Welcome to Santo Ileso, a vibrant fictional city in the heart of the American Southwest.

In a world rife with crime, where lawless factions fight for power, a group of young friends embark on their own criminal venture, as they rise to the top in their bid to become Self Made.

As the future Boss, with Neenah, Kevin, and Eli by your side, you’ll form The Saints and take on Los Panteros, The Idols, and Marshall as you build your empire across the streets of Santo Ileso and battle for control of the city.

Ultimately, Saints Row is the story of a start-up company, it’s just that the business The Saints are in happens to be crime.

Experience the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created; the unique sprawling world of Santo Ileso is the backdrop for a wild, larger than life sandbox of thrilling side hustles, criminal ventures and blockbuster missions, as you shoot, drive, and wingsuit your way to the top.

Express yourself and unleash your inner Saint, with the most advanced suite of customization tools yet seen in an open-world game, make your character, your car, and your crew your own.

Dive into epic gunfights and high speed chases, and witness outrageous only-in-Saints-Row moments in an original story that charts the Saints’ remarkable rise to power.

Enjoy the freedom of playing the entire campaign with a friend through seamless untethered co-op play, where you can both push the limits of your gang and create your own gameplay moments together.

My Thoughts

Do not waste your money on this buggy, unfinished, souless, fake, cringy, goofy, stupid, overpriced, poorly written & voice acted & designed et cetera video game.

This video game is not a Saints Row video game, there is only one Saints Row which is Saints Row (2006) and the other real Saints Row games in the series like Saints Row 2; so naming this video game Saints Row is an insult, a disgrace, and it does not deserve that name.

This game is so bad that it seems like it was an intentional troll to kill the Saints Row franchise and to attack the Saints Row fans.

This video game seems like it was made by new never made a video game before cringy hipster Gen Z (Generation Z, Zoomer, et cetera) video game developers who did not know and / or like the Saints Row franchise, and decided to ignore what the Saints Row fans wanted & ignore the actual Saints Row franchise, and made a video game for themselves in their own cringy image.

This game lacks important basics of the Saints Row franchise that I like, such as: you can not have your gang members follow you, there are no cribs, it lacks some of the automobiles that were in every Saints Row, it lacks the better healing systems of the previous games, and much more.

Only your friends can follow you, and they are empty husks who rarely say anything, and their AI is terrible; and they usually die in combat without you realizing it because of the terrible easy to miss downed ally warning.

There is so much that I could say about this video game, but I will not waste my time listing most of it.

Even after all the current patches, this video game was still buggy, so much so that it made finishing the game difficult; and some side missions are still broken to where I do not get some of my rewards like the long sword skin.

Unlike most people, I tried to complete all the side missions et cetera before completing the main missions, so I have done most of what this video game offers before I completed the main story.

There are still a few side things that I have to finish until I am 100% complete with everything in this game.

This game and its story and the main characters do not make sense, and the writing / dialogue is so bad & cringy & vapid that you do not even know basic details about them & their relationships et cetera.

The gangs and enemy factions are the same, you do not know much about them, if anything.

Instead of wasting my time listing all my thoughts on this video game, watch one or all of the three videos above, they cover most of it.

This is the worst and most disappointing video game that I have played this year, so far, and it is not even worth $20; and it is not worth your time.

If you do want to try this game, get it for free or for under $20 if you can, and play it in co-op mode because this game is an empty souless husk unless you play it with someone else.

The end,
