Renowned for its lunacy and open-world gameplay, Saints Row: The Third was the game that transitioned the series from “kinda crazy” to full-on “hey we’ve got a dildo bat and gimps” levels of ridiculousness. Following that rambunctious circus act less than two years later, Saints Row IV‘s intentions seem clear: crank the insanity up to twelve and deliver an even stupider package covered in the Saints’ iconic purple hue. However, ratcheting up the zaniness has caused the lever to rebound and swing back in the opposite way.
