Since the release date in 2013, gamers immediately knew what they are dealing with. Tell me, where else are you going to find another third-person shooter in which one of main weapons is a dubstep gun? Sounds crazy, don’t you think? However, if you know the series you should not be surprised at all by such things. It is normal for the Saints Row series.

Characters and storyline
The storyline of the Saints Row 4 is even more crazy than in Saints Row 3. The main character, is a president of United States. It was a present from citizens to you. After all, you saved the world from a nuclear holocaust. Five years have passed since your presidency started and you are a very capable leader. Now you have to protect the United States of America from an alien invasion (told you it is really crazy).
You have to save the country from a new enemy which is the Zin empire. The huge variety of characters is one of the main strengths of the Saints Row 4. First you have the main protagonist who matured between events of SR3 and SR4. He is actually a decent guy. Shaundi became quite a smart and quick witted person. She is your guard and she is very good at it. Pierce is as always trying to use his brains to gain your appreciation. Then there is Zinyak. A crazy, alien warlord who wants to destroy you. All of these characters are crazy, and memorable at the same time.
