Saints Row: Video game ‘Saints Row’ receives poor reviews. Find out fans’ views

‘Saints Row’, an action-adventure video game has received poor reviews. The reboot of the Saints Row series has been described as dull. Here are some of the opinions of readers.

Our reader writes, “I know I shouldn’t have been surprised given Games Central’s preview, but I’m still stunned at how poorly Saints Row has been received. It currently has a Metacritic score of 63, and I can’t recall the last time a big game received such a low rating from all reviewers. Usually, I’d anticipate GC’s review to be a little critical, but it wasn’t.”

This shows that our expectations of the minimum quality standards from budget films were an illusion. But I’ve always thought of Saints Row as a major franchise. It happened back when Saints Row 2 and 3 were released. I see the game as an all-around disaster due to the poor conceptualization of the creators and the critical reviews that nailed it.

One more reader says:

Wow, from the studio that delivered us Saints Row 2, how could they get it so wrong? I’ve just seen reviews rolling in for the new Saints Row and your own 4/10 rating.

Given my experience with the Agents of Mayhem, I will not repeat the mistake with my money on the new Saints Row.

I might give it a quick shot if it appears in the PS Plus library, but for the time being, Saints Row is my last game.

A reader writes on the Lords of the Ring.

In my perspective, role-playing and strategy games are the two genres that best fit a Lord of the Rings game. Unfortunately, at the time of the movies, the sole current recreation of the game was a low-budget EA effort. Still, given that contemporary gaming environments like Dungeons & Dragons wouldn’t exist without Tolkien, we could surely do better.
