Similar to Grand Theft Auto if it didn't take itself so seriously, these games are ludicrous, over-the-top, open-world action games. That not only means that in Saints Row IV: Re-elected you can go wherever you like, but there's probably something fun to do when you get there, be it a race, a gunfight, a challenge to your reflexes, or a collectible to, well, collect. But the addition of superpowers makes these games twice as fun, since you can now run like the Flash, jump like the Hulk, and blow away your enemies like Deadpool. What's also fantastic is that there's loads of additional content for players to dive into here, thanks to the inclusion of 25 downloadable game packs. Saints Row has always been known to have wild, over the top outfits, but now, you can wear pirate outfits, fight your way through a virtual prison, and find yourself in other crazy situations.
Though the game is fun, it's also got some issues. Being superpowered, for instance, sometimes makes individual fights way too easy. You also end up doing the same things over and over, which makes it best played in small doses. Another thing that players should be aware of, especially if they're playing the Nintendo Switch version, is that the Joy-cons aren't as accurate as you would need them to be during hectic firefights. The best suggestion is to only play this game with the Pro controller, because otherwise you'll feel like you're constantly fighting to maneuver your character. If you can overlook these problems though, and you're looking for a mature, snarky adventure, Saints Row IV: Re-elected should get your vote.
