Radar Reacts: First Saints Row IV details!

We've known that Saints Row IV was in the works, but we didn't know anything about it. Would it be a current-gen game? Would it come out this year? Would it feature the President of the United States fighting aliens? Turns out, the answer to all of those things was yes. Here's our first reaction.

When news breaks, you can count on GamesRadar to bring it to you right away. But there's more than the news--with Radar Reacts we go over what it means, what we think, and what we think it means. Check it out, and let us know in the comments what you think about the biggest news stories, and we'll be here to answer your questions.

    Honestly, would like to see the game take a new direction: somebody from another gang rising up to challenge the Saints. Could be a past gang, could be your own custom gang, whatever. The over the top stuff wasn't bad at first, but the series not only jumped the shark at this point, it pulled out a rocket launcher on the way over and blew the shark up. That said, I found the game to be a ton of fun if you were just running around and blowing things up and beating pedestrians to be a ton of fun.

    Hmm. Loved Saint's Row The Third, but this is honestly too soon. It's a huge open-world game, those take time, and the city itself was kinda dull in 3. Furthermore the last game I can think of that was DLC/an expansion which became a full sequel rushed to market because of publisher pressure on the developer was Dragon Age II. And that destroyed Bioware's reputation forever, and almost killed the franchise. and was s***.

    Saints Row the Third was fun, but I played the heck out of it (all achievements unlocked)... and I kind of got to a point where I realized the game was mostly just fun in two situations: you're doing one of the set pieces or you're causing insane trouble with a friend. Everything about it was built to be over the top, and it got a bit old... especially because Steelport, despite having an entire island full of zombies, just isn't a fun city. Most sandbox games, there's a lot of memorable landmarks, in Saints Row 2 there's your safehouses, the statue, and the airport. That's about it.
