Man, seeing the collapse of Volition and the Saints Row franchise sure is depressing. Saints Row reboot has been 7 years in the making with their A team and it is getting lower reviews than their previous game developed by their B team, Agents of Mayhem, which as we all know, flopped hard (we're talking $5 in a bargain bin in less than a year flop). After 2 big flops in a row, I won't be surprised at all if Embracer closes the studio. 

Volition only has themselves to blame for their demise though, they could have gone with the reboot of the series with the main cast that one of Gat out of Hell's endings teased, or followed up on the time-travel ending of Saints Row 4, but instead they gave us this reboot with an all-new cast that everybody hates, and then self-censored themselves with things like the removal of the series mainstay dildo bat and name changes to Rim Jobs and Freckle Bitches. Now we're seeing reviews with titles like "Grand Theft Adequate", because they drained away the soul of the franchise and went back to making mid tier GTA clones.

I may have to go drown my sorrows with a 3rd replay of Saints Row 3 or a 5th replay of Saints Row 4. 



Some Reviewers will be late with the game because it has some major bugs (like losing the ability to shoot/Jump) Loading last saves or earlier saves don't fix the bugs.

Sorry was an inside joke because  they were trying it to make it PC/woke friendly and basically making it a selling point.

It's apparently very buggy and broken, otherwise it would be probably at least a 70 metascore instead of the 63 it got for the PS5 version.



So far that is a bit worse than I was expecting. From the gameplay shown I was thinking it would end up in the low 70s. But mid to high 60's is not good. I'll probably pick it up once it is 50% or more off to play with friends. Well I am assuming it has co-op.

That seems to be one of the biggest issues. ACG said he had to reload the game 21 times which would be a deal breaker for a lot of people interested.

Holy shit. That's ridiculous. Was it really in development for 7 years?
