The Saints Row series has long been called the wannabe GTA collection with similar themes and gameplay like gang wars and driving around the city looking for trouble. The developers over at Volition have clearly ensured that the two games are not to be confused.
Saints Row has created a unique and outrageous identity over the years through insane storylines, the funniest dialogues, and delivering exactly what the players want. Therefore, we decided to go over this 16-year journey and rank all the games from worst to best!
6. SAINTS ROW: GAT OUT OF HELL
Despite the cool ring to the name and wacky storyline, Gat out of Hell doesn’t impress much if you’re already familiar with the franchise. Unfortunately, a lot of potential is lost in unexplored storylines.
5. SAINTS ROW (2022)
The storyline barely covers the fact that the game is plagued with bugs that include, but are not limited to, never-ending reload animations, events not starting, and the upside-down player.
4. SAINTS ROW
Saints Row has some limitations compared to the later titles in the series. The graphics are dated, and the unmatched comedic element of its successors is unfortunately missing. It also offers a relatively small open-world environment to mess around in.
3. SAINTS ROW: THE THIRD
It’s packed with action. Where else do you get to shoot down the window of a crashing plane, fly through it while killing everyone on your way out the other end, and then freefall and catch your falling friend?
2. SAINTS ROW IV
Developers introduced superpowers this time, like running faster than trains and being able to jump higher. The witty humor and silly remarks are intact, and the characters are even more likable than before.
The storyline is structured so that it doesn’t get too much in the way of the action. It also helps give each player a unique personality and takes the time to deliver hilarious character dialogues at the right moment.
