Saints Row is an open world action-adventure video game series created by Volition and now published by Deep Silver, that tells the story of a gang called the Third Street Saints, the title comes from the name of the district of the gang's home territory. Typically, gameplay is presented in an open world format because of the mixture of nonlinear gameplay with action-adventure and racing sequences. The series is well known for its comedic elements. The games' stories are written as comedies that feature popular culture homages and parodies, as well as self-referential humor.
Power of the Verse
In the earlier games Saints Row typically stayed around Wall level, with Small Building to Building levels with certain weapons and, in Saints Row the Third specifically, super powers. Saints Row IV, however, introduced multiple new powers that boost the verse as a whole to Town level and added a variety of hax abilities, such as mind manipulation, matter manipulation, and life force absorption, as well as several hax weapons such as a black hole launcher, a gun that disintegrates any matter it touches, and a gun that can summon a UFO that can BFR enemies into space. There is also a decent amount of purely destructive weaponry used by the villains of the verse, such as a nuclear warhead powerful enough to wipe the US off of the map or the Zin Mothership that atomized the Earth.
