Saints Row IV: Re-Elected Reviews
It show its age in some details, but still is one of the funniest open world adventures out there, mixing ideas and mechanics from games like GTA, Crackdown or Prototype. It's crazy, ridiculous, hilarius and parodies lots of games. A pure madness that last more than 20 hours, optional tasks aside, with an entertaining plot and coop mode.

While I wouldn't call Saints Row IV: Re-elected "essential", it's absolutely worth a look if you like your fun loud and just a little bit irreverent.
Whether a Nintendo Switch purist or someone who uses it as their dedicated mobile device, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected for Nintendo Switch remains a stellar game worth playing if you can endure some minor performance quibbles.
The Saints' first experience on the current-gen consoles is a rousing success, with Saints Row IV: Re-Elected being one of the most fun games to release in a long time, as one can play across hours and hours of jolly mayhem.
Nothing much has changed in this pleasantly priced next-generation port, but its lunatic shenanigans are as entertaining as ever
Saints Row 4 is one of the most beloved games in the cult-classic franchise, and it works surprisingly well as a portable game with a huge fun-factor.
Saints Row: IV Re-elected on the Switch is a much-welcomed game as it runs amazing in handheld and docked mode, brings a beloved franchise to millions of gamers, and almost feels a bit naughty to have next to my Mario games. With its smooth gunplay, game mechanics that mesh well with the control scheme of the Switch, and ability to cram all of its explosive, expansive, and destructive gameplay into your hand, you cannot pass this game up.
It’s still a fun ride, but the price of admission is steep for something that a) came out seven years ago and b) doesn’t have everything in it but is still charging more for it. The choice is yours, but I would wait until we get a price drop that is equal to the other versions of this game.
It's rude, it's crude, and until Rockstar decides to port something better than LA Noire over or Sucker Punch stops being a Sony studio, it is the most fun you're going to have in an open world crime or mayhem type game on the Switch.
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected comes with all of that fantastic, over the top DLC with insane weapons, new story missions, and tons of cosmetic options.
Saints Row IV Re-Elected comes to the Nintendo Switch many years after the launch of the original version, but it certainly is a valid option for anyone looking for an excessively exaggerated and over the top open world action game. Unfortunately the conversion proves to be anything but flawless, even if the many technical issues don't undermine the overall gaming experience.

Love it or hate it, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected's obsession with the ridiculous is what sets it apart from the rest of the market, and the PS4 re-release is the best way to experience the madness. Coupled with extra expansions (including Gat Out of Hell if you buy the bundle), there's plenty of value to the package, even if it doesn't take the opportunity to build upon the PS3 original. A blast from start to finish, the president's tale of vengeance is the stupidest fun that you can have on Sony's newest console, and we mean that in the best possible way.
Saints Row IV Re-Elected is a bumper bundle of joy whichever way you want to cut it. Anyone in possession of a last-gen copy need not upgrade though as there is no significant upgrade in technical terms to warrant a re-purchase on these grounds. For those new to it, you're in for a treat.
"Saint's Row IV is an important game, because it ignores convention in order to be insanely fun – emphasis on the "insane""
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is raunchy, hectic, incredible superpowered fun. It's not quite as good as its predecessor, but it's absolutely still worth a go.
While Saints Row the Third proved a more inconsistent port – mainly because it was a much older game – Saints Row IV: Re-Elected fares far better with better performance, minimal input lag and a refreshingly solid output in handheld mode. It's gunplay is always going to be messy and its unashamed sense of humour will undoubtedly offend some, but having such an activity rich experience running so well on your handheld console isn't to be sniffed at. And with so much extra content available in the Re-Elected package, Switch players have another long-term investment on their hands.
Waiting to find out Volition's plans for Chapter V (of which we will know more within the year, word of THQ Nordic), fans can return to wreak havoc on the streets where the Saints built their name even in convenient portable mode.

The Saints Row series isn't renowned for the outstanding performances of its 3D engine but the Switch version of the game is the final straw, specifically in portable mode : aliasing, tearing and visuals bugs are still there. We can't say the same about the standalone Gat out of Hell. However, the game is still really fun to play.

A love letter to where it came from and an advancement of its best ideas into something bigger, more cohesive, and infinitely more fun.
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is a middling port that mixes thoroughly entertaining gameplay with the odd technical issue, including an imperfect frame rate. Those who love the series and can overlook the odd issue should still pick it up, but technophiles will likely want to stay clear.
