Ah, a new year, with a new round of games, and a new round of reviews. The title starting this year may not be one of the bigger titles of the year, but it is one I have been personally looking forward to since its announcement. Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell sends the player to Hell to rescue the Boss of the Saints, and President of the United States, as Satan has kidnapped them, intending to force a marriage with his daughter, Jezebel. As the Boss is obviously indisposed, you will not be playing as them, like in previous titles. Instead you get to play as either Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington, with the ability to switch at will.
Gat Out of Hell follows much the same formula of the previous games, especially Saints Row IV, which it is an immediate sequel to, although there are some important deviations that I will cover in the gameplay section. It is an open-world action game that sets you on a path to take over a city by various missions and right some wrongs committed against you and your friends. It also makes many references to the events of earlier games, and includes characters from them as well, such as Dane Vogel from Saints Row 2, and the DeWinter sisters from Saints Row The Third. Meeting old friends and enemies is one benefit of visiting the underworld, though it does help if you remember them.
Also like the games before it, Gat Out of Hell has an M rating from the ESRB for violence, blood and gore, strong language, partial nudity, and sexual themes. If the game and any of this content is inappropriate for you, chances are the review is, too.
Should we dive into Hell to save the Boss and put a bullet in Satan's head, or leave the unhappy couple to their fate? Time to find out.
