Everybody Walk The Dinosaur
HIGH The ‘deleted scenes’ premise and the stellar ending.
LOW The gameplay in the missions is kinda lame.
WTF The whole thing.
While the Saints Row franchise has always been irreverent and over-the-top, those who only see it as crazy are selling the series (and its developers) short.

Looking for deep cuts, DC-style
HIGH Is that over 30 different Batmen?

Get to the Bottom of This
HIGH Compact, content-rich design.
LOW It takes just a hair too long to get teleportation.

HIGH Pulling off a long combo string, ending in a flashy execution.
LOW The gigolo missions, the level design… most of it, really.

Partly Cloudy, with a Chance of Thunder
HIGH Serene setting and a welcome thematic change. The more complex puzzles actually challenge players to think.
LOW Some levels present no challenge whatsoever. Mechanical precision using imprecise controls is necessary to execute some solutions.
WTF Getting struck by lightning makes a seed jump?

Putting Down Roots
HIGH The soothing, low tension early stages.
LOW When the physics don't work as advertised, leading to multiple stage retries.
WTF There's no rewind feature to undo minor mistakes?

I was chatting with the wife the other day about the Nintendo 3DS and it sort of struck me that its most prominent draw, the 3D, is a feature that goes TOTALLY UNUSED by my entire family, and most of the people I know. Instead, the thing that I find myself most occupied with (apart from the slew of fantastic games we’ve been getting lately) is the StreetPass feature.

WTF Purple tentacles grow from the ground and smack you in the face.
