Why are some fans not happy with the new reboot?
Saints row is one of the most famous adventure game series among gamers. After the release of the trailer, the game got mixed reactions from the gaming community. Some fans are excited about the new exciting characters. A lot of purple colors is used in the game. The action scenes and graphics look amazing. The map is even better and more diverse than the previous game. But some fans are not happy with the new reboot.
A large chunk of fans is not happy with the fact that no character (other than the boss) is returning from the previous game. They were expecting the original characters to return to the game. Some fans were expecting the game to be similar to Saints Row 2. Despite the awesome map and extra customization now available, fans are missing the old characters of the previous game in the series. According to one fan, the game could be the next big thing in 2022. But, it probably won’t be able to compete against the hyped games released in 2022 like Dying Light 2.
