Details: Originally released in 2015. This is a stand alone game independent from Saints Row IV. I purchased the game for PC through Steam for $3.74. I spent about four hours playing the game.
Gat Out of Hell is standalone downloadable content for Saints Row IV, similar to how Freedom Cry was standalone DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV. That means you don’t need Saints Row IV to play this game, but it continues the story and looks the same technically.
Gat Out of Hell takes place shortly after the ending of Saints Row IV. The Saints are hanging out when the devil himself kidnaps the leader of The Saints and takes him to hell to marry the devil’s daughter. Johnny Gat and Kinzie go to hell to get the leader back and defeat the devil.
Visually, the game has more new stuff to look at than Saints Row IV. It’s still based off the old Saints Row IV map I think, but it looks different enough.
Gameplay is the same as Saints Row IV. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to re-earn your superpowers instead of keeping whatever superpowers you had before. It makes sense story wise and the powers are sort of different than the powers in Saints Row IV. I also like that they made the orb collectibles actually give something rather than having the collectible data clusters in Saints Row IV which didn’t do anything.
Overall, I really enjoyed Gat Out of Hell. It’s a corny, cheesy, over the top story, but it was still fun. I don’t know if its worth the price I paid, but if you can get it for cheap and you sort of enjoy the Saints Row franchise, this is a good buy.
