Saint's Row 4 is a disappointment compared to the 3rd

I'm about 3-4 hours in and almost every mission feels the need to complete some pointless mini game or fight a certain number of enemies or deactivate a generator. It just doesn't feel right, and there isn't much in terms of charm in the mission structure. The dialog and characters are great, but man, the missions are just dull this time around.

That's pretty much how SR3 was until the last couple of missions.

Bash your head into something until you can't remember Saint's Row 3 and 4 anymore, then play Saint's Row 2. Oh yeah, and be sure to make a note for yourself BEFORE the brain damage part never to play SR3 and 4.

SR2 is indeed awesome (played the PS3 version previously) but it won't even boot for me. I just rebuilt my whole PC, so it's definitely capable of running it, but every time I try to play it, it crashes. Makes me sad.

SR2 looks fun but it runs at hyper speed for me.

Saints Row 2 runs like crap on PC.
I'm have a GTX 760 and according to afterburner the game isn't fuly using my card, don't know why.
There's loads of stutter and frame drops.

As for Saints Row 4, I guess it makes sense since it was meant to be some sort of DLC, but yeah they've pretty much just decided to go lolwackyXD style and focused on allowing players to just go crazy. It sort of works, but eventually you'll just get bored of it.

I had done the same stuff, but thanks anyway for the help. I was able to get the speed close to comfortable, but it then made me feel motion sick.

I beat SR4 and in 28 Hours I'm sitting at ~96% Completion. All that's left is a few Challenges.

Honestly, it IS "More of the same" from SR3. To me it DOES feel like a very top-notch DLC that was padded out to make a 15-20+ game out of. It's no doubt fun, and I had a blast playing through it; But, I really felt as though it might have been better as something that followed the FC3: Blood Dragon formula. A lower-priced game that has, in this case, maybe 10-15 hours of content.

It's a really fun concept, but it's kind of hurt by the fact it's just a spinoff of SR3 turned $50 game. It's no doubt fun and all the crazy powers and abilities, paired with the typical humor you'd expect after SR3 all make it entertaining--Looking back I probably wouldn't have paid the $40 for it right off the bat.
