Saints Row IV:How the Saints saved Christmas review

On December 10 for America and December 11 for UK. Our beloved Third Street Saints return for another action packed adventure to save Christmas in the second DLC mission pack for Saints Row 4 titled How the Saints save Christmas. Costing you $6.99 US or free if you bought the $9.99 season pass.

The content of this DLC pack consisting of 3 repayable side story missions that can be played either solo or co-cooperatively, roughly taking about an hour to complete its main story and another hour or two in order to obtain all 10 new achievements for completion.

On your adventure through a Winter version of Steel port and the North pole, you get the opportunity to kill Ginger bread cookies, robo nut crackers,evil elves, and deliver lots of presents . Overall the Story component of the DLC was short, sweet and funny with satisfying happy ending.

There's also the inclusion of 2 new Christmas themed activities that can also be played solo or cooperatively are unlocked in this DLC. One of them is a Christmas variant of heli-assault called naughty and nice it’s where you deliver presents and coals using Santa sleight.

The other one is a Genki mind over murder variant called Genki holiday special, the twist here is the targets are moving. In my opinions it was a nice inclusion of activities, But I would have to say the naughty and nice activity is my favorite, while the Genki holiday special is kind of more of a super hard mode of the Saints Row 4 Genki activity recommend teaming up with a co-op partner for this one.

bundled with a bunch of Christmas themed unlockable, making it feel like an early Christmas:

6 pieces of Christmas themed clothing and outfits

Non customizable:

sweater called Merry Xmas.

customizable:

  • Santa suit
  • Santa hat
  • Santa gloves
  • Elf suit
  • elf hat

5 non-customizable Christmas themed vehicles

  • jolly Compton
  • half baked
  • slayer
  • dasher
  • sleigh one
Simply a Christmas reskin of existing vehicle yet still nice.

1 new weapon and 2 new weapon skins

  • Xmas BB gun an assault rifle slot with a lower fire rate and medium damage when fully upgraded.
  • Northpole(base bat skin)
  • Christmas time(dub step gun skin)
All great addition to the arsenal, extract Cheers for the new Dub step gun though.

5 new homies

  • Santa
  • Clawz
  • Ginger bread man
  • Mrs. Claus
  • Future Shaundi
An excellent addition simply because watching cookies and Santa beating people up is hilarious.

verdict

even though this DLC is shorter than the last one(Enter the Dominatrix) it makes it up with a excellent story that really gets you into the Christmas Spirit, and bundling with a ton of content is surely a bonus.Overall I enjoyed every minute of this DLC and would give it a 9/10,totally recommend picking this up this holiday season.
