I'm not complaining it took a weird route. I don't think I would have gotten Saints Row 3 otherwise. I just thought it was funny that they did take a weird route like this considering the subject matter in the first 2 games.
I'm not sure what to think of Saints Row 4 right now. So far I'm a little disappointed. I thought they were going to do a little more with the whole being President angle. Instead were...spoilers...
Yeah, the president theme seems kinda pointless at this point (about 4 hours into the game). Surprised you get the powers so early into the game, it pretty much makes weapons/vehicles/crew members useless. Really fun playing co-op and there's a lot of laughs to be had (romance the geeky chick on the ship if you haven't, funny stuff), but if I were playing this single player I'd probably be a bit disappointed as well because many of the features in the game feel pointless.
