I wasn't aware, but why hasn't he uploaded it then?
Game's too cringe to bear?
And as a sidenote, this is one of the finest cars in the game, too bad driving is so boring.

That wasn't really necessary Mcthieve. Speedfreak has expressed intentions to return to Saints Row and get any new vehicles that come about as part of dlcs.

Almost like a self fulfilling profecy, I was the one who decided to take the bullet and post pics of that car.
Without mods the front looks closer to a 1980 Country Squire while the back is fully recycled from the '66 Vista Cruiser.

|Place-Holder wroteI agree with this as someone who has tried his hardest to enjoy the game.|

I don't think it's so much game critics but fans of the series as a whole. It doesn't help when the developers would actively attack fans and call them terrorists. The game itself is pretty mediocre. Every fun concept is transplanted from an old Saints Row game (but usually done worse), the story is so boring that most people tend to forget that important things like the Codex and the actual gameplay is horrible (bad aiming physics, the takedowns being how you restore health, the pointless skills).
About the only thing this game has going for it is the game world. But as a reboot of a beloved franchise, it's actively a spit in the face of all those who came before it. Heck Volition couldn't even honor their agreement with Idol Ninja in regards to the Saints Row 2 PC patch.

Well, I'm not most people. It's my opinion and I don't think it's as bad as everyone says it s.
Is it disappointing? Sure, but I feel like all the criticism is lauded by a bunch of elitist reactionaries that dismiss anything that isn't The Last of Us or Elden Ring.
But again, how can I express a different opinion without being hounded by the mob of people trying to either ignore me or shun me for wrongthink?
This is why I hate game critics.
|I think most people agree this game is terrible. It was such a failure that Embracer no doubt lost money on it but have also even re-evaluated the ways games get greenlit for development.|

But that's not what I kept hearing. Ever since the trailer, practically everyone slammed the game for being "woke" just because it doesn't have dildo bats or whatever.
And I get it, the new characters are far removed from what we know from Saints Row, though honestly I felt the exact same way when The Third brought in a wrestler, a geeky hacker girl, and large Russian man with genetic clones.
But I was willing to forgive that because the game was still fun.
And while it may have it's fans (and still might, after everyone unanimously hates the 2022 reboot), I can't stand Saints Row IV. After it introduced aliens,I clocked out faster than everyone cringed once the reboot mentioned "brunch" in a cutscene.
Though honestly, I'd still take the reboot over SR4 because at least the city felt like a city and a visual eyesore pretending to be a Matrix parody. It also makes better use of vehicles as IV made cars obsolete when you could super sprint and glide everywhere. I'd gladly take a wingsuit over actual flying powers anyday.
Also, monster trucks here actually have a purpose rather than feeling like an afterthought like they were in IV, which felt like pointless unlocks.
|TomboyTanner wroteYeah, but the story and characters still suck and the game play is hit or miss.|
