Saints Row reboot official artwork without logo

As a part of their holiday sale, the Epic Games Store has been giving away a generally interesting game every single day. Today's offering is no different, though it does somewhat break the streak of quality games as the new addition is the highly divisive Saints Row reboot.

That said, I wouldn't call Saints Row a bad game by any stretch as it's both perfectly playable and a decent bit of open world fun. The failure comes primarily from the name, as despite being called Saints Row it does very little to evoke the spirit of the first two games, or even the much wackier third and fourth ones. This, as you might imagine, makes recommending it a bit difficult.

However, it's currently entirely free, and that sort of thing does go a long way towards excusing some of the design issues. So if you have a high tolerance for problems and a fair bit of time to waste, I'd say that Saints Row is worth giving a look, if for no other reason than to see just how strange it all is. 

As always, there is a bit of a time limit with this giveaway. You only have until 4pm GMT on December 31st to grab yourself a copy, though once you've done that you'll be able to play Saints Row whenever you want.

Enjoy, and I'll leave you with the original announcement trailer:
