Saints Row on Mac

Saints Row is a video game in the action-adventure genre that is released as a reboot of the Saints Row series. The game puts you in the shoes of a gang boss and lets you roam around the streets of Santo IIeso, wreaking havoc and fighting your way to becoming the criminal ruler of the fictional American Southwest. Just like in the old series, this game is all about chaos and crime, however, the reboot comes with a completely new look and feel. So, don’t expect that this Saints Row will be like the Saints Row of old. What you’ll find in this game is a whole new story, setting, and protagonists, in addition to a new city that awaits to be explored.

Saints Row (Mac) 

What Saints Row impresses with is a detailed open world, great action, and the way the main story is being told in a fun-spirited tone. So, in order to get the most enjoyment out of the game, we think it’s best to see it as a standalone piece that shares the series’ general vibe.

Three criminal gangs (Lost Panteros, The Idols, and Marshall Defense Industries) control different parts of the city and deal with fast cars, high-tech weaponry, clubs, and nightlife. You play as “The Boss”, a former member of Marshall Defense Industries who creates a new gang out of the dissatisfied members of the existing gangs and tries to overpower them.

Saints Row (Mac) 

The city is divided into nine different districts, some of which are more rural and rundown, like Rancho Providencio, while others, such as El Dorado and Monte Vista, are more urban and upmarket, like Las Vegas. In keeping with previous Saints Row games, the player will attempt to seize control of these areas in order to reap their rewards. What’s new in the reboot is that the player now has the option to use empty lots in safe districts to set up legal-looking businesses that funnel money into the gang’s coffers.  Another new touch is that the driving mechanics have been reworked to give you some new ways of using cars, in addition to the guns you have.

Saints Row (Mac) 

In this line of thinking, the game offers some exciting car combat, with features like the ability to sideswipe enemies and climb to the roof of your car for a better shooting angle. The weapon selection is generous and straightforward to use, and melee animations include kicking enemies in the genitals and stuffing grenades down their trousers.

Some of the optional tasks that you may want to take on involve pulling a mobile meth lab out of a trailer park, leaving nasty reviews at local businesses, and surviving the firefight that follows.

Character customization

Personalizing your Saints Row character has never been more feature-packed or detailed as it is in this reboot. The player can customize their in-game persona down to every detail with the help of a comprehensive character creator. You may select from a wide range of customizable traits, some of which are very bizarre.

In a summary, the game focuses on establishing and expanding your criminal organization while competing with the other criminal gangs for control of territory, resources, and power. Guns, cars, thrill, and fraud – everything you know and love about Saints Row is here, with a few modern touches added.

Can you play Saints Row on Mac?

Yes, you can play the rebooted Saints Row on Mac. Regrettably, there isn’t an official MacOS version of Saints Row, so those of you who want to play the game on their Macs will have to resort to workarounds.

Below you will see short instructions for both programs but if you need more help, you can click on the detailed guides linked after the instructions.
