Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell gameplay first impressions

Review time is nearly upon us, but we got the game a bit later than expected. Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is a game we're going to give a little bit more time to than the less-than-a-day we've had with it thus far - but for now, here's some gameplay to skewer your eyeballs with.

The game has earned itself a fair bit of criticism recently over its premise, which is largely senseless violence for the sake of violence (aka, hatred).
