Agents of Mayhem (AoM) was defiantly an interesting title to play. It was quite refreshing to play something that took a lot of its inspiration from the 80's and 90's cartoons and action movies i watched growing up. With its over the top action scenes, seemingly endless waves of enemies and cringe worthy dialogue you would expect from those old shows mixed in with pop-culture references and movie quotes.
Since Saints Row 4, Volition and Deep Silver have been a bit quiet. What started out as a gang spin off of Grand Theft Auto ended up with a totally unique identity of its own. The Saints Row series allowed us to do crazy things and all with a hint of nostalgia, whether it be unique flavoured outfits or great use of 80's music.
Now it seems Volition are back with a spiritual successor Agents of Mayhem that looks to build on what they had before. To me it looks like Saints Row looked at Crackdown and was like, some of that please. Oh and lets capitalise on the whole Marvel Avengers group thing, except lets through in some TV references to The A-Team and Knight rider.
