The simulation mechanism in Saints Row 4 enhances your abilities beyond natural. Like controlling the minds of others, super sprinting, and super jumping. Along with these things, the combat abilities are also greatly enhanced.
It does feel like Prototype sometimes in terms of racing against cars, running along tall walls, and grabbing people to throw to them miles away. And that’s not all it has to offer as you will get more powers by progressing in the game.
Water Running Rank: Earn all silver medals in Speed Rift challenges. Data Clusters Required: 0 Function: Sprint on water.
Haste Rank: Earn all gold medals in Speed Rift challenges. Data Clusters Required: 0 Function: Maximum speed while sprinting – faster than Speed 3 upgrade.
Super sprinting does seem like a fun and cool activity to do but it can also cause you a lot of trouble if used recklessly. For example, you can knock off a cop or cop car while going for a mission which will hinder your progress. You can also kill civilians while running or damage a car to cause an explosion.
There is also a possibility that you will be caught in the explosion. So use it carefully!
It cab be bad and it can also be good. Super sprinting can help you knock down your enemies, evading pursuits, and even jacking vehicles. Smashing into enemies and pressing the corresponding buttons on your platform will perform a super beat down which is really cool.
Later in the game, you will get the ability to run along the walls. This helps you reach the rooftops more quickly but restricts the ability to gain XP by performing the wall jump combo.
