The 10 best cars in Saints Row

Exploring the world of Santo Ileso is more fun with a flashy car. Its dusty streets are littered with incredible vehicles, all of which can be customized to fit your particular taste. Each one also features unique stats (Max Speed, Performance, Durability, Off-Road), along with a Signature Ability that can be unlocked to further alter its playstyle. But no matter how much cash you pump into a car, there are some that will always perform better than the competition.

If you’re looking to get around Saint Ileso quickly and in style, here are the 10 best cars in Saints Row to add to your garage.

With one of the best Max Speed stats in all Saints Row, the Attrazione is the car for you if you like to go fast. It’s also got a sleek, supercar look — with smooth angles and an Infinite Boost Signature Ability to go with it. Steer clear of the Attrazione if you’re going off-road, but otherwise, there’s a lot to love about this luxurious speedster.

Santo Ileso is surrounded by miles of desert, and the Bullpup is the best way to explore all those sand dunes. Its Off-Road stat is unparalleled, and it boasts surprisingly great Max Speed and Performance stats. That means whether you’re on pavement or dirt, the Bullpup handles much better than you’d expect. The suspension is a bit springy (so be prepared to bounce around when crashing into objects), but that’s a small price to pay for such versatility.

The Ethel isn’t exactly a “great” car, but it’s easily one of the coolest-looking retro vehicles you can add to your garage. All of its stats are middle of the pack, but no doubt its slick exterior more than makes up for the shortcomings.

Fer de Lance

The Fer de Lance is the counterpart to the Attrazione. It looks much more aggressive but offers nearly identical stats. Instead of the Infinite Boost Signature Move, however, you get the Jump skill — which lets you jump over traffic or dodge incoming enemies without breaking a sweat.


The Hammerhead in a garage in Saints Row.

If you’re looking for a retro muscle car, look no further than the Hammerhead. Easily found in the neighborhoods surrounding the Saints headquarters, the Hammerhead is a great early-game addition to your roster of vehicles. It takes a few minutes to get up to speed — and its corning ability isn’t the greatest — but once you get it barreling down the highway, it’s nearly impossible to stop.


The MDI in a garage in Saints Row.

The MDI-525C can move pretty fast for its size and is designed to withstand an absolute beating. Those chunky tires also make it easy to handle while off-road, although it’s not quite up to par with the Bullpup. However, its combination of durability and speed makes it a worthy addition to your garage.


The Peacemaker in a garage in Saints Row.

Since the Peacemaker is often used as a police vehicle in Saints Row, it should come as no surprise that it’s both durable and agile. In fact, the car can practically be used as a battering ram to obliterate other vehicles in a single hit. Off-road performance is impeccable, too, making this one of the best sedans in the entire game.


The Phoenix in a garage in Saints Row.

If the Hammerhead was Saints Row’s retro muscle car, the Phoenix is its modern muscle car. Great in a straight line and built to outrun the competition, the Phoenix is a sleek and speedy car that’s easily found throughout most of Santo Ileso.


The Raycaster in a garage in Saints Row.

The Raycaster is arguably one of the top three best cars in Saints Row. With sleek angles and a swooping hood, it looks incredibly stylish while hurling down the dusty streets. Its Max Speed stat rivals the Fer de Lance and Attrazione, although Durability and Off-Road stats leave much to be desired. Rounding out the package is the Ejector Seats Signature Ability — which is even more awesome than it sounds.


The Saguaro in a garage in Saints Row.

It’s a Jeep — minus the poor reliability ratings. Incredible off-roading, an eye-catching exterior, and plenty of customization options make the Saguaro an easy recommendation for players just starting to build out their garage.

The best perks in Saints Row
Saints Row player shooting at enemies from the top of a car.

The new Saints Row isn't trying to reinvent the wheel or create a new genre we haven't seen before. Rather, the goal is to put its own, unique spin on things. Most notably, it takes the modern third-person open-world genre and adds in its own brand of off-the-wall antics, plus a cast of distinct characters, to create its own flavor of mayhem. Aside from your traditional shooting, driving, and incredibly deep level of customization for your vehicles, weapons, and main character's appearance, you also have a light RPG mechanic of equipping perks.

Perks come in different forms and will unlock as you progress through the various missions and activities available to you in Saints Row. There are quite a few of them, and each offers different bonuses and buffs that can make your Boss a force to be reckoned with. That said, if you want to know which ones are worth your time to create an almost overpowered character, which is kind of the point of this game, then you'll want to take notes on the best perks you can get in Saints Row.

Dead Island 2 supports experimental Amazon Alexa voice controls
A screamer yells on a beach in Dead Island 2.

Dead Island 2 was the final announcement of Gamescom Opening Night Live, and it made a solid first impression with its cinematic and gameplay reveal that highlighted a zombified Los Angeles. But did you know Dead Island 2 also features Amazon Alexa voice controls?
Shortly after Dead Island 2's announcement, Amazon unveiled Alexa Game Control via a developer blog. With Alexa Game Control, players can say specific phrases to trigger in-game interactions. Supported phrases for Dead Island 2 span weapon swapping ("Swap to my best weapon."), navigating ("Where is the nearest workbench?"), and gaining the attention of enemies ("Hey, zombie!"). Alexa Game Control will work for North American players who speak English when it launches alongside Dead Island 2. 

Interestingly, Alexa Game Control won't require players to own an Echo device or say "Hey, Alexa" beforehand. Players can just say these phrases right into the headset they are using to play the game. Two caveats exist: The Verge confirmed that players will have to be connected to the internet, and Alexa Game Control's website says that players will have to connect their Amazon account to the game they're playing first. Dead Island 2 is the only game to support the technology, but Amazon has a form for interested developers to fill out. 
I can't help but think back to the Kinect days and how developers poorly added voice functionality to games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I then recalled my playthrough of Ryse: Son of Rome a couple of years back, where the Kinect voice-driven sections stood out like a sore thumb and could be circumvented with a button press. Voice-driven video game controls haven't worked out thus far, but Alexa Game Control is attempting to bring it back into fashion. I'm curious to see whether it will enhance Dead Island 2 or add nothing substantial to the experience.
We'll be able to see if Alexa Game Control lives up to its promises soon, as Dead Island 2 will be released for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on February 3, 2023.
