Fantastic missions, outrageous weapons, and awesome vehicles make the open-world mayhem of Saints Row: The Third an absolute blast.
- Great assortment of vehicles and weapons with which to wreak explosive havoc
- Outrageous story missions and fun activities
- Wonderful variety of customization options
- Constantly doles out cool rewards.
- Occasional glitches.
Some games create atmospheric worlds that attempt to draw you in with moving stories about characters seeking a second chance, or cast you as troubled superheroes who push themselves to the limit to fight evil. Saints Row: The Third is not like those games. Rather, it's the kind of game that gives you weapons called apocafists with which you can punch people, instantly making them explode in a bloody mess. The Third won't impress you with knockout visuals, move you with an absorbing story, or engage you with challenging combat. What it does, better than just about any game before, is embrace the idea of an open world as a place for play, constantly giving you access to awesome new toys and providing you with no shortage of exciting opportunities to use them.
No knowledge of earlier Saints Row games is needed to jump into the insanity of The Third. Following an incredible opening sequence that involves the kind of bank heist that only the Saints can pull off, the gang is transplanted from their hometown of Stilwater to the city of Steelport. As their leader, it's up to you to lead them from upstart newcomers to rulers of the town, which means frequently coming into conflict with the local gangs, the masked Luchadores, stylish Morningstars, and Tron-inspired Deckers. Along the way, you meet some great new characters, like Oleg, a strongman so huge, he can only ride in the bed of pickup trucks and who defies expectations by being learned and philosophical. And at key moments, the action is energized by fitting uses of music; the pounding rhythms of Kanye West's "Power" make a great early set piece even more exciting, for instance, and a fun sing-along between your character and another creates feelings of warmth and camaraderie among the Saints. Occasionally, the game's "anything goes" tone goes a little too far--a mission that uses human trafficking of sex workers as a plot point to support its cartoonish mayhem is one example--but the story typically succeeds at being absurd, goofy fun.
If you choose, you can make it all the more absurd by creating a character who speaks in zombie grunts or wears an animal mascot suit (when he opts to wear anything at all). The number of character customization options is impressive, and there are no restrictions on what elements you combine. If you wish to create a blonde bombshell with a beard or a mean-looking man who sounds like a woman from Eastern Europe, you can. Seeing a man in a sexy cowgirl outfit or a woman wearing a giant Johnny Gat head in cutscenes in which everyone treats him or her as a respected gang boss is hilarious. And if you get bored with your character's current appearance, voice, or outfit, plastic surgery and clothing from the varied boutiques of Steelport cost a pittance, so you can reinvent yourself as often as you please.
This kind of freedom characterizes the entire Saints Row: The Third experience. Previous Saints Row games required you to do activities to earn enough respect to proceed to the next story mission. In The Third, you're never held back from advancing through the story, or from doing just about anything else. From the moment you arrive in Steelport, you have access to an assortment of vehicles to steal for chop shops and targets to assassinate for clients, as well as a tremendous list of challenges you can strive to complete or ignore. Many of these reward you for doing things that you might want to do for fun anyway, like streaking, vehicle surfing, driving in oncoming traffic, catching big air in cars, doing wheelies or stoppies on motorcycles, nailing basejumps, killing people in those creepy mascot outfits, and much, much more. You earn respect for just about everything you do, and as you level up, you gain access to a host of upgrades--health increases, combat abilities, the option to recruit more gang members to follow you around, and much more.
Yes, "more" is the driving philosophy of The Third--more awesome weapons, more amazing vehicles, more really fun stuff to do. The available activities include returning favorites like Insurance Fraud and Mayhem, and a number of great new pursuits. Guardian Angel puts you in a helicopter with a rocket launcher or sniper rifle to protect Saints on the ground. In Tank Mayhem, you must create a certain amount of destruction within a time limit, but you get to do it by harnessing the tremendous firepower of a tank. Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax is a reality-show gauntlet of deadly traps and deadlier enemies, in which everything is fair game, except shooting pictures of pandas, because as we all know, killing pandas is unethical. With so many opportunities to earn respect, you're totally free to do only those activities you enjoy, and ignore the rest.
One thing you definitely shouldn't ignore is the main story. Within just the first few missions, you plummet out of a plane and into an airborne shoot-out, skydive into a penthouse that belongs to a rival gang, use a UAV drone to call in guided missiles on tanks, and more. The missions eventually become a bit predictable for a while, serving as introductions to the other activities and diversions available to you in Steelport. But before long, they get wild again, packing in numerous surprises before culminating in one of two outrageous final missions. (Don't worry; after experiencing one ending, you have the option of replaying the penultimate mission and making the choice that takes you to the alternate ending.)
Funniest game I ever played in my life, no exaggeration, and I consider myself a veteran PC and console gamer. The game is definitely worth buying, and make sure that you know you're on for the most ridiculous, hilarious, and action-packed ride ever. I love this game a bit more than GTA IV, and for many reasons. I actually love the larger degree of control on cars in SRTR, and the customization options are great. In the beginning, many missions are going to be super easy for experienced first-person shooters, especially on the PC, but later on, some missions actually do require you to use your mobile, dodge charges from brutes and take cover, run around, and so on. Those missions do remind you that you gotta work for it here and there.
didnt like the game.. the idea of it was good but when i started playing it it was just terrible.. its like a bunch of wanna be gangster lil kids made the game.. its way to easy, took me 1 hour just to reach lvl 11. just seemed really childish. but other then that the graphics are good and so is the gameplay.. just isnt myy style
i don,t know how is the saints row the third is but someone say,ed that saints row the third is not fun but after watching the review i have thought that i will buy the game
Just as you think it can't get any better.. It throws not one but 10 new features, unlockables, ideas at you. Each one being original and refreshing =] Gotta love the saints
Awsome game..Was waiting for a price drop to get it and finally got it with the 50% discount Steam offered last weekend. As the review states the first couple missions are incredible and set up the chaos nicely.
Still can't play this with a playable framerate on my PC and I am beyond the recommended system requirements. Great game but very poorly optimized.
what can i say.... the trailer alone made me buy this game. The action sequences are ridiculously fun. Its the only game that made me stop playing skyrim and bf3. The character personality is just plain silly. Exactly how i want it.
I was playing Skyrim, Assassin's Creed Revelations and Batman Arkham City (in that order) religiously for days. But after playing this game! Bwahahaha! Saints go first in line!
..this is the first time i see an ally AI hijacking another civilan car just so he or she could follow u...they have taken so much time to build this game ..thumbs up.. ''The Third looks sharper on the PC than on console'' ....dam right ..
Started it, thinking I was gonna turn it off after the first mission. I was up until 2 in the morning and had to get up at 6 for work. I couldn't stop playing. The missions are tremendous fun, and after each one, you're wondering what on god's earth could you be doing next. LOOOOOOOVEEEE it. Highly recommend it. I didn't like the first one at all, never played the second. But this one is just fantastic. Atleast try it out!
it is amazing, it is sooooo random, i luv random. you can even be naked!!! but the pixelate the penis vagina
it's the best game in it's genre,a big pack of surprise,when i play it first time after installation,i've been playing for about 12 hours(pause the game only for necessary human needs!) 10/10 is the only score that the game really deserves...
