"Super OTT-Ethical Carnage"
5 stars"

Review by Geoff on 14th January, 2012

Saints Row: The Third has picked up where GTA fell of the rails.

The storyline is superb (not quite epic, but expansions may make it that). It is interlaced with humour throughout, and while some of it reeks of cheese, you cannot help but laugh.

The carnage is, to summarise, a thing of truth and beauty. From the Appocafist to calling in air strikes, there are so many different methods of dealing out Saints' Justice.

The only negative point: the non-storyline content is a little repetitive. So while it is a large sandbox, there is not that much variety in what you can do off-piste. Of course an invincible avatar wielding unlimited rockets does have a certain cathartic element to it, but in the end it does get a bit repetitive. It would have been great to see some side quest type missions / storylines (other than the progressive assassinations / car thefts).

All in all, this game is a laugh a minute and a lot of fun, if your sensibilities are not easily offended.

Genki is a true legend.

"The definition of fun"
5 stars"

Review by Aravindh on 24th November, 2011

You would have to be completely crazy to buy this, that's why I go it. Probably one of the most fun games ever. Has that lasting appeal as well that that quirky funny bits that saints row is usually known for. Loooove the gagdets in-game. Love the senseless destruction, the stupidity and Prof. Genki ofcourse.

"Awesome, exciting mayhem!!"
5 stars"

Review by Aryn on 22nd November, 2011

Saints row have done it again, fine tuning this game to be the best yet. Better graphics, weapons and vehicles make this game brilliant. Melee fighting is a focus which makes for nonstop brutal fun

"Over the moon with this game"
5 stars"

Review by Quyen on 19th January, 2014

If your a fan of the GTA games then you be happy with Saints Row. Open world game play and plenty to do. Can't wait to play the next one.

"Nothing is unexpected anymore"
4 stars"

Review by Zak on 8th May, 2013

This is a fun game and all but everything is so over-the-top that it just doesn't have that hilarious effect

Description

The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control…

“To say that Saints Row: The Third is a good time would be a severe understatement. Running naked around the fictional city of Steelport wiping out rival gangs with mind-controlling octopi provided some of the most fun I've had this year.” 8.5/10 IGN

Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and defend yourself against a highly-trained military force using only a sex toy in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen, igniting a city-wide war that will set Steelport on fire.

This is now your city. These are now your rules. Strap it on…

Features:

  • Over The Top – Like a lapdance from a porn star, the action is naughty, fun, and better than anything you're getting at home.
  • City of Sin – Disrupt and dismantle the Syndicate stranglehold on weapons, cybercrime, and sex trades. Discover the secrets of Steelport, where there is action on every street corner, for better or, more likely, worse.
  • Weapons of Crass Destruction – It's one thing to defeat your enemies. It's another to humiliate them. Hover jets, human cannonball cars and sex-toy warfare are all part of the fun.
  • Co-op Madness – Give naked skydiving a try, landing in your partner's flaming pickup as you make a suicide run toward a heavily armed Syndicate brothel. Steelport is more fun with a friend.
  • Initiation Station – Create, share, and download the most outlandish characters ever seen, from washed-up celebrities to naked ninja pirates. Inside every sinner, there is a Saint.

Review by IGN
“A video game's first responsibility – arguably its only responsibility – is to show the player a good time. To say that Saints Row: The Third is a good time would be a severe understatement. Running naked around the fictional city of Steelport wiping out rival gangs with mind-controlling octopi provided some of the most fun I've had this year. There may be a tendency to dismiss Saints Row as a Grand Theft Auto clone (it isn't) or as juvenile antics (it is) but when you just want to indulge in some mindless violence and sexual depravity, this will more than suffice… News flash: people find sex and violence entertaining. Saints Row: The Third gives the people what they want and drops us into an open world adult theme park where we can treat ourselves to delightful acts of bloodshed and perversion. It doesn't take itself too seriously and only asks that you don't, either.”

IGN RATINGS FOR SAINTS ROW: THE THIRD (X360)
8.5 Presentation
Plot points mostly serve as a way to get you into ridiculous situations. I really like the phone/menu interface. Setting up co-op is a breeze.
8.0 Graphics
The city of Steelport looks great, but you'll notice a lot of pop-up and jerky animations.
9.5 Sound
The licensed soundtrack is fantastic and voice acting – for the most part – is very well done.
8.5 Gameplay
Saints Row 3 isn't trying to be anything but fun, and it succeeds. RPG elements incentivize every little thing you do, making for an addictive open world game with no pretense.
8.5 Lasting Appeal
There were 14 hours on the clock when I beat the campaign, but I've since kept playing to the 22 hour mark and am still at only 86 percent completion.
8.5
OVERALL
Great
