Saints Row: The Third review

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: One of the problems with describing things that happen in Saints Row the Third is that everything you write just starts to sound like a demented Mad Lib. The green man in the gimp suit hit the luchador gang member in the crotch with an anime squid cannon.
Pros: 
  • The sheer madness of it all
  • The pure unadulterated fun
  • Inventive weapons and vehicles
Cons: 
  • A few boring sidemissions
  • That Steelport isn't more interesting
  • Going back to normal games

Verdict: Good: A solid game that definitely has an audience. Might lack replay value, could be too short or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.

Saints Row The Third (PS3)

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: 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.
Pros: 
  • 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
Cons: 
  • Visually unimpressive
  • Occasional glitches

Saints Row: The Third

★★★★★
Verdict: A consistently improving open-world franchise embraces its inner-cheesiness. Not many games can go from being a clone of a chart-topping title to a respected companion piece of the same bestseller in three iterations or less.
Pros: 
  • PROS: Fun, flexible gameplay involving a lot of things that go boom real big
  • some very memorable characters, including that pimp with the auto-tuned voice
  • cool vehicle and weapon design with a healthy level of customization
  • Burt Reynolds
Cons: 
  • CONS: Technical issues like frame rate drops and graphical glitches are signs of a lack of technical polish
  • some odd design choices -- I kept taking hostages of fellow gang members while trying to access my crib because they were on the same button
  • the map isn't all that great - there are a lot of...

Saints Row: The Third - The Trouble ...

★★★★★ 2.0
Verdict: Johnny Gat is back ... kind of. This comic book-influenced expansion pack introduces us to a super fan that clones the most famous member of the Third Street Saints. Too bad the short play time and shallow experience keep this from living up to the potential.

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Reviewer's note: This review contains spoilers regarding the first few moments in Saints Row: The Third. Read at your own discretion. At the beginning of Saints Row: The Third , we witnessed what appeared to be the death of Saints member Johnny Gat.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Over the top sandbox fun. You keep GTA until they go back to what made the older games fun. While you play golf. I'll play Super Ethical Reality Climax. While you shoot up meth heads. I'll DDT's luchadors onto the pavement while wearing a a furry costume.

Saints Row The Third (PS3)

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Saints Row The Third is one of the greatest open world environment games I have ever played. Personally, I don't think any of the GTA games can even touch Saints Row The Third. Even though GTA has so many cars, weapons, and upgrades to choose from, so does Saints Row.

Saints Row The Third (PS3)

★★★★★
Verdict: I walked in thinking Saints Row 3 was gonna be a blast. And it was, for the first 3 hours. The game throws everything at you, and you have tons of fun playing with them. But the novelty wears off when you realise you can access things really quickly.

Saints Row The Third (PS3)

★★★★★
Verdict: If you like GTA, so you're going to love this game. It's really good. You can customize a lot of things in your characters and do so many things in the city. It will take you a lot of hours to end this whole thing!

Saints Row: The Third

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: It begged, borrowed and stole a lot of its ideas from the GTAs III, Vice City and San Andreas, certainly, but it was also the moment the Saints Row franchise established itself as the video game corollary to the movie, Crank.
Pros: 
  • Outrageous weapons and characters
  • customisation levels border on fetishistic
  • masses of fun
Cons: 
  • Graphics aren't very good
  • occasional breaks in gameplay
  • Steelport is a soulless cesspit

Saints Row: The Third Review

★★★★ 4.0

  • Smart writing that has an underlying intelligence
  • Great styling and design
  • Insane fun
  • Free from any heavy plot or tone considerations
Cons: 
  • Looks slightly dated
  • Has an odd reliance on humour that doesn't always work

Saints Row: The Third Review (PS3)

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Possibly the most ridiculous terrorism simulator around In this gaming generation of soul delving plot-lines and eye deceiving realism, it's easy to forget a videogames' primary function is to make sure the player is having fun.
Pros: 
  • Tons and tons and tons of deadly gadgets to unlock
  • Loads of challenges to complete
  • Hilarious juvenile humour
  • Extensive character/clown customisation
Cons: 
  • Strange almost paranormal glitches
  • Missions are too easy with two players
  • City lacks a vibrant design seen in most other open world games

Saints Row: The Third

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: There's a TV advert doing the rounds at the moment that helpfully points out that Saints Row: The Third is available at Argos. As well as nudging you towards an impulse purchase, while treating that special person in your life to some Elizabeth Duke jewellery, the advert also acts as a - presumably...
Pros: 
  • Funny
  • entertaining
  • absurd
Cons: 
  • Derivative
  • obscene
  • sexist

Saints Row: The Third Review | Welcome To Funland

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: GTAV will have to wait its turn. We've been looking forward to Saints Row: The Third for a while now and after the dirty delights of SR2 , we can't wait to get stuck in again with the current console generation's most enjoyable open world crime series.
Pros: 
  • Simply fun to play
  • So much to do
  • The driving is the best the genre has ever seen
Cons: 
  • Not a lot of new side-mission types
  • Homie backup calls are pointless
  • Steelport very similar to Stillwater

Saints Row: The Third Xbox 360 Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: I'm not normally a fan of sandbox games, a lot take themselves far too seriously. Some pad out the game with tedious side missions and a few aren't even really sandbox games at all.

Review: Saints Row: The Third – The Trouble With Clones (DLC)

★★★★★
Verdict: So, you've dived through planes, taken to nude streaking while exploding people with the Apoca-fists, rid Steelport of the zombie hordes, fought enemies from within a computer and engaged in Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax, so now what?……Clones!!! O yeah, Johnny Gat is back!?!

Saints Row: The Third – The PS3 Attitude Review

★★★★★
Verdict: Even though the Third Street Saints are basically homicidal maniacs, we somehow still found ourselves rooting for them, mainly because they're simply so likeable, and the script is often laugh-out-loud funny.

Complete steal, buy this game

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: I bought this game around a year and a half ago, review is slightly late but not everyone would have played this yet. Saints Row: The Third is basically a GTA (Grand Theft Auto) that doesn't take itself seriously at all. This is a great thing! A little insight into the game.
Pros: 
  • Massive open world
  • freedom of choice
  • radio stations
  • creative missions
Cons: 
  • Average graphics
  • AI can be stupid

great

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: This is one of those GTA style games that somebody during creation had way too much fun and just cut loose with the ideas. To say it's crazy is an understatement. But its just enough crazy to be fun. worth a look.

Saints Row The Third (PS3)

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: It is very good and although there are bikinis and cleavage, there is nothing too sexual within this game. This game does not deserve an 18 rating, a 15, rather, would be more suitable as younger people would understand the meaning and difference between real/game.

Insanity Hits the Streets of Steelport

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: The Third Street Saints are back in action, this time landing in Steelport, a city called "Bangkok's abusive father" by gang member Shaundi. An organization called the Syndicate takes the fight to the Saints, and insanity hits the streets.

Saints Row: The Third Review

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: Three games in, Saints Row has found its stride. It is the anti-Grand Theft Auto. Volition has created a game that delights in mayhem, revels in trashy exploitation and aims to make you smile. And you will, so long as you don't stop to think about anything.

Saints Row: The Third Review

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: Saints Row: The Third is built on ludicrous foundations and that's why I love. It does what any good game should aim to do, produce hours of fun, and leaves it at that. It becomes more absurd with each new mission, made even more entertaining by an outstanding selection of ambitious weapons and...

Saints Row: The Third review

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: The PC release of Saints Row: The Third is that rarest of things – a decent PC release that doesn't suffer from shonky porting.
Pros: 
  • Freedom with an overdose of derangement
  • Plenty of diversions on offer to beef up the main campaign
  • Melee combat and shootouts feel satisfyingly visceral.
Cons: 
  • Occasional frame rate issues
  • AI could be given a reboot

Fun, but..

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: I actually preferred the 2nd game to this 3rd offering, this has some hilarious additions, but the game is kind of the same, alot of the quests feel recycled and for me it was better to play them first time around.

Saints Row: The Third – Genkibowl VII (DLC) (PS3)

★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: If you have to sum up Saints Row: The Third in one word it has to be ‘crazy.' With the amount of weird and wonderful activities and characters it was hard to imagine that it could get any weirder.
9 years ago

It was OK

★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: I finished the game and traded it in, if I could do it over I wouldn't have bought it.
Pros: 
  • Graphix are better than Saints Row 2
  • the customizations of your character are awesome
  • and the music is awesome
Cons: 
  • Missions are pretty cruddy compared to the previous games, seems like the game is just filled mainly with the activities which kinda suck for the most part
  • Also the missions you'll be fighting enemies then suddenly a cutscene will appear, odd things like that happen often

PS3 Review - 'Saints Row: The Third'

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to a new city, playing out the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen. Strap it on.

This is the most awesome game I have played.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: It is so awesome, you can drive cars; fly airplanes, jump out, and parachute down. You can customize your person and make his/her size, there personality, and the size of there stuff how big as you want. You can customize your cars and make them basically invincible.
