4.0 out of 5 stars Saints preserve us, this game is insane!, 11 Aug. 2014
By 
This review is from: Saints Row The Third (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
SAINTS ROW THE THIRD is the most unpretentious game I've played to date. It aims to be a gloriously over the top thrill ride and it succeeds with great aplomb. From start to finish it's all-out mayhem. Nowhere else do you get the opportunity to batter someone with a huge adult toy or drive around town with an angry tiger in the passenger seat. Few games have actually made me laugh out loud but SRTT did. There are some truly hilarious moments and plenty of dry dialogue. The one-liners are delivered with perfection by the voice actors (I chose the English voice for the playable character - voiced by Robin Atkin Downes, I believe - and it fitted seamlessly). There have been criticisms that story missions feel more like side missions and I can understand this concern. But story is not really what this game is about. There has to be a narrative of sorts but it's the freewheeling craziness of the gameplay that makes this game a joy. Graphically the game is pretty good without being notable. Steelport is nicely realised but some of the character models are less impressive. The soundtrack is worth a note as it includes some fantastic music from just about every genre imaginable. It may not be to everyone's taste but if you fancy 15+ hours of riotous pandemonium (plus however many hours of coop, although I suspect it might get old quite quickly once you've finished the campaign and experienced all the hilarity and craziness) then you can't go far wrong with this game.
