- Customer Reviews:
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. 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 Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. 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 out- landish gameplay scenarios ever seen, igniting a city-wide war that will set Steelport on fire. Strap it on must conquer the city or face destruction. But this is no ordinary city. Gateway to the Rust Belt, Stilwater is a living-breathing environment where enemies may strike back at any time and send you reeling for reinforcements.

In the Third, You're the big bossman. You and your homies have gained celebrity status and the Saints name has turned into a multi-national corporation, selling energy drinks, lunchboxes, the works. After a botched bank job, you awake to find yourself in a plane, staring at the leader of the Syndicate, a group of three street gangs run out of Steelport and led by Philipe Loren. After breaking free, escaping the plane, and landing on the ground, you find that all your assets have been seized. Time to rise up yet again to bring the Saints to stardom.
There is a definite difference between the second and third games. Where the second had excellent action-movie cutscenes and quirky humour, the third seemed to focus more on making people laugh. The lines exchanged between characters are absolutely hysterical, mission content varies from stealing hookers off a cargo ship to unleashing a zombie plague on one of the islands, but the absurdity of it all is the staple that keeps it together. Saints Row is literally one big parody of modern games, movies, and tv.
The absolute insanity carries over into the game's cameos as well. In Saints Row 2, Eliza Dushku and Neil Patrick Harris were a part of the cast. For the voice work in the Third Volition stepped it up, including pornographic film star Sasha Grey, Famous ex-wrestler Hulk Hogan, and the one and only "Burt Mother------- Reynolds" (actual quote from the game). Yes, Burt Reynolds is in the game. Awesome, right?
In short, Saints Row the Third is a bonkers, sexual, crude, hilariously off-the-wall game that makes itself original by ripping off a little bit of everything. It makes for one hell of a playthrough, and one brilliantly fun game.

I'm biased as a fan of the saints row series. But free range plot-driven fun just doesn't get better than this. (Except maybe saints row IV.) You'll get feels, you'll laugh, you'll hate, you'll love, you'll sing 80's songs, you'll even kill zombies. I'm glad my family was out of town because I spent an EMBARASSING amount of time playing this game. I called in sick twice and ordered out twice because I refused to stop playing.
I Loved saints row II. I replayed it 4 times with new characters, but then III came out and MAN WHO NEEDS THE BATHROOM AND FOOD I HAVE SAINTS ROW III.
My dad is terribly amused by running around and just throwing explosive charges on things and setting them all off at once. I had to pause the game because he started choking on his laughter as I massacred people outside the hospital and cop cars flew through the stratosphere, my character laughing hard in leather pants and a superhero mask. Then as I escaped, nitrous away off a cliff and return to mother sea, dad laughs so hard he drops his beer and breaks the glass, and I need to stop before he slips on the liquid and ends up in a coma.
