This game kept me laughing all the way through it. The mechanics of the game are spot on and the physics are great. There was always something new and each time I thought I saw it all, something else would surprise me.
It is meant to be a lot of fun and to have that fun with abandon and it does that very well.
It had me playing for hours just seeing how much mayhem I could create before things would get the better of me.

Everyone keeps giving this game such positive reviews. 10/10, 5/5, etc, etc, etc. WELL I'M NOT ONE OF THEM!! This game is not what so many reviewers make it out to be.
Sure, what it does, it does right....for the most part. Most of the side activities like "mayhem" and "tank mayhem" are BORING AND EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE REST OF THE GAME, BUT LESS FUN!! Worse, in order to do some missions, you are FORCED to do these missions. DOES THAT SOUND FUN TO YOU!? Well it isn't.
From what I've heard, Saints Row 3 is actually WORSE than Saints Row 2. I haven't played SR2, but at this point, I believe it. Some of the textures in this game look like Wii games, and we KNOW how much the Wii's graphics suck.
Another thing, you get too powerful, too fast. There is LITERALLY a bullet immunity perk, which makes the game BORING BECAUSE YOU NEVER DIE ANYMORE!!
The perverted things in this game are pretty much the only thing holding this game together at all. That's not what SR is all about. SR is about serious, but awesome moments, THEN perverted stuff.
After a while, the jokes begin to fade in comedy, and just become somewhat of an annoyance. I half expected the ultimate "STAG" weapon to be a giant vibrator or something from how perverted the game was.
The game was about 12 hours long, and then I got bored of it and went to play something else. If you're going to get this game, wait for the price to go down. Get SR2 instead. I've heard really good things about it, and you should check it out.
5/10 Nothing but an overrated game that needs to be exposed for its overlooked problems.
