Tales of the Glitch Monkey

Being a fan of SR2 I thought this would be more of the same kind of fun. However, a poor story, major flaws in activities and major glitches hurt most of the fun to be had in this game.

First, let me say once I unlocked "God Mode" this game got much more fun. I didn't use cheats. It was an upgrade unlocked by reaching the highest rank. That said, I finished the story at level 40 of 50. So, I had to grind out another 10 levels to get the good stuff. Some of the side missions have the same name but are two different activities. Occasionally, you will drive into an invisible object, your vehicle/character will be thrown into the air for no reason, your vehicle will sink into the map, the vehicle will explode for no reason, side missions don't end (meaning you accomplish what is needed but you can't leave the area and don't get credit for completing it), vehicles will spawn right in front of you and enemies show up out of nowhere. I got 96% of the trophies before quitting. The trophy that made me quit was the vehicle thefts. It used to be steal a car bring it to a shop. Now, it's get a specific car and drive/fly across the map with tanks and helicopters shooting at you. I got 1/3 of the cars before I got tired of going to an area looking for 10 minutes for the vehicle, driving for 5 minutes, get 2 feet from where I am supposed to deliver the vehicle and have it destroyed. You can't take cars from your garage that are of the same model, it has to be the car identified. Real annoying. They still have the nude censor, which is awful considering getting the pasties makes girls look topless. Friendly AI are constantly shooting the thing you are supposed to protect. And the endings are like InFAMOUS 2...as they are completely different and it's impossible to do a direct sequel without righting this one off.

Overall, this title felt like it needed another 6 months in QA. Instead, they rushed it for the holiday season. Too bad.

If you like GTA even a little, then you'll LOVE Saints Row the Third. This game is by far the most engrossing "sandbox" game to date. There's literally a little bit of everything in this game.

HIGHLY Recommend.
