Once More Unto The Row

Saints Row: The Third doesn't take itself seriously, but it does contains some serious amount of fun. Whether you're playing through missions to progress the story, running around the city messing with pedestrians, or completing one of the many activities in the game, you're bound to have a blast with this over-the-top open world game. Saints Row 2 introduced more of the crazy gameplay elements to the series, and The Third rises the bar even further with more variety and twice as many crazy moments.

There are about 47 missions that take you through the story elements of Saints Row, and took me about 16 hours finish, with a nice chunk of that time completing other activities.

The way you play the game has changed a little bit with Saints Row: The Third. The respect meter that required you to have a certain amount to continue more story missions has been replaced with a leveling system. When you level up, you unlock the ability to upgrade your character and could eventually have a character that receives no damage from bullets, wield infinite ammo guns, and have access to nitrous to any car you jump in.

There's also the new survival to play, called...ahem..."Whored Mode". This survival mode takes place in different environments where you must take on waves of different enemies, most notably Ladies of the Night.

Player Customization is still a major element to the game, and now you can share your creations with friends. If you download the "Initiation Station", you could import your created characters as long as you visited the Saints Row website and made them available to share. Make sure you do this as there is an achievement to be had! There are also more stores to enter and even more variety in the types of outfits you can create for your character.

Saints Row: Third looks better, plays better, and offer more options than it's predecessors and gives you plenty to do in it's open world.

Wow way better then Grand Theft Auto 4! It has everything that you expect from the Saints Row series! But to me this game has class! A+++++++ And parents if your reading this 17 +-up so its not for Kids Adults only! Also I forgot to mention it has a great sound track as well! The play control is superb! The only drawback is the camping A.I. trust me you will see it when you get angry!
