Saints Row: The Third

It’s a fun game, but it’s also so over the top

I have enjoyed the previous two titles in the Saints Row series. This one is taking the story, the jokes, and the believability over the edge. It’s no longer about you taking over street turf (Although it still is). It’s more about you taking over the world as if you are some sports figure with endorsement and movie deals. The game has to go bigger then before to make it more grand. This can be a good deal of fun when you are flying an Apache attack helicopter creating mayhem everywhere. The customization is also a lot of fun, I ran through the game as a female with a Russian accent. On the flip side, how are you realistically going to run a street gang with all the craziness that is happening. The graphics have gotten better which makes the game visually more fun. The physics are all over the place, but that can be fun as well. There is a good deal of progression in the game that makes playing easier and fun as well. My favorite is being able to buy a perk that shows you where all the collectibles are on the map (Although I found 75% of them on my own). It’s not a hard game to get through. There is one achievement that requires you to play for 30 hours. I reached it easily before I ran out of things to do and it didn’t feel like 30 hours. All the things I mention that I liked could of made this a four star game and it was almost there. The things I didn’t care for brought it down to a three star game. This title is the start of a love hate kind of thing because of the direction the series is heading. I can only imagine from the box art, what the 4th game will be like, and it already looks ridiculous. Having just finished this game I will be diving right into the next one. May Gat help me.

  • Unravel is a cool little platformer with interesting puzzle elements and mechanics. You play Yarny, a character made of yarn that unravels as you progress through each level. The character can unravel to a point that it can no longer move forward. However there are points in each level that will replenish the yarn letting you move forward. This is...

  • It's the first call of Duty game and it's now available on the Xbox 360. The game is very much a game of inches as you fight your way to the next checkpoint. You will need to play this game on the hardest difficulty to complete an achievement and it will test every fiber of your being as enemies pour down grenades on you as if they were giving away fists full of candy to...

  • I was surprised that I actually ended up liking the this game more then the last one. The direction the third game was going left much to be desired. However this game goes so far off the deep end that it’s hardly a Saints Row game, it’s just surreal. You start off as the president of the United States. Then an alien entity come to earth and destroyed everything,...

  • The Raven is a nice little click it/who done it adventure game with very detailed environments. The world is not that large, but for an arcade title the game is some 8+ Gigs on the Xbox 360 (One of the reasons I wanted to play and finish it), that’s huge! The story is set in an Agatha Christie style atmosphere where a master thief though dead has stolen...

  • If you enjoyed the first Puzzle Quest game, then I think you will like this one as well. The gameplay remains primarily the same. Match gems to build mana pools to cast spells and destroy your enemy. What has changed is that the traveling in this new world has gotten a smaller, more zoomed in view. Weapon and armor are also now upgradable by collecting items...
