Default Saints Row The Third?
Is anyone planning on getting it? And if you already have it, is it fun? Any pros or cons?

I saw the trailer and I immediately wanted it; IGN's reviewer had given it an 8.5, so to me, this might be a good catch. But I want your opinions on it; what do you think of the game? I'm getting Skyrim too because it seems like it might be interesting, but I've also never played the last series of games both of them have in their collection.

So, what do you think?

GET. SKYRIM.

It is SO worth the money.

Anyway I was thinking about getting Saints Row the Third soon. But I still have to get AC Revelations,Battlefield 3, Gears 3,Bulletstorm and MW3.

An excellent game that is one of the most outlandish gaming experiences around.

It's a bit more extreme in terms of its sense of humour and some might be offended but if you love a crazy sandbox game with no pretense to common sense then you'll get a kick out of the latest Saints Row.

It is also worth noting the game has some of the most impressive uses of licensed music as backdrops for specific gameplay you'll find.

Definitely a worth while purchase.

And guys don't say a game is 'addicting'. That is a horrible massacre of the English language. The word is 'addictive'. Thank you. :)

I'm playing Saints Row to relax after playign Skyrim :D

The series has come a long way since the first game, wich was just a jacked up rip-off of GTA San Andreas.
The quality of the cut-scenes is what surpriced me the most this time around, they're quite good and seeing your custom made char in them doing John Woo style crazy stuff is awesome.

I don't like that they took out a bunch of cool cars like the Venom Classic etc. There's also still a lot of AI & pathing issues and quite some silly glithces, it's just not as polished as Rockstar's games.
Overall, it's a great game to unwind with and just have some mindless fun

It's a fun game. I got it for $39.99, at launch, which is...honestly about as much as I'd pay for it.

I'm not fond of the so called 'GTA-clone" games (even though I do find myself enjoying this more than GTAIV). I think my biggest fault with the game is that...it's not very good looking. At all. The cityscape, the vehicles, the characters (particularly those coming out of the generator), the graphics engine itself.

It does explosions decently, and vehicle damage pretty well. But, I say this as someone who inherently dislikes this style of game.

Saw some videos of it and read some articles. Looks to me like a fun game. I have Saints Row 2 myself, although not touched it. Saints Row reminds me to good old Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but then much weirder and more over the top.

If you want a true RPG, go for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, I mean sure, you can't steal cars and jump over rivers with bikes, but it is a great game with good gameplay and an enticing storyline, that is affected by your decisions, and it isn't like those games where the enemy just knows you are there, you can go stealth or shoot everybody to death, it is open-world. And if you do prefer jacking cars and jumping rivers in bikes I would suggest waiting for GTA 5.

Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.

ehh, Saints Row is not a RPG. Same goes for Grand Theft Auto. They are action games.
You do not develop your character, which is the keyfactor in a RPG. It's simply doing dirty jobs.

I didn't say GTA was an RPG, I said Deus Ex was, I brought up GtA, Because it is openworld, like Saint Row, and although I may have sorta "said" Saints Row is an RPG it isn't i agree

^ implying GTA isn't a true rpg as you can jump over bodies of water.

Saints Row =/= Skyrim =/= Deus Ex

Oh, hey, if you like apples, toothpaste would be an adequate replacement. Buy it if you want a sandbox style game in which you can shoot people in the face and do stupid over-the-top shit. Don't buy it to replace a completely different game.
