4.0 out of 5 stars Saints Row 3 - Pure Fun, November 16, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Saint's Row: The Third - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
This game is a lot of fun, no complicated setup or long hours of training to get good at playing. You'll have fun from the moment the game begins.

Overall Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars

The game, while targeted at "adult" males, is a lot of fun if you don't get bogged down the the details of killing hundreds of law enforcement officers and hookers. The game is meant to just be fun, not commentary on modern society or a discussion on politics. Start blasting everything, exploring the city, and grabbing some cash.

Graphics: 5 out of 5 stars

The graphics are great, with a lot of detail down to litter on the streets, various people walking down the street, and a random selection of vehicles traveling down the roads for you to admire and steal. There is also a great deal of detail allowed on your character, including clothes you can select, tattoo variants, etc.

Missions: 4 out of 5 stars

The missions span a wide range of types, from robbing banks to attacking other gangs scattered throughout the city. There are side missions called in via cell phone, as well as trouble you can get into while you explore the city on foot, in a car, on a motorcycle, in an airplane stolen from the airport, or even via helicopter.

Characters: 4 our of 5 stars

The character is customized by you at the start of the campaign, so almost anything goes. You will also be allowed to change the clothes, add tattoos, change the voice, talk to pedestrians, etc. Very detailed and amusing to listen to the variety and it might even teach you new profanity or insults.

** Warning: this game is truly intended for a mature audience, so do not allow your youngster to plan this game if they can't handle sex, drugs, nudity, violence, explosions, marketing of adult products and services, and other mature themes. This game really pushes the envelope on mature material, so don't think that the other mature games weren't so bad so this one might be OK. It ain't OK, and might scar the little ones. **
