Product Description

Platform: PC Download | Edition: Standard Edition

They stirred up the streets of Stilwater and became the new kings of the town. Now, the city of Steelport is about to get rusted when the Saints take the fight to the Syndicates' turf for the biggest, most outlandish chapter in this epic gang war to date.

Saints Row the Third

Take the fight to Steelport
Take the fight to Steelport


Rejoin the ranks of the most unholy Saints around as you return to the Row to experience gang life, post-fame. Kids are kicking around in Saints sneakers, tough-guy hopefuls are slurping Saints energy drinks and storeowners are proudly displaying Johnny Gat bobble heads on their top shelves. Celebrity status has hit — but will the Saints survive their newfound glory unscathed?

In Saints Row: The Third, fame and fortune come at a bittersweet price for the kings of Stilwater. Faced with serious demands from the legendary criminal fraternity, the Syndicate, the Saints must hit the streets of Steelport to trample their new rivals — and defend their status. Get ready for intense action, grueling gang violence and outlandish situations to spare as you take on a decaying city of sin in an all-new battle with the Saints. Buckle up and take a massive tank on a wild ride — through the sky. Duke it out against trained military forces and call in a strategic airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang. With grit and guts galore, you and your gang will never kneel to an enemy. After all, just because you're a Saint doesn't mean you have to behave.

Key Features:

  • Return to the streets of Stilwater and discover how fame and fortune as the kings of the town has affected the Saints — for the better and for the worse
  • Take the fight to Steelport, a struggling city of sin where you must battle it out with the dangerous Syndicate gang
  • Get some serious air while driving a massive tank — right through the sky
  • Take on a Mexican wrestling gang in a satellite-targeted airstrike
  • Defend yourself against a highly trained military force in an incredibly outlandish scenario

Let's be honest, when Saints Row 2 came out for the PC, it was nothing, but a broken console port plagued by buggy controls. I, like many others here, was hesitant to buy this game and at the same time, very curious, because I own the 360 version and can't recall having such a blast playing a game. I laughed so hard at some of the missions, I was in tears. Just wait to rescue "Zimos", the dude with the voice box and you'll know what I'm talking about.

So, I took the plunge and bought the PC version, and all I can say is, well done to Volition and THQ. You have redeemed yourselves. I have to admit, I started the game with a 360 controller for windows, but then decided to do the game some justice and give it a try with the old mouse and keyboard combo...and boy was I pleased?! From the moment you start walking, you can feel how tight the controls are, driving vehicles and shooting is just as impresive. It's been a long time since I played a game that reminded me of what a TRUE PC GAME should play like, and Saints Row The Third's done it. I was very impressed. The controls are so tight, I had no need to re-map any; in fact, I tried going back to the 360 pad, but found myself returning to the mouse and keyboard; it was nice to finally play this game aiming with a mouse, the true tool of FPS and TPS. Hands down.

Now, the story, for those of you who have not played the console versions, well, long story short, your money is gone, your hood is gone and now you must take it back at all costs. As I always say on all my game reviews, "I won't spoil" it for you. You will have the most fun you've had in a long time, I promise you that. This game is so silly and at times, plain stupid, but in a very good way.

Was at first worried about the PC version of this game because of what my experience was with Saints Row 2. I can safely say that the PC port is excellent and there is nothing to worry about. When I first started the game up I put the video settings to ultra like the egotistical computer nerd that I am, but ended up dealing with hiccups in what would be a relatively smooth game. Surprisingly though, when I turned down the graphics the game still looked great; so don't worry about giving up graphic quality for game smoothness. Gameplay wise, this is a ton of fun, huge amounts of customization, over the top campaign, great voice work (especially since you can choose from 6 different human voices o:), and a ton of things to do. Make sure you have a friend getting this too because cooperative play makes it all the more enjoyable.

In the first hour of SR you will have more fun than you ever did in most "GTA style" games. I'm serious.

In the first hour you will rob a bank - with a helicopter, jump out of a plane - then jump through the plane, go skydiving while involved in a firefight and then you will storm into a military armory to steal a giant bomb and will hold off the tanks that come to defend the armory by using UAV drones. I'd go on but it gets a little absurd from there...

The game runs great, the voice acting is well done and funny, the missions are a blast and the opposing gangs are hilarious.

Oh and the game is on steam - except I love steam. So I'm not seeing any downsides there. In short - just buy it. I stopped playing Skyrim for this.

I had purchased Saints Row 2 for my xbox and really enjoyed it. I then researched Saints Row the Third by watching some videos and reading what other people had said about it. I was very impressed with the character creator and quest system. I purchased 2 copies, one for myself and 1 for my son (age 21) on PC, so we could play together and what a deal on Amazon, they were so much cheaper than any other download site I could find.

The installation was pretty easy, though we had a little trouble shutting off the built in voice (We use Ventrilo and needed to go into the sound options in the game to shut off the voice stuff, it auto-detected the microphones and turned it on in game) and i'm not crazy about having to run "Steam" all the time with it. I already had Elder Scrolls: Skyrim installed with Steam so I muttled through and got Saints Row the Third running with it.

Once up and running I really enjoyed the early game play and then finally got to the character creation part. It was amazing, I was very impressed by the all the options. Coming from an MMO/RPG background I really enjoy that part of a game and this game really had it done well. So once that was done it was onward with the game and man...was it ever. It was very exciting. Its a little campy which I liked much more than say a Grand Theft Auto type. It had humor surrounding the game.

The story leads you along through the game but if you want you can just take off and go anywhere in the game world and do almost anything. I actually wandered and found an airport with planes parked on the runway....well one thing led to another and I was airborne above the national guard armory. So I abandoned the plane and was skydiving towards a helicoptor pad. I landed and grabbed an attack helicoptor.
