Saints Row: The Third
Anyone been playing this? Do you like it?

I'm tossing up whether to get it or not. I liked Saints Row 2 and some of the clips on YouTube look pretty rad, but I dunno if it will just end up feeling like more of the same and I'll get bored.

I was thinking about getting this, but then Skyrim happened. Interested to hear others thoughts - I got this at a GOTY edition so it was pretty cheap and I enjoyed it heaps.

I am enjoying it but that is cause i loved SR2

There is nothing new here its the exact same game with a could of extra activities thrown in and some over the top weapons.

Nice to playthrough but nothing ground breaking.

A 6 or 7. From the guy who loves everything and has played the first two.

So maybe Edge's 6 is on the money?

Who'da thunk it?

Spoiler:
Ha! Up yours, Edge-hating ****s!

it might be correct, but it still sounds like a first year hipster Arts student let loose with a thesaurus.

Just because they use words with more than two syllables.

Thread now about Edge.

Anyway, I ended up getting it, it looks so stupidly over-the-top that it can't possibly be anything but fun, even if it doesn't have much longevity in the end

I was a bit disappointed with the over the top element, doesnt really seem that over the top to me.... more then the last for sure but hardly mindblowing

Okay so I've started playing it. It's a lot of fun, primarily because of the ridiculously over-the-top missions and stupid humour, but I can see that it's going to be something I only play through once and then really only come back to if I just feel like letting off a little steam and causing some mayhem

I love the use of licensed music at certain parts of the game,

Kanye West - POWER when you take your first stronghold
Bonnie Tyler - I Need a Hero when you have to make the choice
Spoiler:
to save Shandi or kill Killbane

And
Hybrid - Break My Soul - During the last mission
Spoiler:
If you decide to kill Killbane instead of save Shandi, Break my Soul plays when you fight that military guy on top of a flying Aircraft Carrier


Also anyone notice the lines of dialogue when the FBI girl is talking to the other Hacker during the mission where you steal a super computer are taken from this scene? (1:30 onwards)
