Any game that lets you play as an obese woman with metallic skin, purple Mohawk, pink thong, no top and a love for streaking and slapping guys around the face with a giant purple dildo bat is okay in my book. If intelligence is cyclical then Saints Row The Third is so dumb that it’s smart.

Regardless of a few omitted favorites, Saints Row: The Third features no shortage of activities, side-quests, collectibles, and humorous distractions. Between them, the wealth of new upgrade options, co-op play, Whored mode (a Horde mode clone), and the explosive story missions, there’s no shortage of content. It’s also good to see Volition continue to make the series less buggy with each installment. Occasional glitches will rear their head as you cruise around the new city, but they’re rarely more than cosmetic. Taking over Steelport as the 3rd Street Saints feels like a more focused effort than its predecessors’ campaigns, and it’ll keep you laughing throughout.

Saints Row: The Third is a bona fide blast. It’s shameless, vice-ridden, and insanely violent, but because there’s nothing gritty about the production, it somehow feels almost lighthearted. You just have to take things with a grain of salt. Some of the control isn’t perfect, although I liked the vehicle handling, the AI is dense and the game won’t win any visual awards. But given what you can do, given the inviting environment that just begs you to enjoy every nook and cranny, it’s well worth the price of admission.

News flash: people find sex and violence entertaining. Saints Row: The Third gives the people what they want and drops us into an open world adult theme park where we can treat ourselves to delightful acts of bloodshed and perversion. It doesn't take itself too seriously and only asks that you don't, either.

Saints Row The Third takes fun to a whole different level between pure action and perverse humor, there is never a dull moment. It blows any other console sandbox game out of the water.

The Third is mechanically sound enough. Neither the shooting nor driving are particularly outstanding or terrible. They're both good enough to allow the game's designers to showcase their insanity without core gameplay issues getting in the way. Even before upgrading your character's health or abilities, you'll have enough stamina to cause mayhem without worry of death most of the time. This doesn't actually make the game too easy because of the sheer number of enemies that will be thrown at you. While the genre-staple law-enforcement wanted meter is present, there's also a second meter that measures how pissed-off rival gangs are at you. If you're in a battle with the cops, and a stray bullet catches a Luchador-mask wearing rival, you may soon find all hell raining down upon you as tanks, VTOLs, and APCs owned by factions on both sides of the law try to take you down.

With all of these things in mind, I respect that Saints Row: The Third might not be a game for everyone. Specifically, those who do not find joy in the act of inflicting terrible, fiery, dildo-y pain on whatever innocent polygonal creature happens to wander too close to their personal blast zone will probably not get much out of Saints Row's unrelenting dedication to preposterous anarchy. It is a game specifically designed for annihilation junkies, those who can embrace the idea of an infantile playground of seemingly infinite obliterative pleasures. For those who prefer their games a tad less absurdly--perhaps needlessly--violent, any number of other games this fall will likely suit your fancy just fine.

I'm not ashamed in my adoration of Saint's Row: The Third. It's juvenile, it occasionally objectionable (I'm sorry, I just don't like blasting away at bikini models, even if they are trying to kill me too) and sometimes after playing I feel like I should go take a shower. But I can't remember a game I've played recently that was so dedicated to letting the gamer have as much fun as possible any way they want to. And when it comes to having fun, Saints Row: The Third is like a big party that you don't want to see stop.

Trail Blazing – in which you plough through the city on a flaming quad bike, blowing up anything you come in contact with – is also massively enjoyable. In fact, a fair few of them are. But there are just so many it was inevitable that some would be utter guff, and the ‘Drive X to Y, wait while they do Z, drive them back’ activities feel like things we should really be spared in a modern sandbox game.

There is fun to be had in Saints Row: The Third it's true, but the best bits are always those furthest from the developer's control. Perhaps in a way that makes it a truer sandbox title than most, but for much of the time this feels like a barren desert rather than a fun-filled play area.
