Saints Row the Third starts off on a different note than the previous games. You're at the very height of the Saints popularity. Unfortunately, someone else wants in on your territory. This leads to the fall of the Saints, in ways than one. The cartoon-like journey is heavily focused on revenge. After all, getting even is a specialty for the Saints.
The pc port is done well, unlike the previous title. However, the ridiculous factor is dialed up quite a bit. I still found it enjoyable, but it was hard to care about what was happening in the story. I felt that they were emphasizing the ridiculousness over all else. I suppose that might not be a bad thing, for some. I just felt a bit off-put by it.
Combat is a bit old school, which is fine. You buy and upgrade weapons at your leisure. Some of them get unique bonuses once maxed. There wasn't anything remarkable about it, so I'd say they played it fairly safe there.
