"An open world adult theme park where we can treat ourselves to delightful acts of bloodshed and perversion." - IGN.com
"Beyond the dense, dangerous, opportunity-filled open world, there's another mission type around every corner." - Joystiq.com
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you.
The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control.
Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and defend yourself against a highly-trained military force using only a sex toy in the most out- landish gameplay scenarios ever seen, igniting a city-wide war that will set Steelport on fire.
Strap it on.

This is one of the finest open world sandbox games available today. If you're looking for some mindless rampaging in a fairly large open world environment, look no further. It's wacky and over the top. There's plenty things to do ranging from story missions to various activities (Such as Tank Mayhem).

Saints Row: the Third is a hilariously absurd action shooter that refuses to take itself seriously for fantastic comical effect. Playing similar to GTA, Saints Row 3 has worked the kinks out of its previous games to blow the GTA series out of the water.
Action-packed, time and time again this game makes me laugh and feel like a total bad ass all at the same time. The game play was smooth, although sometimes choppy AI can cause your NPC teammates to move somewhat sporadically, they prove to usually be useless to you anyways and you will kick plenty of ass on your own.
The games story often takes you into absolutely ludicrous situations, but it makes it feel better that the game is willing to joke about itself, and that with an ok selection of weapons, cool vehicle and (often hilarious) character customization,
Saints Row 3 proved to be well worth its cost, which surprised me for a game I had not even given a seconds notice until here. From Aerial assaults to bondage role play rickshaw gunfights (???) to bank heists, the game provides ass kicking action and comical moments in an open sandbox environment.

Open world environment. If you enjoyed the old school GTA's then this is an ideal game for you. Being able to run around in whatever clothes you chose giant TF2 hats.
One of my favorite aspects is the choices that actually effect your future gameplay!
So much to do I tihnk I am on just under 60hours of this game and nearing completion.
10/10 must buy

Saints row the third is a breath of fresh air from the realistic sandbox games currently on the market. It doesn't take itself seriously and this makes for some crazy missions and some of the most fun multi-player moments I have ever had. SR3 is the best of the series so far and with tons of dlc and customisation tools it keeps the game fresh for ages.

People like to compare this game to GTA series, I would say that is not accurate. The open world adventure is a genre, not a franchise. Saints Row 3 allows bring more freedom and humor, in an over the top fashion. This is like having GTA on roids.
For example, there's plenty of ways to beat up a random citizen and cause mayhem in the street, something GTA is lacking. This is a dark humor kind of game, so it is suitable only for mature players and not for kids.
Personally i didn't care for the main storyline much but was engrossed in the gameplay which is an adventure in itself. Highly recommended for fans of this genre.
