Saints Row: The Third - Genki Bowl VII
26 January 2012
Conclusion: After completing your first Genki Apocalypse event, you're invited to take advantage of a Super Ethical PR Opportunity. Here, you must drive the psychopathic professor himself to a public appearance. Professor Genki's ride, the Genki Mobile, is especially effective at mowing down pedestrians, and it sports flamethrowers on the front and sides. These features come in handy, because Genki is a demanding passenger.
Pros: Sad Panda Skyblazing is an outrageous new activity, Adds a huge ball of yarn to your garage.
Cons: Two new events are just disappointing variants on existing activities, Lacks the core game's humor, Very brief.
Summary: If you've already spent time in Steelport, you know that it's a place where an enterprising gang leader can earn cash and respect by chauffeuring tigers around, protecting friends from attack while perched in a helicopter with a rocket launcher, laying waste to city blocks with a tank, and participating in all sorts of other activities.

Excerpt: In the past, THQ and Volition's Saints Row series has been the equivalent of the Scary Movie films. They take something successful and loved, in this case the Grand Theft Auto series and mock it for all its worth. Sure, it's passable, but it never sets its sights higher than being a goofy version of something that came before it. Until now that is.
Conclusion: With excellent writing, strong variety, lots of stuff to do and an incredibly fun and endearing attitude, Saints Row 3 is one of the most quirky games to come out in 2011. The combat could still be deeper and the AI is still noticeably weak and coupled with some technical deficiencies and a disappointing extra mode, Saints Row 3 strictly settles for being great, but it that’s more than enough to warrant a recommendation.
Summary: Saints Row: The Third is definitely bigger and badder than ever before, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's better. While the missions are great fun and mucking around the city is a good laugh – doubly so if you’re arsing about with a friend – the dull distractions and occasional duff assignments sometimes makes it feel like a grind. It’s a good laugh to play, but due to these inconsistencies, sadly less than heavenly.
