Summary: Saints Row 2 is one of my favorite games of this generation. Taking the silly violence of " Grand Theft Auto III trilogy " and ramping it up to near-farcical degrees, Volition created a game that was like nothing else out there, despite resembling every other sandbox game on the surface. One of its most compelling aspects was the playable role of an irredeemable villain whose sociopathic treatment of others made for a truly vile character.
Summary: Johnny Gat is back ... kind of. This comic book-influenced expansion pack introduces us to a super fan that clones the most famous member of the Third Street Saints. Too bad the short play time and shallow experience keep this from living up to the potential. Not even super powers can save this lazy pack of downloadable content!

Saints Row: The Third - The Trouble with Clones DLC review
30 March 2012
Excerpt: Reviewer's note: This review contains spoilers regarding the first few moments in Saints Row: The Third. Read at your own discretion. At the beginning of Saints Row: The Third , we witnessed what appeared to be the death of Saints member Johnny Gat. Since that moment, there seemed to be a rift in the attitude of many Saints members. Obviously, these fine, murderous gangsters missed their friend, and it was sad seeing a longtime character go.
Summary: By focusing on story-based missions and a great supporting cast, Gangstas in Space proves that THQ can release compelling downloadable content for Saints Row: The Third. The three levels may be short, but it's packed full of amazing set pieces and great writing. The Third Street Saints are in fine form in this expansion pack!

Saints Row: The Third - Gangstas in Space DLC review
27 February 2012
Excerpt: The first downloadable mission pack for Saints Row: The Third , Genkibowl VII , launched last month, giving fans of the game exactly what they wanted: more Saints Row: The Third . Sadly, the package was light on content, and while it was certainly fun, it was clearly geared toward gamers who truly loved the main game and simply wanted to enter the city of Steelport once more. Here we are one month later, and the second mission pack for Saints Row: The Third has landed.
Excerpt: If you have to sum up Saints Row: The Third in one word it has to be ‘crazy.’ With the amount of weird and wonderful activities and characters it was hard to imagine that it could get any weirder. The weirdest of them all was the cat-like Professor Genki, and when you hear that the new downloadable content is called Genkibowl VII you know things are about to get pushed up a notch or two.
Summary: Genkibowl VII is not the Saints Row: The Third add-on you've been waiting for. Instead it's a painfully bad mini-game collection, half of which is recycled from last year's disc-based release. There are some funny lines here and there, but they won't make up for the disappointing and overpriced content! This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
