Summary: If you enjoy the Saints Row franchise, you will enjoy this game. However I was disappointed to find out that the game DOES NOT INCULDE ALL THE DLC for the game. It includes a lot, but not all. The game was also a little disappointing because the farther you progress in the game, the easier it gets. You get to continually upgrade your character, until they are invincible with unlimited ammo. This essentially takes all the challenge out of the game.
Summary: Saints Row the Third has been out for a while so I won't speak to the game itself. It has been reviewed over and over and I won't do any service by doing it again here. The package itself comes with all the DLC which sounds like a great value, but there's a catch. The game doesn't always register all the DLC in game. I bought this game to play with my brother because we loves playing CO-Op on Saints 2. We installed the DLC disc and started the game as normal.
Summary: Saints Row: The Third strips down many of the fun diversions, customization, and weapons from SR2. Combined with a sub par story and a wealth of DLC content (including an online pass) and its clear that Saints Row:The Third is a downgrade in many ways from SR2. With that said SR3 is still fun it's just not SR2 and if you haven't played SR2 you are missing out on the better game.
