Cartoony chaos

Amazing game full of unrealistic chaos and mayhem, I let my 12 year old play this and he loved it and found it educational along the way. This game taught my kid a lot about what kind of people you should hang around and how you should always trust family. However I did find in some cases they used words such as a** and sh*t but rarely.

There are plenty of video games on the market that cater to audiences of all ages, with clean wholesome entertainment for the whole family. Saints Row: The Third Remastered is not one of them. The game is filled with all kinds of adult humor, extreme violence, and other mature content that earns its M rating many times over. That said, the over-the-top open world action/adventure game is also a lot of fun to play. And thanks to all the visual polish put into this remaster, the Third Street Saints have never looked better. Whether you're locked in a gunfight on the city streets, barreling through law enforcement in an armored tank, or threading the needle between the buildings of Steelport in a jet fighter, the game looks fantastic and it never skips a beat.

Saints Row: The Third relishes in its absurdity, taking players along on a ridiculous rollercoaster of a ride that pokes fun at just about every taboo imaginable. But underneath its bawdy and raucous presentation is a surprisingly deep game with a lot of content. There's never a shortage of things to do in Steelport, and there's enough variety in the activities to keep things from getting stale or repetitive. This remastered package includes even more content than the original release, adding extra missions, cosmetics, and items previously only available as downloadable content. If there's one gripe about the game, it would have to be the pacing. While there's plenty of side missions and activities to fill time, actual story progress happens at a much slower pace. Thankfully, Steelport is a city that players likely won't be in too much of a rush to leave behind.
