It makes no sense they never speak on the subject, they never show the body, and finally after you land you start going against the syndicate, not go to the wreckage lol I'm still hoping for some DLC if not I will be very sad face. What I think is that they shot the intercom not Gat....hopefully. ^_^

The only thing that really bums me out is that this game is short, and I was able to get almost all of the achievements within a week of the game's release.

This game is not fun. It doesn't have the fun factor that the other two games had, and it's as if they spent so much time trying to be "out there" with how crazy some parts of the game are that they left out much of what made the other games fun and carry it over. It's too watered down and doesn't have much substance to it. The Deckers were annoying as fuck and the game could have done without them (Tron ripoff poorly done). I'm not asking it to be GTA, just fun and enjoyable.

I can't believe i cancelled my pre-order for AC:R for this (financial issue caused me to have to cancel one pre-order, and I kept this one, unfortunately). I'm at the point where I'm debating even keeping the game after I get my 1k gamerscore in it...it all depends on what Volition offers in DLC (and I'm not impressed with what they already have out so far).

OK, after getting 1k on this game I have made my definitive list for things that are shitty about this game.

1. Activities (Quantity)- Don't get me wrong for the most part they were all enjoyable (with the exception of trafficking because Zimos and Pierce are seriously fucking stupid and take FOREVER to get into the car. This can be bitch point number 2, the mind numbingly stupid AI) but seriously, only 6 levels per type of activity, with the best ones from 2 removed? (Crowd Control, Fight Club, Septic Avenger, Demo Derby, Fuzz). I don't get the Volition logic.
Saints Row: 3 places for each activity with 8 levels each, for a total of 24 levels per activity.
Saints Row 2: 2 places with 6 levels each for a total of 12 levels per activity. What it lacks in amount compared to 1, it makes up for in actual enjoyability.
Saints Row 3: 6 places with only 1 level. Only 6 levels per activity. Insurance Fraud and the Genki activity are the only ones that even come close to how fun 2's activities were. And by this logic SR4 should only have 3 levels per activity.

3. Getting your self/vehicles stuck inside objects- Yesterday alone I had my Kaneda's front tire clip inside a ramp as I tried doing a jump, and my guy got stuck inside a wall when he bailed from a vehicle. Also got stuck inside a store because when I pressed Y to open the store's door he jumped through the door and onto a motorcycle that was inside, and couldn't get off.

4. Less of everything (compared to SR2)- Less activities, less missions, less vehicles, less weapons, less clothing options, less fun. Plus about 10 or so of the already small amount of missions are just doing activities.

That's all I can think of for now.

Yeah, I agree with that. The "revenge" for it wasn't as satisfying as the revenge situations in SR2 either.

The vehicle thefts are beyone frustrating and make me want to snap my controller in half. How the fuck am I meant to get the swat van back to the chop shop when I have the whole STAG army throwing everything at me as soon as I get in it, and I can't use any weapons to retaliate while driving the shitty thing?!

Did you unlock and buy the ability to wipe the police notoriety away? If so, use it.

the huge lack of guns special weapons are fine but everything else seems empty also where the hells the katana gone

and the police snipers are overpowered 2 shot destroyed a peteliner seriously 2 shots
violation didnt really add anything to it yes new activity and some small things but it seems smaller than saints row 1
but i still like the game and will gladly play it on co-op but solo it feels empty

oh and the music somehow got worse sort of theres less than there was in saints row 2 and that was limited at best well my selection was anyway

One thing I will complain about is the lack of challenge. I 1k this in less than a week. In the other Saints Rows there was a challenge. This one came way to easy.

On a kind of related note is it me or were all the gang leader confrontations kinda of lame, I mean Killbanes was more what I expected but Lorens and Millers were both dissapointing.

Yeah, they went too far with making it easier. I would have at least liked an achievement for stunt jumps and barnstorms. Although a lot of it being easier also has to do with no more insane online achievements, and the game being shorter in general.

Agreed 100%. The scene on the plane with Loren was cooler, but that's all you get. Then you have the fight with Miller and that's all you get with him as well. Killbane was much better, especially if you make the choice related to him near the end of the game.

Ye I expected more from Miller then afterwards I was just left thinking what the hell just happened and is it me or did Killbane seem rather...weak I guess considering his reputation.

so far my big complaint is...

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER
Gat's and fillipe (whatever the hell his name is) death were far to meh, I didn't even know either one was dead until the characters started talking about it later. They really should have put a lot more Narm into their deaths, made it really cheesy not just Oh by the way they are dead.

Since we're complaining about character deaths, Kiki Dewynter getting her neck snapped by Killbane out of nowhere was pretty high on my "Are you fucking kidding me, that's how they die?" list for this game. SR2 was millions of times better with getting revenge. You make a guy run over his own girlfriend, you bury a man alive. Honestly only the General didn't have that great a death, but Mr.Sunshine made up for that by having one of the best deaths in the game. Now you have this pos game where only one revenge is even slightly satisfying, and where one of the gang leaders doesn't even die.

Well, just as I was 8 challenges shy of completing them all, all of my challenge stats have frozen. It happened while I was streaking; I was about 60 seconds shy of finishing it when I went to check and noticed it stopped progressing. So I tried some other challenges (distance, carjacking, mascots) and not a single one is progressing. I reloaded the manual save, reloaded the auto-save, dashboarded and restarted the game and nada. I even tried on an older save and it's frozen there too.

This officially sucks.

BTW, no I have never used a single cheat or played co-op with anyone. This is the first time anything has glitched on me at all. All of my achieves up till now have unlocked just fine (sitting at 950).

UPDATE: After loading the same save about 10 times and finally giving up and continuing on, everything suddenly started counting again about 20 minutes later. Nobody at Volition has even aknowledged any of these glitches yet.

This does contain some SPOILERS Don't read if you don't want to read spoilers


The last mission with you being on the moon was really retarded, especially the part with killbane. The deckers specialists who can teleport or whatever are really annoying, and finally how did your character not know that the mayor was Burt Reynolds? I mean even though they weren't there long you would think they your character would know who it was. aLthough I do like Reynolds character especially when you first meet him.

EDIT: Also the whole zombie thing, that was terrible. I wouldn't of minded if they would have done it differently but have them there for just one mission? It's stupid how they just put it in there just to have it invlove zombies and make you play another mission, or atleast it seems that is why they did it.

I'm hoping to have a Black Magic Intensity Shuttle either January or February, and assuming I still have this piece of shit game (and assuming their DLC continues on the path of sucking) and that I have time (in college right now), I intend to do a rant video (can't find too many positives to do a proper review) and tear this game a proper one. I still can't fathom how any reviewer (including Webb) could give this garbage anything higher than 50%. Did they not completely play this? It's awful and I wish I would have canceled this pre-order instead of AC:R (I also wish I could change the score I gave it on the game's page here, as I put my score in sometime after starting SR3 rather than when I finished it).

Axel, I would add uninspiring story. Unlike the other two, I really didn't care what was happening. It's worse than a JJ Abrahms movie.

After 100% this game today, here is my bitch list:

1. Enemies can shoot at you from entirely too far away. Seriously, you can't even see them and they're a mile away but can still hit you. Most of the time it's not a problem, but every once in a while it causes a headache.

2. They need to put those bridges down at the end of the game. They go up near the end and NEVER come back down. This becomes a big problem, especially if you have some car thefts to finish off.

3. Gangs disappearing completely after island takeovers. It makes sense, but the fact that you need them for certain challenges/assassinations makes things difficult.

4. Entirely too many abilities. I NEVER found myself calling on homies because they usually did more harm than good.

5. The assassination/car theft menu needs to be sorted by island or something, so you don't drive all over the place. Not to mention you should be able to take a stolen car to the NEAREST chop shop, not the one the game wants you to go to.

6. Some of the challenges aren't challenges. They're an exercises in frustration. (car surfing for 600 seconds, 150 human shields, 50 hostages)

7. AI on some missions are completely stupid. Especially on those damn trafficking activities. I can't tell you how much time I've wasted because the contacts wouldn't just get in the damn car.

8. Want to call a helicopter in? Well that's fine, but getting the guy to land it for you to take is an entirely other issue...

9. The Y button does ENTIRELY way too many things. I'm in the safehouse, trying to open a door but access the menu. Or I'm trying to tackle someone and jump into a car. Etc.

10. I hate the fact that Gat died right in the beginning. And it wasn't even significant. Like it didn't even matter. You don't even get to see him die. It's pathetic.

Those are the things that drove me a little bit crazy. But overall, very fun game. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

I agree with most everything everyone has said.

I feel ripped off. I really miss spraying down the rich with poo and all the other crazy side activities. They took too much out and didn't add enough in to SR3. It's way too short - main story and side quests. Which makes me think...

Will the DLC be able to add in new activities? Is that why they left some out, so that we have to pay for them? I haven't heard jack about any forthcoming DLC and I bought the season pass. For what!? I guess that's my biggest gripe. What the hell did I buy the season pass for; not to mention the collector's edition of this game.

Anyone figure out how to use the headset that came with the box set on an iPhone? That just stirred another bitch... Why include a custom headset that does NOT work with Xbox live? Seriously!? WTF!

It was the best in the series to me. Crazy story, took out things I hated like crowd control, etc. It was a bit short, I got all the achievements in like 2 days but my main complaint is just releasing the dlc so slowly. I think the last mission pack comes out a year from now?!
