You got a little TRON in my Saints Row

1 min read


A new trailer for THQ and Volition Inc’s ridiculously zany open-world sandbox actioner Saints Row the Third has hit the web, showcasing just how interesting and varied the missions can be. This one focuses on The Deckers – a group of cyber criminals and just one of the factions vying for control of the game’s fictional Steelport setting. The group is run by Matt Millar, an ambitious young cyberbully who’s taken exception with the Saints. The saints have their own computer expert in ex Intelligence Agent Kenzie Kensington, who inserts the player’s subconscious in to Millar’s user net. Ridiculous? Very much so – but it does give the devs the opportunity to shove in some TRON-styled virtual-reality gameplay. Fun!

I loved Saints Row 2’s insane, over-the-top style as opposed to the serious realism of GTAIV, so I’m excited for this – ‘cos it looks like they’ve turned the insanity dial up to 11. Saint’s Row The Third hits PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 mid November.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
