The Saints are back in this crazy, over-the-top sandbox game which pushes plenty of boundaries. If you want an excuse to mess about, this is it.
|9||Some sandbox games are well respected for their realism. After all, it takes a lot to create a city, populate it, give players a chance to live in a virtual parody of reality, and at the same time do so in a way that draws players in an makes them feel they truly are in an enclosed living breathing world. Well grounded characters have to blend together with a physics engine that makes sense, because players are always going to be searching for that one thing that feels too inconsistent with what we know about the world today. So it's fairly impressive how well Saints Row: The Third draws in players considering that every ounce of realism is tossed right out the door within the first ten minutes, giving players an amazingly wild ride that features some of the most memorable (and believable) characters you'll ever have the pleasure of playing with in a sandbox game. |
