Deep Silver’s Saints Row is similar to Grand Theft Auto in that it is an open-world sandbox. Players can call in tanks and helicopters to cause mayhem. There is also a story to follow along while you cause carnage with the variety of weapons in the game. Saints Row The Third begins years after the Saints have taken over Stillwater.

The Syndicate, which is a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe demands tribute from the Saints. You must then take the fight to them at Steelport. Saints Row The Third is full of outlandish scenarios like flying tanks and satellite-targeted airstrikes.

While the game may be silly in nature its upgraded performance on next-gen is no joke. Will you be playing Saints Row The Third on either of the next-gen consoles? Let us know in the comments down below.
