SAINTS ROW: THE THIRD (MA)

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

PC/PS3/XBOX 360, $89.95/$109.95 ★★★★ The best way to de­scribe Saints Row: The Third is ‘‘big and dumb’’ — and it’s tempt­ing to tack on words like ‘‘crass,’’ ‘‘ridicu­lous’’ and ‘‘hi­lar­i­ous’’. This se­ries is re­ally hit­ting its stride, of­fer­ing GTA with­out the pre­tence or the in­tel­li­gence. Saints Row is the very def­i­ni­tion of over-the-top. Big ex­plo­sions, ma­jor col­lat­eral dam­age and bizarre sce­nar­ios blur to­gether. Play­ers drive a snarling tiger around town one minute, fire a mind­con­trol­ling oc­to­pus the next. Out now.
