How to fix S.R.3 crashing during startup on Windows 10
Windows 10 acting like a dirty hoe to your beloved Saints Row 3? Wanna fix it? You've found your resolution, my friend. Yes, pictures are included, for any of you 'visual learners.' If you have trouble with any step of the guide, leave a comment with the p...
Saints Row The Third, as you can tell from the title, is the 3rd game of the franchise. I would say SR3 is the weakest game of the series, but the whole series is very good and very strong. In terms of the whole series, SR2 is my fav, hands down. I will end up comparing SR2 and 3 a lot in this review.
After the events of SR2, the Saints become total sellouts and go from being a badass gang, into celebrities. Right away this makes it not as interesting than the second game. As a great man once said, "Where Saints Row 2 is silly but is still grounded, Saints Row 3 drinks whackers aid from a clown's shoe." The game doesn't really give a reason on why things are happening. It just does things "Because it looks cool and has lots of action, AND EXPLOSIONS!!" The progression in this game is sloppy. The fact you can max out your character and achieve near god mode before you even finish Act 1! On top of that, this game throws you attack choppers and tanks pretty much right at the beginning of the game, taking away what little challenge this game offers.
The new gang members you get to join in your crew are all well written out and are all entertaining and fun to have around. Not only can you have a luchador named Angel who Hulk Hogen voices, but you can have Burt Mother F***ing Reynolds join you!
The character customization is, sadly, a step back from what SR2 had. SR2 had the ability where you could make a shemale, or the ugliest thing to ever grace the planet. Now you only have 2 gender options with nothing in between, where all males looked ripped to super f**king huge ripped, and females are always smexy looking. There is color options to make your character to look red or neon green. The clothing options have also took a step back. SR2 clothing options allowed for multiple layers like undershirt, shirt, dress coat, jacket, scarf, etc. The clothing options in SR3 is now upper body, lower body, head, shoes, etc. You can still make some great characters though!
The vehicles have been improved in terms of handling. The driving/flying in SR2 was a little wonky and could be aggravating at times (mostly the flying.) Thankfully they have improved them in SR3. The only drawback is the vehicle customizing is a little lackluster and not very interesting. Like I stated above though, this game just gives you attack choppers and tanks pretty much close to the start of the game, so it makes it too easy.
SR3 has many "Activities" to complete, which all involve driving around killing things, or running around killing things, or just drive around real fast. None of them are really new in terms of the SR2 activities.
The weapons in this game, I felt like they didn't have enough "weight" to them. I personally found them to not feel powerful enough, or feel like I was actually shooting the weapons. They just felt like they were going "pew pew pew" and not much else. I mostly just stuck to using the RPG when I hit infinite ammo just so I could kill people and move on.
The radio stations are great. You have everything from Metal, classical, rock/punk, the Adult Swim station that plays music from the shows like Metalocalypse and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, to pop music as well.
The graphics in this game still hold up today. They still look great and the game runs at a smooth 60FPS. Never had the game crash on me. The world of Steelport has tons of detail in it, like all the clothing stores such as Let's Pretend having a lot of cool stuff in it.
The only problem I really noticed was the sound. I've had where even if an NPC was standing in front of me, the audio from them sounded like it was coming from way behind me. A minor complaint though.
There is a co-op mode to play with a friend... 1 friend though. This has 2 player co-op, which is sad cause this game would have been much better if you were able to have 4 people in a game, even if you were not able to do missions, but just go around the city doing stuff.
Pros: - Good character creator. - Good selection of music. - Great open world. - Great characters. (Burt Mother F***ing Reynolds!!) - Ok story. - Over the top sillyness/action. - Co-op. - Easy achievements. (Only took me 46 hours to 100% complete everything.) - Steam Cards.
Cons: - Not as strong as Saints Row 2 in many ways. - Gets very repetitive in terms of being "crazy/over the top." - Most of the filler is activities and not so much in story. - Most DLC is pointless or offers very little in terms of content. - Only has 2 player co-op. - Can't be a shemale (TRIGGERED)
The game is a solid 8/10 from me. (Saints Row 2 being a 9/10.) If you are looking for a "FUN" open world game that doesn't take things serious, this is a great game to pick up and have fun with a friend.
So, I was trying to play with one of my friends in co-op earlier
But when I try to join her (or when she tried to join me), we both get the error saying we both need to be playing the same version.
We both got SR3 from the franchise pack, so we have all ...
