Saints Row: The Third is an enjoyable, if frequently tasteless, open world action game that proves to be a surprisingly good fit for handheld play.
Is the Switch version of Saints Row: The Third a technical disappointment? Yes. There is nothing new in this version, so if you’ve played the original game, you won’t see anything new in here. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have a lot of fun with this game, as you’re now able to play one of the most over-the-top and hilarious games ever made on-the-go.
The surprises are still worth keeping for new players or returning players that have forgotten. Volition made a glorious commentary on open-world games by going in the complete opposite direction of its direct competitors. While Rockstar outputs challenging and punishing simulations, the Saints Row franchise still just wants to sit back and hang out. The masterful character work and slowly building absurdity prove that this game isn’t just a joke, even if it does have a giant purple dildo bat in it.
