Fan Outrage Focuses on Saints Row: The Third

With the recent announcement of the new Saints Row: The Third expansion pack, Enter The Dominatrix, fans were outraged. This pack was originally brought to the player’s attention on April 1st as everyone thought it was an April fool’s joke, however, now we have been informed that this is far from a joke. What THQ has is a game that they attempted to make every gamer love instead of having fans of a select genera stick with the franchise. Saints Row: The Third was intended for both fans old and new but in the end it has proven to be a bigger let down to people who previous loved the series, not to mention those who picked up their first Saints Row title as Saints Row: The Third seem to be getting a little burnt out with all the ‘fun’. What is it that drove the diehard fans of the series away from Saints Row: The Third and what is keeping new fans from continuing to love the game?

I really wish the series was more like how it was in Saints Row 2. i love the humor in the third and i ever love the game but the "over-the-top" stuff they got in it gets old fast :/ i want answers from the first games not a bunch of pointless bull crap lol

i personally loved the saints row 2 (never played 1) for it's take on the "gangster tale" being over the top and crude, but at the same time well written in a fun way. it felt like what action games would have been like if they would have developed straight from the colourful wacky era of video games, it felt fresh in comparison to todays market.

that is exactly how i feel. i just think before it was funny but still cool and gangster. now i just dont have as huge of a connection to it

I agree the secret stuff in SR2 left a cliffhanger ending that was never answered in SR3 they should continue that. Or if they are going to do an expansion do a return to stillwater expansion with the SR3 engine.

Is the DLC even worth buying? I've heard the DLC only lasts for 2-3 hours when they were supposed to be expansions.

Janitor1629d ago

No, it's crap. I got it free with season pass pre-order, and that's what it should cost everyone: $0

Gamer19821629d ago

The other DLC were a giant waste of money I bought the season pass and I wish I didn't this has put me off pre-ordering DLC in the future. Especially as this new DLC doesn't come free with it? That's a joke!

Janitor1629d ago

Yeah, that was a short "season" huh.

Dark_Overlord1629d ago

Same here, usually season pass's include ALL DLC, this joke of a pass included 4 packs? and that was it. Complete rip off, aint ever buying a season pass from them again

TheColbertinator1630d ago

Regardless I'm excited for the expansion.

ZeroChaos1630d ago

I guess it was less story driven and more weird and wacky plots. Which were really cool, but they were more like Michael Bay.

Saints Row 1 and possibly 2 had heart. In this their like the Million Dollar man, perfect in every way yet its missing its soul what made it SR.

Does thq know the meaning taking a joke too far?
