Saints Row: The Third Remastered
Top Critic Average
The "Saints Row The Third" part of Saints Row The Third Remastered is good. The "Remastered" part...not as much.
This takes place in the span of maybe 10 minutes, and it's emblematic of the stunning, baffling, audacious amount of variety in Saints Row: The Third Remastered.
Saints Row: The Third time travels to 2020 with a solid remaster. This is the same game you remember from 2011, with all of the DLC and content packs along for the ride. Developer Sperasoft has redone some of the models, especially with regards to the vehicles, and added an all-new, more realistic lighting engine. Unfortunately, it still doesn't quite measure up to the original PC release, and all the bugs of the original are still here. Still, Saints Row: The Third is a wonderful experience despite all its flaws, and that remains true of this remaster release.
Saints Row: The Third Remastered can coast on some its nostalgic value. Its multitude of upgrade systems provide the necessary carrots to fulfill a true Saints-like power fantasy and its visuals do look better than ever. And while its humor just barely gets out alive, the other parts of the game — like the incessant, anger-inducing ragdolling, banal side mission design, and lack of new content — aren’t as funny.
A "remaster" like Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy: the original content remains intact (gameplay, missions... even the flaws), and renew it all with a superb face wash, that show its best side with the light effects, reflections, models... A nice update of one great adventure that keeps giving fun like almost 10 years ago,

Saints Row: The Third Remastered is the full SR:TT experience, remastered for the actual consoles. There's a lot to do and is fun but the weight of the years is felt.

Saints Row the Third Remastered is a massive slab of fun and depravity that will remind you why this series became GTA's most successful rival
I may have wanted more out of Saints Row: The Third Remastered, but it's still as much a blast to play today as it was in 2011, and now it's prettier to boot. Grumbles aside, what more could I ask for?
Oh Saints Row. It is not you that have changed, but I.
This Genki-sized update is more than just a polish job, it's the whole enchilada. With visual upgrades and a dash of physics improvements, it's sure to draw any Saints Row fan in all over again. Now we've just gotta get rid of the Genki-sized bugs.
