    By focusing on story-based missions and a great supporting cast, Gangstas in Space proves that THQ can release compelling downloadable content for Saints Row: The Third. The three levels may be short, but it's packed full of amazing set pieces and great writing. The Third Street Saints are in fine form in this expansion pack!

    Gangstas in Space was fun to play through and I enjoyed the fact that it was story-based and fully voiced after having played through the disappointing GenkiBowl VII. On the other hand, I still expect to get more than two hours out of pay DLC, even if there's a spaceship waiting for me in my garage after I'm done.

    Just like the big budget, small brained sci-fi action movies it emulates, it won't leave you with any lasting memories, but it will entertain you nonetheless.

    Gangstas is a grand time reminiscent of the main game. It's not a must-play, but it is a good way to keep the Saints Row fun going.
  5. 50
    A lot of space madness and charming nudges to old science fiction moves doesn't change the fact that Gangstas in Space only lasts for 30 minutes, and that isn't even nearly enough.

    I liked this DLC: it's a nice and funny change of theme, with you playing the role of a actor in a B Sci-Fi movie, like the 50-60's sci-fi movies, with missions inside alien bases, and with some OVNI shooting too... and of course in the movie set where these scenarios are - the DLC is a little short, but fun (Genki Bowl is not good as this one). I would give this DLC a score of 7,0 / 10,0 . Full Review »

    I enjoyed it much more than Genki Bowl but damn. 1 hour of gameplay and 3 missions only come on.
    I liked that it had more of a story to it
    other than 1 cutscene and then 5 missions to do but its not really worth 560 MPs if i'm honest. Full Review »
