While the campaign is rather short, the real bulk of the fun in this game comes from joyriding around the city with a friend destroying anything and everything. While it's definitely a solid single-player title, I don't think you can really experience all there is to offer without playing with a friend.
While I don't approve of the day one DLC, the game's $50 pricetag (rather than the standard $60 for a AAA) makes me slightly less miffed about this.
+ Beautiful graphics (cartoon-ish textures, but that's the intended style; the visual effects are excellent)
+ Performs very, very well on mid-range hardware
+ The sophomoric one-liners
+ Driving physics much improved over Saints Row 2 on PC (let's just forget that game ever existed)
+ Option to change flight controls from arcade to advanced
- Occasional issues with co-op hit detection (some NPC and vehicle positions get out of sync)
- A few instances of game "freezing" for a second (has happened on two different PCs)
= The player creator rivals anything I've seen in an Elder Scrolls game thus far. While some people like changing every fraction of an inch of the bone structure in their character's face, I like a wide variety of presets to hit the ground running. I had to spend about fifteen minutes to make my character's face look different than my brother's character (they all start at the same default). This can be a pro or con depending on personal preference, so I won't judge either way.… Expand
