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.
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 .
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.
I love SR3, but after downloading a couple of the DLC's, including gangsters in space, I have realised that SR3 DLC is a complete rip off. Its almost as bad as Bethesda's Oblivion horse armour when the xbox first launched... well perhaps not that bad, but its certainly one of the most meagre, short lived, low on content DLC's I have had the displeasure of paying for in a while. Its low content stuff like this that gives all DLC a bad rep with gamers, so there is no way I can recommend this to any other gamer. The asking price just isn't worth the content. In future THQ / Volition, you guys need to look at the Fallout 3 / NV and Borderlands General Knoxx DLC to see how quality (high on content) down loadable content should be done.
Terrible addon that is far from fun. This addon SHOULD OF BEEN FREE because ITS ALREADY ON THE DISK. Volition is terrible. They abusing there long time saints row series fans with this horrible game and its uber **** add ons. do NOT and i mean DO NOT buy this add on!
