    Saints Row The Third Remastered has done a good job of touching up the original. All of the DLC content that has been added to the title should encourage those interested to pick this up. Fans of the series that missed this one would definitely enjoy this instalment. Those interested in GTA style games should give this game – or at least this series – a try as there is a lot of fun to be had here.

    In the end Saints Row The Third Remastered is a reminder that the style of action seen in Grand Theft Auto and Crackdown can find a cartoonish and juvenile middle-ground. A place where the concept of gangs and friendship is both comic and grounded. A place where player freedom lets you make your mark on the world with style and a distinct lack of grace. With the fourth Saints Row leaning ever more into the absurd, thanks to a plot that deals with alien invasions and virtual realities, Saints Row The Third Remastered is arguably the series at its best.

    Saints Row: The Third Remastered is an impressive return to this title. The developer went out of their way to bring this title back with plenty of upgrades and overhauls to make it feel like we remember. I do wish the game remained locked at 60fps on the newer consoles, even if it sacrificed some of the resolution though. As it stands this is the best version of the game to date and a perfect excuse for me to overrun Steelport once again.

    Running around, shooting people, stealing cars and shoving grenades down throats. That’s what you want from a Saints Row game. Newcomers to the franchise will enjoy the heck out of it, but longtime fans won’t find anything new. Pretty, but not new.

    With some huge visual improvements, the remastered version of Saints Row 3 is one of the best remasters in the current generation, period.

    Saints Row: The Third Remastered is definitely a success. Here is a highly polished version of the game that fans love – still fun, exciting, but now also beautiful.

    Saints Row 3 is mechanically the best the series has ever been, and narratively the worst it's ever been, leaving this born-too-late remaster a mixed bag.

    An amazing remaster that makes the game look and feel new and fresh without removing the games wacky charm.

    Quite interesting game play. Diverse cars and flights. But limited weapons. Graphic is not that fantastic. The price is still expensive

    Wer den Titel bisher noch nicht gespielt hat sollte dies jetzt nachholen . Ein wahrer „Klassiker“

Updates have fixed many of the glitches that were prevalent on launch. This is one of the enjoyable GTA clones ever made. It's certainly more fun than challenging. And the non-stop silly humor is often quite funny. This is a must play for fans of Xbox 360-era open-world action titles. I would rate this with an 8.1 out of 10. Expand

Xbox One gamers get the deluxe treatment with carefully updates as in more detailed artwork, revamped lighting, a switch to physically based rendering, anti-aliasing and a profound improvement in overall performance. If you're gaming on Xbox One X, much of the game even plays out at 60fps. Just shy of a full-on remake, you aren't going to get a much better remaster than on offer. All of the new features delivered by Sperasoft for this new release are present and correct with the only notable differences coming from rendering resolution. The Xbox One operates at 1080p, while their enhanced equivalents bump the pixel count to 1440p. The game runs at a capped at a solid 30 frames per second, backed by a nice motion blur implementation that gives the impression of a very smooth level of performance overall. The options menu gives users the choice to remove the frame-rate cap, allowing the game to run as fast as it can. For the original Xbox One users in particular, it's not something recommend as the variance in frame-rate adds too much inconsistency to the gameplay experience. Xbox One X makes a pretty good fist of hitting the top-end 60fps, and can stay like that for extended periods of play time, with only a touch of dropped frames when the game is pushed really hard in certain lighting conditions. The default 30fps on its own is a huge improvement, and even when Xbox One dips beneath the target, it's still a gigantic improvement over the original game. Already, a compelling case is growing for a Saints Row The Third remaster purchase comprehensively addressing the original's frame rate challenges already makes it a better game to start with. Everything you need to know about the Saints Row The Third remaster in video form. There's a level of care and attention here that goes above and beyond expectations. I was immediately struck by how clean the game looks as Sperasoft uses temporal anti-aliasing and upscaling for a very stable and consistent presentation with very little shimmer. Then there are the content upgrades while the developer doesn't want to change the game as it's Saints Row The Third as it should have been. Going back to the original game today, it jut doesn't hold up. Environments are revamped with both primary and secondary characters possessing much more detail. The scenes are more dense, using more props. On top of that, there are more cars and people wandering the city streets which is another way overall density is improved. Vehicles remade, weapons improved, particle effects are better, with improved lighting. The remastered lighting system looks immensely improved with an impressive HDR implementation. Suffice to say, it's still Saints Row The Third, but with a full revamp that ensures that the game looks good on modern displays while importing a huge array of today's tech that aid in retaining the feel of the original game while bringing it up to date. Add in the impressive performance modes and it's pretty much the complete package. Saints Row The Third as a game is superb fun and it's a game that deserves the care and attention it has received and perhaps this kind of technological and monetary investment is indicative of efforts to re-invigorate the franchise? If you've never played the original you're in for a real treat on your Xbox One. If you have played the original you will definitely enjoy revisiting, especially if you are gaming on the Xbox One X.

I was playing on an Xbox One X with the framerate setting unlocked and managed a pretty smooth 60 most of the time. But unfortunately, it's core gameplay elements have aged way too poorly to be a strong recommend here. I think you can get some fair enjoyment here if you were a fan of original but even then, I just don’t think it’s going to hold it long enough to be worth the asking price. A heavy discount for sure.
