Saints Row 3 (PS 3) question

Anyone play this game? I just bought it because the back of the box made it look cool. But the first thing I do (robbing a bank) and all the characters look like bobble-heads. Is this how they look throughout?

Those are mascot costumes used to disguise the protagonist and his crew...

Did you skip the opening cutscene or something? Because it shows them putting on the costumes.

Saint's Row 3 is a crazy, stupid comedy that's not intended to be taken seriously, and if you engage with it on that level it is a lot of fun.

Yeah, fun game. Got it for free through PS+. It's what I've been playing on the PS3 lately.

Re: Saints Row 3 (PS 3) question

If you end up liking SR3 and want to continue on with the series, it might be a good idea to play the first two games before moving on to SR4, as there's a lot of references to the earlier games scattered throughout SR4. I've never been able to play SR1 since it was never released on PC, but I had a blast with SR2. While the engine's not as purty as SR3/4's (and it's supposedly one of the worst PC ports ever,) there's WAY more depth, detail, story and gameplay in it. SR3 feels really shallow by comparison. Definitely worth checking out.

Re: Saints Row 3 (PS 3) question

The original Saints Row was basically a GTA knockoff, albeit with much witty banter, and it didn't have any customisability. SR2 took that and turned it into a hilarious total pisstake that was nonstop madcap fun, and introduces the customisable boss character.

So I'd advise starting with SR2, really.

Also, SR1 was not released on PS3, was a Xbox exclusive title...

SR1 was plenty customisable, arguably even moreso than SR3. You could only play as a male character, you couldn't choose a voice (as the character had no voice), and you couldn't customise your gang (as the protagonist wasn't the leader of the Saints yet), but your appearance, clothing, vehicles, and other things were customisable.

I would also disagree that SR1 was wittier than the GTA games, I thought the attempts at humour in SR1 were really poor. Half the time in that game I struggled to tell if it was trying to be serious or humorous because it was so awkwardly written. The radio advertisements were the worst, they came across as really forced. SR2 was when they finally nailed what the games were about, and the huge improvement in humour over the first game was a big part of that.
