Saints Row: The Third im Test - Internationalen Wertungen im Überblick - Weitere Spielspaßwertungen
Zwar sind noch keine offiziellen Online-Reviews zu Saints Row: The Third erschienen, zwei Wertungen von Magazinen sind aber bereits ins Internet geleakt worden. Wie Saints Row: The Third bei den ersten internationalen Tests abgeschnitten hat, lest ihr bei uns. Update: Es gibt weitere Tests, auch online.
Update: Wir haben neue Testwertungen zu Saints Row The Third für euch. Diese listen wir mit Links am Ende dieser Zeilen. Originalmeldung: Das Open World-Actionspiel Saints Row: The Third steht am 18.11 im Handel. Schon jetzt sind erste Wertungen von internationalen Magazinen ins Internet durchgesickert. So wird auf Neogaf berichtet, dass das Magazin Play UK Saints Row_ The Third mit 88% recht gut bewertet. "Es gibt Probleme und Nachteile, aber insgesamt ist Saints Row: The Third absolut schamlos und übertrieben lustig", so das Fazit.
Das australische Magazin Hyper vergibt 9 von 10 möglichen Punkten. Noch sind nicht mehr Tests im Internet aufgetaucht. Die bisherigen Wertungen versprechen allerdings die erwartete, völlig übertriebene Actionkost, die man erwartet. Zu bedenken ist allerdings, dass Saints Row: The Third in Deutschland geschnitten auf den Markt kommt - das wurde in den internationalen Tests zu Saints Row: The Third natürlich nicht beachtet.
GamePro - 4/5
I'm not ashamed in my adoration of Saint's Row: The Third. It's juvenile, it occasionally objectionable (I'm sorry, I just don't like blasting away at bikini models, even if they are trying to kill me too) and sometimes after playing I feel like I should go take a shower. But I can't remember a game I've played recently that was so dedicated to letting the gamer have as much fun as possible any way they want to. And when it comes to having fun, Saints Row: The Third is like a big party that you don't want to see stop.
1Up - B+
Saints Row: The Third is so crazy and over-the-top that you can't go wrong with this game -- provided that you're the sort that would appreciate the game's knowingly juvenile sense of humor.
IGN - 8.5 / 10
News flash: people find sex and violence entertaining. Saints Row: The Third gives the people what they want and drops us into an open world adult theme park where we can treat ourselves to delightful acts of bloodshed and perversion. It doesn't take itself too seriously and only asks that you don't, either.
Destructoid - 7/10
As a huge fan of the last game, I want to shout this sequel's merits from the rooftops, but while the experience is often amusing and littered with some remarkable moments, I cannot help but feel a little let down by the final product. It's still a good game at its core, but it's not a patch on its predecessor, as it seems to have forgotten about Saints Row 2's achievements in its blinkered pursuit of extremity. It took me over two weeks to beat Saints Row 2, and I still wanted to stay in Stilwater. I concluded Saints Row: The Third in less than two days and feel no compulsion to return to Steelport anytime soon. So it is that a game that aimed to be the most outrageous chapter of the series has ended up, if anything, as the least remarkable.
GamesRadar - 10 / 10
Saints Row has always been seen as something of an also-ran, but The Third finally says, in no uncertain terms, that it's just as big and even more fun than its more serious competition. Some might be tempted to dismiss the game because of its extreme wackiness, but know that at its core, the game is incredibly well crafted and ceaselessly fun. While the comedies typically lose out to the dramas come awards time, none of it changes the fact that Saints Row: The Third is one of the best games of the year, and given this year's competition, that's no small compliment.
GameTrailers: Video-Review - 7,7 / 10
Official Xbox Magazin - 95/100
Feels like a game whose designers have found the note-perfect tone for the series while also wielding their own talents with razor-sharp precision. It's the game Volition - a studio whose successes go back 15 years to the original Descent - was born to make.
Play UK - 88/100
It has its issues, it has its drawbacks, but Saints Row: The Third is an utterly wanton, totally ridiculous bag of laughs. It's difficult to dislike anyway, and even harder to dislike with such an enjoyable, escalatory campaign. Great stuff.
