Saints Row was a GTA clone that stood out only because it was earnestly pretty good. Maybe more homage than clone? The sequel was mostly more of the same, then came Saints Row The Third which really dialed up the game's scope and took the first leap forward with the series. Released originally on the latest hardware in 2011, the nine years that have passed have ushered in a new generation and now the game is coming to those shores as well.
Saints Row The Third - Remastered is out today for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The game is ridiculous, as the trailer below shows, but it comes off as fun, whacky ridiculous not the smh type. The remastered version roots itself in the expanded city of Steelport; includes enhanced graphics, improved lighting, reworked environments, and visual effects; all the over the top weaponry the series is famous for including hover jets and human cannonball cars; crazy character customization options; co-op play; and all the 30 different pieces of DLC from the original game.

Saints Row: The Third Remastered gives you control of the Saints at the height of their power, and you live the life to show for it. This is your city. These are your rules. Remastered with enhanced graphics, Steelport - the original city of sin - has never looked so good as it drowns in sex, drugs and guns.
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute.
Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and fight against a highly-trained military force by your lonesome in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen.
The Full Package, Remastered – With enhanced graphics, improved lighting, reworked environments, and visual effects, Steelport and The Third Street Saints have never looked so good.
City of Sin – Disrupt and dismantle the Syndicate stranglehold on weapons, cybercrime, and criminal rackets. Discover the secrets of Steelport, where there is action on every street corner, for better or, more likely, worse.
Weapons of Crass Destruction – It’s one thing to defeat your enemies. It’s another to humiliate them. Hover jets, human cannonball cars and outrageous melee weapons are all part of the fun.
Crazy Character Customisation – Create the most outlandish characters ever seen, from washed-up celebrities to maskless ninja pirates. Inside every sinner, there is a Saint. Who will you become?
Over The Top Co-op – Fly solo or play online with a homie. Give freefall skydiving a try, landing in your partner’s flaming pickup as you make a desperate run toward a heavily armed Syndicate base. Steelport is always more fun with a friend.
All DLC included – All three expansion mission packs and more than 30 pieces of DLC from the original version.
