I'm a huuuuuuuge Saints Row fan. I swore off preordering years ago, then went against said swearing after I heard this was coming out. Though I didn't need convincing to buy it, I will say that your review makes me want to build a time machine because I can't wait five more freakin' days to unwrap this! Great review, Tom!

And this leads to one of greatest truths about Saints Row 3. It is immaculately paced because it loves you. Most games can be insensitive clods with occasional rough patches. You get stuck for a while, or it's slow to start, or you cruise through some filler, or certain design choices are clunky, or the characters are flat and you don't care about them, or you know exactly what's going to happen next and therefore when it happens you don't care. None of this happens in Saints Row 3, which is a textbook example of how to keep me into a game from beginning to open-ended end.

I think that was the point that I needed a change of drawers...
