This week, I've been sharing some videos of Volition's new (tremendously fun) open-world crime game Saints Row: The Third. On Monday, we saw how I start each day in Steelport, and yesterday I showed a cool refinement of its custom radio stations.
That second video was fairly low-key, so today I thought I'd delve a bit deeper into the customisation in this game. Saints Row: The Third's character creator is nothing if not far-reaching, with options for all manner of race, size, shape, crazy skin colour and even voice. What's nice about it is that it isn't all faders and sliders -- it's much more concerned with the more outsized aspects of your character. The voices are remarkable -- I tend to favour the british dude, and the voice actor really brings it. The other voices sound good too, and it's still a bit staggering that also… the zombie option, which I get into towards the end of the video.
So, take a look -- this gives another taste of the game's deep customisability, as well as its general tone of generosity to the player and goofiness. If you ever wanted to play an open-world game as a naked elderly zombie who speaks only in gutteral grunts and screeches, well… your game has arrived.
