While you'll probably want to just run around like a maniac - and this immersive, over-the-top atmosphere is just begging for such behavior - there is a story, you know. In fact, if you're unfamiliar, here's how the plot will lay out in Saints Row: The Third. It should make the game well worth playing, especially if you can appreciate this loopy, only partially serious tone. It ain't so serious.
