It just seems like there's not a whole lot there now that I look at it. I got up to about my 40th hour yesterday( I know because I had gotten the achievement for playing for 30 hours roughly 10 hours of playtime prior) and realized that I'm already at 81% completetion. All that I really have left to do is the rest of the story missions, some activities from the saints book, a few more diversions, and the rest of the sruvivals. Usually I try not to fly through games like this, but it just sorta happened. Does anyone else think it was too short? Dopesmylez 21:38, November 28, 2011 (UTC)

I thought the story missions were a little short (not the duration of the missions themselves but the completion time) were a little short. Really most of them were either Activity introductions and stronghold takeovers. (unsigned: 21:57, December 19, 2011 )

This game may feel short if you have played the previous game, its because missions don't require you to "pay" 1x respect every mission, therefore lechnically you could do all the missions without doing any activities, diversions etc. (with the exceptions of the activities in the missions themselves). If you think the game is too short you could always strive for 100% completion (and doing every Saintsbook challenge, assassination, and vehicle theft). Having every possible vehicle in the game, upgrade every weapon to the hightest level, get every upgrade on your phone, every piece of clothing AND 100% all the DLC.

I agree. It didn't just "seem" shorter, it was objectively shorter. Even if you go for 100% Completion, Saints Row: The Third has fewer things to do than in previous games.
One of the "extra" things I spent a lot of time doing in Saints Row 2 was collecting vehicles, and there are 40 fewer vehicles in Saints Row: The Third.
