The main difference here is that SR:III doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s not trying to be overly dramatic or suspenseful, it just tries to tell a fairly rudimentary story while keeping you laughing and engaged in the gameplay. It’s obvious from the beginning that the main objective here is to have as much over-the-top fun as possible.
