I'm playing through the campaign of Saints Row 3, and at certain times you're presented with a choice about how to proceed. There are achievements for choosing each path. Right now I'm saving before each of these choices, in the hopes that I can just come back and choose the opposite path later.

If I miss one (or overwrite a save) is there another way to get these achievements? When the game is complete, can I replay missions? Or would I have to start from the beginning again?

I, too, saved before each choice, and I can confirm that you are able to then play through the mission and choose the other option to make the achievement pop.

After you complete the game, unfortunately, you cannot replay all of the missions. There's no Theater or Newspaper option in Saints Row: The Third, like there was in the first two games, unfortunately.

The last mission you have a choice is the mission Three Way, where you

need to choose whether to save Shaundi or kill Killbane.

Whichever option you decide to do, you'll get a notification at the end of the mission that you've finished the game, and you can replay the final mission to see the outcome of the other choice (in fact, you can only go see the other outcome; you can't replay the option you chose first). However, this is the only time ingame where you'll be able to replay the same mission.

If you accidentally save over your saves before the other missions, your only option is to replay through the storyline. Remember though, there's still the "Gender Equality" achievement, which requires you to Play for at least 2 hours as a male character AND 2 hours as a female character. What you can do is play through the game again on the opposite gender from your first playthrough to get the achievement for this. If you just go straight through the storyline, it shouldn't take you very long.

I'll note that the "Gender Equality" achievement can be unlocked in a single game, by visiting a plastic surgeon. Surprisingly, they can switch your gender for you as well... –  agent86 Nov 27 '11 at 1:59
