SAW: The game

Recommended Posts

Ok ok I know what you're thinking, "A game of SAW? Just close to the release of SAW VI? Cash in cow!" Yeah so it's probably true but cash in cow or not, the game seems to be actually pretty good according to various reviews. It's no masterpiece by all means and suffers from horrible combat and some repetitive puzzles but the transition from film to game has been done quite well with nice attention to detail thanks to Unreal 3 engine and excellent voice acting. The game's out on 360 and PS3 and comes out on PC just before Halloween;

I'm not a massive fan of SAW despite what some of you might think, the first film was excellent and the second was pretty good but after that it's just been downhill.. Might put this on the Christmas list anyway because it'll be cheap and I wont need to pay for it :P

6.5 and 7.5 ??? those are awful scores dont we all know that the review scores map like this

0/10 = -10

8/10 = 0

10/10 = 10

i quit liked the first saw but thought everything since was unnecessary

I've watched all the walkthrough, this has to be one of the most repetitive games ever.. seriously. The same 4 puzzles have been repeated about 10 times, it's rediculous. It's also the same gameplay throughout, go through door with trap, press the correct button to avoid dying, search filing cabinets for supplies, avoid the guys who want the key inside your chest (who can only say "THIS IS YOUR FAULT" or "JUST GIVE ME WHAT I WANT!" about 300 times etc. Repeat until bored shitless... also why the Hell doesn't A) Tapp steal someone's shoes from the many corpses he creates or B) use his clothing to cover his feet (Die Hard, you influenced so much...) that way he doesn't wince everytime he steps on broken glass.

Whilst not as bad as most film-game conversions (as a game of SAW it works very well) it's still pretty cack handed, this could have been a good game if they'd thought a bit more about it, I suspect Konami were being gay and wanting them to hit the deadline ready for the release of SAW VI as mentioned before.

Sentura; Watch the first one, then maybe the second whilst avoiding the others like the plague.
