Game Informer Rating:

Rated 8.0 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy with ATI There are dozens of users who have had the same issues as me: 1. You have to deactivate multi-core processors. 2. In-game notes from characters freeze the game. 3. Game runs slow. A patch exists, but it does not seem to help. What I was able to play was a great game, but it's just so buggy it's not worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for explorers If you're like me and you love First-Person Shooters,and Racing games, then this is the perfect game for you. You get to kill SS scum, and then later you get to race fast race cars. Win Win situation! The only thing I wish was a little better was the steering on the cars. Maybe even make it adaptable with a wheel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Realistic Review... Okay, so I've played The Saboteur for a few hours now and I can honestly say that despite it's flaws, it's not a bad game. The game surrounds Sean, an Irishman with a penchant for drinking heavily, smoking constantly and womanizing to a fault. Sounds like your stereotypical Irishman? Eh, maybe in a video game. Oh wait... Early on in the game, the Nazi's give Sean a reason, a purpose, to fight back. I won't ruin your potential experience with the story here, but I can honestly say that it was one of the more "legit" and "believable" reasons for an individual to go vigilante, especially in the face of such overwhelming odds. Instead of just meeting your less-than-responsible and over exaggerating cousin who proceeds to get you into more unbelievable and less-than-survivable scenarios than the latest immigrant can shake a stick at (yeah, I'm looking at you GTA4), you are presented with a single reason to fight back. Hey, if extremely bad stuff happened to you, you'd probably be out for blood too, proverbial or literal, am I wrong? Anyway, specifics. Graphics? They're not exactly cutting-edge, but I have to admire the visual impact of going from French Resistance-occupied areas, full of color, life and vibrancy, to the bleak, black and white, red-highlighted Nazi-occupation areas. It FEELS like you're in a bad part of town. Film Noir you're-about-to-catch-a-bullet type feel. I enjoyed the stylized presentation of the dark nature of Nazi occupation in France. Control? Well, they're not the most polished thing on the block, but they're your average sandbox-style control. WSAD, mouse clicks, scrolling, spacebar-for-E-brake type stuff. Easy enough to get used to. The one thing about the control in this game is the cars. The cars go WAY too fast most of the time. As an aside, most of them sound like Aston Martin's instead of old school vehicles from the 1940's. Controls are pretty loose in cars, but if you're used to any racing game made for recent consoles, you'll find it pretty easy to get used to. Unbelievable, but it hits the mark. The other part that I like about Sean is he's not one of these guys who's limited by his surroundings. Need to infiltrate an area and the only way in is guarded by 2304928304529590235 Nazis? Climb the building next door and use one of the power lines to zip-line into enemy territory undetected. Story? I think it's pretty darned good, actually. It's one of the few games I've played in my life where I actually feel some connection to the main character, some reason to keep playing, like the story is never quite finished and I have to keep playing to make sure this guy finishes what he started. Stability? Well, I read a review here that stated the player had problems with constant freezes and crashes. I can't say I've experienced that to such an extreme. I've had maybe one freeze up since I started playing, other than that, the only complaint I have about the game is the speed at which many things load. I won't wave my computer-power flag from this corner and say that every game should bow to my computer's immense and power plant-destroying capacity, but it's safe to say I can run this game well. But hitting Escape to load the in-game menus takes just a little longer than it should. It's not bad when you're just relaxing and trying to play, but if you're in the middle of a mission or a heated chase/firefight, it can be annoying when all you want is a quick peek at the map then BAM! Back to the action. Really worth complaining about? Not so much, but I thought I'd bring it up. Overall, I like the game. It's a good spin from the GTA fare, but feels very similar in its execution, so hopefully the fans of that series will give this one another chance before passing it by next time. I'd recommend this to anyone who's into sandbox games with some new and interesting twists. Have fun people, game hard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY! Before anyone assumes I'm not running this game on a powerful enough system, know that I'm playing it on a 2.66 ghz Intel quad core 2 processor with 4.00 gb ram and an ATI Radeon HD 5750 on Windows 7. Connected to a 25" 1080p HD monitor.Now let me say that this game has great potential. It starts off good, and stays good as long as you don't have to pause the game. Ever. Every single time I pause it, the game freezes and requires anywhere from 2-5 ctrl+alt+del's to unfreeze. No exceptions. This means no viewing the map, no changing options in game, and no accessing any of the other features I'm not sure exist, since I can't see them. Also sometimes the game freezes on load screens, and don't count on ctrl+alt+del to save you there. These ones require a complete restart.Next, If you make it as far as the mission where you steal the wine (within an hour or so of playing) don't expect to get any further. I stole the wine and the game didn't register it at all. Making it impossible to complete the mission. I have reloaded the previous checkpoint 5 or 6 times and every time I steal the wine it still doesn't detect it. This game is a bag of crap. F-
