I had never heard of this game so I wasn't expecting much when I bought it for $20. I started playing this game and couldn't stop. I like everything about this game. You are a sabateur and you get to destroy stuff!! The contols are solid and the graffics are pretty good. The only thing I don't care much for is the audio, it can be annoying at times, however if you are stealthy and can get through the challenges undetected then you won't have to worry about it. This game could take forever if you wanted it to and the challenges aren't easy. The Sabateur has about everything as far as gameplay goes. It's like GTA and Splinter Cell combined on an open world map. You can go anywhere in the game. I can't say enough about this game. I haven't seen one thing with this game that isn't good. I would recomend this game to anyone looking for something diferent to play to keep other games from getting stale.
Assassin's Creed Meet Inglorious Bast*rds
Pandemic's The Saboteur is a game that I had at one time, but had re-acquired the game a few weeks ago. I hadn't been a fan of 3PS, but after the Dead Space and Assassin's Creed franchises and Silent Hill: Homecoming I decided to give The Sabotuer another try. The aspect of The Saboteur that drew me in was the color scheme reminiscent of Frank Miller's Sin City. The black and white with shades of color gave the game a noir feel. The soundtrack is very understated in The Saboteur with jazz legends like Ella Fitzgerald. This soundtrack made driving around a pleasure and, at times, I found myself just driving around listening. The gameplay was almost identical to that of Assassin's Creed just substitute Enzio for Sean. The main difference being that Sean can switch out into Nahhzi uniforms adding an additional stealth option. There are side missions in addition to the main plot which makes the open world exploring lovely.....nothing seems an excess in this game. Five minutes into the game and I am glad I gave The Saboteur another shot.
Not Bad but.....same old GTA style
Overall this game isnt that bad. Graphics are good along with the sound. The story is very good and has alot of depth to it, along with the game play itself is very good. The controls are just like GTA so there very easy to get used to... BUT the climbing in this game is bad, its easy to climb up buildings no problem, getting down on the other hand is another story. you never know if Sean (the main character) is going to grab the ledge or just fall to his death and theres no way of telling when its going to happen. I have die by falling more then the Nazi gun fire. And the other thing is the damn darkness of Paris when in occupied parts of the city, its so dark that you can see people or things like guns on the ground. and some times its hard to shoot at enemys cause of the darkness of the game. I under stand the darkness and do agree it gives this game a little more depth and sets the mood but sometimes its very anoying. IF you like GTA games then you will like this game.
The open world genre is old enough to have its own walker by now, but this game brings plenty of new ideas. Most games set in ww2 are very similar to each other but this one is different. Saboteur is a game about the resistance in and around France in a long and open world thats full of different objectives. The main mission lasts around 20 hours while there's plenty of side missions like racing, sniping important enemies, blowing up enemy tanks and bases. By doing this, you gain contraband which is used to upgrade and buy weapons and vehicles as well as buy perks such as calling in back up. Most of the missions revolve around killing him or blowing up that or racing this, but there are a few plot twists and the destruction is top notch. Combat is a mix between the creed series since you can climb buildings to gain an advantage and gta with cover based shooting. The enemies and guns remind me some of wolfenstein. Some are true weapons and enemies used in WW2 while others were supernatural. The graphics are a little dated, but Paris still looks very impressive, but the countryside is a little on the lean side as far things to do and see. The one thing I didnt like about the game was that the sections of Paris the enemy controlled showed up in black and white while the liberated sections were shown in color. It was an innovative feature, but the graphics suffered a little in black and white. The game also has some humor and your character, Sean is somewhat funny/annoying. The game also has some adult content. Overall, the game is awesome. The mixed combat and destructible enviroment are some of the best I've seen in an open world.
So i am INCREDIBLY sick of first peson shooters so i desided to get games that were made a while back that i looked over, so i picked up this game and it is so fun i havent put it down for hours. The story is gripping and there is realy no open world infamous climbing, assassins creed sneaking and gta killing game and its so different that it acctualy works and is realy fun. Paris is fun to climb around and explore, and the main character (Sean) has to be the best protagonist in a video game in a while. I mean, where else can you find a hardend alcoholic, womanizer (who smokes alot) irishman besides the sabotuer? exactly. NOWHERE. So pick up this game, its alot o' fun.
Nice Job EA
The saboteur...a GTA like game where you are a guy named Sean killing some bad guys.Unlike other world war II games, the saboteur is a free world game. Good game overall.. never actually beat it but it was fun. It is also an easy game to get trophies in. So i liked this game for...amazing graphics, a good story line, and having fun shooting people. Another good thing about it is it isn't too expensive so you don't have to pay all of what you own like on other games. So just i have one more thing to say...Nice Job EA.
Pretty Good Overall
I bought this game the weekend after Christmas along with the new Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted 2. I gave each game their equal share but found myself going back to the RC and U2. The Saboteur just felt clunky and uninspired and the missions were so boring. I had made up my mind to shelf it altogether. I then started thinking back to the reviews the game was receiving and decided to try it again. So last night I put the game back in and made myself sit and play it. You know what? The longer I played the more I enjoyed it. Sure things were clunky and at times there was too much on the screen at one time but I got over it. I then realized that this game is NOT Uncharted 2 and it's NOT Ratchet and Clank, it's a game all in it's own. I really enjoy driving around 1940's France and hey you can even check out a Burlesque show if you wish. The game reminds me of a weird GTA and Assassin's Creed hybrid at least control wise and the ability to sneak and hide is a nice touch. If your hesitant and your a casual gamer and not a hardcore button masher I say purchase. It's a good time...
Assassin's Creed/GTA All in One
First time writing review. Great game and playability. Only wish some of the graphics were just a little better. When fighting Germans, they look like paper or cardboard cutouts. Other than that, the visions of Paris and surrounding countryside are great. You have the climbing and escaping of Assassin's Creead, the escapes and evasion by car remind me of GTA. Some of the action (sniping and fighting Germans) has some resemblance of early COD. Overall great game and with over 30 missions/scenarios, plenty for everyone. Escape scenarios and climbing up/down could be more user friendly (seem to stall at times, causing you to move controls opposite of what you really want to do), but not a show-stopper. Also, aiming/firing weapon could be a little more user-friendly, but again not a show-stopper. Hope they come out with a sequel but improve on the enemy graphics. High replay value.
Best game ever played in the olden days feature !!!
GTA set in Nazi Occupied France
Where to start? Graphics - unfortunately i am stuck in the UK for 6months without my HD LCD TV, but the game still looked great using the oldschool RCA's. The color contrasts of black and white vs the reds on the Nazi flags/outfits is a great effect. Sound - Like in GTA games, you can listen to the radio when driving around. the music is from the 40s, and very appropriate for the game in general. storyline - the storyline is pretty cool, and does a great job using flashbacks to tell the story. the irish character is spot on, and all his mannerisms are very authentic. challange - some missions required many play thoughs in order to figure out the best approach, and every level had many different ways to complete. i would say perfect level of challange. Overall this is a great game for fans of Grand Theft auto, and changes up the scenery being set in WWII
