Rated 10 out of 10 by tonyf pandemics last great game
this was the last game for pandemic studios and they sure made one heck of a game. i had been following this game since it was announced several years ago. the black and white mixed with color looks simple amazing. the whole time youre playing you actually feel like youre in the 1940s, with the exception of i didnt know strippers had thongs back then. the game is in my opinion kind of like a mix of assassins creed mixed with a lil gta. it plays and looks simply amazing. as you go through the story you earn perks that make your skills even stronger. some of the missins are a lil tough but nothing most people couldnt handle. if you die though you can either load the game from the last mission or start at your hq in which case youll have to get your weapons back from a black market person. after a couple of years the wait is finally over for this game and it was well worth the wait. so if you have the cash defintley buy this game its amazing and loads of fun, plus you get to blow stuff up
Rated 10 out of 10 by nosleep From bad to GREAT
When i 1st bought this game i was extreamly bored and i just whanted something to play. When i started playing i tought wow this game must be the worst game i ever played and i was ready to trade it in for something else, but i decided to give it another shot mabe it will get better and to my surprise it did. I love how u have perks and different kind of challanges, makes the game play very addicting, the misions are mabe repetitive but u never notice that because they are very fun, the main story line tough its very original and i got hooked very fast. Like most people say, this game is a combination between assasins creed (u can climb buildings) and GTA . There is a large number or weapons and cars u can unlock, and in my opinions i think that chosing France was a great idea because there are not too many games that chose this Country. To add to this bag of awsomness, if u buy the addon or receve the code in the box, u get a special treat in the VIP room at the bar . ;) . This wonderfull game is great and a must have :)
Rated 10 out of 10 by VJR1031 Wi monsieur, that is a dead Nazi.
This is definatley the sleeper hit of the year and shocker to add. First, download the Midnight Show add-on for a bigger shocker that I am sure the Mothers Against Video Gaming are having nitemares about. All I will say is " It's a CABARET ole chum!" If you know your history you will know what I mean. The game plays like the GTA series, but you make the Nazi army squirm everytime you sabotage their property or troops. It's even better to sabotage and run like hell as they look for you and they will look for you. The only issue I have is the Perks are hard to do and the frame rate chops once in awhile but the overall graphics are simply awesome. You start out in a gray world with rain and crows and as you hurt the Nazi regime you see this world slowly come back to life with blue sky, color and animals A truly unique idea. This is a new twist to WW2 shooters and you have been waiting to join the French Resistance this is a dream come true.
Rated 10 out of 10 by superstar5 You gotta get this game
I love this game, and I recommend this game. The graphics are amazing and the sound and music makes you feel like your right there in world war 2. It really makes you hate the nazi. The game is definitly for adults though alot of nudity and vulgar language. The game controles are smooth, but climbing up onto roofs is soooo slow. The weapons are okay there basic but theres is alot of them but theres no customization on the weapons. You can stock up on cars and put armor on them and weapons. The sniper rifles really arent that good they dont make you feel like a sniper or assasin. They just pretty much shoot and they fall nothing spectacular or nothin. The game is very long and alot to do in it. Even the side missions are fun and you acually want to do them. The story is okay your friend dies and you do everything possible to get the guy responsible for it. If you like assasin creed or grand theft auto you will love this game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by TwistedK1llshot It's Good
The Saboteur takes you to german occupied Paris, as a saboteur your mission is to put together a resistance and rise up to force the german's out of Paris. Gameplay wise the game plays solid the controls are a little sensitive I found myself running past a ladder or wall I was trying to climb, but in time you will get used to it. The graphics are not anything revolutionary, but they are good. What does stand out in the visuals is the color pallet, when an area is under german control the area is dark and grey and once you liberate the area the color is restored which makes the color look more vivid. As for the story, it's as expected good but nothing to write home about. I had fun with a lot of the missions and some were alright. After you beat the game there is a lot of stuff to keep you busy, even more so if you like being a completionist there is over 1000 ambient challenges, which involve blowing up tanks, assassinating generals, to completing jumps. Overall The Saboteur is a solid game and offers a lot of fun. At the $20 asking price it is certainly worth the investment.
Rated 10 out of 10 by atomadam3 Beast Game
First of all, I will start out that this game was made in 2009. Since 2009, it has not required a single update. When I put this in my Xbox, I could play the game and still be on Xbox Live. Sean Devlin is a beastly Irishman that will not give up to get revenge for his best friends death caused by a German General named Dierkirk. The game takes place in Paris (in my view, the most beautiful city in the world). You will go through hours and hours and hours and hours of missions. It took me a week to beat this game and I was playing it like 3 hours a day. Controls for this game are great, little sensitive on sprinting but u will get used to it. Graphics are simply incredible for a game that was made in 2009. What I love about this game is it is a mix of GTA and Assassins Creed and you kill Germans all at the same time. Jumping off of the Eiffel Tower is simply the best death one can have as well. This game has racing, gunfights, parkour, demolitions, stealth and freeroam all packed into one game. P.S. get the DLC for this game (The Midnight Show). You will love it. Trust me.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Previewwriter Underrated masterpiece!!!
I highly recommend this to any gamer. a fantastic open-world, takes place in Paris in the 1940's during World War II, great plot, cool Assassins Creed stile parkour , fun fist fighting and shooting action, and that's just some of it. I have no clue how this game went under the radar its fun and you never get bored. great game, especially for the price.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Socrates This game is great
This game is awesome, as a fan of FPS WWII games I was leery but this game definitely delivers. The gameplay is satisfying, combining driving cars, climbing buildings, stealth and demolitions. The interface and graphics are very easy to learn and become second nature. I loved smashing through a barricade surrounded by Nazi scum and running a few of them down as I sped away trying to elude the dirty Krauts that pursued me. Blowing up towers and searchlights is satisfying on its own, doing this gets you rewards in the form of contraband which is the source of money for buying upgrades, ammo, maps and weapons in the game. This game may help me find a new joy in gaming, If developers could make more 3rd person shooters like this. In short if you are looking for a great game at a great price then this is the game for you.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Dcon Lots of evil germans to kill
Pandemic did a great job of sticking to its guns in this game. I hate when games implement something really cool, but ignore it the entire game. The Saboteur does the opposite. You basically kill evil germans the entire game, and it is great fun. You have the skills to climb building like in Assassin's Creed and shoot people like in GTA, perfect combo. There is also a stealth element that is a lot of fun is used correctly. I am not through the game yet, but the story is interesting enough and there are a handful of things to do on the side. The best is probably running around Paris with dynamite, blowing up as many evil german towers as possible, priceless. This game is a bit repetitive, but it is well worth the money, it is just a shame the EA tends to under advertise great games. Mirrors Edge and now the Saboteur.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Squeeze Awesome game
About 3 weeks ago I found a copy at a gamestop and decided to buy it. Once i got home I was amazed of how the game really plays out. It's set in WWII France/German in control, BUT when you take out the towers, spotlights, tanks, all the freeplay events and progress in the story you will unlock color around you. Your guns are sick, the cars you earn are racing types if you can find them. There's this Perk Slots that allows you to do different things in the game with special ablities. It has endless possiblities, and you will spend hours on end completing each event. Don't let the massive white dots over come you, you will soon get all of them and earn awards. Story is really interesting to you, its a decent length game. If your hesitating about buying it, get it for a low price, if you don't like it then take it back.
