Playing as Detective Tapp you must navigate your way through an abandoned asylum releasing various people (who have some form of connection to Tapp) from Jigsaws traps. The game is broken into stages, each stage representing your next target to release, and follows an almost all too linear approach.
Unfortunately as a player you can't help feeling the game isn't quite finished, the graphics are average with the characters bearing no resemblance to their film counterparts. As mentioned previously the gameplay is overly linear, you have no freedom to deviate from the path and so there is little in the way of exploration. There are various mini games as you travel through levels which are repetitive and in later stages plain infuriating!
The major problem with this game is the combat system, it's just plain awful; no accuracy with weapons, unpredictable damage and an unhelpful camera angle make fighting a difficult and frustrating experience.
However for all its flaws Saw is actually a strangely addictive game, the large traps are inventive drawing obvious inspiration from those which have appeared in the film. There is a large variety of weapons and the puzzles are challenging without being near impossible. The plot is very good and the addition of Tobin Bells voice-over as Jigsaw gives the game a suspenseful feel. Finally it's a very easy 1000G and the play time is only 7 - 10 hours max depending on your play style.
If your a Saw fan it's well worth a look, if your not I'd probably recommend renting/borrowing before you decide to purchase especially as it doesn't have a lot of replay value.
As a big fan of the Saw films this was a must buy - and it links in well with the theme of the films.
I wasn't disappointed - although the gameplay and graphic quality is not quite as good as some of the top titles, this does well in creating an atmosphere and feeling of doom and gllom!
Puzzles are not too tricky - and I'm making good progress. Thers are a better variety of puzzles than I expected.
Plenty of jump out of your skin moments ..... and lots of re-incarnations!
For Saw fans - get it, for pure gamers - rent it, for parents of children - keep them away from it (it is unpleasant like the film series - and could cause nightmares!)
A 18 rating is, in my opinion, is the correct rating.
In a sick way - it's good fun - and a good tie-in.
Being a fan of the film series (although less as time has gone on) I was always going to get the game, although I wasn't expecting the same experience as in the films, I was hoping for a good survival horror genre game, with nods. I wasn't completely disappointed.
Plot wise, it's as convoluted as you get, and when comparing it to other titles in the genre (such as some of the Silent Hill titles) this is a let down, as a strong plot line help hold the game together.
Graphically, the game is dark (as you'd expect) but many of the backgrounds lack detail. The characters themselves look dated and poorly constructed. Graphics wise the game does not shine.
Audio wise, the music does do a great job of setting atmosphere. Infact almost every time I found myself feeling edgy it was due to a well placed piece of music, or a noise from the distance. Tobin Bell is also as competent as ever as Jigsaw. Down side, no Danny Glover on the voice cast.
Most importantly when actually playing the thing, the game is a mixed bag. The puzzle elements are well constructed, take some thought at first and there are some well done unique sections to the game (Sight or Blind?). When the combat is introduced, it gets annoying, the system is just badly designed. It wont take anyone long to work out a particular move that will beat anyone up. However in many instances, alternatives to fighting are possible, I suggest you take them just to avoid the combat mechanic!
Achievement wise, it's none too taxing. Many of the points are for completing set goals (levels, the game, killing x people, and the rest are mostly made up of using weapons quite easy.Read more ›
The graphics are pretty decent not as crisp as some games out there, but the detail is good don't get me wrong. Tobin Bell contributing using his voice as jig saw is great creepy yet relaxing? very odd. The puzzles are fairly easy, although as mentioned i'm not that far into the game yet, some are a little on the tricky side. The game takes places in a asylum which is big lots of places to explore, door to unlock (lock picking), doors rigged with shot guns,trip wires to dis-arm,release victims from traps, inmates/victims some of which will fight with you, whilst other will not. For me the one let down with the game is fighting very sluggish and unresponsive you can use weapons (lots to pick up) but i find fighting bare hand is easier and quicker.
The game is quite gruesome you see victims in traps, heads exploding etc... but for me personally its not scary, more suspense.
For a first attempt i'd give the game about 8/10, for saw fans its a defo (you find out about what happened to the characters from the first saw film - i've not found out yet)like wise for people who like to play jumpy games.
