    You want to play a game? If you can stand having Jigsaw in your living room, this is your best shot. Fans will be pleased with Saw II, even though it is really dark and the handling isn't perfect.

    The Jigsaw traps are definitely the highlight of the game even if they do get a tad bit repetitious.

    Based on the successful film saga, what starts being an entertaining adventure in the first steps of the game even with it's lacks, soon it becomes something extremely repetitive, due to recycling the same situations and gameplay mechanics over and over again.

    It could have been a decent game, despite de limitations of the property, but it ultimately results in something worse than the first game, which doesn't improve in what the original lacked.

    Outside of those few positives, it's a lesson on how not to use a movie license within the video game industry.

    From terrible Quick Time Events to a surprisingly absent sense of horror. Poorly designed levels and monotonous traps do nothing to help its cause and save this game from the slaughterhouse. What little joy that can be found during your play-through is quickly squashed by the many flaws to be found.

    I'm a huge fan of the Saw series from begining to last. I was actually excited to play the game. Until, this is a complete waste of $60 that II'm a huge fan of the Saw series from begining to last. I was actually excited to play the game. Until, this is a complete waste of $60 that I completly regret buying. It's a third-person surviver horror puzzle game, It kinda looks similar to Dead Space and Resident Evil 4. It's not fun or scary at all! The graphics are so dark and ugly, I wondered if I picked the right game. The controls were okay, but it wasn't perfect when it came to combat. IDK how they screw this up and call it Saw and put Jigsaw in it when its no where close to be anything like the films. If you are a Saw fan like myself, I would flush this game in the toilet, and watch Saw II on Blu-ray in the dark. Its way better to do than playing that game. Expand
