  1. The nicest touch is that your free-roaming sabotage has a direct effect on the quests that advance the main story.
  2. The Saboteur is a fun, if not fairly short game with a solid storyline in tandem with its WWII theme.
  3. Includes features from the best games such as Uncharted 2 or GTA. But some small bugs make it a little bit less attractive than those big titles.

    While the hand-to-hand battle mechanics are a bit spongy - the targeting system especially so - the gun fights are a joy to control.

Everything in this game down to the a.i. just says that Pandemic studio needed more time to complete this game. For the most part the story is o.k. for a video game. A simple revenge tale. What makes the game so interesting is the art direction the choose to take. The map starts black and white much like how Frank Miller's Sin CIty. As you give the resistance more hope by doing missions the game world turns into color. That's all that's really good with the game. The missions are repetitive. The final stages are the cliche take out alot of enemies (even know you could have gone through the game to this point with just sneaking) the game makes you take out alot of enemies towards the end. Thats also another complaint the stealth is so bad. They want you to pick up a uniform and be disguised but the only problem is that it doesn't work. You cant be in the radius of other soldiers while your in the disguise then whats the point of having the option. A truly worthless part of the game. A mediocre effort all in all. I really wish they would have had more time to play test it. Full Review »

Disappointing more than anything. It feels unfinished, and there are so many glitches and little annoyances - like the underdeveloped stealth mode and the tedium of climbing buildings. I played it through, more out of sheer bloody-mindedness than anything else. Full Review »
