    This is a hard, dumb game with all knoweledge out the window. The only so called "fun" trap is the key in the eye, which we have seen 18,000 times... such a shame.

    The first Saw game captured the feel of the movies perfectly, had great puzzles, and added a good cannon story between the first and second movies, and this game is a great sequel, it takes place almost immediately after the events of the first Saw game, and adds it's own fun unique and challenging puzzles, the story is also great, and honestly if your a fan of the series or just liked the first game you will like this, while it's mostly the same game the new additions they added like trying to avoid being killed by psychopaths, outrunning a slicer, and running in between cover to avoid being shot are great new additions, and has replay value dot to the fact that now you have to play through it twice to see the different endings, and the many collectibles scattered throughout, however it's not as good as the first do to some flaws, for one thing it's a lot more repetitive, the graphics are worse, voice acting ranges from mediocre to bad, and the new combat system is worse than the first, but if your a hardcore Saw fan like myself you'll be able to overlook these flaws and see what a great game this can be.

    Great improvement over the dull original. Same atmosphere, slightly better graphics, much improved gameplay. The first one was a drag after the first hour and extremely repetitive. This sequel does it right and gets more variety on the levels and the puzzles. Some GREAT puzzles are here. Not just "signal flow" puzzles, but logical "adventure style" puzzles. Mostly trying to figure out a 3-digit number but fun nonetheless. ps. The combat was already bad in the original, so the qte in this one doesn't make it so much worse. Expand

    Straight away the title of this game is a problem. It's called Saw 2, but it's actually based inbetween Saw
    and Saw 2. The opening sequence to the game is cutting open your eye. This attempts to make you disgusted, but, the game has the worst blood physics in any game i've seen by far. Let's move onto the puzzles, as that is what games like this are all about. The first puzzle, here we
    go. So the clues are, theres a locked door, a mirror, a mark on your chest and writing in blood on the wall saying "take a look at yourself" anyone with a brain could easily figure out the solution to this puzzle within two minutes. All you have to do is put the mark on your chest into the lock on the door. You may think it's ok that the first puzzle is easy, but I had the game on "insane" difficulty. They could have at least made it so you had to actually think. What's the next puzzle then? Your clues are a number written on a whiteboard and a locked door. ARE YOU KIDDING? THE SECOND PUZZLE IS EVEN EASIER THAN THE FIRST! JUST PUT THE NUMBER IN THE DOOR'S PADLOCK! Ok, they must just be warming up, the next puzzle (on insane difficulty) must be at least medium. It's a quicktime event. Yeah, the mastermind behind the death traps seen in the saw films decided to kill this guy with soggy floorboards! The problem with this is once you die it's game over and you have to start all over again. And don't expect a good ending either. Micheal is attacked by spiky walls and has to cross a plank of wood. Tightrope tension in Wii Fit is better than this **** Jigsaw then gives Micheal a speech about life, but Michael couldn't give any less **** as he isn't paying attention as throughout the whole speech as he has the face of a kid during school throughout this scene. It then gives a choice. But you can't even make the choice, as just before you do, the credits roll. There's an alternate ending where the guy from the start kills Michael. Jigsaw then gives Michael a free circumsision. Expand

    Again Jigsaw fails to impress us much. This is mostly due to lack of innovation, lack of tension and some annoying elements. Just as the first part this is a nice title for the sales bin.

    SAW 2 is basically a step backwards from the first game.

    High production values and charming characters makes Final Fantasy XIII a good game. But all to linear structure and boring story keeps it from being brilliant.
