The Saboteur plays and acts like the previous two Godfather titles from EA down to an exact replica. The idea of being behind enemy lines in occupied france is interesting, but it fall short do to the inability move beyond the same old gameplay.
- Story line is intriguing and original - graphics are above average - Trophies are easy to get a Platinum
- The driving controls are horrible - Character controls are horrible - Aiming system and cover system lack the fluidity of games like uncharted and gears of war
Ultimately if you loved The Godfather games and their gameplay than this will be a good game for you, however if you aren't to into the game from the premise of it you will be quickly disappointed.
ps. True EA money scam in giving a dlc code to allow for extra portions of the game only to those who buy the game and charge $3 to those who don't buy the game first hand.
This game is better than the critics rate it. It is fun to play unlike others that are just plain frustrating like Assassins Creed 2 and Fallout 3. The game has a lot of driving, climbing and blowing stuff up. It is similar to Red Faction mixed with the 1st Uncharted. There is a good selection of weapons and you get credited for your skills with extra perks. Additionally, you get money for blowing stuff up. The game has a seedy side with strippers, brothels and you get to kill some Germans. How can you beat that... The assignments are challenging and not repetitive. Also, you can joist go wild and blow stuff up without being on an assignment.
I hope you give this game a chance and at least rent it.
