If you can't keep the player engaged, then all the graphics, art, guns, cars, explosions in the world won't make you keep playing it.

Saboteur is a open-world, WW2 setting game where you, an Irish saboteur, can choose how to liberate Paris. Usually this means kicking the snot out of Nazis. Its fun to string together bombs, and take down zeppelins with rocket launchers, but after the novelty wears off, you're left with just another sandbox game that gets old quickly.

The gimmick here is that, sections of Paris are black and white until you "liberate" (kill the Nazis in) that area. You can sneak into bases or just load up a Tommy gun and go to town. You will choose the later most of the time because the stealth mechanic is broken.

I got about 6-8 good hours of fun out this game, but had no desire to finish this middle-of-the-pack open-worlder.

- Bottom line: Fun for a while, but you'll be sending this one back in a couple days.

I have only played The Saboteur for a few hours now and I feel that this game is a solid Rent. I say this because it looks like after completing the game there won't be much replay value. However this game is great so far, it reminds me of GTA IV with a twist and great humor. The controls are great, graphics are great, story is good, and black & white look is awesome.

Conclusion: worth the rent! lol

A lot of people compare it to Red Faction, but thats only because there arent many "destruction based/open world" games.

Pros: Very original, Easy learning curve, Great voice acting, Tons of side missions, Loads of upgrades and perks, HUGE open world to explore and you can climb anything, One liners you will repeat for days, Exploding cows, Plenty o' guns, The option of stealth and disguises is great, Killin nazis and just plain mayhem.

Cons: The driving is a bit odd and glitchy, Not the best graphics ever.

All in all, a good game worth beating. A few things couldve been done better but its no biggie.

8.5/10

4 for the base story and gameplay
2 for being open world
the irish voice actor deserves a point thats 7 so far.
1 point for the ability of stealth and .5 for the attempted driving.
