That's all this game is. It's boring and repetitive. It's padded out annoying puzzles that are re-used over and over until you are only working on muscle memory. One of the puzzles is just a Memory Game with penalties.
It tries to give you plot twists but only ends up doing the very obvious. :SPOILERS: For example, at one point you have to save Mellisa Sing from a trap. She is the wife of Detective Sing, the partner of Tapp (The main character). Detective Sing died and the blame is laid on Tapp (even though Jigsaw placed the traps, but whatever.) Mellisa blames you for the death of her husband and constantly screams it when you save her. Howeer, she agrees to accompany you to live. Later on, however, SHE BETRAYS YOU! DUN DUN DUUUUUH!:SPOILERS END:
The ending sequence is very anti-climatic also, just because it's padded out with freaking Pipe Dream for most of it!
I've only saw the first movie and didn't care for it much, so I can't vouch for, "if you like the movies." However, on a game stand point, it fails at being a horror game (being that there is health given to you for every 20 feet, and there seem to be a large arsenal of revolvers just lying about during the second half.) It also fails at a puzzle game because the puzzles are so easy and uninspired it made me want to wait out the clocks so that there was just a semblance of challenge in here.
