Not Silent Hill...rent, don't buy...

Confusing, slow moving game. I found myself bored and yawning a lot during this one. The puzzles were confusing and had no clues. Difficult to fight back when attacked. Not a fun game. Also, not authentic to the movies. Jigsaw's challenges were pointless.

Has all elements of a good horror game but flawed

Main character has a spike coming off him at all times and the screen "melts" to black at the most inopportune times. You'll be walking and blackness will melt down the screen, from the middle, or the bottom until you can't see anything but your health bar. I don't know if that was planned but it sure doesn't seem like it. Sometimes after turning around it goes away and other times you have to enter another room. It's just chaotic and randomly done. If they would have fixed that I would have rated it higher. Also the map is really small and I have to get up close to my 42" HD just to see anything so I couldn't imagine using it on any screen smaller than that.

Controls are awkward and it's very easy to drop your weapon or forget to press L2 (which is needed to be able to hit at all) when someone is coming after you.

So good concept but not well executed. I didn't have high hopes for this as a video game since the movies didn't seem like they would transfer well to a game but what they came up with would have worked if they would have worked on it a little longer.

Lame and predictable

This game was very lame and predictable. It was good for the first hour or so of play but after that it just starts repeating itself with the same situations, puzzles and other elements. Unless your a diehard Saw fan i wouldn't waste my time if i were you. Sure wish i hadn't.
