Saw: The Video Game (PS3)
Advantages: Great traps, realistic to film
Disadvantages: Abit slow, graphics
To be honest i cant say i am really suprised that this had become a game as they are 6 films (get ready for seven soon), toys and also a ride based on the Saw franchise. But i was suprised as to how they could possibly even make one. What would it be about? who would you be? would you make the traps? Although all very interesting i didnt buy into it as i have gone pretty tired of the Saw installments of late. I personally thought they should of left it at 3.
However my little (19years old) is for some reason a saw fanatic, has seen all the films and it eagerly waiting for the 7th to come out soon on 3D apparently. He even has the doll laugh on his phone!!! Anywho soon after buying the PS3 he quickly (stupidly in my eyes) went and spent £40 on the game. Why i asked? Because its saw was his reply. Anyway back to the game.

As with all the questions asked above you are pretty much nothing of the above. Instead you are set up in some sort of mental asylum unlocking puzzles in set times to add to some tension. So no you are not jigsaw, so you cant claim to be the brains of the tasks but your also not the victim. To run out to the newspaper whos pays out the most to say ' i survived jigsaw puzzle'. Instead you are Inspector David Tapp. Upon checking up on this it is Danny Glovers character who played in the first Saw film.
Like i said above you based in some sort of mental asylum which is completely in tatters to put it nicely and seems to be empty, or is it???? You are basically the trap rescuer. now and again you will be met by a TV which automatically switched on and the doll appears. It then tells you who is in danger and then goes off. Typical saw style. The voice of jigsaw i must say was very good. You then go off to the rescue, but its not so simple. You will be met by some hidden suprises and also the odd loony in the building who is also trapped in one of jigsaws games and the only way to survive is to get to you.
This being a PS3 game i thought the graphics would be top notch, fully realistic and all sorts. but for some reason it is. Run out of money? Why i dont know. The gameply is also a little slow for my liking and the odd time you need to fight seems to take agesss to finish, Just to hit hit once seems to take about 5 minutes itself! You get a range of weapons to help you on the way including a plastic leg!
The actual puzzle solving i really enjoyed and being a saw game you cant help but slowly tread around as anything can pop up or even blow up. It at times feels like the actual film as the traps are that realistic. we also see the entrance of a few of the popular traps set in the film too.
Overall this game is not as bad as i thought it was. I'm getting quite used to the surroundings and at time the game is very good. I get the odd rush of blood when i'm trying to unlock a trap, screaming at the screen to hurry up or where is it!!!!!!
From what i can see you can get the game for about £25 which i belive to be a much better price for this as the original my brother paid for. Worth a rent if your not to sure. Just depends really how into saw you are.
Summary: Can you outdo Jigsaw in his game?
