4.0 out of 5 stars A SOLID 4 out of 5 stars..., February 23, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Saboteur - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
So I've just completed The Saboteur, having logged in probably 85 hours and obtained all achievements, perks, freeplay targets, and collectibles. I gotta say that I had a blast playing this game! As some reviewers have mentioned the gameplay is very similar to Grand Theft Auto (open world sandbox) and the setting is Nazi-occupied France. Even if you've never played GTA, there is just something about killing tons of Nazis, blowing up their establishments, collecting this and that, and improving your character's abilities/strengths that make this game extremely addicting. The missions are set up such that you can achieve them using stealth or guns ablazin' and that's what I like about this game: having a choice of what to explore and what to accomplish. The inclusion of several racing missions (given the main character) is a nice touch and mixes up the gameplay appropriately. I wish there were several more since they were quite fun and challenging. The plot and the characters (including voiceovers) are above average. There are a lot of funny one-liners (there is strong language that includes the f-bomb and sexual innuendo); the cutscenes and conversations add to the entertainment value. I played the game on a "normal" difficulty setting, and my only complaint is that the enemy A.I. was for the most part pretty dumb. That being said, there were a few mission sequences that required several attempts to get through. Another negative is that there are many a load screen. However, if you load the game onto your hard drive (it requires about 5GB of space), loading times will be significantly reduced (and your console will run more quietly!). Finally, the graphics are not stellar, though they are acceptable for the current console.

Overall, The Saboteur is a fun, addicting, and entertaining game. Could it have been more polished? Of course. As it is, definitely worth playing! I rate this game only 4 stars because in my opinion this game, while very fun, falls short of 5-star games such as Mass Effect 1 and 2 and the Metal Gear Solid series, to name a few.
