3.0 out of 5 stars Lackluster, but good game, December 18, 2009
By 
This review is from: The Saboteur - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I recently picked up The Saboteur for the Xbox 360 after being hesitant of the title after Pandemic Studio's last big title Mercenaries 2 had so many unfixed bugs in it. I figured the same would happen with The Saboteur and after Pandemic Studios got shut down, that about sealed it for me.

Nonetheless, I picked up The Saboteur anyway out of boredom.

To begin things, new copies of this game come with a free code for a download called 'The Midnight Show,' that can also be downloaded for a price off Xbox Live. This code inserts nudity into the game ~ nudity that you'll see right from the start. So, be warned of that if you have nudity sensitive people in your household. Beyond that, The Saboteur plays similiar to that of GTA4 or the 1st Godfather game. It's an open-world environment where you complete tasks, missions to get upgrades and whatnot to advance in the game. The game takes a que from Assassin's Creed, as well, as you can climb nearly any building, including the Effel Tower (did I spell that right?). Although, the climbing is nowhere near as polished as Assassin's Creed's, nor as polished as a GTA4 in the other departments. As for my concern about bugs ~ well, they're there. The most obvious I've come across is a stripper sitting... on the ceiling! With Pandemic Studios closed down, don't look for this game to get patched.. ever!

One thing unique about this game that I do like is the B&W color scheme in Nazi occupied areas, used to demonstrate the low moral of the area. It gives the game a nice look, but sometimes makes it difficult to see in shaded areas. As the Nazis are weakened, color returns to the area and Paris does look amazing.

Open-world fans will probably dig the game and the mission structure looks like it's going to provide a lengthy experience. So, if you can look pass the bugs and the subpar mechanics of the game, you might enjoy it.
