Not a bad game but could've been better.
15 October 2009 | by Roadwarrior85846See all my reviews

SAW: The Game is survival horror video game based off the SAW franchise. As a big fan of the SAW series, the storyline and plot were pretty well written but the rest of the game was just a bit sloppy.

You play as Detective Tapp from the first SAW film. We all thought he died in the movie by Zep shooting him near the end of the film but we were all wrong. Jigsaw kidnaps him and saves his life. Jigsaw told Detective Tapp that after taking the bullet out of his body, he put in a key in him. This key is a way out of where Tapp and other Jigsaw's victims were currently in which is an abandon asylum. As Detective Tapp, your mission is to survive from maniacs that wants to kill you for the key, survive from Jigsaw's traps, rescuing important characters of the story, solve multiple puzzles, and try to crack the case on who is Jigsaw.

The game's story is pretty cool. You kind of get to know more a little of Jigsaw, witness characters from other SAW films and some just made for the game, and you actually make your own choice at the end of what you really want after what you experienced through the twisted world of the game. Those are the good things about the game.

The bad things about the game is mostly the graphics. The graphics of the Xbox360 version is got to be the worst graphics I've ever seen in this console. There's a handful of glitches and the smoothing texture is very delayed if you start from a checkpoint or skipping a cut-scene. The voice acting is a little bit strange. The only voice acting that is really good is Tobin Bell's work (Jigsaw). Everybody else felt like they're amateurs in acting. The controls are a bit strange as well. Later on in the game, you can make explosive traps with household products. You have them equipped but I haven't had a clue on how to plant the trap on the ground until near the end of the game that I can just simply press RT while equipped. It's like you have dementia and you have to figure it out yourself on how to use the controls in the game. If I were the makers of this game, I could have continue working and tweaking things up and plant the release date a month after SAW VI's release date.

Overall, decent game but sloppy. You just have to get use to it. It's a must-have for SAW fans but for regular horror or video game buffs, It's safe to skip this one.
