Good idea, ridden with problems.

jaminross | June 9, 2013 | Review of The Saboteur (EU)

The saboteur is awesome. It is stylized and individual and charming. As others have said it does play a bit like assassins creed set in World War 2, with much worse animation, the combat is harder though and this ads to the game. Unlike assassins creed where you can face off against ten different opponents who will politely wait for you to be done fighting with each of them before striking, The Saboteur will kill you very quickly if you don't consider your options. The game really comes in to its own in this sense during the open world parts, when you're just running around Paris killing Nazis and making dashing escapes before they can hunt you down. The biggest problem I had with this game was the numerous bugs I encountered, I lost saves and fell through the world several times and this seriously hindered my enjoyment of the game. Good idea though and there are fixes out there for most of the problems, if you don't mind a few bumps along the way you will probably have a fun time.
