"The Saboteur may lack the polish of the contemporaries it boldly mimics, but protagonist Sean Devlin's quest for revenge and an alluring 1940s Paris make this a World War II memory worth making." - Game Informer.com
"The GTA-clone has his strong points in lots of action and the thrilling setting of occupied Paris during WW2. Amazingly, a GTA-clone can be a great game, too, and if you like a hero fighting Nazis, then this is your game." - GameStar.de

Combining GTA and Assassin's creed into a WW2 gameAvesomeofthat13 | Aug. 7, 2013 | See all Avesomeofthat13's reviews »
This game is essentially Assassin's creed placed in World War 2, but instead of Ezio (an Italian assassin with an arsenal of renaissance weaponry), you are Sean (an Irish resistance member of WW2, carrying an arsenal of wartime weaponry). Just like GTA you can drive cars, kill pedestrians and cause havoc in the streets, and just like Assassin's Creed, you can climb buildings and leap incredible distances. It is a great combo of the two games and has a really gripping story - it's an incredible game!

This is a truly fun game. Part Assassins Creed, part Grand Theft Auto...you'll be climbing rooftops, hijacking and collecting cars, shooting and blowing Nazis, and watching burlesque dancers in this open world 3rd person action game set in WWII Paris. The graphics are pretty good, but distant textures get muddy. Still the world looks nice and Paris is pretty big. The game mechanics are very easy to control; driving, shooting, and upgrades are all done well. The game seems to favor ease though so if you want a challenge crank it over normal because I find normal too easy for my taste. Mission vary which include racing, assassinating, and bombing. Outside of the main and side missions there are plenty of things to do to earn contraband, the games currency, to buy gear and level up abilities. My favorite part of this game tho, is that it's mostly in black and white until you "free" a neighborhood which then get colorized showing it's free state. A unique and effect gimmick that adds a great look to the game. This is an excellent game all around.
Good idea, ridden with problems.jaminross | June 9, 2013 | See all jaminross's reviews »
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.
The Saboteur reviewcarlyle | Nov. 26, 2012 | See all carlyle's reviews »
Pandemic was meant to deviate a bit 'from the usual prototype of the soldier that kills 50% of all the soldiers of the opposing faction, but has created a pilot of racing cars Irish, Sean Devlin, who took part in the resistance movement in occupied France by the Nazi regime. We will go here and there in the city trying to sabotage different aspects of the system, in order to make them less effective than the control. Just the way in which is depicted, to give The Saboteur its most important characteristic. The game begins almost entirely in black and white except for the red Nazi flags and yellow lights on the roads. Continuing the adventure, give back color to the world, completing missions we face. The way it works is quite intuitive: the color will be more intense at certain points, the more the local resistance will be strong against the Nazis. This games requires a mixture of caution, violent firefights and agility in climbing, in order to complete missions. Also you have the possibility 'of climbing on different buildings to get a better view of the field that will be holding our mission
Mafia 2 and Assassin Creed's babyjeyko | Sept. 24, 2012 | See all jeyko's reviews »
Did you enjoy Mafia 2 and the Assassin's Creed series; If you did you will love the Sabateur. Firstly I should start off by saying that this is not that good a port, so it probably won't run all that well on old PCs and there aren't a whole lot of graphics settings. But when you get over that, the game is a masterpiece. Mixing the fun exploration element of AC and the awesome story of Mafia 2, it's just magnificent. The music is really fitting and the game just has a charm to it. So expect to be hooked to the game until you finish it and even after that if you are a collector type of person.
