Overall, The Saboteur really feels like a mixed bag of goodies. It borrows ideas from other popular games but doesn’t implement them well. The driving conrtols in the game feels as stiff as some of the character animation. And climbing buildings...

If the Saboteur is to be believed, then during World War II the Nazis were so evil and so oppressive, that they literally drained the colour out of the surrounding environment using their evil Nazi magic. Furthermore, it was a pot-mouthed Irishman...

The Saboteur is a third person sandbox action game set during World War II, and is the last project by the recently closed Pandemic Studios. This fact in itself is disappointing, since this is quite probably the best game from the developer in recent...

The Saboteur presents a roller-coaster of a story, wrapped in a moodily rendered black and white Paris, which blossoms artfully into colour as you travel the city completing a diverse range of enjoyable missions. Sure, the mechanics are flawed at...

Take World War II - a quite overused setting for a computer game, in my opinion - and blend it with a sandbox setting where you have some goals to achieve but are free to do them any way you like. What you get is The Saboteur, a WWII themed sandbox...

Prancing along the rooftops of Nazi-occupied Paris, I spotted a German general flanked by two bodyguards loitering on the street below. Given that killing Nazi generals grants me extra contraband, I set my Scoped Steiner in line with the general’s...

If there's any period of time in gaming that has probably been outlawed in all the major development studios throughout the known universe by now, it's got to be World War II. The mere mention of this overused, thrashed, and thoroughly...

For all its quirks, The Saboteur is a pretty fun open-world game. You might think that blowing up the same gun/tower/base over and over again would get a little dull, but somehow, even with the broken stealth mechanic (not broken… just needs...

World War II games are a penny a dozen, having earned a reputation as one of the most overused settings in videogame history. Likewise, the open world genre has been exploited so often and so shamelessly that the whole idea of "sandbox" gameplay...

Tag den åbne verden fra GTA-serien, bevægelsesfriheden fra Assassin's Creed spillene og bland det med lidt Hitman og resultatet bliver The Saboteur.Da det først kom mig for øre, at Pandemic Studios var i gang med at udvikle endnu...
