Opinions. Buy it or not?

Is it a good game? Is the game simular to the movies?

i enjoyed it, i enjoyed the first saw movie, and some aspects of franchise, but base whether you buy it on price, i got it for 4 so any fun would always feel like value.

The game was actually pretty good. Follows along well with the story of the movies, kind of an interesting look at the series. Plus, it's one of the easiest games to 100% around, so that's a plus in a way.

good game, easy 1000G, and its not too long, probably 10 hours total to get 1000. combat is a little weird and takes time to get accustomed to, but after a few tries its not too bad. it has absolutely no replay value exept to go back for achievements. so its more a rent than buy.

I'd rent it as its pretty short and easy 1000g. The puzzles are the best bit as the fighting is very awkward and annoying.

If you live in the US, find a used copy at GameStop and then head over to and take a look at the walkthrough someone put up there, it's written so that you will get each achievement as soon as the opportunity arises. It'll take about 10-15 hours to complete the game, then take it back to GameStop and tell 'em you didn't like it, and get all your money back.

I thought the game was alright, but I found the combat system is a bit broken. What I mean is that the game gives you weapons, but they aren't anywhere near as effective as just spamming the punches. I think that's why there are so many achievements for using the weapons because you'd avoid them otherwise.

At any rate, it actually picks up right where SAW 1 leaves off (it's even written by the same guys who wrote the first flick), which has it's ups and downs. The main character that you play is Detective Tapp (Danny Glover's character) who was shot in the chest by Zeb at the end of SAW 1.

Well, the game claims that Jigsaw somehow manages to find Tapp before he dies and save him from the gunshot - that's a little thin. However, Jigsaw then traps Tapp in an abandoned insane asylum and tasks him to escape. Meanwhile, the asylum is filled with others that Jigsaw has set with their own task of finding Tapp to get the key to the traps they are set in. The catch is that Jigsaw put the key inside Tapps chest when sewing him up after the bullet extraction. Personally, I thought that was a pretty ingenious way of motivating the enemies to kill you, rather than them just being random lunatics. Having the enemies run at you saying "I need that key!" is actually pretty creepy.

The game is similar to the movies, but the gameplay sux sometimes. When you have to fight with a baseball bat, or another object, it's very slow... But in general it"s a fun game, but kind of creepy :-)

I actually enjoyed the game back when I played it cause it was so straightforward. Kinda nice not to have too much to do exploration wise lol.
