Saw is a surprisingly fun survival/horror/puzzle game. If you're a fan of the genre or of the movie franchise, this game is definitely for you. There isn't much to know ahead of time going into the game other than it is fun and it is quite easy. Relax and enjoy the game as you can't really miss anything permanently. Use the chapter select feature after you beat the game to finish off anything you miss on the first shot.
Step 1: Play the game.
If you're just up for some gamerscore with little challenge, begin a game on Normal. There is no incentive to playing the game on Insane difficulty. As you play, keep an eye out for new weapons and attempt to get a kill with each weapon you come across instead of using the same one over and over. If you don't have an unused weapon and come across an enemy, attempt to knock him over and curb stomp him. You can get all the kill achievements through chapter replays though, so don't worry too much about it. Also make sure you locate the three bomb schematics so you can make and use those for at least one kill each.
There are separate achievements for each of the two endings, but you don't have to play through the entire game twice to get them. When you get to the end of the game, be sure to go through the door on the left first. Watch that ending, then at the main menu, reload your last save file. Now choose the right door and finish the other ending.
Step 2: Mop up.
Now, once you complete the main story you can reload any case in the game. If you've missed any specific kill achievements, check each achievement below to find the exact locations. Make sure you save your nails if the weapon you're looking for requires it. For anything you need multiples of still (lockpicking, curb stomps, etc) you can always do it once and then reload your last save and repeat the action on the same thing over and over.
