  • Excerpt: Considering the sheer amount of games released that take place during World War II, it’s hard to believe that there’s still some new ground to be covered.

  • Conclusion: For Pandemic Studios’ last videogame release, The Saboteur showcases what made the studio famous, while also showcasing a side that shouldn’t be a resent. While this game will provide countless hours of entertainment via blowing things up, racing and the occasional side mission or two, The Saboteur seems to a victim of the trouble that was facing the developer and its parent company Electronic Arts.

  • Excerpt: When I first sampled The Saboteur months ago I had slightly mixed feelings. On one hand, it was a pretty unique approach to World War II games, and on the other, I felt like the game engine wasn't quite as good and good looking as it could be. But I didn't forget that between July and December, there was still a lot of time left for final polish to ensure that the game plays as smooth as possible. And much to my delight, Pandemic actually crafted a rather solid game.

  • Conclusion: On paper, The Saboteur is a winner. The plot is intriguing and the conversation is snappy. And if you tire of following the particulars of "La Resistance" there are always some nicely rendered nude women to ogle. But boil it down to the gameplay and you're left with a good chunk of clumsy third-person shooting with bits of awkward driving. The Saboteur borrows plenty of great elements from other games, but doesn't execute on them as successfully.

  • Excerpt: The Saboteur makes a strong first impression. There are few callings nobler than that of a World War II French Resistance fighter, and the black-and-white Schindler's List conceit is readymade to yank at your heartstrings. Still, as a game, it treads established ground, not to mention there's already been one open-world experience this year that focuses on wholesale demolishment. Is this care package rigged to blow up big, or has it wound up a dud?

Pandemic’s Stylish Swan Song Reinvigorates World War II Games

Game Informer
3 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Liberate open-world Paris from ze Germans by blowing up all their stuff Graphics: I can’t decide which I like better – the stylish black and white treatment of Paris under German occupation or the colorful world it becomes once you liberate a neighborhood Sound: French Resistance? More like International Resistance – this game has enough foreign accents to rival BBC World News.

  • Excerpt: The Saboteur is an interesting title if only because it's developer Pandemic was closed down shortly before it's release. The timing of the closure seemed to indicate that The Saboteur was a poor product but the good news is that it's actually an enjoyable action title, albeit one plagued by a few issues. The now defunct developer didn't leave us with a bang but they also didn't go quietly into the night with a whimper.
  • Pros: Enormous environment; wide variety of missions; beautiful black-and-white visual style

The Saboteur (PS3 Review)

Game Hub
16 December 2009
  • Excerpt: You are Sean Devlin, an Irish racing car driver who becomes The Saboteur on his road to revenge against the Nazis. While the visuals are painfully average and the open-world gameplay offers nothing new, you might just get find yourself sucked right in anyway with fun gun battles and the optional stealth approach. A neatly condensed Paris and its nearby countryside make up the landscape of the game.
