Conclusion: Do practically anything for the first time and an achievement unlocks. I feel that in the narrative exposition segment of the game- playing up the creepyness is essential. It's hard to build that tension with the constant ploinking sound of an achievement unlocking. But this is a minor gripe.

The movie series, cut short due to dwindling commercial success, is still an understandable investment by Konami, and the original Saw game certainly demonstrated moments of potential.
