Review: SAW II: Flesh and Blood (Microsoft Xbox 360)
8 March 2011
Summary: : SAW II: Flesh and Blood ends up scoring the same as its predecessor, less because of a lack of forward movement and more because of a one-step-forward-two-steps-back development mentality that doesn’t actually allow the game to get any better as a result.
Excerpt: Picture the scene: It is 1944, you are in the midst of the campaign to storm through Italy all the way to Berlin when you find yourself hemmed in on all sides. You are heavily outnumbered by superior forces, they have resupplying bases all around and you have little or no re-inforcements.
Conclusion: Score Summary: Graphics: 5/10 Sound: 6/10 Gameplay: 2/10 Story: 5/10 Replay Value: (Don't make me laugh) 1/10 Achievements: 9/10 (If you are willing to play it again) Overall: 2/10 Is it your Cup of Tea? Are you kidding? Hell no! Not even the most hardcore fan should play this.
Summary: I probably sound really harsh when it comes to Saw 2: Flesh and Blood. That’s because the game has a lot of potential. Saw 2 could have been a stand out survival horror game in a genre that has basically died out in favor of action adventure with zombies. Saw 2 could have been really scary.
Excerpt: Even as a casual fan of the film series, I still couldn’t muster excitement for Saw ’s first foray into gaming back in 2009. If anything, though, the first game managed to exceed many (admittedly low) expectations.
Conclusion: Saw II outstays its welcome after a couple of hours and keeps on forcing the hackneyed plot on you when you want it all to end. It’s still probably a worthwhile play for fans of the series but for everyone else, it’s difficult to stay with for long, with to its long stretches of linear repetition...
Excerpt: Since Resident Evil 4 arrived, horror games have almost lost their more cerebral puzzling in favour of fast paced combat, but Saw II: Flesh and Blood , like its predecessor, is focussed on puzzles ahead of action, of which is a welcome throwback.
