I'm a little late with this review, seeing as I actually bought in in december 2009, started playing it in January 2010 and Platinum'd it in June 2010.... June 9th to be exact. I remember the date well because I was gutted Id finished what I believe to be the best game on PS3.. Big statement and Id better start by saying that it is flawed, bugged, and generally not actually finished but all that doesn't matter once you start to 'get' the game. Sean Devlin is a cracking character, very likable with some of the best one liners I've experienced in nearly 33years of being a Gamer, yup, I'm a mature gamer LOL
Graphics are decent, not Uncharted quality but certainly better than Mercs 2, Pandemics previous game which in many ways, shares the same DNA as The Saboteur.
Gameworld is alive and vibrant, the black/White and Nazi Red is with the constant rain is very depressing and the transformation to colour is a joy.
Side Missions, well, there are over 1250 side missions which along with the story, kept me busy for close to 80hrs. It got to the point that real life driving would have me looking at Mobile Phone masts and mentally planting explosives to blow them up :D
Story is decent, amusing in places, reflective and brutal in others.
Bugs, plenty of them, ranging from system crashes to bouncing vehicles, spawning enemies in mid air, unattached telegraph wires, dodgy anti aircraft aiming, ah, the list is endless but it just doesn't matter, the same is brilliant and at little over a tenner, a steal.
One piece of advice, actually two, expect nothing till after the first few hours of play and secondly, save your game often.
