Pandemic Studios invites you to experience the ultimate open-world action/adventure as The Saboteur. Fight, climb, and race your way through a uniquely stylised version of Nazi-occupied France, and hunt down your sworn enemies who have taken everything from you. Enter the seedy underground world of a saboteur living in 1940s Paris, where the women are sexy, the missions are epic, and the revenge is satisfying.

Play as Sean Devlin, a street-tough Irish racing mechanic seeking personal redemption in the first open-world action game set in Nazi-occupied Europe. Now, it's time for payback - with the help of the French Resistance, British intelligence, an arsenal of weaponry, and your own street smarts and brawn, you must exact revenge on those who aimed to destroy your life. Motivated by retribution and armed with tactics of sabotage, blow up zeppelins, derail trains, implode bridges, destroy armoured tanks, and level enemy facilities in the name of vengeance.

Live the Resistance in an Open-World Paris: Fight and sabotage your way through a stylised open-world 1940s Paris - from the top of the Eiffel Tower, to the riverbanks of the Seine, the cathedral of Notre Dame or the prestigious Champs-Élysées.

Be the Saboteur: Use a broad range of weapons and explosives to perform your blockbuster sabotage as you single-handedly hunt-down your enemies to dismantle and destroy the Nazi occupation.

    Quiet In, Loud Out: Use gameplay systems like Climbing, Sneaking, and Stealth Kills to infiltrate the Nazi occupation to perform acts of Sabotage. Once you've blown your target to pieces, leverage the intuitive cover system and assortment of weapons to blast your way to freedom.

      Vertical World: This version of Paris was designed to leverage the unique abilities of The Saboteur. Being a Saboteur is all about surprise attacks and Paris' rooftops are the perfect path for your secret operations.

        Will to Fight: The Saboteur introduces a innovative new feature that is both an iconic visual style, and a compelling gameplay element. See and feel Paris change around you as you progress through the game. Go from a dark and oppressed black and white police state, to a bright and inspired world where the citizens fight back...

          Hijack Any Vehicle: From high performance race cars to military vehicles, as the Saboteur, you can drive any vehicle that comes along to escape your pursuers.

           Great game!!

          | | See all bingy69's reviews (9)

          I was hesitant to buy this game because of lack of reviews, but I went ahead and got it anyway and im not disappinted!! It is bascially GTA WW2 style.

          Graphics are great. Gameplay keeps you engaged, you can climb practically any building, including the eiffel tower (and basejump into a pool). Brawling, shooting and sneaking are all well executed.

          The main missions will hold your attention, but there a side missions a plenty. If you couldnt be bothered doing missions, you can go around the place and blow up Nazis cannons, petrol pumps and raid bases, which earn you contraband in which to trade for weapons, ammo, explosives etc.

          Another great thing is if you take out a Nazis sniper tower before attempting a mission, that same tower will not be there during the mission, making your getaway easier. You can be tactical.

          The only thing letting it down is the awful voice acting, but it rele doesnt bother me now.

          I would recommend this game to anyone

           Looks good, plays good.

          and it has everything you want
          * Semi naked french strippers
          * Nazi's for you to kill :D
          * Great looking cutscenes (The cows on the countryside looks very real)
          * Witty humour
          * Something new and interesting (the bringing the colour back)
          *Some great cars
          and more...

           I'd have happily paid full price at launch!

          The prologue is a little slow but it's a necessary evil, as it introduces you to Irish lothario Sean Devlin and explains why he became involved with the French Resistance. It also allows you to become accustomed to the controls.

          The game is atmospheric, at times bleak, and the story cleverly draws you in to the extent that every time the likeable Sean kills a Nazi, especially with a stealth move or a head shot with a sniper rifle (lots of blood!), you get a real sense of satisfaction! (Well, I did...)

          Completing certain scenarios gives you perks, allowing you to buy more weapons, ammo, maps and improvements to the cars in your garage.

          There are so many acts of sabotage to be done it's mental. I've been playing for almost 24 hours, and I've still only scratched the surface.

          There ARE a few bugs, as other reviewers have mentioned, but they do not detract from what is a well-made, addictive game with beautiful graphics.

          A must-buy, particularly at it's current low price!

          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.

           It's killing Nazis, what can be bad about that?

          My wallet was a bit heavy one day and I like games based during wartime, so I bought The Saboteur. Although I'm only two thirds of the way through it, I think that overall it is a fantastic game.

          The world you inhabit is massive. Games like this still amaze me. How can I spend 10 minutes driving across the world without a single loading screen or pause? It's also probably the most vibrant and varied world I have personally seen in a computer game. It may not have the comical quirks of a GTA game, but it makes up for it in sheer beauty. Paris has never looked so good.

          I have very little patience with computer games. If something takes me more than five attempts, I'm probably going to give up. This is another area where, for me at least, The Saboteur is excellent. It provides a challenge whilst never giving me that annoying feeling that it's actually impossible, and there is a room full of game developers laughing hysterically at my frustration. The main story is also not hugely long, but there is plenty of free play stuff to blow up, and for that reason, it's a great game for dipping in and out of as well as one for getting really involved in. I regularly challenge myself to blow things up in the most creative way I can, and that's where this game's greatest strength lies, the flexibility it offers in general play.

          The side missions can be a bit repetitive. Having said that, this is an accusation I would level at a lot of these types of games, especially GTA. All of GTA's missions fall into one of about 4 categories (follow someone/blow something up/collect something etc.) and there is very little room for being inventive within those missions. In The Saboteur you can decide how you want to go about destroying/killing your target for yourself. Having looked at various walkthroughs of missions I've completed, most of the time I have taken a different strategy and that level of flexibility within missions is great, and in my mind it also removes the element of repetition.

          I've read a few reviews saying that the voice acting is rubbish. To be honest, I hadn't noticed and even now I think about it, it seems fine to me. Perhaps I am less discerning about my voice actors than other people.

          Other gripes I have include the climbing mechanics being a bit slow and tedious and the stealth system when you are disguised is a bit odd. These are miniscule though compared to the positives. It is inevitable that this game will be compared with GTA4, and I think it wins by a mile. I got GTA4 and was bored after a few hours. I can't wait to get home most days so I can go about sabotaging some more Nazi installations in whatever way I feel is appropriate. The worst thing about this game is that Pandemic Studios no longer exist and therefore a sequel is unlikely.
