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.

           Fantastic!!

          I have read mixed reviews on this one.... I decided to try it out and 6 hours later I was forced to put myself to bed.... This game is fantastic!!

          If you like the GTA thing and can deal with the exact same format then this is for you... Nothing new I must admit but if it ain't broke then why fix it??

          Massive playing area, stunning graphics, loads of extras..... I loved the humour and use the of black and white for the Nazi areas and the beautiful colour countryside in the friendly zones....

          I REALLY enjoyed this game and from the looks of things there is a LOT more gameplay to be had.....

          Don't be scared to give this a go.... I think you will be surprised..

           Wham, Bam, Thank You (Merci) Mam!!!

          For some reason, the critics were widely divided over this offering from Pandemic. Admittedly, I was hesitant about playing it because of the reviews, however, a massive price decrease since its release meant it found its way onto my xbox......and to my surprise, it turned out to be a couple of weeks worth of damn good, fun, addictive gaming.

          The Saboteur starts well enough, throwing XP at you like its going out of fashion, and giving you a quick flash of what's on offer - however, it soon settles down after the intro to give you a handsome helping of driving, racing, shooting, blowing stuff up, escaping, and, for fun, a good plot with some good characters - oh, and a war time Paris occupied with plenty of Nazi's!

          It's pretty much a mix of Grand Theft Auto and Assassins Creed in my opinion - the climbing part of AC, and the panoramic shots of famous monuments as you reach the top are a definite steal - however AC doesn't let you plant bombs on sniper nests, and it definitely doesn't give you an array of weaponry to fight the hun with! The GTA "do something naughty and run / drive away" part is also a steal but is still good fun, and a must for fans craving for more of that type of gameplay.

          The main plot could be finished in a weeks worth of steady gaming, however, to clear all of the Nazi outposts / tanks and other military parafinalia out of Paris and its outer countryside regions could take you a decent fortnight - with the scenery turning from black and white to colour as you take out a certain number of the enemy, it certainly inspired me to turn on and blow-up......

          So try The Saboteur - its good fun - and a little different - even if that difference is a combo of GTA and AC, those are still two mighty games to pilfer from.....enjoy!

           Good game but one ruining flaw.

          This game is extremely gripping. Story is set at the height of World War 2 in France, you play an Irish Saboteur who fights for the French resistance. The gameplay is very GTA-esque with slight branches of difference.

          However, the game has one fundamental, and for me, a ruining flaw. The save system doesn't work all the time. It's designed to be a "Save at any point" game via the pause menu, but after trying two copies of the game in three Xbox's i've found that the save files, after loading, tend to put you several missions behind your current progress and sometimes followed by having certain items/weapons missing from your arsenal.

          This flaw caused me personally to give up on this game 83% into it.

          Great game, bad flaw.

           13 Pound for this youll be laghing.

          If your loooking for a sandbox games then most would go GTA4, Red Dead, Saints row, Far Cry e.t.c. This little gem probally woundnt even get a mention because it seems to have slipped out unnoticed. Seriouslly 13 for this is an absolute steal of the centuary. Basicy plays as a cross between assassins creed and GTA4. You can climb buildings to snipe plant bombs on crows nests e.t.c. Even has a little bit of the old commandos game on the P.C in the mixer in that you can don a german uniform to sneak round and do missions. The cutscenes are quality and genually funny in some spots the main charater is good typicall irish drunken womanizer type. Very similar to GTA in that you carnt visit certain areas of the city till you get a certain depth in. which actuall fits in well to the story as you have to do missions to get the right papers to fool the germans to letting you past the checkpoints. For the price has to be one of the best sandbox games out. It is set during WW2 so dont expect ferrairs and modern warfare sytle weaponary just good old bangers and Panzershreek (somethink like that) rocket lanchers.
