Shop To have a good deal for the PC version of Saw at the moment: in a price comparison, their price tag of £14.50 beats the next best competitor (DVD.Co.UK who have the game for £17.89) by over £3.
Saw: The Videogame takes the form of a survival horror/action game in which you take on the role of ex-detective David Tapp who finds himself trapped in Jigsaw's more-insane-than-your-average asylum which is loaded with deadly booby traps and tricks. Jigsaw has kindly fitted your chest cavity with a very special key - the key which would allow everyone else in his crazy mousetrap to escape.
The game is actually rather successful in creating a tense atmosphere and captures the essence of the film franchise surprisingly well. There's plenty of gore and wince-inducing moments so, as with the movies, this is not a game for the squeamish. There's some clever and fun puzzles to navigate but unfortunately they can get samey and repetitive. The voice acting is of high quality and there are some satisfyingly gross sound effects to keep you immersed. Unfortunately the combat is pretty poor and frustrating at times and, while you could get a lot of enjoyment out of an initial run through, there's not really anything here to motivate you to come back for more.
Saw is by no means a great game but if you are a fan of the series then it may be worth a look in.
