What Gamespot Users have to say about Saw

    Saw is not a very good video game, but it is a nice attempt at recreating the movies' concept in a video game format.

    The Saw movies are with us since 2004, and in just 5 years have managed to establish a pretty large fan base; so as with most successful movie franchises, the transition from the big screen to your fa...

    a brutal and sadistic kind of game which really creeped me out! the suspense really drives the hell outta me! gruesome!

    this is a 3rd person horror game, wherein you start the game as a man trapped in a room with a metal contrapment on your head. then there is a tv in front of you with a masked man telling you to remov...

    From a SAW movie fan, but still remained open minded.

    The movies are good, not all the same but good, Iliked the first 3 best. A friend of mine told me about the SAW game and the rest is history really. Konami has yet to dissapoint me. They have the scar...

    NOT a huge Saw fan, but this was fun anyway

    Rated on December 04, 2009 by LoatheMe

    Personally, I'm one of those people that liked the first Saw movie, then think they went downhill after that. I never bothered to watch past the 3rd one. I probably would have skipped this if not for ...

    It's better than most movie games

    Rated on January 13, 2010 by FrostDM

    I will not badmouth this game. Its quite nice experience and it keeps you on you toes throughout the whole game. Puzzles are not very hard but combined with the time limit they are just the righ...

    Rent or buy?<br /> Well it's a game which belongs in the category "Good-Bad"

    Rated on May 14, 2010 by Leodegar

    It really has a great atmosphere (with blood,manuscripts and a lot of TVs) but unfortunately the game doesn't represent the charm and the thrill of the movies. The game starts with a wtf moment and yo...

    Saw is a flawed but nonetheless fascinating experiment. With some time and polish, this could be a fantastic game.

    I've had a reluctant relationship with the "Saw" series, each movie got worse and worse (With the exception of the surprisingly half decent Saw VI) and the plot more and more convoluted yet said plot ...

    This game has the ingenuity of the series, making it essential in part of the SAW story.

    if you enjoyed the movies you'll just be gettng a large dose of what you already enjoyed, many clever traps that can only be put in a game scenario, there's always the urgency of finishing on time the...

    Saw had a lot of potential, but blew it with some pretty terrible shortcuts, and bad production values.

    The Good: Varied puzzles, captures the Saw atmosphere, good voice acting, simple combat The Bad: Looks dated, dumb AI, combat is too simple, doesn't capture the shock value of the movies, puzzles a...

    If I was ever excited about this game I would say it was a major disappointment.

    Rated on October 31, 2011 by soulsaturn024

    The game starts off well. The voice acting is good the dark rooms give it just the right feel for a modern horror game. The first puzzle you encounter has the right difficulty to tell you what your in...
