Summary

Welcome to Nazi-occupied Paris, a unique open world where you are The Saboteur. Play as Sean Devlin, a street-tough Irish racing mechanic seeking personal redemption on a Nazi officer that has taken everything away from him. Now it’s time for payback - with the help of the French Resistance. With British intelligence, an arsenal of weaponry, and your own street smarts and brawn, you must exact revenge on those who tried to destroy your life. Armed with superior skills and with little left to live for, you'll sabotage, blow up zeppelins, derail trains, implode bridges, destroy armored tanks, and level enemy facilities in the name of vengeance.

Well, that track has been included here - along with several other excellent jazz numbers that play whenever you enter a vehicle. The thing is, that song was recorded in 1965 - over 20 years after World War II ended. It's inclusion makes no sense at all, and yet the tune itself is a perfect match for the tone of the game. It's this winning contradiction, more than a pair of polygon breasts, that truly sums up The Saboteur. Pandemic Studios may be no more, but at least we can say that the boys went out on a high note.

The voicework is spotty as well. You won't be convinced by many of the performances, not even Devlin's. Black-and-white pretentions and all, The Saboteur traffics in boring, overused caricatures. The music is nice, though, comprised of remixed period music when you're in a car and sweeping orchestral The voicework is spotty as well.

I can’t decide which I like better – the stylish black and white treatment of Paris under German occupation or the colorful world it becomes once you liberate a neighborhood. French Resistance? More like International Resistance – this game has enough foreign accents to rival BBC World News. A great 1940s jazz soundtrack accompanies your street carnage. While the driving, shooting, and climbing get the job done, they lack the polish of superior experiences. The Saboteur may lack the polish of the contemporaries it boldly mimics, but protagonist Sean Devlin’s quest for revenge and an alluring 1940s Paris make this a World War II memory worth making.
