Today on our month long Halloween Spooktacular I thought I would review an old but in my humble opinion good video game. SAW, based on the original movie that shook the cores of the people of it’s time. In a short summary a terminally ill man only known to the public as Jigsaw took people who he deemed as not valuing their lives enough and put them through trials to try to prove to him and themselves that they want to live. But in the universe he technically never killed them, only created puzzles in which you die upon failure to solve it.
I find this logic to be flawed. He set those traps, if they die, he killed them. Period. But that’s not all. What about kidnapping? Or Conspiracy to Commit Murder? Those are charges to put him away too, but no one talks about it in either the game, nor the movies. All in all SAW has two games, but today we focus on the first one. However to my knowledge there are also seven SAW movies. A big disproportion that I believe should be fixed.
The graphics for the first one is what you’s expect for older games. But I believe that is equal parts due to it’s age and on purpose. It makes the game creepier as a whole in my opinion to have the older look. Originally it was launched on the PS3 system. But later moved to the Xbox 360 as well. It was developed by Zombie Studios and published by Konami. I’m not sure if you can, but maybe try the Konami Code in game? It would be fun if not working at least.
I find these two to be very credible companies when it comes to games. But beware of the mature content. Blood. Gore. Jump-scares. Dirty needles, and main character death. This game is not for the faint of heart. It is a horror game for a reason. The second game is arguably more mortifying, but we will get there on a later date. I would recommend this game, 3.5 Creepy Jigsaw Puppets out of 5.
Let me know what to review next! Look forward to a review (hopefully) every day this month. Due to this being a month long venture, suggestions are imperative. Until next time. Boo!
