It’s no secret that nine times out of ten video games based on movie licenses end up sucking, but man, that one percent of folks who get things right really knock it out of the park. Since the whole premise of the Saw franchise is based upon playing grisly games, it’s a safe bet that Saw: The Video Game stands a better than average chance of landing safely within that elusive one percentile.
Combining action, puzzles, mystery and terror, the game will have an original plot that ties into but is, however, not entirely adapted from the films. The gameplay is focused on the unusual traps serial killer Jigsaw likes to rig for his tortured victims. You take control of a character in an asylum who has to decide whether and how to solve the puzzles and save Jigsaw’s victims.
Konami’s Saw: The Video Game is on track to be hitting home on October 6th, 2009 on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Order your copies below.
