This game just doesn’t get the love it deserves. The fact that the developers got the Saw creators in to help with the writing and actually make new traps for the game. Tells you the effort that went into this game. In Saw, Jigsaw has healed Detective David Tapp from his gunshot wound and places him in an abandoned insane asylum to teach him a lesson in life appreciation. Obsessed, Tapp traverses the asylum and gathers clues along the way in hopes of apprehending Jigsaw.
Along with people in the asylum playing their own game, trying to kill the detective in hopes that they survive. It’s down to Tapp to escape and uncover the origins of Jigsaw’s plans. While the gameplay can be a little janky. The story is great and in true Saw fashion. The traps are just as gruesome as they are in the movies.
