The Saw series is now one of the staples of modern horror and, whether you like it or not, there’s a fair few fans that come with the territory. Possibly the most unlikely movie/videogame crossover, the original Saw: The Videogame might have been poorly received but still Saw fans came, saw, and bought the game in droves, making this sequel inevitable. In fact, Flesh & Blood comes a mere 12 months after the original and ties neatly into Halloween and the cinematic launch of Saw 3D, resulting in the game suffering due to its shortened development time (much like the films). Although, to set our review in motion, we have to understand the appeal of the Saw film franchise because, yes, whilst Saw suffers from yearly releases, there’s something about it that keeps people coming back for more time and time again.
