PPG wrote in their review "The most anticipated horror movie of the past couple of years finally makes its debut as a video game. If you haven't guessed by now, I am talking about Saw - one of the most violent horror movies in recent memory, and you wouldn't think a game carrying its namesake would live up to the reputation.
It's true; I had my doubts about Saw, but it has to be one of the best movie-to-game translations to come along in a long time, and it works, and it works really well. I will start out by saying this: you don't have to be a fan of the movies to understand what's going on around you. You start the game with one of those trademark traps on your head, known throughout the Saw movies as the inverted bear trap."
