GOG release: “The Saboteur”

Pandemic Studios’ The Saboteur, another EA-published game and this time a full-fledged FPS, comes to GOG’s DRM-free service.

World War II shooters are as common these days as zombie multiplayer modes, but if they’re delivered with a bit of humor and an interesting art style, then a title like this one should stick out from the crowd. Having an unlikely hero in the form of race car mechanic Sean Devlin work against the Nazis in Paris is already quite a welcome narrative device, even if the reason for this is less than subtle, i.e. his brother is killed by a sadistic German officer.

Of course there’s also a bit of stealth due to the subject matter, but shooting lots of Nazis in some beautiful environments is the order of the day. It’s quite a weird game that handles serious topics like oppression and historical atrocities in a more pulp adventure fiction way. Just looking at the different trailers (my favorite being the one with the Flogging Molly song), it at least looks like a lot of guilty pleasure fun with explosions, car chases and false German accents.

Speaking of German accuracy, even if the trailers don’t show swastikas, the GOG version seems to have them, surprisingly. For how long it’s available for German users, considering that everything else with the symbols is region-locked, is unclear, so it might be a good idea to grab the DRM-free version with a 50% discount that will last until September 29, 12:59 PM UTC while you can.
