As stated, the Saboteur takes place during World War II in Nazi-occupied Paris, France. You play the role of the protagonist, Sean Devlin. Devlin is a bit of a foul-mouthed brute, who made his way into France with the hopes of becoming a successful race car driver away from his native homeland of Ireland. He eventually becomes part of the war to counter his Nazi racing nemesis Kurt Dierker, who not only plays dirty on the race course but off it as well, and proceeds to kill Devlinís close friend, prompting Devlin to take revenge into his own hands to eliminate Dierker from France as well as his invading Nazi cohorts.
Thus, the main objective of the game is to play as Sean Devlin and tirade around France destroying everything Nazi. Devlin himself is an interesting and at times comedic character, and the same can be said for the rest of the cast in the Saboteur. Although the game and its characters are far from being historically precise, they are interesting enough to keep you engaged in the storyline and they offer some laughs at the same time.
From Devlin, to the resistance fighters to even some scantily clad exotic dancers, you get a widely varied group of characters to be entertained by. The best part is that fighting as Devlin you are not alone, as you also get some added help from French Resistance fighters as well as British Intelligence officials to help bring down the Nazis.
The overall setup of the game is pretty straightforward, as you basically run around the landscape and meet new contacts that give you objectives to complete. As you complete each objective, you progress through the game, all the while eliminating the Nazis from Paris slowly until you finally get your wanted revenge in the end. Most of the missions pertain to destroying Nazi strongholds and assets as well as their troops.
Being a saboteur, Devlin can take the more discreet approach to completing his objectives, such as sneaking around town to kill Nazis and climbing up buildings in the dark of the night. He can also do it the Bruce Willis in "Die Hard" way, going gung-ho right into the heat of the battle and taking on enemies head on.
Of course, as you get further into the game the AI gets tougher, so that gung-ho attitude will only work so long, and you will eventually find yourself needing to be more tactful in your pursuits. For example, you can overtake a Nazi soldier and steal his uniform, allowing you to infiltrate compounds and strongholds easier than if you were in your normal attire. Little touches like this add extra fun to the game and keep it from being dull; it also makes you think outside of the box more.
