Step into the dark and tormented world of Saw II and experience the gruesome traps that Jigsaw has created to test your will to survive. With new traps, puzzles, and combat system players will need to think fast and act quick to pass the rigours of the tests Jigsaw has engineered. Set between the Saw and Saw II movies, the game follows Detective Tapp's estranged son Michael, who becomes Jigsaw's next subject while he is investigating his father's recent death...

The biggest problem with Saw II is that it doesn't add anything to the first game in the series, in fact it's a lot worse. By far the biggest problem is that it's just not much fun and the whole experience feels more than a little dated.

The new combat system is a bit ropey, and certainly not very well thought out. Add to this the numerous other problems and you've got a game that's more annoying than entertaining. For example, whack an enemy in the head with a baseball bat that has nails sticking out of it and the weapon vanishes! There's also a problem with the save points. I solved a puzzle, only to be killed a little later on. The save point took me back to before I solved the puzzle (which I did through pure luck the first time) and so I had to fathom it all out again, which was pretty annoying.

In fact this was so annoying that I switched this game off in frustration. If I'd bought it I would have been pretty annoyed at wasting my money. It's a budget title with a hefty price tag - avoid.
