Palais Royale; I was stuck on this for ages because the AA guns were no use against two of the zeppelins but they were OK to take out two patrolling ones about a mile away. I decided I was going to need some kind of rocket launcher so before I was about to leave to find one I threw a grenade (out of frustration) at one of them and it bounced on the top twice then exploded taking the fucker out too.
Facepalm moment then I did the same with the last one and because I'd been on it for so long it was so nice to see the colour return.

I'm so happy I feel like killing a civilian.

hmm, side mission perhaps? i need to play some more of these... i think i've done maybe two of them... i'm about to go start a long gaming session, if my friends don't call to hang out... i'm giving them a half hour laugh.gif...

Anyone know why some nazi bodies glow on and off? I stand over them but it doesn't offer me anything.

I got hold of a Panther MK2 tank but for some reason nothing happened when I got to the garage so it's not on the vehicle list. Anyway I decided to try another garage and on the way I took out 8 nazi vehicles which were counting toward my perk challenge; 'Destroy 20 Nazi vehicled with 1 vehicle' then my PS3 froze and had to be turned off by the standby button on the PS3 itself.
I also had an AR33 which the garage wouldn't take but it's taken a Bauer and a Bauer Fuel Truck.

Came across what I think was a Wulf (the experimental tank) it had a double turrett but I couldn't get inside so I planted some dynamite on it and there was an explosion but no damage, a second or two later a Nazi climbed out and stood on top with the hatch left open which I thought might be my chance but then it blew up.

Some weird shit happens in this game.

it was a wulf, and that's how it explodes... an initial fire, then BOOM!! i know because, i have the remote detonators now biggrin.gif... and the next perk requires that i destroy a few of those... i've blown up 2 so far...

yes, i have RDX... i got the opportunity of a lifetime when i did a side-quest for the priest... i blew up 4 of them on that mission, then shot off a few rounds to alert another vehicle after i passed the mission... planted another and viola... i would imagine hanging out in the woods and ambushing the incoming enemy vehicles would work too... i was going to do that until this opportunity presented itself... it can't be too hard to blow up 5 vehicles in 5 minutes...

these bastards are fun!! you no longer get spotted at the scene of the crime because, you can just plant one (or two) and sit back from a distance and watch the fireworks...

bought the rocket launcher as well... took down my first airborne zeppelin and various other nazi crap biggrin.gif... i also purchased the scoped-something... not the carbine but, the other one, the more expensive one... got the "kill 5 with the sniper rifle" perk, and have 11/15 for headshot kills...

i only really did a few side quests and a ton of ambient freeplays... did that one where you had to snipe that guy who had a couple of doubles walking around, and completed a couple for the priest as well... i'm still at 49% but, my freeplay completion jumped to 17%... also unlocked the "chain smoker" trophy, lol laugh.gif...

Missions - 35%
Freeplay - 9%
Zeppelins Destroyed - 33

I got on a couple off AA Guns after taking out the guards one by one. Had to run out of the suspicion zone each time but in the end I was free to take out zeppelins at will with no one showing up to challenge me. Earned 3,000 contraband and decided that was enough but then I had to escape a Level 4 Alarm which was hard as fuck.
My poor little sports car had no doors left on it and a flat tyre which I didn't even know you could get lol.
I found the best way to get away from the Level 4 Alarm was to go cross-country, less enemy vehicles are likely to spawn if you stay away from the roads.

I decided to unlock a Gold Perk but was stuck between a choice of 3 which interested me but finally settled for the Terror Scoped Rifle (semi auto beast) I presume that's the one you got?

How do you kiss girls? (Now there's something you don't ask everyday)

I also did a mission for the Priest where I had to wait for his signal ("Blow his fucking head off!").

I'm loving this more and more every hour mainly due to the fact you can take as long as you like which gives it a real time feel. AMAZING!!!! I can't believe we're the only ones here playing this, they're all missing out.


TAKE THAT NAZI!

Dead Nazis? The live ones glow depending on your suspicion level.

Agreed. Last night, I did the side mission for the Old Lady (Margot?) which involved taking out the General in the bulletproof car. After blowing him and his Nazi pals to hell, I went to the viewpoint on the opposite side of the building and there was a Nazi floating 20 feet off the roof. There was no tower, no indication of a tower, this guy was just floating. I verified there was nothing beneath him by walking underneath him and shooting him in the dick; which killed him and caused him to fall to the roof where I was. Can't have Nazi's floating around Paris.
Marney1
The 'two' indestructable zeppelins were in the middle; one either side .

The dead Nazis that glow - I don't see the point, unless they were glowing before I killed them.

Haven't done the general in the bullet-proof car yet but I did 'Act One' (Dierker) what an epic mission that was.

Missions 47%
Freeplay 15%
Nazis Killed 915
Zeppelins Destroyed 50
On Foot 106.28 km (Done nothing but run away)

I managed to turn my sports car onto it's roof while being chased which was a suprise as it seemed impossible to do up until that moment.
The Mausoleum mission was mega hard IMO I just went into gun 'n' run mode in the end and it paid off.
Had a few Nazis floating round but not as high as the one you shot in the bollocks, maybe Sean's permanently half pissed and that's why we see shit like that?

The map didn't appear that big to me at first but now it just seems immense and the countryside just rolls on forever in some places, love it absolutely love it!

I got RDX last night too. I found a parade of Sturmwagens down the hill from the titty club and couldn't pass up the opportunity. I placed 3 dynamite between the cars (drawing tons of attention) and blew everything in the street up, AT LEAST 5 Nazi vehicles. The RDX changes everything. I had one chain of explosions that net me over 1,500 in Contraband. You can detonate multiple RDX by re-selecting the RDX after you've placed one. I cleared a full field of cows with RDX too. Steaks for dinner.

I finished out my sniper perks, got the gold one as well, for killing 2 for 1's with the Sniper Rifle. I think I'm only going to use my sniper rifle for 2 for 1's and headshots. My accuracy percentage is over 100% with the sniper rifle. Anyway, the last gold perk unlocked the TERROR SCOPED RIFLE. I haven't gotten to play with it, I bought it at the end of the night. It holds up to 200 rounds of ammo. I'm hoping it has a suppressor or something which makes my shots silent. I'll change my name to Frederick Zoller. The rifle you got bought is the Steiner Rifle. Pretty awesome, HELLA powerful compared to the regular scoped carbine.

I used my free Gold Perk on the Mechanic strand of perks. That's the one where you have to collect every vehicle in the game. That kind of collection drives me fucking nuts. There's enough freeplay items to do where I'm not going to concern myself with that kind of shit. The sniping gold perk was relatively easy to achieve. I just threw a grenade, ran away, waited for a Sturmwagen to unload some troops and then lined up two in a row. BLAM! There were also a few instances where two Nazi's were just walking down the street, almost in a line, as if they KNEW I wanted to save ammunition while splitting their heads open.

How do you kiss girls? (Now there's something you don't ask everyday)

The hardest part about this is finding a girl available to kiss. They only appear during low-level Alarms (only at Level 1 at first, there is a perk that allows them to be available during Level 2 as well). They work just like a hiding spot, approach them and press Y or Triangle to initiate the makeout sequence. After the guards run by, Sean usually has something smooth to say to the lady. I've only kissed 5 or 6 girls, very hard to find. If you're trying to get the achievement/trophy, when you find one, keep causing an alarm in that area and running back to the same girl. They're fixtures on the map, like a shed or hatch.

I'm 49% now (just done the chemical factory) and I've seen loads of Rocket Lancher ammo but haven't come across one yet, how the hell do I get my hands on one?
Also haven't done a time trial - any clues?

Oh thanks for the 'kissing girls' info I'll give that a shot.

There's one IN the walls of the Chemical Factory. If your back is to the river, it is along the right side. It is on the right side of the building just to the right of the fixed machine gun, in a long crate marked with a red fire emblem. It's skinner, shorter, but longer than the other crates which have dynamite and grenades.

I'm not sure WHAT I did to unlock the rocket launcher in the store, but I remember the sales guy making an announcement about new powerful weapons available.
bOnEs
the rocket launcher unlocks around the time you get your checkpoint papers...

as for the time trial mission, that comes shortly after you do the mission for the new branch of resistance on the western side of the map... it's that prison mission me and stoic have talked about... once you complete that, a couple of races will unlock... a time trial and an actual race that took me three tries to beat... that lead racer is one tough bastard to pass...

the RDX proved to be the ticket last night for those freeplay zones that are very close together... i could plant a charge, set it off, wait for the enemies to turn their attention towards that, then plant another, wait for the search zones to disappear, and take out the final one... with the dynamite, there wasn't enough time to get to the other side of the freeplays... these bastards are fun to play with..

marney, it sounds like your about to pass me in stats biggrin.gif... unless i get cranking on some missions, you'll be passed me probably tonight... i've been putting a lot of focus and attention on freeplay zones... i want to get my percentage to 25% before i attempt my next main story mission...

and i have no clue why more people aren't playing this game... 7 pages of dialog in the assassin's creed II thread but, this thread is going to blow past that in a day or two... and probably continue to grow since, neither of us are very far into the game...

i love this game!!
PabloHoneyOle
I'm leaving this website and starting a new website; isaboteur.com.

I'm shocked no one is playing this little wonder as well. It's feckin awesome.
bOnEs
i like this game so much that i am going to try and make some new sig art biggrin.gif... it's a slow day today at work...

you know, it's kind of funny... here i am destroying these freeplay zones... i've probably knocked down at least a hundred of these yet, it's not getting old... i thought this part was going to be extremely repetitive but, half of them are approached differently... maybe there's a guard tower that will spot you entering a restricted area, or spot you approaching a tank to blow up... maybe there's a few things right next to each, or a tower that is nicely tucked away in a spot that makes it almost impossible to approach without being seen... or, you get ready to climb a wall and a nazi appears on your map... now you have to wait until he isn't looking at you... then, another one walks into the map and decides to round up a jew... so, you wait it out some more...

each freeplay zone almost feels different yet, they're not... i've cleared 4 districts (not areas but, the little zones blocked of by thick lines on the map)... and i am damn near close to clearing out a couple more... yet, i'm at like 17% completed... i could spend the next week focusing on only freeplay zones and still not get them all... there's just so damn many of them...
Marney1
Sounds like where I came across the launcher rounds at the chemical factory but I can go back and check. I'm about to get the checkpoint papers but have to do a mission first 'cos the cunt won't give them up.
I've got something like 21 hours play done but it's only because (once again) I've been up ALL night and tonight won't be any diferent, my wife is staying at work for the second night running because no public transport is running in the whole of Liverpool because London has robbed our grit.

Just been the pub for a pint of Guinness and a few grams of Peruvian Flake and just got myself a bottle of Jack Daniel's a bottle of Smirnoff and bottle of Coke so I can stay up in case my 32 year old body tries to sleep.

Still only got the one race car though and no perks in cars/racing.

iSaboteur.com eh? lol I was gonna search 'TheSaboteurForum.com' earlier and thought if it doesn't exist I'm claiming the domain. (Haven't searched yet).
I'm playing with 'normal' difficulty and it feels just right; not too hard and certainly not easy - how about you two?

As regards to the others here who aren't interested in the game I felt the same until Stoic's review which made my mind up for me (and yours bOnEs) because crytic reviews were harsh so thanks again because this really is a game not to be missed. YouTube is full of 'The Saboteur - FUNNY GLITCH - CRAZY BUG' blah blah and I suppose they're not helping with sales.
I did read though that EA said a sequel is highly likely IF sales impress.

PS; Have you noticed all the black women?
bOnEs
what black women? what black men for that matter?

i'm playing on normal too... i thought for a second i was going to have to bump the difficulty down to easy on the race mission... but, i passed it after the third try so, i didn't bother... normal feels right for me as well so far... but, i got nothing against bumping the difficulty down if you have problems with a certain mission... i do that sometimes with other games that offer that option... if the going gets tough, i bump it down until i am done with the mission that's giving me fits... i'm not one to get frustrated over one mission... just to pass it, i'll change the difficulty...



check out my new sig biggrin.gif... it's not perfect but, it's close enough....
PabloHoneyOle
I'm playing on Normal too. It's difficult enough that I ENJOY it without getting frustrated. It seems like I can absorb a hundred bullets before I die, I think if you bumped UP the difficulty you would just die quicker.

The black women aren't really dark but they look like they're of African descent to me.

That review didn't do much good for the game did it? Sounds like he might play through the games as fast as he talks and you can't do that with The Saboteur but I do agree with the camera angle being annoying while driving. I'm constantly pulling the camere down to see the horizon so I can see where I'm going but it just seems to be in the built up areas I need to do that.
Problem having to drive all the way across the map for your next mission? It got tedious for me in GTA4 but I like a long drive in the countryside with this on especially in a race car.

I was tempted to play last night, but I had a couple drinks after work and a blunt that pretty much knocked me out for the count.
I woke up at 11PM, watched 15 minutes of the new REAL WORLD and took 1000 aspirins in an attempt to kill myself and ended up falling back asleep.

Have either of you climbed the Eiffel Tower yet?

I've climbed it, but when I tried to jump from it, I was no where near landing in the lake and surviving the fall.

There is an achievement/trophy for doing both.
bOnEs
yea, i haven't made it out that way yet... twice i've headed towards it, only to get sidetracked by taking out freeplay targets...
Marney1
Tried climbing it and got half way and couldn't get any further. I was trying to run up the steel girders on the inside but wasn't really putting any effort in.
Jump off into the water eh? Sounds good - pisser if you miss though I'd imagine.

Yeah, insta death and you're transported back to HQ - no where near the Eiffel Tower.

I've climbed it twice. The first one was for an easy achievement. It took me awhile to get past one area where you have to jump out onto a ledge. It was when I first got the game and was unsure about the climbing mechanics. Sean can make some pretty incredible jumps.

Both times I've attempted to jump from the top have been met with complete failure. The first time I tried to jump from the tip-top of the tower, but I barely cleared the tower itself on the way down. The second time, I jumped from the top platform (which will still get you the achievement) and was literally 5 ft. from the lake, infact my dead body made it into the water after sliding down the embankment. Cruel irony. I haven't made it back yet, plus not really in a hurry to make that climb again. Maybe when the wife is working so I can roll a blunt while pressing "climb" 200 times.

It requires a couple of elevator rides or a shitton of climbing, however it's very detailed and pretty incredible. At this point in the game, it is fairly difficult to get there, especially in a car or any other conventional way. There are a bunch of unpassable Nazi outposts on the bridges. The easiest way to get there is jump in the river and swim across to a ladder to climb to the other side, then hoof it to the tower. There are 1 or 2 elevators working on the ground level and another elevator on the 2nd or 3rd level which may or may not work for you, depending how far you are in the game.
Marney1
The elevators were out when I attempted the climb but I did find a Tap (strange word for a postcard I think).
I love the way he can completely clear the fences in the fields when he's running and sometimes on a steep descent he will do the odd roll.

Getting back on it soon - last thing I did was collect my checkpoint papers.
bOnEs
i'll have to give this a shot tonight again, if i don't get distracted by that sniper tower just begging to be taken down... they say the view up there is breathtaking... it's in the paris area 3 isn't it? meaning, it's probably heavily guarded... i noticed when i got my checkpoint papers to enter the 2nd area of paris, that the 2nd area was a little tougher than the first area... the freeplay zones were closer together and more soldiers were walking the streets...

A few times I've thought I was dead because the screen went red only to realise I'm still alive and somehow manage to escape, weird.
PabloHoneyOle
Yeah, it's pretty neat when you think you're dead, but you're still running.

Blood red screen means you have seconds to live.
Marney1
When I'm done with normal difficulty I'll probably freeplay on hard but try not to kill any civilians. At the moment I've slaughtered just a few more than the Nazis mainly due to bad driving during get-aways so I plead not guilty to any war crimes but I am guilty of reckless driving.

I thought I'd join this epic topic because I've been playing, and 100%ed The Saboteur on PC. I played it none stop for about a week before christmas and destroyed all of the Nazi outposts, and finished all of the missions. Haven't completed all of the perks, but there's no real need to. No achievements or trophies on the PC. Awesome game though smile.gif

it's almost like GTA in the 40's, ain't it? biggrin.gif... i was beginning to think no one else was playing it... a lot of people seem to be passing on it because of pandemic's closing and the fact that the reviews mention sub-par graphics and minor bugs... but, none of those are bothersome, i don't even notice the issues anymore... all i see is good times...

the main story could probably be beat in a couple of days but, you'll get side-tracked like a mother fucker with all the shit to blow up and the side missions... there's literally thousands of nazi posts to blow up... and you'll be required to blow stuff up quite frequently because, blowing stuff up nets you currency you'll need to purchase stuff...

you won't get the full experience renting it... i've had it for almost 2 weeks now and i am only half-way through the main storyline because i keep getting side-tracked like a mother fucker, lol...

So is this game really worth the full price, or should I buy Uncharted 2?
bOnEs
uncharted 2... that game is fucking unbelievable... i played a few chapters when my friend bought it... it's epic on the grandest scale... but, it's linear and can be beat in a day or two.... but of course, the game just begs to be experienced over and over again (that's what she said) because, it's fun...

it's going to take you much longer than that to beat the saboteur.... well, that is if you want to finish it completely... it took psy a week nonstop to do all there is to do... it's taken me 2 weeks playing most nights to get half way through the story because, there's tons of stuff to blow up... i've only completed 17% of the side stuff, and i've been spending most of my time on those... to some, that might seem repetitive... to others, that's just more shit to do biggrin.gif...

i would strongly suggest the saboteur but, i wouldn't suggest it over uncharted 2 (sorry guys)... so, i say GET THEM BOTH!!

the saboteur will give you a longer adventure though...

Agree completely with bOnEs, Uncharted 2 is an amazing game. That's why I haven't been posting in this topic recently. For the last week or two I've just played through Uncharted 2 on three difficulties (normal, hard and crushing) and unlocked all of the trophies for it. Loved it. One of the best games ever. The Saboteur doesn't really come close to the graphics, storyline or voice work on Uncharted, but as previously mentioned, The Saboteur is pretty much a "GTA3" set in WW2. Doesn't have a huge amount of features, the graphics aren't amazing, some of the stuff is repetitive, especially destroying nazi towers (thank god for panzerschrecks), but it's just really fun to play. I'll definitely play through it again, maybe skipping the side objectives this time.

It's one of the biggest and most detailed game worlds I've ever seen. You can tell a LOT of time was spent developing it. The missions are GTA3 ish as well, pretty simple, one objective and it's completed. e.g. snipe this nazi general. You can do it however you want. As soon as he's dead, and you escape the nazi search radius it's mission complete. Whereas GTA4 would give you another 2 objectives after in the same mission.

Also I found a tip that might be useful for those just starting out. If you find a Nazi anti-air gun, either flakvierling or a flak 88, you can use it to blow up the zeppelins in the sky. Keep turning the view to the left and the zeppelins will keep spawning every 150 or so you turn around. Every time you shoot one you get 50 contraband. I did this to get like 1000 before doing the first few missions, pretty useful smile.gif

I'd definitely reccommend it though.

DEFINITELY worth picking up. Make sure you get it new though, so you can see the titties.

lol, always mention the boobies laugh.gif... you can also download the the nudie patch from the PSN store for $3... so technically, buying used is actually a better deal since most used games are usually at least $5 cheaper than a new one biggrin.gif...

You got me there.

This is how I purchased my perk upgrades.

I had a big night of playing last night in between watching the National Championship football game.

First thing I did was take out all of Le Havre. I got the achievement with a viewpoint and a jump left to do. I suppose the achievements are tied to destruction freeplay, not so much the random shit freeplay. Le Havre was pretty tough, especially the castle base to the north, tons of soldiers kept spawning. I finally found the barracks to destroy to stop the spawning, but it was quite the challenge. Good times.

I also beat the first "race" and the first country race. I beat the country race by carjacking the other drivers before the race. They never get back in their cars, they just stand there and bitch. I ended up racing against 2 Sturmwagens which were no match for the Beta Romero 12C I was rolling in. Skylar's car is my new favorite. Hands down.


I managed to get two out of the five Nazi General stealth kills I need for the Gold Perk. Up to last night, I've just been making canoes out of their heads from 100 yards away, now I'm getting a little more hands on. The silenced pistol is pretty awesome when used right for taking out the bodyguards. I also need to take one out while disguised for the Trick or Treat achievement. I'm worried I am going to run out of generals.

I also grinded out a few more kisses when I came across the kissable girl in Le Havre. She's right across the street from your garage. The mechanic also provides a distraction for any guards in pursuit of you when he busts out his shotgun. He's pretty deadly and allows you plenty of time to kiss the girl. I only need 20 more or so of those and 30 or so cigarettes for that achievement.

I also jumped off the Eiffel Tower, with success. By pressing and holding A or X (PS3) you seem to jump farther. I almost overshot the pond.

I used the AA guns to get myself 3,000 contraband and spent it on the Terror Sniper Rifle and have had another 3,000 since but haven't been given the option of using it to unlock anymore perks. Maybe it only allows you to 'cheat' once?

I didn't play much last night (finished off my bottle of Smirnoff) in fact I just collected my checkpoint papers and got the Prison Break mission but didn't attempt it, on it today though - I want a new sports car.

GTA III set in nazi-occupied paris in the 40's... you right psy, it really is more like GTA III...

had a productive night last night... did only one side mission... it involved destroying radar towers, a bunch of them... i did the entire mission in stealth, i am getting really good at infiltrating bases in disguise... i think it's the remote detonators that make things a little easier... but, i've also gotten used to how the detection meter works and how to distract and lure nazi's to where i want them to be...

but, i spent most of the night trying to liberate the countryside... my mission completion rose to 52% but, my freeplay completion percentage jumped from 17% to 28% biggrin.gif... i must of destroyed about a hundred nazi outposts and bases... i think i only died one time during the entire session... and that one time i died, i accidentally blew myself up with a remote explosive... i placed one on a wulf tank and forgot to switch off the detonator and tried planting another one when i blew myself up laugh.gif... other than that, i whooped some nazi ass last night...

also found the pigeon shooting gallery last night too... that shit started getting hard...

You worked hard last night bOnEs, 17% to 28% that's some serious commitment.
bOnEs
yea but, once you get damn good at taking that stuff out, it can happen a lot faster... i literally walked on foot through the countryside blowing up everything i could... there's a huge section in the middle of my map void of all nazi stuff... so yea, i did work pretty hard at it... i'll probably tackle a main mission tonight and maybe another side mission... but, then i'll be right back at the freeplay stuff... my plan is to get the percentage to about 35% tonight...

i know it's a friday night tonight but, i had surgery yesterday and quite frankly, i don't want to do much drinking tonight or go anywhere...

Done a good few missions tonight and Skylar's car sticks to the road like glue.

Missions 66%
Freeplay 20%

Nazis Killed 1,169

Civilians Killed by me 149
Civilians Killed by Nazis 152

i still prefer the altair... skylar's car is nice but, it's handling is a little too tight for my tastes... i actually like the silver claw better than her car... but, nothing matches the altair in my books...

missions - 56%
freeplay - 40%

i couldn't tell you the other numbers but, i blew up a lot of shit again biggrin.gif... i did two side missions, i recall you guys talking about these missions earlier as well... one was the chemical facility and the other was the zeppelin fueling station... and guess what, i beat both of them without ever raising the alarm... i'm getting pretty damn good at that biggrin.gif...

my next story mission involves me meeting bryman somewhere in paris area 2... i'll pry do that one this afternoon...

i've got 4 gold perks now as well... i purchased the silver and gold perk upgrades as well, using them on the car collectathon perks... i'm wondering though if i should of used the gold on the "escape a level 5 alarm" because, something tells me that isn't going to be easy at all... i hope there's a few missions that give you the opportunity to escape a level 5 alarm because, i am finding it hard to get to a level 4 alarm just by myself...
