I posted a developer's demo for Konami's Saw videogame a few days ago, but it didn't have any actual combat footage in it. Here's a different clip from GameTrailers, complete with a look at how you'll be fighting your way through and a very unpleasant surprise.

Gamers will be able to decide if they want to live or die this October.

Yeah, I’m with you on all counts, Dan. I couldn’t really figure out how or why they’d add combat to a Saw game, and then seeing it in action made me feel like it’s something that needs a lot of work before October.

The exploding head is definitely the highlight of the whole trailer. It’s hard to go wrong with that sort of thing.

But when I saw that it was going to feature ‘combat footage’ I had to check it out. My initial assumption was that combat had as much place in a SAW game as combos do in a Silent Hill game.

Nothing I saw in that video disabused me of this notion.

In fact, the only thing I was left thinking was that even if they massively clean up all the animation by October, I still wouldn’t be excited about the prospect of playing that.

And then it ended with an exploding head, which won me back just a little.
