Most of the major games for 2009 have now been released, but Electronic Arts has been holding one game back which they hope will grab everyone's attention upon its release on December 4th. We've been playing the PC version of The Saboteur for the last few days, but can't write about it until December 3rd when the embargo lifts.

We'll publish our full review then, but as it's the last of the bigs games of 2009, we thought we'd let you know what it's all about.

From Pandemic Studios, the team behind the likes of Mercenaries 2 and Star Wars Battlefront, The Saboteur is an open world action/adventure where you star as a Saboteur as he fights, climbs, and races through a uniquely stylised version of Nazi-occupied France, which blossoms into colour as you elimate the enemy. As you progress through the game, you go from a dark and oppressed black and white policed state, to a bright and inspired world where the citizens fight back.

Set in 1940's Paris, you play as Sean Devlin, a street-tough Irish racing mechanic seeking personal redemption.With the help of the French Resistance, British intelligence, an arsenal of weaponry, and your own street smarts and brawn, the aim of the game is to exact revenge on those who aimed to destroy your life. Motivated by retribution, you have sabotage on your mind as you blow up zeppelins, derail trains, implode bridges, destroy armored tanks, and level enemy facilities in the name of vengeance.

The Paris location features many famous sites including the Eiffel Tower the riverbanks of the Seine, the cathedral of Notre Dame and the prestigious Champs-Élysées. As a saboteur you're able to climb buildings (Assassin's Creed style), sneak and execute stealth kills to infiltrate the Nazi occupation.

Alongside gun-play, melee attacks and stealth play, The Saboteur features a range of vehicles which can be hijacked. From high performance racecars to military vehicles you can drive any vehicle that comes along to escape your pursuers.

The Saboteur is set for release on December 4th, 2009.
