So I was browesing the Bit-Tech.net website like i do and came across a preview for an up and coming WWII sandbox game called The Saboteur. (http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/pc/2009/05/07/the-saboteur-preview/1)

Here is a quote:
Rather than limiting you to a single, linear and heavily scripted path The Saboteur drops you in an entirely open sandbox from the star.

Later I read a different article about the canceled Dark Knight movie-tie in game from Pandemic. (http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2009/01/16/batman-game-behind-pandemic-closure/1)

Here is another quote from this article:
In order to help save time, Pandemic decided that the best idea was to use an existing engine that they already owned - so, they chose the engine for Pandemic LA's upcoming WWII shooter, Saboteur. Unfortunately, that engine was designed very much for linear games with small, complex levels and didn't mesh well with the free-roaming design Pandemic had ham-handedly developed.

Now this is slightly confusing, is the Saboteur open world or linear?:confused:

It does, i agree but if its Open-World then why not use it for Dark Knight? Not that i want to see another crap movie tie in I'm just struck by the contrast in the statements.

Doesn't sound open world to me.
