I think this game is going to take a lot of people by surprise.
I really couldn’t be happier with it. I liked the demo and knew I was buying a good game but I didn’t expect to outright love it like I do.
Once you get the gameplay down, it’s basically video game crack. Once you get past the opening areas, the levels really open up nicely as well.
This is as far removed from run and shoot as you can get. You have the freedom to a point to approach challenges the way you want.
For example: In interiors I like to usually go Silent Assassin Agent 47 style up close with my silenced pistol otherwise it’s all sniper all the way.
You get an ever growing list of real life weapons from the era as you progress. The better shots you make, the more points you make which go on leaderboards against other players and I’m pretty sure contribute to how fast you unlock weapons and other goodies.
Here’s how you do it: Keep your heart rate down, use clear lung in scope mode, and pay attention ONLY to the red marker that you will see. That is exactly where your bullet will go in the target.
The higher difficulties mean more realistic and unforgiving bullet ballistics and physics and enemy AI.
