Rated 3 out of 10 by fumefirst Mediocre and nothing that new
Good Graphics and okay sound. The plot is typical of the series or competitors. There are some cool customizations, but nothing new.
The game is pretty buggy. You have to stand exactly one foot away from something to interact, otherwise the game gets confused if you are too close. Interacting with the world has not advanced since the first game of the series. The enemies are drones with predictable patterns and responses. The reward/punishment system for using the right/wrong path isn't severe enough, so I still find myself Rambo-ing the levels after I sneak by a few guys at the beginning of each level. You can only climb certain railings or shimmy across pre-defined ledges, and it gets frustrating because you have no idea the reason why that's the case, other than to make the game more difficult. Because you can only interact with certain things, gameplay is clunky, and the "right" way to go through the levels plays like a children's puzzle.
Not having enough checkpoints is also frustrating. You have to repeat the same 10 minutes of gameplay because you are still working on the last 30 seconds.
If you're hoping for a game where the enemies are as smart as those in the Crysis series, interaction with the world is like Uncharted, or the levels are as cleverly designed as Hitman, you'll be disappointed. Install the game; play it in-between the better titles coming out soon; and use the install disk as a coaster, because I doubt you'll want to put it on your next machine.

This game is a must have. I have seen the first mission and it is so cool. You have so many ways to take down people. You can have sleeping gas or sticky shockers. Be as quiet or as loud as you want to be. I know the voice as changed for Sam Fisher, but is has worked out in the end. You can buy upgrades for your gear and spys vs mercs is back and better then ever. Just buy this game you will not regret it. ( like gears of war judgement) HA HA
