This is a game that has a bit of a learning curve. Taking the stealth role through things actually requires thought and planning, something that caught me off guard. The design of this game is so much more intelligent than others that I literally wasn't expecting it. After figuring out how everything works together it is an amazing game. Approach it how you want, upgrade what works for you, and have at it. For me it was sit back, listen, observe, plan, and stalk through level after level of attention-demanding fun.
I really enjoyed certain aspects of this game, but I have to say, I am not entirely pleased with this being an Arkane Studios production. I mean the game itself was far more cartoonish and simplistic than I had hoped seeing as that Bethesda decided to put their name on it. The gameplay however is quite smooth and supremely, entertainingly violent. I am not a fan of moral choices they seem to me to be subjective and actually make the gameplay more linear, rather than the portrayed spectrum of possibilities. I had fun, but this is not the game hyped for months on end and hardly worth someone like Bethesda's time.
