I haven't finished the game but I got far enough to review it.
I really love it, the story line is so far great, the graphics are amazing, I mainly love the 3D look to a lot of contents in the game. I love how it reminds me of Bioshock, Fallen and Even a bit of Skyrim but mainly more of a Bioshock fel to it than anything. I also like the background noise they give as you play, i feel like it draws the person more as they play. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys games like Bioshock, Fallen or Skyrim.
The main people I would suggest this game to is those who really want to be the best, or enjoy a challenge other than just beating the game. A rather short game, it took me about a day worth of play to beat it on the toughest difficulty with the Low chaos ending(Stealth). Pretty lackluster story overall. Framed, seeking revenge, obtain revenge, hooray. Pretty much a straight forward funnel game. Nothing that really stands out, unless you want to challenge yourself and you seek acheivements out to prove yourself in the gamer world. A nice break from Oblivion or Fallout if you've done everything in those games. Otherwise, its a rental and nothing more. Nothing innovative as far as abilities or gameplay go. Freezing time is fun for the first ten times, but as everything else in this game it all ends up feeling more like a chore. Worth a try if you like the RPG style FPS. Nothing to write home about overall.

If you love stealth games...you will love this one. If you don't..then you will give this game a low score. I'm only on my first go around but the game is tight. I don't really know at this point how much more equiptment i'm going to receive but so far i'm a bad motherfather. sword in one hand gun or crossbow(or magic, or a heart; used to find things,in the other hand. And on top of that you can upgrade these items. It has a cool block and counter system that keeps it from being just a hack and slash. You have multiple Arrows from your crossbow to use. (lethal and non lethal) you can use grenades. Now there are two endings to this game depending if you kill or don't kill. right now i choose to kill and rats are showing up everywhere. and they will attack you in packs and devour you whole. lol same with the enemy. They only flaw i really saw in the game is the controls feels a little wierd. kinda like your over moving. like you will aim your cursor to pick up something and it will over shoot what you trying to grab. but after awhile you get used to it. Now its not an open world like grand theft auto or fallout or skyrim, but it does give you multiple ways to get to your location, like the last splinter cell. And heck, its gamefly, no matter what the review is you should always give it a shot. i never base a games rating by someone elses OPINION.
