This game definitely exceeded my low expectations. I was expecting a very cheesy action game with little to no story. Well the story was actually decent but the action sequences throughout each cutscene were very fun to watch. As for the stealth in this game, there is really no reason to use it unless you'd like to get through an area faster than going through a whole wave of enemies. However this doesn't really feel like a stealth game and more often than not you are going to get caught by the cheap stealth system this game offers. On the bright side, whenever an enemy is alerted you can take advantage of the engaging combat system and slice your way through every enemy that stands in your way (and its couch). The boss battles are challenging, but also feel fun and rewarding. If you're interested in exploring the twisted mentality of Raiden and interested in the destruction, hack'n'slash, and epic moments that this game offers, then do yourself a favor and play it.
this game is suppose to be hack and slash but its not even worth nothing in that genre. they attempted to make some mission impossible stealth factor but it's non existent. the combat isn't even that great i'd rather play GOW 1
