This game is just terrible. If Assassin's Creed and Grand Theft Auto had a baby and named it Saboteur this would be it. But all the best genes of those games would be recessive.
You can climb. But it's so awful you will look for anyway to avoid it. You can wear disguises and try to blend but if an enemy sees you walking faster than a cripple you'll be uncovered. If you walk past an enemy your meter will go up and you'll be uncovered. Why not just go in guns blazing? Because the guns shoot feather bullets. You will put 10 bullets in an enemy before the game thinks he shouldn't be so accurate anymore and then he'll fall down.
Side missions are plentiful. But very very very boring. Sure the perk system requires you to do them. For a few. Then you're just doing them for no reason; climb, plant explosive, enemies approach, try and climb down building, realise only way to initiate climbing is to run at edge of rooftop. Here's where it gets interesting. You either run off the edge and die OR grab the edge and then gradually DROP TO EVERY POSSIBLE LEDGE ON THE WAY DOWN. Those german bad guys aren't fans of Parkour either.
There's nothing Irish about the protagonist. His catchphrases are repetitive, annoying and unfunny. Listen for "I'VE SPRUNG A LEAK" when bleeding. Sounds like an Australian with bad plumbing.
