Overview
====================
If you are all about being sneaky and sniper kill cams, then you'll love it. In full discolusre I only played a couple of levels and I just got bored. As other have commented there isn't much variety...

If you will it is kind of splinter cell WW2 style. There are interesting tactics like killing someone and booby-trapping the body. You also have things like mines and trip wires. All good stuff if it keeps you interested. For me I just felt like the controls were stiff and game play was slow.

Pros
==============
1) get to be sneaky
2) cool kill cams (at least for the 1st 10 kills)

Cons
==============
1) controls were a little too tight for me
2) just gets repetitive

Played halfway though so far and it's definitely feeling repetitious. I liked the demo and was expecting a little more intense moments from the full game. You have to be patient and stealthy and not count on your secondary guns too much cause they are underpowered and getting ambushed will most likely get you killed. After a while it does feel dated with a mix of CoD World at War and Resistance 1. Overall, it's a sniper game so there really is much more than pegging people off from a distance with an added slo-mo x-ray kill cam. At times you will feel like you're playing the levels over again and a little variety could have gone a long way. A good rent, no buy.

Was really looking forward to this, one. Moved it up, a couple notches, to top of Q. When I got it, the only thing my controller would do, was to let me use the binoculars. Total waste. Wasn't in my PS3 for even 10 minutes.
