I looked up many many reviews of this game and they all give it about a 3 out of 10 saying its really bad. Well its not. The only thing i really had a problem with was the vampire modeling. I have been playing games recently just to find the faults and fails of games and pretty much doing my own reviews for games. This game for me was a really good game that i enjoyed playing. I couldn't find any glitches or just annoying game play mechanics that made the game broken. The character animation did not have, like most mainstream titles have, annoying animation that hinders your game play experience. This game is a pure stealth game for about a good portion of the game. You get weapons in which you really devastate vampires and made it feel good killing them. Many people hate the difficulty but i felt the realism refreshing. Its not really scary and fortunately it only had like on "surprise this should scare you" moment. The game was pretty simple for the most part and if you have any intelligence you will find it pretty easy to avoid enemies. The voice acting is good except for the vampires. The audio is good, except for the vampires. Except for the vampires, overall the game was done well. The quality of the vampires is that of probably ps1 standards and I'm not joking. Its a good splinter cell/ metal gear solid clone. You shouldn't expect revolutionary things with this game but I still really enjoyed playing it. My real rating for this game would really probably be a 8 out of 10. I give it a 10 out of 10 just so i can maybe boost the overall ratings because a 3 out of 10 is a little too low for this. If your a real gamer, that enjoys playing games and like somewhat good story line then rent this game. If you just want your gears of war graphics and see many shiny things to distract you and kill a lot of stuff then stay with your Killzone 2 and Resistance. I say rent it, try it out. And heck, I would buy this game, if they did just a little bit better on the vamps.

This game is basicly trying to sneak around "tom clancy" style, but with trying to avoid "nightwalkers" (aka vampires). since there is no easy mode you will die... a lot. even if you think you sneaked by you ether get spotted by them or another "nightwalker" and with 24 regular missions being tough, ranks don't make it much easier, especially when trying to get rank S for the main missions, trial, and several other "mini missions". but a somewhat interesting story. This game isn't for the easily frustrated, especially since you get killed in one hit, usually by a "nightwalker" you thought you avoided or didn't see. and use your ammo sparingly.

I read the reviews and was getting ready to pass on this,but I went against the negativity and glad I did so.This game is a thinking game of stealth planning and executing your route to complete the task.Yes if a vampire sees you all it takes is two strikes and goodbye to you.That's what made it more exciting for me to try a alternate plan to get the job done.My hands would shake trying to do a stealth kill.Take the game as it is a stealth/action game.This game is not hard and not easy.If you like hard games like ninja gaidan you can play this.If stealth is not your game your not gonna like this and appreciate it.Also don't depend on your AI partners because when it comes down to it them vampires will run right through them to get to you.
