  • Summary: Cold War follows a freelance journalist who finds himself in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the U.S.S.R. Twelve hours after arrival in Moscow for a routine story, he has been stripped of all possessions, beaten unconscious, and thrown into the KGB's political prison. Now you must match wits and strength against the powerful Russian enemy using only recovered weapons and improvised gadgets to eliminate opponents. Whether you choose to evade or overcome elite Soviet forces, you must defeat the conspiracy before you're sent to a Siberian prison camp or killed. Collapse

  1. If we've learned anything with time, it's that it is much better to be pleasantly surprised by a budget title than to be underwhelmed by a full-price title, and Cold War is a pleasant surprise indeed.
  2. A competent if unspectacular stealth game.
  3. There are a lot of better stealth-action games out there, but die-hard stealth-action fans should give Cold War a try.
  4. I was looking forward to seeing the stealth genre taken in a new direction with Cold War. Sadly it didn't quite meet the expectations I had for it.
  5. There is a lot to like with Cold War but for every great feature you spot you'll come across another one that just doesn't work. It's a shame, as at times the title shows great promise.
  6. The stealth aspects of the game are clumsy and unimpressive, the action scenes are equally as un-fun, and it is all rolled up in a rather lackluster package.

    Its attempts to stand out are partially successful at best, but solid production values and a lower than average price tag could be agreeable to people predisposed to this type of gameplay.

    An enjoyable take on the stealth action genre. Obviously not at the same level as Splinter Cell but a valuable addition none the less.
