    You won't want to stop playing this one for quite awhile, with the interesting story, realistic missions, super graphics, and the whole bag of chips.
  2. Defies easy categorization by being equal parts a stealth-based sneaker, a puzzler, and a straight-up shooter. After playing video games for so many years, I appreciate games that shake things up a bit.
  3. This game has it all: a solid story, good graphics, sound, level designs, and the ability to choose different paths to complete your mission.

    Basically one huge lesson in trial and error. [Dec 2002, p.140]

    A well conceived and executed third person game with superior video and audio elements worthy of the system.
  6. A truly addictive piece of videogaming...A guaranteed hit!

    A deep, refreshingly stylistic adventure that lets you play at the pitch you desire. [Dec 2002, p.83]

    By far a 10, top of my list of games ever. Still blows other games out of the water...and I imagine number 3 will be just as badass.

    Very entertaining game, but a little on the difficult side. The graphics are great, and there is a lot to do in every mission. Plus, its Very entertaining game, but a little on the difficult side. The graphics are great, and there is a lot to do in every mission. Plus, its pretty open-ended, so there's often more than one way to complete a mission. Stealth/action fans will love it, those looking for a fast-paced shoot-'em-up won't. Expand

    Hey, C'mon you guys. You're just happy that there's a stealth type game out for XBOX, hence your rating it a 10. Look at the Hey, C'mon you guys. You're just happy that there's a stealth type game out for XBOX, hence your rating it a 10. Look at the PS2 reviews, this game lies within 6-8, if it weren't for the controls (PC style and Max Payne style without the slowmo) that brings it down to 6. Great concept, acceptable graphics (more Innocent people are lacking on the streets) and the sound could also create a better atmosphere. Don't get inflationary when you review games, you might mislead other games, and Honestly 10???? Get real, this is not a masterpiece and 10 = Masterpiece. Expand
