    If hardcore stealth is your game, satisfaction is guaranteed. [June 2005, p.57]
  2. You can't play and enjoy Stolen like it's another action game off the shelf at all, and that's going to understandably rankle some traditionalists.

    The levels and missions are equally unremarkable, which makes for yet another promising stealth title that doesn't live up to its potential. [June 2005, p.127]
  4. Although it is relatively entertaining to play the game falls flat mostly because of a few key aspects: enemy AI, and the sheer linearity of the level design and gameplay.
  5. Stolen could've been a good game, but the inept AI and poor controls make this game more of a chore than a fun experience.
  6. It's a Zen-like stealth game busted by wibbly AI, making it an ambitious take on the genre, but one that's too flawed to fulfil its sizeable promise. [Xbox World]
  7. Despite having a great premise for a stealth action game, we were disappointed by the finished product.
  8. It isn't an awful, broken, unplayable mess or anything; it's just not a particularly outstanding game in any regard. Competent and generic spring to mind as soon as you start playing, but it borrows enough of the right elements to make it playable.

    It clearly copies other existing games and does so in a rather sloppy way.
  10. Edge Magazine

    Sadly, encounters with enemy AI - particularly in combat - are by far the weakest link in an otherwise enjoyable effort. [Apr 2005, p.98]
  11. An undeveloped plot, derivative gameplay, idiotic enemies, and boring presentation.
  12. More bungling thief than Entrapment-esque vixen, this is a criminal excuse for a stealth 'em up. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  13. Below average and somewhat unpolished when compared to other games in the genre.

    I actually liked this game and thought it was fun, but then again - I'm not that hard core a gamer. I feel sorry for the people who seem I actually liked this game and thought it was fun, but then again - I'm not that hard core a gamer. I feel sorry for the people who seem to hate most of the games they play. Full Review »
