In this stealth shooter you play Agent Alekhine, a highly skilled Russian assassin driven by a moral compass that leads you headfirst into a covert operation unsanctioned by the country you serve. Working alongside American CIA agents, your mission is clear - though how you accomplish it is anything but - as the tension of a nuclear standoff grows with each passing minute. In a world where one wrong move could be the end of you, navigating a new direction comes at a price. Expand

    On paper, the game sounds brilliant but they just don’t execute it properly.

    Alekhine's Gun hardly does anything right. The gameplay feels ancient and the AI is not particularly intelligent. It's based on a concept we enjoyed in the past, but in a shape that doesn't make it enjoyable anymore.

    Given another year or two this might have turned out to be a solid Hitman alternative, but as it stands Alekhine’s Gun fails on every level – poor AI, abysmal frame rate, sub-par visuals, and horrendous shooting.

    Dreary and glitchy, a reminder that Hitman 2: Silent Assassin isn't as good as you recall. [May 2016, p.78]

    I suppose I should have realized Alekhine's Gun was going to have quality concern issues following its numerous delays. I just wasn't aware of how severe these problems would be, as the stale gameplay and dated graphics barely put it on level with games from the last console generation.

    In the rare moments where its elements come together, you’ll be playing a neat, but irrelevant Hitman clone. But most of the time you’re just annoyed by technical and AI shortcomings.

Clunky gameplay, poor physics, moronic cutscenes and no brightness option makes this a complete and utter dud. To even compare this to Hitman is an insult to the franchise. Expand

    This is the first game I have played where I found no positives! It is so copycat, I forgot that I wasn't playing the godfather on Xbox 360.This is the first game I have played where I found no positives! It is so copycat, I forgot that I wasn't playing the godfather on Xbox 360. I personally adored the godfather but this...
    Firstly, the stealth doesn't work as you can move in cover, but not turn corners!
    Secondly, whenever you pick up and move an enemy soldier, the body looses all texture and looks like a metal gear solid character!
    Worst of all, I paid a whole thirty-two pounds for a game not even worth getting on games with gold.
    At the end of the day, only buy this if your brain cell count is lower than the average only way is Essex cast member!
