Does anybody like this game?

I love this game. It is a fun game. Not the best game in the world but I really like it. Everybody I talk to says they hate it. Everybody complains about the checkpoints. It is supposed to be hard. They are just a bunch of little girls. This game is also very realistic. So am I the only one who likes this game?

I agree about the checkpoints, although I do like the game. The checkpoints are absurdly far apart. There is no difficulty in redoing the same exact step by step thing 25 times because the checkpoints are 3 miles apart. There is just tedium.

I dislike stealth games that require you to be non-stealthy for such huge portions of the game. I am on mission 6 now and every other kill requires you to go non-stealth to get 100% kills and you need almost 100% kills to get your 300 at the end.

I agree, I hate the damn upgrade system. Can't go wrong with a free game.

The upgrades seem a little pointless as they don't seem to make much difference until you max out your stars which is a little weird. Noticed that if you have max stealth with the SS uniform you make no noise with high heals.

Not overly pleased with the checkpoints they take the piss sometimes but the game is really well made though there are a few bugs.

All most all situations can be done in stealth. It just will take alot of time and thinking. Whistle at the soldiers to get them where you want and take them out.

There must be some difficulty for you if you keep replaying the checkpoints. Meaning you must die alot or mess up. I think the most I have had to play a checkpoint over again was 7 to 10 times due to me only wanting to use stealth kills.

i do like this game a lot. but there should be some sort of melee attack, besides the knife. if someone gets to close you should be able to punch them in the throat or something. im not very good at stealth games but im learning. AND i hate how you cant revisit a level to get things u missed.. thats just garbage.

Don't miss anything.

I think the game is alright, nothing special, but definately not as bad as everyone is making it out to be. If you are looking for a great stealth game that gives you a challenge, then find another game... Splinter Cell would probably feel lile a better choice.

But if you want a game that makes you feel like an assassin god, play this... guards are horribly blind and stupid, there is only one instance so far that I couldn't get past without stealth, and thats the end of 4. If I used Morphine I probably could have done it, but I wanted Detox there, cause the first 3 levels almost require you to use it to stay stealth.

Im not trying to hate on anybody, i really disliked this game. All it did was upset me. I tried to keep calm during the game but i couldn't take it anymore. I kept trying to kill the god damn butcher of France but his little bitches would kill me on the spot. Finally, i just gave up. I really don't want to do that again.

First time though that part annoyed me big time as well but it's just about taking your time and picking off his lackeys.

I still think the flame throwers guys really take the piss though as once they have locked onto you there isn't any escape really unless your near a door.

I still think the end of level shoot outs are a little harsh though seeing as this is a stealth game but it makes sense as the war didn't always allow people to sneak around i guess.

Horrid war, horrid things happens but it's damn fun killing this guys.

Don't give up so easy
I did it on my 4th try. The Butcher's guards werent the problem for me, I took them all out with the pistol and exploding barrel. It was the Butcher himself who was the challenge. I went in with about 13 pistol rounds, spent 2 on each of the 4 guards and 1 on the explosive barrel to kill the 5th guard in the corner. That left me with 4 rounds for the Butcher. Hit him with each one - no effect whatsoever. I had to actually get behind him and stealth kill him, which was difficult because once he know's you are there, he almost never turns his back. Luckily he did turn round eventually and I had chance to sneak up on him and kill him.
I found lots of shotgun ammo on dead bodies and crates in that final bell tower but I had no shotgun, I exchanged it for the pistol in an earlier level - shame, shotgun would have been welcome!

The checkpoints are only a bitch to me when i get caught.
I try to do most of the game stealth so i have good health for hard parts, So when i get caught i mostly restart my checkpoint, This pissed me off big time on the Docks level, Because it took me back to the beggining after clearing out 3 diffrent area's. In the end i gave up and just ran arround guns blazing.

This is one of my favourite games for the 360. Its only problem is its re-playability. The enemies react the same and are positioned the same no matter what the difficulty which is a shame.

i'm liking this game alot.
the stealth is done well, many ways to get to the enemy but not too much. in Splinter Cell you can have thousand of gadgets which makes the game too easy some times.
VA requires you to think about situations more.

I would rate this game a 80+ if it wasn't for the crappy checkpoint-system and not being able to revisit a level for missed collectibles. So it's stuck on a 75/100

To be honest I like this game very much although it is worse than Spliter Cell and Metal Gear. The plot is pretty strait-forward and I often get mixed-feeling when i go through the whole story line. But the stealth kill system disatisfy me. Quite a pitty.

That's a little harsh bro. I can't really form a complete opinion because I haven't played the game much (just picked it up a couple days ago), but from what I saw there are some interesting elements in the game.

Also, there are very few games with a female lead; I can only think of Wet, Mirror's Edge, Perfect Dark, Tomb Raider & Kameo off the top of my head. This coupled with the fact that it is based on a real person makes the game more interesting than most. It is also a WWII game that focuses on something other than the epic action-laden war battles which is a nice change.

If you don't like stealth games, this isn't for you but that hardly means its as bad as you've made it sound.

Just finished this one today. It reminded me of a less-polished Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, which is one of my favorite games of all time.

I could have done without the combat sections (especially since the gunplay is so lousy), but the stealth was relatively well done (not perfect, but pretty good).

My main complaints: This game really would have benefited from a manual save feature to supplement the checkpoint system (Oh, I can't wait to hear these soldiers' five minute conversation again). And no level select option? That's just inexcusable, in my opinion.
