i actually don't mind it, to be honest i thought it would have been a bit better but from playing the first two missions it doesn't seem all that bad just have to get used to all the sneaking in it lol not used to it but yeah its not a bad game well worth the money in my opinion

I was not really a big fan of it. It had its good moments like the story line but, the problem for me was the aiming of the guns was really bad, which I know you really aren't meant to shoot that much but, for the last level it just made it that much harder.

I just finished this game with my full thousand. Beat the last two levels today on Agent first then did my Blitzkreig achievement and this is what I have to say:

The game was solid. I enjoyed myself for the first 10 levels. The run and gun bit at the end was crappy, mostly because the AI is stupid hard. I did find that if you wait around a corner that they will just march into your bullets. The poor gun mechanics ruined what was otherwise a very fun game. When I shoot someone in the head 3 times, I expect them to go down. Don't get me started on the crappy ending either.

Fun while it lasted, but not a keeper. I'd give it a 6.

I really like the game. Not the best game but still quite fun, although going back for a collectible kinda sucks, but any its really fun. And Venomized likes it too, were playing through at the same time. He's already beat it since I had to go back for stupid missed collectibles.

The game plays and feels alot like a Splinter Cell only placed in WWII. It is still a great game though

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

I loved the game!

It had an incredible atmosphere to it, I was comepletely immersed when playing it. Plus the gameplay was solid; I can't remember encountering any glitches or control issues at all.

Definately worth an 8/10

I really want a sequel but I know it's highly unlikely

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.

I hate to bump a thread up so much, but I think this is a great game! It definitely flew under the radar!

I just picked this one up from GameFly today. It wasn't on the top of my list, but I'm actually really glad I got it. So far, I've only played through the first few levels, but I'm really enjoying it.

The fact that you can walk right in front of someone just because you're in a shadow is a little silly, but all stealth games suffer from this sort of thing from time to time.

I enjoyed this game, didn't even mind the flaws in it, I thought the scenery was nice and story was done at a nice pace.

Of course, never had so much fun stealth killing a bunch of blind Nazi's!

After completing my first play through i still think its a good game.

there is a lot of silly things about it with the ancient stealth mechanics but its good fun for $10.

I liked all the times you had to sneak around. It felt like I was playing Thief. My biggest disappointment is when the game puts shooting segments in it. I like when you have to sneak around but I don't like it when they make shoot people. The enemies are also kind of gay. You can whistle in one side of the room and hide in the other but the enemies will always point their guns in your direction.

Overall, the game is quite enjoyable, with no "major" flaws, except the horrendous combat and that the last mission forced me to do it (I got pissed off and stopped playing). but as a stealth game it was good, there ain't many on xbox. I would purchase the sequel, if they ever make one.

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.

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.

I have played thru the first 2 chapters, and this kind of game drives me crazy. I honestly, wish I had never started it. Still got 900 points to go to finish it off. Games that ask you to collect batches of items and make you do it all in one campaign annoy me. Collectibles are a side-note for me, and I like to run though at the end and grab whatever I missed. Can't do that here
