Utilizing a suprisingly interesting and inovative cover system, the new post-Jason Bourne Bond, and 2 stories in one!

The game has three notable differences that make it so great. The first is its amazing new cover mode. After the first several times I died I finally learned to use the cover system. With a simple button tap you will crouch under a table, behind a post, or next to the desk it simply makes firefights fightable. I found the game would occasionally confuse buttons, but other than that the cover system is nearly fullproof. The very interesting part of the game is the choice you have, to be the crazy charging gunslinger, or the silent, invisible double O agent. As I tried both challenging ways I soon came to realize that being out of sight is harder than it appears. Gunslinging is nearly immpossible in this game but is doable by a seasoned veteran. While both have their own rewards, I find being quiet until caught is the most survivable method. The third intresting feature is the melee attacks. Even with this simple point and click system you still feel like your doing something influential to the "takedown". Especially when your takedowns fail.
This game is completely different from the WWII shooters many of us our are so used to. The game uses diferent qualities all working together to make it feel completely fresh and new, and it works. While it has its flaws, alltogether it is a very powerful and solid game making up at least ten hours of your good time in the campaign alone. In the multiplayer you might find another 20 hours. I would not call a renter but a solid buy!
