this game seems great and has alot of potential but the lack of players is a serious problem. the game is definitley not worth 14.99 for only being able to play on 1 or 2 servers and buggy gamemode. the concept is good and with a lot of advertising mabye the game will have more players(and mabye less violent and rude ones).

Fun, but not worth $15. Incomplete level editor, random glitches, and low player count. Got it gifted from a friend, but definately wouldn't buy it on my own. It's been in early access for 2 years, don't know when the problems will get fixed.

PROS:

Interesting concept
Multiple gamemodes
Level editor
Easy to host servers
Nice lighting

CONS:

Level editor only works for TDM, the main gamemode can't even be used in player made levels.
No light switches.
Sometimes, certain parts of the map don't show up when you join a level editor server.
Sometimes, your flashlight breaks in the level editor
Feels unfinished
Buggy

The concept is pretty good, but still alot of stuff to do/change, but overall the game is pretty decent for a Indie

A fun game of cat and mouse. There's quite a few gamemodes and maps but unfortunately not a lot of players. I went on a couple days ago (from when I wrote this review) and only 14 people were playing. If you really want to try it, get the demo since that's basically the game but without bonus content like more characters. Hopefully there'll be a free weekend sometime and the playerbase will rise.

This is a great game. Don't let the only 2 hours or so of playtime affect this, I've been playing this for quite a while now. I've seen it change a bit and for the better.

Pros:

Pretty dang fun gameplay
Easy to host a server if there's a need for one.
The graphics and lighting are cartoony and smooth. Really good on the eyes.
I haven't run into any serious or game breaking glitches while playing it.
Several Gamemodes (Guards and Thieves, Zombie Rush, Soccer, Madball, Team Death Match, etc.) so there is variety other than just stealth modes.

Cons:

Sometimes a server you connect to may make your (or others) ping a little high, but the Devs are working on having actual servers.
Currently only multiplayer, but that too will change in the future.

Other than that, there's no serious issues with the game. The Devs are constantly adding stuff and have tons of plans ahead for future gamemodes. If you're a fan of Stealth games, this is certainly the game to get.
