This game is overall very good.
It is very different from your average WWII game which there's a lot of shooting. This game involves careful planning and stealth. You will find yourself dead very quickly if you start shooting. I will discuss this game under these heading:
LEVELS: There are 10 levels in total. Most of them take at least 1 hour to complete. The levels include; a German concentration camp, a British hotel, an American military base and a German military school. A detailed tutorial mission can be done at the start of the game.
DISGUISES: Disguises are an important element of this game. Most levels you start off in Soviet military camouflage clothes. German soldiers will immediately start shooting at you until you get a disguise. There are different disguises available. A German soldier is the most basic disguise. Most German soldiers will not bother you but higher ranks may see through your disguise. Some levels require you to get officer's uniforms, staff's clothes (e.g. a chef) or a worker's clothes.
WEAPONS: Before you start each level you can fully customise your equipment. You can carry a shoulder, side and a knife weapon. Main weapons include MP40s, MP44s and Stens. Many pistols are also available. The silenced pistol is he most useful. Knifes can be carried - they can be used at close range or thrown. For silent kills you are equipped with a choke cord and chloroform. You can also punch people, although this is nosier.
VEHICLES: Vehicles can be driven in some missions. Trucks, motorbikes and cars can be driven.
UI: You can swap between a main map and a mini-map. You can use the + and - keys to zoom in and out. The AI are shown as green, yellow, red and grey icons; green meaning no suspicion of you, yellow - vary (don't stay around these guys too long!), red - alert, usually if they see you they will raise the alarm and grey - civilians. A suspicion meter appears at the top of the screen when guards are suspicious of you. If this fills the alarm will be raised.
AI: There are many different types/appearances of AI people, though they aren't great. Once you start shooting they tend to run around crazily until they compose themselves. Mostly they're OK though.
Sound: The sound is good in this game. German music can be heard coming from gramophones and the environmental sound are good. The AI are pretty wordless. This is improved in the sequel Moment of Truth (they say Heil Hitler
to you if you're dressed as an officer!)
OTHER: You can pick locks, spy through keyholes, sabotage functions to distract attention away and more.
This is a great game I recommend you buy it (wait for a sale somewhere - and get the Gold Edition, it works out cheaper). If you like a game with lots of pace and action this may not be the game for you.
