To give an overall assessment to this product, we do not hide the difficulties of assessment. The perplexity of being before a game with such graphics, in 2008, could drop any enthusiasm. Death to Spies you save when you decide to go beyond the aesthetic aspect to analyze, even from a psychological point of view, a title which is reserved only for the few, because it requires a dose of patience out there. In the face of a stealth component so marked, it is advisable to purchase only to genre purists, who here will find what they have been looking for. If you want a good game of infiltration, but not so challenging, might better opt for the Splinter Cell franchise that is still the undisputed benchmark for all fans.

You will die.... alot, but you will have a hell of a good time doing it. Very hardcore game that feels like it could have inspired many of the shooters/stealth games we know today.

This Game though. It's ultimately hard, considering that i haven't finished or worse case scenario is to not finish the training session. I got ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off, i always get spotted everytime.
I love this game, good thing is i bought this on sale. :steamhappy:

Also in the cannibal combat, the thing that makes it harder is the frags getting thrown at you, it instantly kills you. No matter what, you'll die from the frag, tip is, find the frag thrower and shoot him first before he even pull the pin out of the frag. And don't miss..

I'll rate it 10/11

This is an attempt to remake Hitman but set in ww2. You play the role of a kgb officer who needs to use stealth to take out his targets. You can poison them, blow them up, choke them with a cord etc... Most of the time you will go through enemy bases and change outfits so you do not raise suspicion. However the UI and controls are terrible and the game is filled with bugs where you cannot complete objectives. Don't bother 5/10
