I'm surprised that there's no thread for this game. Also, to those who have played this game and don't feel like it is a shooter please suggest a better sub-forum and/or let a mod know. The only other place I can think of for this thread is Action/Adventure and I really don't think this game is very actiony (that's a word now).
Okay, I caved in and got this game because AC3 left me sorely wanting in the stealth department and I have to say boy does this game deliver on stealth. I actually found myself at one point saying "Ughh, enough stealth! I just wanna blow stuff away!", probably from all the Borderlands 2 I've been playing. The only thing I wish this game had was tapping on walls to lure guards similar to MGS4 (which can be faked by sprinting at the wall of your choosing as long as you don't mind standing up). I can finally say I have found a stealth game that rewards thinking outside the box and really has game mechanics that make sense for the world you're in.
