Great game but definitely is not a 9.5 or even 9/10 game. Too many flaws for it to be.


dont get me wrong, the game is still great. Excellent and really enjoyable stealth mechanics and infiltrating areas and planning your strategy, but here is where the game falls short.


  • incredibly empty open world. Nothing to do outside of the 'bases' except plant gathering and capturing animals.
  • repetitive side missions. Lots of padding. Doing the 'capture the highly skilled soldier' and all those other ones over and over gets boring
  • slow start. Afghan missions really aren't that great. Game starts getting great last mission before Africa and then Africa itself was great. But then comes Part 2 oh boy that a mess.
  • revisiting the same areas over and over for missions. Kind of gets bland and less challenging, as you will already know the best approach for that area, as you have visited it already for the upteenth time.

The stealth gameplay is excellent and fun, but is impacted negatively when repeatedly revisiting same areas over and over and also the other points above.

Overall 8.5/10

should have stayed linear with more concentration given on varied areas and not revisiting the same area over and over.
