Stealthy does it
The original Death to Spies is a cracking bit of stealth/action gaming that plays out a little like Hitman but set in WWII instead. This sequel lives up to the standards of its predecessor and is only really let down by the bugs which come with being an ambitious title made on a low budget. The game finds you in control of a Soviet captain in the Russian counterintelligence group known as SMERSH and as things progress, you find yourself getting sent on increasingly difficult missions that send you deep in enemy territory. This isn't a full-on shooter, but is more akin to Metal Gear Solid, in that you'll need to use stealth to infiltrate bases, capture agents, assassinate leaders and all sorts of other James Bond-style shenanigans. You have access to a range of vehicles and weapons and there is a generally open-ended feel to the game so you can approach any mission in pretty much any way you fancy. It's this creativity towards mission design which is one of the game's biggest selling points and you do genuinely feel like a real secret agent with an entire playing field at your disposal. The missions too are varied and interesting for the most part, requiring different skills to complete and which are pretty challenging. The controls are solid and intuitive, making navigating the world a breeze. The visuals are surprisingly decent for such a title, with some very atmospheric environments to explore and some good character models to enjoy. The only real problem is the amount of bugs but if you can get past this, you're in for a good time.
