In my mind stealth-type games are tough to truly get right but when they come together the right way they offer up a very satisfying mix of strategy, tension, and even some action. War of Stealth may aspire to greatness but in all honesty it feels a bit unfinished in its current state. Certainly a variety of bad translations don’t help it get an air of polish, but that could perhaps be discounted if the action were compelling. The thing is, at best it feels like an effort from a few generations ago, even if that. Animations can be dodgy (though the elastic nature of people you’re trying to pull at times can lead to unintentional laughs), the action is a bit too stale and one note, and just mechanically there’s an unrefined quality to most everything. In a pinch perhaps you could give it a try but if you’re a fan of the genre aside from execution issues this simply brings nothing of note to the table.
