The graphics are stunning as always, its up there with
Gran Turismo 4 and Metal Gear Solid 3 in lookings. So you will
not be let down by that. Shadows and Lighting effects are superb.
Water, rain, reflection every thing looks as real as ever. Every
little detail is spot on and the characters are very good and
As this is an stealth game, there's not much variant in music.
Say that its has cool and calm music that fits in perfect. Every
little sound can be herd clear from rain drops, walking on metal,
faulty lights and much more. The voice acting of cut-scenes and
in-game are excellent.
Controls have been improved from what was very good,
even with new moves added its still easy to pick up and play.
With L1 or R1 used for non lethal or lethal moves can just be
pressed at a tap of the button when close. L3 can be pressed when
you have the gun out to switch stanch which comes in very handy.
First of all the stealth bar works right this time as
before when it said that you were hide, enemies still could see
you with in a meter or 2. Gameplay is much more fun now that sam
has a knife, he is more capable of fight where as before you had
2 hit enemies with you gun a few times to take them down. There's
also more positions you can do silent kills from like from the
front or behind plus when in water you can grab enemies and drown
them. Necksnaps can also be done when hanging from pipes too.
As well as all previously gadgets he has, there's some more, one
of which you use most is a jamming gadget that is part of your
pistol. This can be used to turn off anything electrical like
lights, computers, cameras and many more. Also new is the save
that can be done at anytime as before when killed you had to start
at begging or a long away checkpoint. With lots more moves and
actions to do chaos theory feels more like a real sequel unlike
no2 that was manly like the first with not much more added.
Replay Value is much better than before now that you
can choose equipment at each mission and there's a rating for
each each mission too. there's no unlockables at all but with
a improved online play and bigger maps there more fun to be had.
For those that don't have online play can team up with a friend
at home in co-op play, where there are short but loads of mission
2 do, which involves more co-op action movements like extra high
climb, throughin over gaps, rope descending and much more.
