It wasn't a 10/10 game for myself. I thought it was a fantastic game, but there were far too many game play contrivances to look past.
The game play is solid but it's far from best in class when it comes to shooting and stealth mechanics. The story, presentation, character development, acting and music are exceptionally well done and exceed the actual game play, and this is something I think all reviewers were caught up and let influence their review scores. I think Gamespot 8.0 score was too low, but the 10's felt far too lenient in their criticism of the actual game mechanics.
I don't care about the altitude, I just want another drink.
