I am working my way through the campaign on this and very much enjoying it. IMO the game is a lot more fun with the silenced sniper rifle and silenced pistol. The silenced sniper in particular gives up a lot of power and zoom, and adds more drop to the bullets, but the payback is you can actually do the silent assassin routine without all the baddies getting into a mad flappy panic all the time. (They still go into yellow ALERT and SEARCHING status if they see their friends get killed, but they can't lock in on where the bullets are coming from.)

The silent pistol is brilliant, I love sneaking up on baddies (especially the radio operators) and putting a bullet into the back of their skull at close range, whilst their friends around the corner remain blissfully unaware.

In a way I guess it's a bit cheesy but TBH it just streamlines the way I was playing anyway, as it's dead easy to just run to some nearby cover when you get COVER BLOWN in your current location, and then wait for them all to chill the fuck out.

Splendid game, if you can get it for cheaps there's no reason no give it a try IMO.

It's definitely better with silenced bullets, but it's massively easier - which is why the game rations the silenced ammo hard.

You know that you can also do the same by timing your shots at the same time as church bells, or sabotaging generators so they make banging noises and mask your shots?

Yes I was doing that for the first few levels, before I bought the silent guns DLC. (And then using silent ammo if there no noise mask available.)

In essence I see the silent guns as streamlining what I was doing before, I wouldn't even say it makes the game 'easier' as such, since it's fairly trivial to just run away from a COVER BLOWN status and hide for a minute or two until everything goes back to normal.

Basically it just 'feels' better to play with silenced guns, as I like the idea of sneaking around the levels as a silent assassin.

True, it just means less time spent waiting for them to forget you exist.

I also purchased this recently and I am on the last level. I have been playing at second to top difficulty which has made it a struggle at times but still very enjoyable.

I do tend to overuse my MP40 machine gun though which I suppose is not in the spirit of the game but I have become quite deadly with it.

Heh, sometimes I like to deliberately get a cover blown, hunker down in a nearby room with one entrance behind cover, and then just machine gun the Nazi swines to death as they run into the room one after another. They all seem strangely unconcerned with how their friends who ran in before them are getting on.

'I'm sure Helmut, Gerhard and Kurt have killed the Allied infiltrator by now, I'll just pop my head around the door to check.'

PlayStation needs a way to get at pictures that doesn't involve going via Facebook.

Don't listen to them Craster! I thought it was very retro.

It's all about the Pixel art!

I expect Nintendo will approach you in the near future.
