I’ve never liked stealth games. That results partially from an inability to co-ordinate myself in a manner befitting a one legged man with an inner-ear affliction, let alone a special operations guy, but also because I’ve generally found them tedious and unforgiving to the extreme. It’s a sad state of affairs where you can’t even run around gunning down every guard you see without someone raising a fuss!
Of course, I kid. No, my trouble mainly arose from Splinter Cell and Metal Gear Solid on the occasions I deigned to boot them up. The former was terribly difficult and the latter interminably dull, neither of which are positive things for a game to be called – and I think I’ve come up with the solution. Make jobs matter less. In those games, you’re a super soldier out to save the world. In Monaco, you’re some dudes who rob banks – and that’s much better.
