The Most Mysterious Secret Service Agency of WWII.
This is a third-person stealth-action game describing the activities of the SMERSH, the most mysterious secret service agency of World War II.Read full description
Moment of Truth is more or less just "more of the same" of what the original offered. The graphics have some nice improvements, though things do look a little...muddier. The AI feels much better as well, but some of the biggest let downs of the first game don't seem to have been addressed. Firstly, there's the poor shooting mechanics. There are new weapons, but the shooting feels exactly the same as the first game, in that it's awful for anything besides a quick pop in the head on an unsuspecting guard. Obviously a stealth game shouldn't focus too much on the shooting, but you have to admit that some of the best fun in stealth games is messing around with all the weapons you never used while you were stealthing it up. In Moment of Truth, you never really want to use guns more than you have to... Second, there's the story: it's still not especially interesting, and like the previous game, it's further hampered by the poor voice acting (which i guess is forgiveable, seeing as it's not an English game). Third, the game definitely feels shorter. Though the missions feel a lot more varied and interesting (which is a great improvement), the game itself seems to last about half as long as the original, which is a bit of a shame. Lastly, for anyone new to the Death to Spies series, this one doesn't actually feature a tutorial. The original had one, and it was quite a nicely crafted one, but this game just dumps you off into a mission instead; and since it's a bit of a complex game, this makes things pretty hard to follow for anyone who hasn't played the original. Since it's cheap, it should be a no-brainer to pick it up if you enjoyed the original. If you've never played the original, be warned at the lack of tutorial.
