Take out the Nazis (but quietly!) in this new stealth-action game
By Paul Semel, Special to Metromix
Normally, when you take on the Nazis in a World War II game, it’s all guns a-blazin' in a first-person shooter. But in "The Saboteur"—a third-person stealth action game from Pandemic Studios that EA with publish on the 360, PS3, and PC on December 8—fighting the German army is going to take a bit of patience.
Playing as an associate of the French resistance, you have to undermine the Germans during their occupation of Paris by using the kind of distraction techniques and quiet attacks you’ve learned from playing such games as "Splinter Cell" and "Metal Gear Solid."
But there’s more to this game than just sneaking up behind Nazis, as you can see from the following gallery of screenshots.
