I don’t know how a game like this was made but I got to hand it to them. Barely any guns and you do parkour all around a city trying not to get killed. There is a little bit of guns but the game rewards you for not killing anyone with guns. You are supposed to knock out enemies not kill them. Great story! Language is frequent though.... The S word is used frequently as well as the D word, the H word. But really, it is a great game!
