I see what you mean, but it still looks to be good. I still need to finish the first one mind. I'll add it to my already ridiculous backlog.
Dishonored is making me genuinely excited, I don't care if the naysayers say nay! As a resident of these British Isles, the lack of a "u" bugs me though. Wonder if they'll rename it for the European release.
I've never played any of the Ghost Recon games(except for the demo of the first one) but that Future Soldier footage looks fantastic.
Played the Sniper Elite 2 demo the other day. Fun. Only stealthed a small part of it tho. One stealth-kill and a couple with the silenced pistol. Not sure if you can stealth the entire mission.

I have to admit to being interested in how that scripted rail cart sequence could be ghosted.
A smart developer will cater to both styles of gameplay, which I am sure they have done.
I'll try to make sure I re-play (and complete this time) Metro 2033 this year some time.
Eurogamer reviews are influenced by how big of a bribe that they receive from publishers.
I quite liked the demo, but it's flawed no doubt about it. It has that one thing I hate - insta-know. It's one thing I hate about Deus Ex (the original). You snipe someone and everyone else then knows exactly where you are. Ridiculous.
It sounds like it has all of the problems the original game did.
Yeah, there's an entire thread on that game.
Didn't find a dedicated thread for this, so I'll just post here. While not really a stealth game, The Saboteur is pretty good. I got it way back when it first came out but didn't get through a lot, just the first couple of missions maybe. I just got back into it, when I was looking to clear space of the PC. I decided to give it another try and got sucked in. Very well done game. I like the aesthetic, and it's a good mix of GTA, Assassin's Creed, and Hitman. The stealth element can be fun, but it often becomes a shootout afterwards. I'm probably about halfway through, and I'm loving it.
I wish The Saboteur was released over at GOG or Steam, dang it...
Weeeeeelll, it's on Origin.
I hate how EA's FAQ still says you can activate retail copies on Origin, but it doesn't actually work.
It's a shame Pandemic went under. It's a great game, but it could really use a patch to fix the problems with widescreen.
Mark of the Ninja, by Shank-devs Klei Entertainment is looking pretty good. Here's a Giantbomb QuickLook of it. It's an XBox Live title for now but just like Shank I'm guessing there's a good chance it'll make it's way to PC eventually. Gameplay-wise it looks like it's taking a lot of it's cues from the stealth in the Batman games. Also I can't help but be reminded of an old C64 game called Saboteur 2.
This looks incredible:
