Product: 21 Days
Genre: Action, Line- drawing
If being stealthy in real life were anything like it is in video games, only spectacularly short-sighted people would be employed in the guarding-things industry. A compulsion for treading the same path over and over would be required too.
Stealth games are all about smoke and mirrors, giving us the illusion of being silent ninjas when all we're really doing is outmanoeuvring idiots. What developers need to do is hide this fact from us.
Unfortunately, 21 Days doesn't quite manage it.
Hide and no seek
The game mainly takes place in a prison, where your character has been thrown after a bank job gone wrong. Once inside you befriend a flamboyant mustachioed fellow who has a plan to get out, but inevitably he needs your help.
There are a few problems with 21 Days, but if you can get past them, you'll find a decent, if frustrating, stealth game
