It has an asinine story that’s barely comprehensible throughout the two hours or so of the game. And despite all this I couldn’t put it down.
Silent Ops moves at a quick pace, changes up the few tricks that it has frequently enough to keep things interesting, and as opposed to a lot of other stealth games, it actually succeeds at making you feel like a super spy as you fire your silenced pistol and snap the necks of dozen of minions.
Gameloft asks for a lot of money in return for their high production values, but there are also a lot of other more entertaining games on the App Store for a fraction of the cost.
Another caveat is that while the game does run on an iPhone, I would not recommend that anyone with adult hands play it on anything but the iPad. There is too much going on, both visually and with the controls to cram it on to the iPhone’s screen.
