I'm really enjoying Counterspy, I think it's got a lot going for it. It is over quite quickly, but I keep going back. Need that stealth trophy. As well as all the formula and weapon blueprints.

Have you played through on the hard difficulty? It's been kicking my butt.

This is one of the best games Ive played this year. Hands down. I would welcome more of it.

This game has been my surprise hit of the year. The early previews were very luke warm, but it turned out amazing.

I think the people who are writing this one off aren't looking at it deep enough. It's not a "three hours and done" game. There's so much more than that. I don't also get the complaint I see a lot about how people don't know where the upcoming guards are. I've never had a problem with that.

I was also surprised by how funny the game is. It is constantly making me laugh out loud. It's hilarious.

The humor is something that doesn't get enough mentions. CounterSpy is hilarious.

My favorite moment so far is when I took a shot at a red canister and blew the guard standing next to it 50 feet up in the air. Then, somehow, his dead body got stuck in the rafters and he was just dangling from the ceiling from one leg. I laughed so hard I nearly cried.
