Nice idea an invisible protagnist could make a good game if done right, to be honest in the first MGS I did this a lot with the stealth camo, just make the guy follow you for ages around the box xD Huh! What was that noise? Hmmm!

Also a comment about that Crysis 2 mechanic. I found it stupid as hell that the guy could run and jump in stealth but to melee a guy you have to uncloak and then recloak...defeats the point about stealth kill no?
