From the manufacturer
It is the height of the Cold War, a time of global uncertainty and civil unrest. You are Agent Alekhine, a highly skilled Russian assassin, driven by a moral compass that leads you headfirst into a covert operation unsanctioned by the country you previously served.
Working alongside American CIA agents, your mission is clear - though how you accomplish it is anything but - as the tension of a nuclear standoff grows with each passing minute. Enemies and allies blur; truth is as nebulous as your identity. In a world where one wrong move could be the end of you, navigating a new direction comes at a price.
Traverse 11 Open Game Levels
Play through open environments with non-linear missions within intriguing U.S., European, and Cuban locations. Explore multiple routes, hidden rooms, and numerous methods to execute assignments. Move freely within your surroundings. Tackle objectives in any order you choose.

As the tension of a nuclear standoff grows with each passing minute, the fate of America - and quite possibly the world - lies within your hands.

PLOT: You play an agent of a couple intelligence organizations, and you travel to exotic locations to execute folks, steal documents, foil plans, otherwise cause havoc. Storyline is really pretty cool and the locales are varied and very detailed.
GAMEPLAY: Wow, am I person or a truck? Controlling your guy is like driving an elephant in Far Cry 4. Holy crap. He moves VERY slowly and very tank-like. Also, tactics are weak here. Example, taking cover, calling someone over, usually you get a prompt to kill / knockout. There are no corner kills here, folks. Totally sucks. The AI varies from incredibly smart to flat out dumb. I finally turned off a generator right in front of a guy. Other times, they won’t let me in (despite the fact Im wearing the same uniform as they are). And to kill someone, you have to ready yourself EVERYTIME. The animations tho are pretty cool, like when you knock someone out, or fisticuffs. But takes an hour to draw weapons
GRAPHICS: Look really smooth and post processing effects were nice but was the guy who coded the lighting photosensitive? Hello! OMG, the difference between light and dark is jarring. It’s a bright a** sunny day but I step in the shade, and all of a sudden you cant see squat. WTF? Had to turn my TV up just to see a wall…which is right next to a lamp 2 feet away to figure out “Oh ,that’s why I cant go that way…there is a friggin wall there) The levels are designed and detailed very nice.
AUDIO: The voice actors are convincing, but I don’t know if its them, their direction, or the equipment they used to record themselves. Just lacks authenticity. They cast them completely wrong. The Russian agent sounds pretty good, but the CIA agent sounds like a leader at an Eagle Scout meeting teaching kids how to tie their shoe. You are supposed to be a killer for cryin out loud. Im not saying sound like Mad Max, but have some confidence and lethality in your voice. Music and ambiance is pretty cool, and guns are average.
OVERALL: I stopped playing it. Ill pick it back up again Im sure but for now, yeah. I thought this would tide me over till Hitman comes out but no way. Like I said, Death to spies 1 and 2 had horrible flaws but I still LOVED those games. So I expected this game to suck at times but still be fun. It just wasn’t. You watch the gameplay trailer and think how awesome it is. There’s a reason why you see short snippets. This is bargain bin price for sure. It’s an insult for them to charge FULL AAA title price. You can tell they put their heart and soul in this game and they busted their butts, but that studio just doesn’t have the talent to pull off a game of this magnitude. Stick with what you know. If the original DEVs did this game, it would be like the rest in the series; major flaws but fun. This is just plain painful. I feel like not only did they take my money during this sale, but they stapled the receipt to my balls.
The game sets out to be a stealth assassination game, with objective-based levels and having do with a limited amount of tools available to execute a mission. While in theory it is a great concept, the game's execution is incredibly poor. The AI is incredibly bad, like if it had absolutely no work put into it, say if you happen to get detected it is enough to quickly walk away or even close door in their face for the AI to stop chasing you or even looking for you. This is definitely not what a stealth game should be, and the AI presents no challenge whatsoever and is utterly bad.
The controls are another huge issue with the game, they are so clunky and unresponsive that it is basically impossible to play the game normally. Trying to accomplish anything in the game is made worse, as the controls are so bad the game can't be played normally. The physics are wonky as well, and assassinations can easily be failed because of the clumsiness of the controls. Animations are stiff and the response times of the controls are really slow. The graphics are bad too, the game looks like it's been made on PS2, and even this is an overstatement as some of PS2 games look incredible compared to this.
The levels in the game are large and while this creates an illusion of exploration, it is again hindered. These levels are absolutely empty, there are barely any npc characters or any collectibles to find, which hinders exploration useless. The story is poor as well. full of bland characters and dull static cutscenes as well as text-based cutscenes. While the Cold War setting seems to be interesting and somewhat unique, you wouldn't care for the story a single time.
On top of all the negatives I talked about, the game is absolutely filled with bugs and glitches. I got stuck in walls, fell through a level and character animations are wonky, which caused a lot of fails on the way. The game doesn't have anything positive to it at all.
Overall, Alekhine's Gun is a very poorly executed game that essentially fails in every respect of being a decent stealth action game. It is full of bad design decisions, clumsy controls and glitches. Do not let advertising fool you, this game is not worth any of your money. It is much better to spend those required $60 on something better. I would recommend to stay away from this game completely.
