Moment of Silence – Review

Just a few minutes in, I was absolutely sure that Moment of Silence was a European game. It opens with a stunning cutscene that depicts a group of stormtroopers raiding a journalist's apartment and kidnapping him while his family looks on in horror. How does the main character react to this? Run out into the hallway, guns blazing? Climb out the window and work his way down a series of drainpipes and trellises to steal the SWAT team van so he can infiltrate their base? No, he watches the scene through a peep-hole and then, when the commotion has died down, he goes into the hallway and retrieves a teddy bear tossed aside during the struggle, then returns it to the crying child of the kidnapped reporter. So, yeah, right as the game begins, I'm fairly sure no North American developer was responsible for this.
