Return from Darkness is another stealth-action hybrid game. This essentially means players will alternate between playing through sequences where they must sneak around without being detected and areas where they simply must unleash their formidable killing skills on everything in sight. It's not something gamers haven't seen before and unfortunately, seen done better.
