Metrocide Gameplay Review

I'm playing Metrocide, a top-down arcade stealth shooter by Flat Earth Games.

The goal: earn enough money by completing assassination missions to earn a ticket out of town. The game features permadeath and the inability to save your progress. The missions are very repetitive, but more tactical options open up as more weapons and items are purchased from vending machines. Numerous cops, civilians, cameras, vigilantes, and drones roam the streets, so executing the target must be done carefully. Bodies in conspicuous locations can be moved to open sewers or rivers, and the cop level can be lowered with a monetary investment. The difficulty of Metrocide is very high, but solid, if repetitive, stealth gameplay is contained herein.
