I shall, but it's similiar enough to make pretty good guesses
(actually it was fun to figure out that "nuttig" is "useful" in Dutch, in German it's something different xD).

So since my last post I played through the game and it was great. My next play-through going to play it on its hardest and no help from the AI. It took me around 8 hours to complete it. It was nice to play a thief game again.

I finished the game in 13h now. I played on hard and tried being a silent assassin who kills only his targets and tries to avoid everything else.
Next I try for the Clean Hands achievement.
And if I play for a third time I will go on a all killing spree.

Oh.

I blinked everywhere.

Probably why. XD

Related: I happened to find on YouTube a playthrough of Skyfall's first mission. Apparently, the developers thought enough about stealth gameplay that you have to worry about whether enemies can hear you as well as see you, and have to be careful about just where you take one down... but somehow, didn't see fit to let the player move bodies to better hiding places. To be fair, Splinter Cell: Conviction is guilty of this as well, but at least there's a workaround-of-sorts there.

I'm... not sure what you mean, because you can pick up bodies and move them to better hiding places.

Finished this just now and it was pretty awesome, defiantly a worthy purchase.

Spoiler for ending and stuff:


Also I didn't seem to get the 4 separate achievements relating to not being seen or not killing anyone which was a little disappointing since I played though it pretty meticulously =/

Correct. I was watching some playthroughs thereof on YouTube, and that was just one thing that didn't do the game any favors. It would be interesting to see how the devs rationalized this omission.

Curious. I checked out Gamespot's ghost playthrough; one thing they point out is that unconscious guards falling to their death (i.e. sliding off a roof) or getting devoured by rat packs do count as kills - something like that might have happened without your being aware of it.

Naa I've checked the mission stats via the missions menu and they all have "don't kill anyone" and "Ghost (not spotted)" boxes ticked. I didn't even kill any of the targets I dispatched them all with other means and I'm not even sure I got the achievement for that also =s

Just finished, took about nearly 20 hours. I begin with careful not to kill anyone, but once I found out Havlock and co betrayed me, I went into a killing frenzy and wasted everyone in the pub. The proceed to clean house on the Island. All those ammo I saved up throughout the game finally put into good use

Chain blink+ knife in the face = Tallboy kill X 4. Really love the in-your-face animation.

I didn't kill any of the bosses except for Mr. Campbell, since I think rightfully deserve it. Plus, reading the spoiler means if he lives he become a weeper. Unacceptable.

Only thing I wish is this game had more targets...oh well.

Alright, I finally sat down and finished my Clean Hands run.

I spent most of the time worring if I kept unconscious people somewhere safe enough, so they won't get eaten by rats.
