Story

The player assumes the role of Anya Romanov, an acrobatic, high-tech professional thief. Her mission is to infiltrate a number of high-security locations and steal items therein without being caught by guards. She is assisted by the computer expert Louie, who communicates with her through an earpiece.

Gameplay

Anya has several hi-tech gadgets to assist her, including night vision goggles, lockpicks, and a dart gun. Notably, Anya has no lethal arms; she cannot kill any of the guards she encounters, only knock them unconscious for a brief time.

IGN said in their review "it's clear that the developers have played Splinter Cell and Metal Gear Solid games, but they haven't learned how to make it all that interesting."[2] The GameSpot review also mentioned "Prince of Persia-inspired feats".[3]

Reception

While Stolen received little press coverage, that which it did receive was mostly negative.

IGN called the game's action "incredibly uninspired" and said the PlayStation 2 version had "low framerates and lots of aliasing all over the place", concluding that "It's a game like this that truly makes one appreciate all the other stealth games on the market."[2] GameSpot said "The only difficult part about Stolen is finding the patience to actually remain hidden when it's easier to just charge through the levels."[3]
