SOF having such realistic looks right down to your footprints
left after exiting snow or water, it stands to reason that the
game must also follow the realism trend and follow it does.
In SOF, people's heads, arms, legs and even 'nether regions'
can be blown clean off in all their bloody glory and we mean

also seems to know when a hostile is killed despite me making
no noise what so ever. For example, on one of the snow levels
I crept up behind a guard and knifed him, moments later I was
ambushed by half a dozen who seemed to know EXACTLY where I
