There are a few genres that never seem to get old; World War II games, Sports titles, and the omnipresent "RPG" line. And then there are the lower genres which still stick around - including the genre in which the Splinter Cell series is most notable, the spy game.

Dreamcatcher hands us one of the more interesting spy games I've seen to date - interesting because its protagonist isn't a warrior at all, but rather a journalist. In many ways, it'd almost have been nice if the game didn't fall back into various cliche actions, because some of the journalist-type activities in the game are quite fun.

Oh, and it's hard as hell, too.
