Do you want to play an old-school FPS? Get Hard Reset.
Do you want to play Deus Ex-like? Get Alpha Protocol.
Even for an old game Project Snowblind is just plain bad. It often tries to play itself up as a hybrid of run-and-gun but hey you could totall stealth and kind of hack stuff (with your auto-hack gun thing) but the only really viable route is the former and it's awful at that too. There's maybe one level where you can kind of sneak, for a little while at least because there's lots of knee high walls to crouch behind but you don't have any silenced weapons and the guard patrols aren't designed to allow for that type of gameplay. You aggro one, you've aggro'd every enemy on that floor or building. I managed to hack a giant robot once which was fun but I could only do that because it was powered down, I never saw another one like that after.
You just end up playing this ♥♥♥♥ty hybrid of taking cover until you get bored, run forward and mow everyone down hoping there's a health pick-up through the next door. Except robots and security make that hard, sometimes they're nice enough to put those panels before they appear but often they don't and of course you can't really sneak to them either. It's a cluster♥♥♥♥.
The level I played before finally unistalling it, had me dealing with running through wave after wave of enemies. Like that's it, I would make my way through the level and there'd be at least five guys around every corner. Couldn't sneak because everyone would aggro and apparently there's no locational damage either making ammo a pain in the ♥♥♥ to deal with.
Just an awful, awful, awful game. Never buy this, ever.
