I like it too

im wondering though if it should be a class specific ability, or maybe we
just have some missions where you have this ability, or maybe a specific
weapon you can equip to make this happen? (although you did say the thing
about the weapon so maybe if you had a sword it wouldnt be worth it).

I'm just wondering if thats going to make the game play be that for every
fight you are gonna try and get behind the enemy before attacking.

Actually... maybe for a lot of enemies, they are aware of you so you cant
sneak up on em, but some enemies you can, like if you sneak up on a gaurd
from behind.  If it wasnt a permanent thing i think i'd be more of a fan,
but it is a neat idea.

My 2 cents anyhow :P
