Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Box art A Splinter Cell,one of the chosen who has the right to murder, spy, and do whatever it takes to keep the country safe. In this game you are a Splinter Cell, and you have the Fifth Freedom.
Well this game hasnt really caught my eye up until the last couple of weeks. It looked like a blow off on Metal Gear Solid, but as I looked into the game more there was a thick line of differences. So I decided to rent this game and give it a try, well I tried it and was absolutly amazed. Even if the gameplay had sucked (which it doesnt) I would have still gotten the game for the gadgets and the graphics.
Splinter Cell exceeds in the 3 G's (Graphics, Gameplay, Gadgets) and you can easily tell how much work Ubisoft has put into this game. There are very few minor problems, if any that can easily be over looked. This game has opened the doors of stealth to me and I will make sure to get MGS:S for christmas, because I love stealth too much now. So I suggest you get this game, stealth fan or not because there is no way you can possibly be disappointed.

WOW, now this is where the game truly shimmers with gleem. There are many ways of solving objectives, whether it be killing the gaurd or sneaking past him either way you get there. This adds a level of excitment to the game as does the gadgets. There are many gadgets to help you complete levels and they are really fun to use to. The only problem I have found is being stealth all the time. You only get about 30 bullets in your gun and after that your screwed. So the gun has to be your last resort. I found a problem with this because I am a true rn and kill type of person. But this game has opened new doors to me and quite frankly I like stealth the best now. Not that it can be used in games like unreal championship but it is still a heck of alot of fun.
One of the best features in this game is the simple, interact options. You can interact with anything to get awnsers, like people to get pass codes, or cans to throw at your enemies.

So all I can say to sum this up is you have to experience this game to truly feel its greatness.

The best graphics in any game ever belongs to.....SPLINTER CELL!!!
Seriously the graphics are great. The volumetric fog and smoke is done in great detail. I am also very impressed with the lighting effects in this game, though sometimes they focused too much on it but it is very very well done. The only complaint in this section is at times, Sam's goggles look really pixelated but otherwise it looks very nice. The character modles are great, and look as realistic as can be. There mouths actually move to the words, and they graphics are JUST PLAIN AWSOME!!!

Does it get any better? YES!
The soundtrack, I must say is awsome. Im not a fan of the crystal meth (the band) but their music really fits the game, especially in the opening CG. The music fits the game perfectly. The background music and sounds are also very well done. I love the sound of the silenced pistol, it sound very realistic. While walking through different textures different sounds will come of it, which at times affects if your going to get caught or not. Very very cool. The sound is awsome, nothing wrong in this category!

A little more levels could have helped but since you are giving us hopefully FREE downloads then everything is ok!!! Ubisoft, I LOVE YOU!!!!

Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 10.0 / 10
Visuals: 10.0 / 10
Sound: 10.0 / 10
