Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series have been widely known for providing highly engaging and exciting stealth based 3 rd person shooter experiences. Splinter Cell: Chaos theory which was originally released on Xbox, PS2, and Windows is the 3 rd game in the franchise and is one of the most critically acclaimed games in the series.
Excerpt: The reviews are in for Splinter Cell Chaos Theory for the DS. The general consensus is that the game is decent, but not exceptional. The main concerns seem to be the touchy control and framerate.

Excerpt: Chaos Theory - any self respecting Splinter Cell fan will tell you - is the best entry in Tom Clancy's stealth action series.

Of the original trilogy, then, this was the perfect candidate for a three-dimensional port.
Excerpt: We've seen the Tom Clancy series on just about every gaming platform in existence, from mobile phones to home consoles and even the Mac and now our favourite protagonist and hero, Sam Fisher returns and makes his first debut on the Nintendo 3DS. Even though most gamers have probably played this title before, it is a little different on the Nintendo 3DS due to its 3D technology that actually adds a whole new depth to the gameplay.
Summary: : Splinter Cell 3D is a solid, if unremarkable, port of a great game for a console that really would have been better off with a brand new product instead of the limited, and somewhat bland, product it received. The story is still as good as it ever was, the graphics are acceptable and work well enough, the 3D effects are generally a good time all in all, and the audio is quite solid and well executed.
