Summary: Luckily I own a PC, not just a Gamecube, as when this came through the post, it was the PC version of the game, not the Gamecube version which arrived. Despite this, Splinter Cell is a fantastic game and I would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: I was in two minds as to whether to buy this game or not after reading other reviews across the internet stating how difficult and frustrating it is due to the need to be so stealthy. Then once I'd decided to take the plunge I had to debate between this one and the other two in the series - Pandora and Chaos Theory. I thought it best to start at the beginning so chose this one.
Summary: This game simply doesnt work for many people:It is very difficult to get into it and the pace of the game is so slow and dull.It is also very hard and frustrating and annoying to progress.It is one of those games,which appeal to a certain section of gamers,who like stealth-based games but if you are a normal and casual gamer then you need to avoid it!!!!
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell review (Gamecube version)

Summary: One of the most popular, most successful, and best looking games for Microsoft's Xbox is now on the GameCube, and in some respects it's better than the original. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is a stealth-driven action adventure that sends you, as operative Sam Fisher, around the globe on numerous highly secretive and very dangerous assignments. It all goes down like something straight out of a Hollywood action thriller, complete with plenty of big-budget production values.
Summary: Splinter Cell is well known for its captivating storyline, impressive graphics, clever level designs and in my opinion, being the best stealth game ever since metal gear solid. In this first installment, the game has you climbing poles, absailing down the sides of buildings and knocking out enemies in a number of different ways. You're Sam Fisher. The American government's spy. Your work is completely secret. No one except for the government knows you exist.
Summary: Splinter Cell is a very good game. From the presentation and story through to the graphics and the all important gameplay it's a winner. It does become a little unfair in terms of save points and difficulty during the late stages, but it's worth the perseverence. Recommended for fans of stealth/combat/shoot em ups and adventure games in general.
Summary: This maybe passed by as just another stealth game, and on the surface it is, but delve deeper and theres a good story line. Graphics Not to bad, the fire effects are good as are the lighting effects. The characters are well put together and react well to situations. Sound DPL2 supported with atmospheric music and sound effects that are good and clear.. Gameplay A decent story that will keep you gripped throughout. Loads of moves to do and a variety of weapons.
Summary: This game intrigued me from the start, as an older gamer I relish the chance to get my hands on a game with a meatier storyline and more adult themes and here splinter cell delivers. The voice acting is solid and the script is excellent even managing to throw in some genuinly amusing moments into the Tom Clancy plot line. As an overall gaming experience however it does have its drawbacks and ultimatly will not appeal to everyone.
Summary: This game is a tense thrilling game of skill and fun. It is tactical and sometimes annoying but getting there in the end is always such a sense of acheivement. You will need to think hard and look after your bullets as much as you can, as well as how much alarms you have set off! You always have to keep a close eye on your health because the damage of bullets is extremely realistic. Splinter Cell is great game for people who have been gaming for quite a while.
Summary: A devious game full of skill and cunning. Hiding bodies, killing knocking the baddies out and figuring out codes. Like resident evil without the monsters. Exciting and challenging until the end.
