Decent game, but different than the previous Splinter Cell games

Summary: Overall I think the game had some cool elements. I liked the last spotted silhouette, the way the objectives are displayed, and how you can easily move from cover to cover. But, this is unlike the previous Splinter Cell games that I have played.
Summary: Good graphics and sound - despite the on-going issues with both (Testing department??) Story line is too linear and no on-line/multiplayer option therefore less incentive to continue playing after completion of the game. anyway good effort - bring on Pandora Tomorrow.
Summary: I really don't like this game that much. First off, the game is very linear, which I could handle if it had some replay value to keep me going. The gameplay was fun for a while but you had to sneak everywhere in this game, making running almost useless except for the parts where there are no guards...
Summary: Well, nothing special. Yes it is good, but I am tired of walking in all 3d alone. Also map on game just sucks. And to make it worse you can allways see that there is only one way to go, just go forward and no left or right.
Why do reviewers give a great review on this game?

Summary: I read many great reviews from gaming magazine and web sites and I was convinced that this would be a great to play. I bought the X-BOX version of this game and man, I was not very happy with the graphics! It looks awful! The game was hard and it gets boring after several hours.
Summary: No...I never did feel like Sam Fisher. The Graphics are some of the best I have seen, but graphics alone don't make a great game. I feel like I must be insane because I don't like it as well as 90% of the players, but this game is SO LINEAR it makes me sick.
Summary: Splinter Cell is a great looking game. I don't like modern settings, but they did a beautiful job making the levels look great. Probably the best use of light and shadow in any game. The game moves along quickly, but it seems very linear and small to me. I'm just blasting through the levels.
Summary: The graphics and gameplay are not bad but I HATED the whole premise of this game. You play an elite assassin of some agency of the USA government, your job is to go out and kill the evil non-American terrorists and 'bad-guys'.
Tom Clancy Enters the Third-Person Action/Stealth Genre
28 December 2004
Summary: If you played Tom Clancy's previous games, you'll know that most of them were first-person tactical shooters. The Tom Clancy name takes a different approach with Splinter Cell and allows you to play a game heavier on story and arcade action.
