Summary: It takes some time to master the controls as there are many. of particular frustration is the left directional button is used to turn on/off the night vision goggles, I found myself trying to evade enemy fire, only to turn on my night vision goggles and a take one for the team. Ouch!
Tom Clancy Enters the Third-Person Action/Stealth Genre
16 January 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. If you ever played titles such as Hitman or Metal Gear Solid, you already know exactly how the game works.
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. Sam is one of the best animated characters in gaming. It's a pleasure to watch him go over a wall or pick up a body. He moves so fluidly and lifelike.
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. I would have loved to be able to go into all the doors it wouldn't let me in, and have the chance to actually figure things out myself. They may as well have left red arrows flashing to get you to the end quicker.
Summary: I'm not an experienced gamer, but Splinter Cell looks promising enough. After doing some research, I've found quite a few messages from users who have had their PCs crash as a result of this game. Can anyone verify this?
Summary: Splinter Cell is not a bad game, but it's not the great game that everyone seems to be making it out to be. The game's tagline is "Stealth Action Redefined." To make sure the player gets the idea that the emphasis is on "stealth," the "action" is severely handicapped. Once your character has his gun out he's able to move only at a snail's pace, making shootouts awkward at best.
Summary: Having read most of the reviews here I can see various points. There have been high hopes for Splinter Cell and I think, generally, Ubi Soft have delivered. The graphics are spectacular, the sound is intense and the various movements and controls of Sam Fisher or intuitive and very easy to execute, for PC gamers anyway! However, this is not the in depth experience I was hoping to get into.
Summary: I played the PC demo and had a minor graphics glitch here and there but didn't think anything of it. I gave the demo to 2 of my friends, and it caused problems in their computers. I was so eager to get this game for the PC I shrugged it off. As soon as the game shipped, there was already a patch for it. I'm frustrated right now because I'm roughly half way into the game and I can't continue because when the level loads the game crashes.
Excerpt: I have always been a Splinter Cell fan, and I had been looking forward to this new title for some time, when I one day went down to the store and bought this game. Previous to that, I had tried out the demo of the multiplayer part of this game. Once again, you step into the shoes of Sam Fisher, a super spy working for the NSA, who the government would deny the existence of in a heartbeat, should he be captured behind enemy lines.
Pros: Good graphics, generally good gameplay, presentation .
Conclusion: whrn I begin to play this game I realize that will be a enormous fight, against the manny bugs a problems that the game have,when I finished I realize that i have an enormous patience.... But I have to say that the game have a good history and it will be a huge sucess if al this problems had been solved...
