Good Stealth/Action Game.

Summary: You can play this game in your own way, you can choose to take the stealth approach or the aggressive approach, you will find yourself playing various missions/maps multiple of times because due to the variety of possible ways to finish it. And about the constant internet connection, I dont have a problem with it, if i dont like this kind of DRM, i should not buy this game.
Summary: I am pretty late to the party on this one. I just got this a week ago and played through the single player, finishing it tonight. It's a blast! Really good graphics, relatively tough AI, fun maps, dramatic story line, what more could you ask for? And at current prices, it is cheaper than a ticket to a movie. What's not to like? I had no problems with DRM. I had to sign up for a uplay account from ubisoft, that was it.
Summary: This game lags whenever played even on the lowest graphic settings. People have been saying the Ubisoft designed it for a gaming console, the fitted for the PC, which is why it lags on some computers. This game has been known to lag even on extremely powerful PCs. As far as the gameplay goes, it is not the same as the other Splinter Cell games. This game is a little more action packed, and Sam isn't even an agent anymore.
Neck snapping that never gets old, assuming you have internet.

Summary: This game is great fun. Not quite as stealthy as the early Splinter Cell games, but massively enjoyable no matter how you decide to play it. I believe an internet connection is required for a one time activation, and Uplay is kinda hopeless. 3 years after the game came out and it's still in beta saying it's just about to be updated. Nevertheless still very worth getting.
Summary: Unless you've been living under a rock or, you know, you're...a casual gamer (gasp!), you've probably already heard about the latest scheme by a major publisher to come up with a "pirate-safe" DRM system: -You must have your system connected to the internet at all times -Your saved games are managed by the DRM system..
I was waiting to play this, but i have to draw the line

Summary: You know, I consider myself really tolerant of DRM and things like Steam that make us validate our product is legit at install etc... BUT - there is a line, and this game definitely crosses it! I don't want any singleplayer game needing an internet connection on at all times! I am already a little annoyed that any single player game would require an internet connection at install...
Summary: 1) Internet required to play a single player campaign. 2) Saved games are saving in some server and not in your PC. Yes, you don't own your saved games anymore. This seems a big joke, but it's true.
