Summary: This is a trilogy of 3 games, but is mostly annoying to play. It includes 3 games that are difficult. More so because the controller functions and buttons between each game is different. The game avatar often gets stuck and cannot be moved without restarting the game. Other times, glitches are in the Chaos and CIA training that just will not allow you to continue to the next level. Also saving and reloading played games is inferior to others.
Summary: Once you've played any of the more recent Splinter Cell games you'll never want to pick this one up again. I'm not knocking these games because they are what they are, 1st generation PS2 controls and graphics. If I'd seen this maybe 10 years ago I might have tried it then, but I still would have found it awkward and difficult to play. SC Blacklist is the best Clancy game I've ever played and I hope there is more to come.
Summary: .. But just that. They eliminated core features from the original games. I understand forsaking online since there's no apparatus in place to potentially support it but the split screen had no reason to bite the dust. That being said these are functional emulations of the single player sp campaigns. The menus should have also been adapted to widescreen tvs but now I'm just being finicky. My copy also didn't come with a root beer float.
Great games Still Playable After A Decade, HD Treatment Only Slightly Disappointing...

Summary: I have been a huge fan of the Splinter Cell franchise since the first installment and I was very much looking forward to the re-release of these titles with an HD remaster for the PS3. I played the first game on the PS2 back in the day and the next two on the PC. I'm a big fan of stealth games and of course, TCSC revolutionized the genre. Just a few observations: 1.) These are supposed to be ports of the original PC versions.
Summary: its the first 3 splinter cell's just in high definition. nothing has changed. doesn't mean its a bad thing. if your hoping for anymore then that, then look elsewhere. but, its splinter cell, what else do you need.
Summary: I give it a 10! Yes it's overrated, but it's based on the fun value. And it's sentimental as I'm a huge fan of the first three games on PC. If you're like me, don't worry about the average ratings, you'll love playing Sam on your wide screen TV with a gamepad, especially Chaos Theory which I found graphically beautiful (almost as nowadays standards) with a very good frame rate. As much I give it a 10! Yes it's overrated, but it's based on the fun value.
Summary: I'll always love Splinter Cell, from when I played on Gamecube and PS2. These games will always have high replayability. The HD graphics are a great addition too, they look like what you'd get on the PC versions (which is saying alot).
Summary: This Trilogy is pure nostalgia for those of you who love strategy games! It's funny that I've never played the first Splinter Cell but I owned both the second and third. Some of my favorite parts from Pandorra Tomorrow are when Sam Fisher enters Jerusalem and the balcony watcher says "Is that foot steps!?... probably just my imagination... There's SOMETHING over there!... Something's moving... HELLO? Who is that!?... nothing but ghosts and shadows." Entertaining.
