Splinter Cell Essentials
4 November 2006
Conclusion: Splinter Cell finally out for the PSP. well, the story takes place after DA, and Sam is being interrogated, and through the interrogations, you go through some of the levels/locations from past Splinter Cell games. Note this, this is not a port. 2 levels in the main game a reused, and thats oil rig, and penthouse, yet all the rest of the missions are new. There are also 3 other missions that are unlockable. This review is only over the single player portion of the game.
Conclusion: Well for Â£10 you cant go far wrong. It is a good game and needs alot of thinking to get through it. It is very tactical and is quite easy to get stuck on but if you want a challenge buy this game
Conclusion: A polished enough game with excellent graphics and sound - but it is a rehash of other missions from other splinter cells with slightly less depth! Best for die hard fans only at full price but at this price range there is nothing really that comes close to giving the same value. Yes it is a little short, yes it is rehashed levels but currently not much to beat it on PSP that i have played.
Conclusion: If you love the other splinter cell games, then this is for you. Yet i cant help to see a number of problems with this game. First of all, it does seem like you are playing in the dark for a lot of the game. This is not helped by the fact that the graphics are not brilliant, and also the camera angles are very hard to get used to! Also, for a psp game it does have long load times, and the multiplayer is not really worth bothering with. Yet there are some positives.
Conclusion: Make your way through crazy places, shoot, stab or break necks along the way to uncover the truth ABSOLUTELY! GOOD! VALUE! THUMBS! UP! BUT! DONT! KILL! TO! MANY! OR! YOUR! EYES'LL! GO! SQUARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Conclusion: This game is very good but has only one downside. It is a repeat of all the other games so if you have one of the others then for a while the game will be very easy. But this is a great buy if it's ur first.
Conclusion: For Â£10 it has to be good but i personally found this a great buy, i loved it and i think evoryone who likes splinter cell will enjoy this, with a bonus of spy vs spy multiplayer mode. I would recommend this game to anyone. The only downfall is some parts are quite hard to understand and complete, also i found the story mode to be a bit shorter than expected. A great deal for Â£9.99 and i personally think almost anyone will enjoy it.
Conclusion: I have played all of the games from the xbox + 360's. The concept of the game is good and draws in new points. There are old and new levels all are to develop this games storyline. The controls at first can be unforgiving. But once you are used to them the game really draws you into it.
Conclusion: I've got all the splinter cell's for the Xbox and 360 and i love them. Essentials is the only one i've got for any Sony console. when playing the game, the first thing i noticed was the camera. The controls are extremely fiddley and you end up really missing the right thumb stick that controls the camera on normal console controllers.
