Worst Tom Clancy?

Kimchi , GameStop
28 December 2008
  • Summary: Worst Tom Clancy? I do believe so. Tom Clancy's like a god making video-games. But this one is, well... um... well, terrible. Ghost Recon Advanced War fighter and it's sequel are awesome! So is Rainbow Six Vegas and the sequel too. Tom Clancy's the king of sequels. This is my first Tom Clancy portable,but it's terrible. The second level, that's on Columbia, it's the best. In the Yugoslavia level, that's where the game got ruined. But when I select that level, it freezes.

Splinter Cell Essentials

  • 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.

Actually 3.5 stars...

  • 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.

Only for a true fan

  • 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.

good, but controls are hard. Very hard.

  • 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.

Spiel ist gut, die technische Umsetzung aber fast schon eine Zumutung

  • Summary: Also ich spiele Splinter Cell schon seit Teil 1 am PC und ich habe jeden Teil durchgespielt, bei Double Agent sogar zusätzlich zum PC noch die Wii (gleich wie PS2) Fassung weil die sich stark unterschieden. Auch Essentials setzt auf das bewährte Spielprinzip und als Kenner der Reihe wird man nur wenig überrascht, zum Spiel selbst gibts eigentlich nicht viel zu sagen, die Levels sind so eine Art "Best-Of" der ersten 4 Teile, hier gibt es auch wenig zu meckern.

Gut bis durchschnittlich!

  • Summary: Splinter Cell ist kein Meisterwerk! Die Grafik ist durchschnitt und von technischer Seite kann das Spiel nicht überzeugen: Ruckler, Clipping- und Soundfehler trüben den Eindruck! Die Story ist nur für Splinter Cell-Kenner interessant die die vorigen Teile oder den aktuellen Splinter Cell Double Agent part kennen... Ich als Splinter Cell-Fan bin sehr enttäuscht von Ubisoft! Die Steuerung ist misslungen und außer der Story uninteressant... Es gibt besseres!
