Very disappointing game

Summary: I have never played any games in the SC series, which I think might be part of my problem. If you have some familiarity with the series (I had read that some missions in this game were taken directly from the console versions), then you probably have some idea of what is going on.
Summary: I must disagree with the other reviewers. The game isn't designed for the PSP, the gameplay and story aren't bad at all, but there are very important features Ubisoft dev team didn't had in their mind and they should.
Summary: I have played splinter cell on xbox 360 and ps3 and can say I brought this for the psp because I thought it would be fun to play on a portable console ohh boy was I wrong I mean to start the camera angles are so terrible and the controls are hard to use on the psp I found it very hard to function...
Splinter Cell fans wishing for a pick-up-and-play port of the PS2 hit will be left disappointed.

Excerpt: Splinter Cell: Essentials is the first Splinter Cell game appearing on the PSP...and may well be the last. An average game with average presentation and awkward controls, Essentials will leave PSP owners disappointed. Presentation I'll be blunt. This game earns very few marks for presentation.
Summary: I am sure that suggesting a stealth game is too dark will attract criticism, but as my first foray into the world of Splinter Cell, I really couldn't see the point of a game that almost forces you to use the night vision permanently.
Summary: I really like the Splinter Cell series, and I wanted to like this too, but It's just not a good game... in fact its barely a decent game. Even if you love the franchise, I would advise you NOT to buy this frustrating sub par, game. Get Socom, Killzone or Syphon Filter instead.
Excerpt: Well it all started on my birthday, I was the very happy recipient of a PSP. One day I may even write a review about this most wonderful beast. For now however I will confine myself to one game that I have played and completed.
