Splinter Cell Essentials
12 October 2011
Summary: If you enjoy splinter cell and have a psp, this game is worth a play through. The controls take a little getting used to, but no more than any other psp game. The main game is a little short, but the bonus missions add another 2 hrs or more of play and are actually the longest levels in the game. I like the up close feel on the psp and got many hours of steathly game play. For the price, you can't go wrong in my opinion.
A good game. Not a good SPLINTER CELL game, but a good game.

Summary: I bought this expecting exactly what I got: a fun, albeit stripped down in every way splinter cell game. I'm a long standing SC fan, and was glad they included the nostalgia filled levels that they did, like the GFO Oil Rig and Television Free Indonesia (bonus mission). The Double Agent levels were kind of cool, but the NSA mission felt terribly broken. The Camera was godawful, and the lack of variable walking speed made grabbing enemies nigh on impossible.

Summary: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Essentials brings the fun world of stealth combat to the PSP. I adore the Splinter Cell series and really was looking forward to a PSP version to carry around with me. It just didn't come up to my expectations. Not that plot really matters in games like these, but what you get in Splinter Cell Essentials is sort of hokey.
Summary: Sam Fisher's PSP outing may not be perfect, but for a fan of the series, it's just what the doctor ordered. While it may feel unpolished in some places and ancient in others (it brings back things like the "3 alarms and you're out" rule) it's still fairly solid portable Splinter Cell action and who can complain about that!? So basically, Sam is being interrogated by the FBI and as they bring up old missions he's done, you play 'em.
Summary: I just recently bought Splinter Cell Essentials. Bear in mind that I'm a Splinter Cell fan so my review tends to be pretty favorable of the game. I'm not too far into the game unfortunately, but the game seems to be relatively fun. I'm definitely liking the heat/night vision goggles (better than the console versions). The missions seem to be long, but with plenty of checkpoint as well as a "save anytime" feature. This helps to reduce those moments where you go "Oh crap.
Summary: I really enjoyed this game, I have played through a whole splinter cell game before and I didnt find myself getting bored with this one. I have alot of games for my psp (29) and this is probobly my 7th favourite. The graphics are pretty good. The sound is also good but can sometimes be a bit glitchy and sound strange. I found this splinter cell alot less frustrating than the other I played. I only got frustrated a few times during this game.
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. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Essentials Game play You play (control) the part of Sam Fisher, Sam is a spy and you guide him through various missions. Although you will kill people during this game, the real skills needed ...
Good...But for people who have played all the game to death...Not for you...

Summary: When I bought this game I was immediatly dragged into playing it. The first few missions opened out into a good story line, and teh first missions were just about Fisher before he joined 3rd Echelon. As the game progresses however, it just seems to be flashbacks of familiar missions you've played and completed before from the other games with the odd one or two new ones.
Summary: I have always loved splinter cell, being introduced to the series by a PS2 demo disc (!). this is, as mentioned below, a sorta "best of" thing, the coolest scenes form all the old games banged into one (including that incredibly annoying New York level from Chaos Theory!!!). for those of you contemplating buying it, i wont ruin the obvious question (did Sam betray the NSA?
