Excerpt: By Gary Kearney So here we are getting to what may be looked back upon one day soon as the final cycle of this generation of Xbox games. Soon the Xbox 360, or whatever the final name, will be grabbing all the headlines and wowing us all with its golly-gee high definition graphics. And I am looking forward to those games. Yet I am marveling at how good the current games on the Xbox are right now.
Summary: Chaos Theory is an enjoyable romp into the world of espionage. The only bad thing about it is the steep learning curve, and the fact that if you are not willing to learn this game could be a horrible experience, or one you just might want to avoid. On the other hand, if you are willing to learn all the finer details of the title you will be well on your way of becoming the ultimate spy, beating the short, but engrossing story mode, besting the Co-Op missions, and making...
Pros: Incredible all around.
Cons: The mutliplayer could be a tad more polished.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If previous installments weren't your bag, than this one won't be, either. But if you're a Splinter Cell fan, you will be treated to the finest SC title yet. The online fun alone could keep you playing for a very long time, but the single-player campaign is an absolute blast as well. There is something oddly stimulating about feeling both vulnerable and all-powerful at the same time, being a one-man army that is still human.
Excerpt: Not to say the games themselves can’t be enjoyable. I’m absolutely loving Chaos Theory , because it has the best in stealth action at the moment, and probably the best sensory experience too.
The more games I play with Tom Clancy’s brand on them, the more amused I am by their politics. Despite September11th and wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, we’re still - still , I can’t emphasize this enough - playing games set just about everywhere but the Middle East.
Excerpt: This is the third Splinter Cell game released on Xbox, and will defiantly not disappoint any hardcore Splinter Cell fan. Personally I have never really got into the Splinter Cell series, so this was a first for me, but the amount of time I spent playing the game is only pulling me more and more info the game.
Excerpt: "Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory on jälleen taattua laatua pelisarjan ystäville maustettuna entistä upeammalla audiovisuaalisella kokemuksella, sekä erittäin tunnelmallisella hiippailukokemuksella höystettynä, jota valitettavasti vain osittain särkee edelleen melko heikko tekoäly, sekä yksinpelin auttamaton lyhyys.
Excerpt: Gráficos de luxo... mecânica renovada... multiplayer de sonho.. um jogo sublime! A Ubisoft voltou à carga com mais uma dose de Splinter. E novidades não faltam, ao ponto de ter tudo para agradar mesmo a quem não tenha ficado apaixonado pela dupla de episódios anteriores. Isto para não falarmos no visual que acompanha a obra. Chaos é um verdadeiro portento gráfico... do melhor – senão mesmo o melhor – que passou pela consola norte-americana.
