Excerpt: Everyone’s favorite covert agent is back in action in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory. This time out Sam Fisher must unravel a conspiracy in the Far East that has begun to push Japan and the Koreas towards a crisis that can quickly engulf the region. Japan feels that its economy is threatened and forms a special branch of its Self Defense Force to protect its electronic systems and suspicions between North Korea and Japan hit an all-time high.
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.
Pros: - Beaucoup moins frustrant que les jeux précédents - Plusieurs petites nouveautés s'assemblent pour donner le meilleur jeu de la série - Les plus beaux graphiques à ce jour sur Xbox - Voix anglaise de haut niveau et traduction française complète
Cons: - Action un peu lente pour certains - Une mécanique de jeu misant sur l'essai et l'erreur
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.
