HUGE FAILURE for this edition

P. Zhang, Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: The game itself is good. There are some well-known problems with this edition (although I didn't know them until I encountered and googled them). 1. There is no real COMIC BOOK. You might probably be surprised because it was illustrated right below the other graph book on the case. In fact a lot of people were surprised, so don't feel bad about yourself. If you google it, you will see people telling you the comic book is contained in the USB. 2.

Big Let Down!

  • Summary: I have been a long time splinter cell fan. I felt it was a dumbed-down version of previous games. Just start playing your old games again.

Really disappointing

Bryan J., Newegg
22 April 2010
  • Summary: Worst of the Splinter Cell series. No stealth component, idiotic AI and AI dialogue, incredibly easy all add up to just that, a game that really seems like they just wanted to put out another game under the SC franchise. I've been tracking this game since it's announcement and I have to say, a huge letdown. I think if you like what the other SC games were about, you'll be disappointed.
  • Pros: Interesting storyline, though the giant EMP machines setup around DC are a bit of a stretch... Interrogations are pretty fun and have a nice OH SNAP factor. The new "execute" option certainly makes for some cool action sets, but further reduces the difficulty (you can automatically 1-shot kill up to 4 enemies at once) and detracts from what little stealth component there is. Upgradeable weapons were neat, but...
  • Cons: Where's the Splinter Cell in this game??!? The need for stealth is completely nonexistent. It's a straight 3rd person shooter that you could easily finish without trying to avoid being seen by a single enemy. Levels feel narrow with very few options to maneuver around enemies, save some awkwardly out of place piping on occasion and force you through one path. Enemies are incredibly easy to dispatch and simply shout out what they're going to do to find you "We're gonna...

What happened to all the stealth SC is known for?

Juliet, Amazon
18 April 2010
  • Summary: This game was purchased for my husband and reviewed by him. As a big splinter cell fan, I was excited to see the new one coming out. Dispite all the bugs we purchased the game right away. So far, no freezing. But overall the game has been a HUGE disappointment! It's as if in an attempt to simplify the actions they have made too many things work off the same button and you constantly have to watch what you are doing before you press anything.

Sam "Gears of War" Fisher

  • Summary: Splinter Cell has been my favorite game series since it first arrived on the scene. The stealth action and gadgets not to mention it's emphasis on avoidance and evasion game play made it unique. Sadly all that made Splinter Cell stand out is gone and it's been turned into a hybrid rip off of Gears of Wars and Call of Duty.

This could of been great!?!?

TomPINDUB, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: What the title points to is there was so much that could have been done with this edition of Splinter Cell and it wasn`t,(I recently played through Blacklist 5* all the way,That is what a Splinter Cell is about!)And even if i played this on release i would have been just as frustrated/bored. Eg: A.I=Awful, Graphics=Pretty Poor, Game Play=Easy,Too easy,Very Repetitive,!In fact i couldn`t wait for this to be over. 2*=Starts Great and a Great Story line. Shame!?!?

Not what you're expecting

Chris, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: First I should point out that the SERVICE FROM THE SELLER WAS ABSOLUTELY FINE; the product arrived within the specified time period. No problems here. MY REVIEW IN A NUTSHELL: Gameplay is incredibly simplistic and is often extremely frustrating. It's designed for you to shoot people, and stealth is just a lazy afterthought.

Good game, NO SOUND

Me, amazon.co.uk
28 June 2011
  • Summary: The game is good, i havent played much, but it seems very enjoyable. The only major problem is that there is no sound outside of the cut scenes and loading times. I have tried testing and playing on both sound options, yet it still wont work..
