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...
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!?!?!
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.
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..
Summary: This game has good graphics, But let down by some poor levels. In particular one where you wear special classes to get through lazer detection beams. The is no depth to the beams appearing almost 2 dimensional could not of been play tested very well before finished product. Pretty package but poor contents.
When you die, you have to watch lots of repetitive irrelevant video!

Summary: Good enough game but the must watch video sequences are annoying to say the least. When you get killed you are sent back a ridiculously long way. I'd play it again but only when I have a lot of time to waste and there was nothing on TV.
Summary: Anyone who enjoyed previous Splinter Cells should probably avoid this. It's a very lush production, with good visuals and sound, but it has virtually nothing in common with the previous games in the series. It's a fairly competent shooter, but not excellent - most of the game can be passed by exploiting bottlenecks in the linear levels, mowing the baddies down one by one from doorways.
Summary: i've played a few splintercell games now but the only one i enjoyed and
finished was the orignal. i found this one to be a bit of a let down since the game no longer lets you
play it 3 different ways (complete stealth, stealth assasination, or out in the
open guns raging) I felt this game was too artsy-fartsy as your game will turn black and white
when Sam Fisher (the spy) is in shadows, after generations of computer graphics
i did not want to go back to playing games in...
