Splinter Cell: Double Agent
Game Over Online
1 November 2015
Excerpt: I knew five minutes into the original Splinter Cell that I was playing what would soon become a mega franchise. It had all the right ingredients: a compelling story, stealthy gameplay, cool gadgets and weapons, and a badass main character. What more could you ask for?
Excerpt: Moving through a low-lit garden in the dead of night, I silently took out a guard and his dog with sleeping gas, and moved swiftly under a balcony as another guard moved overhead. With a swift tap of the ‘X’ button Sam reached up and smashed the guard’s face into the railing and pulled him over into...
Excerpt: Let me get this out of the way, right off the bat shall we? Sam Fisher is back, do not adjust your sound settings. This is Sam Fisher. This is the first Splinter Cell, from my memory anyway, where Canadian Actor Michael Ironside is not the voice of Sam Fisher.
Ubisoft’s Stealth Series Lights The Way For Future Installments

Excerpt: Who doesn’t know Sam Fisher and Splinter Cell, the series that made him big? Started out as an excellent stealth game on the original Xbox, the series quickly became popular, amongst others thanks to the original gameplay, the excellent finishing and recently also the surprising multiplayer...
Conclusion: By the end of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, you might have a vague sense of having missed something along the way. This is largely due to the games’ insistence on atmosphere and back-story, rather than carrying you through a compelling and explicit narrative.
Pros: Superb control innovation; significantly refined gameplay; looks fantastic; engrossing.
Cons: Unimproved sound design; presentation still lags; lack of emphasis on narrative.
Excerpt: Let me start off this review by explaining a little about myself. I would classify myself as a casual gamer. I do not have time to play games for more than an hour at any given time, if I am lucky.
Excerpt: Stealth-based games are often a love or hate type of game. Either you’re the type of gamer that just wants to run through levels and blow stuff into oblivion, not caring about being sneaky, even if the mission you are doing would dictate that you are.
Summary: This is how you do a Splinter Cell game. From start to finish this blows everything else out of the water with an excellent story, fantastic production values and wonderful gameplay. I can’t wait to see where they go from here but Solid Snake has some serious work to do to impress now.
Excerpt: Sam Fisher has a pretty rough time in the first few minutes of Splinter Cell: Double Agent. The game starts with him losing an overzealous greenhorn on a mission, then things get worse when his daughter is killed in an auto accident. And, to top it all off, he's in the slammer.
