I just could not get into this one - original Xbox version much better

Summary: In preparation for the new wave of consoles, I'm playing through all my old 360 games I bought for less than $20 and this was at the bottom of the pile. I played the original Xbox game with the same name back in the day (2006?), and liked that almost as much as the best in the series, Chaos Theory. However, this 360 version of the game is really a huge disappointment.
Summary: This was a total letdown for me. I got this thinking that I'd get a brand new experience playing a game I already had on a different console, but it was too different. Usually with Splinter Cell games I pick up on the controls and the in-game features pretty easily, but this time I was just overwhelmed. It seems like it's too easy to lose/get blown up/get caught. The only upside was the really nice graphics.
Summary: I played all the Splinter Cell titles on the X-Box and loved them all. I was stoked about playing the latest installment on a new generation console, the PS3, but after playing the game, this is what I can tell you: Gosh. It looks very much like all the others. The lighting doesn't seem greatly improved. The character's animations don't seem any more advanced. I guess maybe I was expecting too much.
Summary: When I saw Splinter Cell: Conviction, I thought this would be better - less script, varied missions. However, I found myself deeply disappointed. 1. Bad graphics 2. Badly thought-out levels/maps 3. Bad design If you care about the story, get Conviction. For the ultimate stealth and action game, I urgently recommend Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
Summary: Why... ? One reason only... WHAT'S WITH SAM'S GIANT BACK! The camera sits so close to Sam Fisher's back that you can barely see what's going on!!!!!!!!! I played SC-Double Agent on PS2 and the camera view was much more functional. I was really looking forward to this game but I was disappointed by the lack of functionality in terms of this camera issue.
Summary: I am really surprised at the good reviews here, so I guess I'm pretty much going to be on my own with this one, but there is no getting away from the fact that this game is very dull. Before you say it, I'm a big fan of stealth games and was not expecting this to be a COD-style shooting-fest. But please, there really is so little to do here that you will start to wonder why you bother to get Sam Fisher out of bed on a morning. Here's what will annoy you most: 1.
Good game but UBISOFT took alot of the classic things away !

Summary: Before the game was released and i saw the trailers on GT:TV I thought "Yes" cant wait. Anyway a few months later the game arrived and like most people when a new games comes out you cant wait to play it. So i put the game in and started it up...... Here is a list of the bad things firstly.
