    Ubi Soft hit the nail on this one…, August 1, 2003

    OK, so, if your looking for an action shooter title with a bit more strategy, or a stealth based game that allows multiple ways to complete the mission (e.g.: Hitman II), Get Splinter Cell, period. It combines some of the best visuals I’ve ever seen into a game where everything from lighting to the terrain your standing on affects yur risk of being captured (read: complete your mission).You can even shoot out the lights in a room! Unlike other games, there is no “obvious” way to get around a problem. You’ll have to figure it out on your own, wheather its simply sniping a lone guard from a dark corridor and dragging his corpse into the shadows, or sneaking up behind him, grabbing him, and walking towards your objective using him as a human shield. There IS a lot of trial and error in this game, it is definently not an easy game to beat. You will not however become bored with it once you’ve tried something a couple of times (granted, I did become bored with it after I got up from the computer and realised it was 4 AM seriously!). The graphics are great,but you will need a pretty high-end system to run it. It wouldn’t load on my old PIII, but I got a new Toshiba Satellite with an nVIDIA Geforce FX-M card and it smokes!! Also, the mission advancement is very well-balanced. You won’t get all the cool gagets and weapons immediatly. You are always equiped with what is needed for your mission, but some of them are limited ammo, so you might fail your mission if you don’t have any once you reach your objective! Some examples are:
    -the laser mic. point andlisten device for hearing conversation behind walls
    -diversion camera. small camera that emits a whistle on command and can also shoot knock-out gas.

    Another great addition to this game is the dialogue between Sam Fisher and his boss, and even the enemies! example:

    NSA Boss: Good Lord! That’s general Kong Feirong!

    Fisher: Good Lord. Who’s that?

    ________________________________________________________________

    Soldier 1: So…how many did you kill?
    S2: Eh…computer geeks? I killed 1, he got four. (points)
    S1: Four? (mutters then gasps) Hey, I think I see something!

    Those soldiers were then blown to pieces by a frag grenade.

    There’s a bit of dark humour in this game, like most of the rest of it. This is a dark game, and to fully appreciate the stunning visuals, you might have to turn off your night-vision goggles once in a while.

    This is truly the most complete, breathtakingly real black ops game I have ever played. Don’t try to compare this to MGS. It will blow you away with its graphics (those sys specs are real!)and the gameplay is unmatched. And if you even think that Fishers headset looks wierd with the three green eyepieces, you’ll change you mind after playing. I’d definently give this game a 10/10, this is one of the best games I’ve ever played! AND THERES A SEQUEL COMING!!!!!!

    …Hey, who turned out the lights?

    Splinter Cell and Metal GEar Solid 2, nothing ALike, July 24, 2003
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell – PlayStation 2 (Jewel case) (Video Game)

    I’ve heard a lot of idiots going around saying that this game is the killer of Metal Gear Solid 2, that’s like saying Tony Hawk 4 will kill off Grand Theft Auto Vice City. First of all, the games are very different. Splinter Cell is firmly rooted in reality, and that includes the lighting and shadow effects that are constantly mentioned and there is a lot of trial and error, whereas MGS 2 is a mix between fantasy and reality and has a set course for you to follow, so these games aren’t really the same, and given the choice between them, I’d take ’em both. With that out of the way, ON TO THE REVIEW!
    Splinter Cell is the only Tom Clancy game I’ve ever liked, I feel that games like Rainbow 6 and Ghost Recon are too real to be fun, and if I wanted realism I’d join the Marines, but what makes this so different? Who knows, but the story is very cool and realistic, the graphics are OK for the Ps2 hardware and the actual gameplay is excellent, you can hide from enemies in the shadows and distract them, enabling you to move on and the controls are also very easy to use, taking only a short time to master. The enemy AI is also very realistic and it offers a good fight, which is why you should either sneak up from behind enemies or just avoid them altogether.
    Reading the other reviews, I’ve seen that in addition to comparing MGS2 to SC, people also compare the XboX to Ps2 versions, I’ve played both and they’re equally good. The Xbox version has better graphics going for it and you can also download the levels that are in the Ps2 version, the Ps2 version has better and easier controls and the levels are already there. Given the choice between the xBox version and Ps2 version, I couldn’t choose and the only reason I got the Ps2 version was because I don’t have an XboX.
    But it doesn’t matter which version you buy, because the game is cool wether you get the Ps2, Xbox, PC or the Gamecube version, (is there a Gamecube version?)
    Thanks for taking the time to read the review.

    Lookin good!, February 3, 2003

    Well chances are, you already know of this game but you probably want to know what the PS 2 verison will have to offer that the original did not. Well so far the following additions have been confirmed. The PS 2 version will feature an all-new binocular-vision headset, as well as four, count ’em, 4 new levels in the power plant area! It will also get 30 additional minutes of cinematics, and a completely new four-minute intro with music performed by the Prague Orchestra. Ubi Soft also said they will support Dolby Pro Logic II sound, so anyone with a PLII sound setup will really appreciate this feature. The graphics seem to have been slightly downgraded due to the fact that the original was made for completely different hardware but it looks like it’s coming together very well considering it’s a port and the extra levels and gadgets should make it a worthy purchase.
