Splinter Cell


Recommended Posts

Well I've been playin this game for the last 3 days, and let me tell you it rocks.

I've never really played a game like this (except for MGS 2).

I mean, it's so realistic. The graphics blow my mind, sometimes I forgot I was playin a game and I thought I was watchin a movie, the graphics are that good!!! ( PC versions graphics will not be as astounding sadly because they dumbed down the PC port to a G2 requirement, whiich loses some of the G3's abilities that come with the XBOX.

Back to the gameplay....

This is the first game I've played where you can actually pick locks, and I don't mean pick up a lock pick set and press A, I mean take yer set, walk up to the door, and you have to manually pick the lock with the aid of the rumble system.

Another sweet feature is that you use dynamic lighting to yer advantage. Now this is pretty sweet. Its not like MGS where if yer in the guards FOV you are spotted. Only if you are in they're FOV with the appropriate light they can see you ( this makes the game really intense when a guard is cm away from you and he can't see you.

Sound plays another big part. If you have a 5.1 surround sound system, USE IT!!!. The sound in this game not only provides abience, but it also helps you in tracking enemys and other characters. In one instance a guard was trying to sneak up on me, but he accidently kicked a can which rang out in the rear speakers. That clued me in, so0 I turned around and fired, defusing the threat.

Overall I think this game was built superb. I didn't come across any glitches or faults. Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. If you have an XBOX I'd defintely reccomend for you to pick it up.

1 more thing, the best night vision ever incorporated into a game hands down !!!
