Well , for my happiness buy this mustbuy game and never forget to buy a new mustbuy game the second version Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow!!!!!!!
However, with all these additionals, the plot seems to have taken a hit somewhere. The intro movie on the PS2 version shows some pretty action packed stuff but the plot as the game unfolds doesn't seem to bear it out. Techwise, the PS2 version is also less detailed than the PC version, with some of the maps shrunk slightly or having lesser enemies to contend with on some stages. The framerate also takes a hit at strange times, when there is very little happening onscreen. Unfortunately, quality issues seem to be the trend with recent PS2 ports from XBox/PC (think Max Payne 2).
Overall, the game is not bad if it's your first introduction to the action stealth genre. But if given a choice, I would take Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven or MGS2 over Splinter Cell anyday.
This game alone, has broadened my PS2 experience. At first I thought stealth action would be very boring and stupid (just a bunch of running through shadows) but it's loads more, It' s the excitement of grabbing an unsuspecting guard, or using a terrorist as a human shield, it's also standing in the shadows 10 inches away from a guard. These are all the experiences of the Stalth Action genre, and especially Metal Gear and Splinter Cell.
This game has AMAZING graphics, depth and concepts. First of all, the way you can stand 3 inches from a guard and not be seen is a gut-wrenching fun. This game is an emotional rollercoaster, mixed with fear, adrenaline, anger (because it's so hard at times) and amazement (coolness of the game).
This game is a definate must for any gamer. It's especially worth every penny of the $20 price tag.
Here's a breakdown:
Fun- 15/10 From hiding under the nose of a guard to eliminating one...it's great.
Graphics- 10/10 You can react with just about everything, from shooting out lights to turning off a light switch.
Difficulty- 15/10 So hard at times, you'll slam down the controller and storm out of the room...to come back a few seconds later of course :).
Gameplay- 15/10 Tons of moves to do...one for almost every occassion possible...there are so many, ther are some moves you'll never use. Very simplistic and natural tough.
What can I say...just a great, great game. It's really worth every cent. You should seriously invest some money into this game.
Oh, if you do buy this game, don't expect it to be rachet and clank: Going commando long...it's rather short.
