Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory User Reviews
The graphics, the gameplay, almost everything about this game is perfect in my opinion. Especially the graphics make it look very realistic, and they get you hooked to the screen immediately. Of course, graphics aren't THAT important in a game.The bad:
In my opinion, there's nothing that annoys me really in this game.
Of course everyone has his own opinions, but I never encountered anything bad in my game.
This game is a must-have for you Splinter Cell fans. Sneaking around, crawling up behind enemies.. it's all in this fantastic game.
It even has some new features such as Close combat skills. Sam Fisher can use his knife to stab or slit his opponent's throat. The new rifle Fisher uses can be used as a machine gun, a sniper and some sort of a rocketlauncher. Hide in the dark, sneak your way to the exit and complete your missions in Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.
- The great new abilities
- Way way smarter AI (at most times)
- An absoloutely immersive soundtrack that compliments the gameplay so well
- These are the best graphics you will ever see on this generation of Xbox's. From lighting to texturing, this is the best. It's like playing on a really expensive PC worth a few grand
"What happened to the light?"
"Somebody broke the light!"
"Who shot the light?"
"That light wasn't turned off"
These phrases are repeatedly said at LEAST a hundred times throughout the game by the otherwise clever guards. It's nice shooting them before they finish the sentence...hee hee....
"Who broke the *Aaaah*" *he he he*
There's nothing much I need to say, this is the most immersive sneak-em-up game out there, and completely kicks MGS's ass out of the competition. The satisfaction from getting sensitive information from a guard and immediately stabbing him in the back seconds after is so cool. I am now crouching in dark corners of my house and waiting for when I find out what's for dinner from interrogating a...suspect...
Anyways, you have to get this game if you don't have it. Oh, and co-op is bril too, apart from the homo-erotica moves...
anything that isn't listed belowThe bad:
-Live Co-op lag
-Lots of collision issues (one object goes through another when its not supposed to)
-AI is somewhat flaky at times
-Secondary and Opporitunity objectives can be almost too tough to complete
-Versus mode is a little Merc-favorable
ok, i'll just start with the bad and get it out of the way, then i point out the finer parts of each mode
Solo: biggest problem with the solo mode has to be the horrible collision issues. bodies don't stack properly, people slide through chairs... the list goes on. second biggest flaw is the semi-flaky AI. while its usualy fairly intelligent, the AI seems somewhat incomplete for certain situations. example: i was hiding in a corner that was kindof well lit, but not quite enough for me to be immediately noticable. a guard walked in the room, and tried to decide if he saw me for about 5 minute...
Rich and clever stealth mechanics.
Sneaking around works well enough, but when you get into a pinch and need to move quickly, you'll be frustrated with the controls because they're only tailored for stealth; not action.Summary:
Before this, I had never played a Splinter Cell game before. I heard they were good, so i decided to rent Chaos Theory.
Well, the hype isn't unfulfilled. Splinter Cell is definitely a winner.
If you haven't played a Splinter Cell game before (like me), you'll probably hit the water with a loud splash. There are no training missions to familiarize you with the controls. What you get is a series of boring "training videos" that no casual gamer is going to be interested in. All you can do is watch while Sam talks in the background. I watched a minute of the "stealth basics" video, quit, and the...
This is a really good game with it's amazing graphics.
And the way you can grab someone and chose which way you want to knock him out!
The bad part is: You can`t really find your objectives well. Its hard to complete the frusterating and annoying goals.Summary:
But overall this is an intense, frightening, and action-packed stealth game. It makes infiltration, hacking, killing, destroying,etc. etc. very fun and real! Hanging from a pipe and grabbing someone from their tracks is awesome. Or the lighthouse part: you are hanging from a ledge waiting for the enemy to walk right above you, and snatch him from out of nowhere and throw him to the rocks below. Or bashing a door when an enemy is right behind it. Don`t forget coming up behind him and snatching him, you have the options to interrogate him, suffacate him, or knocking him out by melee-ing him t...
New Stuff: 10/10
New online levels
Bad co op Lag
Too many old man jokes for Sam, makes me feel like his time is up and we'll never see him again.
Graphics are the best for any Xbox game.
Sound has some flaws but overall good.
The story is typically Tom Clancy save the world type lines, where the US faces some major crisis and they save the day. Doug Shetland turns evil in this game which is a good twist.
New stuff added is quite large. New sniper, shotgun and foregrip attatchments which can replace the regular launcher on Sams SK220 are a nice touch. Sam can use frag grenades, flashes and smoke as well as mines that are used against enemies. Sam can also hack into computers using his binoculars, as well as a new stealth move that all...
