Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell review
Tom Clancy? Again?

The good:

The graphics and shadows are world-class. The realsim is superb, and the missions are realistic. Lots of weapons also. And off of them are contained within a silenced sniper/assualt rifle and a silenced 9mm semi-auto. There are quite a few attachments to the assault rifle like the sticky camera, gas grenade, frag grenade, sticky shocker and a few others. Also an extra level. And the extra level is a good addition.

The bad:

Its the same bad things as on the Xbox. The missions are a little too hard for the normal player. Also the storyline is difficult to follow, other than 2 agents are missing. AND it seems gaurds have super-human hearing and vision. Its seems pretty hard to nail that perfect split-jump at the right time. Ammo is really limited and you constantly run put of ammo as none of the weapons are accurate at long range except for the sniper mode of the assault rifle. It is also apparent that fragmentation grenades have little or no effect on enemies-only you. Also the graphics are not as good, so without those excellent graphics, this game lacks.

Summary:

Overall good game, an excellent addition to a collection, just be prepared for countless enemies either coughing at a shot to their head, or using your game disk as a coaster and a frisbee. You may enjoy it if you are a Metal Gear Solid fan, as stealth is the only option- it is counterproductive to rush into a room full of enemies- they will certainly kill you. The extra level is a nice addtion, and the controls on the PS2 controller are better, since they are closer together. A little better than the Xbox version.
