This game is awesome as expected, those who say otherwise should get a neural augmentation to counter stupidity. I love the 1st 2 games, and when I found out this was coming out I nearly crapped myself, the storyline is great, and kinda creepy because its closer to being a reality then not, it uses hidden truths just like the other 2 games, they talk about Fema concentration camps which are really being built all over the US, it talks about fema coffins which 500,000 are sitting in georgia right now waiting to be used for something there not telling us. It talks about the builderberg group, illuminati, the trilateral commision, council on foreign relations, and they all are real and as corrupt as ever. and the game has a great replay-ability thanx to multiple ways to do things, I pre ordered this game 6 months before it came out, and it was worth the wait. I was sad when it came to an end, but if any add ons come out I'll be on it.

The gameplay is simply fantastic. If you take the stealth approach, the game plays very much like the original Splinter Cell titles. The story on its own is nothing particularly special, but the themes and ties to the original are fascinating to me, and should also be intriguing for any fan of the original.
You should have plenty of points to augment whatever you want, so the customization aspect is only in the order you go after everything, not necessarily picking what to specialize in. My biggest complaint is probably batteries not recharging once fully depleted, but I certainly see how it is a balancing issue and they did not want anybody cloaking through the entire game.
Easily, without a doubt, the best game that I have played so far this year.
