This game might be good. It looks like there's plenty of good game to be had. To bad I couldn't get to it.
To start out. There's a video that was poorly converted into 3D. When will game designers learn how completely unacceptable bad 3d is to the human brain. It's painful to see and it's totally distracting. Distant buildings appearing closer than the parking lot in front of them and people who are flat against walls and bend along with the floor make me want to shut my eyes and rub my face until I forget what I just saw.
Then after that, the game starts. except I got to a part where it says to press the up button to jump. I pressed it and nothing happened. I pressed all the buttons and no one jumped. I checked the menus and the settings. I ran in circles and pushed against walls. Nothing would make me jump. So I quit.
I might have tried again if the controls didn't feel like guiding a blind man through a mirror-maze with sign language.
I love the stealth experience of splinter cell, and this is a very good rendition of the Gamecube version of Chaos Theory. It has all of Sam's gadgets including the SC-20K, FN 5.7 pistol, combat knife and all of Sam's moves from the original version. It also has fusion goggles which is a one vision goggle set combining night, thermal, and electronic vision in one viewing mode. The touch screen controls work very well as you use them to select your gear and weaponry and to perform other actions. 3D seemed somewhat mild to me but certainly not terrible. Only one problem with this game. It has a large amount of cursing and there is no voice volume to cut it out. I would have bought it if it had only had a feature to knock out the language. If cursing bothers you then don't buy it.
