What can I say? The game is just amazing. I think this is a step forward from Conviction, but still a step back from Chaos Theory. Ghosting is definitely in this game, as you can go through some levels without having to take out many enemies like in Conviction. Co-Op is a very fun mode to play while with a friend. They kind of integrated Deniable Ops in this game with Grims missions are Infiltration, Kobins missions are Hunter, Charlies missions are kind of a Last Stand mode, and Briggs mission are basically all of them. If you are a big Splinter Cell fan, you like this game.
I never played a splinter cell game before so i thought i would give this a try and the one second i popped the disk in, downloaded the texture pack, and saw the first cut-scene i truly fell in love with the shadows, the art, the face art, also something i really don't see which is face emotions. Getting into the game-play and story-line, both exceeded my expectations, the story is very simple but very deep and draws you closer and closer, while the game-play was awesome(even though I do get irritated when I meant to do one action but another action happens to cost me my progress in the mission. Voice work is pretty good, all of the characters really enhance each other and makes the reactions with each other very much realistic and well written. Overall a great game to BUY and definitely worth a rent.
