sure alot of hardcore fans are mad they made the game easier, I was mad they did away with the ability to move bodies, but theres really no need to I guess! Tom Clancy has been notorious for making games that cause me to break a controller or just never finish the game because Im stuck in a level, like the first Rainbow Six complete with NO checkpoints and a clumsy squad to get in your way, or just get killed out in the open so you have to risk your life to save them. Games that are too hard never sell well, and its clear they wanted a game to appeal to the masses. Hardcore fans might be upset at the changes but Im sure casual gamers welcome the change. THE GAME IS B.A. at least rent it!
This game is a must play. I will start by saying that I really did not play any of the previous splinter cell games. If you haven't either do not have any reservations whether or not it is worth picking this game up. It is entertaining, fun, and rewarding to play. The mark & execute system is something that I have read is new to this franchise and I believe it works nicely. Its a cool way of rewarding the player for being stealthy. Stealth games often frustrated me because I lacked the patience to move slow and methodically, but this game had me hooked from the start. If you are a fan of a good stealth game or shooter you must do yourself a justice and pick this game up.
