This is a frustratingly hard game that requires patience and mastery of the controls. When you get it down though, it can be an amazing game. I tried playing this game several times and gave up due to frustration, but through some patience learned how to play it.

For it's time the graphics are amazing. Sound cues are great. There's some annoyances though that keep me from giving it a spectacular rating.

I realize the name of the game is stealth, but there were plenty of opportunities when even if the guard heard me, I could have bum rushed him before tripping an alarm.

I also felt like there was only one way to do many things. There were plenty of situations where I would have loved to try different scenarios, but the game had pre-programmed one successful route.

Again if you are patient and can deal with some of the glitches this can be a pretty amazing game. It's AWESOME when a guard is standing right next to you in the dark and doesn't see you.

This is a fun game but i made the mistake of renting Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell : Double Agent and that just really made this game seem not as fun if i had gotten this before the newer one.If you want to play this , i recommend to play them in order and play this one first.

First of all I have to say I love this game and the entire splinter cell series dont rent buy it I will tell you why but caution if you like to shoot things too much this is not the game for you you have to memorize the gaurds routine patterns not be seen you can grab them from behind and force them to open a door for you that has a retinal lock on it the storyline is out standing if i had four thumbs they would all be up plus conviction is coming out they have more games of this so you can continue with sam fisher so buy it dont think about it buy it!!
