this game is challenging from the get go. I had to use a cheat code just to pass training.

Look, I'm a Metal Gear Fan and I decided to give Splinter Cell a chance. By the first mission it's looking to be a great game. The story is good, the missions are entertaining and it's fun sneaking up guards...By the time you get to the third mission you start to realize that there's nothing making the story engaging. There's no drama or conflict between characters. You almost don't care anymore...The graphics are beautiful though but the animations are clunky (i admire them trying to go for more "artistic" feel by not doing motion capture but come on) . The controls take a litlle getting used to but you'll get it in no time...but the gameplay is extremely annoying at times. for example, you're discovered by a guard which means take him out, which some times means death for you, or shoot him which means definite death for you. It's like the guards are made of steel and you're a tower of jenga just waiting for someone to come and shoot you down. There's no real sense of purpose in the missions and no real sense of achievement if you complete a mission. I think this game is a rent. I hope the other two games are better than this...

Yet somehow the old Bond terminology doesn't do justice to Sam Fisher, Splinter Cell for the NSA. This game follows Fisher's journey through a complex plotline and at least four different countries, and all the while you get to make him hang from pipes and silently strangle his enemies from above.
The gameplay, despite the fact that you're mostly out of sight, remains intense throughout, especially when you're forced to improvise something and hit a guard on the temple with a can of Coca-Cola. Hey, it's a living.
The game is mostly stealth oriented, with a little bit of rapid gunfire thrown in to keep you on your toes. Step into the world of a real secret agent and abandon thoughts of morality. They'll only get you killed.
