This game is cool man! This is the first and best Splinter Cell game. The graphics it spits out are good for the GameCube's slightly below average graphics. Hiding bodies is probably the easiest aspect to the entire game, because this game is pretty dang hard. It is very fun for anyone who is looking for a excellent stealth action game and a decent challenge. All you people say it's too hard, oh stop whining, thats what makes this game good. SO ALL YOU PEOPLE THAT ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE DIFFICULTY SHOULD SHUT UP!!!!!!!! Okay?, Got it . It's a very hardcore game so if you're a casual gamer this ain't for you! So go out and play it! Now!
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...
