    Ohh Ubisoft what have you done, you have completely missed the point here. The DS is meant to be a platform for games inconcevable on any other console. This feels like good game, wrong platform.

    I quite liked this game. The graphics are fairly decent, even though they're not the best out there. The controls are OK when you get used to them, and the touch screen allows really easy camera movement. There are a few bugs that can be annoying, but if you persevere Splinter Cell CAN be a fairly enjoyable gaming experience.

    It's long, and the levels and gameplay are solid throughout. [Aug 2005, p.85]

    Although far from perfect, this is still shaping up to be the best portable version of Splinter Cell to come out to date.

    There are even certain instances where you can find yourself focusing on your stealth tactics rather than struggling with the interface, and in those instances the game plays out quite well. It's just too bad those are the exception rather than the rule.
