  1. Frustratingly similar to the first, but plenty of good set-pieces in there.
  2. There are a few stunning moments (i.e., the whole train sequence), but in the end there simply isn't anything innovative about the single player game.

    The second game in this box, the multiplayer Splinter Cell, is as bold as the single-player is mediocre. [July 2004, p.60]

    Graphics: 9.6 Sound: 9.8 Gameplay: 9.0 Fun/Story: 9.0

    My first Splinter Cell game and for that reason perhaps the rating is a little higher. I really loved the espionage feeling, the water and light effects, the infiltration in Komodo (Indonesia) it´s very well done, ... Nice game.
