Jul 11, 2012I give it a 10! Yes it's overrated, but it's based on the fun value. And it's sentimental as I'm a huge fan of the first three games on PC. If you're like me, don't worry about the average ratings, you'll love playing Sam on your wide screen TV with a game pad, for all three games, especially Chaos Theory.… Collapse
Aug 1, 2012These were some of the hottest games of its time, remember that the versions were the best PC and X-Box, and the PS2 and Gamecube versions graphically below.
Glad to know that these HD versions were made over the PC versions, so I could only play on PS2 in the past, I can take advantage of these masterpieces in their best quality at last!… Expand
Oct 11, 2011I was a BIG fan of the Splinter Cell Series then, and I am still one now. It's great to be able to go back and re-play these awesome games for only $39.99. The graphics could have been upgraded a little bit better, especially the cut-scenes, but over all, still a great remake!! PLEASE release Conviction for PS3!… Expand
Oct 3, 2011While it's obvious that not a lot of care was put into updating the graphics and making it HD especially with the first two, and the frame rate drops as well. But still the gameplay holds up really well today as it's still just as fun as ever to sneak in the shadows and stalk on your prey unseen. Throw in some trophies support and 3D for thoes who have the tv and you have good collection of a great series. But the omission of double agent and the fact you can get all 4 on ps2/xbox for a lot cheaper is a factor to keep in mind.… Expand
May 12, 2012Certainly a lot of value in these three games - that said, the remastering could have been better. I encountered frame-rate problems on the first two titles to the point where it was close to unplayable - due to the developer's decision to do them in a resolution of 1080p, instead of 720p such as the third title, which would have been more sufficient. The narrative on all of the games were lackluster as well, and I found some of the endings to come out of nowhere, leaving me unsatisfied when compared to my excitement leading up to them. After a while the plot and the gameplay became quite repetitive as well, with few new gameplay elements. I also found myself using the Night Vision goggles most of the time because it was impossible to see anything otherwise due to the dark level-design that surrounded me. Moreover, all of the cutscenes were of poor quality, and although they got better for each game, it was obvious the developers tried to cover up the lack of detail in the animation by darkening everything - half the time I could hardly tell what was happening visually. Furthermore, the audio had its share of issues, whereas I couldn't hear the dialogue a lot of the time because the music or ambience was so overpowering - on some of the games this was not adjustable in the options either. And at certain points I was on the verge of having a heart attack upon setting of mines in the game, even more so than Deus Ex: Human Revolution, because the volume was at least twice as high than the rest of the audio production. All in all a decent collection, and great for those such as myself who had yet to play the games in their entirety. That said, there were a lot of missed opportunities with this collection, and Ubisoft could have done so much more. Compared to other PS3 remasters in recent memory, this felt quite subpar.… Expand
