  1. If we've learned anything with time, it's that it is much better to be pleasantly surprised by a budget title than to be underwhelmed by a full-price title, and Cold War is a pleasant surprise indeed.
  2. Even with the laughable A.I., the game is under a twenty spot, and is quite enjoyable if you love stealth, action, and gadgets.
  3. Although it is not as sophisticated on some levels as the continuing adventures of Sam Fisher, it does stand on it's own as a fine addition to the "sneak and destroy" genre of games.

    An enjoyable take on the stealth action genre. Obviously not at the same level as Splinter Cell but a valuable addition none the less.
