While some preventative measures for hair-pulling and wall-punching may be necessary, the game has first-class production values, some of the coolest stealth techniques and gadgets yet, and fantastic level design.
An Xbox classic from 2002. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell plays like a realistic version of Metal Gear Solid. At the time of release, it was the most graphically advanced video game on console. Featuring stunning lighting and shadow effects, "Splinter Cell" was the first true showcase of the Xbox's graphical power. Visually, It still holds up exceptionally well in 2019. The stealth gameplay is equally impressive. While it might be too slow for some, the game arguably surpasses MGS and Hitman in stealth tactics. As NSA field operative Sam Fisher, players can utilize numerous abilities, weapons and gadgets. While there may be too many trial-and-error segments, this is one of the best action titles from the early 2000's. I would rate it with a 9.3 out of 10
Splinter Cell was one of the great games from 20 years ago. I noticed that this game was on the backward compatible list for the Xbox One, and decided to give it a whirl. It was a great decision, as the game was brilliant back then, and is still fantastic today!
I was amazed just how revolutionary it was for a 2002 game. Sam Fischer rocks!
Sneak mode is awesome with lovely use of shadow/lighting
Heaps of gadgets to attach to the weapons
Incredible storyline- Chinese, Burma, Russian Republics- just like the real world today
Michael Ironside voice acting
Nice challenge to beat on first playthrough- easy on second attempt
Combat is really good for a stealth game
Good amount of check points to save frustration
No widescreen support for modern gaming
AI soldiers have repetitive patterns and voice acting
Jump button can throw you in frustrating directions
Game Content- 10 out of ten
Fun Factor- 8 out of ten
Overall score- 9
When Tom Clancy´s fresh franchise Splinter Cell was released in 2003, i was totally hyped. With this game you get the full agent stealth action and a real competitor to the Metal Gear Solid series. Everything from graphics to gameplay were stunning. And this game can still hold up today. Get it for thrilling hours of high suspense! I played it on PC too, but the Xbox version is by far the best!
Découragé à l'époque par la difficulté, je l'avais mis de côté pour finalement le ressortir du placard 8 ans plus ****...! son gameplay est resté fidèle à lui-même : toujours aussi rigide, toujours aussi "hardcore". Ce n'est définitivement pas un jeu pour noobs ou autres wannabies... de l'infiltration pure et dure sans concession aucune.
Finalement c'est parfois crispant, souvent trop scripté mais toujours passionnant. Les graphismes et jeux de lumière restent étonnants et la VF est au sommet avec la voix de Daniel (Schwarzy-Batou) Beretta. Les épisodes suivants (à partir du 3) ont mis de l'eau (bienvenue) dans leur vin mais cet épisode fondateur a malgré tout bien vieilli.
The games aged roughly I want to love it but the games so frustrating that i cant. Its still not bad just frustrating to play a lot of the time if this version had quick saves id probably be more forgiving and give it a 7
