Amazon.co.uk Review

Sam Fisher, the covert agent who makes Solid Snake look like Basildon Bond, is back in Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, the all-new sequel to the 2003 hit. Once again it's down to Fisher alone to rid the world of terrorists and various other enemies of Uncle Sam.

At first glance Pandora Tomorrow looks pretty much identical to its predecessor--which is to say it's one of the most graphically impressive video games ever made, with a particularly nice line in atmospheric lighting and insanely detailed environments. It's true that in straight gameplay terms things haven't changed very much, although there has been a concerted effort to make things less linear this time around--which was one of the main complaints levelled against the first game. Now though, there are multiple solutions to almost every situation you find yourself in, and this isn't limited merely to a simple choice between wading in guns blazing or sitting in a corner for 10 minutes being stealthly.

There are also a few new moves and gadgets to play with but probably the most important new feature for Pandora Tomorrow is the multi-player mode. This is no simplistic death-match mode but instead pits spies (using the single-player game's standard third-person viewpoint) against mercenaries (using a more traditional first-person view) where the completely different abilities and weapons of each team makes for some highly engaging and inventive action. This immediately stops Pandora Tomorrow from being yet another mission disc sequel and alone justifies the price of admission. --David Jenkins

I wasn't a fan of the original Splinter Cell. I liked the graphics and the ideas behind it but the reality of the game failed to live up to the concept - it was hyper-linear, only allowing the player to walk a pre-defined path using exactly the moves they wanted you to use exactly when they wanted you to use them, rather than give you the freedom of motion to decide how you would like to approach a situation.
In the sequel, they've taken a note out of the games such as Hitman 2, Deus Ex and Thief by offering more routes to objectives, although the paths once taken are still very linear, and they've diversified the gadgets/moves yet again (with a very neat SWAT turn) that further improves the gameplay. The AI seems a lot more realistic and a lot less to notice you the instant you step from the shadows.
The music and ambience in the game is kept unobtrusive while in stealth and short bursts of adrenaline music when you're discovered or suddenly engage in combat. It works well with the overall atmosphere.
All this and with the jungle a welcome change of scenery from the entirely urban affair of the original (although it is in urban areas where Sam's abilities shine), the sequel is a pretty interesting game - and we haven't even touched on the multiplayer yet.
Man, oh man, the multiplayer is an innovation. An amazing feat, quite a daring gamble, and a tremendous addition to the multiplayer canon and will be played for a long time - hopefully with all sorts of mods or add-ons if Ubi release tools for mod-capability. They have created an amazing franchise opportunity here and with this exploding as it is on the net, I can assume they will see the profitability in this exploit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch for minimum spec! 14 April 2004
By A Customer
This is a fantastic follow up to the original splinter cell. I bought it online as soon as it was released. i would advise anyone thinkin about buying it to check the minimum spec requirements. It's a gorgeous loooking game and needs a monster of a graphics card to function well. just a word of advise. otherwise - awesome game!

5.0 out of 5 stars heavy going___but awesome stuff 21 April 2004
By A Customer
just when you thought the shadows were safe... the rules have changed. and so have some of the voices; the weapons; gadgets; moves; soundtrack; graphics and of course that heart-pounding multi-player mode.
this is infintely more subtle than the original splinter cell - the plot is less obvious at first; some flawed systems have been revamped - ubisoft have listened to the few criticisms that the first game got, and my have they made a beautiful game. there really is nothing in the games world like the opening level's sunset on the coast or the multiplayer's endless creeping and dodging the enemy. nothing comes close to it. but perhaps there's a problem here. maybe it's become a little too distant??
the plot is far less linear, the surroundings are yet more roamable, the action scenes are more fun, but there's something not quite tangible that affects you by playing it. its rather eerie and solemn at times, full of anticipation and suspense. in some ways its a good thing, but one can't but help ponder a little while playing through it.
oh, and there's 3 less levels in this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy just got classier 21 Mar 2004
By A Customer
The orginal Splinter Cell was a very good game that had a few problems. In this new game these problems are ironed out and the tension is cranked up. New moves and weapons are added to the package and the storyline has become more cinematic, without being too intrusive. The graphics have been improved and there are new sight modes (thermal, night,etc). The A.I. has been greatly improved and so has the gameplay. The levels have become less linear giving the player many options to get through a level. There is also a brand new multiplayer option which has been superbly done. It includes mercernaries in a first person view against shadow teams who are like Sam Fisher. This mode works brilliantly but can only be played with a few players. With nine new levels this has plenty to keep any gamer busy.
Great for any newbies to this genre and great for any experienced stealth players. Far better than it's predecessor and will thrash the likes of Metal Gear Solid any day. One of the best games of the year! Five stars:*****

5.0 out of 5 stars Online awe 5 May 2004
I played this first as a single player, and although an improvement on the original Splinter Cell, it is not dissimilar. You do however get a wider range of solutions to problems ie shoot everyone/ shoot some/ shoot none and just be very very sneaky. The game really comes into its own when you play on the multi player level over the internet. I stopped playing games over the internet when broadband took over, and as I don't live in a broadband area, my 56K modem meant that I moved so slowly in relation to everyone else that I would be decimated by other lower ping (broadband)players. Pandora Tomorrow has a 56K area, which means that we all play at the same sort of ping, and thus can have a really good competition. I should knock off a star for the fact that I know spend too long playing on the computer.

In response to an earlier review - It's only the MX card it won't work on. It works on other geforce 4 cards.
If you liked the original you'll like this one. However, expect to use quickload an awful lot. (unless you are a super stealthy player) The baddies have much better sight and hearing this time round. And they are not predictable. They may behave differently each time you reload.
