4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album...But, 19 July 2007

Splinter cell is a great game, I would defiantly recommend buying it, and the graphics are superb with no glitches and all in gloriously detailed environments.

The sound is fully atmospheric and the music can give you a good idea of what's going to happen, i.e. danger coming up, when it's safe and so on. The gameplay scores highly as well keeping you hooked throughout the life of the game.
However there are a few problems, firstly I'd say the camera angles, the camera can be a little clumsy at times, getting you killed because from… Read more
