Pure Legacy action in a stunning Complete Box, an awesome cover and Sam Fisher.
There is nothing better than a Legacy Splinter Cell experience, a true classic through and through and the best stealth game ever.
The Box comes with the bonus missions for SC 1, the bonus Coop missions for Chaos Theory (patch 1.5) and the insurgency DLC for Conviction, completing the experience in every way!

Splinter Cell is one of my favorite game-series together with Hitman, Thief and Metal Gear Solid. I have played all the games on Xbox and Xbox 360 and since I'm a Pc gamer now i want to buy this one too.

This is basically the Michael Ironside Quadtrilogy. He's the voice actor for Sam Fisher. This means the latest installment 'Blacklist' isn't concluded in the package. The games are all great. Conviction is the my least favorite but still is a good one. The first four games are instant classics. The product however is ... well it's not without risks...

First let's start with the original Splinter Cell.
No real installation problems, but you have to install the game manually because it didn't work when i pressed 'install the game' after i popped my cd in the drive. MAKE SURE you run it as an administrator on your Pc on Windows ME. Put the shadow details on high and you have a smooth running game.

Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow
Installation was a mess. They put the original and the second one in 1 disc. When i completed it , it didn't start. I noticed there wasn't a Splinter Cell2.exe file in the offline folder. I wanted to uninstall the game again but it didn't work on the installation screen so I used control panel. When I wanted to install the game again there was no 'install' button on the installation screen. Only 'uninstall' and 'play'. So this game didn't work for me...

Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
No problems at all. Runs amazing!!

Splinter Cell Double Agent
Installation was fast and good but the game chrashes sometimes so you have to launch it again. But i completed the game so it was no real problem.

Splinter Cell Conviction
What a mess this was. I though this would be the easiest to install because it's a recent game. No, after searching i found out that I had to delete and uninstall my Physx Nvidia Driver. Now the game runs very good.

Verdict;
Like I said, great games but it was a mess to run them all good and smooth. Pandora Tomorrow still has issues. I bought the game seperate to see if I can install it on my laptop. I have some information about the game though. IT STILL HAS THE SHADOW AND LIGHT BUGS SO THERE IS NO FIX. That means that there are places in the game where there are lights above you but you aren't aware of it because there is a shadow underneath the light source. You can only see it by using the stealth meter.

3/5

Splinter Cell franchise games have long been a favourite of mine, but alas the original games went missing a few years ago during a house move. I was really excited to play them all again.
I have had a little trouble during the install process as some of the discs did not autoplay, and then had issues with my graphics card which I assume is far more advanced than was the original spec.
Eventually tho I got all the discs installed and am currently enjoying my retro play thru again.

Over the top package with all the spliter cell games so far before "Splinter Cell Blacklist". The games are all updated and they have no problems running even on modern systems. All games are in multiple languages.
If you're a Splinter Cell fan you can't miss this one...

A great collection of the best series of stealth games I have ever played. All 5 games installed very quickly and easily and play brilliantly, I would definitely recommend this product to any video game fans, as for this price you cannot go wrong

With some reviews saying they could not get all the games to work, I was tentative about buying this, and thankfully, they all installed easily. The product arrived before it was estimated to ( comes with 5 disks, and 3 game keys, 1 for SC 1 to 3, and 2 for SC and 5 individually ).

I played up to chaos theory a while ago, and suddenly got an urge to play them again. They are still brilliant games - challenging but not totally frustrating. I highly recommend buying this collection.

Just avoid. Trust me. Reasons:
SC1 has compatibility problems but it can be fixed by editing some gamefiles.
SC2 is unplayable for stealth players, the game has light and shadow problems.
SC3 is fine.
SC4 is very very buggy, but playable.
SC5 is fine.

Ubisoft didn't bothered to fix the games before releasing them. A classic.

First time for me with splinter cell, all good except for the fact that the first game(splinter cell) will not load!! The other discs load without a problem though. I would have rated this set 5 stars but for this problem. Peter T.

I purchased this game pack to play on my new win 7 pc. Even though i had played through all the SC games before i did not own Splinter Cell Double Agent anymore nor did i own Conviction so this pack seamed like a great deal.

However there hasen't been any extra work done to accommodate these games. For example Splinter Cell 1 and Pandora tomorrow still doesn't have HD widescreen support, only 4:3 aspect ratio.

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory i didn't get to run unfortunately. Which i found sad since it's my favorite of the series.
Splinter Cell: Double Agent also didn't work

Splinter Cell: Conviction i got to work after ALLOT of back and forth with Ubisoft support

Its a good collection if you have the right PC to run it, Win Xp for the older games and Win Vista maybe for Double Agent and Win 7 for Conviction. If you have Win 8 i think all your gonna end up with is allot of problems.

If you have a PS3, Go with the HD trilogy pack instead. And if also have an xbox 360 get Double Agent and conviction for that.

very pleased with the price and delivery, although cannot get the first game to load, but pleased with the other games as they are old favourites, thanks amazon
time has passed and I honestly wish I had never bought this, 3 of the five games will not load, and amazon have some explaining to do putting frustrating games like this up for sale, I am not impressed, avoid unless you are a p.c. genius! and have hours of time to waste, the u-play rubbish that downloads for conviction takes ages and when it is done, asks for an activation key, which I cannot find.
