Great games, a pain to install them all.
on 15 December 2014
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.
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.
