5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing and challenging, 2 April 2003
This review is from: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell (PS2) (Video Game)
This is a great game for anyone who likes stealth and espionage. Creeping around embassies, CIA headquarters, burning buildings and even an oil rig, the game play is varied and challenging with a progressive learning curve.
A lot of the time, you're sneaking around and often, triggering alarms or causing a fatality can end the mission, so you have to be careful. Fortunately, there are no rules against bashing people over the head, then hiding the body in a store cupboard which is a particularly satisfying way of disposing of the enemy.
The game has a lot of elements of MGS2 but loses some of the more frustrating aspects - you can hang over the edge of a wall or ledge indefinitely without losing your grip, and unconscious enemies don't jump back to life and shoot you. There are also some pretty nifty moves, such as zooming down zip cords or my particular favourite - jumping up and wedging yourself between two walls with your legs (from where, you can launch a devestating attack on your enemy below).
The game is thoroughly absorbing, with the checkpoints and save points well spaced so you don't get /too/ frustrated when you die in between. If I had any criticism, it's that perhaps the gameplay is slightly too linear - there doesn't seem to be a lot of replay value (like MGS' dog tags or Hitman's 'Silent Assassin' rating) but it will probably take experienced gamers a few solid days to complete.
