Billy is back! (And plays Splinter Cell),
By A Customer
This review is from: Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (Xbox) (Video Game)
This game is not so different to the first. The rules are more or less the same "do not be seen". However the maps are bigger and it is less crammed in. The first game started off quite tricky but the second goes up gradually and lets the player get to grips with the controls and the guards are easy to fool. The laser sight on the pistol really helps, especially for juicy head shots.
This game also defines the word "stealth" MGS was stealthy but you could go in guns blazing. So by the end it was no a stealth game at all. In Splinter Cell you must hide bodies and use your brain to win. You will not get far without it. Sam can also whistle to distract enemies so if there are no objects nearby use that. The alarm stages are different, instead of doing nothing theenemies increase the ammmount of armour they wear and they become harder to kill. Enemies work in groups and this provides realism.
The game requires mo background knowledge of the previous title. For MGS you would need a general background but this is different this game has no real connection to the first.
Overall a very enjoyable game to be enjoyed by everyone.
