A confident but mediocre debut 0

Starting with the triple punch of Metal Gear Solid, Thief, and Tenchu in 1998, stealth slowly became a subgenre made possible by advanced lighting but it wasn't until Splinter Cell that it felt like it had a future. Splinter Cell continues to resonate with action and third-person shooter fans due to its elegant presentation, fluid action, and grounded military atmosphere. Returning to the original for the first time after many years, I was surprised to discover how many key elements of the serie...

Taking stealth into the modern era, SC is great all around game. 0

Defining a new line of stealth action games, Ubisoft’s release of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell for the pc on February 17, 2003, busted out onto the scene with a lot of enthusiasm from fans awaiting the release.

Although your enemies look a bit bland, Sam Fisher himsel...

Despite the fact that SC came out of nowhere. It's still one of t 0

To this day, I still don't know what got me into Splinter Cell. Was it the fact that I like spy stuff, or maybe the intriguing modern storyline? I don't know, but Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is still one of my favorite action games. You play as splinter cell agent Sam Fisher, splinter cells are so secret that if they get killed, their files are erased and they end up looking like they practically never existed. The story involves the newly elected president of Georgia (the country, not the state)...
