Chaos Theory is the best Splinter Cell game yet. I expect them to get better as they progress. One of the best things about this game is the adrenalin rush you get as you hang from a pipe with your pistol, drawing a bead on your enemy; knowing you may have only one breath left before he turns and sees you.

Another good thing about this game is the length of the missions.

The other two had long missions but save points every twenty feet. In Chaos Theory you can save it when ever you want and the average amount of checkpoints is three (3) per mission.

The videos are also a heck of alot better than the other two and

the plot is so amazing it's hard to get to the bottom of it.

It's nothing like the first game where nothing suprised you because you knew you had to kill Nikoladze and recover the Ark.

But in CT the amount of work put into the story rivals spy movies like the Mission Impossible series.

The graphics are also the best I have ever seen. Everything looks absolutely real not just in the buildings but also outdoors like when you go to wartorn South Korea it actually looks like people have firing missile and dropping bombs into


The single player mode alone is worth the 20 or 30 bucks you'll pay for the game because Sam Fisher is still the best guy out there. You also get training videos where he instructs you on stealth basics, cool moves and fire and movement. In the other two games you only had the SC-20K with stuff like Sticky Shockers and other non-lethal ammo. But in CT you get the Foregrip attachment for use during prolonged fire. You get the Shotgun attatchment which is deadly from anything up to 20 meters or so. Really good for room clearing.

And here is one really bad thing: the scope from the last two games is gone it's been replaced by a 1.5x scope and the only compensation is you get the Sniper attatchment but even that has it's drawbacks because it makes a heck of a loud noise.

The co-op isn't as good as I had hoped because you only get sticky cameras and you SC-20K is single-fire only. But moves like the Tomoe Nage where you throw your partner through the air and he hits your enemy. There isn't any blood even though the ESRB rating says so and the language is no problem.

Nothing you don't hear in school anyway.

So, all in all, this the best game out there at the moment so go ahead and buy it. DON'T rent it. It only ruins it just buy it.

I would highly recommend this to anyone 11-25 years old. It has thebest graphics for gamecube I've ever seen, and it's the only game I have that I'm not bored of yet, besides Perfect Dark, but that's for the Nintendo 64.

Just a few of the features of this amazing piece of work are:

-Good AI

-Interesting ragdoll physics

-Multiple options for the same thing (such as OCP, shooting, or turning off lights, killing or knocking out enemies, etc)

-Creatively designed levels with more than one path

-More than 10 tools used to accomplish your missions

-Primary, secondary, opportunity, and bonus objectives contribute to the replayability

This game is really good for coming back and playing again and again, trying to find secrets, alternate paths, bonus objectves, and trying to raise the mission rating.

This is just undoubtedly one of the best gamecube games out there. Buy it now. NOW.

what i like the most about this game is the very cool stealth moves that have never been seen before in all the other splintercell games. the graphics are very good too but half the time you cant see the best of them because your in the dark. overall chaos theory is a very good game that is way better than what you pay for it.

So the Gamecube has a lot of strengths for it. It has strong hardware and good load times. It does have weaknesses and it shows some in Chaos Theory. First, memory is an issues because it takes up a lot on the standard 251 block card. I'd really suggest the 1019 block card to comfortably play any Splinter Cell game. Second, the controller lacks buttons and functions of the other versions. Because of that, there are Z button combinations to remember. With no analog clicking, that means the function of that was moved too. The graphics are a little better than the PS2, but not the Xbox.
In conclusion the game's good, but controller function cripples it.

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is one of the most fun games I've ever played. It is by far in the top end of the Splinter Cell series, although the first two were really good. I love the option to either knock out, or kill your opponent when you grab them from behind. I like sneaking up on enemies, and then just leaving them out cold. The graphics are insane and really build up an atmosphere of creepiness. The settings are all well done, with lots of detail and sensory information. It makes you feel like a ghost. Never seen, but felt right before the subject is knocked out. Good, clean fun.

I honestly love the game way TOO much & would give a five star rating.. but I only got the 1st disc & never the 2nd. so by the way, Video Games Galore, ya'll are real sleep on a simple order can't even remember to put the 2nd disc too in the box, ya'll really need to get your your s*** together, just saying. Anyways, really good game, love the Splinter Cell series, they only get better!

Get this game! I havent played Pandora Tomorrow, but I have played the first game in the series and there is no comparison. complex, challengeing-(spelling?)- missions, awesome stealth kills and knock outs, this game has it all. The controls i found (and am finding still) a little hard, but it is a great game.

I've only played SC, SC Pandora tomorrow, and SC Chaos Theory, and this is by far my favorite. Not only is the story better, but the cutscenes, in game character movements, and gameplay mechanics are so much better than previous installments. Plus the ragdoll effect is fun.

If you guys are gonna sell used stuff then you need to make sure it works. The game did not work and money was wasted. I told my son not to get in the habbit of buying stuff used if we can't check the product.
