5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing graphics and immersive gameplay November 26, 2002
Platform for Display:Xbox
This latest Tom Clancy game has amazing graphics and some incredibly detailed body movements. It takes the spy game genre to an entirely new level!
I'm a big spy-game fan in general, and we have all 3 major platforms, so I went into Splinter Cell curious about all the hype. It's gotten incredible ratings from several magazines. I have to say, after having played it, those ratings were well deserved.
First, the graphics. The amount of work that went into graphics on this game is just phenomonal. Your character goes through smoke and fire, through darkness and bright neon light, under shaded lattices, through light coming through venetian blinds, through hazy curtains, through punch-hole metalwork. It is just STUNNING. You really begin to believe that this is a movie and you're controlling the outcome.
The other senses aren't neglected. Sound is KEY and you are constantly aware of how much noise you're making while you're sneaking around. The speed at which you move, your crouching, your stance, all affect how well people notice you. Unlike other games which blast you with rock music, in this one you're so attuned that you hear the little movements of your own feet as you creep, or the movements of guards walking down the hallway.
The animation on the character is fantastic. Press up against a wall. Climb a fence and roll over the top. Slide down a wire. Go hand-over-hand across a pipe, and pull up your feet to get more traction. Slide down a ladder, jump up a wall and do a split to stay there, unseen. The way the character moves is just amazing. Some serious work was put into this effort, and it pays off.
The gameplay missions are logical and draw you along into the story. It's not exactly a ring-through-the-nose drag like other games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best stealth action game to date, hands down. January 24, 2003
Platform for Display:Xbox
While it lacks universal appeal, Splinter Cell (SC) is an outstanding game that provides an experience on the Xbox that no other game can. You take the role of Sam Fisher, an veteran special forces commando called out of retirement for a new, experimental intelligence initiative of the NSA. The storyline is classic Tom Clancy (as is Fisher, Clancy readers may wonder why they didn't just name the character Clark and be done with it). As far as simulating this type of experience goes, SC is remarkably well done but what will really determine if you like the game is whether or not the core concept appeals to you.
If you're considering purchasing SC then you've doubtlessly already read about how fantastic the graphics and sound are. Believe the hype. The music and sound effects are wonderfully immersive and create the sort of tense atmosphere this game needs. The lighting engine is nothing short of revolutionary. There are some clipping issues (dead bodies can poke through walls) but it is difficult to pick on the game for this considering how much power must be devoted to the best real time light and shadows ever in a game.
The gameplay in SC is excellent. The conrtrols and camera are intuitive and easy to use. Fisher can perform an extensive variety of physical actions to interact with his environment. Sometimes it is difficult to get him to do exactly what you want because there are so many options available and so many objects to interact with but practice and experience will solve most of these problems.
It is important to be clear that SC is not a shooter in the classic sense. Certianly, you will encounter some scenarios in which the only real course of action is a full blown fire fight with automatic wepaons, but they are rare.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best single player game to come out in years June 15, 2003
By A Customer
Platform for Display:Xbox
Splinter Cell is quite simply the best single player game to be released on any platform or console in years. This review will be based on the XBox release.
GRAPHICS
Splinter Cell is widely regarded as one of the few games to fully leverage the superior graphics rendering engine of the XBox because the visuals and level of detail are astounding. UBI Soft invested a great deal of time in the little things such as lighting and the movement drapery and it shows. The only minor flaw is an occasional "clipping" glitch, where the heads of bodies you are tucking into corners will appear to go through walls. Other than that, this game is beautiful.
SOUND
The soundtrack for this game is impressive. Music plays softly and in the background when you are stealthy, fast paced and loud when you are on the run. Additionally, the character voices are well cast, including Michael Ironside (of Total Recall and Starship Troopers fame) as Sam Fisher, the protagonist. Sound is a critical part of this game, as it is one of the ways in which you can be detected, and here again UBI Soft does not disappoint. Conversations vary in volume according to distance, floorboards creek, and Sam grunts and breathes like a real person when performing the physically taxing tasks.
GAMEPLAY
Gameplay is incredible. Sam is capable of performing numerous moves, all of which are very intuitive to execute. Your movement is carefully controlled by the amount of pressure you put on the thumbstick; a little bit and you tiptoe quietly through the darkness, a lot and you're running from trouble. Advanced moves include dropping down on bad guys, a split jump (where Sam dues the splits between two walls), and interrogation/human shield, where you can sneak up unsuspecting bad guys and grab them from behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is Truly "Stealth Action Redefined"
"Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell," developed and published by Ubisoft, almost single-handedly revolutionized the stealth genre and founded a brand new niche entirely.
