Anyways, having never played a Splinter Cell game before, I wasn't expecting much considering SC:CT was designed for the original XBOX/PS2. However, the game is able to run at my laptops native resolution [1680x945p] and actually looks pretty good despite being nearly 8 years old [I'm assuming this is a HD remastered version].
The gameplay can be describe as pure stealth: sneak into areas, silently takeout targets, complete objective, sneak out of area without being detected. These actions are capable through the use of night-vision and thermal goggles; which greatly complements the gameplay and stealth atmosphere. There's also a quicksave feature, which allows you to save the game before trying out new tactics; very helpful feature!
Very fun game! Highly recommended! Looking forward to playing SC:Double Agent next!
Additional Info: Downloaded from Amazon without any problems. This game is also DRM-FREE, which is a big benefit!
1) I'm not a guy with patience
2) Spy game requiring climbing, hiding, or not getting detected isn't my thing...
3) Well I do know who Michael Ironside from movies, but him voicing a character who's agile and...not old?
Chaos Theory is the first in Splinter Cell series that I've got, and so I'm not familiar skills and techniques...so...my first play through I thought I got the wrong game for me, although it's at 9 dollars...so not much of a loss.
Then I played again, knowing a bit more on how to hide in shadows/darkness and using the gadgets, and this is why I strongly recommend this game:
1) It's more enjoyable knowing to hide in darkness/shadow. Kinda of like fishing
2) Grabbing enemy is more constructive than shooting them in the head. It's not a first-person shooter.
3) Sam Fisher got hilarious lines when talking to others. Michael Ironside totally nailed it - no one can do better than him being Sam Fisher. Other voice actor/actress also excellent in their work.
An example (from wikiquotes) -
Sam broke into a bank to search for information and he interrogates a guard:
Sam: Alright, I don't know who you are, but this is private property.
Guard: What are you talking about? I've been working here for two years!
Sam: Prove it.
Guard: Prove it? Uh, okay. Well, the key code to the back doors, it--hey! Wait a minute! You're trying to trick me! You're the one who's not supposed to be here!
Sam: Alright, you caught me, I surrender. Oh wait! Instead, how about you tell me the keycode anyway and I won't be forced to hurt you?Read more ›

The best stealth game ever made hands down. Splinter cell backlist has nothing on this game and they are years apartPublished 11 months ago by Jacob Garcia
Great game that hasn't lost its appeal. Gets a bit repetitive in its scenarios, but nothing beats the hilarious dialogue between the main character and the bad guys he... Read morePublished on July 18, 2014 by Amazon Customer
Probably my favorite Splinter Cell game besides Double Agent, but then again the PC version for that one is kind of odd.Published on June 13, 2014 by James Navongsak
Game itself is fine, but no code to play online. Download only took a few minutes. Have had it installed for a few weeks, no problems.Published on November 26, 2013 by JMnTX
