I got this on the cheap while considering whether to get Splinter Cell Blacklist on Wii U. I'm a newcomer to the series, and had heard stuff like "Blacklist is the best Splinter Cell since Chaos Theory", which is the installment this game is based on.

I was quickly convinced that there is a lot to like about this series, so I went ahead and got Blacklist, and love it. Meanwhile, I also enjoy having a portable game in the series. It was an early 3DS title, so there is no circle pad pro support. That's fine, but it means that a handful of controls were mapped to the touch screen. It's mainly context-sensitive actions and equipment selection, so it never gets in the way, but it's a little less slick than playing on a dual-analog controller.

This game introduced projecting 3D text onto the game world for quick hints and mission reminders, which works so well that they reused it to great effect in Blacklist. Little details like that pull the game together nicely. It's not always quite as clear how or why you've been spotted, which for me means a lot of restarting from checkpoints, but trial and error is part of the process of a game like this.

The 3D effect is very slight in this game. Some people like that, but I prefer 3D to be "deep", as it is in Ocarina of Time or Snake Eater. Unlike Resident Evil Revelations, there is no option to increase the shallow 3D effect. It's not a big deal, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Thumbs up on the game, and at the time of writing it's a real bargain!

This is a low point in the series, for me at least. Without the circle pad pro, it is incredibly difficult to play this game, and the only thing that helps with that is the fact that the AI is so immeasurably stupid. This is a horrible remake of a great game, with very little of what made the original so good. I will not recommend this. Get yourself an Xbox and play the original, not this shoddy cash in.

Initially, my impressions of this game were not good, even buying it at a very cheap price. Having played it enough to finally finish it, which took a long time since I put it down for quite a while to enjoy a lot of other 3DS games, I have learned to appreciate Splinter Cell 3D enough to say that it's worth checking out. First, let's talk about the bad, just to help you understand what the problem was in the beginning...

There are many underwhelming aspects to this game that prevent it from living up to the console/PC version. Graphically, the environments are scaled down a lot, cutting back on lots of details that help you navigate and distinguish one area from another. Since I haven't done any direct comparisons on this, I'll just say that the graphics will leave you wishing they had optimized the port to look at least look as good as MGS3D in replicating the experience of the original. The enemy AI isn't very sophisticated, either. Enemies will listen for you to make noise, but often they ignore you until you're very close or directly exposed.

Since this is a handheld version, it's really hard to optimize the bright/dark ratio for the game. Some people will even be playing this on a sunny day outside, as crazy as that would be given how dark it would look, so I empathize with the devs on this one. Many say it's too dark, some will say too bright in places, but if you put your brightness at level 4 and you're playing indoors, it will look fine and the light levels will be better suited to how the game was designed to look.

The good news is that you can learn to look past the shortcomings and enjoy the mostly intact level structure and the superbly reproduced voice acting and sound.

Chaos Theory is my favorite of the franchise, so I was excited to find this re-release available for my brand new 3DS. I was equally excited that Amazon gave me $23 back when I returned it after the first time I played it. As I had read in reviews, the 3D is awful, especially in the cut scenes. Instead of re-rendering the cinematics in 3D, the characters are simply pulled out from the background, so you're looking at one flat image in front of another. Why even bother? Why not just show the cut scenes as they were originally intended? I could've gotten past this, but the lack of dual analog sticks makes this incarnation impossible to play. The four regular buttons (A/B/X/Y) substitute as the right analog stick, which is clunky and slow to respond. Because this uses virtually all the buttons, the original buttons are mapped to the touch screen. So, if an enemy comes up behind you by surprise, you have to very slowly turn around with the Y/A buttons, take your hand off of the controls to select your weapon from the touch screen, and then slowly try to aim with A/B/X/Y. "Fun" is not a word I would use to describe this. To top things off, the lighting effects (the most pivotal elements of the old Splinter Cell games) have been dumbed down or removed because they don't play well with the 3D, turning one of the best looking XBOX games into PSOne-esque garbage. Chaos Theory is a fantastic game; check it out if you have an XBOX/360/...Read more ›
