The year is 2008. As war erupts on the Korean Peninsula, Sam
Fisher must thwart the alliance between the Japanese Admiral,
a neurotic computer hacker, and the head of an international
paramilitary company in order to prevent the rekindling of
a massive world war in the Pacific...
first impressions of Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory were
not overly impressive. Due to the fact that we very rarely
get instruction manuals with review versions of games and
there wasn't a tutorial, that I could find anyway, starting
the first mission was extremely frustrating. Once I'd figured
out the controls I couldn't work out where I was supposed
to go and then, when I had worked that out, I was killed almost
instantly - and that seemed to happen a lot.
advice is read the instructions carefully and then spend some
time getting used to sneaking around and taking your enemies
out without using your weapons (either sneak up behind them
and render them unconscious, or run at them and knock them
for six). You don't get many bullets during your missions
and this tactic will also prepare you for later levels when
you are under orders not to kill the guards. Also pick items
up (rocks, bottles etc) and throw them at lights so that you
can creep around under cover of darkness.
you get used to the controls there is much fun to be had sneaking
around picking locks, hacking into computers and trying to
complete all of your objectives without drawing too much attention
to yourself. But I found getting to the extraction point at
the end of each level to be a real pain. This usually involved
me wandering around the level trying to work out where to
go (the map wasn't overly helpful and was really difficult
by far the best feature of this game is the co-op missions
that allows you and a friend (online or sitting in your front
room with you) to go on missions together. This adds a whole
other angle to the game play and you'll have great fun shouting
at each other to ensure you complete the missions successfully.
is one of the best games in its field... hell... probably
one of the best games available on the Xbox at this present
time. Go and buy!
