an elite super spy, fighting to save freedom, but it isn’t
always easy! You’ll find yourself shadowing the enemy to penetrate
terrorist hideouts and using all your skills and wits to survive.
moonlit nights provide cover as you avoid detection, jump roofs,
and escape exploding buildings. Keys to tracking down the enemy
are secrets that you get only from your contacts. Your mission:
to seek and retrieve intel while staying as stealthy as possible!
NSA (National Security Agency) has issued forth the program “Third
Echelon”–an operation using elite teams of spies called “Splinter
Cells” to gather information about possible threats to the
United States of America.
assume the role of senior NSA operative Sam Fisher; a bulky ex-Navy
SEAL and former CIA agent, who can kick any terrorist’s ass! As
you can imagine, he can do split jumps between walls and end up
suspended 5-6 feet up! Playing Sam, you get a variety of different
gadgets and weaponry. From guns to fiber optics, you must use them
all correctly and with precision. For example: on some missions
you won’t want to shoot everybody you see, because it may be necessary
to interrogate your captive for vital information or drag him to
a retina scanner to penetrate restricted areas.
starting, you’ll first have to get special training for your
upcoming missions. The whole of the game is dependent on you keeping
your actions slow and concealed, because one slip-up can lead to
your demise. A lighted hallway could give you away, so you’ll
want to get in the habit of killing the lights (with your gun or
course). When traveling from shadow to shadow, you’ll also
notice the little graphical ingenuities, like filtered lighting
or fire. As you use your weapon, you’ll notice one of the
game’s best features. You can feel the accuracy and the camera
does a great job of working in your favor and switches to a first-person-like
shooter view. You can move around and shoot at the same time–and
you’re going to need the ammo action because the terrorists are
many and are ruthless.
is great fun and very interactive. For example: if you shoot at
just any ol’ inanimate object, you’ll get to see the
bullet mark. And if you feel the need to look under a door or two,
just switch on to your fiber optics and it will look like your looking
through a real camera!
game boasts a Teen rating–there’s lots of action and suspense,
but it’s not bloody! (for all of you rightly concerned parents out
there). "Splinter Cell" is dynamic and intriguing–a must
have for your XBox library. Head on over to the official Site HERE.
