So you may have seen my review of Splinter Cell Conviction. If you haven't, I hate the game. I mostly hate the game because this one is BEAUTIFUL! Oh ma gawd this game is fantastic! The AI is clever, especially at this time in gaming. The game looks rather good, not that graphics are the main focus and never should be. The stealth is fantastic, masterfully done. Finding different paths to bypass guards is really cool. Or making a distraction and hiding in shadows as the investigate, then moving along or knocking them out. I feel awesome. I feel like frikin' James bond, but cooler and better with less sex. The story isn't normal Tom Clancy standards, but not as bad as Call of duty (which is just TERRORISTS TERRORISTS SHOOT SHOOT BLAH!). I highly recommend this game to anyone. I'd give it a 10/10!

This game is a true masterpiece, and one of the few games which laid the base of Third person stealth genre buy it only if you are a true hardcore stealth fan, this is not just another run-and-gun game where u can go guns ablazing, stealth is your only option...
Story is good, Gameplay is awesome, the best thing about this is Michael Ironside's Voice Acting as Sam Fisher...
Overall : 9.5/10

One of the last real stealth games, remains true through-out and does a great job never to go the route of turning into a sloppy dumbed down shooter with optional stealth, like 95% of stealth games do today!

The controls are decent, although few frustrating hiccups can occur, as you get more accustomed to the game these hiccups happen less and less frequently.

The graphics haven't aged a day, they look incredible and even more so when you take into consideration that this was released in 2002!

The sound is great and the dialogue is awesome, to sit in the shadows and listen to your enemies cheesy chatter is entertaining and very humourous.

I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys stealth games

While it pales in comparison to its franchise's third entry, the original Splinter Cell is still a very entertaining experience, with an engrossing plot and oodles of gadgets to match. If you played this after playing later entries like Double Agent or Chaos Theory, or (god help you) Conviction or Blacklist, you might encounter some difficulty getting used to this game's quirks and its overall non-streamlined nature compared to later entries. Give this game a little patience, however, and it will reward you with a rich story and a satisfying stealth experience. However, if you want a more refined and near-perfect stealth experience, you might want to pass this game up in favor of Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.
