Anna Grimsdottir: Before you can tap into the BIOS you'll need to open the casing.

Sam Fisher: I didn't bring my crowbar.

Anna Grimsdottir: Whatever. Crowbars are for geeky video game characters.

Sam Fisher: Bad news.
Guard: I knew there were ninjas around here!
Sam Fisher: What?
Guard: Yeah, you've gotta be a ninja. How else could you sneak up and grab me like that?
Sam Fisher: Listen, I don't know what...
Guard: Wow! A real, live, ninja! I can't believe it!

USEFUL INFO FIRST: in order to activate Steam interface, add a shortcut in Steam to splintercell3.exe and play from it. You won't track the time spend on it, but who cares about that?

Now my review about Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory... That's a long ♥♥♥ name for a video game!

When you think about stealth games, a few names come to mind: Hitman, Thief, Splinter Cell and MGS to an extent.
Hailed as the best games in the series most of the time, this review is based on a game I consider to be the pinnacle in that genre, along with Hitman Blood Money.

First of all, don't let the release date fool you. Chaos Theory hasn't aged one bit. It still looks good today, the mechanics are still top notch and mostly, it has tons of features you'd expect from a modern game, without all the flaws you can guess.

I don't know if it's just me, but stealth in FPS view always felt awkward and unpractical to me. Good thing this one has a third person view, have fun looking behind walls! It also features various ways to kill/knock out: whether you'd rather do it in close-combat, shoot them from a distance, pull them from a platform or even jumping onto them.

The environments are a bit varied, going from a jungle-like maze to the top of a lighthouse, cracking down the vault of the bank or retrieve information in city full of people not knowing any better... or even a god damn submarine if that's what you like. Granted, it's mostly close-quarters.

Storywise, it's nothing revolutionnary but it fits well. You follow a linear line up to the bad guys and get em down one by one up until the end. Politicals, bureaucrats, bankers... they all wanted a piece of that cake.

The OST ranges from forgettable to annoying, especially when you do a quick takedown and have to stand a minute or so of "ACTION MUSIC" for no reason. If there's one downside to the game, this may as well be the one. Nothing too irritating but it certainly ain't the soundtrack of Hitman: Blood Money.

Though the game is a rather serious one (shouldn't come up as a surprise considering the protagonist is named Sam), I can garantee you a handful of chuckles to be had. Whether it comes from a stupid mistake you did and alerted all the guards, or one of those on the verge of wetting his pants while being interrogated with a huge knife up his throat.

SO DO I RECOMMEND THIS GAME? YOU BET YOUR ♥♥♥ I DO! Did I mention it also features a COOP CAMPAIGN?
It lacks one thing though. Uplay isn't there. Oh wait that's a good thing!
