Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is an action stealth game, and the third game in the series. This game was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game had multiple release dates on multiple platforms, with the PC version released on March 28th, 2005. The story follows NSA agent Sam Fisher once again is called to action following North Korea and China blocking Japan’s trade routes across the Yellow Sea.
Graphics-If there’s one word that describes the graphics, it’s flawless! Everything about the graphics is a step up from the first two games, and the character models look more refined and presentable. The inclusion of ragdoll physics also helps out.
Sound-Michael Ironside returns once again to provide the voice for Sam Fisher, and the man is a genius at Sam’s voice. The voice acting also sounds more natural, and the accents don’t sound as acted out.
Gameplay-Gameplay as a whole remains the same, with the emphasis on using stealth, but now the option to use assault is included. If the player decides on using assault, be forewarned; as this will cause the enemies to be more aware of Sam’s presence like before, but now detection will award the enemy with protection (like ballistic vests and helmets). What’s also new is that now Sam has to watch his steps this time around, as now Sam has an aural monitor equipped. Another new feature is that objectives can be cancelled, if circumstances have been met. The multiplayer returns, and now co-op is included in this game.
Improvements-The improvements this game came with really gives the player more creative freedom as to how they want to play. If they want to use stealth, they can. If they want to use assault, that option is open to them also.
Overall-This game is a step up from the first two, and with more options, this game is worth playing and replaying. You won’t be disappointed.
