Splinter Cell Essentials review

AT A GLANCE
  • Gives you a peek at Splinter Cell 5!
  • Get a taste of Double Agent right now!
  • Michael Ironside rules as Sam Fisher
  • Awful camera system
  • Painful save and load times
  • No dynamic lighting on PSP


This makes combat virtually impossible, seeing as how you can’t turn to see where your enemy is if he steps out of your view. Furthermore, while we applaud the ability to save anytime, the fact that saving and loading easily takes upwards of 30 seconds every time means you’ll be hesitant to do so. That, coupled with the tricky camera, will make you reluctant to try and sneak through a level non-lethally, and instead be tempted to just off everyone you find. This goes a bit against Sam’s established personality, and it’s also a turn-off for stealth purists who like to play ninja-style.
