Product Description

Splinter Cell takes you into the world of Sam Fisher, a top-secret specialist agent who goes where no one dares, unseen and unheard. High-tech espionage doesn't get more realistic or deadly!

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell grants players access to the highest echelons of national security, where shadowy operatives have the freedom to do whatever it takes to safeguard America. The player controls Sam Fisher, a field operative of a secretive black-ops NSA subagency called Third Echelon. Sam Fisher is geared up to infiltrate high-security strongholds, seize critical intelligence, destroy threatening data, and neutralize the enemy--all without leaving a trace.

  • You'll play a special operative of Third Echelon, which tracks the flow of information around the world
  • Begin by tracking two agents who disappeared in a breakaway Soviet state, and use your stealth abilities to remain completely unseen
  • Use incredible gadgets, from a silenced pistols to lockpicks to a sticky camera, to get the information you need
  • Stealth is key here -- you must enter forbidden areas and gather crucial information without being detected
  • Break into police stations, crack open vaults, eavesdrop on conversations -- do whatever it takes to track this conspiracy across the world

  • Sam Fisher is the Ultimate Bad-A$$
    Splinter Cell is perhaps the best stealth game I have ever played. Many elements come together to make this game extremely enjoyable while keeping it quite realistic.

    This game is much more life-like and precise in its controls than Hitman 2. It is also edgier and has that "this could actually happen" feeling that MGS2 lacks.

    Let's look at the pros and cons:


    -Sweet grapics. The light and shadow are second to none.
    -Great sound. Voice acting is awesome and never out of place.
    -Very gritty and realistic.
    -Cool stealth moves. I love hiding bodies and sniping.
    -Just the right amount of gadgets to keep things realistic.
    -Sam Fisher is super cool.
    -Very detailed levels.
    -Very responsive game play.
    -Night-vision and heat-vision add great depth to certain levels.


    -Not a super-high replay value
    -The levels are very structured. This is not a bad thing in itself, I was just hoping for a more "free-roaming" type of game.

    Don't fool yourself, this game is not Hitman where you carry half a dozen weapons at a time, can blow people twenty feet in the air with a revolver and can shoot your way through levels "Rambo" style. All of these things are very fun of course, it's just that Splinter Cell is a much more realistic approach to stealth action and is a very rewarding game for those of you who like to think before you shoot. A must-have and I can't wait for the sequel....more info

  • Not Fun

    This game is incredibly linear with pretty much only one way to do things. In a stealth game that means doom in my opinion.

    Graphics are fine but that is really all it has going for it. The AI are completely unpredictable as people have said. Not in a, oh they're acting human unpredictable, but as in one person may be standing right next to you and not see you, while a person far away will be shooting at you.

    I find that the storyline is based around whatever level designs people decided on, rather then levels based around storyline. For example, the first level the guy directing you is telling you to stay off the street because you want to avoid the cops. But you really can't even get to the streets, they're all blocked off by gates. Then later on he takes it back after you travel rather randomly through a building and tells you you can go where ever. BUT you can only go on the streets due to the limitations of the game.

    And what is with the random ziplines?

    If you like stealth games I would seriously recommend purchasing either Thief 1 or Thief 2, or both. I cannot vouch for three as I have never played it, but the first two are pure gold in stealth. Thief Bundle: Thief 1 and 2...more info
  • Badass, but really frustrating
    I was watching my friend play this on the XBox one day, and it looked pretty cool. But it wasn't until the PS2 version came out that I finally decided to get it (considering I don't have an XBox to begin with). I'm glad I did, it's definitely one of the best games I own. And what's great about the PS2 version is that it has more cinematics and another level, something the other versions don't have, aside from a little better graphics. It's one of the most realistic games I've ever played, and it has a great storyline that's really lifelike, but I won't ruin it by telling you. This game is far from easy, it is challenging and frustrating at the same time. Which brings me to the only complaint I have with this game. You have a limited arsenal, this whole game is based around stealth, way more so than the Metal Gear series. And it's way more prevalent. The graphics are spectacular, the lighting effects and how the shadows of you and your enemies show up is very realistic indeed. And when you run through a plastic strip door the plastic flails just like it would if you ran through it in real life. The control is pretty decent, but it can get a tad bit flimsy sometimes, but not enough to make the game unbearable. The sound and music in the game adds to the suspense and overall quality of the game. Michael Ironside is also the voice of Sam Fisher (the character you play as). If you don't know who he is, he played Jester in "Top Gun." If you've never seen that movie, then you're pathetic and therefore don't deserve to play this game in the first place. Splinter Cell is a great addition to your PS2 library, and while you might feel like throwing your controller against the wall when you play it, it's well worth all the frustration you will (not might, WILL) experience....more info
  • This is one heck of a fun game...
    First things first...if you want a slash-and-run game, this is not what you're looking for.
    Splinter Cell is obviously a secret-agent-who-gets-things-done kind of game. The storyline is interesting, but not terribly original. What is fun is watching the 'News' in the Splinter Cell world.

    The action in this game is similar to Metal Gear Solid 2. Even though this not as advanced as MGS2 as ar as character moves go, it still has plenty of cool moves. Guns are sparse, but you learn to love the ones you get. Whenever you's out of bullets, you can still knock out your enemies by shooting them with your sticky-cameras.

    All in all, a very fun game....more info
  • Stealth wins out over brute force
    Splinter Cell is one of the greatest PS2 games out on the market.

    Why you ask?

    Splinter Cell is unique in the game market since instead of using brute force i.e.; gunning everything in sight, the player has to use stealth and evasive techniques to avoid the baddies when trying to complete missions.
    The player controls Sam Fisher, an agent for the NSA. Armed with a varying array of weapons, lock picks, fiber optic spy cams...etc, Sam is sent on a number of missions which require you to navigate Sam into the shadows and avoid detection while trying to attain objectives.

    Players will have a good list of actions available to get Sam to his destination undetected. The game controller is setup with the left analog joystick used to move Same while the right allows the user to pan the camera. I found this to be very useful in allowing me to look around corners without putting Sam into view.
    Left and right d-pad buttons allow for Sam to use the night vision /thermal goggles he carries. Very helpful to see in the dark, which you'll hopefully be most of the time. The lighting in this game is very life like, so I've found it helpful to use the night vision in rooms that are in full light to help flesh out objects I might have missed when searching a room.
    O button allows for Sam to crouch down. Since the object of the game is to try to complete these missions undetected, crouching offers a number of different advantages. Aside from the obvious, hiding out of sight, crouching while jumping down from a high place, softens the impact, thus making less noise.
    Triangle button is useful for jumping. In Splinter Cell you can have Sam jump to and from ledges, off of walls, or go down a zip line. If you're in a narrow corridor, you can even do a split jump and wedge yourself with your legs flayed out. Baddies can walk below you all while being undetected.
    X button allow for numerous tasks such as repelling off of a building, opening doors, or grabbing a bad guy to interrogate. I found that when I hid in the shadows and waited for a guard to get close and turn around, I would crouch and sneak up behind him. Hitting the X button allowed me to put him in a head lock and hold a gun to his head. From there you can pump the guy for info, make them do something, like stand for a rental scan, or you can hit the R1 button to just knock them out.
    R2 button allows the used of a varying array of weapons at your disposal. Sam has the standard 9mm with silencer, which is helpful in taking out opponents as well as knocking out light bulbs to insure your stealth. Each mission you'll be equipped with different weapons or tools, wether they be a 9mm, or assault rifle, or even a laser microphone. They're all pretty much accessible via R2 button.

    The graphics in Splinter Cell are superb. Actually better than other games I've played like Vice City or even Ghost Recon. Shading and lighting as well as color are incredible and very life like in this game. I thought the night vision was easier on the eyes instead of the greenish tinge night vision that Ghost Recon uses, Splinter Cell uses a black and white tinge to the night vision, which I feel allows you to see more clearly into darken area and make out objects better.

    Splinter Cell, however, is much more than just a "shoot'em up" game. As I stated above, the game is more stealth and evade. With that in mind solutions to reaching these goals are not apparent. I spent a good deal of time examining the environment that Sam found himself in before acting. Instead of barging through doors, I found it better to use the fiber optic camera that Sam carried to look under doors to see what/ who was here. From there you can develop strategy in how you're going to enter the room undetected, or if your cover is blown how to incapacitate your opponent. You'll definitely find that there is more than one way to tackle a problem in Splinter Cell. The missions may be linear, but the solutions to problem within each mission are not.

    Figuring out how to get Sam to act in a stealth manner isn't self evident.
    The training mission in the beginning of the game acts as a tutorial to practice your moves before going out into the real world. Here you'll practice all the running, jumping, climbing, hiding and evasion techniques you'll need to be the best covert ops agent there is.

    Overall, I put Splinter Cell on my must buy list and must have for any hard core gamer....more info

  • this game is not like metal gear its complitle defrent

  • Not for Everyone
    I normally don't review a game before I've completed it, but, a quarter through, I feel the need to write a few words about Splinter Cell, a game which, for me, requires too much stealth. I've been hearing great things about this shooter for years, but now that I'm playing it I just don't understand what all the fuss was about. So far--and again, I'm hoping my lack of enthusiasm will vanish by Cell's half-way point--I'm just bored: I need explosions, blood, and gadgets galore, accompanied by an enthralling score that is a bombastic as the explosions. What I don't need is crouching and crawling and creeping around while trying to avoid what I want most: action, confrontation, and destruction. If anything, this game, so far, has made me appreciate even more a game I loved from the instant I pressed "start": Project Snowblind, an action-packed, though underrated extravaganza of bullets, bombs, great graphics and terrific music. Again, I'm hoping this review is premature; I'm hoping that at some point during the game Sam Fischer will stand erect, take aim and let the bullets fly...I'm hoping....more info

  • Sam Fisher vs. Snake *pow* Sam wins
    Brilliant. Truly brilliant. Here's the lowdown.

    1. The best graphics ever seen in a video game.
    2. Perfect difficulty (at least for me)
    3. Utterly addicting
    4. Two weapons, one with multifunctions, that is so brilliant.
    5. AI is the best I've ever seen.
    6. Great music actually WORKS WITH YOU while you play (it changes to something more dramatic when an enemy hears or spots you)
    7. Missions when you cant kill anyone are so hard they are awesome!
    8. Perfectly placed checkpoints

    9. Awesome moves can be performed.
    10. Interactive environment is PERFECT, COMPLETELY PERFECT.
    11. Intense feel of danger
    12. Plot that takes place WITHIN the game, not in cutscenes.
    13. When the in game plot peaks at the last level, you will be utterly suprised at what Ubisoft can do.

    1. Why can't the game be longer?!!!! Please make the next one longer!!!!
    2. The CIA level with all the keycodes and not being able to kill people is so hard!

    Buy this. NO matter the price, buy it, just buy it....more info

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is the best game I've ever played, and these are some of the reasons why:

    1. Graphics: This game has the best graphics I'v ever seen on a PS2 system, and I've heard that they are even better on XBox.

    2. Variety: As Sam Fisher, you can do a variety of different moves to escape, incapacitate, or kill your enemy. Some include: crouching*, mantling, climbing, close attack, back to wall (B2W)*, shimmying, hand-over-hand*, zip line, rolling, wall jump, split jump*, drop attack, quiet landing, door peek, rappelling*, grabbing, human shield*, interrogation, and forced cooperation. (* = can shoot while doing this)

    3. Ememy AI: The enemies in this game are so realistic that you fell like you are in the room with them. They have conversations with each other and have other life-like features.

    4. Great Storyline: I don't want to give a lot away, but I'll just say that the story in SC could easily happen in real life and that Sam Fisher works for the U.S. government. You'll have to find the rest out for yourself.

    5. Strategy: This game is not for you if you don't want to have to think and use strategy. There's practically no information given to you and you have to find your way through often complex levels.

    6. Ease of Use: The controls (for PS2 at least) are some of the easiest I've ever seen on a role-playing game. After the first level, I didn't even have to look down at the controller to know what I was doing.

    7. Weapons and Gadgets: Thoughtout the game, you only get two guns, but don't let this get you down. The second gun you get (SC-20K M.A.W.S.) is probably one of the most useful guns in any game. Equipped with a silencer and sniper mode, you can do more than just shoot bullets. Some non-lethal weapons you can shoot with this gun are: ring airfoils, sticky cameras, sticky shockers, and distraction cameras. Other gadgets you have are: gas grenades, laser mic, camera jammer, optic cable, disposable pick, binocular/heat-vision/night-vision headset, wall mines, flares, chemical flares, and frag grenades.

    Well, there are a lot more great aspects about this game, but I can't list them all. So, to reiterate, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is at the top of the list in stealth-action games. Go out and buy it today! I guarantee you will not be disapointed.

    Note: There is a sequel to this game (Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow) coming out on March 18, 2004. I have already pre-ordered it, and I reccomend you do to. You can check out Splinter Cell at and Pandora Tomorrow at info

  • BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!
    If you've ever liked strategic role-playing games, spying, or Tom Clancy, you will absolutely love this game!!! It has 10 suspensful, stealth-action levels that can only be from Tom Clancy. This game gets 10 out of 5 stars for being the most fun game I've ever played on any system. I have it for PS2, but I'm sure its just as fun for X-Box, Gamecube, and PC. I do have one warning, though. If you do not like a lot of strategy and thinking, this game is probably not for you. It's also not a really good idea if you get nightmares easily because some parts are a little scary. So, go out today and buy this game! I guarantee you will not be disapointed.

    Note: When I first played this game, I really didn't like it because of the first level. This is only my opinion, but I really didn't care for the Police Station. However, don't let this discourage you, the rest of the levels are awesome!...more info

  • Splinter Cell is one great action/stealth game!
    This is a GREAT game! First, let me start off by saying this game is well worth the heafty price tag. You will spend hours upon days upon weeks, and possibly months, on this brilliant game! Splinter Cell is first and foremost and action/stealth game, but can appeal to any gamer. The graphics are outstanding and feature some of the best animation, lighting, and shadowing of any game on any console EVER-they look exactly the same as the Xbox graphics, for those of you that have your doubts. The enviorments are all varied in style and substance, and interactive-you can shoot out lights, use bottles and other objects for weapons, etc. The CIA Infiltration level alone is worth this game's purchase! It is just that good, solid fun! The controlls are great and many weapons and undercover gadgets come into play at very unexpectied and useful spots. One of the cleverest gadgets are the Opticable camera that looks under doors, and sticky cameras that can be reused as both a camera and a very painful weapon if hit in the head by an enemy! The sound and voice acting are decent to, with great moody and tense music, great sound effects, and nice cutscenes and cinematics. The gameplay itself is the biggest plus in the game. The missions are all very diverse, detailed, and will take even skilled and veteran gamers many an hour to complete. Even though the missions can become frustrating and many drag on far to long, they always are fresh and feel exciting and new. All in all, Splinter Cell is a must buy for every gamer. Ubisoft has created a masterpiece, with phenomenal graphics and sound, to killer, deep and inovative gameplay that everyone with a PS2 should experience. 5 out of 5-YOU WILL NOT REGRET YOUR PURCHASE!...more info
  • Not very fun, but cool on story mode!
    Well, Tom Clancy first made the books, now video games? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Halo Combat Evolved & Rainbow six were a knock-out at the time. This game was cool on spying... really good on spying ...more info
  • Takes Some Getting Used To, But Really Good! (Honest Review)
    I have to say, I was really skeptical about this series. I mean, a whole game based on stealth? But hey, I figured I would give it a shot. Needless to say I was not dissapointed. Rather, I was pleasantly surprised with the results.

    Right off the bat, this game takes some getting used to. Not just the controls, but the way in which the game works. I myself am so used to running into a room and shooting everything in sight. This game simply does not allow this kind of gameplay. You must sneak around, do things quietly, and be sure not sound too many alarms or your mission is aborted and you lose. Some missions you can kill your enemies, other times you must simply knock them out. Either way, you are constantly concealing you actions by hiding bodies and keeping to the shadows.

    At first, I found this gameplay to be very frustrating. But after about 5 hours of playing, I started to get the "hang" of it. From that point on, I became addicted. There are so many replayability options, so many different ways to complete a mission, that the game never loses its fun. The gadgets and weapons that are available are also very cool and fun to use. You may need to look at a walkthrough now and then, but other than that the game is basically trial and error.

    I loved this game so much that I decided to buy the second game in the series, Pandora Tomorrow. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because of the dated graphics and the need for improvement in other areas. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a different, yet extremely enjoyable game, look no further. Splinter Cell is a great game. ...more info
