The first 10 minutes: Splinter Cell 3

The first 10 minutes: Splinter Cell 3

This first 10 minutes is a bit special since this is a video from the third level (The Bank) of the game. The first level you have all already seen in the demo, and the beginning of the second one is really not that interesting. So here it is, enjoy the laser show!



I can't say how great this game is enough. You may know I'm really really bad at stealth game (even Zelda was a problem for me...), but here am I totally enjoying this new Splinter Cell, thanks to the Quick Save feature. Finally, I do not have to painfully go through 10 guards to go back to where I lost, I just save my game after each guard or action. Some will think this may make the game too easy or short, but believe me, you will have to play a loooooong time to get a 100% score out of all 11 levels.

Ubisoft really managed to make the almost perfect game. My only issue would be the framerate that can get quite low from time to time. Of course a "slow" game like Splinter Cell is still very playable in these conditions, but it can still get annoying. It does not happen that often, but when it happens it's quite brutal, especially in coop mode. Everything else is just fantastic, graphics, sound, effects, coop mode (just make sure you save often, as disconnections can happen), gameplay, you name it. This is a must buy!
