You act as the top spy in the game and your only advantage is that the enemies don't know you are there. So basically you have to get everything right because even one slight noise can cause guards or guard dogs to come and check. The graphics in the game are some of the best I've seen so far, very detailed textures and backgrounds, and the cenimatic storyline is very intense. A MUST HAVE game if you like mind-challenging games.
UbiSoft have really out done themselves with Splinter Cell.
They have created a game environment with an unbelievable amount of detail.
From the main character to the lighting used in the game, every moment is a white knuckle affair as you try to use the shadows to hide your every move.
A must have for any one who would call themselves a gamer.
Infiltrate terrorists' positions, acquire critical intelligence by any means necessary, execute with extreme prejudice, and exit without a trace!
