Sam Fisher is an elite Black-Ops agent called the Splinter Cell. When two government operatives undercover in Georgia go missing, Sam is sent in by the Third Echelon to investigate. He discovers that the Georgian president is conspiring with mercenaries and computer experts for some kind of master plan, and despite Sam interrogating various involved members, he has a hard time getting further information, until its too late. What follows is a maelstrom of conspiracies, political backstabs, and complete pandemonium. Written by Kerwin Tsang

Did You Know?


Originally, 'Tom Clancy' rejected the idea of Sam Fisher having trifocal goggles, stating that goggles with both heat vision and night vision are impossible to make. The creators argued that having two separate sets of goggles would make for awkward gameplay and convinced Clancy to allow it. See more »


When Fisher is in the Osprey en route to his first mission, Grimsdottir is standing behind him, hands on his shoulders. The camera view that Lambert has of Fisher shows nobody behind him. See more »

excellent game for anybody!
12 July 2008 | by (north wales, UK) – See all my reviews

When I was off work for many months with broken leg, I had nothing to do, so I brought an xbox, splinter cell is a budget games with everybody saying how good it is, believe me, it is good! For the xbox and P.C., the graphics are very good, I believe for PS2 they turned the graphics quality down, but they were still very good by PS2 standards. This game took ubisoft five years to develop, and it shows! The controls are easy to master on the xbox version, it totally gripping, very believable, running around with lots of guns will never happen in real life, hence why in splinter cell, for the first few levels, you get a silenced pistol, with very limited ammo, so ideally you don't use it, you have to think around how to get somewhere, how to moves to a certain locations, avoiding guards, knocking guards out, cleaning pipes and walls, action blending nicely with real life problems you might except in the real world of espionage, the object of each level is basically get in, get out, without anybody knowing you are there at all, tricky, mistakes either let the guards know your there, or get you killed. I'd recommend this game to anybody, and as it's so cheap on most formats now, trying it won't dent your wallet either!
