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 Sam knocks grabs or knocks out a guard while he holds his weapon in his hands, the guard will never drop the weapon, not even after picking him up or dropping him. See more »

great after a few tries
2 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

when i first got it as a gift i barely played it. i couldn't stand the training level because they were quite difficult for me (that should tell you that i'm not a gamer). but after a while, once i got used to the game, and played the police station level for a while, i started to love this game. the graphics are amazing on the xbox. i also have the ps2 version and there are slight differences between them. at first i used to think that the game sucked because you only get a certain amount of bullets. however the purpose of the game is to use your gun as a last resort. you have to distract, sneak around shadows, hang above people (y-split). i compare it to goldeneye for the n64 because splinter cell and goldeneye, in my opinion, made the consoles look much better. i spent a LOT of money on the james bond games looking to emulate goldeneye but after i found splinter cell and timesplitters 2, my search is over.
