Storyline

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

User Reviews

great game-play ... combined with an extremely fascistic story
27 February 2005 | by jonjo-2See all my reviews

Even though the game-play is great the story implies a world view which gives me the creeps. The essential freedoms and the human rights can only be protected if the "good guy" break undermine these rights? Terrorist and unliked politicians have to be executed. Not even the government is being informed...because it is just the right thing. Even though many games use these ideas the normally don't promote them in such a naive propagandistic style.

With such naive distinction between good and evil implicating that the end always justifies the means, promotes fascistic ideas. it is a shame that such a great game is being destroyed down by the infantile world view of its designers.

game-play 4.5 out of 5 story ought better be banned
