"The game's okay, but it can be stupidly easy."

I've loved the Splinter Cell franchise for a while, and this was one of my main points of buying an Xbox 360, only to be disappointed by the stupidly easy AI, or if put on a higher difficulty, the stupidly difficult AI. Playing the game on normal difficulty, the AI are so braindead. It takes them a long time to detect you, and when they do, all it takes is to climb up something, and they're completely oblivious as to where you are. There were 2 men standing next to each other, I shot one of them, and the other guy didn't even notice. And when you put it on higher difficulty, the AI can detect you when they aren't even in the same room. Sure, the game can be a lot of fun, and I'm glad to see all the stealth action back. But when it is this easy, it takes away the fun and stops the game feeling so intense, knowing that if you get spotted, you just jump onto the rooftop. The old Splinter Cells were really difficult, which is why I don't get why this is so easy. I'd prefer it to be easy than stupidly difficult, but this game is just taking it a bit too far. I have to admit that the levels are very well varied, it has an army level, which involves very little stealth, it kinda surprised me, but it was a lot of fun, and then it goes back to the normal stealth. It's very well set out. The graphics look great too, with good lighting effects overall.

Gameplay- The gameplay is quite fun, but again, it's far too easy and doesn't give you any satisfaction when you complete a mission. But it's still quite unique and there aren't many games out there to match it.

Graphics- Game looks generally very good, with good lighting effects and a good 'shadow' system that you get when you're undetected. But it's not quite up to standard with most of the games from that time.

Sound- Nothing really special to mention or talk about there.

Value for Money- The game isn't exactly long, it's actually quite short and very easy to play through. So it's not worth the full price, but if you can get it cheap, I do think you should buy it.

Overall- The game is generally good, but it can get boring and it's far too easy. But if you love Splinter Cell, you get a good taste of it again, and it'll keep you going until the next Tom Clancy game, or the next Splinter Cell.
