Splinter Cell: Stealth Action Redefined

Recently, I have borrowed this amazing computer game from a friend. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell has been nominated "Console Game of the Year" and, after playing it for just ten minutes, I could see why. You experience the best in Nintendo Gamecube graphics when you play this game (the picture is a little fuzzy). This screenshot, showing an undercover agent known as Sam Fisher (whom you play as), is taken from actual gameplay. The movement of the characters is what really caught my eye. There are many ways to evade guards and successfully complete your mission such as: leaning against the wall, hanging from pipes on the ceiling, climbing ladders, creeping along the floor, using night vision...you can do practically anything. In the "9 pulse-pounding stealth missions from the world of Tom Clancy", you are to find out who is behind the uprising in Georgia, Soviet U.S.S.R., and "you have the right to spy, steal, destroy, and assassinate to ensure that American freedoms are protected. And if you are captured, the U.S. government will disavow any knowledge of your existence. You are a Splinter Cell." I have thoroughly enjoyed this game and highly recommend it to all computer gamers. Rated TEEN for blood and gore (of which I have seen none) and violence.

I am sorry but I do not agree that "Splinter Cell" is a cool game... That's just my thought.
