Msxbox-world asks the question after viewing the Abandoned Warehouse video whether the game has shifted its focus towards action more than stealth?
I've been thinking this too, since they showed the E3 trailer. Splinter Cell is good because of the focus on stealth (which imo was much better than MGS, but not as good as Thief), it seems like they are straying too far from the formula that made SC great.
It's funny you say that. I've never been a splinter cell fan, I've played a couple of them but never enjoyed them at all. Yet this one is the first that I think looks really good. Early trailers of Sam mashing some guy up in the toliets looked full on brutal. I fully admit I'm biased because I'm a huge MGS fan but I think Splinter Cells latest outing looks really good. To me, it looks a lot better than previous outings.
Yeah, I understand, I'm also a huge MGS fanboy, but I liked Splinter Cell because it's stealth was more in depth. Also the fact that you could jump between narrow corridors etc. was awesome. But as I said before, if you are a stealth fan, Thief is the BEST, which is why I also can't wait until Thief 4 AKA Thi4f (wtf?)
Am I the only guy who actually listened to what the devs said in the interviews they did at the Time E3 was in effect? They Said that if you play the game in real life mode You wont be able to rush in and you'll probably die from being hit by few bullets. So you'll have to use Stealth to go trough the game. I'd guess that what we've seen at this time in the gameplay videos are played at a normal difficulty so they can show us all the moves and stuff you can do .
i watched a few trailers the other night, and conviction is actually starting to look really good, reminds me alot of uncharted 2 in some ways, like the hand to hand combat moves and the way he drags people off ledges, splinter cell is looking great! i was hesitant, i didnt think it looked good at the start, but looking at recent trailers i take that all back.
Uncharted 2 is way better then this, this game looks like the first one. I like the ps3 now .
ok, just shut up please. it isn't funny.
WTF? The #1 M$ cheerleader just had an identity crisis.
I think this and uncharted are even but that's my opinion. (expects many disagrees from all the UC2 fanboys)
We want more cutscenes!!! j/k It's not that it's less stealthy, it's just that they have made the stealth action much more intuitive and immersive than in other stealth games. Looky here: http://www.gamersyde.com/st...
Let's hope you can do either rather than be forced into gunfights etc.
My thoughts exactly. I hope Ubisoft have considered this too.
They already said we could do what we wanted so its your choice
Totally irrelevant comment to make. You've played SC:C to make such bold claims? If not then STFU and GTFO. :o)
Thank jesus christ this game is on xbox 360 most ps3 owners arent used to playing games since most off their so call games have over 6 hours off cut scenes iff ps3 owners ever got a chanche to play this game they will probaly turn like apes and shoot their 5 year old sisters
This game will be on ps3 just a few weeks after it's released. It will have better graphics, less bugs and extra content ect. Thanks for beta testing though, I appreciate it. ;-D!
why is there 2 MetalGearRising ACcounts??????????? I want a Zhuk account.
After the Bots beta test this on their crapbox360.
Looks like the bots had their minds blown after playing Uncharted 2.
Uncharted 2 sells over 300,000 on day one
lol @ beta testing. Keep bringing your hopes up, I want to see them crash. Also has this guy played the game? If not then he should STFU and wait to make a real review.
The oh so inferior ODST sold what? 2.2 Million in one day? You are boasting about 300,000? lolz! Not hating on Uncharted 2, just on your statements. @Clearlycanadian420 Bots are too busy gaming, probably playing ODST, the droids are busy too, as you can see with Shadow Man. FYI - I don't trust VGCharts.com, so both of those daily figures mean nothing to me. *goes back to gaming*
lol bots trying to get some bubbles hahah ..
Look at this bot circle jerk feel like I am in that movie Idiocracy.
and sounds like they dumbed this game down so 7 year ol..I mean the majority of 360 owners would have their moms buy it
It has a greater aspect of action, but was really razzes my jimmy, is to know that you can jump from stealth to action on the fly, there's many elements of gameplay, and most of all; I'm loving/hoping there aren't anymore stupid issues like "oh I bumped into a table and a soda can fell over, NOISE, mission fail...WTF?!" this maybe a great game, at the level of Arkham. Uncharted 2 is untouched and the 360 can't resolute graphics like that. BTW, Uncharted 2 has no ingame installs or loading. And produces graphics like that. I never want to hear 360 CPU crap again. PS3 + Celltech + bluray = pure perfection. Once you play the train level, and see that there are no framepops and nothing loads in, you are really there feeling and existing in a really amazing world.
Why do you always have to talk about uncharted 2? every ps3 fanboy brings that game or GT5 and compares it to any game they don't like no matter what genre is it. JUST SHUT UP ABOUT IT
ughh...i kinda hate it. I'm a huge splinter cell fan, I've beaten all of the games, and I like the series for what it is, I don't want it to be something different. It seems like the whole game is running around those STUPID railings/ledges, quick as hell, not the sneaking around I liked. Will NOT be picking this up, like they say, don't fix it if it's not broken!
Splinter Cell is probably my favourite game series of all-time. I think it does stealth better than any game out there. This game looks to be expanding on that. It still looks stealth to me, just has more options if you don't like waiting in the shadows for patrols to pass by. I have no doubt that Ubisoft is going to please fans of the series while bringing in new ones. Good job!
This game will have lots of stealth also. I figure they haven't made any videos of an in depth stealth moment because well....the action will compel more people. Can't wait.
This is how "The Bourne Conspiracy" should've been played.
A little off topic but I only enjoyed the first Splinter Cell cuz after that the controls started to suck.
