That's a worthy score. My mind was already made up anyway : )

Nice!

They are the most respectable Gaming Magazine currently out. Every issue is solid.

I think this fanboy wanted a 10

Spydiggity2879d ago

is one of those games where regardless of review scores, you probably already know if you are going to buy it or not There are about 10-15 franchises where that's the case, and splinter cell is definitely one of them.

jamesgtaiv2879d ago

Game informer is owned by Gamestop corp. It makes sense they would give it a high review. Im not saying its a bad game, Im just saying Game informer always gives anticipated games high scores so they can make floor sales. Wouldnt you if you owned gamestop?

I guess, first Edge was biased, now Game Informer and finally IGN as well:

That is right

Edge 8/10
GI 9/10
IGN 9.3/10

It's looking like a great game!!!

I wonder why all this hate? There is a PS3 version, it will be released and most PS3 gamers will gobble it up. Don't hate simply because you don't have the equipment to play it. Hate it if it sucks and apparently, it doesn't.

ive always trusted gameinformer mags, if they give scc a 9, then i will no longer doubt scc.

gameinformer- 9
Redrum059- 9

actualy i take this comment back, i trust gameinformer still but scc is still pending for me.

10+ hours for a single player campaign and i could understand and respect all the good scores....i remember everyone getting on GoW3 for being 8 hours long...yet game reviewers are finishing the SP in 5 hours...being in production for so long you would think that Ubi would put more into the story since it is very interesting and unique

Marquis_de_Sade2878d ago

Without bashing GoW3, it is SP only, Splinter Cell has a multiplayer component, so the shorter campaign length is almost excusable.

FLOP!

Have you played the demo? I did and it was fun, I like the more less dependency of stealth... usually if you blow something by mistake in the first 10 seconds the whole mission is blown but with this the stealth is like and intelligent way not to die. It was real good... I played it through it twice .

Wrathman2879d ago (Edited 2879d ago )

holy crap..it must be good if you say it is.your one of the biggest ps3 fanboys on this site.ill take your review over any websites, anyday!

im shocked!

who wants to bet that the ps3 fanboys rush in here and say 'man,ill just get this for the pc' or 'it'll run sweet on my killer gaming rig usin a pirate copy'

so predictable

mrv3212879d ago

Read my comments, I openly admit to owning the 360 and enjoying Halo 3 having completely the singleplayer TWICE! I like the 360 as a console, the PS3 is my console of choice by far in a away due to the fact it was my first console and the one which is set up to better use the ease of play.

I have admitted to woning a PC but cannot run any new games and as such my PC game is Tiberian Sun or Wars.

I am not a PS3 fanboy, I just reply to 360 fanboys acting like a PS3 one causing them to retaliate hoping to get them banned.

kissmeimgreek2879d ago

I like your style of being a PS3 fanboy and actually admitting that the 360 has some great games. Its nice to find a reasonable person when looking through all of the idiots on this site.

mesh12878d ago (Edited 2878d ago )

mrv ur ps3 fanboy but as u finally purchased a 360 ur finally realizing reality that most 360 games are far better than ps3 games fact

edit; or i forgot gameinformer a pro ps3 site tbh ! fact

mrv3212878d ago

I bought a 360 after I bought a PS3... so what, you probably only own a 360.

I'll add you on PSN, for you to understand the games you must play them, I've completed Uncharted 2 and found it outstanding but that does not stop me admitted Gears 2 is also really good, is it better? Well it's all a matter of opinion, I found myself liking Uncharted 2's singleplayer more because of the colour and the varied environments, if you removed the brown from Gears 2 it'd end up being like that black and red Nintendo game, but that does not really impact the quality of the Gears 2 singleplayer.

I'm glad to see 9/10, it's strange to think of it but a 9/10 usually means better than 10/10 because 10/10 means there's a lot of hype and the reviewers fell into that.

Brklynty12879d ago

They gave MW2 a 9.5 and the boys went balistic on them

Mexico6192878d ago

they gave MW2 a 9.75 not a 9.5

the best game in the series. Good job Ubisoft.

peowpeow2878d ago

Not for me...(yet?)
I really prefer longer sp :( but if the gameplay makes up for it and satisfies me beyond my expectations then yes (Y).

thebudgetgamer2879d ago

if they say a game is good eight times out of ten i agree with them.

ikkeweer2879d ago

never a site though.
I have a dutch site which I follow, but I understand which reviewers to trust for my liking and which to avoid. Theyre all pretty reliable and wouldn't burn a game if it's good, but you somehow figure out which of them look at games as you do.
I trust certain reviewers, but never their employers.
