Gamespot: Great storytelling makes the short campaign entertaining, but it's in the fun co-op modes that this stealth/action hybrid truly shines.

still, i agree Natrsu Batman AA is still one of the games I CAN play and haven't =( i still need to check that out

My comment was deleted, all I said was that this place is starting to get really annoying with all the juvenile comments, flame-baiting, flaming, spoilers, blah blah blah. I guess I was deleted for being off-topic? I dunno.

It's a shame, though.

I look forward to playing Splinter Cell tomorrow when it arrives from GameFly, but I already know all of the plot twists because of the spoilers let loose around here (they really went all-out with this one, having spoilers not only in the comments, but also in the titles of "alternate sources" that they submitted to lots of the Splinter Cell articles). It should still be enjoyable though.

And at the "maybe not AAA" comments, look... AAA has nothing to do with review scores. It's more or less a budget thing. This game is AAA, no question about it. Years in development, millions of dollars invested, tons of television advertisement. That's AAA. Doesn't matter if it gets less-than-9 review scores. Just like some games can get over-9 review scores, and it doesn't make it AAA, because it's a smaller game without the advertising budget and the public appeal. Like Braid, for example.

I can live with that. Like I said, this game will end up around 88-91 so it is expected that 80s scores will be coming in. Just got back from Gamepost Midnight launch and can't wait to play this game tomorrow. Good nite everyone and happy gaming.

Fair score for a 5-hours long game with sub-par graphics.

Guys Keep in mind that Ubisoft have been working on this project for 5 years so believe it could have definitely been better.

i've only played a few levels so far, but it's really weird how rushed it feels for a game that was in the oven for so long. even compared to the e3 demo, there's stuff it didn't follow through on. maybe i'm not far enough in, but none of the levels feel like a 'mini-sandbox' like they claimed last year after they re-revealed. the mechanics don't gel that well for me, and there's something about the controls that just feels off. the plot feels like an episode of 24 on crack, and the awkward flashback tutorial for mark and execute had me laughing at sam's relationship with his daughter instead of binding me to it.

but i'm only a few levels in, i'm trying really hard to reserve my judgment for when i finish. i'm hoping it gets better from here and this is just a bad first impression. but it feels.. kind of sloppy right now.

DARK WITNESS3019d ago

@ mistajeff

you know what, I don't know if it's fair for me to say this, but I felt exactly the same.. but I got that feeling just from playing the demo.

Everyone else loves it, so I guess I should shut up because I am just being a hater. Truth be told though, I am a huge SC fan, but everything you pointed is pretty much how I felt from the demo.

I said it in another comment about the game when people kept going on about the not carrying bodies anymore crap, and I said it there, for me the issues is a more then just not carrying bodies .

anyway, when you finish it I would really love to hear what you overall thoughts are on it.

Just PM me with your honest opinion.

The game was only in the "oven" for about 2 years. They scrapped the first development cycle, and started over around mid 2008.
