Splinter Cell is the latest series to join the expanding list of video games getting a new HD coat of paint.
maybe... Is number 2 any good?? Had 1 for ps2, never finished it but loved it. Had 3 for DS and thought it was great.
3>1>2 To answer the question.
I am buying if it comes out on disk and the quality is close to the gow collection. I loved the gow collection and I can't wait for ico and shadow of the colossus collection. not too excited about the tomb raider and pop trilogy tho. One of the reasons is I never played chaos theory probably bcoz i played 1 and 2 right before that game came out and i was like burnt out of splinter cell at that time and I cannot stand playing ps2 games on my hdtv even though i have the fat one with backwards compatibility.
Yeah i hope it comes to disc, i havn't bought any PoP from the PSN store, does anyone know a good website that has it for a low price and export to USA?
Never got to play these games, so is a buy for me! Played the first on my friend's XBOX, but we didn't play single player games much at his house. Three guys sitting around waiting for one guy to play a whole level is sud!
Played them all and it is still a day one purchase. It will be great to get back to a game where you can actually hide the bodies. Conviction may come to the PS3. I would rather have a complete game. In the recent issue of Game Developer the post mortem described the real reason Conviction lacked the body hide feature - time. Revamping the engine, particularly the wrestling match they had because of lighting, and the backpeddling on the entire design, left no time to fix certain issues or add a standard feature such as hiding bodies. Time. That is the real reason it was absent. People may disagree but then they would be arguing with the developers themselves. There is something entirely engrossing about that first Splinter Cell. I like Chaos Theory but I still remember shaking my head over the decision to remove Sam's gray hair. Absurd really. For those that like Chaos Theory more than the rest of the games, go buy yourself a Xbox 1 edition of Double Agent. There is no emo Sam, the levels and a great deal of the story are completely different from the PC/360/PS3 version, and the co-op is incredible.
i will buy it. wasn't splinter cell 3 heralded as the best original xbox game ever by official xbox magazine? i hope the online CO OP mode works too. CO-OP mode trailer. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Trailer brought a motherload of memories back. Still awesome now. Chaos theory was god. Conviction...
ok, Let's be honest with me, do i need to answer this question.
if they did not only improve the graphics, then sure - Chaos Theory is still one of the best games around. But if it still plays like ANY of those terrible PS2 Splinter Cell ports then hell no. Games were awful on the PS2 compared to the PC and Xbox.
I'd buy a big heap of dirt if it meant I could play chaos theory on PS3. Nuff said.
cmon Kojima! Where´s MGS trilogy HD???
If we get the PC or Xbox versions ported then i'm all for it. PS2 ones were meh in comparison and re-rezing them just won't fix that. To answer the question, 3>1>2 is about right although each had it's pluses.
Nope, I think ICO collection and god of war collection are better.
Nope i can play em on 360, great for ps3 fans. Il buy ico collection, mgs collection, and ffx-12 collection. That would make me go nuts, not whats been released so far although the gow one was a nice thing to build up to part 3, but i wont buy it either.
Yes definately. Splinter Cell 1, 2 and 3 in HD with Trophies. Well hopefully with Trophies. ;)
Games are required to release with trophy support now. @below Chaos Theory is my favorite as well.
Ah cool. Didn't know that thanks.
Splinter Cell Chaos Theory was my favourite. Completed that on Expert with every level at 100%.
You're after my own heart. Beating that game on expert 100% was the most rewarding thing of all time. Bath house!? OMFG so hard, and i didn't care that I wouldn't get any visible credit (trophy) for doing it. If the trilogy is released on PS3 and has the online multiplayer modes intact, you would have to be a damn fool not to buy it. One of the greatest multiplayer modes of all time.
i beat all splinter cells on expert, nothing big. yea, i have to brag. look at my avatar for crying out loud. that should say enough
Yes. I got 1 on PC, 2 on Xbox, 4 on 360. Getting the first 3 on the same console and in hd is worth the buy
Nope , not a fan . But i welcome the addition
Depends when it releases.
I plan to buy it.
For a second i tough that SC:Conviction was being ported to the PS3.
It strikes me as odd the trilogy is coming but not Conviction...
The odds are in favor of Conviction being ported to the PS3 eventually. It happened with all of it's predecessors.
You would have thought that, like The TI and GOW collections Ubi would have been clever to use this as a sales tool for a ported version of Conviction on the PS3-more brand awareness and all that OR maybe it's just to push the brand for the next multiplat SC game they're working on so PS3 owners know the name Same Fisher? Whatever, if it's to drum up support on the platform for the NEXT SC game I really think they'd have been best off releasing SC:C with it's broader range of gameplay mechanics(even if, as a longer term fan it isn't the SC game I'd ever have made myself)which would possibly appeal more to casual observers unfamiliar with both the stealth genre and the franchise itself, no? Personally I'd like to revisit CT and Pandora but IDK with so many other things coming up I'm desperate to buy next year. A BG&E box set with the first HD'd up and the new second as well would make me happier than either this OR the PoP tril or both put together, tbh.
conviction is a terrible addition to the series.
It was actually fairly entertaining to me. It wasn't true splinter cell, though, I agree. They need to take it back.
yep.. for me no sense to buy others splinter cell if Ubisoft don't plane to give me conviction in order to give me a full experience... I will wait for a collection edition WITH conviction...
xbox360 can upscale ever xbox game to 1080p with anti aliasing so we can play it in higher quality in xbox360 than ps3
There is a little more to the PS3 remakes than a simple upscale with line buffers. They have re-sampled textures for HDtv's. The xbox 360 can boot old games into 1080P but that just upscales the same game, textures and all, and stretches it into a higher rez. The end result is not the same as a full on HD remake. Thinking so is foolish.
and they need multiple disks ;)
@ muhaha No discs actually, you can download Chaos Theory over Xbox Live.
I had Gow1-2 on 60 gig PS3 and they upscale to 1080p, but they look nowhere near as good as the collection. And the 480p progressive scan looks less blurry than the 1080p upscale and looks better in many ways. the best result was the 480p progressive with the 1080p upscale, but for some reason this only works sometimes. Wasn't worth paying another $40 for two games I played the crap out of already. I almost bought it for the demo alone, but it came with District Nine, so there was no need!
ya, sure. i had the 1st and 3rd. didnt get to play Pandora Tomorrow. and you cant beat 3 games for one.
It'll be the perfect antidote to the stealth-free, dumbed down Conviction. Not only do I get to play the first three Splinter Cell games in a glorious HD makeover, they also come with trophy support. What more could I want.
nothing else, god has spoken my son
No, already played them all.
Defo, loved them back in the day so it would be great to revisit them :)
Chaos Theory was epic. Sooo gonna buy it! Plus that song in the main menu was awesome.
Yes. Already pre-ordered before confirmation. Why? Because I never played them. And 18pounds for all three titles is a good price. ^^
Nah. I'm not a big fan of the Splinter Cell series.
Probably not. Some great games without question but I've been there and done that.
yup. cant wait
Maybe. I loved the original but hated the hell out of Pandora Tomorrow for the stupid failures when you bumpinto a table and make noise. It was really frustrating. But with all the games coming out in 2011, I think I would definitely get the third one on PSN if it comes seperate. There's so much coming some games will have to wait.
Na. Found Splinter Cell series boring.
I'll buy it if they get rid of the stupid body carry requirement to finish some levels.
It's a great game no doubt. But if any of you already bought the PC version (like me all three of them). I think it's better to skip it. I think it will be the same version as PC but with added Trophies. Splinter Cell 3, the best EVER! The coop, gameplay storyline just top notch! Splinter Cell 3 with Shader Model 3 in some cases looks even better then the SC4 and Conviction.
Didn't even occur to me that they could use the PC version that likely has higher resolution textures and is built for 512mb ram or greater. It will be better than a PS2 remake and possibly nearly as good as a current gen game, seeing as how PC than was probably equal to current gen today... at least for SC3.
It may be possible considering that the game runs on native DirectX9c. So we can expect the game runs with full HDR at least with 720p native Anti Aliasing enabled. NOTE: Hey UBISOFT! How about a cross platform play with PC players! It would be great. Don't you think so? Although i cross my fingers for it to happen.
Never played the Splinter Cell games ever in my life so I'm considering it. Are they really that good? I'm a huge fan of stealth games.
They are excellent games, amongst the best stealth games you can get. If you haven't played them it will be well worth the money.
Oh, man. As far as purely realistic stealth games go, Thief and Splinter Cell are easily the greatest of all time. I consider Metal Gear to kind of be in it's own genre, based on it's style, so try not to fret over me not including it.
Absolutely correct. I didn't doubt it a bit. Splinter Cell IS THE stealth game, it's the best ever (Chaos Theory the best of the bunch). Metal Gear is a Tactical Espionage, basically both of them cannot be compared to each other.
But of course. I'm buying all the collections. All collections with two or three games and an irresistible price. Support trophies for each game. But I really wanted was a collection of Final Fantasy X and XII. (I dispense X-2) I hope that Square decides to launch.
I don't think I would get this HD remake. I have never cared for the series so no point starting now. This just has not been a series that I followed at all.
CVG: Splinter Cell Trilogy HD: Will you buy it? i want Trilogy of HD metal gear instead this turd..
Remastered with the MGS4 engine?!
Honestly that would be even better then the GOW Collection in my book. Konami would be fools not to do this.
When Koj won't even bow to the demand for trophies to be added to MGS4 or commit to the next home console MGS(6? after PW on PSP was said to be akin to MGS5)I think the highly desirable case of pure awsomesauce that an HD remake in the MGS4 engine of the run through MGS to Snake Eater would be top of any same person's remake list for HD on PS3. Hell, chuck an editor's cut of Guns on as well as a preamble to the NEXT MGS and I'd explode from too much awesome in one box! That said any news regarding MGS or ZOE games at this point would be greatly appreciated in this houseful of Kojima acolytes and scholars. Funnily, even though I still say MGS4 is the greatest game this console generation I , even I, was happy top see Kojima trying pastures new until I played PW on PSP which was as close to handheld perfection as I've ever had the chance to play and it could only have been better had it been on a home console and it fired me right up for more for my PS3/HDTV rather than my bus journeys. Plus, if Sam gets a collection Snake deserves one even more in my book! BTW, was I the only one who thought some of SC:C was hilarious?
They were good rentals when they came out.
All the PS2/GC versions of these games were gimped in one way or another.
I have no reason to believe they would use anything other than the PC/Xbox version for the remastering. The PS2/GC releases were definitely gimped, and every bit of praise I have given the series in this thread is surrounded around the fact that one played the Xbox or PC version of the game. Basically, I'm with you, they should really be mastered off of the PC version.
I hope you're right.
