Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Trilogy HD Review | Geared for Gamers

It has been almost 10 years since the original Splinter Cell debuted on the PlayStation 2 and a year since the release of the most recent entry in the franchise, Splinter Cell: Conviction. Now here we are at the tail-end of 2011 and another HD re-mastering of old PS2-era classics appears with Splinter Cell HD Collection. This collection contains the first 3 games of the franchise which appeared on the PS2, Xbox, and PC. Packed within the HD Collection are Splinter Cell HD, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow HD, and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory HD. Sadly, that’s about it. If you want a refresher course in the historical rise of Sam Fisher and third Echelon, there is no better way to do it than with this set. But if you want to keep up with the adventure and were hoping to pick up Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and Splinter Cell: Conviction in this collection, it turns out that that wasn’t meant to be and you’ll have to pick up the current generation iterations separately.

No inverted aim on any of the 3 games is an instant fail.

The titles are not PS2 upgrades but rather ports of the PC versions. All of which had this feature (as did the console versions).

In the EU the games were sold individually. In the US, they are only available as a bundle. It seems the lack of inverted Y, when discovered in the first title, prevented sales of the latter two in the EU. Ubisoft and Sony seem to have found a way to insure they get all of your money in one shot stateside.

It should be understood that the lack of inverted controls is not a feature without which a gamer can manage. Just as no one chose to be right or left handed, the need for inverted controls is not a player decision.

When the game is rendered unplayable for such a large portion of the population, it loses an immediate 5 points in my book even before I look at the fact all multiplayer was removed.

I play inverted and I have to say I am very appalled at the lack of a feature which is considered game-breaking. The gaming community wouldnt be this quiet or ignorant to the fact if it was Invert aim ONLY (without the option to play non-inverted). Its discrimination.

Like being sold a pen and then being told you can only use your right hand, even if you are left handed.

I figured if Ubisoft dont get their shit together by the end of this year and patch it, im pirating the game for PC.
