Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Allows approaching missions in different ways
In this version of Splinter Cell, both stealth and combat are viable ways of approaching missions, enabling players to choose from mission-to-mission how they want to handle things.
Pro Longevity through mission scoring
At the end of each mission, you earn a score based on how you were able to succeed. In order to earn all the trophies for each mission, certain objectives must be met. This will take many playthroughs, extending the length of the game.
Con Bad server connections/coding issues
Some people are completely unable to connect to the online functions of the game – not even to download DLC. These issues have never been fixed by Ubisoft, who simply suggest you format your PC and try again. Of course, this doesn’t help. Do your homework on this issue before buying the game if you’re interested in the online modes.
Con Action might be off-putting to old-school Splinter Cell fans
The addition of action elements might be a turn-off for veterans of the franchise.
